The Essential PH1 has several languages that you can use which makes it highly usable anywhere around the globe. If for some reasons the Essential PH1 smartphone you are using has a default language which you don’t understand too well, you can easily change it to something you can understand.
There are many languages supported on Essential PH1 including German, Korean among many others. Any language change also affects other applications, settings and third party apps as well. If you change the keyboard language separately, your other applications will not be affected by the language change.
This might sound a bit technical but once we get down to doing it, you will realize it is not as hard as it sounds.
