    This is seriously a good price for this phone, especially when compared to the other flagships out now. Got Best Buy to price match.

    LOL... looks like @Guy Katz can finally gloat all he wants.

    Now I need to return one of mine and re-purchase. Hard to pass at this price.

    Add to that if you already purchased the device (early adopters purchase date before Oct 22) you can get a $200 off coupon and use it with $499 price bringing it down to $299 which is a unbelievable price.
    So if you are like me and are still in return period, I would register wait for the code to arrive and then return/purchase the phone. I registered for code but says it'll take up to 15 days for the code to receive. More details in below link.

    Wow. Thanks for catching that. Registered and will grab one at $299. Guess it pays to adopt early sometimes.

    I guess now we get to gloat since we're getting our so cheap.

    Also, let me know when you get code. I'll do the same so that we can pester essential for the code if it gets to that

    Definitely worth the wait. My white should be here this week. No rush on my end for black.

    Let the hilariously melodramatic speculation over them going out of business begin. I'll put money on them being in full swing by this time next year.

    Will do! You as well.

    @bhatech Now I wonder if we'll be getting leftover devices with the speaker grille issue. Haha. Even if so, it'll be worth the massive discount.

    Have the updates improved the overall performance and snappiness of the phone?

    I heard it has got a lot of updates to make the camera better. Is it really good now? I like the design and wanted to try this phone. I just don't want a bad camera.

    They would but you might as well go for the $299 F&F pricing through Essential. You purchased before 22 Oct and qualify for $499 minus $200 F&F coupon. It might take a few weeks for the coupon and new order to happen but you're also saving over 50% in the process.

    Got camera update 2 days ago along with phone app and resources. I think it's decent now, especially shots in good light. I'm very picky with my pics. Coming from a Huawei Mate 9, the Leica lens spoiled me.

    Here's a test shot

    It's an above average camera and they are constantly trying to improve it, don't buy it if you want the best camera. It's not at this point.
