$200 off the white model and free 360 camera is looking pretty attractive.

For $399 I'll buy one. Or, if they eliminate the lower bezel, I'll buy it for $899.

This seems like a sign that this Essential phone is not selling well and they have a lot of stock, if they're already discounting the price that significantly. Anyway, with all the problems this phone has had and the not very good camera, I think the Ph-1 will be an interesting option when the price gets more in the $400 range.

Considering no 3.5 jack very doubtful update, no support, bad camera etc, I think this device worth no more than 350 USD. But even for this price one will get it at his own risk and expense in case if something happens to device.
