                            The essential phone is as awesome device.It is priced around 700 USD .The problem is that at this price point there are other phones which are better and offers much more features like a headphone jack,wireless charging,water resistance etc . The best android phones like the galaxy S8 and many other flagship phone are at this price range and offers much more.And ditching the headphone jack was a bad move from the company .Why does everyone has to follow apple.
