Nothing Phone 1 Review: A New Look at Smartphones

Nothing Phone 1 review – smartphone enthusiasts will be happy to buy this latest phone. We rarely see the same or even greater excitement for the release of a mid-range phone – Nothing Phone 1. Nothing, a technology company founded by Carl Pei, a former OnePlus co-founder, has just released its first smartphone, Nothing Phone 1.

This has been a highly anticipated smartphone for several reasons, the main one being that Carl Pei, the company’s CEO, helped shape OnePlus from an enthusiast-only entry-level brand into one of the most popular smartphone brands today. Nothing’s first smartphone has sky-high expectations. The Phone 1 has finally arrived after a seismic buildup in recent months with multiple leaks and teasers.

The aim of the Phone 1 is to provide a clean and simple Android experience with a unique hardware twist via the quirky notification lights. I spent some time with the phone 1 and here are my first thoughts on it.

The Nothing Phone 1 is packaged in a thin box with a cropped image of the back of the phone on it. The phone comes in matching colors in white and black. The phone 1, a safety guide, a USB Type-C to Type-C cable, and one of the coolest SIM ejector tools I’ve seen are all included. According to this Nothing Phone 1 review, as expected, the phone does not come with a charger. Nothing also sent me a clear case for the Phone 1, which is available separately.


Let’s talk about the most distinguishing feature of the Phone 1: the back panel. You’ve probably seen this phone corner the most, as nothing has been used in all of its marketing material. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of the whole transparent design, but I do like how neatly all the components are tucked away. The black variant looks much better than the white one in my opinion because the transparent effect is more subtle, and I also prefer the dark shade of the aluminum frame.

This transparent back isn’t just for show, though; it serves a purpose. Nothing references the Glyph Interface like the array of light strips beneath the glass back panel. There is a special menu in the software for it, where you can set different light patterns for ringtones and notifications, and check the battery level while the phone is charging. The Glyph interface can even be used as a fill light for the rear cameras, which is cool.

The Glyph interface seems useful if you’re in the habit of laying your phone face down on a surface, which I don’t. The lights are extremely bright, although the intensity can be adjusted, and some of the flashing patterns can be distracting. We’ll see how useful this is after using the phone for a longer period of time in Nothing Phone 1 review. Another thing to keep in mind is that to see the lights, you’ll probably need to use this phone with a clear or translucent case, or without it.

On/off and volume buttons give good feedback

The Nothing Phone 1 does a lot of things right for a premium mid-range smartphone. The flattened aluminum frame feels smooth and the rounded edges make it easy to hold. It is quite thin at 8.3mm but it is quite heavy at 193.5g. The power and volume buttons provide good feedback and are located on either side of the frame, making them easier to use with one hand. The dual SIM tray, a USB Type-C port, and a speaker are all on the bottom. The earphones act as a second speaker for stereo sound. The Nothing Phone 1 has an IP53 rating, which means it can withstand light splashes of water and dust. An IP rating is becoming more common in mid-range phones, and while it’s not as comprehensive as an IP67 or IP68 rating, it’s still something, and I’m glad nothing has been skimped on it.

Display of Nothing Phone 1

The Nothing Phone 1 has a bright and sharp 6.55-inch display with excellent color reproduction thanks to the OLED panel. The screen has a 10-bit color depth, a Full HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. This phone also has a capacitive in-display fingerprint sensor which has performed admirably so far. The screen is HDR10+ compliant and has a typical brightness of 500 nits (1,200 nits peak). The front and back of the Phone 1 are made of Corning Gorilla Glass.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, which can be found in phones like the Motorola Edge 30, powers the Nothing Phone 1. (Review). The Phone 1 is available in three configurations – 8GB RAM + 128GB storage for Rs. 32,999, 8GB RAM + 256GB storage for Rs. 35,999 and 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for Rs. 38,999. LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage are used. Nothing also offers discounts to customers who pre-order the phone.

The phone 1 has a battery of 4,500 mAh and fast wired charging via USB PD up to 33 W. There is 15 W fast wireless charging and 5 W reverse wireless charging. Wireless charging is a feature that is still relatively uncommon in the mid-range, so the Phone 1 should take advantage of it.

Nothing OS powers the Nothing Phone 1, which is essentially Android 12 with a few tweaks like a custom icon pack, additional wallpapers and widgets, and of course custom ringtones and notification sounds for the Glyph interface. Also, nothing guarantees three years of Android updates and four years of security updates, which is encouraging.

Nothing Phone 1 camera

Nothing has gone crazy with the cameras, and there are only two on the back of the Phone 1, but they are high quality. The primary camera uses a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 optically stabilized sensor. We’ve seen positive results from this sensor in a number of flagship phones, so I expect the same from the Phone 1. The second camera is a 50MP ultra-wide sensor that uses the same Samsung JN1 sensor as the OnePlus 10 Pro (review). This sensor also has autofocus, so it can function as a macro camera. The selfie camera features a 16 megapixel Sony IMX471 sensor, which has appeared in numerous OnePlus flagships over the years.

Nothing phone 1 review and verdict

Judging by the specs of Nothing Phone 1 alone, this phone appears to be a solid mid-range offering. Wireless charging should give it a competitive edge, and the Glyph notification system, while a bit gimmicky in my opinion, sets it apart from any other phone on the market. In addition to good hardware, Nothing must also provide good after-sales service in order to compete with other established players. According to the company, it has service centers in more than 220 cities across India, which is a good start.
