TWRP AND ROOT ESSENTIAL PH-1

The Essential Ph-1 is a gorgeous Android phone with an edge-to-edge screen, clever modular design, and refreshingly clean software, but the camera is a real letdown. It takes a lot of guts to go up against Samsung and Apple these days if you’re a Smartphone startup. And it takes an equal amount of guts to release a phone with a key feature that is as rough as what you’ll find on the new Essential Phone. Andy Rubin is its founder and CEO, he helped create Android. The company also has several ex-Apple and ex-Google employees among its ranks. Investments already place Essential’s value at more than $1 billion.
