It’s not like the Essential Phone isn’t well spec’d. After all, it does feature a 5.7-inch edge-to-edge LCD display with a resolution of 1312 x 2560, and it is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. 4GB of RAM is inside and it comes with 128GB of native storage. And stock Android is pre-installed.
This deal is available from Best Buy only. If you must have the Essential Phone now, and you don’t qualify for the company’s own friends and family discount, this is a pretty solid deal. On the other hand, if you don’t mind waiting for the device, we should see the Essential Phone priced even lower in the near future.
