Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone – after a brief hiccup with its shipping timeline – is finally available for pre-orders. The device has started to receive early reviews which are terming the phone better than expectations.

Essential Phone has a lot to offer, including an edge-to-edge display and a modular system that lets you attach different accessories to it, but there are few notable omissions as well, such as the lack of a 3.5mm jack, wireless charging, and water resistance.
