One of the latest members to join the Windows 10 Mobile family of phones, is the HP Elite x3. Its large, built for business and wants you to work with it.
These days when it comes to working on the go, the divide between laptops and smartphones are getting smaller as phones are just as competent workhorses as their larger counterparts. The HP Elite x3 is one such device, when combined with its accessory ecosystem only seems to become even greater.
In terms of specs, you’re looking at a rather large 5.96 inch mobile device, with a Snapdragon 820 at it’s core mated to 4GB RAM. It also sports a 16 MP rear and 8 MP front camera combo as well as a finger print, iris scanner for the paranoid and USB Type-C.
The display is a QHD AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. In terms of storage you’re getting a generous 64GB that’s extendable via microSD. As an added bonus, the phone uses a hybrid SIM slot, so it can support a dual-SIM setup if you need it.
While the Elite x3 isn’t much to look at, its accessories really make it shine. The Desk Dock allows you to connect an external monitor via DisplayPort, the HP Mobile Extender allows the phone to transform into a 12.5-inch HD laptop powered by Windows just by slotting it in. You can even use a mouse and keyboard while its connected to either Desk Dock or Mobile Extender laptop shell.
