Is the new Essential phone really Essential?

It hasn’t been a while since we have seen a new phone appear in the market. Last month and the month before we had the two new phones the LG G6 and the Samsung S8 followed with the S8 Plus. We are anticipated for the next iPhone that will hopefully bring in lots of new features and raise the bars up for the next smartphones or possibly phablets to release on the markets. The day has finally come when the creator of Android aka Andy Rubin literally created a whole new remix of any phone you can possibly own and a whole new OS. We all know he would be releasing a new OS because he has all of the knowledge he needs in order to build a whole new OS platform only because he created one of the successful OS’s called Android.

After leaving Google he made his way into Venture Capitalism and later started Essential. This was recently and previously he announced that he would be releasing all sorts of competitors to the new products that have been releasing in the market such as the newly improved Google Home, Amazon Echo Show, Nikon’s new 360 Degree camera and you can go on and on. Andy Rubin wasn’t satisfied with the phones that ran his software platform Android and so he decided to create a brand new phone with much better features with a completely different OS called the Essential Phone. And that is why I am here to talk about the new awesome product.

Charging

USB-C is becoming the next big trend in charging and so there are rumors that Apple might actually start created phones with a USB-C port, not a lighting port. Kind of a bummer for those who don’t want to switch their phone because now if they lose their charger then they will have to either buy it separately or borrow from a friend. To make your charging Essential Andy added a feature where your phone needs to lie down and recharge at times. With their unique Click cordless connector, your phone can quickly recharge while always being at-the-ready for when you need it. This is because the phone has a magnetic charger at the back which allows it to charge. Right off the bat the phone I the first smartphone to be made of Titanium so now your phone is basically unbreakable but the phone has some sort of weak spot.

Design

There’s a reason titanium is used to build rockets and replace bones. Unlike aluminum, which is what most phones are made of, titanium doesn’t scratch, dent, or bend. That’s why you won’t find an area for phone cases on our site. A quote on the website states:

We believe Titanium is the perfect material to create one of an essential things in our lives – one we all sometimes drop.

This means that your phone will not scratch of bend if it falls from a decent height. I actually look forward to testing the height and scratch durability of this phone and to compare it with the other phones out in the vast market.

The top is the Essential Phone followed with the Samsung S8 followed by the iPhone 7.

At the back of the phone, you have your classic touch-ID just like you have on all Android Devices but you also have the two tone flash followed by with two 13MP Dual-Camera’s. I am personally happy they added this because Samsung and LG failed to fulfill this feature and we really wish this was there because it has been a while since Apple released their iPhone 7 Plus. But what really is interesting is that on the right of the camera’s are these two dots that are magnets. These are the things that will allow you to wireless charge. Because you have electric charges that are flowing throughout the Titanium (one of the reasons why they made it using Titanium). For $50 you can buy there new 360 Degree camera which will automatically connect to your phone. You will then be able to take a 360-degree video. Here is how it looks:

This video basically explains the whole point of the camera and it is only $50 which is completely worth it. In the front of the phone is a diagonal 5.7 ” screen that covers the entire front side except for this one portion which is for the camera. The camera features an 8MP 4K video camera.

The phone will go for $700 plus an additional $50 if you want the camera in the box. The phone will be available in 4 colors Black Moon, Stellar Grey (Available Soon), Pure White, and Ocean Depths (Available Soon). That is it we all have high hopes for the company and are looking forward to actually having one in the house. If you want to reserve it then Click Here.
