    Gorgeous Phone and very well equipped for the sub $300 USD price range if you can get it for that price.

    Just about everything with this phone is gorgeous, the screen, the performance, and the price I paid for it.
    It beats out the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ in performance for a fraction of the price!

    KiPositives
    • Build quality is fantastic
    • Updates nearly as fast as the Google Pixel devices
    • Very fast and responsive
    • Screen to body ratio still one of the best
    • Powerful for the price, beats Galaxy S8+

    Excellent smartphone - low light photos could be better

    This is one of the best deals still available in the market. The build and design are beautiful, android Auto integration is flawless, NFC does as required, updates keep coming, even for the camera which is much improved over early days.

    Speedy phone with incredible price, and very nice now with Oreo update

    This phone is now super cheap here in Canada. It is 360 CAN$ (280 US$ - 230 Euro) with my provider (Koodo).

    With the latest updates, the phone now has OREO 8.1, and the phone scores even higher in Antutu (I got 203059 on my phone).

    The latest version fixes most issues people have seen with the phone, and the 360 camera you can get is also very nice. I got it for 60 CAN$ (47 US$ - 38 EURO - Tax included).

    The ONLY issue I have is that it sometimes is not as responsive as I would like in games for quick touch response. For example, in subway surfer, it sometimes doesn't respond as quickly as I would like when playing.

    Other than that, I have just the best experience with the phone.

    KiPositives
    • Very fast phone
    • Latest updates (Oreo 8.1)

    Fantastic mobile

    The design for my taste to be the first notch of the market made it great, the size at hand is good, a weight somewhat superior to other models of this size but it is very nice to note that it feels very good in hand and that it is not echo with plastic or poor quality materials. The best thing without a doubt and I hope they continue like this is the updates, the camera is better but I put the camera application of the Google pixel and it's great.

    It's the closest thing to a Google Nexus or Pixel

    In everyday use is a great phone with everything you need from a smartphone, has the same updates as a Google Pixel even with security patches that come out at the same time (without counting Google phones or iPhones, almost do not exist phones with this degree of updates). The Essential is a phone with a large screen, very good performance, excellent battery, very good signal (at least with Claro Argentina), fast and without lags, at the height of the flagships of 2017. I leave a link so you can see The quality of the photos vs an iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus. https://photos.app.goo.gl/XSGAc2aWLWT1npPf1
