Nothing (1), anyone got it (or may get it)?


Recommended Posts

Their pre-release campaign & design leaks worked very well, created lots of buzz on all social nets and tech sites, the name suddenly popped up 'everywhere'.

Then when it arrived looks like it's not deemed just an interesting gadget, the reviews are seemingly all positive, holding it's ground vs many of the best of the midrange class. Example https://www.gsmarena.com/nothing_phone_1-review-2453.php


Am positively intrigued, something new & fresh among the otherwise stagnated design of all other brands.

hmmm....im willing to be enlightened as to what exactly makes the nothing phone so special, aside from clever marketing and hype train going choo choo 🤔 admittedly, the design is unusual and something that stands out in a crowd, but thats not enough for me to pull my wallet out....

any special software functionality and/or update policy? accessories? support for custom roms?

C. Pei aims to create an active community around his brand, like he did with oneplus.

Now needs to fix production defects and get OS bugs ironed out.

Personally, am always using very solid wallet covers, so that phone won't be for me whatever of interest the rear 'glyph' lights could do.
I do like the iphonesque design.

So far it's nothing (no pun intended) impressive really.

But, it's their first phone, so they might produce something more competitive in the future.

I personally don't like the "iphonesque design" - never been a fan, probably never will be :D
