    Yes Congrats! When the Essential first came out I really really wanted one. At that price tag it can't be beat. For the specs it has that is a killer deal. I will be interested to hear your thoughts on it, if you decide to keep or move to another device.

    I had checked out every other phone and was ready to pull the trigger on the Note 8 but decided to look at this given that its less than half the cost of the N8.

    First impressions are very favorable. The build, the size, the weight, and the awesome screen (it really is the best LCD I've seen) with top specs - all positives. Battery life is excellent too.

    I did have to give up a few things like wireless charging and stereo speakers...

    If photography was really important to me then this phone probably wouldn't be for me. Outdoor pictures are great, but low light shots are definitely poor and grainier than my last phone. I don't take many pics though.

    I will give it a week or so and then decide whether to keep it or maybe I will encounter a N8 deal for Black Friday.

    Either way, wow... this is an excellent device...especially given the price, and if the N8 doesn't come down from it's $1000 perch after activation fees and taxes for Black Friday, I could see myself keeping the Essential phone for quite awhile.

    I also like rooting for the underdog...lol

    I wanted to give you the heads up on this if you hadn't seen it. It requires Sprint service, but I thought it might help you get a discount. 150.... That's crazy.

    Wow. That is totally insane! Unfortunately I need to stay with Verizon due to coverage issues with Sprint. I totally appreciate the heads up though!

    I began experiencing random hot reboots a couple days ago. Totally random - not tied to any app I installed. I've got a couple days left to return it to Best buy and I can't decide what to do... love this phone. But Best Buy is offering Black Friday sale for Note 8 at $24 a month for 24 months - about $580. That makes it reasonably priced and very tempting. Do I wait it out for Essential to fix software issues or get the note 8. Decisions Decisions!

    Somehow I had a feeling that you might suggest that!

    I'm sold on the Note series. I won't go to anything else so long as they are still made.
