    Here are the replacement parts for the Essential Phone: NONE
    Taking apart the Essential phone is pretty similar to the Google Pixel. Except for the fact that there are no replacement parts available for this smartphone. If you buy a 'non mainstream' phone, make sure you are ready for the fact that if you break it... it is just... broken forever. It is hard to find replacement parts for non mainstream phones like the Essential phone.

It is a good phone for the price it is now. I just don't know why they thought selling the phone originally for $700 would be a good idea without "essential" features for a flagship such as water resistance, OIS, or even a working camera at launch.

This phone and the entire company is an example of investors throwing money at anything they think will become the next big thing. This company was valued at $1.2 billion before shipping a single product.

I don't know why you call it complicated when everything is well organized. Brackets are a measure of quality to ensure unfailing alignment/connection. HTC and LG phones from a few years back were complicated because of everything being done in layers that were difficult to get back together once opened up. The Essential Phone is a dream compared to those, haha.

I contacted Essential to ask about authorized battery replacement center recommendations. That's because I heard about the parts not being readily available. This is the response I got: ________________ Hello, Thank you for reaching out!  The battery is not replaceable in itself due to the way the phone is designed.

You only ever really need to mmaayyyybe change is the screen and the battery, which are both very easy to swap out. The screen is tough to get off but nowhere near as difficult as this video makes it seem. Lots of negativity surrounding this phone because of the competition. Also, replacement screen is only $70. I had to replace mine and opted to do it myself over paying essential $200 for another phone. Awesome Pixel 2xl/Oneplus alternative with better design and screen. Also has awesome xda dev support along with Android P working flawless

You seem like a dick about the phone. It has IP54 rating, so you're dead wrong about that. Also it has replacement parts available now. Teardown doesn't matter much, re-assembly is where things are at.

Hey Zack, do you think it's possible to add a headphone jack to this phone? Notice the extra plastic to the left of the speaker on the bottom. I think it is possible. But if it means you actually have to take out the whole speaker for a headphone jack, I'd do that and just play normal sound out of the earpiece
