I normally like to wait at least a year to give a smartphone the old "review re-do" treatment, but this is a special case. The Andy Rubin-led startup Essential changed everything when it slashed the price of its namesake flagship by $200 barely two months after launch, instantly instantly transforming the Essential Phone from an overpriced mobile with a terrible camera into a genuine bargain … with a terrible camera.

Let's find out if the deep discount combined with a little sideloading can make the PH-1 a late-season winner! Revisit Android Central's Essential Phone review for some context, then hit up MrMobile's Essential Phone Review Re-Do for the November update!
