Even so, $689 is still a hefty sum, but if your budget doesn't stretch far enough to buy an Elite x3, you might be interested in another deal currently available on T-Mobile. The carrier is now offering Alcatel's flagship-class IDOL 4S with Windows 10 for 33% ($144) below its regular price, reducing it to just $288.
Like the Elite x3, the IDOL 4S also has a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, along with a USB-C port and a 21-megapixel rear camera. It also comes with a virtual reality headset, but you'll have to buy a docking solution separately. You can find out more about the Alcatel device in our detailed review here.
