Essential Phone vs. Samsung Galaxy S8 – Best Specs and Features Comparison

The creator of Android, Andy Rubin, came back this year with a new startup called Essential, and then made his way in the phone industry with an amazing phone which is also Essential. The phone contains the latest Qualcomm chipset, an edge-to-edge screen and a titanium frame. It sounds like Samsung Galaxy S8 has a serious competitor on the market right now. Let’s see the differences.

Inside the phones

Both have an amazing and powerful 4 GB RAM on a Snapdragon 835 chipset, even though we cannot see that on S8 because the phone is tuned to be efficient and not fast, so this gives Essential a great opportunity to use the 835 chip at maximum capacity and outrun the Samsung Galaxy S8.

When it comes to internal memory, Galaxy S8 has only 64GB. But Essential will be released with 128GB and will not have an expandable memory like S8.


Essential will have a 5.7-inch LCD panel that will be 2560 x 1312 with a 19:12 ratio and will the screen will be edge-to-edge. The front camera will be right in the top center of the screen, this giving a very interesting appearance.

At this moment Galaxy S8 has a 5.8 curved AMOLED (Samsung is calling it ‘infinity display’) that is much taller when we speak of other phones. The aspect ratio is of 18:5:9 with a 2960 x 1440 resolution and the curved edges make it very comfortable to hold in hand.

Essential has a very small chance to beat Samsung in this department given the fact that Samsung’s AMOLED is renowned for its quality.


Essential is planning to have two rear cameras with 13MP RGB, the thinnest dual sensor created to this point. While Samsung has only one 12MP camera on the rear but is has HDR and the colors are very accurate.
