Warranty Will be Essential with the Essential Phone


There are a few major brand-names in the smartphone space and quite a few that are trying to break into this crowded market. If you're going to make it, you have to offer killer features, incredible design or a rock-bottom price. The "Essential Phone" tries to do almost all of that and while it looks nice enough, it really isn't repairable. It scores a dismal 1 out of 10 - if you freeze it before you dive in.

There’s a newbie in the smartphone scene, and it’s bringing a whole lot less to the table. That’s right, in a world of "more is better," this phone has just the essentials—like a ceramic back, and a titanium chassis. Okay, it might actually be a little fancier than the name suggests—but we’ll have to open it up to find out for sure! Join us as we tear down the Essential Phone.
