Le Parisien I tested it: the Nothing Phone (1) is nothing to envy in smartphones and the most powerful ones on Android

You can’t confuse it with another smartphone… on Android. de belles Leds pour capter l’attention.Nous voulu aller au-delà de l’épiphénomène et de la première impression en le testant pendant severale semanas.

In a love

A very solid technical sheet. For its first model, Nothing a mis all chances de son côté en rassemblant the best components on the market for the quality/price ratio (from 469 euros): a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G + processor, an adaptive Amoled 120 Hz screen or two more photo cameras with reliable 50 megapixel sensors. The operation of all these electronics is correct to avoid all errors.

Le Nothing Phone (1) offers a beautiful video experience thanks to a well-adjusted OLED screen.

From optimized luminous “flashes”. L’histoire des Glyphes, the white or transparent LEDs of the device, could be limited to a «effet waouh» that fades over time. But the device was designed to carry out a real mission. In short, the Nothing Phone (1) offers a variety of ringtones and notification sounds linked to a light animation. But it is especially interesting to disable the sound and to attribute light motifs to a particular alert. An important WhatsApp message will wear, for example, the notification is bright when the screen is back on a table.

The light animation is customizable to cover a function.

Oui, ils can also clivants car jugés inutiles and superficials but also ils servent also of flash improvised pour éclairer a scene lors d’une photo ou more prosaïquement of lamp torche d’urgence.

Les Glyphes à l'arrière produce a bel effet that is not there "gadgets" qu'à première vue

A photographic experience at the level. This is one of the first purchase criteria after autonomy. Nothing fait mieux avec moins. The two photo sensors assure premier performance. The main module of 50 Megapixels réussit son examen de passage sans forcing (couleurs, netteté et sens des details) and the ultra wide angle module, also of 50 MP, adapted to the cadence. The device treatment software fixes minor flaws here and there.

The main photo sensor captures all elements with an excellent level of detail.

The nocturnal clichés suffer from a small latency time or decline of the photo but the attention is well worth the final result as the scene is photographed in all its complexity.

The Cliché nocturne mode suffers from a slight lag during the trigger, but the final production is satisfactory.

In a minimal intention

The designer’s lack of imagination. As much as this smartphone is distinguished on the back with its transparent sound, both on the back, it takes on a little too much of the contours of an iPhone. a ressemblance nuit parfois to the marketing will to leave the lot. Result: a facade classicism and des bordes aux tranches in metal déjà vues. œil moins averti de le confondre with a pomme croquée model. A version in a white très “Apple” vient aussi finir rappeler que a été trouvé chez le manufacturer Californian. on the next iteration of the young marque qui compte Scandinavian designers in its first circle.

Halfway between an iPhone 12 or 13 and an iPhone of a more distant generation, the Nothing Phone (1) ne cultural point sa différence frontale.

verdict

The first impression was a bonne : the phone (1) of Nothing s’est revealed itself as a solid mid-range smartphone in all points and not the design is a non-negligible bonus to differentiate the day but especially at night with you are essential LEDs. However, you can use the same price segment of Google’s Pixel 6a, which has Google’s communication power at a price sensitive to it. Possible alternatives: Samsung’s A53 or Honor 70.
