The second generation Essential Phone might not be very far now (the company has even started promising improvements), but for those who are planning to purchase the first-gen PH-1, you'll be happy to know the device is currently going for $399.
Retailers Amazon and Best Buy are currently selling the handset - black and white variants - at this price. If you compare, that's down $100 from the phone's usual price at these outlets, and $200 less from the device's official price.
