Essential Phone Hands-On: A New Premium Smartphone? (Video)

Welp, it’s here. Andy Rubin, the founder of Android before he sold it to Google, and his team at Essential have finally brought the new Essential phone (technically called the PH-1) to market.

And when I say finally, I mean 18 months after the founding of the company, which is sort of impressive.

Check out my hands-on video from the Essential Phone event and let me know what you think.

The device is available now although I’m still waiting for my pre-order to arrive costs $699 for the only storage option of 128GBs.

And there you go, quick rundown of the new Essential phone. Had a limited time with it and would love to do a review if you guys want me to once it arrives–let me know in the comments if you’d want one and what you think of the phone. Follow me on social to chat and, as always, thanks for reading.
