    Good catch! Looks like it's part of a 3-day sale only through Best Buy.

    I have white on the way but am tempted to snag a second one in black, just because.

    Haha I would suggest snagging a different phone instead so that you can enjoy different phones

    LOL... true. Not sure what else to consider though. A Black BB KEYone might work if it wouldn't be a hassle to warranty in case of failure. That's about as different as it gets.

    Does Amazon price match?

    Don't count yourself too high just yet. It's just a 3-day sale with Best Buy. You predicted Essential themselves permanently discounting. That hasn't happened yet. Much different.

    Does Amazon price match?
    I doubt it in this case. It's a 3-day sale, not a permanent price change.

    Doesn't hurt to email Amazon with a link to the Best buy sale to see what they'll say.

    Let us know what they say. I'll buy one from them on the spot if they'll match it.

    Sometimes admitting you were wrong is good for you. You should try that.
    In general, it even started way sooner than I expected. 3 days or not, it the first slash and it's a big one. Plus they still keep the 50$ 360 bundle too!

    You said Essential would be dropping the price due to low sales, not a 3-day sale at Best Buy. Nice try shifting it on me though. LOL

    As soon as Essential drops their price on the PH-1 permanently, and not just because they release a new model or a third-party reseller is running a temporary sale, you can gloat all you want.

    FYI the white version is now available from best buy for $599. Nothing in stock locally but available to ship. Placed an order from best buy, will return the Amazon one once I receive the best buy since I'll be saving $100. Estimated delivery date is October 30th for me. I can wait since already have one currently

    Nice. Since you've had both, which color do you like better? Assume for this answer that you aren't already tired of black phones.

    White without a doubt, looks more nicer IMO and hides fingerprint better. May be little grippier (not sure) but I can say I enjoy looking, using the white one than I had with the black.

    One more thing, using the Pixel 2 XL currently and whenever I hold the essential it feels so much better in the hand and the hardware is so great. They hit it out of the park in terms of design.

    My perfect phone is Google pixel 2 in a essential body

    Just look at the essential hardware in white... Looks so beautiful. Get the white is my recommendation.

    Google lens on Pixel thinks essential is Pixel

    No doubt there! I'd even accept a camera bump despite how that would affect the design.

    My white won't be here until Tuesday. I might order from Best Buy as well and leave it unopened since there's no restocking fee on unopened phones. Maybe I'll buy both colors...

    Edit: Done deal. Both white and black arrive on Tuesday.

    I prefer black phones, the last white phone I had was the HTC One M7, but damn that's one good looking phone.

    FYI - Amazon also has the white version on sale for $599 with free one day/same day shipping for prime members. Act fast if you want one quick, you could have one in your hand on Sunday

    Amazon had only white for $599, it could be their algorithms or something probably did the price adjustment automatically because of best buy price. Amazon has stuff built in like that for automatic price adjustment/variation based on various factors. Now that best buy is back to original price will be interesting to see how long Amazon has at this price.

    @bhatech Agreed. It'll be interesting to see how long the Amazon price lasts. If it's temporary then it's likely just to rival Best Buy. If it's permanent then there might actually something to it.
