This is a great concept which is let down by the execution. I think the Windows software holds this back.
Finally got mine through our firm's vendor route. We've placed orders for few more units of this phone.
So far everything about this phone is great, it's good for work but yeah it still feels bit cumbersome to carry around so I usually carry it in my suite pocket.
Sound quality via headphones is great. The phone is fast and snappy and after the recent Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary update it just works excellent. The display dock of this phone is ruggedly built and does have some weight to it. Overall it's a great phone for enterprise users.

Of course on Windows Phone 8.1 it was restricted but on Windows 10 Mobile there're no restrictions.
gaurav big-G, 28 Sep 2016How could you say Windows the best phone actually Windows is not even close to better somewhat... moreStop lying I just checked for the app called Hotstar and it is available in the store and it's a UWP app.
The office app on Windows 10 Mobile is good.
About YouTube well you can just use Awesome Tube, it is a UWP app, it has all the features of official YouTube client, like comment, subscription, live streams, uploads plus it lets you download videos to your device.
What's JIO, is it some sort of geolocation app?

AnonD-590077, 27 Sep 2016Best phone ever.best battery life everHow could you say Windows the best phone actually Windows is not even close to better somewhat 8.1 2nd update was better but after Windows 10 it's just pathetic always lag,poor battery,apps crashing frequently, No hotstar apps,No official YouTube apps,No JIO apps,Office package is just useless in Windows phone.Nobody going to buy Windows phone.Microsoft itself accepted that Windows OS is the bad choice if we go for the Smartphone.

Unlike Windows OS going to be more and more complicated and much complex user experience.Windows 10 still not optimised and Earlier Windows version 8.1 will not receive any further update.
Some people complain about its high price tag of $799 but that's just half truth, Enterprises which are allied with HP for PC supplies can avail special corporate discounts. The firm I work in has this facility too, since HP is the PC vendor for our firm we can get this phone at a manageable price of $650 which is quite okay.

Of course you're a Lumia 1520 user then this device is the perfect upgrade for you.

So true and this HP looks like a good replacement for my 1520 running windows 10. When the price e drops that is.

Android OS is the equivalent of whack-a-mole and IOS is waaaay over rated. Seriously dude, you need to use a Windows 10 Mobile for a while before you lay down the smack... I've got a 1020 and it's rocking along with the last Windows 10 Mobile fast release that it was allowed to have before they cut it off from the updates. It's still the best phone I've seen, however, I have not seen an HP Elite x3 yet... hopefully soon.
