Unlocked Essential Phone comes to Best Buy

The most difficult thing about buying a smartphone online is never having the chance to hold it first. Not knowing how it feels in the hand is tough because that’s such a critical part of enjoying using your phone on a day to day basis.

If you want to play with the Essential Phone in person, and maybe buy one if you fall in love, head over to Best Buy. The retail chain now has the unlocked device in stock both online and in stores.

With a 5.71-inch 1312×2560 display, a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, dual 13MP cameras, a ceramic back, a titanium frame, and the stock Android experience, it’s definitely a tempting buy at $699.99. The build quality is especially alluring. You willl have to live without a headphone jack and water resistance, though. Let us know if you pick one up!
