User opinions and reviews

  • FangerZero

I ordered this phone the moment it was possible, and have loved it since owning it. Sure there are some things on it that could have been better, but considering it's 2.5 years old and still runs like new, it's damned good. The phone is a great size ...

  • JodyMitoma

There are used ones for only $85 on eBay, though! Amazing price: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Essential-128GB-Black-12­­8GB-Unlocked-Smartphone-C/184134392105?hash­=item­2adf43d929:g:DWcAAOSwvApaDRMP

That's why I'm not able to find any essential phones on ebay right now
