Oct2020,
compare specs. Many/Most new Phones don't have the CPU/MHz power as this 3 1/2 year old phone does.
-Screen has over 500 pixels per inch, most new one don't.
In 2017 this thing was from Star-Trek.
- How about the Titanium frame? bet you can't bend it...
Camera has had about 100+ plus updates (really) & captures amazing pictures, (fast too)
-Many -New Phones- come with Android 9 and will 'Never' update, the PH-1 = Android 10. ?What other phone started with Android 7 & went to 10?? ...& began life in 2017
-Does your Phone do Slo-Mo videos?? ,this did 3.5 years ago.
Truly, As-New examples are $150+/- , or spend $300 $600++ for a lesser specs phone, your choice...
Will be running strong for another 4++ years.

I bought 2 Essential PH-1's and on both the charging/audio (USB-C to 3.5mm) failed within 6 months. Purchased off Amazon so Essential said they would not honor the warranty. I cannot recommend.

The best phone I have owned. Believe the hype. This phone is like fine wine. After 3 years and all those upgrades, it still feels like a new phone.

A unique phone with amazing specs in this price.

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 and has a good weight to it. The finger sensor on the back responds quickly. The only complaint I have is that the company went under, so I no longer get my monthly updates same day they come out. I guess people would rather buy garbage every year, Samsung, than high quality products. Now that manufacturers are looking at doing High Mid-Tier CPUs it's even more sad. I probably won't be upgrading until 2021 or later. The Snapdragon 835 is in the same class as the the 765g that manufacturers are looking at using in 2020.
