Reddit AMA reveals that Stellar Gray will be the next color available for the Essential Phone
As far as what changes the team would make to the phone in hindsight, the team members refused to answer because these are the things that are going to be added as new features for the second generation Essential Phone. And don't expect Essential to push out its own line of cases either. "Plastic bumpers is not where we generate the most impact in the world of consumer electronics," said a team member. Instead, Essential was open with third party manufacturers allowing them to build "good stuff." In addition, the company felt that the phone was durable enough, especially with Gorilla Glass 5, to get by without a case. The Essential Phone is "best-in-class" when it comes to surviving drops claimed a team member.
One major complaint about the phone was how difficult it is to repair, based on a report by iFixit. When someone asked whether the PH-2 will be made easier to repair, the team member who answered pointed out that the phone was designed to be repaired using a different methodology as used by iFixit.
