Nothing Phone (1) Review: It’s Something


The Nothing Phone (1), released in July 2022, has been a topic of much discussion. As the brainchild of Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus, this smartphone aims to disrupt the market with its unique approach. Let’s delve into the details and find out if it lives up to the hype.

Key Features

  1. Design: The Phone (1) boasts a comfortable and familiar design. Its flat sides, reminiscent of the iPhone 12 or iPhone 13, give it an industrial feel. The completely flat front and back look sleek, especially in the black variant. Nothing has used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for the display and the back panel, ensuring durability.

  2. Performance: Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, the Phone (1) delivers smooth performance. Whether you’re browsing, gaming, or multitasking, it handles everyday tasks admirably.

  3. Clean Android Experience: The Phone (1) runs on Android 12 with the Nothing OS 2.5.2. It offers a bloatware-free experience, which many users appreciate.

  4. Storage Options: You can choose from 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. Keep in mind that the Phone (1) doesn’t come with a charger or a case, unlike some competitors.

Pricing and Accessories

  • Base Variant: 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, priced at Rs. 32,999.
  • Mid Variant: 8GB RAM + 256GB storage, priced at Rs. 35,999.
  • Top Variant: 12GB RAM + 256GB storage, priced at Rs. 38,999.

Remember that the charger and case are sold separately. The Nothing 45W charger is available for Rs. 1,499, and the transparent case also costs the same. The price of the charger is reasonable, and if you add its cost, the Phone (1) effectively starts at roughly Rs. 34,500. The phone is available in white and black variants.

Display and Scratch Protector

The display on the Nothing Phone (1) is good, but the pre-applied scratch protector isn’t ideal. Consider investing in a tempered glass screen protector for added protection1.

Performance and Battery Life

Apart from initial software glitches, the general performance of the Nothing Phone (1) was very good in my experience. In my week of using it as my primary phone, I didn’t face any issues with calls, alerts, or display legibility outdoors.


The Nothing Phone (1) may not have flashy specs, but its attention to detail and clean software experience make it a worthy contender in its segment. If you appreciate simplicity and value, this phone is definitely something to consider.
