The Essential Phone, which proved to be a polarizing device, is out of stock on the official website and in most retail outlets. Moreover, the company has no plans to restock it, as it is concentrating all its efforts on a new product that would most likely be an artificial intelligence-powered device that may, or not be a smartphone. However, do not despair, as you can still get the Essential PH-1, thanks to Sprint.
Get the Essential Phone While You Still Can at an Unbelievably Low Price
Despite being a pretty good phone overall, the Essential Phone received a tepid response from the market, largely because its launch price of $700 wasn’t really justifiable. The device received numerous price cuts, and perhaps that explains why it was sold out over the holiday season. Although you can still buy the phone via third-party Amazon sellers, they are charging $430 for a unit, which is not all that cheap. Thankfully, Sprint has come up with a good deal on the Essential Phone.
Instead of paying $18.75 a month, which translates into $450 over a 24-month period, you can now get the phone with a paltry monthly payment of $8.74. This would rack up a total bill of $210 after the stipulated 2-year period, which is quite a bargain. You can choose from the colors Black Moon and Pure White, and there are no strings attached.
The Essential Phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 chipset and sports 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It runs Android 9.0 Pie and packs in a 3,040mAh battery. Despite the discontinuation of the phone, it will continue to receive updates, and the company has promised that it will get Android Q.
