Tired of overpriced flagships that are slow to get upgrades? The Essential Phone is neither of those things – for one, it already runs Android 9.0 Pie. For another, it’s currently $224 over at Amazon in the US.
The Essential is pretty awesome – clean Android and Snapdragon 835 power make it similar to the Pixel 2 XL, it has plenty of storage (128GB) and good camera. It’s one potential fallback is the parent company – it doesn’t seem long for this world.
Well, then I'm up to spend $200+ latest phone non-flagship or flagship. As long as its repair part is available. Suckers keep justifying a dead brand. Not worth it. Even Pixel is selling at $300 now with android Pie too.
If the second Essential is also broken then there will be no future at all for those phone.
If you buy a $448 flagship and smash the screen, it will still cost you more to fix than 2 Essentials...
