The Essential phone is one of the most exciting developments in smartphones for 2017 / 2018. Essential is a new brand in the Android space but it's headed by individuals very familiar with Android. In fact without Essential's founder Andy Rubin, Android might not even exist. The Essential phone packs a clean "stock" type of Android interface similar to the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. The Essential Phone also includes a unique, modular accessory capability. Through a magnetic point on the back of the phone one is able to clip accessories including the new 360 camera for Essential phone. The Essential Phone is the first I've ever handled that's made of titanium and ceramic. Essential claims that the titanium structure makes the Essential Phone more durable if you're to drop it. I won't be doing a drop test on my channel (I like the Essential phone too much) but according to Essential's website, when compared to other leading devices (made mostly of aluminum) the Essential fared better when dropped on concrete. The front of the Essential Phone is covered in Gorilla Glass 5, it's got dual 13 megapixel cameras on the back and an 8 megapixel camera on the front (capable of 4K video recording). It's also packing the Snapdragon 835 and 128GB of storage standard. The dual lens system on the Essential phone is different than the system on the iPhone 7 Plus. Rather than going for an extra zoom lens Essential decided to use the dual camera system to enable better low light photos / video and high contrast monochrome photos as well. The Essential phone is also one of the highest screen-to-body ratio devices I've ever looked at (if not the highest) it's got a 5.7 inch QHD display at 2560 x 1312. The battery is 3040mAh battery and supports quick charge via the 27 watt power brick that ships with the phone. Essential claims quick charge potential of up to 5 hours battery life in just 5 minutes of charging. There is currently a pre-order option to order the Essential Phone along with the 360 camera attachment as a kit. The Essential phone is available in four different color combinations including Black Moon (featured here), and Pure White. Stellar Grey and Ocean Depths color combos will be available soon. Another key feature of the Essential Phone is the fact that it includes no branding at all. In fact the device has no visible text on the body... Anywhere! It's actually kind of shocking at first glance as one is conditioned to expect some level of branding. Not so with the Essential Phone, minimalists rejoice!

SO LeW, I watched this video the first time you put it out, and I've come back to this to say can you have a word with Telus, this looks like a great phone and where's the love for the UK. ? ! I mean I've got good English pound notes to spend with the Queen's head them. . We Brit's expect coming out of the EU a good trade deal with Canada,. 😉
Tested it out at the store the other day, with the updated camera software, and it worked like a charm. Auto-focus was quick, no lag or wait time. At $460 CAD, and the 360 camera only $50, this phone is getting harder and harder to ignore. And now that the only retailer in Canada having it on end-of-life status, I'm seriously considering picking one up before they're all gone, despite my Galaxy S7 still working fine. But with no confirmed date for 8.0 (nevermind 8.1) on the S7, I don't know how much longer I want to wait.
I'd wait till they come out with expandable storage and if they upgrade the sound/speakers, yes it would be cool if they added stereo sound as the ZTE Axon7 phone which has the speakers on the front top and bottom but great Unboxing presentation though 👌
Essential phone may be as ok as you say, but speaking from experience, if you have any issues with their software, Essential says it is the fault of the network for not "keeping up". POS phone made by a POS company.
I've been using this phone for about three months and I'm not at all impressed. It constantly LAAAAAGGGGSSSSSS. I do however love the body and structure of the phone it feels great to hold. But it's so damn slowwwwww... I don't understand why! It's not like I've downloaded a million apps. Then there's the lock/power button that is beyond sensitive. You can almost lock this phone by blowing on the lock/power button. The screen is very nice I'll give it that. Maybe the next version will be better. This is there first phone so obviously there was going to be flaws.
I like your style!!! I've only listened to a couple of your reviews but you seem to give a lot of the negatives instead of just the positives. I hope I am right about you because I am in desperate need of a high end phone US made but under $200 - maybe $250 at the very highest. I know most would call me rediculous but you get nothing if you don't ask. That's my rule that I live by so I'm asking if you can recommend me something. the last two I've brought have been awful. Again, I can't afford the high priced phones. Anything you can do will be so much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Hey b****... I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8... And they think when I got it... It was about... $600... Then I bought a Samsung S8 the phone... The phone has better camera quality but... My tablet way better sound
I watch all you videos about all the smart phones that you judge on what is the best choice and i take it all into consideration. How ever you never talk about the HTC cell phones, where do you rank them?
Once they dropped the price and fix some of their software issues with the camera app. I bought the phone after my S8 plus broke and I got to say this phone is so much faster stock Android is so much better than TouchWiz.
