On the day that Google released Android P Developer Preview 3 (Beta 2), Essential moved its Essential Phone from an earlier developer preview to Beta 1. The update brings fresh Android P code, improved adaptive brightness range, the June security patch, and “various” fixes.
That’s great and all if you own an Essential Phone, but holy sh*t, why can’t we have nice things, Essential? Why can’t you make a new phone that fixes the issues from this first one? It would be a perfect phone with a new camera and display panel that functions properly. No one is doing updates as good as you and we want more. We want this hardware design in our hands and the software support that come with it. We need you as an option. You (almost) complete us. Please, give us more. PLEASE. PLEASE, WE BEG OF YOU.
