much ado about NOTHING? specs-wise and form-wise very similar to last year's Xiaomi 11 lite 5G NE.

    Ordinary, reiterative, ugly.

    Just a social media magnification.

          As a smartphone engineer after reviewing so much complaints of the CUSTOMERS there is NOTHING LEFT to say regarding this phone apart from its huge PRICE.

                  Already bought black version. Premium quality compared to most android phones.... Great price, good performance. Finally I don't need to spend 1-2k eur for good quality phone. Highly recommend.

                      I'm using this phone (8gb, 256 gb) since 3 days now and here is my initial review. FYI, my last 2 phones were oneplus 7 and OnePlus 7T. (8gb, 128 gb)

                      Nothing Phone looks and feels far more superior than OnePlus..It actually feels like a big iPhone 5s, which in my opinion, is the peak of apple mobile design.

                      Glyph interface is good and feels different, overall opinion on its practicality is subjective but it does feel exciting atleast initially..with subsequent updates, let's see how it can be made more relevant..

                      Speaking of the software, it is nearly stalk Android, Nothing should have borrowed a few convenient features from oxygen OS (Oneplus) but they haven't, there are a few things I miss, but these are extra utility features, again subject to personal preferences. For example, from the quick access pop down bar, I cant enable or disable Bluetooth, wifi etc with just a touch. Instead, on nothing, it opens it and you'd have to then choose what you wanna do..there is no screen gesture control for taking a screenshot, or turning on the torch..these are the things I miss from my OnePlus experience..

                      Performance wise, unless you're obsessed with beast performance, you will not notice any difference, in 99% of situations, the phone is just as fast as OnePlus (Real racing by EA games plays just as well on nothing as it did on 7T). That said, let me remind you 7T has a superior processor than Nothing but as I said, difference is negligible, but I won't say it doesn't exist..One thing is for sure though, you won't notice any lag what so ever that one does on Samsung phones..

                      Camera has never been my priority, every brand has nearly perfected it so I don't know if I have anything to add..Nothing has a better display than OnePlus 7T for sure though..
                      Overall, it is the most premium feeling Android phone I've ever used, in terms of a first attempt, nothing is much, much, much better than Oneplus' first attempt at making a phone..just a couple of updates later, Nothing would be a perfect phone, a STEAL at this price point..
