Andy Rubin, co-founder of Danger and Android, introduces a new phone, often called “Essential phone”, after leaving Google.
|| Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835
|| 128GB, no microSD slot
||LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
1312 x 2560 pixels (~504 ppi pixel density)
Corning Gorilla Glass 5
||Primary: Dual 13 MP, f/1.9
Secondary: 8 MP, f/2.2
|| Stellar Gray, Ocean Depths, Black Moon, Pure White
The main advantages of this device are the screen. It has 5.71-inch size, 1312 x 2560 pixels resolution and the screen-to-body ratio is 84.9%, almost similar to Samsung Galaxy Note8! It supports up to 10 fingers at the same time and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Octa-core processor, Snapdragon chipset 835 and 4GB of RAM are there to assist you with any issue you may have. All of this is powered by a battery of 3040mAh. Other things we should add are the cameras. There are two, 3MP units at the back. The front camera is 8MP, just to add.
An interesting addition is a frame. It is made from titanium but still, doesn’t affect the price of the device. It feels strong and durable. We should add that this unit isn’t resistant to water or dust.
This smartphone doesn’t have 3.5mm jack, which is the biggest issue here. Then we have the rear camera. For a smartphone of this caliber, a better camera is preferable. The only option you have with the memory is 128GB and there is no memory slot, which we mentioned.
The display will require some time to get used to it. Yes, it is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, but it at the top it has an element where is a camera, so display goes all around it.
According to IFIXIT, it is hard to repair the phone’s hardware. They gave it 1/10 for Repairability Score, which is the lowest.
