HP Elite X3


HP is a name more associated with laptops than smartphones, but with the Elite X3 the brand is hoping to bring a little of its business nous to one of the most crowded and, arguably, tough to succeed in fields in tech.

Can the transforming HP Elite X3 smartphone replace your desktop and laptop PCs?


We've seen devices of this ilk before, not least in the form of the Motorola Atrix 4G released a staggering five years ago, but HP believes it has overcome the barriers that have previously prevented all-in-one smartphone solutions from replacing all...

HP Elite x3 review


A beautiful, capable phone limited by its OS

Massive battery ; Stunning design ; Can transform into a PC

Lousy app support ; Unwieldy size for some

HP’s Elite x3 is a well-built device and a solid performer all-around. Unfortunately, Windows 10 Mobile fails to back it with enough app support to make it suited for business users and consumers alike.

HP Elite x3 review


Windows phones have had a hard ride. They aren't bad, it's just that Android and iOS is better. The high-end, high-spec HP Elite x3 is aimed squarely at business users but there are reasons to buy as an individual too. Here is our HP Elite x3 review..

The HP Elite x3 is an excellent smartphone, melding high-end specs with a solid design and good user experience. The Windows app store is still underrated, and the battery lasts for ages. However at £699 without the lapdock, this is not a cheap device.

HP did a great job with the Elite x3 hardware to try winning over the BYOD crowd. However, the trade-offs and costs going with Microsoft Continuum are not to ignore.

HP's Elite X3 gets closer to the dream of a Windows Phone as a PC


It offers improvements to Windows 10's Continuum, but it has plenty of problems too.

HP Elite x3 review: Yep, this was the last great Windows phone


HP's Elite x3 combines amazing hardware, tremendous battery life, a stellar Continuum experience, and support for older Win32 apps. Whether that's enough to buoy Microsoft's vision remains to be seen.

Workspace virtualized apps are something special ; Desk Dock provides an excellent Continuum experience ; Two (not one!) ways to log in via Windows Hello

Extremely high price out of reach for most consumers ; Workspace interface could use some ease-of-use refinement ; Mediocre camera

Workspace makes your phone your PC—for real. Say what you will about Continuum, or how well HP has implemented it; you’re still at Microsoft’s mercy. And because Continuum only supports Microsoft’s relatively new UWP apps, there’s a vast body of apps...
