    The buttons must be on one side, otherwise it is uncomfortable. The fingerprint scanner should be in its place, closer to the center of the screen! 🤦🏻‍♂️
    If the manufacturer does not understand such basic things, then you can expect many more surprises. I think it's an antique USB 2.0...

            Nothing, 18 Jul 2023All phones nowadays use USB-C And the nothing phone suppor... moreYes i never ever understood the Xiaomi hype

            Interesting I the early days where it was cheap.

            Trying their "os" a few times, well, what is that, I can't even find a word to say it. And the more is "updated" the worst it gets. Also privacy, calling home kernel, ads, reliability... Seriously.

            I always think Xiaomi is discretely paying and sponsoring in forums
            and reviews.

                  I bought this Nothing Phone (2) mainly for its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor but I was so disappointed to see Nothing throttle all games to 60Hz like Oppo and OnePlus do...
                  So it's only Samsung and Google in the Android market that don't restrain you software.

                            I tested the Samsung 25W charger and it took a full charge 1h 07min , to 80% 43min.
                            Therefore, it is probably not worth buying 45W charger.
                            Overall, I am impressed with the battery and performance, I switched from OnePlus 10 pro, only the vibrations are better on OnePlus maybe night camera too and the portability.
                            More stable system in nothing.

                                  User, 24 Jul 2023It is just nothing....In all fairness, it is just a typical midrange with a few quirks, selling for a near flagship price.

                                    Very biased camera review. Nothing Phone 2 camera has been tested by very professional tech sites in India (YouTube) comparisons made of 4-5 phones and only mediocre results and update made it worse according to some. Of course daytime photos looked good on that sunny day - tell me on which only 300€ phone they wouldn't? And to say photos at night looked superb is wildly exaggerated, they looked nothing special.
                                    Worst thing about Nothing 2 camera is actually not the quality, which may improve with time, but it's lack of advanced modes like Dual Capture video, which is an absolute must have feature for me. Xiaomi 12 Lite has so much more to offer despite a 249€ price tag now (Nothing 2 is still 729€ in EU-Finland, same price as OnePlus 11). Xiaomi camera options in MORE is staggering : 1) 108mp, 2) Short Video 15 sec, 3) Panorama, 4) VLOG, 5) Slow motion, 6) Time lapse, 7) Movie effects, 8) Long exposure, 9) Dual Capture video (front+back camera video recording), 10) Clone photo/clone video (fun!).
                                    Definitely keeping my Xiaomi 12 Lite. With a fantastic capable camera in all situations. It will still get Android 14 & 15. I found it new at a crazy low price 199€. Screen is a stunning 6.55" AMOLED, 68 Billion colors, 120Hz, Dolby Vision, HDR10+, 950 nits (peak) and of course great sounding stereo speakers.

                                      Camera quality has deteriorated after the update, update quickly for the best camera.

                                        Great software I'd say the best I've used on any Android device thus far.

                                        However the mediocre camera and speakers are holding this device back.
