Amazon.com essential phone, in black moon for £415.10

40
Found 22nd Dec 2017
From amazon.com, it is $449 but as you proceed through checkout, it ends up being £415.50, I bought one of these last month and it was £515, so a massive £100 off in the space of a month, you'll have to select the standard delivery to receive phone on or around the 10th, but if you're willing to wait, then this is a bargain, and an excellent phone, with the latest updates. Security patch for December etc.

Me too.
Battery a lil on the weak side is it not?
Good storage from the get go but no expansion?
No headphone socket?

Prefer my U Ultra, limitations and all for £200 less.

Heat though for a new player to come to market.
Seem to be a good phone, but Essential VS Google, which one is better?

I haven't found any issues with battery life, and I'm quite a heavy user. who needs more than 128gb of storage anyway? Lol. You are provided with an USB c adapter for headphones. All for the same price as a u11 etc. I'd choose the essential any day.
What about good old Customs friends?
It definitely looks different, I would miss the headphone jack even with an adapter, i also like wireless charging and a good amount of water resistance.

Still it is a pretty cool phone.
you get hit customs 100% if purchase from amazon.

The £415 includes customs, and its just a deposit, so most likely you'll get some back.

beautiful. the phone that is.
Good deal, just need a UK plug. I would snap this up if you don't mind the below par camera
Hot. I have the phone and its great, and continues to get better with frequent updates. Android 8.0 update should be done by end of year (currently on beta 2). I imported it for £445 previously.
Why is this in the computers section?.. This a deal for the mobile section!..

Yeah they do, completely stock, I ordered this for £515 a month ago, and have just had an email telling me I'm due £100 back for the deposit I left with them, not bad!

Nope just a very obscure model that's not mainstream

Nope not mainstream at all. But I wouldn't say obscure. I was joking anyway, I don't literally think you were cryogenically frozen

I'm on virgin which works, can't speak for three 02 etc. Virgin, ee, Asda etc all run off ee network, so should be fine

4G works on Vodafone just fine. The radio within this is global and should cover all the UK networks as far as I'm aware.

I have used it and works on all networks, VOWIFI works with three UK, a rare thing
What's the deal with Amazon deposit. Do you get it all back if no customs ? Assuming amazon properly declares stuff so high chance of having it taken off ?

Google in a heartbeat. Although the Pixel 2 XL is quite more expensive than the PH-1 (Essential Phone)

The Pixel 2 XL beats the Essential in every way except price. So for the price, the Essential I'd very good. But against full priced flagships, it loses out - especially in camera

They have pure Android, with some extra Google Pixel features (NavBar Animations) and they currently have Beta 2 of Android Oreo.

They give fast Security Updates, and with a large roll-out just around the corner, they seem very good.

The only hold back is that they are only a new company and have sold very few, and are liable to collasping. Although the XDA community is there if this occurs

You can use an adapter... Or I just ordered an Aukey UK power adapter (PD) for £20 from Amazon (UK)

If you already have usb c chargers / cables and don't mind it charging super fast you could use them too. I don't though so wanted a charger
