[Koodo] [Koodo] Essential Phone, medium tab, $15 x 24 monthly payments

I just noticed the essential phone is back on sale again. I know that this was on sale last year around the same time for the same price. Now that the software is much better than same time last year, in my opinion it is still not a bad buy at $360. Since essential promised up to 3 years of software support, there is a good chance that this phone will see android Q.

I'm not going to upvote or downvote this, but considering that this phone was selling at this price 6 months ago, and Amazon was selling at 315 with earbuds included, I don't know if I would consider this a worthwhile deal. I think I would get the P20 over this model, or just wait for LG G7 to go down in price again :)

P20 over this. As gbssengo mentioned, it was on sale for ~$300 on Amazon with Earphones.

Still can't get over how bad the camera is on the PH-1 :(

I took a big risk posting this. I wish there was a lukewarm deal section in this forum. If this was available on small tab, it would be a worthy purchase.

To those interested, they confirmed that Q was going to be on this phone in a Q&A. As for the camera, It is very bad, but a lot better when you download google camera. They just released a working version that include the pixel 3 night mode!

Free feels good.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Best phone I've ever owned. That said, I paid $240 and don't know if I would pay $360 this much later on.

There's one on the B-S-T forums for $280. Seems closer to a reasonable price now given age of the chipset and uncertainty surrounding company's future
