    Well, I've been using an Essential phone for quite some time. After dusting off the moth balls (Xperia Compact XZ2) and, receiving Android 9 I'm really impressed with the performance. I've been doing a little speed tests(same phone company, same location) and oh my goodness, I received three speed test results averaging 92mbps down and 17 up. Not sure if Sony has optimized the phone with Android 9 but, I couldn't get close to this with the Essential. The phone seems to be faster opening applications, snappier all round. Battery seems to have improved as well. What to do now....
