    Is it worth the money that you have spent on it?

    Right now, no. The Elite x3 works only with its specific Desk Dock, and doesn't come with a USB-C to USB-C cable.
    How about the reverse, can the Lumia 950 XL use the Desk Dock via Continuum?

    Hypothetically, If MS offered a refreshed 950xl with a SD820 and no other changes would you give it the nod over the Elite X3.

    Battery life is the best I've seen on a Windows phone to date. Can easily get through a day with heavy use, more if using lightly.
    Better than the 1520? because that was the best windows phone for battery life.

    What Tech is used for the stylus? Is it simply a narrow tipped run of the mill capacitive stylus or is there some digitiser Tech involved on the phone side? No one seems to be forthcoming about this.

    Hey all,

    I'm in possession of an HP Elite x3 running the Anniversary Update + newer firmware that enables some of the cool features you can check out in this post. I've seen lots of you asking questions about this device over the last few days, so I thought it would be a good idea to throw up an AMA for those who want some answers!

    I hope the accessories are available soon after the device itself, which hasn't always been the case when you are the margins of the market. As for screen rendering of websites, emails, etc., how does pinch and zoom and word-wrapping work? Does it reconfigure on the fly so that you don't have to scroll to read as the font size changes?

    Thanks for doing this, Zach.

    One question I have is just generally: Stylus? I've seen a lot of pics with one. I guess the first question is, is it still going to be a thing? If yes, then have you used it yet? If yes, then how is it?

    Thanks!
    Should still be a thing, the Desk Dock bundle didn't come with one though. It's a capacitive pen, not active too, so no palm-rejection or anything like that.

    It's capacitive, since W10M doesn't have support for anything else yet.

    Not sure. I really like the design and build of the HP Elite x3. I think I only would because of the 1st party support, but as I said I'm really enjoying the x3's design.

    Perhaps, but it doesn't fit. Haven't tried it with any cables or anything so not sure. Also I've been told that apparently the MS Dock does work with the Elite x3, it didn't for me.. Maybe an issue on my end.

    What about the glance screen feature, would it be included in with a future update for the HP elite x3 or does the device totally doesn't support glance screen?
    Glance is a Microsoft device only feature. It's exclusive to Microsoft, not other OEMs. Not many people seem to understand this, they assume Glance is a "Windows 10 Mobile" feature, it is not. It's a Lumia feature.

    HP may one day make their own version of Glance, but that's unlikely. It's difficult, and it took Nokia/Microsoft a while to perfect it (that's why it isn't included on the 930).

    Hi Zac
    Does the camera shoot slow motion videos? And does it record sound doing so?.
    Thanks
    No slow motion here. 30fps camera so would be pretty bad.

    Might give it a little more metal here and there. Don't get me wrong, the all plastic shell doesn't feel bad at all... But I'm a sucker for metal phones.

    Really? It's still MS only feature? I thought after they brought it into system settings with RS1 it would be available to OEMs too (or at least in the near future).

    Interesting. While I wait for my 950xl to come back from warranty repair, I'm using my HTC One M8, which is metal. I really dislike the metal feel and quickly found a soft case to put on it.

    But at least it isn't going to be glass like the horrid Note 7. My son got one and I really dislike that device. Fast? Yes. Friendly and usable? No. The only thing I like is that one can use the Hub Keyboard.

    Zac, forgetting about apps for a minute, how does this stack up against flagships on other platforms? I'm talking about build quality, call quality, photos, etc. We already know it doesn't poke any mons or snap any chats, so as far as the device goes, is it worth 8 Benjamins?

    Any random freezing...reboots..or other things like that which have plagued the 950/050xl. Curious if those issues were hardware of software related.

    I tried the 950xl dock on the hp and it works fine.

    I also tried the 950xl on the HP dock, it only fits if you remove the cover off the dock (you can replaced it with one of the other larger ones in the box) and it works fine too.

    Yes, plenty out of the box. I would actually say it was worse than when the 950xl launched. After the anniversary update however, it is smooth as a babies arse.
