I got the phone last Friday. And I got the Folio yesterday. Very nice. When you close the lid, it turns off the screen. So far, so good. Very powerful phone. I have a little over the weeks to test it out. Trying to figure out how to use wallet. Not sure if I need a secure Nano SIM.

Got mine yesterday in the UK and my silicone case is arriving today......hopefully. The packaging is absolutely fantastic and yet, total overkill for a mobile phone and dock!!
I have set it up fresh and didn't use any back ups from my 950xl. I decided to wait to see if the AU arrives today as expected, if not I will join the Insider program again and update it that way. It is definitely in need of an update, too many crashes (camera) and lock up's at the moment. The hardware is awesome though and I'm sure it will greatly improve in the fututre

I got mine on Saturday. Very happy with the phone. Hoping updates/firmware will help the camera, Waiting for a folio case. Some apps gave me problems when installing onto sd card so reinstalled on phone. For those that want to install AU, you might want to wait for the public release. Seems there is a problem with firmware doing install. (See thread "HP Elite X3 bricked") Took me a few hours to get the AU installed and my phone "unbricked." Ah, the journey through the lowlands!

Thanks for the heads up in AU. Hopefully we won't have to wait to long for the official update, a few more hours maybe.
I'll probably still go down the Insider route if the official one doesn't land today. WDRT supports the X3 now if I'm not mistaken so I'll be able to recover that way if the worst happens

I just downloaded WDRT and you are right about the X3 support. I wish I knew that yesterday! FYI The AU doesn't fix the camera so I guess that needs firmware. Still loving the phone.

So the silicone case arrived today and the packaging of that was again totally overkill. After a whole days usage I am really enjoying this phone, just need the AU update to arrive soon (today) and I'll be a happy chap. Next on the agenda is to source a decent screen protector, not an anti glare or tempered glass though

I would be more interested in hearing what businesses picked these up for their employees, as this phone was meant for enterprise.

I would recommend waiting a little while before going the insider route with the X3.

You would be hard pressed to find small to medium business owners purchasing these for their staff. If anything only the top tier managers will get access to the device. After all it's not cheap....

I would like buy it for the bigger display than the 950XL I have now but HP is making that so hard... in Italy it's about 829 euro.

Thanks for the advice. Can I ask why? if the WDRT did not support the X3 and there was no way of recovery should something go awry I definitely would not consider it, as it is I am debating whether to go ahead today or not

Should you decide to go ahead, let us know how it goes .)

Still considering and the more I consider it the more I am inclined to wait as you suggested. The fact that the update wasn't released yesterday as stated makes me think that there could be an issue with it. It would appear that some users have used the Insider program with no problems and some have had the boot loop issue

Redstone 2 is still on early versions...

You may want to read the build thread for 14915: http://forums.windowscentral.com/wi...d-14915-discussion-redstone-2;-fast-ring.html

View that through the lens of Elite X3 having the only SD 820 and 4GB RAM device in the field and optimization would likely be left out. It might also leave you out of receiving any OTA Firmware that HP may push.

Thanks for that. I am only considering (still) the release preview ring to get the anniversary update, not going to the fast ring or anything like that
