Essential Phone gets more improvements via Camera app update
by Cosmin Vasile / Jun 01, 2018, 12:07 PM
If you remember, Essential added the option to share 360 photos to the Camera app a few months ago, but the latest update makes it even easier to share pictures or videos as a Snapshot, Pano, or Tiny Planet. Moreover, Essential Phone users can turn 360 photos into short Panoramic or Tiny Planet animations.
As far as the settings go, Essential redesigned a couple of aspects of the app to make it cleaner and easier to use. The developers offer the best description of these changes, so here it goes:
Finally, the Essential Camera app received a couple of tweaks and adjustments as well, but some of them might be invisible to the eye. Even if Essential won't launch another smartphone in the near future, at least they're dedicated to offering the best support they can to everyone who bought an Essential Phone.

So do I. I may get the Essential PH1 at a decent price on eBay.

I snagged one from Sprint when they were $120, it’s a great phone! I occasionally activate it when I’m wanting something different from my X. The speed is great, camera is just the only disappointing part.

It sucks that the Essential phone wasn't a big seller. It was a very underrated phone that is one of the best stock Android phones available outside the Pixel phones. It continues to get security updates and Android version updates.
