Looking to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day to pick up a new smartphone? Then look no further than the Essential PH-1, also known as the Essential Phone. As in spite of this phone already having hit a number of discounts over the last few months, it is now available to buy through Amazon for just $249.99. This is the lowest price it has been since it launched and one so low that it's hard to argue against the value on offer here.
While some might consider this a little bit of a dated phone now, it is one which packs in the value at this price. For example, this was one of the first phones to come sporting the now-infamous notch, resulting in a 5.71-inch display with a 2560 x 1312 and a 19:10 aspect ratio. It also features a dual rear camera setup comprised of two 13-megapixel cameras, along with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as a body that is primarily made up of titanium and ceramic. While the more core specs include 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Soc. As well as a 3,040 mAh capacity battery, a USB Type-C port, and Android Oreo.
Again, while this has seen a number of price drops over the past few months, they all have been considered worthwhile deals at the time which is what makes this deal today an even better deal than ever before. As this is a chance to test out a phone from a new brand at a fraction of the original cost. It's also worth noting there is a choice of color on offer with both Black Moon and Halo Gray colors reflecting the price drop.
