But in the meantime, the Essential Phone is still on sale through the company's website for $499. A spokesperson for the company said in an e-mailed statement to Bloomberg that it was a hard decision to make, adding that they are sorry for the impact on their colleagues who are leaving and are doing everything they can to help them with their future careers. This was thanks to Essential founder Andy Rubin given his time co-creating Google'sAndroid. It received mixed reviews, with most critics citing its low quality and missing features such as a lack of waterproofing and poor resiliency to damage. However, the layoffs at the company signal that Essential is moving away from selling a typical Android handset. By comparison, over 400 million other smartphones sold in just the last three months of 2017. At the time, Rubin said that his company had "multiple products in development", including mobile and home hardware. This in turn caused the once-$1-billion-company to withdraw its second flagship smartphone early in 2018. Rubin said the relationship was consensual and didn't involve someone who reported to him.
