Essential Phone: 3 things I'm hyped about


  1. Build Quality - titanium and ceramic seem to be awesome choices. Titanium is ultra strong and light at the same time, no chances of deforming it like aluminum. Ceramic seems to have a superb look and feel over glass, while being also more durable (if you believe Rubin). Also, ceramic just like glass lets radio waves pass through, unlike metal. So concerning build quality Essential seems to have entered a new ballpark entirely, making even the iPhone look cheap.
  2. Wireless USB 3 - I think the new magnetic port is simply genius. The reasons are obvious.
  3. Stock Android, Google Pixel style finger print reader - I love my Pixel so this seems like an overall improvement.
