Announced during the first half of the year, but only recently available for purchase, the Essential Phone is a flagship device with steep price tag though not as high as some other flagship-level smartphones on the market. As a smaller company trying to get a foothold in the market, Essential is not in a position to be able to do things like BOGO offers. If you are interested in the Essential Phone but have not been able to deal with the regular $699 price tag for the unlocked version, some relief is available thanks to a special $100 off deal Best Buy is running at the moment.
Essential just released a new white version of the Essential Phone. Unfortunately, that version is not eligible for this special Best Buy deal. The good news is that the black version that Best Buy has on sale is unlocked and will work with any carrier.
In general we found the Essential Phone to be a solid offering even if the company behind it seems to be stumbling a bit. Sales have also been disappointing according to reports, so deals like this one may help and we should probably expect to see more on the way.
