One of the best phones of the year which was a surprising addition to the smartphone line-up has just got better.
The Essential Phone that made a massive dent in the market with its amazing bezel less display is now $200 cheaper without any contract and comes unlocked.
Smartphone buyers hardly have any options in the United States unless they choose to tie themselves to a cellular contract. Essential Phone is changing the norms once again as it is now a truly flagship phone that sells for just $499 off-contract and unlocked. The phone has already raked up massive positive reviews from both customers and critics.
A surprising move by the manufacturer because the model got released just a couple of months ago and reducing a massive $200 to make it a mid-ranged device seems like they are running out of sales. But, the brand’s representatives confirmed that they are doing it for a lot of reasons. While third party sales estimates were much higher, the Essential Phone managed to achieve some of the numbers if not all of them.
Apple and Samsung, both smartphone mammoths have launched their flagship models. The iPhone X with its massive $1,000 price tag is the only deterrent whereas buyers can always choose to buy any of the models through a contract. The brand which is an early start-up doesn’t want to lose it to competition which is why they have thrown a significant offer that people can’t resist, especially if they are excited about owning a phone that would cost them less on the long run without tieing them to a manufacturer.
For buyers who have already purchased the Essential Phone, the team ensured that they stay happy by offering them $200 in Friends and Family Credit. The existing customers can choose to buy the same phone for a friend or family by getting a total price of about $400 making it the cheapest, flagship device you could get your hands on at just $300. The offer is open till December 15,2017.
They can also purchase the 360-camera as an attachment for their existing smartphone. The $200 credit will be added to anyone’s account if they prove that they are an existing Essential Phone owner by providing the IMEI and serial number along with the registered e-mail to avail the offer.
The offer is only available in the U.S. now and is expected to be made available in Canada next.
