So I recently purchased an Essential Phone to replace my cracked Note 5 and I have to say this thing is fast. I wasn’t a first adopter so I’m not experiencing the issues a lot of users are reporting. Yes the camera does suck but I really don’t use camera’s that often.
The phone is beautiful, the build quality is as good as it gets, the screen works very well in direct sunlight, the size is very manageable for the average hand size and the nearly stock Android doesn’t hurt.
If you’re in the market for an affordable flagship phone with an edge to edge screen (they did it first), 128 gigs of storage, 4 gigs of ram, a Snapdragon 835, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and a premium titanium frame, this is the one for you.
