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

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.

They are coming by next week for a high-profile demo for leadership. It doesn't come with a stylus but supports 3COM interface for a stylus. Looks like a sweet bit of gear, we're gonna get a few to test with full network integration...something we've been extremely recalcitrant to do with iOS/Android since our entire business network is moving to Win10.

Microsoft created an almost perfect OS for mobiles but sad that Satya is not interested in improving the platform just to prove that his opposition to acquisition of Nokia is right... Surface Phones may be a game changer - but until then HP Elite X3 would be good..
I don't want to compare XP Elite X3 with S7 or iPhone 6. I will compare these two mobiles with Lumia 735 - may be apt... Camera quality of Lumia 735 is on par with S7 Edge.. Audio recording is fantastic - much above both of these phones... Screen Quality - On par with S7 Edge... I like the tiles - it is mesmerizing if you get it properly.... There is absolutely no lag... I had a lag with S7 - though not much with iPhone... All the three mobiles required restarts due to hanging / slowing down as am a heavy user... I receive Windows Mobile 10 updates faster than Android / iOS - kind of re-assuring... Almost every app looks better in Windows Mobile 10 than S7 / iOS... Try ICICI banking app, Axis Banking App, Flipkart, IRCTC App, etc - most of these apps are much better on windows than any other platform owing to Microsoft Design guidelines....

I've used all platforms, and for me, windows is the only acceptable OS out there. I use my phone for business, I couldn't care less about apps beyond the standard social media apps, because I need good cameras, memory, office applications, a good integrated email and messaging system, and Microsoft out does apple and android in majority of these. If you want to game, do other creative stuff, sure, the other platforms might be better.
Abhi, 08 Sep 2016Comparing note7 vs iPhone 7 vs x3 .....X3 is 100% better than all On which department HP Elite X3 is better than S7 and iPhone 7 will you please elaborate me.I am much excited to know that hidden goodness of Windows phone.
[deleted post]You can use gigabit ethernet on it by a USB Type-C to gigabit ethernet adapter.
For YouTube go for Awesome Tube, it has all the features of the official YouTube client including uploads and has an extra ability to download videos to your device.
I got mine on Thursday. This is my first windows phone. So still trying to get used to it. Here're couple of observations so far
1. Turning into a desktop is very easy. Put the phone on cradle and put your keyboard/mouse usb adapter to it. Connect the DisplayPort to monitor. It works beautifully. Edge works almost like full desktop. Performance not up to a laptop, but acceptable. Websites are displayed as full website, not like phone version.
2. Iris scanner works, but with my first attempt I have to bring it close to my eye to make it work. It struggles when there's no light on face. Surface book work like a dream
3. Can't find finger print scanner settings
4. Battery life seems to be excellent (As expected)
5. Connecting to TV using Microsoft wireless adapter is nice. Youtube videos are exactly same as any computer played on TV.
6. Once connected to desktop, WhatsApp doesn't work
7. Once connected to desktop or wireless, phone become touch pad (may old news for those who already owned windows phone)
8. Not any bigger than my Nexus 6
9. Has wireless hotspot (one of my requirement)
10. USB OTG (connecting your camera card reader - SD and XQD) works great. I got a small USB c to regular USB adapter and it works.
Any tips and tricks with windows phone welcome :)
Rakib Hassan , 20 Aug 2016I am not that mad to buy a 700$ windows phone. Price sucksbut would you be mad enough to pay 900$ for a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge?
