Essential Phone gets massive price cut

Essential Phone gets massive price cut”

And Essential knows it - Andy Rubin's outfit has dropped the price of the phone to $499 several weeks after its late August launch.

The Essential Phone went on sale just a few months ago, but the company believes that as a young startup just getting out therein a market where incumbents like Apple and Samsung basically take up all the available space, there's a lot of value in word of mouth and perceived value.

The revised price is already in effect at the company store, but the retailers like Amazon and Best Buy are yet to correct the price on their websites.

For the early adopters out there, Essential is offering a $200 coupon code that can be used on Essential.com for either a new Essential Phone or the 360 Camera (which is priced at $199).

To recap, the Essential Phone comes with a 5.71-inch edge-to-edge display on the front (2560 x 1312 pixels), dual cameras, and lacks a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

In addition, Essential Phone has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and 3040 mAh battery. That's an awesome price for their debut smartphone, which remains my favorite in terms of straight up industrial design (and it has one of the best color-tuned displays in devices right now in my opinion). But that last issue is less of a concern, now that the phone is $100 off at Best Buy. Amazon seems to be offering worldwide shipping for the Essential Phone. However, starting today, Essential Phone will have a new price. You will obviously have to pay the requisite taxes and import duties.
