    such high hopes, such big dreams but Essential only shipped 88,000 phones in 2017.

    I tend to agree but if it does not sell either, I believe it will be the end for that phone and possibly the company.

    seems to me, most who wanted the essential would already have them. it would be better to sell the different colors from the start than wait.
