Essential Phone isn’t dead yet, picks up January update mere hour after Pixels

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Essential's January update to the PH-1 was a bit delayed compared to the company's usual standards. Instead of the typical near-simultaneous release, we had to wait just over an hour for the Essential Phone to get this months' patches. For fans of the house of Rubin, that's nearly an eternity.

Essential's monthly patches, as always, have the same non-Pixel-specific security fixes that Google's phones get. This month includes 27 of them, though only some will apply to the Essential Phone, and none stood out as particularly interesting this month — though obviously, they're still important.

The Essential Phone is officially discontinued, and a successor may be coming

Friday, December 28th, 2018

Earlier today, Droid Life remarked that the Essential Phone was now sold out on Amazon, speculating that this might be "the end" for the PH-1.  This was after the company's own storefront appeared to run out of stock last week and Best Buy's unlocked listing has the phone as "no longer available." Curious, we reached out to Essential for more info and were told the company "won't be adding any new inventory," while it focuses on its next mobile device.

Essential Audio Adapter HD review: High-end sound for the PH-1 won’t do jack to help Essential

Monday, December 10th, 2018

Essential's PH-1 was criticized at launch for some valid reasons, like a mediocre camera, high price tag, and lack of a headphone jack. But great software and a falling price have earned it a small but impassioned cult following. Now the high-end niche phone from 2017 has a high-end niche audio accessory to go with it: the Audio Adapter HD. But a single-device, $150 external DAC/amp might be a bit too niche.

Essential Phone OTA for December security patch rolling out

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Essential has a habit of beating even Google when it comes to rolling out updates, and that trend continues today. An OTA including the December security patches for Android is rolling out to PH-1's everywhere as we speak, download at your leisure.

The changelog is short and sweet this time, without hints of upcoming products or any other features. However, the security patch bulletin this month includes a honkin' chonk of Qualcomm related fixes, among other "critical" and "high" severity vulnerabilities.

Essential Cyber Monday bundle includes a phone, 360 camera, camera case, and Earphones HD for $329

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are as much a way to clear out old stock as they are about big door-buster deals. Shocker: Essential still has some phones to unload. We've seen this device go on mega-sale a few times, but the Cyber Monday bundle is still rather compelling. You can get the phone, 360 camera, and more for $329.

The bundle includes an Essential Phone, 360 camera, camera case, and Earphones HD.

Monday, November 5th, 2018

The cycle of monthly security updates continues. As expected, Essential has just pushed out its November patch OTA on the same day as Google. There is a twist this time around, though: Essential's changelog includes notes that reveal the Audio Adapter HD could be coming soon.

The company revealed the existence of the audio adapter all the way back in June, but since then it's been strangely silent on the subject.
