Nothing Phone 1 Review

Nothing Phone 1 – Overview 

The Nothing phone (1) is a reliable Android phone from a young firm that displays software development and offers performance that many people in the mid-range would like. The reverse wireless charging is a little more unusual at this price range, and the battery life is decent.

Although Nothing’s goal of providing two acceptable cameras isn’t actually achieved, you do get a competitive primary camera and avoid the abundance of subpar lenses that many competitors promote, which is a plus.

Detailed Review of Nothing Phone 1

Nothing Phone 1 Display and Operating system

The 2400 x 1080 resolution OLED display on the Nothing Phone 1 is sharp and quick. With a full brightness of 1,200 nits, it is plenty bright during the day. Depending on the material you’re watching, the refresh rate might fluctuate between 60 and 120Hz.

The screen is decent but not flawless. With pixels lighted at varied intensities, you may see minor uneven patches and a faint green tinge when the brightness is at its lowest. This is even more obvious by the fact that dark mode is turned on by default right out of the box. The difficulty with OLED technology in this price bracket, though, is that I’ve seen it far more clearly on other phones.

Nothing Phone 1 Camera 

Although Nothing chose to go with two 50MP cameras, I was first extremely thrilled with them. However, the longer I try the Nothing Phone, the more it becomes apparent to me that it gives the typical middling performance. 

A 50MP Sony IMX766 camera will serve as the primary sensor and a 50MP Samsung JN1 sensor will serve as the ultra wide. There is a 16MP Sony IMX471 camera on the front.

Nothing Phone 1 Performance 

The Snapdragon 778G+ provides the Nothing Phone 1 with a sufficient amount of performance. Although I’m sure Nothing could have squeezed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 out of a few milliseconds of quicker app load times and somewhat better webpage performance, it is unquestionably quick enough for any common chores you can throw at it in the near future. I only regularly get a glitch when the phone starts up from standby. 

Every time I unlock my phone, the lock screen takes an extra second to reply. When I double touch a notice on the lock screen to open it immediately, the UI even occasionally completely crashes and redraws itself.

Nothing Phone 1 Software 

The company’s interpretation of Android 12 is dotted with the dot-matrix “Nothing” typeface that debuted with the company’s first pair of headphones. But this “bespoke” vision of Google’s mobile OS doesn’t really offer anything new. 

Other than the Glyph-related ringtones, certain monochrome backgrounds, and distinctive widgets in the drop-down menu, Android is much how you’re used to seeing it.

Nothing Phone 1 Battery life and performance 

During the first day or two I used the phone, I had significant standby battery depletion, but this was swiftly resolved by two software upgrades, bringing my device up to Nothing OS 1.0.2. Since then, battery life has been reliable and constant, with me still having some power at the end of the day after seeing a screen for roughly five hours. 

There isn’t much to complain about in this area when paired with quick 33W charging, which charges the Phone 1 to 50% in 30 minutes

Nothing Phone 1 Sound and Speakers 

The ear speaker serves as a second speaker in the Nothing Phone (1) to produce a stereo illusion. The impact is not totally noticeable, however, due to the fact that it is much weaker than the primary speaker. 

The audio output is well-balanced and of very good caliber. There is no audible crackling or shaking, although at full volume, some high frequencies are a touch too exaggerated for our taste.

Nothing Phone 1 Usability 

Nothing Phone 1 has a very similar design to early iPhone models, therefore it appears to be highly expensive. Additionally, the body is constructed from aluminum and other elements to provide total safety.

If you simply use social media sometimes and make occasional phone calls, you may choose Nothing Phone 1 in terms of long-term usage.


What is the screen size of Nothing Phone 1?

Nothing Phone 1 screen size is 6.55 inches.

What is the processor of Nothing Phone 1?

The Snapdragon 778G Plus from Qualcomm serves as the Nothing Phone 1’s CPU.

Nothing Phone 1: Is it worth purchasing?

Yes, if you’re searching for a mid-range phone with a distinctive design and all the essential features, and if it’s offered where you live. As the first phone from a brand-new startup, the Phone 1 is one of the most intriguing sub $500 phones available right now and does a lot of things well. 

But it’s obvious that the distinctive rear design is what’s getting the most attention. When this is taken away, what’s left is a really basic mid-range phone that must compete in a very crowded market.

Nothing Phone 1 Review – Wrapping up 

The Nothing phone (1) is an attractive mid-range handset with competitive pricing and performance. The Glyph Interface is interesting and a talking point, but we haven’t really found it to be especially useful. 

The camera only really provides one lens that is to be excited about. Although this phone has a clean software design and a generally nerdy appearance, it offers nothing to challenge the existing system.
