Essential is offered a Essential Phone for $250 on Monday for Amazon Prime Day, that customarily sells for $500.
For $250, that’s a flattering good deal. That’s budget-to-mid-range smartphone pricing. we recently tested a mid-range $250 Moto G6 , that is a good smartphone for a price. But if we had a choice, I’d positively get a Essential Phone for a same price.
Keen smartphone enthusiasts out there might notice that you’re removing a high-end specs from 2017 with a Essential Phone, including a Snapdragon 835 processor. In 2018, many high-end inclination are using on a newer Snapdragon 845 chip.
But I’d opposite that by observant Google’s latest smartphones — a Pixel 2 smartphones that start during $650 — also come with a same Snapdragon 835, and they’re still among a best smartphones we can buy notwithstanding a other Android phones that run on a Snapdragon 845, like a Samsung Galaxy S9.
The Essential Phone’s camera wasn’t good perceived when it was initial launched, though a undergone several improvements over a lifetime. $250 will also get we ultra-premium pattern and materials, like titanium and ceramic. I’d disagree that a “ocean blue” Essential Phone is one of a best-looking smartphones we can buy.
Just note, however, that a sea blue indication isn’t partial of a Prime Day deals . Only a black, gray, and white models are accessible on Prime Day for $250.
The Phone also runs a purify and elementary chronicle of Android that’s tighten to batch Android. It’s not utterly what you’d find on Google’s Pixel devices, though it’s tighten — closer than what you’d find on phones from Samsung and LG. And a Essential Phone delivers a improved altogether Android knowledge for it.
