This superb device is awesome, HP did a good job. I'd probably buy it if I was willing to spend much money on the latest hardware but for now my Lumia 930 is still good enough. This Elite a real smartphone and not meant for the Pokemon Go kids. I think this is the best Windows device to date with the most complete package you can get. The Lumia 950 and 950XL are almost a year old already.
AnonD-196068, 08 Aug 2016Hopefully you will find all the apps. you want especially as the WP global market share is now... moreIt may not be a viable option for PokemonGo players and that's OK. This is not made for the gamers, hipsters (that's Apple's territory) or for the tweakers (Android has that nailed). Is everyone asleep here ? Why is it so difficult to believe another OS outside of Android and iOS can be of any serious use to the enterprise ? (ok i cannot believe i just asked such a stupid question) This is an exceptional phone by function only, and because there's not a million fart apps and trivial games makes it a bad OS ? Let's see the ones reviews, it will sell. HP has done a good thing bringing this device to market. If you need games and flash and style, get the latest Samsung or iPhone !

"it has been force close after playing youtb video on edge browser" r u using fast ring/slow ring OS which is used for testing. Tell me honest this device come with WP8 and upgradable to WP8.1(which should be working fine) and currently you run windows 10 can you first do it in Android where 3 year old low end device upgrading to two major OS revision.
Dont spread the rumors. WP is definitely better in upgrade and It doesn't lag as other OS

Aren't people tired of the same "I have the... moreHopefully you will find all the apps. you want especially as the WP global market share is now under 1% and falling. I would like an alternative to Android but I don't see it as WP and it definitely isn't IoS. And I don't hate MS or Windows by the way. I have run almost every single build of Windows 10 from the last 12 to 18 months. I just don't see WP as a viable option any more.
This is great. Finally a proper non Android phone. Aren't people tired of the same "I have the biggest specs Android device" chant? It's gotten old guys, get over it, Android is a dead OS, and before you jump on me and droid troll me, will the smoothest best rendered OS stand up please (Android and iOS need not apply). Anyone who wishes for Android on this beast I liken to a person who pollutes. Putting Android on such a well balanced and designed/spec'd device I liken to throwing oil into a pure stream of water.
I make no apologies, for me who's into business use, it couldn't be more perfect. It's the age of the super phone, I don't look forward to any positive reviews from iOS/Apple or Google/Android fans when they finally get it and it's reviewed. This is what a smartphone is supposed to be. Oh and no people like myself don't give a flip about PokemonGo Or come, utter nonsense.
I believe this could revive life into one of the best mobile OS's on the planet. But of course there's and Android/iOS chorale who would only wish to tarnish this device. HP has listened to enterprise and given them what they asked for, all other consumers can go pick up the Galaxy Note 7/8/9 and the iPhone 7/8 whichever number suits you. This is a serious device and I can't wait to try it.
AnonD-568926, 05 Aug 2016Guys I think HP will not selling this product, this is only for their advertisement to talk ab... moreThey are already taking pre release orders on the phone.
Rumor has it HP wants to sell directly to companys, not through retail.
If Windows phone could run Android apps. natively I would have been on this in a second. Although not a totally fair comparison this is what the Note 7 should have been in many ways. If they did this with Android I would snap it up in a shot, as I suspect would many others.
Guys I think HP will not selling this product, this is only for their advertisement to talk about their name (Not to forget they precious brand) because they already mention that they will stay away now to smartphone business. This is part of their April Fool's Day, hahahahahaha. Even Microsoft its self already stop creating windows phone product but I think they will start the new episode next year the surface phone. If you can wait them next year, maybe you can hold Windows Phone again. Good Luck to Windows Phone users :-).
I want a W10 OS and better than Lumia so this is right on the money......but it needs to be a phone first and so this is way too big.......shame as this is a deal breaker for me. Note to HP shrink to 5.2" and I'm in!
5.96" is way to big..how i wish it was 5.0"-5.2"..for this reason..i can't buy a 5.96"
, 24 Jul 2016looks like it does not support indian 4g bands . dreams shattered :(Lets see if they launch in India.
Seems dock would have HP propriety charger & might be that ppl. need to carry extra charger. Can HP do this mistake?
only thing more I wanted is a dedicated expansion slot on dual sim instead of making choice between sim and sd card

This phone would have been great if Microsoft had
fixed horrible Web rendering issues and stability issues. Even Initial windows 10 phone still had Web rendring issues. Windows phone absolutely no lag in Web browsing and no lag in typing text.
So did Microsoft finally fixe Web rendering (half of websites don't display properly) and stability issues (many Web pages freeze) ?
