I finally got my my new phone after ordering it on December 2nd.
I should have stayed on the phone probably and paid $10 for shipping. So it goes.
It’s doing all of the updates now. I played with it a little earlier downloading some apps and my favorite game of the moment Pinball Deluxe which played very well. The apps also downloaded super fast. I think I will be very happy.
And my slower and older Galaxy 4 still can do stuff on Wi-Fi.
And since the Essential had a C type charger, I think I will use the alarm on my Galaxy until I buy some more chargers. The Essential also seems to charge much, much faster. And I got it for $5/month for 18 months with $25 down with a Black Friday special $145 total. It’s back to $30/month now, and closer to $540. I’m not totally sure, it could be a 24 month lease which would be much worse after the sale.
I’m happy and I will be happier I think as I play with it more.
