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. Starting at $499.
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.
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.
Our 13MP Dual-Camera and Portrait Mode instantly elevate your photos. Take it even further in 4k with the 360º Camera for Essential Phone.
128GB of storage just makes life easier. And even better: no need to spend extra on external storage options.
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.
The Essential Phone runs pure Android. It's smooth, fast, fluid, and not weighed down by unnecessary apps or preloads.
