The most recent update has fixed a lot of the issues with the phone that it got dinged for in initial reviews. Some reviews have revamped their scores to judge it against it's current update and it sounds like Essential is actively trying to squash the last few outstanding bugs.

It's not a bad deal with the camera, but still too rich for most. $100 less (or $200 less without camera) and I'd probably bite.

Camera has been updated twice this week. It has improved a lot. If I'm buying a Snapdragon 835 I'll get this over the others. But it's just me. 😀

How is the ceramic / titanium build hold? Do you need a case. Also as for the weird magnetic adapter placement, this thing is hard to find a case that accommodate that magnetic adapter

Phone is slippery so you will need a case. I have an Incipio TPU case that I like but it does block the magnetic connections.

No, it's a $700 phone. I know math is hard but it's $200 less than the release price but has flagship components.

Phone is very slippery so a case is really needed. I always take very good care of my phones. I've never used a screen protector since Nexus 5 days. Some people drop it and damage the phone some do the same and no damages happen. There are a lot more choices of cases on Amazon that I think can work with that magnet thingy.

Phone cases are the new pocket protectors. If you must...the bay has cheapo ones for a buck fitty. Works fine
