Essential Phone is now $200 cheaper

Essential-Phone

Only available in the United States as of now, the Essential PH-1, which was launched at $699 (Rs 45,000 approximately) two months ago, has received a price cut, and is now available for $499 (Rs 32,500).

With the new Google Pixel 2 devices being priced higher than ever and and the Apple iPhone X costing more than $1,000, having a compelling smartphone at half that price is something to seriously consider.

The company hasn't directly attributed the cut to sales performance, but it argues that "making it easier" for you to buy the Essential Phone should be more effective at drawing attention than running a marketing blitz. Essential seems to have heard these complaints and has lowered the Phone's price tag down to $499 permanently... Also, the Essential PH-1 is a modular smartphone wherein you can attach modules to the two magnetic pins present at the back of the phone.

Tillerson to enlist Pakistan help for peaceful solution in Afghanistan
US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said that Rex Tillerson will reach Pakistan after visiting Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Washington might see India as a counterweight to China, but India is too big a nation to be used by anyone for such a role.

The Essential Phone, a smartphone designed by Android creator Andy Rubin, is getting a $200 price drop. The credit will be valid through December 15th, 2017 (Yes, the company wants you to quickly spend it on its own products). But after unveiling its handset, Essential's Phone was beset by a range of problems, including failing to deliver the smartphone on time. Now that the company has trimmed the price of the phone by a $200, the company may expect to see a spike in sales.

To try and make up for it the company is offering those who bought the phone before October 22 a $200 discount code for either another Essential Phone or a Essential 360 camera add on. Lastly, it includes a dual-camera setup on the rear with a regular 13-megapixel f/1.85 shooter and another monochrome sensor. The phone is powered by a 2.45 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with Adreno 540 GPU and 4GB RAM. The device is backed by a 3040mAh battery inside.
