    I ran the 720p video test but forgot to stop it after an hour. Sorry, it ran for 1hr:17min. It started with battery level at 100% and was 88.4% after the 77 minutes. Screen brightness was at 40% for the test. I'm working on the browser test. I probably won't run the Asphalt test.

    I just received my elite x2. I can confirm that windows hello with fingerprint works. Another positive surprise: gps is also included in the lte version although it was not even mentioned. My only problem so far is, that the usb c port did not work with a usb c to usb a adapter from amazon. I tried this to connect a second usb drive. And it was just not recognized. Can someone else please test this?

    Works on my system. I'm using an adapter cable I got with my Nexus 5x phone from Google. This is it : https://store.google.com/product/usb_type_c_to_usb_standard_a_adapter

    Lucky fellas! I eagerly wait for your review!

    Im thinking about getting this or the thinkpad x1 tablet. I had tried the thinkpad yoga 14 at Best Buy which has Wacom ES. My impressions where that compared to the surface had a way shorter hover distance, the lines where pretty jittery but the pressure curve was amazing. Almost as good as the cintiq that I own. And better then the surface, when it came to consistency.It has a hard tip but I think the elite is comparable with Wacom smart that has felt tips. I like some resistance when I draw.

    I wonder how this compares to the yoga 14 and if it improved on anything else.

    Thanks sharing the results.
    That's a really good level of the battery life.
    I remember watching one and a half hour video 720p at 40% brightness level and m3 sp4(in two different unit) and both lost almost 25%.
    It was simple tragic and deal breaker.

    Seems HP with Elite x2 doing very good job in power efficient in all perimeter.than MS do.

    Do I understand it correctly that there is no video output on the tablet, other than using the USB C with an adaptor? Is this the same port that is used to charge the device? I am trying to decide between this tablet, the Lenovo X1 tablet, and the Toshiba z20t-C(skylake). I think both the HP and Toshiba don't have a dedicated video out port, which I don't like.

    There's no dedicated video output port like HDMI or display port.
    Actually in coming years the last 2 port will be eliminate by USB C only port.
    Yes the USB C is both for charging and connect to external device like monitor or tv via adaptor.

    Hey zeek.

    I'm very interested to know how the display is. Do you have any colorimeter like i1Display Pro to check sRGB/Adobe RGB, gamma and contrast?

    And on more thing. If you have a good headphones/iem, can you check if the headphone audio output is clean? I mean, if you connect the headphones, there is any background noise or hiss if no sound is played? I had this issue with the Surface 3 in the past and was annoying.

    Thank you in advance.

    Throtteling would be nice to test. Try running Cinebench R15 and watch task manager while doing so. What frequencies do you get?

    You could also use a USB to video adapter and still charge via USB-C.
