Essential Phone drops from $1,050 to $650 in Canada

Late last month, Essential dropped the price of its flagship (and only) phone from $699 to $499 in the United States.

[Update: Price changes now live] Essential Phone gets a permanent price drop to $499

Besides the poor camera performance, perhaps the biggest complaint with the Essential Phone was the price.

[Deal Alert] HTC permanently drops VIVE VR to $599 ($200 off), probably to compete with Oculus

Devices like the Oculus Rift fill the middle tier, for those wanting a more robust ecosystem. Then at the top end, you've got the HTC VIVE. At $799 it's only ever been for those who are really serious about VR. HTC is hoping a price drop down to $599 will open it up to a wider audience.
