You might THINK you want total control of your home security system and Wink Lookout will give you that. Be careful what you wish for though. #IoT

Time to taste a developer preview of Android Oreo 8.0 on the Essential Phone. https://www.essential.com/developer/overview

Like the $299 price and BT keyboard.

Don’t like the Snapdragon 625 and 2GB RAM.

More of a consumption device than anything else, at least on paper. For $100 more, they could have thrown in a better Snapdragon and/or 4GB of memory. That would be more compelling IMO.

Having a little too much fun with the sensors on the iPhone X. Norm thought he heard a squad of Rebel Alliance Cats. 😂

Good to see an Essential Phone re-review. FWIW, I’m 100% in agreement with these observations.
