HP video shows why the Elite x3 should be owned by every cop in the field

HP has produced a video that shows various reasons why the Windows 10 Mobile powered HP Elite x3 smartphone needs to be given out to all cops before they go out on their daily tour. As the video tells us, a typical day could demand that an officer enter evidence, respond to a call, or file paperwork. The HP Elite x3 helps with all of these tasks and more. The 6-inch AMOLED screen has a 1440 x 2560 resolution making it perfect for taking notes during the daily briefing and when reviewing images of suspects. And because it is powered by Windows, the phone is compatible with most police departments' desktop computers.
Thanks to the 4150mAh battery inside the device, the Elite x3 is powered up through a cop's complete shift. There is no need to handcuff a suspect to a light pole while the officer heads to a bathroom looking for an outlet. With LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, the device can be connected to the world inside and outside the station. And the Elite x3 allows cops to install department apps making it easier for him or her to finish certain tasks. For example, the phone eliminates the need to take notes like Joe Friday did, with a pad and pen.
Instead, field notes can be taken and witnesses interviewed right at the scene of the crime. When the officer returns to his car, he can plug the Elite x3 into the Lap Dock, allowing him to have the power and ease of a lap top to help him file reports from the field.
Check out this unique sales pitch by HP as it tries to show city managers why they should spend some of their budget money earmarked for police and emergency services, on the HP Elite x3. Just click on the video at the top of the story.

He's on the job and looks focused to me. It's no secret that HP was definitely targeting enterprise with this device, and is marketing it as a serious work phone.

It's a productivity device, not an entertainment device. I'm not a fan of Windows mobile, but for police work it'd probably be better than Android or iOS.

Microsoft Edge, on my Lumia 640 with the Anniversary update, crashes many times every minute! Windows 10 Mobile do not support almost any at all of the apps a policeman needs, and Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary update is so unstable and laggy that nobody can trust it even for taking phonecalls. Android and iOS have far better productivity apps, including far better versions of all Microsofts apps, Word...!

+1 Sorry to say (or not), but most phones with native W10M work better. I had a 640 which felt so laggy on this OS. Then I had a 550, 650, 950 as well. The 650, and of course the 950 was just fine. The 550 wasn't bad either but it seemed faster than the 640. I never really see crashing. The few times I have. it has been with either 8/8.1 apps really or an app is acting up but I don't see it much.
