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.

Mercedes clinches fourth straight F1 constructors’ championship

Why it matters to you

Mercedes is shaping up to be one of the great Formula One dynasties. Mercedes-Benz clinched its fourth straight Formula One constructors’ championship at the 2017 United States Grand Prix[1], held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. While rivals Ferrari and Red Bull Racing have put up more of a fight this year, Mercedes remains the dominant team in F1.

Formula One awards championships for both constructors (the teams) and drivers, and the drivers’ championship is still up for grabs as the season heads into its final three races. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton extended his lead by winning in Austin, but his main rival, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, finished second, giving him enough points to stay in the fight. Hamilton started strong, setting a track record and taking pole position in qualifying.

But Vettel managed to pass the British driver shortly after the start of the race. Vettel’s challenge only lasted six laps, though, at which point Hamilton took the lead and held onto it. Vettel fell further down the field, but managed to claw his way back to second by the end of the race.

Controversy surrounded the third spot on the podium. Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen (who started in 16th place), passed Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen on the last lap to take third place, but the the move was deemed illegal and Verstappen was hit with a five-second penalty. That awarded third place to Raikkonen.

Race stewards claimed Verstappen drove off the track while making his move, a decision Red Bull disputes. The penalty has also attracted criticism from outside the team. F1 legend and Mercedes team advisor Niki Lauda called it “the worst I’ve ever seen” in an interview with Racer[2].

While the outcomes of individual races are always unpredictable, Mercedes was always the team to beat. The German automaker has held a major advantage since current rules requiring hybrid powertrains were introduced in 2014. Mercedes has won the constructors’ championship for the past three years in a row, and has monopolized the drivers’ championship as well.

Hamilton won it in 2014 and 2015, while Nico Rosberg won in 2016, and retired shortly after[3]. Mercedes hasn’t had as tight a stranglehold on the championship this season as it did in the past three. Vettel led the drivers’ championship for much of the season, and Red Bull has won two races.

More consistent performance by Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas[4] allowed Mercedes to pull away from Ferrari and Red Bull in the constructors’ championship early on.

But Vettel could still win the drivers’ championship and break up the Mercedes monotony.
