They killed it with no USB-C. All of my microUSB devices have broken charging ports after 1,5 year of use. Not to mention the huge inconvenience to plug it in the right way. Also nowadays you have a 256gig sd-card to hold your pictures. Downloading them to yiur PC via USB 2 is a half hour or more activity. There are more drawbacks, like charging your phone at your friends house or car. No one will have the old cable anymore. The world has moved on.
None of the photos show the screen to body ratio, that is, bezel size on every side. How convenient!
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2018The new trend ... Waterdrop notch. Does this mean that Essentioal was ahead of it's time? :))... moreI think we have already established that the Essential Phone design and build quality was ahead of its time. Seriously, ceramic plus titanium borders makes a build quality that rivals the stainless steel and glass of the iPhone X
Really VIVO? MicroUSB? Really? After all those specs you ran out of money for a proper USB port?
a notch is still a notch. no matter how small it is, it still not creative design to make every single smartphone looks same
The new trend ... Waterdrop notch. Does this mean that Essentioal was ahead of it's time? :))
Anyway it looks more better then normal notch. It would be better and more practucal without any king of notch but for now we have to settle with the waterdrop notcg.
I like the phone's specs, which are pretty good and checks all the basics.
FunTouch OS and the microUSB ports are questionable, but the others specs are pretty solid.
Dual Pixel Camera,
3.5 mm jack,
SD card slot,
128 GB storage with 6 GB RAM!
Gorgeous 6.4" AMOLED screen with only a waterdrop notch (Thank the stars that the notches are slowly vanishing).
I like both colour gradients, Starry Black and Nebula, but I prefer the latter.
BTW, isn't it cool that Nebula has the same colours as Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers Infinity War.
