    I'm switching over to the Essential phone for now. If you've never held a ceramic/titanium phone in your hand, you need to try it. Get to a store that carries this thing and test it out. A ceramic back, bonded to a titanium frame feels awesome and is incredibly strong. Thanks for watching my stuff!

  2. Hello Dave from 2017. I am from 2020. I am just here to let you know that Essential company is DEAD.
    Thank you.

    Immediately after the announcement of Essential closing shop, I opted to buy an iPhone 11. This was a great phone but without the reassurance of updates and security, I cannot keep it as my daily driver. Why I went iPhone? Privacy and longevity. Sony stopped supporting my phones quickly, Samsung loves bloatware, Microsoft burned me with the 950xl…so there. The iPhone 11 will be my first iPhone, but certainly not my first iOS device.

    Essential Phone – A $700 minimalist phone for people who's interested in buying one.
