The Elite x3 is a powerful smartphone that runs  Windows 10 Mobile aimed at business users who store important information on their devices and need to work on their projects anytime, anywhere. With the help of the Continuum feature, the smartphone will offer a complete desktop experience when connected to an external monitor and keyboard, while HP Workspace ($49) is an application that users can use to run virtualized legacy Windows in Continuum mode.

In order to use Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum mode, you will need to install only UWP apps that support it. With HP Workspace app, users will be able to run legacy desktop applications such as Internet Explorer, Chrome or Office 2013. However, this is a premium service that comes with a price and business users need to pay a monthly subscription:

– If users pay $49 per month, they will be limited to 4GB of RAM, ten applications and 40 hours of usage.

– If users pay $79 per month, they will get a double the amount of RAM and hours of monthly usage, as well as unlimited applications.

If you want to use HP Workspace, you should know that it will work with HP’s Desk Dock and the Lap Dock, even if the latter is not currently available. Unfortunately, virtual applications will not run as smooth as when running them on real computers, but this is because the phone has weaker specs and it’s understandable.

The Elite x3 is powered by a high-end Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad-core Kryo processor with two cores clocked at 2.15 GHz and two cores clocked at 1.6 GHz, backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Its display is massive, measuring 5.96-inches and supporting QHD resolution for a pixel density of 494ppi. When it comes to internal memory, its capacity is 64GB but can be expanded to up to 256GB for plenty of room to save pictures and videos captured with the 16MP rear camera or the 8MP front camera. Finally, the device will have a last long with its giant 4150 mAh battery.
