Nothing Phone (1) Review

Written by Rahul Makwana


Nothing Phone (1) price in India starts from Rs 32,999 for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage in India.


It has a 50MP primary sensor + 50MP ultra-wide lens while there is a 16MP selfie shooter.


The images also come out good but still, I noticed that the sensor is trying to boost the colors a little bit,

just like all the other smartphones but the good thing is, the image doesn’t come out that saturated like Xiaomi, RealMe, or Vivo Smartphones.

The details are there even under the low lights and Nothing has worked hard on the night mode, the night images also come out good.

The front camera also justifies the price tag, no issue with the dynamic range, it captures clear images. Overall, yes, Under Rs 40000, the Nothing Phone (1) has a good camera setup and you won’t be disappointed with its performance.

The phone comes with a 6.55-inches flexible 120hz OLED Display. Nothing has used a good quality panel, so whether you want to play games or watch movies, you will have the best experience.


The Snapdragon 778+ is not made for heavy gaming, its balanced processor, its decent SoC for balanced usage, so don't buy this device for heavy gaming.


The front and back are protected with corning gorilla glass 5 while the frame is made out of Aluminum. The device also feels premium in the hands.


By the way, the phone has 14 5G Bands,, Stereo Speakers, NFC support, 4x4 MIMO Carrier aggregation and wireless charging.

Nothing has promised the 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security updates.


This will be the selling point of Nothing Phone (1), the device doesn’t come with single third-party applications and there are no ads in the UI either.

We all know that Snapdragon 778+ is battery efficient processor, so the device will last for a long time. Also, Nothing has used the near Stock Android which will help a lot in battery life.

Battery Life

The stereo speakers are loud too, whether you’re in a crowded place or at home, you will be able to hear everything clearly.

Audio Quality

In direct words the Nothing Phone 1 is a balanced smartphone, so don't buy it for heavy gaming.
