          Perfect at what? It's a phone like all the others in its range, better in some aspects and worse in others...
          It's called Nothing Phone, not Special One.

                Eric20, 11 Aug 2022The argument is about false advertising, not whether 1200 n... moreFair, fair. I see your point.

                This is probably gonna be a sting for Nothing, as they've been caught lying. I doubt we should trust Nothing to be honest anymore. Especially in the context of Apple's "6x optical zoom" or something else like Huawei's moon mode.

                But this is a win for us. It's probably the main contributing factor for Nothing's good battery life. Screen brightness power consumption behaves a lot like decibels. A slight value increase means an exponential increase in power consumption/perceived loudness.

                  Make your own phone if you are unhappy i am posting real facts.

                  By the way high phone brightness affect your battery.
                  But i know you love to charging your phone 2-3 times a day.

                    Still making phones with microUSB in 2022, also devices without NFC and ancient gorilla 3 when even $150 phones should have gorilla 5.
                    Tax evasion in India.
                    Highest temperatures while charging.

                    Man like every other brand whats your problem???
                    And NFC and Gorrila Glass is just a gimmick.
                    Tossing my card from my phone book case takes me 3 seconds time.
                    And buying a panzer glass screen protector is way cheaper than costly GG Glass on a main screen which does same job like screen protector for 0,50 cents.
                    Stop trying to be clever if you arent.
                    There is no need for useless gimmicks.
                    If you dont like make your own phone and stp acting like donkey.

                                    Just like having FHD or 1440p screen and one capable of 8K.
                                    On a 6 inch screen it makes zero duifference for human eye.
                                    This going to be same.
