I was looking to pick your brain on a few things if you dont mind. I was looking to buy a new phone and im very attracted to the ph-1 however i have a few issues and since you seem like an expert on the phone id like your opinion. How bad is the camera really? Is the battery really as bad as they say it is? since youve been using it what would you say are its weak points?
Thanks for your time.

More than desirable ... people tend to buy by brand and then be fooled and after that, see what they buyed. But when you're not an established brand, even if the look is good, people usually look with four eyes if what they are buying is what they expect.

Obviously, as far as possible, they try to correct the design errors or the cuts they made in certain areas of the phone via software. But there are things that although you want to disguise ...

I may be wrong but at the moment the ratified sales are few. We will see in a few months how many phones they managed to sell.

Essential phone continues to be the most compact bezel less phone on the market.

We should commend/applaud their efforts, support, and communication.

Better than a badly skinned device, where you're hunting for rumours to see if you will get the next update.
