Nothing Phone (1): Pros and Cons

Display and battery life are a big plus. Also, getting four years of security patches is a pure blessing. On the other hand, cameras and the haptic engine don’t rise up to the high-expectations.

Nothing Phone (1) Price

The price differs a bit according to the storage facility and RAM specifications. Here are the details –

If you like to lay your hands on the base model, which has an 8GB RAM and a 128GB storage, then it would cost you $461.24. Whereas, going for the 8GB/128GB-variant would result in a pocket-pinch of $519.22. And if you wish to bag the best possible Nothing smartphone, which comes with a 12GB RAM and a 256GB storage, then you have to sanction $577.29.

The price seems competitive enough as it’s way below than Google’s Pixel 6, Samsung Galaxy S22 and iPhone 13. Rather, it appears quite close to the price of OnePlus Nord 2T or Samsung Galaxy A53. Nothing’s first-ever product Nothing Ear (1)’s price was also more than reasonable with a $99-price tag.
