Nothing Phone 1 everything you need to know about the phone

Nothing Phone 1

Nothing Phone 1, the first phone launched by the British company owned by entrepreneur Carl Pei, has changed the dynamics of the smartphone market. It is a phone of the highest category with excellent specifications at a reasonable price. This has surpassed a number of Chinese companies and Samsung, the world's largest maker of smartphones.

GSMArena reports that Nothing Phone 1 has a transparent back panel and a wireless charger. Designed to mimic the design of Apple's flagship iPhone, with a metal frame and LED lighting. It also has a battery charge percentage indicator, alert notifications, and a synchronized ring tone with LED lighting. The LED lights are also waterproof and dustproof.

Nothing Phone 1. Design

The first smartphone by the company, the Nothing Phone 1 needed to make an impression. The expectations for the design were particularly high, so we are happy to see that Nothing made an impressive first impression!

In addition to the see-through back glass, Glyph LEDs are probably going to remain for at least a few generations.

Additionally, the Phone 1 features two flat Gorilla Glass 5 pieces sandwiched between an aluminum chassis and frame, as well as the usual high-quality build. Despite the whole thing being IP53-rated, it will not be damaged by dust or light splashes. Ideally, there would have been complete waterproofing, IP67 or above, but that is not possible. There is no flagship in this case, after all.

There are two colorways available for the Nothing Phone 1, and we have them both in stock. Obviously, there is a big difference in the backside design. There is a matte finish on both variants and a dark gray color for the frame.

Besides the frame's flatness, the Phone 1 is able to stand by itself, like some iPhones. Even though it's not the most important feature, the device's design speaks well for itself.

From the front, it is obvious that the Phone 1 resembles a modern OLED iPhone. Flat and flush with the frame, Gorilla Glass 5 is completely scratch-resistant. Its bezels are uniform, and it uses the same flexible OLED technology as Apple to reduce the size of its bottom bezel by bending the display controller under itself. There is only one real difference between the iPhone X and the iPhone XS - the hole punch camera.

Optical fingerprint scanners placed under displays have never been used before. Our phone's location is a little lower than most phones, but we found it comfortable. The scanner offers notably high speed and accuracy, as well as being always on. Right above the screen, you can see a small outlet with a barely visible grille right next to the top part of the frame. Located here is one of the stereo speakers, which functions as an earpiece as well. During calls, you won't have to worry about mistouches due to the proximity sensor hidden within the black bezels.

Interesting things happen at the back. Most of the components are visible through a transparent Gorilla Glass 5 panel. This allows the Glyph Interface lights to shine through as well.

It is mostly window dressing that makes the straightforward design stand out. Plastic covers cover most of the phone's internals, so you can't actually see what's inside. One of the few visible components is the induction coil used for the two-way wireless charging and a ribbon cable, which may be used for the battery.

In terms of actual components, you might be disappointed if you expected to see a motherboard, battery, or speaker. There is no end to the oddly shaped pieces.

There is a subtle difference between the black and white versions, but the white version seems more active and flashier. There's something charming about both of them; you just have to choose the one that you prefer.

Glyph Interface lights need to shine through the transparent back for practical reasons. It is possible to control the four LED sets through software (more on that later) and they are primarily used to indicate the status of calls, notifications, and charging. The lights can also be used to fill the camera with light. It is not recommended to keep the phone near your eyes when the LEDs are about to light up, since they are extremely bright. It is noticeable that some of the strips have yellowed, and their color is somewhat inconsistent. Their blinks are usually very rapid, so they do not usually make a noticeable difference.
