Those of you still looking for an awesome deal now that the holiday season is over, you might want to jump on this latest deal for the Essential Phone. Currently, the device is being offered for just $434.99 with free Prime shipping and you can get the device in either Black Moon or Pure White.
For those of you that love a bundle, you can still pick up the PH-1 and the Essential 360 Camera for a combined price of $540 with free Prime shipping. However, if you don’t feel like messing with the new 360-degree camera module, you can check out Essential’s new lineup of accessories which was recently announced.
The Essential Phone likely won’t be the first option to roll off the tongue when asked about best devices of the year, but it could just be one of the best options at the sub-$500 price point. This comes after the company lowered the price to $499 back in October after the company was struggling to sell devices at the $699 price point.
As a reminder, the PH-1 features a 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1312 and that awkward resolution is thanks to the small notch that is found at the top, which houses the selfie camera. Powering the device is the Snapdragon 835 chipset, which has been coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Perhaps the biggest complaint surrounding the PH-1 has been its camera system, which boasts a 13MP primary sensor and a secondary 13MP Monochrome sensor. While image quality has been hit or miss since the beginning, Essential has released a slew of updates that have markedly improved the camera quality. But if you don’t like what Essential has been doing, you can always install the ported Google Camera APK to get a little bit better performance.
