Essential Phone re-review: Good software isn’t good enough for most of us

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

When it was first released, Essential's entry into the phone market was a bit of a flop. Reviews for the PH-1 weren't profoundly negative, but the phone's almost $700 price was humorously high considering its features and problems at the time. A bit over a year later, many of its early issues have been fixed or improved, the phone is one of just a handful to be updated to Android 9 Pie, and it's dropped down as cheap as $250 for Amazon Prime Day — though it's closer to $330 now.

Essential Phone finally gets support for YouTube zoom-to-fill

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Now that almost every major smartphone has a display with a ratio around 18:9, regular old 16:9 videos aren't looking too hot with their black bars. To combat this, YouTube added a helpful zoom-to-fill feature to its Android app, but that functionality only works on select, more mainstream devices. After months of waiting, Essential Phone owners are finally seeing it on their phones.

In case you're not familiar with the feature by chance, zoom-to-fill basically crops a bit off the tops and bottoms of 16:9 videos to eliminate black bars on phones with taller aspect ratios.

[Deal Alert] Essential Phone in Halo Gray down to $280 ($220 off) on Amazon

Sunday, August 19th, 2018

Aside from its incredible build and lightning-quick updates, I'd argue that the most interesting thing about the Essential Phone is how low its price dropped in such a short time; this once-$700 phone hit an all-time low of just $249.99 on Amazon last month for Prime Day. Today's deal on the Halo Gray Essential Phone can't quite beat that, but at $279.99, it comes close.

The Essential Phone comes with a 5.7" 1440p LCD, a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, dual 13MP rear cameras, an 8MP selfie-shooter, and a 3,040mAh battery.

8 of our favorite tech deals this week: Phones new and old (and also some accessories)

Sunday, August 5th, 2018

When you're following tech deals, you never quite know what you're going to get. Some weeks it feels like all you're seeing for sale are smart-home devices, or sometimes it's Bluetooth speaker after Bluetooth speaker. And while we really appreciate all those offers, they just can't quite compete with the allure of saving serious money on really big-ticket items — and in this scene, that means discounts on smartphones themselves. If that's what you're craving, we're happy to deliver, as this past week has been straight-up inundated with deals on some of the biggest smartphones around.

Essential drops latest Android P Developer Preview within minutes of Google

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

The only phone company faster to update its devices these days than Google is Essential. Although the company may be running up against rough times, it has consistently offered timely OTAs for security patches and Developer Previews. Like last month, the company is rolling out its own spin on the release candidate-ready DP5 (Beta 3, so far as Essential's numbering goes) a mere hour after Google.

Essential Phone likely to receive Android Q update… someday — frequent camera tweaks due in the short term

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Deemed just “essentially okay” by Ryan shortly after its launch, when it was still selling for $700, the Essential Phone was essentially a must-buy earlier this week, at a discounted price of $250. Bargain hunters who are only starting to get accustomed to the divisive Andy Rubin-created device may want to know the company answers questions every month on Reddit.

The latest AMA session didn’t exactly include any earth-shattering news or game-changing revelations, and there’s still a good chance a PH-2 will never be released.
