    texting is way better, corrections, phrase choices, goin to phone is not good. The option of 3 different size tiles is good. The scroll up and down on windows is natural vs side to side on android. The whole look feels more easier to navigate. I haven't used it in 10 months but I got it out to see the differences. There is nothing that I see that really grabs me on Android that I like better. It is now getting laggy and freezing up, battery life totally sucks. I will miss the camera. Windows had all the apps I needed, and I feel I was able to make better use of them. I never put the effort to hunt thru the Google store and find the perfect app. I can't wait to get the phone and jus sync everything I had and move forward. I hope that helps. My wife has an apple and I jus wanna crush it every time I have to use it. I honestly can not figure out what the attraction is to apple, I think it is too much work

    Official launch is November 1st. Pricing stays at $599. I work for Verizon Business Team. It will not be available through Verizon channels. Only through HP/Microsoft. I personally can't wait!!
    Hey thanks for the update @FreddyDavenport that's great news! Now I just need to find $599... ;D

    That is why I like Window 10 Mobile and Windows Phones in general. I can buy a 4 yr old phone at almost nothing and it runs the latest software with updates. On top of that they are quite configurable via the Registry access we have to them and other tools that can help you make it a better device for you. If iOS was like this I would move to them if W10M and the X3 do not work out. But the only path left would be Android.

    Edit: Example--When I get an X3 I enable the LED notifications, disable the Camera shutter sound, and enable living images. They are simple missing features that the phone is capable of and make it that much more enjoyable.

    I plan to build a tutorial/guide on how to enable the LED notifications soon so that others who want can use it.
    Please let me know when you do. I saw you me took this in one of the other forums. I tried following you advice but failed. The x3 shutter sounds kill me - so annoying. I would really like to see how its done. Thanks.

    @Brady Nielsen, I will.
    Being able to edit the locked down parts of the registry is key for making those work. I will post it in the guides section for Windows 10 Mobile when I write it up.

    I received a Verizon Elite x3 and now using it on Verizon. I ordered it from HP sales. I received it yesterday and all seems to be working very well. I ordered 2 phones and 1 of them would not boot up properly so I am sending it back to HP to reorder.

    I have the X3 unlocked at&t. Screen cracked and I want to replace it. Seems expensive to buy the panel and complicated to do DIY

    Yes
    How much are they charging for it?
    Does it come bundled with the Desk Dock?

    HYPE. Emailed the HP sales person to inquire about details. (I ended up losing notifications on this thread, whoops.) Should be on the Microsoft Store in two days at this point anyways.

    HP dude says it's on backorder right now. Sounds like Allen got lucky. Price is $679+tax and dock is $130+tax. Given the rumor that in two days we can order from Microsoft for potentially $599, it makes sense to wait.

    Wow...BlackBerry KEYone BBB100-3 for Verizon is $550. I will be looking to get that instead of the X3 to replace my orange Lumia Icon once I get some extra cash. Sad times for Windows "Mobile".

    If it wasn't for the malicious OS it ships with, a BlackBerry would be pretty compelling. X3 should be available tomorrow, Iunno why you're coming to an X3 thread just to tell us you aren't buying one.

    I agree. I don't know why anyone would risk using Android/Google spyware.

    The majority of us here at WC are fans of all tech and have owned devices from all types of OSes. This thread is part of a larger forum where we come to shoot the sh*t and compare notes on what's going on elsewhere. We're all family here and don't have cliques or secret handshakes.
