Yes sir, fail on my part....figured would be same as 6p sim but it's isim so no network evaluation yet.   Phone build is awesome and feels solid in the hand. Included accessories are too notch.

Playground, the VC that's funding Essential, had a startup showcase here in town for SXSW (they rented out a bar on Rainey Street for today and tomorrow). I swung by and handed my contact info to one

A few photos but nothing special. Using it on WiFi and all apps restored from my g6 with no issues.

 

Decent battery so far with restoring apps and changing my settings so far.

 

More to come....

I want to try this phone but if I'm gonna go caseless.... I want the matte finish stellar gray, hopefully the company will have that choice available for me. Samsung has disappointed me in color choices

Finger prints are a minor issue but many wraps if you want one...some very nice ones!

 

 

So far, the PH1 has a better radio for me compared to my g6.

 

Hands onto LTE much longer and send faster....no speed test yet.

My Nexus 6p uses the CSIM, whats the ISIM?

A new sim card....lol

 

I tried my 6p and it was a failure, contacted our fearless Lilo & Stich moderator and hooked me up with the correct isim numbers bc most Sprint reps have no clue....

I was considering it...until Google agreed to replace my Nexus 6P for a Pixel XL.  Now I will wait until next year to replace my phone.

I'm going to get one, but I was waiting for a display model to play with it first...went to a store last week and the clerk had no idea what an Essential phone was. Funny thing about that though, there was a picture of it on the store's wall - and I turned around and pointed to it. :lol: He said "Oh, yeah that hasn't come in yet"

I heard about the replacements, no cost swap for the XL?

Feels so nice in the hand, very nice phone but overpriced. I'm happy to get off my g6 though...Paying off my g6 easy pay and selling it ASAP.

No cost.  They did authorize my card for $900+, but said they will only charge if they don't get back the 6P within 21 days.

I have a note 5 and played with the essential phone in the store the other day and like the looks of it.  Just gun shy from reading the Reddit essential sub with all the issues.  I looked over the AMA from yesterday with Andy and it seems like they are working hard to fix several of the issues so with that said, what's the signal performance like with this thing?

I haven't done any scientific tests but I'm having no problem getting band 41 or LTE in general.

 

On a side note. This is the first phone I had from Sprint that can handoff between WiFi calling and LTE calling.

I played with one in the store a week or so ago. It felt very nice in hand, and it seemed very fast. I haven't been following the news on the phone to look for issues and real user feedback. I'll try to find the Reddit thread when I have a few minutes.

The biggest issue I'm having is with the camera app sometimes force closing.

 

The OS is running pretty good for me. I did have a random reboot when leaving my house using Android Auto. Other than that the phone has run smoothly.

 

The hardware feels so good in the hand and it feels more durable than the new Samsung. I don't know if it is though.

When phone is in do not disturb mode, have options set for calls and texts from starred contacts, not receiving and texts or calls from anyone.

Alarms works of course but not texts or calls.

Can anyone else test?

It works on mines. I receive calls and sms from my starred contacts.

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
