    X3 is dated hardware that is plasticky and ugly with poor battery life.

    If you have to get Windows Phone, get 640XL. It is a beautiful workhorse that blew away my overheating crappy 950XL and crummy X3.

    Or just get an iPhone and never be frustrated again...

    I would agree about the 640 XL...one of the best phones I've ever had...never had an issue with mine.

    The Elite X3 has outdated hardware! Get the two year old 640 XL, running an outdated operating system, instead.

    The Elite X3 is plasticky! Get the also plastic 640 XL instead.

    The Elite X3, with its 4150 mAh battery, has poor battery life! Get this 640 XL with its 3,000 mAh battery instead. I mean, seriously, dude. The Elite X3's battery life is phenomenal.

    Yeah, iPhone users are never frustrated. Come on, man...

    Yeah, the 640XL is rock solid and blows away the X3. These other guys are just pissed they wasted so much $ on an inferior device

    I think the 640 XL is a great phone. It's a solid mid-range device.

    However, there is not a single metric in which the 640 XL out does the Elite x3. Nonsense.

    I've never owned an 640XL, but I do have an x3. I have a hard time buying this argument. But to each his or her own I suppose.

    Don't see how a 640 class phone measures up to the X3. There is just no comparison.

    If you still want a Windows phone in 2017, get it. The x3 is the best windows phone currently out there.

    The app store sucks, there are no more new features OS wise, just bug fixes for probably the next year. But if your a current widows phone user, this is not news to you. We all know this.

    I bought a one plus 5 today, took it home, did the whole set up and downloaded apps. Marveled at the speed of it (it's amazing), drooled at the app selection (millions!), then took it back for a refund. I just like Windows better. I'll hang on for a bit more, cause i just love the OS.

    I don't know why you guys are giving him such a hard time. He's absolutely right, the 640XL is a much better device than the X3 - the Dell Axim X3 from 2004.

    Yeah...that's how I feel too. I LUV the OS. But I went ahead and sold my X3 as I needed the cash. I'm probably not done though with WP. I'll probably pick up a something for low cost just to play with as a second device.

    I just got an X3. I like it. I just wish there was an easy way to disable the camera shutter or video sounds. I don't really want to use Interop Tools on a phone that is not even a week old. I went to this from a 950XL, with a 640XL before that. All have been good phones for me.

    pfft same thing with my LG G6, great phone and it matches the 950XL hardware wise and all the bells and whistles like DTTW, wireless charging, glance, ect ect... but I couldn't take all the adverts that your forced to watch and the apps that want access to EVERYTHING and you have ZERO privacy let alone the viruses you have to worry about... seriously I can't fathom why spydroid is so popular! it amazes me what people are willing to lose to have a couple of crappy apps!! boggles my mind! I am so happy with my X3 and how amazing the screen looks that all the other phones look pale in comparison! and the peace of mind I have with WM10 and I find typing is so much more better and fluid than spydroid... keeping my X3 for as long as possible...in fact I luv it so much I might buy another one for backup! found a super good deal on one and just biting my nails to figure if I wanna buy/need it LOL

    Using made up adjectives to discredit other OS’s always makes me laugh. So thanks for the laugh.

    Glad the X3 works for you. That’s all that really matters.

    bwahahaha made up... your even funnier! those are facts! amazing some people are in denial of "facts" here let me educate you buddy, and just one of MANY examples, I installed slacker and Spotify and fired them up to show my GF how to stream and I kid you not BAM! forced to watch 3 bloody commercials before the streaming even began, 1 was a degree deodorant commercial and the other 2 I forget cuzz I just tuned out and didn't wanna see them! and then opened up the other music stream and had to deal with other ads in that one too! and then I installed messenger for facebook and right after installing the app her phone started exhibiting strange problems and I narrowed it down to the app was a fake version and it had a key logger and whatever else it was supposed to do... so I had to un-install it and then install a virus scanner and get rid of it... oh and BTW another reason how I know it was the app because it changed all her icons and had a fake icon of the said app I installed... so NO nothing made up but nice try! you wanna keep your head in the sand and deny facts and be oblivious to the facts then go ahead..

    Awww, more made up adjectives! Awesome!

    The first is called targeted advertising. Everyone knows this exists on Android (the most) as well as Microsoft. Not rocket science.

    The second was you installed the wrong app. User error (fact).

    Third, I don’t use Android nor to I have any sand in my house. I may go the beach this summer though and build a sand castle. Is that good enough?

    Enjoyed the fun conversation. Enjoy your day!

    OMG!! I luv how you can't take the truth and resort to practically accusing me of making stuff up.. your so sad ahahahaha, seriously grow up dude LOL not gonna play your childish games... and BTW NO! wm10 does not have targeted ads like Android does, not even close... I'm not saying there is NO ADS in WM10 but nothing like Android, Android is just an advertising sl*t for companies and stores and whoever else... and I call BS on not owning any Android devices because you wouldn't be this clueless and defensive... wait... maybe you don't own any cuzz you would see what I'm saying is true! third, its irrelevant if I installed the wrong app or didn't, the fact that you have to watch what needs to be installed should be indicative of how badly viruses are on Android... and BTW probably 90% of viruses are installed on Android as that's how they fool the end user into installing viruses... through legitimate looking apps DUH!
