The 3a is really a very good device for it's price ...

You made a good move there!

Same reason I bought an Essential Phone in 2018, its a perfect example of a nicely balanced Android device for not much money at all... and with updates until 2022 at least I'm happy for another couple of years. This is how Android should be, relatively cheap and with long updates!

It is a good one, although personally I would go for a nice condition used Pixel 2XL 128GB. It has a better SoC, screen, storage, speakers... just about everything and for about the same price or cheaper.

R.I.P,. my grouper.
Bought is (barely) used in 2014.
Last month started to freeze randomly.
Flash it back to factory, then back to this AOSP.
Week later, random freezing again.
Went ahead and formatted the three basic partitions in fastboot. Flashed AOSP again; worked for a few days, until I started to add more apps.
Now I can only boot it in to fastboot and or TWRP. Can't format system nor userdata.
Thank you, @AndDiSa, for keeping this ancient tablet alive for this long.

Bad news for you: "Essential shuts down: No more PH-1 updates, No GEM phone" https://www.xda-developers.com/essen...-more-updates/

This shows that a company which only updates the old phones and does not sell new ones won't stay long in this market. Too bad.

Will you switch to a Pixel now? Maybe someone will build a custom ROM for the Essential Phone l, with the help of the tools mentioned in the XDA news article.

It would be great to get rid of her. I suspect that the problem is due to the inability of the Wi-Fi driver to correctly process a significant change in the speed of the mobile channel, which is heard through the Wi-Fi point.

After installing the pre-Christmas update, problems with working via Wi-Fi mobile phone on Tilapia disappeared. If the author has not corrected anything, then Google spoils the communication module from time to time. I 'm afraid to install further versions with their security updates.

Dirty flashed (grouper) and whilst it all worked, my Nexus was rather laggy. As I'd dirty flashed last month's update, I figured maybe it was time for a spring clean. So I wiped, clean flashed and re-installed everything from scratch. All okay (touch wood). Thanks again @AndDiSa

Wiping and clean flashing does make the update process longer but I do think it's worth the extra effort.

Clean flashing is always preferred and always worth it on any Android device.

Just gotta remember to back-up first.
