With that Front camera right over the display, isn't it going to be covering the screen? Full screen apps like games or movies will probably need to be sized down, which wont look good. Other than this and a few other shortcomings, its a really good device.
Obviously it is essentially overpriced. Oneplus 5 which is 30% cheaper would be a better buy.
islandmobile, 07 Jun 2017Maybe you're ignorant of the build materials being used here. Titanium frame. Ceramic back. No... moreScreens crack. Bezels don't. I personally like small bezels, but I get the point about small bezels look fragile though. Never thought about that before.
expressmobile, 30 May 2017I dont know what to say...but every bezelless phone look so fragile for me.Maybe you're ignorant of the build materials being used here. Titanium frame. Ceramic back. Not to mention Gorilla Glass 5. Do these sound like fragile materials to you?
[deleted post]When they tryna introduce us to a "Essential Phone" but some of the essential stuff and important feature are missing. This is how "smart" they are. They should call this phone "The Non-Essential Phone"
goodfellow, 05 Jun 2017They should bump up the ram to at least 6 gb for a phone with this specthey are saying the os will be heavily optimized for the phone similar how ios is for apple
What's the deal with 3,5 mm head phone jack everybody is bitching about? Use the adapter or buy another phone as long as there still will be one left with it.
They should bump up the ram to at least 6 gb for a phone with this spec
Polius, 04 Jun 2017No sd card slot, no earjack, no water resistant. All the essential features are not provided b... moreAdd NO Dual SIM to the list of its shortcomings.
Dual SIM is the only feature that would make me leave iPhone and iMessage.
Plus one more thing about this phone. Since it is called Essential Phone, the price of the phone should be around the essential price of a normal phone lmao and not 750 usd lol
xXENDER FREAKXx, 04 Jun 2017How is this essential when they miss out the essential specs like IP68 and SD Card Slot lmaoAnd headphone jack
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2017Dont forget it also doesnt have expandable storage or water resistance.I don't care about the lack of memory card slot because it has 128 GB of onboard storage, but by the way there is a way to expand the memory attaching a card on the back of the phone(this is what I understood from his interview).
The lack of IP rating is not a huge surprise, because Pixel phones also lacks it. The second Essential will have it, and the Pixel 2 will have it too for sure.
How is this essential when they miss out the essential specs like IP68 and SD Card Slot lmao
Such capable selfie would go well with xzp that got 4K screen. The only phones coming close that I know are samsung's S and notes with QHD video.
I wonder how you will dowload apps on this phone, since it says it uses a different OS(not Android), will play store work for this or they will make a new store for this Phone?. Besides this the specs and design are amazing.
No sd card slot, no earjack, no water resistant. All the essential features are not provided by this so-called Essential phone. I dont mind no radio but those three missing features is a deal breaker.
Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2017Sadly this becoming a new trend. This is not the first one without the 3.5 mm jack.Dont forget it also doesnt have expandable storage or water resistance.
