They made this phone in Titanium rather than traditional aluminum, but it’s not indestructible and waterproof. And also, it doesn’t have a headphone jack.
The Rise of Essential
The Essential phone is one of those rare pieces of consumer electronics that are arguably more notable for what it represents than what it actually does. This Handset is the first product from Essential launched by Creator Andy Rubin after leaving Google. The Phone was officially named the Ph1 is an excellent first step for a brand new startup. In fact, the company’s managed a pretty rare feat here, developing a piece of hardware that’s comparable to flagships from big names like Apple and Samsung. The Phone is a bit square and bulky, particularly compared to the curved displays.
After the Essential Ph-1 release, the company plan to release a long narrow display mobile; the device is a part of a much larger strategy for a connected ecosystem that includes an Amazon Echo-like device and its own operating system, Ambient.

Fall of Essential
There are several reasons why this phone only sold 88 thousand units. The phone was not a success early on was because of manufacturing. People have to wait months to receive these phones. And they also failed to gave software updates. Most of the Smartphone companies don’t get a second chance to fix the First Impression. Another reason for a fall was the Market; it wasn’t enough to really put a dent in the market as far as units sold and be a true competitor to Samsung’s likes.
Many Rumors started to circulate about the Essential phone not being a thing that the company is shifting focus on. They’re no longer going to make smartphones and focus solely on home solutions automated systems in the house. Then Andy Rubin revealed the words, “We always have multiple products in development at the same time, and we embrace canceling some in favor of the ones we think will be bigger hits.”

Marketing, Availability delay, and meltdown Issues are the only problems, except that the phone attracts many users. All of these problems can be fixed. So Carl Pei made the right decision to acquired with Essential. In the future, Carl Pei is likely to rerelease their Essential Smartphones with so many updates.
It is not surprising that Nothing has launched a wide range of Smartphones to compete with OnePlus. Generally, OnePlus mostly focuses on Flagship Phones.

Some companies may have lots of beautiful ideas. But for some reasons. They can’t implement it to the public. Essential is one of those brands. When they launched their ideas and announced, devices are way different and compare with Android market devices. Also, their software is great, and even sometimes, they roll out the update after Google Pixel mobiles are received. The Android OS is near Stock Android.
