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.

I know the company had to release a patch that fixed an issue with the software, I'm hoping that it resolved the problems. The camera and photo quality are major aspects of importance for me, any information you could provide would be really helpful. Thank you.

Only ridiculous $930 Samsung and $1030 iPhone phones deserve review .
hero, 03 Mar 2018All these great features and then..... You cant offer image stabilization? jeezHoping that can Ben fixed with a software patch, but your right.
I'm using this device now. As a simple guy , i really liked this phone.
+ amazing screen , attractive design , powerful performance.
- battery could be good , no special features at all , unfortunately bad camera.
I had the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe before the Essential PH-1 and I have to say I am very surprised! It has only 4 Gbs ram, and the Asus had 6 Gbs ram, but it runs so smooth! I will be a customer for life now with this Essential phone! Keep up the great work!

I have had this phone for a week now and all I can say is that this is a truly great phone and a great value to boot. The design is flawless, smooth, easy to hold and a great full screen. Excellent materials are included with this phone. Titanium, Gorilla glass and hi-tech ceramic. The picture quality is excellent. The camera is excellent and the 360 phone is something the others haven't really developed out like this one. Storage is fine, memory is fine and the way I buy phones is every 5 years, (I am not a slave to the current movement of buying every year) this makes this phone a truly amazing bargain. I purchased this phone with 360 camera attachment for 499.00 US on Amazon so its their model with Aleza built in. It all works beautifully on Oreo 8.1 which loaded after install in an hour combined. I will buy another for my wife and we will still cheaper in price than some deals for the new Galaxies. It works on any carrier so we can move about freely. It meets our needs. I couldn't be happier.
