Welp, the USB C port on the Essential phone is bad and I needed a phone right away. For $399 at Best Buy, I picked up a Galaxy S8 and I am content with it, I just need to turn off Bixby. I was tempted to buy the $599 S9+ from the Microsoft Store, that thing was fast and lag free but, $200 less to spend is better for me. Anyone else have suggestions on making this phone even better? Thanks.
