Got mine on Feb 2018. Been using it for 1 week and all I could say is that it's pretty awesome! Coming from an LG G5 the speed improvement on the Essential is quite noticeable. Although I will surely miss the always on display of the G5. Camera quality I would say is about the same without the wide angle of the G5 which is another thing that I will miss.
Apparently full review never came out.
guess no one wants this phone.
Hello, when can we expect a full review of the Essential Phone? :D
I am curious about when the other two color options come out. I heard it's difficult to manufactur these colors. I am waiting for the gold/green variant.

I've seen people shoot high caliber rounds at titanium blocks without making a dent on it.
Maybe the puest form of titanium is brittle, but very much like gold, you could easily combine it with other elements to produce strong alloys or as in the case of the essential phone, reinforce the alloys further with plastic.
So, are we ever going to see a full review with the audio specs and battery tests and everything? Just curious :)
Wish to see a 5.2" compact version of this phone. It looks so beatiful and different than other phones. Maybe 18:9 ratio and 2160x1080 resolution will be perfect choice for who wants another phone than Sony Compact series.
Sorry, the ''facts'' mentioned about the hardness of titanium are not true. Pure titanium is soft, super ductil and can be scratched easliy. Titanium Grade 5 performce a bit better but is still soft compared to Gorilla glas...
adrain kereky, 30 Aug 2017essential didn't suprising me ...blahhhSpoken by another person on the www that was never going to buy the phone in the first place, it has never seen it or used it.

The PH-1's blacks are black not gray, the screen looks great, I have no regrets. I played this video on both phones at 50% brightness with adaptive brightness off. I preferred the PH-1 picture, the colors where lush and the skin tones looked natural. The camera takes nice pictures "and it's not all reviewers", certain reviews have done a piss poor job, it's understandable they know where their money comes from, Samlag and Apple. I used this camera app which has done wonders for the camera. Essential will eventually fix it, as it's software related, not hardware related.
What is the point of having a TITANIUM phone when batteries sucks!!!! Frankly, I rather get a cheaper phone with excellent battery.
It is the battery,,,dummy!

But that screen if subpar compared to other flagship (AMOLED, OLED, Apple's LCD) and the camera is currently stated as the worst one in flagship grade.
