The next device from Essential, led by the father of the Android system, which has become a controversial figure, is echoing online - and not necessarily for the right reasons.
It's no secret that smartphones have been growing in height in recent years, with screens breaking the 16: 9 aspect ratio that previously dominated the attempt to increase the display space available to the user without compromising the basic ergonomics of the device on its side - and some manufacturers Sony Who've already taken this fashion to an end with the use of 21 screens: 9 high (or long, if you prefer) unusually.
