Expert Review

Essential PH-1 release date in India: May 30, 2017

Essential is a new smartphone company created by Android founder, Andy Rubin. The brand has come up with a phone which breaks all the barrier and gives back your freedom of choice. The Essential PH-1 is a smartphone you didn’t know you have been waiting for. We uncover the truth behind the specifications of the Essential phone.   The essential phone has simplicity embedded in their core values and that is what is reflected in their design too. The Essential PH-1 flaunts an elegant design with minimal borders, easy to use design and more. Let's read on to get a glimpse of its speculative review.

What’s hot

Titanium Body, Edgeless 2K Display, Dual Rear Cameras, Snapdragon 835 Processor. 

What’s not?

3040 mAh capacity battery, No microSD card, Single SIM.

Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the new Essential phone offers a beastly performance. The Octa-core processor utilizes 10nm process technology to manufacture the chipset. It makes it the first processor to utilize that technology. As it is coupled with Adreno 540 GPU, expect lag-free gaming on this handset. There is a 4GB RAM involved for supporting smooth multitasking operations.  

The optics department is blessed with dual rear cameras, while on the front you will see a single camera module. Talking about the rear cameras, there are dual 13-megapixel sensors, one is an RGB sensor, while another one is a monochrome sensor. Combined together it becomes the master of low-light photography. There are various camera technologies like PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and Infrared Laser Assist at play here.

Even if it is claimed to be sufficient, the 3040 mAh capacity battery doesn’t add up to be an impressive battery life provider. A smartphone with 2K Display and Octa-core processor would demand a high amount of battery juice. However, the brand has equipped the device with fast charging, which will at least shorten the charging time.  


Design and Display:
Can we just stare at this marvelous piece of technology? Pretty Please! Yes, that’s what you will say once you see this smartphone in front of you. With a stunning edge-to-edge display, there are no bezels on this smartphone. This would be the most comfortable handset you have ever hold in your hand. Talking about the specifications, the display is of 5.7-inch and packs 2560 X 1312 resolution. With brightness levels of 500 nits, the content on display is viewable from any angle. The aspect ratio of 19:10 brings immerse experience on your phone.    


There is no microSD card slot on this essential phone. But is that something to ponder about? We don’t think so. Since the device comes with 128GB of storage, it shouldn’t be a deal-breaker for you when it comes down to comparing the device with your other choices.

Does a smartphone with Edgeless QuadHD Display, Snapdragon 835 Processor, Dual Rear Cameras, and 128GB storage not sound good to you? Well, you might be deaf then. For a price around Rs 45,000, it is the best choice you have got considering the competition like Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 in India.

Recent Updates:
Essential has recently come into news stating that firm had been sourcing out the email id's they had received to third party vendors. The credibility of this is not known yet, however this is definitely going to effect the Essential PH1 release.
