Essential Phone is $399 from the manufacturer with free camera, earphones and case valued at $107
Ok, you screwed up and failed to take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day sale on the Essential Phone. You might recall that the device was priced at an all-time low of $250 during the festivities. But that was then, and this is now. Essential itself has the handset priced at $399 on the company's website. And if you buy it from the manufacturer, you will receive a few free accessories that would normally cost you an additional $107.

The free accessories included with the purchase of the Essential Phone from Essential include:

  • Free 360 modular camera ($49 value)
  • Free HD earphones ($49 value)
  • Free Case ($9 value)
The deal is available for the Black Moon or Pure White color options, and with financing the phone costs only $19 a month. Essential has shown that when it comes to updates, it can hang with those Google branded Pixel models. If you're interested, click on the sourcelink below.

I agree. His comments and another comment are essentially worthless since he is just being Greenman and the other guy is just trying needlessly attack Essential just because it manages to outdo some of their favorite choices.

For once, I agree with you. The Essential Phone has been a failure from the start, and it started with the high price. Even other companies that produced a “midrange” smartphones which some other guy here referred to as outdated managed to outdo the Essential Phone in many aspects, including sales. But leave it up to him to say people are “needlessly attacking” the Essential Phone, when he needlessly and incessantly attacks other brands on almost every article that is posted about them.

Well you are needlessly attacking the essential phone, that shoe fits you well.

This isn’t a “needless attack”, it’s me pointing out facts. Can you deny that the price was too high at launch, or that it didn’t have several issues at launch? No, you can’t. Funny how I don’t see you on BlackBerry or Nokia articles when that guy that agreed with you is “needlessly attacking” them. Hypocrite much?

39. Venom

No, he's right. It's just you attacking Essential for no reason other than to get back at me. You got called out and now you are trying to save face.

44. meanestgenius

Posts: 22482; Member since: May 28, 2014

So if he’s right, then I’m right about you attacking BlackBerry and Nokia to get back are me, correct? I call you out every time for it, and all you do is walk your statements back in an effort to save face. If you say I’m wrong, either he’s wrong as well, or you’re flat out lying.

You got called out. Stop trying to walk back now. You started the fire, and now you are getting burned badly.

LMAO! That line has always been lame, even when you’ve used it with your other accounts. Nice deflection, by the way.

54. Venom

Lol, other accounts? Go home meanest. You are clearly drunk.

56. meanestgenius

Lol, yep, you’re other accounts. Go home Mxy. You are clearly fabricating.

I'm not the one who is using you're instead of your. You are indeed drunk if you think I'm someone else.

61. meanestgenius

Posts: 22482; Member since: May 28, 2014

But you’re certainly the one that doesn’t know how to use punctuation correctly, lol. And everyone here knows about your multiple accounts. You must be drunk if you think people don’t know. You can quit it with the denial now.

The old saying, if the shoe fits, wear it definitely applies here. Now watch the denial and the backtracking.

Just like the other guy who is doing nothing but talking out of their backside, I would say that your comment is unessential to the article. Of course, they will say what they say about the Essential phone just because it's getting Android P while their choice is just now moving on to Oreo. A beta version of Oreo at that. Oh and it's also getting the security updates as well. Guaranteed.

Just like you’re saying his comment is “unessential” to the article, so is your response to him. You constantly complain about people attacking you for having a different opinion on other articles, yet here you are, attacking him for having a different opinion from you. The hypocrisy is so real with you. Oh, and my “choice” OEM is getting Android P, as my favorite are Nokia branded smartphones, with BlackBerry branded smartphones at the number two spot for me, and they are both getting those security updates, guaranteed. They will both also still be around in the next year or so. Will Essential? Probably not, lol.

Drop the act. The only reason you are even defending Greenman, a user that you happen to disagree with on numerous occasions btw, is because he said something negative about Essential in a way that comes across as trolling. And I see that you are still trying to get shots in at Essential. May I remind you about the firesale AT&T had recently?

45. meanestgenius

Posts: 22482; Member since: May 28, 2014

Agreeing with someone isn’t defending them. Stop deflecting from the factual point that I made. You can’t complain about people attacking you for your “opinion” and you go and do the same thing to him. That’s not how this works. Facts aren’t taking shots, lol. And fire sale is what’s slowly happening here, lol.

If you weren't defending him, then we wouldn't be having this discussion. You are just trying to save face again. At least Essential is keeping their products updated. What's your excuse for BlackBerry?

52. meanestgenius

Posts: 22482; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lol. It’s clear that I wast defending him. We’re only having this conversation because it’s me that said something that you don’t agree with. At least BlackBerry is keeping their products secure with the monthly security patches (more important than full OS updates, IMO) and their latest will be updated to the next OS, their branded smartphones are outselling Essential, and both BlackBerry and BlackBerry Mobile/TCL will be around in the next year or so. Will Essential be around then? I doubt it.

55. Venom

Posts: 3821; Member since: Dec 14, 2017

Don't try to walk back your statement now after you were called out on it. You just confessed right here, "It’s clear that I wast defending him." Essential is also keeping the Essential phone updated with Android updates and security updates. Blackberry is still lagging far behind when it comes to consistent Android updates. Btw, don't think that I haven't noticed something in your comment.

57. meanestgenius

Posts: 22482; Member since: May 28, 2014

Don’t try and deflect from the fact that you attacked me for saying something that you don’t agree with. And no, I wasn’t defending him. It’s clear that part of my previous comment was a typo. Nice try, though. “A” for effort and all that, lol. HMD is also keeping their Nokia branded smartphones updated with both security and full OS updates, of which BlackBerry Mobile is doing the same for their BlackBerry branded smartphones with security updates. But what’s even better is both Nokia and BlackBerry smartphones will still be around this time next year, lol. Will Essential? I doubt it. Btw, don’t think I don’t know who you really are.

59. Venom

You got called out by another user. You even admitted that you just said what you did just because of me, which led to you defending Greenman. Don't backtrack now. Really because I could have sworn the Nokia 7 Plus is still in beta phase while the Essential phone is already in rollout stage, but don't let the facts stop you from making up conjectures. Blackberry is still around, but they were forced out of the game, and now they can barely compete with what they have.

You’re still deflecting, lol. As I said, agreeing with someone and defending them are two different things. I know that’s hard for you to comprehend, but try anyway. The only thing I admitted to was having an opinion about something, like you always claim. Except my “opinions” are backed by facts in this case, unlike yours. Nokia branded smartphones are still going to get updated to Android P, and still get fast monthly security updates. They also outsell Essential by a wide margin (just picking one, the Nokia 6 outsold Essential), and Nokia branded smartphones will still be around this time next year. But don’t let Jr facts stop you from deflecting and fabricating. BlackBerry is still around, has been growing profits quarter after quarter, the KEYᵒⁿᵉ outsold the Essential Phone, and BlackBerry has three OEM’s to build, market, etc their branded smartphones. All of this will still be happening this time next year. We both know that the same can’t be said for Essential, lol.

If only they have launched it originally on 499, their current situation would have been much better...

Right, it will be instant hit if they launch it at $499 and with free 360 camera.
