HP Elite X3 vs iPhone 6s Plus vs LG G5: specs comparison

5

The newly launched HP Elite X3 is the best Windows 10 Mobile phone so far: with a massive 6-inch display, the Snapdragon 820 system chip and - most importantly - full support for Windows 10 Continuum and the option to use it to power a desktop and a laptop shell, it's as versatile as it gets.

What about the HP Elite X3 specs, though? Microsoft flagships have often been a bit behind when it comes to the specifications of their devices and this has affected sales negatively.

In order to see how the HP Elite X3 does in the specs department, we compare it against Android's latest, the LG G5, and Apple's best - the iPhone 6s Plus. We compare them in various areas: display technology and resolution, cameras, processors, storage and so on. With Snapdragon 820 on board, the Elite X3 finally seems to stand a chance against the rest of the top dogs out there, don't you think?
