    Showing once more that the asking price is way over the top. I edited my post to include the critical portion of the review, I'm guessing they used non-native Chrome, which would explain their bad experience using the browser.

    One more note on that review, this bit suggests the reviewer is not aware of how this all works, or is playing the role of typical uninformed end user:

    "And, more importantly, don’t lie to the user -- if 64-bit apps won’t work, don’t call this a 64-bit operating system." :D

    That is odd, because she is by far, the most knowledgeable person there.

    From my limited reading of WOA/WOS device reviews it seems nearly all of them miss the distinction between native ARM 64-bit apps and x64 Windows apps.

    A new fairly positive review of the Flex 5G

    However he gets some things about WOA architecture fundamentally wrong, so take it with a grain of salt. Though he is right about the great battery life, but just not quite for the reasons he cites.
