Competition is everywhere in the tech industry. Recently, people have been pitting HP's Spectre with Apple's Macbook Pro. It has been noted that these devices are prepping up to win the big techno brawl.

Microsoft Stays In The Sidelines

For the moment, Microsoft busying itself with the demands and preparation of its other devices such as the Surface Phone. In the future, Microsoft could have the upper hand in flagships phones with all the work the company is focusing on its Surface Phone design.
