The only problem with this phone, is that it runs on MS os. People would have paid that kind of money 4 android, but this is dead before lunch, like the os it runs.
Camera 16 MP is rut having f/2.2 worse focal length, should be under 2, as all Sammy, HTC, etc. Why this suicide. News of Surface with 830 is also died its natural death.
Why the camera is not good? they should fix this because when i search for elite x3 in hp websites it said there that the phone have optical image stabilisation and sensors...or at least they should make it clear about this issue

so Microsoft decided to go for a more modern CPU.
The Anniversary Update requires 700MB RAM ~3/4 GB.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2016You are right, that is exactly my point as well. No dedicated memory card slot for the dual-SI... moreEr, why 64GB is not enough for you, why an SD?
In the rare cases where USB-OTG, connection to PC, cloud, and that 64 GB is not enough,
one could temporarily remove one SIM to access the SD card, right?
Beautiful phone. Specs are great. The lack of apps has never been an issue. Had the 950 and was very buggy. With Basic functions the phone would freeze up and would have to restart. If if turned on Bluetooth and urged back on it would require a power down. Been a loyal user since the HTC trophy, but wp10 is making think about going to android. Btw I sold the 950 and am using a 930 running 10 with the same issues.
I'm tired of waiting for a 1020 successor or a smartphone running x86 Windows 10. Will be getting this soon.

Can older Apple iPhones be 'Upgraded' to the latest iOS10? NO SIR!
A Select number of Windows Phones ARE upgradable! And not just Lumias, I have personally upgraded my BLU Win HD LTE from Windows 8.1 to 10 and it runs just fine!!
Microsoft did promise to bring Windows 10 to EVERY earlier Windows Phone, but the they probably gave it up because of the difficulties in porting it to so many different models!
I think they did a FINE JOB, successfully porting it to a number of earlier Phones, Lumias and non-Lumias!!

can i run windows server on this phone? Pls help me. Urgent.
Tq in advance.No, you CANNOT run Windows Server on ANY Smartphone!
All Windows 10 Smartphones run the OS Windows 10 Mobile, which id quite different from the Windows 10 you have on Desktops, Laptops and Tablets - even though they look oh-sooo-similar... Trust this answers you question fully
Windows 10 Mobile is being improved! The Redstone 2 is one reason for the delay in the Surface Phone, the other being the availability of the Kaby Lake processor...
I for one am willing to wait some more for the Surface Phone: it is being built to run Win32 Apps (without the need for Antivirus, which would definitely slow down Phone operations). Having switched to Windows with the Lumia 920 itself, I simply cannot go back to Android now - love the Win 8/ 10 interface and ease of use just too much! :)
AnonD-598214, 15 Oct 2016Agree. The OS choice is questionable, considering how Microsoft messed up the very good concep... moreThis phone is good but I'm not fond of the new direction Microsoft wants to take with Windows 10 Mobile. OS licensing may be good in case of PCs but in case of phones it leads to quality control issues.
The Elite X3 turned out to be good but same isn't true for other Windows 10 Mobile devices. Lenovo 503LV has severe overheating issues, Acer Jade Primo has bad over saturated camera and BLU Win HD LTE and Funker W6 has terrible build quality, pathetic cameras and inferior quality displays.
It's hard to move on from Carl Zeiss equipped good quality Lumia phones to such devices.
The worst part about their new strategy is that they would no more produce phones of their own. All the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile devices would be produced by third party manufacturers. Although updates won't be an issue as for Windows 10 Mobile phones they would be directly maintained by Microsoft but quality of devices would be a big issue.
It would have been better if they had done something like what Google does in case of Nexus devices.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016Hp elite x3 dual sim version must have dedicated memory card slot instead of using sim-2 slot,... moreYou are right, that is exactly my point as well. No dedicated memory card slot for the dual-SIM version is the only reason stopping me from buying this otherwise great phone.
I guess I will have to settle for the 950XL-Dual, and use VMware instead of HP's Workforce in order to use my desktop applications on the server. Bummer, because that's not a very affordable solution all-in-all.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2016Such an impressive phone. Such a disappointing OS choice.Agree. The OS choice is questionable, considering how Microsoft messed up the very good concept of the Lumia line. Important is the software that runs the thing and I am not impressed with Win10. Love my Lumia 1520 though...
