Where i am i have local support for it too ;)
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2017True. Except the OnePlus 5 has a headphone jack, better cameras, more RAM and better performan... moreTested the 5T against the essential using google pixel camera app 1.41 on both.
Essential gave better result.
using built in camera app the 5T win.
Essential also much more solid for the build and has better battery life and charge faster han the 5T ( real life test )
So i take the one with will get update faster and be more durable with better support ( as i only have to drop it to a carrier store for warranty )
KMB877, 27 Nov 2017May I suggest to take a look to ZTE Axon 7 (was below $350 over the week-end).US$350 ???
That's an okay price, but I've seen it priced around that in regular times now.
In the sale period, the ZTE Axon 7 was selling for US$250. Now that's a bargain!
Too bad I didn't have these prices when I needed to upgrade from my Nexus 5X, but I instead managed to get an LG G6 around 6 Months ago for US$350 which was a great price.
Between a G6 for US$350 and a ZTE 7 for US$250... the Axon 7 is clearly the better value.
Xiaomi Mi6 and Sony XZ1 compact both cheaper with SD835 :P but it's the cheapest with this kind of screen for sure. Worth a purchase now.
Your suggestion is weak. I got the Axon 7 last year from Newegg bundled with headphones and a decent coffee maker. Oh, and I paid $315 in total.

yes but the mi 6 does not included a 360 camera for that price,also imports always cost more then the original price
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2017Not the cheapest. We have the Xiaomi Mi6 under $400.Without any warranty or service.. doesn't count sending it nsck to China and getting it back 2 months later

-One Plus 5T
If you are coming from an iPhone I don't recommend you to upgrade to any of them. Buy an Android that supports Project Treble out of the box (Xiaomi Mi7, One Plus 6), then you can install a clean version of Android and always have the latest updates and support. Go with Xiaomi if you prefer an iOS look and with One Plus if you prefer stock Android. I recommend One Plus, but Xiaomi will buy you more for the same money.
If only they would sell it for this price in Europe. Sadly amazon wont ship it to Europe either...

Activate camera api 2 (HAL3) and install Google Camera HDR+. There are plenty of guides on the internet.

And I am disappointed with it's camera. Lumia was much better. Old expensive phones tend to have better camera than new cheap phones. S check that camera quality.
Launch this phone in In India.We don't have mi6 here and if launched it would be the cheapest snapdragon 835 phone in India, and I would buy this by its looks alone, for that price in India.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2017Not the cheapest. We have the Xiaomi Mi6 under $400.I think Mi6 in Us is imported and not locally available.

Dont have any OnePlus customer service in my country, so it has no support. Im pretty statisfied. As i dont need to overpay for my phone. If anything goes wrong its very easy to order parts and do a fix by yourself, as its easy to reassembly the phone. Screen is not sticked to body, it holds only 2 screws lol.
RaZa, 27 Nov 2017Pretty obvious that The Essential phone is a flop.I guess you can say it is...Essentially a flop.
But I'm not sure where this company would be 6 months down the line!
Similar things have happened in the past where a new company has launched a good product (Robin), and where are they now? Warranty, Updates, all are at risk.
AND... OnePlus 5 has AMOLED screen, guaranteed updates for 2 years(debatable), headphone jack ( a must, no excuses)
