I backed this mostly out of curiosity - might cancel before it ends depending on their answers to some questions I posed.

Copied from FB because this is important.

"Congratulations! The 2018 ACA (Affordable Care Act) enrollment period has been shortened to 45 days (Nov 1-Dec 15). You're not seeing advertising about the enrollment window online or on TV because the White House wants the program to fail. And mysteriously this year the ACA website is down on Sundays for "maintenance." Fortunately, your friends are posting this and using the word "congratulations" so it gets posted more frequently in Newsfeed by FB algorithms.
Please copy and paste, not share.
NB: I'm not sure if all the particulars are correct, except the part about Sunday and the part about the WH sabotaging ACA open enrollment. In any case: NOW IS THE TIME TO ENROLL. I want YOU to have health insurance
Thank you, friend from whom I stole this!"

For Sale: Essential Phone PH-1 with 2-year extended coverage and 360 camera

I’ve only had this two months, but I decided it wasn’t the right phone for me and I’ve replaced with a Google Pixel 2 XL which just arrived – so now I’m looking to sell this one. It is unlocked and supports pretty much any carrier, just insert an LTE SIM – Essential phone info: https://www.essential.com/

I paid $699 for the phone, $99 for the 2-year extended coverage, and $50 for the camera (special intro offer, discounted from $199 for pre-orders) – or $848 total. Last week they decided to slash the phone price by $200, so today the price for all of this is $499+$99+$179 (discount from $199 when bought with the phone) - $777 total.

I’m selling it all, including all the original packaging and cabling (which I never used, as I already had USB-C chargers & cables), and I’d like to get $650 – you save $127 off the current price, I only take a $198 bath. ;-)

I did like the 360 camera, enough that I bought a USB-C 360 camera to use with my Pixel 2 XL (http://amzn.to/2gL4eKL). Some samples (you need to click on the photos/videos to see them in 360):

My main issue was the sound – my last phone was a Nexus 6P with front-facing stereo speakers, but the PH-1 has a single speaker on the bottom of the phone. I didn’t expect it to matter as much, but I really missed stereo sound with videos and games. I also prefer a larger screen (hence the 6P and 2XL instead of the 5X and 2). It is a well-built phone – glass front, ceramic back, titanium frame – just not for me.

I can ship it anywhere.
