    Viktor, it seems you're not using your iPhone to its full potential. Yes, it's true that iOS does not have a file manager and that's its biggest failing for business users like yourself. A simple solution for your email needs is to download Outlook from the App Store and that will solve 2 of your issues. First, Outlook will allow attachments other than photos and you can attach multiple files of varying types (photos, PDFs, Word docs, etc.). Second, you need to set your email to push rather than scheduled. Not only will you get your emails quicker but it will improve your battery life by not having your email client polling the server every 15 minutes. Another tip is to use CamScanner to send your docs as a PDF rather than a photo. You can send the doc straight from the app and save a few steps. As a loyal Windows fan I'd rather you enjoy your iPhone than to get the HP and have the same issues you're having now and then bad-mouth the platform. Give it a whirl and then decide if switching platforms will fit your needs better.
    Thank You!
    So You think I have to optimise my iPhone and will solve all my problems.
    What else can You offer me? What Apps?

    That sounds great. When will be the next updates?
    Redstone 2 will be in early 2017 or thereabouts, RS3 will be late 2017.
    also -- Regarding your hundreds of emails a day and responding to them, have you tried using voice recognition instead of typing, I must admit on this platform it works very well. I use it for SMS and Email.

    For insiders, not sure, there's going to likely be a new one this week but if it will include those features is anyone's guess. I believe the creators update is going to be for february 2017. Though insider program is where you can join to be a part of a testing group that lets you use bleeding edge versions of windows before they make it to the public. There's a lot of feedback involved as well as your phone collects telemetry at a higher level for them to be able to improve upon the software.

    I have downloaded Outlook on my iPhone. Mails really come very quickly. But the problem is, that I don't know how to download files.

    Of course. They can be rooted and have an unlocked / unlockable bootloader. They are a mess, when rooted, like a jailbroken iphone, which is also untouchable.

    So, no game for me.

    Or, I see. And what about Dtek60?
    And why many businessmen use the Android devices - Dtek, Samsung, Vertu?

    The Pixel is not. As for Outlook, you should be able to tap the 3rd tab at the bottom to see all of your attachments. I know you have mail, calendar, and I forgot what the third tab is. My iPhone isn't in front of me right now.

    As the Pixel is rootable and has an unlockable bootloader plus is running Android - sorry, it can not be secure by definition. It is not a trusted platform and can run anything. And on top of that come the usual Android bugs (which iOS or Windows are having as well, but are not as targeted).

    An iOS or Windows 10 Mobile device is neither easily rootable (jailbreak / interop unlock) nor does it have an open bootloader. Here, only the bugs come into play ;) The DTEKs are embedding unique crypto keys in every device in a certain way, which is said to be secure. This article from Blackberry contains more information on how it is secure despite (yes, despite) using Android: BlackBerry?s New DTEK50 and PRIV Are the Most Secure Android Devices on the Market: Here?s Why [VIDEO, PICS] | Inside BlackBerry

    To come back to your question, Viktor, it is beyond me, how 85% of the market can be Android, and it is even worse, as the absolute majority of those again are cheapdroids, which never ever saw an update and are indeed running known, insecure and open to grab for anybody Android versions. These devices are containing the whole digital identity plus are always with us (with their GPS, cameras, microphones) and are known insecure.

    People just do not care. I do and you asked ;)

    I agree. Even the fact that companies deploy MDM for android devices makes no sense. Because as even the latest MDM service can be bypassed/spoofed by the rooted android device if they really want to or an individual is clever enough. My company strictly only supports Windows Mobile and iOS and has not even considered opening byod to Android.

    With WM there is no need to interop unlock anymore. Developer mode is baked in and deploying a registry editor is all you really need to effect usable changes. There are no custom ROMs available and even if there were, they'd be pretty useless since the UI is locked down tighter than Ft. Leavenworth.

    I won't touch the rootable-ness right now but having an unlockable bootloader is not a liability. Unlocking the bootloader wipes the phones data and it simply allows more freedom for the user to use their phone. (unlike any other phone which is pretty much stuck when their respective company says so)

    Android gets a lot of flak but a Pixel/Nexus or Blackberry is your best bet if you want a different balance of security and utility. It is secure, it may not be as secure but it is not insecure.

    The Android ecosystem is a security trainwreck when you look at the numerous cheap devices without updates or even patches. However security patches are released monthly and Samsung, Blackberry and Google do well with them.
    But avoid carrier-branded models, they can and do interfere with updates like how AT&T delayed the WP8.0 GDR2/Lumia Amber update for several months.

    Look to see if Android does something the others don't do and then go from there. As always, common sense is the best defense and simple steps can keep you reasonably safe.

    With the x3 on sale for $599 it's gonna make it a little harder to pick the DTEK. I'm a BlackBerry fan, but for OS10, so I may be biased towards the HP. No, I don't blame HP for the Apothekalypse any more than I blame GM for Rick Wagoner.

    Dear Friends! I am still interested in buying this device. Were there many updates during the last 2 months?
    And maybe somebody knows how to open full ms office and other apps for a home use? Is it possible without corporate license?

    Now I am using iPhone 7 plus and Windows notebook. And at work I am using windows PC. I do on them:
    1) e-mails (I am working in the sphere of science and also do a lot of admin, that is why I have hundreds emails everyday and I have to respond on them very quickly). I use Spark on iPhone and Outlook on my PC and laptop, sometimes Web interface on PC and laptop
    2) MS office full version, acrobat D.C. full version (PC and Laptop), scan docs (iPhone)
    3) Calls
    4) SMS, MMS (sometimes I do mailing via SMS to 250 people at one time)
    5) Viber, WhatsApp, FaceBook
    6) Bank apps (but I can do bank operations in web also)
    7) Safari on iPhone and Chrome and Opera on Laptop and PC (searching in internet)

    Will I do the same on one device - HP E X3?

    Dear friends!
    Thank You very much for all these comments.
    Dear Corwin_Amber! What do You like in Your Win10Mob device? Do You have HP Elite x3?
    Cons about my IPhone 7 Plus: The main problem about iOS, that it doesn't have good file manager, I always need to send mails with a lot of attachments and it is not possible with iOS. Everyday I receive hundreds of emails and I have to respond on them quickly. But on iPhone it is impossible, because the mail app updates automatically only every 15 min.
    .
    Download the outlook app and use OneDrive for your files. You are able to send any file you want via OneDrive through outlook.

    Honestly, I am a huge Windows enthusiast, and if anything, I would trade your MacBook in for a surface pro 4 or surface book. The iPhone 7 plus is the best phone on the market, the experience with the hp x3 or ant continuum phone isn't going to be great. Hp workplace also cost a lot of money and offers limited bandwidth.

    From the time I first used Continuum with a 950 last year until now, Continuum has made a few improvements in the user experience. I'll say this though, the HDMI wired option with a USB wireless kb and mouse is the way to go. It really makes a difference over a wireless adapter and Bluetooth kb and mouse. Using your phone as a trackpad still translates into a bit of lag courtesy of latency, which makes no sense unless the software isn't up to snuff to be used that way.

    Agreed. While in the future it might be great, W10M (and the x3) isn't reliable enough -yet. Honestly I love Windows as a platform and I use it everywhere but I sometimes still have those moments where I cannot even *see* the content of a email on my x3... I literally have to use the web browser to navigate to outlook.com to see what people send me. Thats mildly annoying as a consumer but nerve-wreaking if you need to read and reply to tons of emails like you.

    Also, iPhone is not a bad choice but Android is just as good. Like xandros9 says, go for a known Android brand like the Pixel or a Samsung. All this fear mongering is a bit over the top.

    Eventually I'm hoping for full Windows 10 on ARM 'phones'.

    Things move a lot slower with Microsoft in mobile and we probably aren't going to see anything big software-wise for at least a few months.

    By October we should see big improvement from Microsoft on their system (Redstone 3). But as for now, there is an update that should be released by April from Microsoft but don't aspect many features on this update.
