Essential Phone

Both the Black Moon and Pure White models are on sale for $399, with deals on the 360° camera and Essential Earbuds as well.

The original notched Android phone was met with pretty solid reviews overall after its launch just under a year ago. Here at Techaeris, the phone received high marks too, with reviewer Jason Bouwmeester praising the build quality, specs, performance, and QHD screen. The phone has already seen one pretty major price reduction that brought the MSRP down to $499 USD, though today you can pick up an Essential Phone of your very own for the low low price of $399 USD.

Amazon has both the Black Moon and Pure White models on sale for $399. If you’d like to add the available 360° camera the price comes out to $467.88, while a bundle including the phone and Essential HD Earbuds brings the price to $496.87. This is still a pretty great phone at an even better price than it was previously. In case you need a refresher on what’s included, take a look at the specs and see just what you’re getting:
