HP slashes Elite x3 price to $399
HP is slashing the price of the Elite x3 for the holidays.
If you've had your eye on the HP Elite x3, HP is offering up a solid discount on the HP Elite x3. HP has dropped the price of the Elite x3 to $399 (opens in new tab). Though it's still not in impulse-buy territory, that's a full $300 down from its list price.
For your money, you'll pick up a Windows 10 Mobile device powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM, and a 4,150 mAh battery. The screen is a 5.96-inch 2560 x 1440 AMOLED panel, and cameras include 16MP and 8MP shooters on the rear and front, respectively. A fingerprint reader is also on board, as is an iris scanner.
The HP Elite x3 is more than a year old at this point, and, as a platform, Windows phone is on the outs, However, if you're not looking to jump ship to Android or iOS yet, the Elite x3 is one of the last high-end Windows 10 Mobile handsets to be released, making it attractive for anyone looking to stick with the platform – especially at a discount.
Thanks for the tips, everyone!
