It’s difficult to buy a phone sight unseen. Though many of us strictly buy unlocked devices with no carrier bloat and delayed updates, carrier stores can be a blessing for testing a device before you buy it. If it doesn’t sit well in the hand, you won’t enjoy using it for the next year or two.
The fabled and controversial Essential Phone is finally coming to a physical store so you can play with it before you buy it. The device will be in Sprint stores this Thursday. Sprint is the exclusive US carrier for the device so you won’t be able to buy it at any other carrier.
If you want to pick it up for Sprint, the device is available for $14.58 a month for 18 months via Sprint’s leasing program, alongside the 3600-degree camera for $199.99 or $16.67 per month for 12 months.
