Essential Phone is now officially available in five more countries
The Essential Phone was for a long time a US affair, but that's about to change since the company behind the flagship smartphone announced it has decided to open official stores in four more countries.

In fact, Essential started to sell its smartphone in Canada earlier this month via Amazon, while one carrier offered a limited variety of color options as well. However, starting today, Essential confirmed that customers in five other countries will be able to order the Essential Phone from dedicated stores.

According to Essential, official stores are now opened in five more countries: Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK. There are some special terms and conditions that apply when you buy the Essential Phone from these countries, as well as additional terms applicable to international orders.

Five more countries might not be that much in the grand scheme of things, but for a company that only shipped 90,000 units during the first six months after the Essential Phone was launched, could be an important sale boost.

Honestly, best phone on the market for price. Just somewhat heavy but that's the downside of actual premium materials rather than cheap aluminum and glass.

It feels like the phones been out for almost a year, but the reality is that it was announced 11 months ago and released 8 months ago. Flop lol

They don't have big marketing arms, they're just starters last year. You look at asus and sony's shipping pattern in the past, they're worse for huge corporations.

Andy Rubin thought his name was enough to launch this phone, and that too at flagship price levels. The reality is, it was too expensive with a really bad camera. The only real redeeming feature was it's incredible build. And no one really cared about the father of Android. Interested in seeing what they do with the Essential 2. Essential's market is a lot more competitive now with Nokia and One Plus stepping up their game.

The fix needed for Essential 2, no notch and AMOLED screen.
