Essential PH-1 is a phone that looks like an iPhone X copycat! This phone might have been released before iPhone X is being released but let’s get honest. They probably copied the new Apple design and tried to release their own phone first.
It’s mainly on the front side with the all-screen design it copies Apple. On the back they look different because iPhone X doesn’t come with fingerprint sensor and it has a traffic light camera design. Something you do not get on the PH-1. Let’s take a look at the specs for this Android phone.
Main specs: 5.71 inch LTPS IPS LCD display, Gorilla glass 3 screen protection, Android 7.1 Nougat, Snapdragon 835 Chipset, Octa-core processor 4×2.45GHz Kryo + 4×1.9GHz Kryo, Adreno 540 GPU, No microSD card slot, 128GB Internal storage, 4GB of RAM, Dual 13MP rear camera, 8MP front facing camera, Bluetooth 5.0, No 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C 1.0 Reversible connector and 3040mAh Battery!
The main cool things here are the powerful processor which is high-end, Large storage and Bluetooth 5.0. Latest Bluetooth technology will be very important especially because this phone doesn’t have earphone port. So most people will use wireless earbuds and then they need a stable latest Bluetooth tech.
This phone comes in Stellar Gray, Ocean Depths, Black Moon and Pure White colours. It cost around 300 euro less than iPhone X so great if you want to fool your friends you own the latest iPhone.
But you need to install an iOS 11 launcher inside Android and put on a back case to truly fool them hard! I feel that the battery is a bit weak in this phone same as I felt with Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro. Barely 3000mAh. Not good enough for a high-end smartphone 2017.
