This is a brilliant bit of kit.

$399 works out at £353 including deposits covering tax and customs.

The price you see at checkout, is the price you pay with amazon.

Some users will get some of the deposit back, making this even cheaper.
I've had a go of one of these,
and i was genuinely really impressed

Was planning to buy this around a few weeks ago. Contacted Amazon US re the warranty, they said it would be Essential. Essential said if something goes wrong one needs to send it to them directly but they said if i am outside US, the warranty will not apply as the device only has US warranty. Spoke with two Amazon CS at that time

Not buying, but interested to know who your warranty would be with?

It might be easier to unexpire/edit a previous deal than to post a new deal each time


But if I did that it wouldn't get the recognition it do rightfully deserves!
Pretty good all round phone, I got it in early December. I recommend watching that review if you still hesitate:
Have the white one and it's still a headturner
Expired, it's $600+ now.
Amazing phone for the price. The camera isn’t that good but everything else is excellent. Plus Essential regularly push updates. Can’t say the same for companies charging twice the price.

99% of the time you get some of the deposit back, making this even cheaper.



I have ordered a load of stuff from Amazon US and your statement is not true. I have never had deposit fee or in fact a partial amount back from Amazon

Should have read the title, didn't notice it was colour specific, sorry!
The black moon version is $399.99 as well. If it had a warranty I would be all over this.

I did on this exact handset. Around £30 if I remember correctly, so my statement is true. Why would I lie?
Oh yes I know, to get more money in to that little known company called AMAZON derr me......
ever officially released in the uk?
Seems like great hardware crippled by poor software implementation. Going by the piece below I wouldn't take a punt even at the reduced price, unless there are custom Roms that fix the multiple issues the author describes; androidcentral.com/ess…ths
Which came first, this or the Sharp Aquos S2?

So from getting a partial refund once you equate that 99% of the time you get money back from Amazon. Great Logic!

I'm just telling people what happened to me, now why don't you post one of these many things you've bought off amazon, and then explain to people that there is no possible way of getting any kind of DEPOSIT back...
I'm sure that will go down well, and be great logic.

So you base your 99% on 1 refund. You did not even state that as a one off you received a refund or stipulate that it was for this phone.

The statment is totally misleading and I am pointing it out so that people who buy this item do not expect that they will receive a refund back from Amazon.

To your last statement about posting a deal with the fact that obtaining your deposit back is slim to none would go down well as I would be TELLING THE TRUTH! and not misleading people which obviously the initial post does.

Anyway stop crying about this, just change your OP so not to mislead people.

For that amount of money, I'd expect the camera to be very good !
Stick to Xiaomi phones at this price. Much better than this rubbish
just read this on androidcentral

"The Essential Phone is handily outperformed by a Moto G5, and that's just unacceptable — at $699, for sure, but at $499 as well.

Four or five years ago, Android phones were slow and unstable like this. But not today.It all starts with just general app instability. Apps crash — a lot. More than I've experienced on any other phone. They freeze, stutter, lock up and force close. Sometimes you tap an app to open it, and nothing happens for multiple seconds. When an app calls up another one through a share action, it takes the same egregious delay. Sometimes apps open and switch just fine, but then randomly slow down to a crawl with inordinately long splash screens or loading animations. And it isn't tied to just one app, it's all apps."

I wonder if all these problems have been fixed , if not with no warranty outsdied US why would anyone buy this
Slow, buggy software, bad camera (for the price, AWFUL camera), no memory card slot, and no headphone jack.

No SD slot and no headphone jack instantly disqualify it. I wouldn't use it even if I got it free, I'd just sell it to some chump and buy a phone that actually has these basic features.

Sharp did a bezel less screen years ago with the original aquos! Then recently it's suddenly a thing! They must be upset no one really noticed at the time!

Where did you get the info that the software is slow and buggy? This doesn't match anything I've read about the phone.

Also why be so flippant about people who don't care about the features you mentioned? No reason to describe people who don't need a headphone jack or SD slot as a 'chump'. Very judgemental. This phone has 128GB of storage so most people legitimately wouldn't need a card slot, and a lot of people (certainly on my commute) seem to use Bluetooth headphones these days. There's a decent quality dongle/DAC included in the box for occasions where it might be desired.

Fair enough, some people still really like a headphone jack - me included - but those who don't care are hardly chumps.

Really tempted by this.

If you use a travel card such as Revolut and pay in USD, It brings to cost down to a better exchange rate. Currently £337.

If you read the androidcentral link posted twice in the thread already you'll see plenty of evidence of slow and buggy software described (And this is after multiple patches). I don't disagree with any of the rest of your points though. Some people seem to get quite worked up on here
