bug, 14 Mar 2018Really? It costs an arm and a leg and it still takes 3 months to provide a minor update? How about I give Andy Rubin your leg and arm for an Essential Phone ? You won't care right? ;-) .
bug, 14 Mar 2018Really? It costs an arm and a leg and it still takes 3 months to provide a minor update?It costs $460 CDN, and received 8.1 before most major players. With waterproofing and a headphone jack I would buy it in a heartbeat.
hari, 14 Mar 2018you can enable it.... go to settings>apps & notifications> notifications> toggle ... moreThanks for help. I didn't think it will be disabled after update. But I think there is bug while sending messenger message via notification bar, after replying a message from notification bar in home screen the screen goes to traditional form, ie, just like phone with bezel ( screen/wallpaper gets cut to size of phone with benzel) and sometimes gets hang for few seconds, I don't know if it's bug with Oreo or messenger itself. Any thought?

Vasra, 14 Mar 2018Who cares. Essential sold less phones tham Xiaomi sold one model. For the market share, Essent... moreFlooding the market with 'different' models, that are actually 99% as the other phones on the market, only to hope that your flood will be bigger than the other companies' floods is a good thing? Forgetting about supporting the phone the minute the phone is launched, since the bulk of the team already moves to developing a new phone, is a good thing? Making factories turn mountains of natural resources into waste with a time delay given by the products' warranty period is a good thing? When our grandchildren will go to see the great mountains of waste made by discontinued electronics, that will replace the mountains of today, we'll have to thank the companies that once had the biggest market share, and flooded the market and our planet with their products with the greatest success.
And being a company that puts all its energy into making and supporting a single phone is a bad thing...
Who cares. Essential sold less phones tham Xiaomi sold one model. For the market share, Essential gets way too much coverage. Do you know anyone who uses an essential phone?

Nice, it showed up for me, I will install it tonight. Pretty happy with essentials support so far. I've had very few problems with my phone and the experience keeps getting better.

I read Oreo beta was killing the battery life on the Essential. I hope that is not the case.
if essential phone 2.0 will come up i will sure consider this brand...they are committed to give the best and latest software to their clients. Hardware is already top of the food chain. I hope they will open the market and sell in Europe also.
