The founder of Android created the Essential Phone with features you care about and want, nothing more. It's unlocked and also compatible with all carriers—no traps. 

  • More screen, less phone

    Offering the biggest screen-to-body ratio of any phone in the US, Essential's 5.71-inch edge-to edge Quad HD Display is still as comfortable as it is impressive.

  • A powerfully minimal design

    Essential Phone is crafted for space-age strength with premium materials–titanium, ceramic, and Gorilla Glass 5. And since we believe your phone is your personal property, you won't find any branding or logos.

  • Capture everything

    Our 13MP Dual-Camera and Portrait Mode instantly elevate your photos. Take it even further in 4k with the 360º Camera for Essential Phone.

  • More breathing room

    128GB of storage just makes life easier. And even better: no need to spend extra on external storage options.

  • Accessories that click

    The Click Connector™ creates a seamless experience connecting accessories and charging them. It's magnetic, wireless, and sleek. It'll be on future Essential devices for maximum versatility.

  • Straight-up Android

    The Essential Phone runs pure Android. It's smooth, fast, fluid, and not weighed down by unnecessary apps or preloads.
