Description

The HP Elite x3 is the newest member in the Windows 10 Mobile fleet: a gigantic, 5.96-inch phone, it's a device built for business, running on the latest and most powerful Snapdragon 820 system chip.In terms of design, though, the HP Elite x3 is decidedly uninspiring with its plastic body and rather generic design. Other hardware features include 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, expandable via microSD cards, Iris scanner, fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C. There is 16MP camera on the back, as well as 8MP front shooter. The phone is powered by 4,150mAh.

    • IP certified:

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 493 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
