Like the Essential Phone's wallpaper? Download it for your Android phone now!

Andy Rubin's Essential Phone is supposed to compete with other flagship phones like the Apple iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8. It features a Gorilla Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch edge-to-edge screen with a resolution of 1312 x 2560, and is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC with a 2.45GHz octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of native storage.

Two 13MP cameras grace the back, one snapping in color and the other in monochrome. That combination will allow you to take quality pictures under low-light conditions. An 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. On back are a pair of magnetic ports for modular accessories. Currently, a 360-degree camera is available. Keeping the lights on is a 3,040mAh battery, and Android Nougat is pre-installed.

For many of you purists out there, the Essential Phone is completely unblemished by carrier trademarks and manufacturer logos. And with its Titanium and Ceramic build, you might get away with dropping the phone a few times without leaving a mark on your new device. Make no mistake about it. If you want that edge-to-edge display, the magnetic ports for modular accessories, the lack of trademarks all over the body of your phone, and the ability to brag to everyone that your phone was designed by the 'father of Android," you will need to buy the Essential Phone. But if you merely want to have the same wallpaper from the Essential Phone on your current handset, that can be done without you laying out even one red penny.

There are six different wallpapers to choose from, and each one is sure to look pretty cool on your Android phone. Check out the wallpaper from the Essential Phone by clicking on the slideshow below.

Why did PA skip the previewing of the Essential phone?

They probably were never sent a review unit given the bias of the site.

Look up PA's article titled "The Essentials Phone was Designed to Flop". One of PhoneArena's resident geniuses (Kaloyan C.) wanted this phone to fail as soon as it was announced. Too bad nobody educated them on subjectivity in writing, because we all knew what happened when Microsoft doubted the iPhone ever having a chance at success.

They are still reviewing other tech sites reviews to see which one they can post here. They don't actually write original content.
