If that is not enough, then you will be pleased to learn that this is one of the few phones that received the Android Pie update on day one. After Essential permanently cut the phone down to just $499, various retailers have been running their own promos here and there to make the phone even more affordable.

At a time where high-end flagship smartphones now seem to routinely cost $1,000, the chance of getting an excellent phone at a great price tends to be left to Chinese brands like Huawei and the like. Although fitted with an LCD panel, its edge-to-edge Quad HD display is one of the best in class. At this price no other phone comes even remotely close in terms of raw specfications.

You can find it here, the deal is specifically for the exclusive Halo Gray color without the 360 camera or headphones.

The Essential Phone might have been priced at an insanely low $250 for Amazon Prime Day, a price we never thought would be matched, but oh how quickly things can change.


We didn't think we'd see a better deal than that, but to our delight, we've been proven wrong.

Reviews of the Essential Phone since its launch have been mixed, however there is one thing that majority can agree on.

Whether you're shopping for a sub $300 phone, need a backup handset, or have been meaning to see what all the hype for the Essential Phone is about, now's the time to pull the trigger. There's a microSD card slot if you want to add more storage, and a 3040mAh battery powers the whole package.
