This phone could be perfect but I am totally happy with my trusty Iphone SE. I can’t afford it yet because if its productivity I am after, I might buy a real laptop instead.

I find these phones compromised. Yes, you get the full Windows 10 experience regardless on what form factor you use, but you can’t use the legacy Windows apps on this phone (even docked) until Microsoft puts out the ARM-x86 emulation update.

It looks nice! I wonder if it will sell well since everyone’s not too familiar with HP as a smartphone.
