Essential PH-1 Already $200 Off, Early Adopter Credit Offered

The Essential PH-1 is already permanently discounted by £200 less than two months after the smartphone from Andy Rubin’s startup first started shipping to consumers. The Palo Alto, California-based company described its discount as an attempt to make its flagship product and services available to more users. Presumably due to the fact that Essential significantly cut down on the price of the PH-1 so early into its promised lifespan, the company also announced a “Friends & Family Code” worth £200 which early adopters who already purchased its device at full price are able to put toward financing another PH-1 or the Essential 360 Camera mod for the handset on the firm’s official website.

Anyone who bought the Essential PH-1 before October 22nd is eligible to receive the coupon by filling out the form available below, with the startup noting that the offer will only be live until November 15th. The Essential 360 Camera is regularly priced at £199 and is currently even available at £179 from Essential’s website, meaning you can essentially exchange the promo code for a free mod. The wording of the company’s announcement suggests that the same coupon cannot be used for purchasing a two-year Essential Extended Care plan which is priced at £99 and offered alongside the device, though that may simply be because the warranty itself isn’t sold on its own.

The same discount is already live on Amazon for the Black Moon variant of the Essential PH-1, though the Pure White one is presently listed at £599, i.e. only £100 off. The company’s early discount was announced shortly after reports that the Essential PH-1 isn’t doing particularly well have emerged, with some industry trackers like BayStreet estimating that the device is underperforming even in the context of a niche product from a Silicon Valley startup and has only sold approximately 5,000 units in its first month on the market. An early and permanent 28.5 percent discount adds more credence to the possibility that the Essential PH-1 had a disappointing commercial debut, although the company unsurprisingly didn’t reflect on the phone’s performance while announcing its price drop.

The startup previously promised to deliver numerous new mods for the Essential PH-1, in addition to bringing the bezel-free Android flagship to other markets like Europe and Japan.

The Pro’s and Con’s of Shopping Online

I get it, purchasing products online is simple, cheaper, and easier than going to a brick and mortar store. We also live in a world were balancing work and family life is challenging. If we can save money by not going shopping outside the house, dealing with traffic, and paying for parking it saves time too.

People seem to order everything online today from furniture, prescriptions, clothes, glasses, food, and even leash’s for eyes etc… These items are supposed to be delivered in matter of days right to consumers doors. Our world has become a global shopping center right at our finger tips at home.

All you need is a credit card, computer, and a few minutes to fill-out the forms online. Sounds good right, but the reality is there are many downfalls shopping this way. Just like everyone else I can see the benefits of shopping this way, but we don’t always consider what happens if things go wrong.

Ordering from anther country is not always ideal when problems arise. What occurs if our items get stuck in customs, lost, or the company we bought from made an address error? Many online company’s use the national postal services to deliver parcels.

In Canada that is Canada post, based on the law only senders can start an investigation. If all we have is an email to contact the sender, who perhaps is in a different time zone, and even if we get a hold of them can they speak English? Based on the law if an address is wrong, the parcel will go back to company not even the sender can stop that.

I hear so many times that the parcels are not delivered to our doors. We will receive a delivery notice card must go to a post office for pick-up. To obtain our purchase, we need to present government issues identification to the postal clerk.

This is almost as inconvenient as having to go shopping locally. As a sidebar, I’m perplexed by people who order time sensitive items online like medication. In the event there are situations like I’ve mentioned above, this could be devastating to those consumers health.

I also believe the more we order online takes a real toll on our economy. Unemployment increases, businesses bottom lines are effected, and our products and services pricing surges. Let’s not forget our governmental tax revenues decreasing costing us more in long run.

Like mentioned at the beginning I get why shopping online is so appealing.

Personally, my belief is if we would lobby our governments to bring back a solid economy, worthwhile jobs, and lower taxes maybe consumers would see it more worthwhile to get in their cars supporting the local businesses.
