Carl Pei has said that technology is boring and that Nothing’s goal is to make technology interesting again. The biggest part of Nothing’s plan comes together when the Nothing phone (1) goes on sale.
But how different is this phone? Isn’t this the same as every other Android phone in this price range?
Here are some Nothing Phone (1) Features that make it stand apart.
1. It has a transparent back
The front and back of the phone are both made of Gorilla Glass 5, which is clear. That means you can see some of how the phone works through the back. Nothing had to think about the design as a whole to ensure there was something to see, and there are textures and elements under the glass that you won’t see on any other phone.
2. The Glyph interface
Okay, so the clear back helps the Glyph Interface, which is the backlighting system, but it could have been done without the clear back. The Glyph Interface uses lit-up LED strips to tell you about things like notifications, charging and Google Assistant. The strips can also be used to give the camera more light. We’ve seen back displays on gaming phones before, but nothing like this. It makes the phone stand out. One of the best Nothing Phone (1) Features.
3. The packaging
Yes, you don’t buy a phone because of the box it comes in, but if you want your phone to stand out, design the box it comes in. The neat tear strips on the slim packaging give this phone’s unboxing experience a high-end feel that belies its low price. Read More; Google Pixel 7: Everything We Know So Far
4. A Quick Setting that actually makes sense
If you’ve used Android for a while, you already know how great Quick Settings are. Except when Google moved the Quick Setting, you have to go through more menus to turn off Wi-Fi. Nothing UI has a switch you can swipe to turn on or off for mobile data, Wi-Fi, and hotspot. So easy, but so helpful. Microsoft Patents a Perfect Foldable Phone
5. It might be hard to buy one.
Most of the time, if you want a new phone, you just buy one. You don’t have to jump through hoops for anything. First of all, you won’t be able to buy it if you live in the US or Canada. Why? Because it costs a lot to get a product on the market in the US. But that’s only the beginning. You’ll need an invite for pre-orders, so you’ll have to sign up for a waitlist. But it will go on sale in the UK on July 21, 2022, and you should be able to get one from several stores. Read Also; Nothing Phone (1) — Everything We Know So Far
