Essential Phone still worth $350?

Looking to replaced my Xiaomi Mi Note 2 that I've been using since 2016 with a shattered back. eBay deal has essential phone on sale for $350 but the online reviews were nothing short of scathing.

Is the phone still worth it at $350?

If it is brand new, definitely. The scathing reports are likely old news. The software problems are by and large fixed. We are anxiously awaiting the official roll out of android P.

I'm not completely happy with the Essential Phone and I have moved on to an iPhone 8. However for $350, yes, it's worth it. I would say OP you should look into getting a Galaxy s8 through Koodo when they go on sale. You can get them for $200-300. It will give you a better experience overall IMO. Or see if you can get the Rogers deal I just got, it's insane. You get to choose any flagship phone you want for free.

Still using my essential phone, it cost around $185 all in for me during Koodo promo. It have been a good ride so far, the phone is not problem free don't get me wrong, mine has glitchy screen sometimes where my touch wouldn't register. But stock android, flagship specs, and a fraction of the price compare to Google Pixel. Overall it's worth it to me.

Play the Koodo game and acquire the phone for less.

The phone does not appear to be available through Koodo any more, unfortunately.
