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

    AnonD-731363, 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 But enjoy this outdated gimmick.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.

      AnonD-731363, 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).

          AnonD-731363, 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.

I have secured my preorder for the Nothing phone.

                    AnonD-731363, 29 Jun 2022Man please educate us which phone have flagship grade specs... moreDoesn't Xiaomi throw 10 bit dolby vision screened phones at us with 60w or faster charging, top end SoC and generally picture leading cameras in for around that price? That or Sony now have phones that have again, better screen, cameras and generally way better battery too for similar pricing (400-500). Go for a year or 2 old flagship like the mi 11 or S20 series from Samsung and that'll get you QHD, dolby vision (on the mi) screen with class leading cameras and charging (mi again) with more features and a better SoC. Oneplus 8 pro/Oppo Find x2 Pro can be had for around that price too and far far better phones. Xiaomi Poco line also beat this phone for specs and price, the new f4 gt has gen8 SoC, cooler niche features like air triggers, better screen, battery, charging for the same price.

                      Not a Nothing hater, 29 Jun 2022People really out here spouting hate on a phone that hasn&#... morePeople have literally had hands on experience with it, tech Youtubers have played around, used the phone, shown off the pointless LED light show when getting a text and charging the phone, that's not an author's imagination it's literally how it looks on video, in hand (videos of how the LEDs work with custom notification sounds and lighting patterns). If leaks have happened they'll be from employers/employee directly, there's a reason "info leaks" happen, not by random chance. If every news outlet is giving the exact same specs too its not generally speculation, they'll have pre press release info on these devices to garner hype.

                      I mean with software now youve got so many choice of different UI choices and ways to make your phone behave I don't get why it matters about their own stockOS and interface, I doubt its going to be as smooth and optimised as other companies with millions to spend on that 1 department but could be like original Oneplus and just be a very fluid device.

                        Anonymous, 29 Jun 2022Just take a look at the Samsung a52s. Almost the same phone... moreMan A52s is year old phone and when it got released it costed almost 500. After a year this phone will cost maybe 350 same lke Samsung A52s.
                        You comparing apples and pears in this case pearns or Nothing phone is a win win.

                          BossOfThisGym, 28 Jun 2022Who's this product aimed at? A 778G for 400$, no headp... moreWho's this product aimed at? A 778G for 400$, no headphone jack, no card slot, probably ancient USB 2.0, questionable camera quality (cause of not a flagship soc). Only the design is good, but people who are worried about design will buy iPhones anyway

                          LOL man jokes of a day.
                          778G is fine SD 8+ gen 1 is a lot faster on the paper but i real life experience even games like fortnite or diablo or forza motosport will run maybe 0,2-0,5 seconds slower on a first run then with 8 or 12GB of ram phone will be as fast as any other phone with SD 8+ gen 1.
                          So bragging for 100 eur more expensive CPU which only at paper will be better is pointless i have to say.
                          For jack is an ancient garbage technology developed more 150 years ago since then it evolved many times and got better and better but it came to the point where it cant improve any further compared to wireless technology, Its like when Vynyl plates were replaced by cassetess then, video cassetess, CD, DVD, Blueray and now we have external storages and cloud store.
                          Jack is gone please step fom the dark age to future known as wireless technology.
                          Same goes for SD cards.
                          Since last poll from Sunday most users will find 64 or 128GB good enough and SD card is not that mandatory becasue most apps and photos will take usualy up to 32GB disk space so users will still have plenty left.
                          USB 2.0 is also good enough. For transfering photos ove cable to me is pointless whether i have to wait lets say 60 or 70 seconds difference is really small.
                          Camera will be awesome just like fresh new Nothing OS.,
                          And the SOC??? SD778 or SD7+ gen 1 compared to latest SD8+ gen 1 on paper difference is huge, but in real life usage waiting half second longer for running something like Fortnite, Diablo, or Forza Motosport and then the game will runs equally smooth on both phones Nothing phone and S22 ultra or apple 13 pro max for example makes no difference for me.
                          Still dont know why people bragging for much faster CPU on paper when in real life usage it will make zero difference. Apps such as Facebook ,Tik-Tok instagram, Viber, Twitter and many else will make no difference. Paying 100 more for example for having SD8+ gen 1 in this phone compared to SD 7+ gen 1 CPU is really waste of money. 12GB ram or even 8GB RAM is great enough.

                          I am not here to defend Carl Pei and Nothing brand i am here just to prove many people here are tottaly WRONG asking for something which aint mandatory, aint that much important. Many else things will be solved via updates.
                          Besides most people will swap their phones in 2-3 years.

                          End of my story.

                            goldrnr, 28 Jun 2022and again no 3,5 mm jack... that's a solid no for me then. Man jack is ancient garbage technology first come to the light of the world back in 1867 if i am correct.
                            Please step from the ancient dark age and step to the future of wireless technology because breaking cables and hole good for gathering dust and moisture arent impressive.

                                  And please educate us what you call low specs???
                                  Most phones for less or even more price dont have half as much as this phone.

Wireless audio is future and it always will be breaking cables are so odd and creepy.
                                        Same goes for SD card.
                                        Anyone can use cloud storage and 64 or 128GB is good for most users as last poll on sunday revealed.
                                        There is absolutely no need for having SD slot if most apps and some photos take maybe 32GB of your diskspace.
                                        1220HZ screen is great enough the camera too and the CPU as well.
                                        Running same app for example that new Diablo game or Fortnite or Forza motosport by 0,2 or 0,5 seconds slower compared to Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 makes no sense when game will go as smooth as it shoudl go. So in this case paying 100 more bucks for better CPU but having dfifferences only on paper is meaningless.
                                        For its price of 400 is definitely one of the best phones on the market and only fools and blind people dont see that.
                                        Also it comes with 120Hz screen not 90.
