This is an enterprise corporate smartphone. Don't expect to find it in your local t-mobile store. It wasn't conceived to play games or procrastinate with chat apps.
specs wise its awesome but the thing is can it compete with android app eco-system and its features like finger print scanner , VR and al that .
most of the apps are not available into windows store and if they are , its totaly old each.
Don't expect this to be cheap. In fact I bet on 800 eur +. It's extremely well built, Bang&Olufsen speakers and Windows Continuum support.
From the spec wise it is indeed a flagship killer..............i liked it but in the end please don't sell it too expensive like Galaxy S7 Edge or Iphone 6s Plus.
Place the price range between Huawei P9 Plus/Mi5/Zenfone 3 Deluxe........USD399-USD459.
hp elite x3 release date too late others have now overtaken it, especially with the new iPhone 7 release date just around the corner.
Dearest....One of the best HP,s smartDevices ever been built!Also the best Microsoft,s Windows made!!Undoubtedly the first HP,s and the second Microsoft,s smartphone that goes to the high ends!!!To embrace full popular success in sales,Hp must logically brings down the price in a level that all smartphones enthusiasts are able to have one!!Possible!!!?Yes!Why not!?Microsoft 950 XL LTE is in the high ends with the possible ultimate qualities in Windows 10 segment but price is....!!!?Anyway,HP elite X3 is the best quality Windows made but the best judge is the worldwide general public that usually have no access to high,higher,and the highest level!Why!?Just the highest price!!!We should remember that India is the first or second largest markets in the world with the best knowledgebase smart true logical commentators!!In the end,congregations to the HP too+Microsoft endeavors committed TO ITS OBLIGATIONS and words....!Thanks all.Justice Rights.Omid12omidvar.
it looks like the beast is coming. its a true flagship phone for windows 10 mobile. Hp must make more phones like it.
How much is this phone??? They should atleast put a cat 6 LTE. Aside from that nice specs HP
Device looks solid, spec -wise. Too big for my taste though. 5'' or 5,5'' would have been better IMHO.
..now if only we could install Android on it, it would be perfect :D
Dearest gsmArena followers and friends.The written specifications here implicitly shows that it must be a high end smartphone windows that for the first time I see HP considers to release such a high end one similar to Microsoft 950 XL LTE 4G!However GSM,s review will prove this HP,s efficiency and qualities!Hopefully,HP releases some data history for the public to know and have more knowledge about the HP,since as I heard HP usually works and produces tablets....Of course a good reasonable price for this high end quality phablet is the first door for HP,s future much more progresses in smartphone successful ascendings for sure!Nevertheless I congratulate HP for the first good start test with Microsoft Windows.Thanks+good luck all.Hopefully those whom use the phablet notify the public about everything they consider for the others important about it in design,features and performance....Thanks again.Justice Rights.Omid12omidvar.
I feel like knocking off a few liquor stores so I can get this phone next month.
Once again, it looks like Verizon customers will get screwed over on a flagship phone. No 700MHz Band 13, which is Verizon's main LTE band. Sounds like the Lumia 950XL all over again. :(
Elite phone. .. Pure premium phone ... But the biggest prob!!! The company has plans for corporate sell only ... Da specs indicate DA same .. Hope it gets public ... This is truely an awesome phone with win 10..
AnonD-540417, 23 May 2016If I opt for a non-Lumia and/or non-Surface phone, this is likely to be my choice, but it has ... moreNo unlike before this time the updates will be supported, earlier in Windows Phone 8.1 Microsoft gave the OS customization option to manufacturers, due to this reason Lumia had its own exclusive apps and HTC 8X and M8 WP had many of their exclusive apps but with Windows 10 Mobile they've changed things. Now nothing is manufacturer exclusive, even Lumia Camera has been replaced with universal Microsoft Camera. By maintaining standardized OS elements across all devices Windows 10 Mobile ensures equal upgrades for all devices.
If I opt for a non-Lumia and/or non-Surface phone, this is likely to be my choice, but it has to be asked whether two years from now will this device be supported by Microsoft or will they do like they just did with HTC One M8 for Windows device owners despite having flagship specs being deliberately denied the gold release of Windows 10 Mobile and also despite being able to run the Windows Insider builds as of this typing up to 10.0.318 thus far? Anybody care to take a crack at this? Also as of this typing Microsoft is now selling the Lumia 950XL with a buy one and get the Lumia 950 free. Sales have been dismal thus far. And now Microsoft it's feature phone business to FIH Mobile and Nokia name is poised to make a comeback despite Nokia itself not building the phones.
