Let's be real: printing from a smartphone is a fuss. We use our smartphones for everything. They're incredibly capable, and can even help us get plenty of work done. But, now and then, it always comes back to printing, and then the fuss begins all over. That's something the HP ENVY 6000 Series solves.

With a basic printer, the process of printing from your smartphone might look something like this: You open a document on your phone. You save it onto your phone. You email that file to yourself. You open the email on your computer. You print the document off from the computer.

That's too many steps for something that should be simple. If computer users can just hit Ctrl+P to print, Android users should have a simple option, too. That's what the HP ENVY 6055 and HP ENVY Pro 6455 provide.
