Essential Phone Review

The Essential Phone is probably the most interesting phone I’ve used in a while. It’s the first phone (and product) to come out of Andy Rubin’s (the “father of Android”) new company, Essential but the phone isn’t anything that’s overtly over-the-top.

Update: Shortly after reviewing the Essential Phone, the company dropped the price in Canada from $1,050 CAD to $650 CAD, this review has been updated to reflect that.
