To me this is a loaded question because it is built around what one expects and needs the most out of their device. Some people just need a phone in which they can talk on. Others need a device to support text and data. Then there are those of us who needs a device for work, play, personal engagement with friends and so on.
No matter what you expect out of a device. The Essential is a device that has great potential to meet the needs of any user.
For me, it is all about the quality and how well the device can perform throughout my business work day, school and life. I appreciate the Titanium build of the device because it feels solid and the premium feel to the touch is something I didn’t expect at first. Like many other people have expressed their concerns with weight and the slick feel of the device, I find it has a great balance of beauty and durability.
Having a device that can stand up to the accidental drops on concrete, hardwood/ceramic/Tile floors is essential to me. Even scratches and dents can be an eye sore for me, but the Essential is more durable than those other devices which are made of aluminum and plastic.

The device is a perfect fit in the hand and easy to manage with one hand and a thumb.
