Seeing the specs the features, I don’t see how the essential phone better than the Galaxy S8 nor LG6 nor HTC11. It just a grab bag of ideas borrowed from other OEMs’, though with different implementations. For the price I don’t see reason why Andy Rubin decide to take away the headphone jack, also does not support for water and dust proof. Speaking of price the phone will cost $700 and may be release in a month time.

Generally the essential phone is a gorgeous phone with an awesome design, but I don’t think it will challenge the IPhone as other top manufacturers have tried and failed. But so far, since it a new phone we are yet to know about the OS experience. Which will be the biggest factor in terms of the phone and a chance for it to make a difference from already available flagship. Rubin also said in interviews that the Essential Phone will run a version of Nougat 7.1.1 that’s “pure as the driven snow, with no bloatware or customized interface,”
