    Purchase HP Elite X3 on Amazon -
    Windows Mobile was an incredible platform for a number of years and competed well against the iPhone and Android flagship devices. Today we'll take a look at the last flagship smartphone from Windows Phone 10: the HP Elite X3. Not only that, but I'm going to use Windows Phone for a week.

    Windows, on both mobile and PC, has become so backwards over the years. Terribly bloated and messy software, like Windows, Outlook, Hotmail, Live, OneDrive and your contacts in there, apps and features on the other hand are incredibly confusing, troublesome and sparse.

    I had several Windows phones and they were awesome. The maps worked a dream and the whole OS was great. I hate windows on PC and have switched to Chrome OS and it is a lot better. Good memories of windows phone. I am now looking to swap to KaiOS and try that out as I get annoyed with battery life of the newer phones, they barely last a day.

    I bought Microsoft 532 back in 2015, had to trash it in 2016 mid courtesy lack of apps and unable to download apps down the road and already downloaded apps showing lags and showing signs of death. Frankly..........I still liked it. The tiles were cool (kinda romantic). Google killed it.

    Man, I don't know what your intent was. Was it poking fun at the Windows phone? From the get go you seemed to be just ready to trash the OS expecting everything to fail or just function "crappily".

    of course you can still use a Windows Phone, they may great coasters and stuff to throw at people who piss you off and paper weights .. they have lots and lots of uses

    We use Windows 4G 640 phones (Win 10) that _never_ falter, unlike our iPhones and Sony Androids. Many people don't suffer novelty-mania, so detest pointlessly ditching working tech. Calls, texts, email, camera, GPS all update, working as new. The worldwide eco-disaster of prematurely replacing _slightly_ older technologies is a plague on the planet. WhatsApp is soon to disappear on Windows phones, a blow for loyal users (especially in Asia, where the app is super-popular).

      @billy_ Have you ever had one? They did everything anyone needed and they were way cheaper than the competition, so I don't know how you could say that?
      Without windows and blackberry phones the public are now left with a choice of Expensive iPhones which the public are demanded to upgrade every two years or so or suffer Apple slowing the performance down to frustrate you (Remember that?), Or Android phones, which is a bit on the cheap and nasty side.
      Both options are a step backwards and people like yourself, and society at large can't see it.

      Like a lot of good stuff over the years past, it's not appreciated by the mindless masses so doesn't do as well in sales as the dumb, overpriced market leaders.
      How very typical of this world.

    I've been thinking of getting an x86 smartphone and putting win10 on it. I long for x86 and desktop application capabilities in a pocketable form factor. Even if I only use it as a "microtablet", itd be damn cool. And alot more durable than a laptop or tablet

    So last week I moved from iPhoneX to Pixel 3. Decided to use my Lumia950 for a day just to see how well I'd like it. As I've been using it for entertainment/weather/alarm clock via WiFi, it had all the Windows 10 updates running.
    I still loved the tile interface and the gestures, fonts and other elements still work beautifully.
    When I threw my SIM chip in, I was alerted to SIM updates - which I installed. I made and received phone calls which did great on the phone, wireless earbuds and automobile Bluetooth. The deal breaker was no matter what I did, I could not get my cellular data to kick in. So mail and everything else was restricted to WiFi.
    Had not been on Android for over a decade. When I got my Pixel the next day, I immediately purchased the premium version of Launcher 10 which provides a full Windows Phone experience on Android - including Live Tiles. I have everything set up - but have ended up just using the native Pixel launcher - which I think is gorgeous given it's minimalistic Design.
