Essential Phone: A New Android Phone That Could Take Over Apple’s iPhones

Essential Phone

Essential Phone (PH-1), which is a long awaited and super fascinating phone is finally here. If you are one of those who pre-ordered the phone, then you should be expecting to get your hands on it very soon in the next few days. The Essential Phone PH-1 has a full edge-to-edge display and classy design. It is the same design that Apple is expected to follow for their upcoming iPhone.

The latest Processor.

People in the smartphone market, be it the designers, developers or the audience are already comparing the Essential Phone PH-1 with the iPhone 7 Plus, which has very similar design elements. The Essential Phone makes use of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It is coupled with 4GB of RAM. the company also revealed that the phone would support add-on accessories that attach to the phone’s back via magnetic points.

Made Up Of Aluminium.

Most phones are made up of aluminium. But the Essential PH-1 is made up of titanium, which doesn’t scratch, dent or bend. Titanium is harder, stronger, and more resilient than aluminium. At Essential, they believe titanium is the perfect material to create one of the most essential things in our lives, which we all drop from time to time.

Impeccably Crafted With New Processes.

Craftsmanship is an impalpable quality that you sense when they pick up a product for the first time. If you hold a poorly crafted product, you can feel the haste in which it was rushed through the R&D process. This abstract notion is impossible to hide. It just doesn’t feel right. To get a true, crafted feel, Essential selected unusual materials: titanium and ceramic. Each offers its own challenges. Their task was developing new processes to get them right. But the end result is definitely worth it.

A large Screen.

The Essential Phone is a large-screen device that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Essential Phone has put some amazing efforts into developing one of the world’s best phone cameras. It resulted into the world’s thinnest dual camera system built for a phone. The phone makes use of both color and monochrome sensors. It can capture 200% more light than traditional phone cameras. The front-facing camera captures 8MP pictures and 4K video. The camera doesn’t feature some of the dual-sensor features found on the iPhone, like Portrait Mode or HDR.

Battery Life.

The Essential PH-1 offers a 3,040mAh battery. the device has a much higher-resolution display, which means that it will be much more taxing on the battery. The Essential Phone offers fast-charging. Essential offers a pure Android experience, similar to what you will find on the Google Pixel. It’s free of bloatware, unlike some Android devices.

Runs On Android.

The Essential Phone will get Android updates for two years. The Essential Phone has great specs and it looks brilliant. The Essential Phone will likely cost less than the Google Pixel 2 (and it ships with 128GB of storage as standard). Google has also confirmed, now that Android Oreo is official, that it has been working closely with a number of its partners, including Essential, to get Android Oreo out to handsets before the close of 2017.

Final Word.

The Essential Phone is also pretty unique-looking. It’s not an iPhone clone, it strives to be different. It’s unique both in its outer aesthetics and how it works. You get the impression that everything has been checked, checked, and then checked again. There is no headphone jack, the fingerprint scanner is on the back, and while the camera was apparently a bit unstable at first. A new update from Essential has fixed most of the problems. Though there is a rumor that it’s not quite as good as the Google Pixel’s setup.

The Essential Phone PH-1 comes in four different colors: Black Moon, Pure White, Stellar Grey and Ocean Depths. The device cost $700, which is a premium price to pay for a phone.
