Believe it or not, the Essential Phone is now listed at a new all-time low price of $224
You probably didn’t need an in-depth review to tell Andy Rubin’s ambitious Essential Phone was not worth a whopping $699 off the bat, but bargain hunters who managed to snag the “edge-to-edge” handset for a measly $250 during Amazon’s Prime Day blowout last month are still over the moon with their purchase.

After scoring an official Android 9 Pie update at the exact same time as Google’s own Pixel devices, a $330 deal arguably felt compelling enough just a few days ago. But as unlikely as it seemed, that price has dropped again... twice.

A $280 listing over the weekend brought it dangerously close to that all-time low on Prime Day, and now, believe it or not, the Halo Gray Essential Phone is even cheaper. Cheaper than $280 and cheaper than $250.

A paltry $223.99 buys you the unlocked titanium and ceramic handset today with a hefty 128 gigs of internal storage space, as well as 4GB RAM, a sharp 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen with 2560 x 1312 resolution, Snapdragon 835 processing power, and (rapidly improving) dual 13MP rear-facing cameras.

There’s no “catch” here or any type of carrier strings attached, and the brand-new, unused and untouched phone is covered by a standard warranty. It’s also shipped (for free) and sold by Amazon, as well as fully compatible with all major US networks, be them GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile) or CDMA operators (Verizon and Sprint).
Of course, we have no idea how long this latest (and all-time greatest) special offer is supposed to last, but it’s definitely smart to hurry and pull the trigger ASAP.
