    Wow. They really don't want me to buy a new phone.

    Good on them, I sincerely hope they follow through. Would be especially cool if they used their experience with the previews to launch it in August.

    Yeah saw this on Android Authority. I've been hunting for either a 3T or Essential PH-1, but this has me lean towards the 3T which unlike the Essential has a headphone jack and a better camera.

    Is it a better camera than essential? I didn't know that.

    The reviews on the Essential camera are mediocre though the Pixel camera app can be side loaded I understand. Where it does excel is both cameras shoot 4K video and it has a black/white button. Other than that the stock camera app is bare bones and low light photos aren't good. In its favor it does have the Qualcomm 835 with 4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage though.

    I've owned the PH-1 and 3T and used them at the same time for a few months. The screen is one of the big advantages the PH-1 has over the 3T. As long as you get one without much light bleed, the brighter higher resolution PH-1 IPS LCD looks quite a bit better than the 3T Optic AMOLED.

    The PH-1 camera isn't that bad. IMO, it went from terrible to decent/solid after a ton of updates over several months. Both tend to struggle with low light pics unless you use the monochrome on the PH-1. I remember my old Nexus 6P consistently took the better (more detailed and accurate) pics in different settings. There's monthly r/Essential photo threads if you want to see some examples of pics from the PH-1.

    Thanks..I generally don't buy phones for the camera; was just mentioning what I'd seen in reviews. I would think the 3T is much faster though it does have an earlier SoC than the PH-1. From speed test videos I've watched most OnePlus devices smoke others with a few exceptions.
