Deal: Get the Essential Phone for Just $250 During Amazon Prime Day

In case you weren’t already aware, Amazon is hosting its annual Prime Day today exclusive to Prime members that gets you Black Friday-like discounts on tons of products. Of course, if you’re reading Matridox, there’s a pretty good chance you’re interested in smartphone discounts, and boy is there a good one going on right now…

Over on, during Prime Day, you can pick up the Essential Phone for just $249.99. In case you aren’t aware, the PH-1 used to cost $699 before the price was cut to $499. That cost was already really low for the device which ships with high-end specifications and a great build quality. Now, you can get it for nearly half the cost of the mid-range Moto Z3 Play.

For reference, the Essential Phone ships with a 5.7-inch edge-to-edge display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 3040mAh battery, dual rear cameras, a USB-C port, and a ceramic build with titanium sides. It also comes with Android 8.1 Oreo and will even get an upgrade to Android P. Basically, you can’t get a better phone for $250.

If you’re looking for a good, cheap phone, I wouldn’t miss out on this deal. It’s a bit too hard to pass up. You can pick up the Essential Phone in Black Moon, Halo Gray, and Pure White for the same low price until Prime Day is over at this link.
