Why do the specs sound like your describing a OnePlus phone 🤔

Prakash

The Nothing phone 1 is an excellent phone with so many good specs and the phone design is very new and never seen before! This is a Mid-range Flagship smartphone that has awesome features like Glyph Interface which looks incredible, this led lights are unique in this phone! The Flexible OLED display is great in a Mid-range phone because not many brands give an Oled display, the Snapdragon 778G+ is a good chip that gives good performance and the phone will be smooth to use. The 4500 mAh battery is good enough to produce enough power for a day and a 33W charger is not yet available so I got the 45W which can quickly charge my phone, as the wireless charging feature is great in this mid-range phone with reverse charging too! I like the face and the fingerprint locks which is very useful for me. Both the Cameras with 50 MP Sony and Samsung sensors are awesome, I tried many shots and they all came out so great! The back case for this phone is a little expensive and I don’t use a case for my phone because a transparent case is good but after 2-3 months it’ll get yellowish so I might install a film body protector from Gadgetshieldz on the back of the phone to protect it from scratches as I’m using on my Nothing ear 1 case! I love this phone and from my point of view, the overall performance is great with these good features! This is a good phone in the market!
