I can't wait for Essential to make a big splash. This co. has huge potential!
People read too much into this, people always move around in this industry.
In reply to the question posed in the last line, I would say, not really. The Essential Phone looked very gimmicky right from the start and has quite a few drawbacks. And considering the important people leaving this young unproven company, things are already looking downhill.

Given Essential's specs, it might NOT be cut out or ahead of other competitions.
Their promised feature to be modular of some sort might not influence consumers as well.

And then there are all the Chinese phones.
maybe they find the device not so "essential", that's why executives leave the company.
I am kind of looking forward to it but not sure how it's going to compare to the other phones in the second half of the year. But hurry up already :)
"Are you guys still looking forward to see what the Essential Phone has to offer?"
Yes and No...
on paper, it looks good and the promises given were okay. However, consumers are already fed up of hyped promises not living up to the expectation so we'll take that with a pinch of salt.
Unless Essential Phone exceeds the expectations, we're not sure if this will ever fly given the bad rep it has from execs leaving the company.
