The Essential phone has been a bit of a let down. They started out by overcharging for the phone and then doing a terrible job of getting the device shipped for the few hundred people that actually did pre-order the phone. The phone saw a price drop to $499 several weeks ago making it a more palatable purchase. Last week we saw the phone drop down to $449 which seemed to suggest the drop under $500 wasn't enough to get the phone moving.
For Cyber Monday the phone will only cost $399 and Essential will even throw in a 360 Camera mod for free. This is actually a great price for what you are getting with this phone. If you are looking for a flagship spec'd phone and aren't looking to spend a fortune or if you have been eyeing the essential phone now is the time to pull the trigger.
