Essential Phone Performance:
Performance wise, the essential phone is excellent. All this, is coming from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, 4GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage, which seems more than enough to deliver smooth responsive user experience. The device is running on Android 7.1 (Nougat). Furthermore, the company says upgrades to Android 8 (Oreo). I wonder that the essential phone has pretty solid battery life. It was too small to keep its 5.7″ inches screen up for long. But, I am happy to report that the PH-1 has almost half an hour extra on time than Samsung Galaxy S8’s on time which is 9hours and 12minutes.
The Essential Phone has lack of services of minimalism: There is no 3.5mm headphone jack, Wireless charging, water resistance and microSD card slot. Without these features, the phone is painful to use on a daily basis. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Essential Phone has a Dual set of 13 Megapixels sensor cameras at the rear. As well as there’s an 8 Megapixel shooter camera at the front.
It was so disappointing that out of the box, the Essential PH-1 didn’t even to HDR phone. After four updates the issue was resolved. But still, having a dual 13 megapixel camera units, the essential phone didn’t have optical zoom or in depth effects like iPhone 7 Plus or Huawei Honor P10 does. In fact, there are few customizable settings available in the camera app at all.
