It's worth it to consider that Amazon is selling its exclusive "Halo Gray" color with With Free Essential HD Earphones for $449.99 before Tax. The other 2 regular colors with earphones are on sale at the same price as well.

In case you wonder, what's the difference between Amazon's exclusive Halo Gray and the others, well, it's... the color, and it has built-in Alexa.

I think I'd rather have a $25 Best Buy Gift card over a set of wired headphones.

"With the stylish and compact EarphoneslHD from Essential, you can listen to high-quality audio without needing over sized, bulky headphones. They feature a digital USB-C connector, support USB Audio Class 2, and use a 9.2mm High Resolution driver. So you can enjoy listening to your music in high-quality on your Phone - or even on your Mac or PC."

The headphones don't sound that special to me. The Verge [theverge.com]didn't seem to like them much.

I'd probably buy from BestBuy w/ GC and Pre-Paid time and get a pair of $10 bluetooth headphones that are constantly on sale from Amazon.

I'm typing on this phone right now. I got it last week unlocked for $250. Awesome phone and I got it at the perfect time. It's value is higher since the new Android 8.1 update was released. The phone is now quite amazing. The new update works wonderful. Apple quality build to it. It was $700 just 8 months ago.

None of these "off brand" phones compare to a Galaxy. Speed, screen quality, camera quality.... I'll put my S6 side by side with it and you already know the results. S6 can be bought for $150 or less on ebay. Then sign up for $15 service at MintSim's site. Wink
can't agree.
S7 is not even close to the essential phone. let alone s6.
I have all these three phones
