Still confused MS has a feature that no one else has. Continuum looks like a great feature, a great way to target business users and others who could use an all-in-one. Why does a MS based phone need a Gmail , Google maps or Chromecast? How many businesses would use gmail over MS office?

Reviewing a business / smartphone should be more than how many apps in has available or amount of it's marketshare.

I'm using the Elite X3 in a small business environment for about two months. It is, effectively, a 3-in-1 device. With Continuum I'm able to perform at the desk many "go to phone" tasks, like messaging. I feel it's a huge productivity boost. Also, a small business can easily setup a Remote Desktop Host Server (as my business does), use the phone as a thin client, and have all the full-featured programs and services at the desktop (without relying on the expensive HP services). All the jabber about paucity of apps and "ecosystem" sounds to me a lot like what we used to call "vendor lock-in". I get all the services I need through the Edge browser, and most of the "apps" are just wrappers around a website, anyway.

Critical much? I knew it was gonna be a no review when right off the bat came "noticeably heavier than the iPhone 7 XL", at .21 oz. How in the hell you feel that difference is beyond me. Looked online for an example of things that weigh 1 ounce: slice of bread, 3.5 french fries. So the "noticeably heavier" is 1/5 of a slice of bread, or less than 1 french fry. If I add the rugged case, am I gonna be able to carry it? Gimme a break. And it's downhill from there. Not everybody that uses a phone wants to download crap to their phone, which is what most of the "20 gazillion million" of the iPhone and Android apps are. 99% is kid stuff. Windows Mobile will be back, and the people that want it are the people who are actually trying to do stuff other than Snapchat or Angry Birds.
