The 3.5mm jack has been around for almost 150 years!!!!! For those that say that it is getting old then so is the American flag, so do you want to get rid of it now?

Thanks for the video. Think i got the smart phone steal of cyber monday
Patrick Ross (5 months ago)
Ordered. Had to cancel 1st order to use the right card for my taxes. Right it off for my trading work.
shawn 15oth (5 months ago)
Patrick Ross yes i saw that on the Cyber Monday Deal. that is a $200 dollars savings. If you want a clean Android phone, then this is it.
Patrick Ross (5 months ago)
shawn 15oth 400 dollars for 360 camera and phone on Amazon. Should I buy?

No headphone jack, no buy. No thanks!
Waces Ferpit (6 months ago)
really just disliked the lack of the headphone jack
Waylander (6 months ago)
For me this phone is perfect. Great display and super fast. I only use bt headphones and even after installing my music and all the apps I usually have I still have 92gb leftover. And I only payed $449.00 at Best Buy for the unlocked version.
Franco Shinzato (6 months ago)
Only issue with this phone is that is on sprint.

I would buy the phone this second if it had a headphone jack.

Horrible buy. Breaks easy. Customer support is terrible. Need special cords.
Brian (7 months ago)
What's so essential about a phone missing essential features?
Steve Bergman (7 months ago)
All in all, a mediocre and unexciting phone. No 3.5mm jack. No SD Card capability. Only 4GB RAM. Screen to body ratio not significantly better than the S8+. Sub-QHD display resolution. Only 5.7" diagonal on a 19:10 aspect ratio display. Not IP67 or IP68 water resistant. Only 3040 mAh capacity on the battery. (We'll see how that pans out.) Introduction of yet another proprietary expansion port, which reminds me very much of desktop computers in the late 1970s. No wireless charging. After all the hype, pretty much a big nothing. I'm certainly not regretting my decision to go with another brand of phone.
Medevenx (7 months ago)
Sacrifice the top bezel but still have a bottom bezel. What a waste!
gaster (7 months ago)
Built quality and design are great imo. OS as well smooth. But too expensive for an upcoming company that wants to achieve customers. Nice video buds
cos cos bobo (7 months ago)
who cares if the body is titanium .if the phone in most cases fals flat on the screen
Your wise cousin Joe (7 months ago)
Absolutely crap phone of the year....Wait, second to iPhones.
Cult (7 months ago)
Headphone jack, oled display and maybe waterproofing and i would throw my money at them. Currently im not sure.
Yort Thin (7 months ago)
how much?
Peter Ford (7 months ago)
Would be nice to have a phone that charges through a magnetic clip on charger. Less worry about a charge port waring out. Of course the magnetic type may ware, power wise,, then always falling off. Hmm, guess there's no easy fix.
Adam Vagus (8 months ago)
I'm gonna be following this phone and company to see what the future holds for them. Seems like they have great potential to shake things up.
Mike Lechner (8 months ago)
This is the first iteration of this phone. I am sure that with each new build some of the "essential" features that people want on/in this phone will be included. Upgrades will enhance and improve the cameras, and things like water and dust resistance will be increased and improved upon in time. Andy Rubin is a forward thinking person. Let's give him a chance to succeed with his new company.
Manpet Epetrop (8 months ago)
No Headphone jack and no Radio, no ir blaster no card slot, no... way or no thanx ? Ps: super expensive for the lack of bells and whistles, i' ll stick to my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 anyway...
Joshua Tavares (5 months ago)
Manpet Epetrop I've never used more than 128 GB. Not everyone needs radio. I've never used IR I'm looking at this phone because of the nice build quality and purest form of android. Most phones are moving to no headphone jack. And IPA rating doesn't matter to me because I don't use my phone near water. I guess this phone is for a niche market but I think it has a gorgeous look to it

This phone is around $700... Which I believe is going to be their mistake. With other high-end/name-brand flagship devices near that price... It only makes sense to go with your gut an follow the safest route. Maybe if this was about $200 cheaper, more would consider this and give it a chance.
fife007 (8 months ago)
so what's so essential about this phone?
AjeroZ (8 months ago)
I will never buy a phone without a headphone jack. Even tho some of my headphones are wireless.
charles owens (8 months ago)
Question please. have you noticed the dot matrix(which is what I think they call it) with the screen. My unit is noticeable a lot more than I would expect. Also have you been able to watch YouTube or anything else above a 1080p resolution? I only have 1080p as a choice for YouTube nothing higher

When you are so dead set on copying others, even a flaw. #ripHeadphoneJack

Anh Kiet Nguyen (8 months ago)
Of course No headphone jack No place to put an SD card Why it just like iPhone 7 I will buy Samsung note 8 instead (because gamer)
Mark Bailey (8 months ago)
All I want to know is, is the camera any good when taking pictures of small moving objects? - e.g. cats and children I feel we've hit a bit of a plateau with quality, but speed of taking photos (That aren't a blurry mess) are what I need - and have wanted for the last 5 years - but every upgrade comes a slightly better experience but no where near what I'd like...
Suresh Steven (8 months ago)
the exorbitant price.. not so essential
NC Aråb (8 months ago)
If yall are going to get rid of headphone jacks at least have a solution like improving fast charging so i can use an adapter on full battery
Mr Sluggo (8 months ago)
You lost me at NO HEADPHONE JACK....PASS!!!!
redskitter (8 months ago)

Hector Salamanca (8 months ago)
Lol this is potentially the most retarded phone ive ever seen, no bezel at the top but soft buttons and a bezel at the bottom hahahaha
The Lone Volf (8 months ago)
Damn i wish i could test new phones like these
Darek Markiewicz (8 months ago)
ALL youtube reviewers drop their phones in first couple of days using them. ALWAYS.
Archie (8 months ago)
The video is not about after 72 hrs of usage. This should be an experience review not unboxing.
Raphaex ™ (8 months ago)
Great review mate, can you answer me one question? Does this device support long press on apps?
David Schwartz (8 months ago)
Fingerprint scanners on the back are stupid! Put it on the front so you can use the phone on a table without picking it up first.
Enki Merlin (8 months ago)
off topic but whats the song at the start?
Weazell (8 months ago)
I'm really happy to see another barely modded Android phone, buuuut I'll wait for the pixel 2

Haha heck no 700$
John (8 months ago)
Applying too much brains to develop a product and you get an "essential" which has removed everything essential. Next you should remove the Battery, it will make the phone paper thin and paper light 🙂
Tarquin Farquhar (8 months ago)
Oh man. All these people trolling about the headphone jack on every review of the Essential. You get an adapter with the phone. What's the problem? Quit crying you pansies!

Papa McCheese (8 months ago)
Tech is always changing.. Why do people keep holding on to the headphone jack.. It's "THE" oldest tech on the phone.. its over 100 years old.. "Bluetooth is Awesome".. I guess, "To each his own"..
Abdulai Bah (8 months ago)
Why only Sprint?
Christopher Thomas (8 months ago)
Cant find any cases for this phone!!! Whats up with that? If I don't find one soon I'll be getting the Note 8.

you guys gotta step it up and start uploading videos at the very least 1440p.

Put this next to a Mid-range China phone and it starts to look way overpriced
X Diag (8 months ago)
Whatever people say, this phone is good. The most interesting thing is implementation of fron camera and screen around it. It look premium, and the best thing is that is not branded. When people who are not gadget freaks will see this phone, I bet they will say: Wooow, what a phone. What is it? And you can make a cool face and say: I don't know, it doesn't say :) Too bad is pricey for me.

Pretty useless !!
Ilya Elis (8 months ago)
How can you charge a phone and have headphones plugged in at the same time? I often listen to news in bed before going to sleep with one earbud, and obviously charger is also plugged in. So how do I do this without headphone jack?
Nahid Hasan (8 months ago)
Awesome Smartphone.

Hi, i have a question. Do the essential phone support google daydream?

BETIKU Adedoyin (8 months ago)
I loooooooove the way u slapped the fidget spinner away at the intro, i laughed so much
eurosonly (8 months ago)
It's an essential phone which lacks a head phone jack but they throw in a bunch of useless camera optics that no one will ever use? Dafuq
snipes503 (8 months ago)
I know a lot of people still need a headphone jack and thats fine. But now that ive got a couple pairs of wireless head phones i dont care any more. Wireless earbuds themeselves are getting cheaper and the quality aint to bad.
Kelloggs H (8 months ago)
Why why what's wrong with the old headphone jack
rc00111011 (8 months ago)
Well it fails, like others, because it has no headphone jack. No headphone jack means it cannot be charged while listening to music. It is a gigantic fail to not understand this. It doesn't just mean I can't listen to music while it's charging it also means I cannot use my headset for calls unless I spring for a wireless one that is just another thing I have to charge. Andy, YOU FAILED.

"Essential" Yet it's not water-proof The irony
Brian Slack (8 months ago)
I swear all these review videos look the same now. Mkbhd/verge/mr mobile/ this one
I clicked like as soon as the fidget spinner got hit off the table...
MightiestArm (8 months ago)
this would have been a great phone if they put a headphone jack, pass
superbanamana (8 months ago)
You don't need a headphone jack just use usb-c and 128gb is enough

How do you build a phone with no headphone jack or sd slot and still not add waterproofing?
Gould (8 months ago)
I thought it was the iphone for a sec
Adam K (8 months ago)
I'd rather have them lose the front facing camera and put a standard 3.5 jack on the phone.
lass1234 (8 months ago)
Did you try making a call with the phone? There is no speaker on the top so does it work the same as the Mi Mix thru vibration ? That also means everyone in a quiet room will hear your conversation. Very awkward moment.
CaptainPC (8 months ago)
It has a thin slit on the top for the speaker.
Deep Banerjee (8 months ago)
Lenovo p2 is faar more essential
Dendy Priambodo (8 months ago)
I can't see anything essential on this since some other smartphones do better. I feel like being told what's supposed to be essential which is way further from my own preferences. Made by Founding Father of Android doesn't mean it can easily beat Samsung Galaxy, Pixel, iPhone, or even chinese smartphones. Let's see how good it does in real life experience.
Shubh Bhushan (8 months ago)
iPhone-ish phone with android... Really Andy Rubin has done something different
Shubh Bhushan (8 months ago)
The intro was amaaaaaaazzzzing. The way he throws the fidget spinner and put the phone on the table. It is ROFL
