When the father of Android Andy Rubin announced that he was starting up a new smartphone company called Essential, everyone sat up and took notice.

The phone that came out of that company, the Essential Phone, was an ultra high-end device that was supposed to take Apple and Samsung on at their own games with a suitably high price to boot.

Things didn’t go according to plan though, with few willing to spend the money needed – around $700 – to get their hands on a phone with a camera notch at the top of the display. Price drops soon followed, and right now the Essential Phone can be had for its lowest ever price.

If you are on the lookout for a new, high specification and well built Android phone today then the current price of $449.99 that is offered by Amazon is certainly a very fair price to pay for what was always an underrated phone, despite its flaws. That price gets you a 128GB Android phone that looks the part thanks to its ceramic and titanium construction and it’s highly unlikely you will see many people walking around with one of these too, making it quite the statement phone. Oh and did we tell that you it comes with free earphones as part of this deal, giving you a total of $100 in savings!

The Essential Phone is expertly crafted using titanium and ceramic, with an edge-to-edge Full Display and uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

Accessories that simply click – With the phone’s revolutionary magnetic connector, accessories can easily attach to your device so it’s future-proof and always up-to-date.

In a world where phones are costing $999 this $449.99 bargain should not be overlooked, you really cannot go wrong for this kind of money in exchange for an unlocked, ceramic smartphone – in a color of your choice, especially now that the phone is running final version of Android 8.1 (the only phone beside the Pixel 2) officially, have received software updates for camera improvements, and more!
