The Essential PH-1 went on sale for just US$280 a few days ago, but is now listed for even less. Surely there aren’t any brand new devices that can compete at this price point?

It’s been about a year since the Essential PH-1 went on sale. Android founder Andy Rubin’s brainchild, a number of issues blighted the PH-1 at launch, leading to horrible sales of the device. That has come as a boon for the average user out there, though, as the PH-1 has seen a number of heavy discounts off its MSRP, the latest leaving the device with the lowest price tag it's ever carried.

The PH-1 went on sale a few days ago for just US$280, and has now been discounted even further. It can be snagged on Amazon at an unbeatable price point of US$224. That’s US$224 for a device featuring a Snapdragon 835, QHD+ display, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, a 13 MP + 13 MP (RGB, Mono) dual rear camera setup, an 8 MP selfie snapper, a 3040 mAh battery, and one of the best smartphone designs ever. It’s also currently the only device—bar Google’s own Pixels—to be running on a stable, official Pie build. 

The PH-1 may have its issues—relatively sub-par network reception and camera performance stand out—but there’s no doubt that you’d be hard pressed, and incredibly so, to find a brand new device that offers a similar package at this price point.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
