DEAL: Save $50 on the Essential Phone and get a free pair of $99 headphones

Back in February, Essential announced a few new color options would be made available. One of these color options, Halo Gray, was being made exclusively available through Amazon with Alexa in-tow.

Surprisingly, (or in a way to get more phones off the shelves), Essential is knocking $50 off the price of this Halo Gray edition. This brings the device down to just $449, but Essential is also throwing in a pair of Essential Earphones|HD with each device.

Since the PH-1 does not come equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack, you are left with the USB Type-C port for audio needs. Luckily, the Earphones|HD, connect to your device via USB C, removing the need for an extra dongle.

The best part about this deal is that Essential’s headphones are normally priced at $99. Meaning that if you take advantage of this deal, you’ll be saving a total of $150 for the whole shebang. If you want to pick up the PH-1, hit the button below and snag this deal before it’s gone.

Essential Phone on sale at Amazon and Best Buy, free gift included with purchase

Interested in trying the Essential Phone now that it’s been updated to Android 8.1 Oreo? It looks like now may be a good time to do it.

The Essential Phone is now on sale at Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon is including a free pair of Essential Earphones|HD (normally $99) with every purchase, while Best Buy is throwing in a free $25 gift card with each purchase.

Also of note is that while both the Black Moon and Pure White versions of the Essential Phone are available from Amazon and Best Buy, Amazon is also discounting the limited edition Halo Gray model that offers a matte finish.

As a refresher, the Essential Phone offers flagship-tier specs like a 5.71-inch 2560×1312 display, dual 13MP rear camera setup with one RGB sensor and one monochrome sensor, and a Snapdragon 835 processor. It’s also packing 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3,040mAh battery, and as we mentioned before, it was recently updated to Android 8.1 Oreo, which is something not many other phones can boast.

These Essential Phone deals will only be available for the next few days, so if you’re thinking about jumping on them, you’ll want to act soon.

Deal: $50 off Essential Phone with an added $25 Best Buy gift card


The Essential Phone started with a list price of $699, but Essential dropped the price permanently by $200 a short time later. So really, buying an Essential Phone at its current list price is already kind of a deal. But hey, who’s going to complain if the price gets dropped even further?

Today, you can get an unlocked Essential Phone in Black Moon color for only $449 — a cool $50 off the current list price. To sweeten the deal even further, Best Buy will also give you a $25 gift card for your trouble (the gift card is delivered electronically after purchase).

This is the standard 128 GB model: 4 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing shooter, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Oh yeah, and there’s the much-beloved notch at the top of the display.

Best Buy doesn’t clarify how long this deal will last, so if you’re looking to upgrade to an Essential Phone, it would be a good idea to get on this deal quickly.
