Essential Phone Teardown - Complicated and Pointless

    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.

You videos are such a valuable resource. I'm hoping my next phone will last me 5+ years so keen to see videos on the new 845 phones like oneplus6, Xiaomi & Sony xz2 premium. IP68, screen & battery replacement ease are essential. Ant+ radio, desired & often included by Qualcomm

Jerry, I dropped my Essential Phone this morning. The top part of the screen is cracked. Luckily, the phone still works, even with the cracked screen but my beautiful Essential PH1 doesn't look so beautiful anymore. :-( What can I do about a screen replacement?

So, I didn't see you remove the ceramic back. I was thinking.....if I guy had 2 phones one with a bad screen and one with a bad logic board....could he say....go thru the back of the one with the good screen with a zip tool and save the screen? I know, the bezel is titanium but diamond bits ought to do the job, maybe?

No replacement parts anywhere? That means it's impossible to repair this one unless you have a spare. I found my earpiece cover got damaged easily. Not the best phone imo.

So many comments about how "trashy" the Essential Phone is... As an owner of this phone, I don't see how people can be so picky about it.. And all the things that people are trash talking are such excusable things: LCD screen not having the capabilities of AMOLED, Camera range getting a little dicey (Been fixed a little too), notch, no headphone jack? Really they're such minor inconveniences, if you even want to call them that. It's a great phone, it feels premium, it's running next to stock Android, And it's got all the storage I can ever need. And the deal for it was killer. If anything there are those few times when you're like "ugh where's my Bluetooth headphones?" but it's so minorly inconvenient.. not talking to anyone specifically, but people should grow up.

With the lifespan of phones, I don't think a separate USB port is necessary. I mean, I use my phones 2-3 years, and I've never had issues with anything except 3.5mm jacks.

Jerry maybe there are so many brackets and tape over the connectors because like you said, it can not be opened, so when other phones are dropped, and a connector unclip you can repair that, and they put those to be sure that doesn t happen. Thank you so much for quality content.

Shitty design, big, bulky, poorly engineered. No wonder they halved the price, I bet they still struggle finding someone to buy it. What a scam? How is this essential? Essentially against any good principle in this world, that is.

FYI, SEND it back to Andy Rubin & they promised to FIX it IF u will pay for the parts & labor (IF u did break it), or FREE if that's their fault. For the price we paid for 2 of ours, it's totally worth it for what it can offer.
