Anyone who sees the Essential Phone will agree at once that this is a premium device. It has a body made of ceramic and titanium. Essential Phone also flaunts a svelte profile at only 7.8 mm. But, rather sadly, the Essential phone seems not to be water resistant.

There are magnetic pins on the rear, key parts of a modular system. These enable you snap on add-ons for improved capabilities. The 5.7-inch display wraps around the selfie camera, leaving negligible bezels. It has a resolution of 1312 x 2560 pixels. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 atop the display.
