HP Elite x3 Video and Specs, High End Windows 10 Mobile Device



The majority of Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile devices in active use are running on low to mid range hand sets, and while there are some well spec’d devices out there such as the Lumia 930, 950/XL and 1520, it is usually more modest devices that we see getting launched especially by third party OEM’s.
