    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.

I hate they build bottom board one piece with upper, replacing port & sim tray will be pain in the butt, when the phone bend in right side, it will be unrepairable

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.

Might even get it since I really like the design but it's almost two times more expensive in Europe than in USA. Taking about fairness...

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

I don't know why the people mostly YouTuber hate this phone . In this country a lot person upgrade the phone every 6 months . So what is the point worry about battery replacement or charging port . Is the phone broke buy a new and that is . Please don't make a money destroy a good device point less review.

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.

If you are thinking about buying one of these phones, just don't. My boss got one and it definitely did not live up to his expectations. It does worse with 2 cameras than my Nexus 6p does with one.

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

This screen is easy to take off. My panel broke from the inside (as in the front glass was perfect but lcd was broken. I took mine off without breaking the screen and replaced it. I imagine they didn't at the time of the video but aliexpress do now sell replacement lcd's.

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

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.
