Essential’s Jan refurbish to a PH-1 was a bit behind compared to a company’s common standards. Instead of a standard near-simultaneous release, we had to wait just over an hour for a Essential Phone to get this months’ patches. For fans of a residence of Rubin, that’s scarcely an eternity.
Essential’s monthly patches, as always, have a same non-Pixel-specific confidence fixes that Google’s phones get. This month includes 27 of them, yet usually some will request to a Essential Phone, and nothing stood out as quite engaging this month — yet obviously, they’re still important.
Essential doesn’t seem to have piled on any of a possess specific changes this month either. The usually approach we can tell when they do is around a enclosed changelog, yet January’s is unclothed save a confidence patches.
If we were endangered that a discontinuation of a Essential Phone could have a disastrous impact on a refurbish recover schedule, such fears seem to be ungrounded — yet who knows? That hour-long check could presumably amass to a full day of loiter subsequent year. That could eventually meant a twenty-four-hour wait before PH-1 owners can massage it in Samsung and LG fanboy faces.
