Essential Phone review

Essential Phone review
The Essential Phone has the most appealing hardware design of any phone I've used in at least a year. Everybody's taste is different and so this is mostly my own personal aesthetic judgement, but it's a strong one. I simply like holding and using this phone, and I love that it is unapologetically rectangular. The Essential Phone weighs about as much as an iPhone 7 Plus, but, as I said, it's much smaller. That makes it feel substantial, actually dense.



Lots of phones feel like they're derivative copies of other phones, but the Essential Phone genuinely feels like its own thing. There's an old joke that all phones now are "big black slabs" that simply aspire to look like the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Near as I can tell, Essential decided to just up and own that joke. There isn't a single logo or regulatory ID or anything anywhere on the phone (beyond a little flag inside the SIM card tray).
When I met Andy Rubin, the founder of Android, earlier this year to talk about his new company, he showed me a PowerPoint deck from 2009. His team put it together just before the debut of the Motorola Droid, Android’s first real chance to take on the iPhone. The campaign slogan was “Droid Does,” and Motorola planned to harp on all the things the iPhone couldn’t do. It crowed about multitasking, “real keyboards,” and interchangeable batteries. And it worked: The Droid was a smash hit, in large part because it was everything the iPhone wasn’t.

With his new company, Essential, and his new phone, the Essential Phone (the PH-1, but we’re not calling it that), Rubin’s playing the same game. But the iPhone has changed. The way Rubin sees it, people don’t like that it’s a walled garden with little room to customize or experiment. Or that it’s everywhere, the same phone your grandma and your accountant carry. Or that it is, well, boring.

The Essential Phone ships September 1, starting at $699. You can buy it subsidized from Sprint, or unlocked from Amazon and elsewhere. (You should buy it unlocked.) It is the first in a line of products that Essential believes will bring innovation back to the smartphone market and give people a brand to love in the same way millions love Apple.

In some ways, the Essential Phone appears genuinely exciting and new. In most, it just feels like a really good smartphone. And in a few frustrating ways, it’s not yet good enough.
Heavy Metal

You learn a lot about the Essential Phone merely by picking it up. This sharp-edged, slippery slab of titanium and ceramic conveys power, all tool and no toy. It has no camera bumps, no branding. The black one (it also comes in white) feels like a prop in a Tom Cruise movie in which he stops mid-call, flings his phone at approaching enemies, incapacitates them all, then pulls his phone from the pile of bodies and resumes the conversation. Maybe with a quip like “Thanks for holding,” dramatic pause, “my phone was busy.”


All of which is to say I love how this phone feels. I wish it were a little lighter in my pocket, and not quite so slippery or prone to fingerprints. It’s also not as tough as it looks. Yes, that titanium body won’t ding or scratch the way aluminum or plastic do. But the Essential Phone isn’t waterproof, which I consider an absolutely necessary feature on a great phone these days, nor is it impervious to destruction like the Moto Z’s Shattershield screen. In a show of confidence of the phone’s strength, the company doesn’t offer a case. Still, it won’t quantify the phone’s ruggedness, because if you drop it, you might just break it.

The screen, though, is everything a phone screen should be. The 5.71-inch, 2560×1312 display renders everything crisply and clearly, and with barely any bezel beyond the bit at the bottom, the phone feels much smaller than, say, an iPhone 7 Plus. Full-screen movies and games look fantastic, even if the odd aspect ratio means your 16:9 video won’t quite fill the screen. And that tiny notch at the top, around the camera? I couldn’t stop looking at it for about an hour, then promptly stopped noticing. I like it more than what I’ve seen in renderings of the next iPhone, and I’d rather have it than the wonky camera placement in something like the Xiaomi Mi Mix. Until manufacturers figure out how to remove the camera notch altogether, this feels like the best answer.

The only downside of this gloriously full screen lies in the software. More often than not, Android slaps a black border at the top of the phone above whatever app you’re using, which kind of kills the effect. In a few places, content can flow all the way up, giving you more maps or an even wider-angle Netflix, but you’d often never know you didn’t have a bezel. As more phones get smaller bezels, this will change, but the full effect of the full screen hasn’t quite arrived.

Part of Essential’s brand holds that people want a phone that feels like their phone, that doesn’t scream brand allegiances or look like every other phone. I want to sneer at the high-mindedness of it all, but I get it. I like having a phone with no logos, no fine print, no camera bumps. Especially when otherwise, it’s about as powerful as you’d want. There’s just one model, with a Snapdragon 835 processor (great), 4 gigs of RAM (meh), 128 gigs of storage (great), a 3040mAh battery (pretty good), and no headphone jack (all the feels, especially since there are no headphones in the box). The battery lasts all day, and even occasionally through the night. The included USB-C charger, which features a nice braided cable, works its magic quickly.

Here’s where I land on the hardware: I really like it. It doesn’t look wildly futuristic like the Samsung Galaxy S8, which boasts an even better display, waterproofing, and a super-slim body. But the Essential is less fragile, it doesn’t have a million logos or a hard drive full of bloatware, and you can actually use the fingerprint reader. As a pure object, I much prefer it to the S8 or Google’s Pixel. I haven’t liked the feel of a phone this much since the glory days of the iPhone 5. But unfortunately, it’s not all such good news.

Snap On, Snap Off
Essential’s camera specs meet your expectations for a high-end phone, but the photos don’t. The two 13-megapixel cameras on the back-one in color and one in monochrome, used mostly to bring additional clarity and depth data in your photos-occasionally take beautiful, rich photos. They also, for no apparent reason, occasionally capture well-lit, noisy, poorly focused shots. I like the slightly saturated look of the photos; I don’t like that they collapse into pixelated blobs as soon as I zoom in. At least the 8-megapixel selfies come out better.

The most fun I had with the Essential Phone’s camera was shooting in Mono mode. Since it’s not just rendering your color-captured photo in black and white, but actually capturing in monochrome, this camera offers a slightly different, more nuanced take on a lot of photos. I got sharper images from this camera alone than the two of them together, and they add an awesome film noir-y look to my Golden Gate Bridge shots. I could almost get away with pretending it’s a Leica on Instagram. Almost.
Like most new phone manufacturers, Essential has some tweaking to do with the camera. Ditto the app, which is easy to use but way underpowered. I don’t like the cartoon-y camera icon, or how few options and settings the app offers-you can shoot in Auto, in Mono, and in slow-mo, and that’s it. I don’t like how absurdly slow the shutter can be, or that you can’t do the 50-shot burst of photos to make sure you get a good one.

Essential’s most interesting ideas about cameras concern the two magnetic ports on the back of the Phone. They form a magnetic accessory port, onto which you can, in theory, stick anything. In practice, you can add the 360-degree camera attachment.

Beyond the camera app, the only software on the Essential Phone is Android. Pure, clean, bloatware-free Android. If you buy from Sprint, you’ll get a couple of pre-loaded apps, but the unlocked version works on every carrier and has none of that grossness.
One of a Million
It’s hard out there for an Android phone. You’ve got Samsung and Huawei selling phones at impossible volumes, while Xiaomi, HTC, Motorola, Google, Oppo, OnePlus, LG, and 1,000 other companies seek a niche. Cheap phones are awesome; expensive phones are incredible. All smartphones do everything now. Essential’s hope is to be the non-brand, the phone that gives users the sense of choice and ownership they’ve been missing. Will it work? Andy Rubin and Essential have roughly $300 million to spend trying to find out. But it’s a tall order.

I buy the notion that an excellent phone could capture the hearts of people who don’t want Apple’s brand or Samsung’s software mess. And the Essential Phone is almost that phone. It gets so many things right. If this big ol’ metal slab were waterproof, and if I trusted the camera a bit more, I’d happily place it in range of the S8 and Pixel as the best Android phones out there. But it has just enough imperfections to give me pause, and as with any new company, how Essential handles things like updates and customer service will prove crucial.

There’s absolutely room for a phone that doesn’t shove its manufacturer and advertising partners in your face. If you buy this phone, I think you’ll appreciate that about it. You’ll also realize that Essential, like everyone else, is still working out how to truly change the smartphone game.

Full phone specifications Sharp Aquos S2

Full phone specifications Sharp Aquos S2

Sharp keeps making smartphones with incredible, almost bezel-free displays, and today it’s announcing another one: the Aquos S2.

The Aquos S2 looks like the exact average of a flashy phone in 2017. It has a 5.5-inch 2K screen that wraps around the front camera cutout, and the only real bezel is at the bottom of the display, where there’s room for a home button. Home button aside, the phone bears a strong resemblance to the Essential Phone, which was really the first to promote this style — even if it isn’t actually on the market yet.

There is one very weird quirk on the front of the phone, though: look at the top corners of the display. A typical phone would have perfectly square corners. And recently, smartphones have been switching over to slightly rounded corners. But for some reason, Sharp has chosen to cut off the S2’s corners.

Both models have a 3,020mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor, and run Android Nougat. They appear to be on sale in China only, with pricing starting at ¥2499, or about $373 USD.

Sharp's edge-to-edge AQUOS S2 is a glimpse at your next phone



Sharp's edge-to-edge AQUOS S2 is a glimpse at your next phone

Important Phone  may have amazed us with its recent look, but do not forget that Sharp has designed this design with different types of Android phones before - 28 of them, to be exact. Currently, the Japanese brand is launching its 29th release dubbed AQUOS S2 which, quite strangely, looks somewhat familiar. From afar, the S2 screen and Essential Phone screen share the same front-panel notch at the top, except the first is a smaller 5.5-inch panel with a slightly lower resolution of 2,040 x 1,080. The more prominent difference here is how the top corner appears to be in a hurry, which is a bit of a disappointment, but at least you still get a nice 135 percent sRGB gamelan plus a practical 550-nit brightness.
 
Thanks to Sharp's excellent Sharp Shape Display technology, AQUOS S2 has an impressive 87.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. It's also a much smaller device: we're talking about tucking a 5.5 inch screen into a conventional 4.9 inch smartphone body. And do not worry, you still get the abundant 3.030 mAh battery, especially considering the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 type mid-range Qualcomm (8x Kryo 260; 2.2GHz + 1.8GHz; 14nm) or Snapdragon 630 (ARM 8x Cortex A53; 2.2GHz + 1.8GHz; 14nm), depending on the price level you want.
 
While the AQUOS S2 has no power plant, it comes with a pair of nice cameras. The front imager has a 1.4-pixel 1.4um sensor with f / 2.0 aperture, which is pretty good considering how compact the module is. The dual f / 1.75 dual camera on the back consists of a 12 megapixel sensor plus an 8 megapixel sensor, both of which also have efficient 1.4um pixels and simultaneously offer a seven-level bokeh effect.
Compared to previous Sharp smartphones, S2 has discarded the old bone conduction actuators that support the conventional earpiece hidden beneath the screen, next to the front camera, with the sound channeled into a thin pipe mounted along the top edge of the screen. The sound is more clear While the front camera is no longer placed on the chin, there is now a centralized fingerprint reader there - an interesting option when both the Essential and Mi Mix Miomi select the rear fingerprint reader.

Another interesting technical feat here is the use of one "3D" sheet glass back on the premium model: named for that because not only four curved sides, but also printed with a camera bump to give a more elegant result. . As a bonus, the "Sharp" logo is engraved near the bottom, which is a much nicer touch than the regular silk prints. For those who are wondering, Sharp claims that S2 has passed the "tight" drop test for six sides and four corners thanks to its aluminum mid-frame design, but we will believe it when we see it.
It is unclear which market will enter by AQUOS S2, but for now, Sharp already pre-orders in China. The standard model with Snapdragon 630, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at 2,499 yuan (about $ 370), and the color is black, white, blue or green mint. The upcoming premium model then asks for 3,499 yuan (about $ 520) and packs Snapdragon 660, 6GB RAM, 128GB of storage plus the "3D" glass above, but does not have a green mint option.
