Narrow deep notch was a poor design choice

Which means it is probably over 100k by now? That's pretty high for a startup isn't it? What were expectations for sales figures? More or less than 1M?

Price drives everything. If you keep the same as Apple or Samsung's flagship then you can only daydream

Not at all surprised. I didn't get it even after Sprint offered to me for $9 per month. I'm more than happy with my LG V20

It's all about the price. At the right price point, I'd be willing to get my hands on one and ditch my S8. Personally love the design and stock Android. Still waiting... . Make me an offer I can't refuse.

Try selling 100k of ANYTHING to consumers and then maybe comment on the success of ? It’s a great start when competing with the behemoths.

Indeed it is a great device, but unfortunately in this segment, being the best device is not enough. Strong partnerships with channels and supporting them financially is vital to get the desired sell-out

More important than selling 100K of anything is to make money with the sales. Many brands sell millions and make no money. If Essential is making money, then is already a success. After all never said they want to be market leaders on volume share

BTW, OnePlus shipped nearly a million devices in its first six months in 2014, a totally unknown brand starting from scratch...
