Pick up the Essential Phone from Amazon for $435, cheaper than the price Essential itself charges
The Essential Phone is $434.99 at Amazon
Yes, we said Android 8.1. You might be sitting with your Android flavored handset running Android Nougat and feeling a little frustrated. But you need to remember that the Essential Phone runs on stock Android, allowing users to be one of the first on the block to receive software updates.
Based on the Google Play Store listing of Essential's camera app, 50,000 to 100,000 units have been sold. There has been talk of a sequel to the PH-1 (PH-one, or PHone, get it?) which would include an IP67 certification rating; that happens to be the most requested change for an Essential Phone 2. The OG model sports an IP54 rating.
While we don't know when Amazon's sale will end, we can tell you that if you're looking to pick up the Essential Phone at a price lower than what Essential sells it for, click on the sourcelink below.
