I think I am going to go with the Essential. I've never had a phone with water resistance so I'm already pretty used to not having it. And I don't usually take photos at night anyway, so again, not a huge problem. I really enjoyed your detailed post and appreciate that you took the time to compose it. Thanks brother :)
Triscuit, 26 Apr 2018Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) or Essential PH-1? Both are pretty much same price on 2 year carrier planIt's a toss-up between the PH-1 and the Galaxy A8. Both are very decent despite the negative press the PH-1 had, so in a nutshell it comes down to what you prefer. Run the comparison side by side, but in a nutshell:
PH-1 Advantages: build quality, screen size and resolution, performance (very snappy after the upgrade to 8.1), looks/design
Galaxy A8 Advantages: slim, light, decent performance, decent camera, IP68 rating, AMOLED screen (but lower pixel density than the PH-1).
To be honest, if at the same price I'd go for the Essential PH-1. It's a fantastic looking, high quality phone and it still has that unique factor... not to mention flagship performance at a bargain price. Lack of waterproofing and a poor-performance-in-low-light camera are it's biggest drawbacks and should be the deciding factors for you.

Great phone , camera update improved it drastically . Low light performance is still not good, especially videoing. Heats up alittle after Oreo. Design and build quality is top notch. Feels very premium. Snappy operation , snappy camera, at 450, itÂ’s well worth it.
JC, 22 Apr 2018So this phone is down to $350 at Amazon. I kind of wonder if Essential is in trouble as they'v... moreIt just happened that I was browsing here for something Android related that I saw your post. I have the Essential Phone. I like it a lot, but note that its camera doesn't even compare to the S8, Note 8 or Google Pixel. The 128GB allows only 100GB for apps, pics, and files, but that is plenty (I currently only use roughly 15-30gb for apps/pics/files). One major concern is that the phone can't be repaired if broken, unlike the Samsung or Apple products. More on the positive side, the phone can be bought unlocked, so you have the option to negotiate between carriers if need be. All-in-all the price, data storage, and same processor as S8 make it worthwhile in my book.
So this phone is down to $350 at Amazon. I kind of wonder if Essential is in trouble as they've slashed the price a couple times in a couple weeks. Is this phone worth $350, lots of complaints from buyers on amazon, especially people on tmobile related to signal strength, aside from other issues unrelated to carrier.
Felt great after reading all the comments about this phone that nobody is complaining about the notch of this phone. Even in my own view, the notch of Essential Phone looks amazing as compared to any other phone currently available.
Which is the best color in your opinion? I cant decide between the white or halo gray.

This phone compares to the $1200 phones at less than half the price. It is a wonderful phone. No issues and the company behind it is a real class act.
Just bought the phone couple days ago and upgraded to 8.1 OS. Loving it so far without major complaints.
However, I've noticed the touch screen responsiveness being slow or sometimes not responding at all when I text. I would have to push down harder to the screen before it responses.
Anyone else experiencing this issue or knows how to fix it? Or did I just get a lemon?

AnonD-694650, 02 Apr 2018can someone tell me, is it dual sim and after oreo, what is the picture quality now?Not dual sim, picture quality is good and on par with other phones if using a gcam port (plenty available online) with the latest gcam port the front facing camera quality is outstanding, definely better than the rear one, if you're into selfies.
