Amazon is currently offering up the Essential PH-1 smartphone along with its 360-degree camera, which is said to be the smallest in the world right now, for just $499. That's a great price for this smartphone, considering the Essential PH-1 costs $499 normally, and the camera is typically another $200 on top of that.
The Essential PH-1 is a great smartphone to grab this holiday season for a number of reasons. One of this is the design. It's a titanium and ceramic smartphone, so it is heavy, but also pretty tough. Allowing you to have peace of mind when carrying it around. It also sports a 5.7-inch display with pretty minimal bezels. There is a notch at the top, which is smaller than the iPhone X's notch, and only really has the camera inside. It is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There's no micro SD card slot but with 128GB of storage, that should be plenty for most people.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap next-day shipping if you need it here extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime by hitting the link below. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $99/year. Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits. Remember that if you are looking to pick this up as a gift for someone this holiday season, you'll need to order it by December 18th for non-Prime shipping, and if you are a Prime member, you have until December 22nd, to get it in time for the Holidays. Amazon does also offer extended returns for anything purchased before December 31st, can be returned until January 31st, 2018.
