Basically good ol Pete made an iPhone clone for android (multiple Chinese firms already do this but OK), over hyped it, used stupid marketing ploys that worked years ago, sort of, but not now (say worked, Oneplus never really sold well ever, lots of people still don't know them). It's going to be a super niche phone with a tiny niche fan base and like essential and fairphone, be gone in a year or 2 or will just do a HTC.

If you want a phone that has some lighting up feature just get a gaming phone like RoG phones by Asus, they literally have lighting and dot matrix panels on the back, will have far better speakers, screen and battery life too.(you can get RoG 3 used for around 400 or less, still class leading in multiple ways). You want a unique looking phone then go foldable or again Chinese brand with UV light changing coloured backs or that use ceramic (most premium). Only positive is LED's in the back of your phone to make it look identical to an iPhone with a magsafe case on, I'd be surprised apple don't sue them.

    CptPower, 29 Jun 2022Man jack is nothing but old ancient technology worth retire... moreHow about we skip the overused "audio jack/SD card is dead" argument and focus instead on what Carl Pei said, which was that he'll bring something different to the sleepy Android market.

    And what makes the Android phone market sleepy? The same phones using the exact same spec formula. It's become very predictable that most phones with a chip weaker than a SD778 still have the 3.5mm jack and SD card slot, while phones with a SD778 or better will lose it.

    To me, the predictability is what makes the market "sleepy" and so I thought Carl was going to "wake up" the market by surprising us with a higher-end device that still kept the jack and SD card slot. It might sound silly, but that's what my logic was.

    Realistically I like this phone and the concept of it. I have nothing really against it, it's just the way Carl hyped this phone made me think he was going to appeal more to the masses. Now I know that was never his intention.

      CptPower, 29 Jun 2022Man for 400 bucks it have more specs than most other compet... moreOn second thought I will admit it's a decent price actually. There's some SD778 phones that are cheaper, but given the specialty of this phone, I'll say the price is fair.

                  Musa, 29 Jun 2022Copy cat of XRif you're talking about the iphone xr, you need to check your eyes. Yeah it has the same camera setup but many phones had that before iphone did? it has an rectangular shape, but then again aplle didnt copyright it. You can call it an copycat as much as you want but the truth is, this is an original phone with an original design.

                    Musa, 29 Jun 2022It is much better adding 120 euro to 400 euro and go to buy... moreor for the same price get a52s which has OIS and same processor with samsung software support and since the design got reused, finding accessories won't be hard

                      It is much better adding 120 euro to 400 euro and go to buy samsung S20 FE 2022. Because, S20 FE has Snapdragon 8 series not 7. Also, the camera of S20 FE has OIS ( optic image stability), which is necessary for good videos. Also, samsung gives 3 year android and 5 year security updates. In additon to these, it will be easy to find cases, screen protectors for S20 FE. If you think to use phone 3-5 years it is better choice to add 120 euro and buying S20 FE 2022.

                          Average Samsung sensor and no OIS. Nothing worth waiting for.

                            CptPower, 29 Jun 2022Man you funny which phone have better specs at you said 250... moreAny second hand flagship. But enjoy this outdated gimmick. You can even get a midrange phone that's better, for the same price as this and still get better hardware.

                              CptPower, 29 Jun 2022Man first thing 2 years old phones barely selling new only ... moreSo you keep saying no point to the gen 8 SoC but then trying to argue that a flagship with better hardware, better SoC that still beats the 778g isn't worth it because of software updates, which we have no idea even if this will get more than 1 year of updates. Or you go buy an iPhone 11 with 5 years of updates or Samsung s20/S21 that get atleast 3 years of updates and still is completely better phones in hardware than this at a better price, what logic at all do you use?

                              Also saying "according to gsmarena" well I can open Google in 3 seconds and check pricing on Google or any other search engine, which I have, and know same price points for all better phones than this with better features like the ones I mentioned (Oppo Find x2 Pro which my best mate uses has cameras on par with flagships now, a beautiful black back made out if ceramic with 512gb of storage and a snapdragon 865 which beats the 778g in every aspect yet its the same price).

                              Also why compare it with a 2022 device when again you could go to a multitude of phones for the same price (most people actually keep their phones for more than a year so most people still rock the S20 series, note 10/20, iPhone X and higher which have actual useable real world things like supiror battery or better and more useable screen but if you really need me to compare to a 2022 device I'll give you the same ones I said and more... AGAIN;
                              POCO F4/F4 GT, if you want another then;
                              Samsung A52s if you want another Samsung s21FE, Samsung A53 5g, A73, xiaomi redmi note 11 pro, I'm sure that's couple hundred cheaper and only real downside is the SoC, or you could have something from the Nord series from Oneplus or even phones from the Realme GT series. All better phones at cheaper or same price with useable features....and you tell ME to use my head, are you delusional or just ignorant because its one of them.

                              P. S. You want a phone to hold its value then go iPhone or Samsung, not a start up company (look at essential and fairphone).

                                Stef, 29 Jun 2022There's a huge market for android users that want uniq... moreWell i agree on that but i am happy with my phone so i did not upgrade.

                                  CptPower, 29 Jun 2022Man first thing 2 years old phones barely selling new only ... moreMy friend for 50€ more I can get in my country s21fe(January 2022) with flagship SD 888, better display (dynamic amoled), a software which have been tested for many years in the market (a new software atop of android if it is new as good as it may be it will have objectively bugs and problems because it is untested) that will be upgraded up to android 16(new Samsung policy) and really good cameras with zoom.

                                  Sure there are some heating problems and average battery due to SD 888 but in some years midrange SD 778g will slow down significantly more than this one.So there is no point to get Nothing phone (1) apart from the design. Maybe Nothing phone (3) or (4) will worth more since by then the company will get more mature and offers something more innovative.

                                  Also,many people despite the popular commercial advertisement don't change their phone every 2-3 years but look for a flagship-powerfull smartphone that will last them for 5 years(with battery change).There are other things to do in life than spending 300-400€ each and a while.

                                    Same android os..and same unoptimized apps from gplay..
                                    In Gplay half of the apps not optimized for A12.. Google should force the developer and clear half of the apps from Play store

                                      Anonymous, 29 Jun 2022Doesn't Xiaomi throw 10 bit dolby vision screened phon... moreMan first thing 2 years old phones barely selling new only used after someone stop being coward please.
                                      Second this is a 2022 phone so comare it with 2022 phone.
                                      S20 with no more updates to OS and last year of security updates impress noone.
                                      When this phone gets 2 years old it will be for sale for 250 euros which will be still awesome price for awesome device.
                                      According to GSMM Arena Sony 10 IV cost 699 dollars or 500 sterling punds which is more than 400 dollars price of this phone. Sony last year flagship came with 4500 mAh cell. This have 4000 which is more than enough where you see better battery i really dont know and for simmilar price. Comparing 700 dollar device VS 400 dollar device you realy are clouless do you???

                                      If you really want to tell something compare equal phones i mean 2022 with same android inside not something which will have nio more updates or only security ones.
                                      please, Please, PLEASE use your head sometimes.
                                      Cheers.
