Since the Pixel phones are a disapointment, it loks like great alternative.
The PH-1 is a very solid phone that lacks certain features to make it a truly complete "Essential" phone. The software is great and hardware is premium so that is a pretty good thing. No bloatware either if you buy it directly from Essential. The camera on the other hand... garbage. If you are a consumer looking for a phone with a premium build and solid specs while not caring about the camera, the PH-1 may be your best choice. With the recent price drop, this phone is looking a lot more appealing to non-mainstream consumers.

Price is now down to $499.
After using it for couple of weeks, I would say I am very happy with phone, hardware is amazing and software is pure Android like Pixel, it has IP54 for water and dust proof, battery life is good too, just wish camera can be par with Note 8 or iPhone 7/8 Plus.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2017Why review a phone only 5000 people have bought... Who cares? All youtubers did it. The phone has been talked. The company didn't sold just 5000. That is just from Sprint. Overall is a good phone. So why not?

This is one of the few bezelless phones that aren't still massive in size despite the shrunken bezels. The compromises they made to get rid of the bezels are fairly mild. It's one of the few phones I might shell out hundreds of $ on. Only reason I won't consider it is because this Lenovo Zuk Edge I'm using is so similar to it and serves my needs perfectly. The bezels might be bigger, but 16:9 vids are displayed at the same size, so I don't care that much. Also no on-screen nav buttons.
Vic4BBM, 16 Sep 2017In my opinion, 3 phones are beautiful gadgets in terms of design - EPH1, IPHONE X and Mi Mix 2... moreThis phone really not for the masses but for the people who like style more than the other two you mentioned. Essential phone really beautiful expensive but beautiful especially in the dark green with golden trim.
It has better screen to body ratio than iPhone X. IPhone X is nothing new in design just a copy from Essential and with bigger bezels.
Nothing special here; no expandable memory, no IP68, limited GPS, expensive. Nothing to see here, move along folks...
Please, do a review of this smartphone!!! not just big brands are interesting...
