Anyways going back to Elite X3, even though it’s quite outdated now, it’s still worth looking into.
The HP Elite X3 Android Version is a 3-in-1 device billed and aims to make the best of a laptop, desktop, and mobile phone. And, for a phone that is supposed to be free from the limits of each product category to be imposed, as well as non-Windows 10 mobile devices. It is all very easy to feel trapped within the HP Elite X3 Android Version.

Its polished, metal, plastic details and 2K AMOLED display will turn heads, and their quality leaves little to be desired.
As a stand-alone handset, the HP Elite x3 Android Version extends the definition of a Phablet with its pocket-bulging, 5.96-inch screen.
The display is one of the largest we’ve had, which is greater than that of the 5.5-inch screen found on the Google Pixel XL and iPhone 7 Plus.
In comparison to the 5.7-inch LG V20, the Elite x3 rock both a larger display and battery with only a tenth of a millimeter in the depth and a little more in the height and width added.
And that is quite impressive.
The Elite X3 offers military hard with the MIL-STD 810G-certification. It is also IP 67, just like the iPhone 7, which protects it from occasional splash, but not against immersion in water. Needless to say, this phone can take a beating. Back to the size of this phone, you probably know now how big it is.
The Elite X3 is almost impossible for most to hold with one hand but if it suits your lifestyle, the size shouldn’t be an issue.
Some people just like carrying bigger phones and that’s not really a problem here!

When you touch a little more on the bottom of the phone, it is made with plastic, polished like metal and has a unique visual pattern that is a little unexpected, but very warm for this business-oriented device. The added element of design helps to enliven this otherwise suit-and-tie – search device.
You will love this little gloss accents in the vicinity of the HP Elite X3 Android Version, including around the rear for front camera and fingerprint sensor. Otherwise, it is a glass and polycarbonate affair. At its size, and a case it might seem bizarre, but this stellar build quality value is protected.
Fortunately, the best Windows 10 mobile device by a long-shot does not slouch on the capacity of the battery. HP has the good use of space in its 5.96-inch elite x 3 by packing in a whopping 4,150 mAh battery like the rugged phones have. If you are using this phone are especially for its continuum skill, battery life is not of concern since they are connected to the power supply.
But it is definitely a concern for the elite x3 on the go. During my time with the ELITE x3, it was no problem permanently over a day in continuous operation.
Even under normal to heavy use, it was rather difficult draining the large battery in 24 hours or less. And yes, it does last quite well for a few days in standby mode.
On the Dock, it takes just about two minutes to switch on the appliance.
From there it reaches 16% just after 15 minutes of charging. According to HP, you can have more than two hours on your phone for almost an hour and a half of surfing the Internet at this level.
At the one hour mark, 70% of this massive battery is refilled and 40 minutes from then, it’s as charged as it’ll ever get.

HP office-friendly smartphone comes with both a front-facing and rear-facing camera setup for your photography and video conferencing. The concentration on the 16 MP rear sensors is high and it has an aperture of f/2.2, this gives it the ability to shoot in low light relatively well.
It is not the best performing camera you’ll ever see but, in a pinch, it works well enough.
The Elite X3 the lens is also in the position, large pixel size up to 1.31 µm.
Compared to the Nexus and Nexus 5 X 6 P 1.55 µm pixel size, this is still running a bit small. All said, larger pixels are good because they make less noise.
Finally, the camera can also be used in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second.
The front-facing camera, HP has a robust 8MP Sensor here, which also has an aperture of f/2.2 installed.
In addition, size pixels at 1.12 and recording in 1080p at 30 frames per second shooting.
The quality is very suitable for video conferences and the selfie, but there is nothing too special here.
That’s it for this HP Elite X3 Android Version design review.
All in all, it’s a good phone.
Especially with the Windows 10 but it’s not as unique or special as you may think.
However, if you’re looking for a PC replacement, HP Elite X3 may be worth a consideration.
