I just want to chip in on this whole "elite is a business /enterprise marketed phone"
So while I appreciate HP did not design this phone with the general public in mind, the majority of mobiles in use in business I dare say are consumer-grade phones and are seemingly, not an issue in enterprise environments.
This phone is by no means "feature packed" with enterprise related features other than what MS are making as part of the OS and applies to all of their phones. Biometrics on phones are consumer-grade level in my opinion, as they are prevalent in consumer-marketed phones, simply having such features available doesn't make it any more enterprise than the many consumer phones available - it's not filling in any "enterprise" gap.
HP's only enterprise targeted features are pogo? pins and HP workspace, yet remote desktop isn't new and the pins are likely to be equally dominated by some universal USB C alternative.
An always on screen for notifications is more of an enterprise-grade feature, even though phones in general are a consumer targeted since the general public is the biggest audience for phones. I dont see why someone in any professional industry would want to switch on their screen every time to see notifications when sitting at their desk or wherever.
I also dont see the issue of it when the folio case automatically turns the screen on when flipped. The fact that these same notifications that may be of concern pop up on my linked windows 10, just makes it all sound very silly. If it's an issue, surely a business would disable it.
It's a poor and not a legitimate excuse. HP using this "enterprise" tag is general nonsense anyway. Two phones, one packed with consumer features, has a finger print sensor and an always on screen, the other is similar spec, but lacks any consumer features... which one will the employee want? Not mentioning the latter is also the most expensive.
I mean it's entirely contradictory to have dual sims, for "work and personal" then say, oh but we dont want to target the "personal" side of the phone.
Mobiles by nature are generally consumer-targeted because its "people" are using it at the end of the day. Dual sim is popular because people don't want two phones, one for work and one for personal use, they want one phone with familiarity, comfort, ease across both uses.
If HP are going to keep standing behind the whole 'elite as an enterprise grade phone' purely to market it to corporate clients and as a means of ignoring all consumer-grade features, they will soon dig their own grave with this investment.
