Default The Essential Phone now $499

I guess it wasn't selling well. Probably make a nice backup/business phone.

https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/22/...ut-499-android

Essential is slashing the price of its eponymous phone, down to $499 at its website. That’s a $200 price cut from the original $699 price, less than two months after it began shipping to customers. There is really no other way to read the move except as a signal that it wasn’t selling well at $699 — especially given that the only US carrier stores it’s available in have “Sprint” above the door. It certainly doesn’t help that it now has to face the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL head-to-head.


Kind of hard to go up against Google and Samsung at $700 price points.

Looks like an awesome phone. It's really the only Android phone I have any interest in at all.

I just ordered one, with the $99 replacement plan. Price is really good, reviews seem solid, and my iPhone's battery seems to be slipping. I'll probably be back to Apple in 1-2 years, we'll see though. I can still sell my iPhone for a good amount, makes the change pretty inexpensive.

They just received a camera software update that fixes alot of issue the camera had.

This is probably the best Android phone on the market right now. At least in terms of value to performance.

edit: more on their blog

Nice, that's great to hear. I'm looking forward to trying it out, but won't sell my iPhone till I know for sure I'm good with the new device.

This thing is NICE. The fingerprint sensor works very well, the phone feels super premium and very nice in the hands. It's heavier than I expected, but much smaller than my 6s+. It's as if you cut the top bezel off the 6s+ entirely, and extend the screen halfway down the home button. Really impressed by this thing in my short time with it. I also didn't have to call MetroPCS to set it up, so that's a nice thing. Wasn't so lucky when I transferred my iPhone to them...
