You don't need to spend four figures on a new flagship smartphone, because the Essential Phone is now $650.00 (previously $1050.00) at TELUS, for a total savings of $400.00!

The new lower price is permanent and TELUS is the exclusive provider of the Essential Phone in Canada, but the phone comes unlocked and is compatible with other major networks in Canada.

Sporting an edge-to-edge screen with a sleek titanium and glass design, the price cut is notable as the Essential Phone was launched less than three months ago and positions itself alongside other flagship devices like the iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel 2. Other features include:

  • 5.71" edge-to-edge display with 2560 x 1312 resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage
  • Dual 13.1MP rear cameras and 8MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n
  • Android 7.1 Nougat operating system
  • No headphone jack, but a USB-C to headphone jack adapter is included

    • That isn't bad for no term pricing. Close to the one plus 5 price range.

    • Came in here too post this deal. Was considering buying from Amazon.com but at $650 with proper Canadian warranty this is a steal.

    • Really close to pulling the trigger on this instead of a Pixel 2.

      I'd go with the Essential if I needed a new phone right now. I couldn't justify the price difference for the Pixel 2.

    • Need to wait for LineageOS support (if ever). Otherwise, Oneplus 5 is probably a better option for most.

      ???

      Not everyone wants to install a custom ROM.

    • The "no headphone jack" trend really is a pain in the ass.

      I've not heard of any battery issues with this phone?

      They have a ton of funding, its just bumps in the road.

      I should have said "better option for me".

      The founder and CEO is the creator of Android. Worth over $100 million himself.

      Investments from Amazon, Foxconn, and others.

      Chances are they release a few more phones.

      I actually just got one and woke up with it at 25% after being plugged in all night.

      Is this what you were referring to?

    • What stops me is use of an LCD screen. I realize the Pixel 2 XL's [p]OLED screen has issues, but generally OLED is far superior in terms of contrast, lowest brightness (really helpful when using in dark settings) and power usage (eg for always-on status). It's not important for me, but you can't even use LCD screens for Daydream headsets. It's too bad because the market really needs a good near-stock Android handset with a consumer focus in this price range.
