Then go to your PC, and in a browser go to drive.google.com. Select 'download' for each photo.
There are plenty of other ways, but that's the lowest tech I can think of.
Hi, I just got this phone, I need some help transferring my pictures on it to my laptop. Any help will be appreciated.
My Essential Phone randomly got slow yesterday. It was like freezing up and got warmer. First time I've experienced it with this phone. I think the rule of thumb is to turn it off once in awhile. I probably hadn't rebooted it in over a month. Went back to normal ever since.
The one minor complaint is I do the 80/40 battery rule and use the Battery Notifier app. It rarely warns me once it reaches 80%. On my LG G5 on Marshmallow and V20 on Nougat, the app works flawlessly. It rings every time it reaches 40% to charge or 80% to discharge. Could be the app not optimized for Pie or the Essential gets into a deep sleep.
Still my favorite smartphone of all-time. Even got quite a few likes from Andy Rubin and @essential on Twitter. The battery life lasts quite awhile. I rarely use over 40% daily on it and rarely ever get it below 40%. It doesn't drain as fast with GPS on like my other phones do. Even my iPhone SE can drain really fast if tethered or if location is on.
Essential is the only one that can last an entire day without needing another phone for GPS.
I got my last month at 224usd from amazon. not a word of complain, full value for money. good built, specs, clean stock android software. Android 9 runs smoothly, already got one security update for android 9. I like the commitment level of this company when it comes to providing updates.
It's only been 26 days since I've owned it but the Essential Phone is the best smartphone I ever had and easily my favorite. I do notice battery drains a little faster the last few days but nothing as horrendous as my LG G5 that drains 1% every 2 minutes when playing a video.
The Google Pixel camera app also boosts the quality but just a little. Maybe from a 7 to 7.5. Higher during daylight. Very decent speaker and smooth UI experience. Charges very fast. Reception issues comes mostly from my carrier although reception is as good as my previous ones. I absolutely love Pie.
This is the Dreamcast and Shenmue of smartphones. I believe in Essential more than LG. Too bad we will never get a sequel.
Using Essential Phone since April on daily basis, I don't regret purchase it yet. Since I got Android Pie (9) update, it improved the signal strength and camera a lot. Battery can last a day and half, but the fingerprint is not that responsive than my old HTC One A9.

The Essential team have however mentioned that they are working with a fix.
I love my Essential Phone.

I love Android Pie. That's why Essential Phone is #1.

If you can't get it then that would just be your carrier that you are on but if you want to bypass that all you have to is factory reset your phone with the sim card out so that it doesn't require the build to come from your carrier
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2018Selling my iPhone X for this. Don't judge me.Good choice!
The Phone, yes. But for now it's only available with 8.1, when updating to 9 it disappeared. They say that they are working on an update , but as by now only with Oreo.
Check what Pie has done to Android phones.
Essential Phone is amazing on it. Surpassed my LG G5 as my favorite smartphone of all-time.
