Nothing Phone (1) review

Nothing Phone (1) review

Although we were able to study the Phone (1)’s design in Nothing’s official press imagery ahead of its launch, getting hands on the device is unquestionably a richer experience.

The design of the Phone (1) is instantly recognizable to anyone that has seen an iPhone. The phone’s shape, front, and back are similar, along with dual rear camera placement.

While transparent-backed phones were already a thing before, this option is presented with a few new features that make it stand out. The exposed components are made to be functional while staying aesthetically pleasing.

As you turn the phone in your hand, it emits shifting specular highlights and shadows before your eyes. It does a decent job of repelling fingerprints, despite having a mostly glass back. You would have to look really hard on the back of the device to even find smudges. You might not want to buy this phone case because it has a lot of rules and features but when you do it, the case is easy to wear and handle.

There are many unexpected features of the phone that are set to start conversations on a regular basis. The transparent design is one example and this is supplemented by ‘glyphs’ – a word meaning shape or mark that indicate the position and size of the illuminated pixels. These act as notifications

Nothing has put it to use in a unique feature that lights up the edge of the rear camera module and wireless charging coil.

There was some speculation around the panel that the Phone (1) would sport, based largely on its expected price point. And now that it’s here, we can confirm that nothing has graced the device with a 6.55-inch full hd+ amoled panel boasting a 120Hz high refresh rate, along with hdr10+ compatibility and 10-bit color support.

Given that Nothing’s first product was a pair of Bluetooth earbuds, it should come as no surprise that the Phone (1) doesn’t feature a wired headphone jack, instead delivering audio over bluetooth. Nothing, the company’s own wireless Bluetooth earbuds, connect automatically to your smartphone. The device also offers quick pairing capabilities; you can hook these up in seconds.

The “Signature dot matrix” font the phone uses across its hardware, such as on its glass back and even on the SIM tray that pops open, is also used in the user interface, dubbed “Nothing OS”, to make it feel cohesive.

Nothing OS for iPhone has a customizable interface that is similar to Google’s and Motorola’s own takes on Android, but the company made slight changes to keep the UI unique. folders can be enlarged to occupy a 2 x 2 space on the home screen and there’s even an option for you to hide it when not in use. It offers other features like adding more quick-settings widgets, but still keeps all of your connectivity options in one place.

One of the most controversial aspects of the Phone (1) ahead of launch was the choice of Snapdragon 778. This chipset surprised a lot of industry watchers due to the prior belief that these components were already outdated and obsolete.

You’re getting a snapper with 16MP on the front and 50MP on each rear camera. The main Sony IMX766 sensor supports by OIS and is ubiquitous amongst phone makers, while the secondary 50MP Samsung JN1 ultrawide means you don’t have to compromise on sharpness.

The camera features on Google’s phone are not very extensive, but it does have a macro mode that is optimized for shooting close-ups of objects.

Apple MacBook Air (M2, 2022) Review

M2 is a computer chip developed by Apple. It was the company’s first-ever internal notebook micro processor, and outperforms its predecessor by 300%. The M2 offers similar performance to its successor, the more powerful M3 chip. Unlike what many people were hoping for, the new MacBook is not offered in a range of pastel colors like other iMac.

What we really love is the more powerful processor and a high-resolution display in the MacBook Pro, while still keeping it affordable..

The new MacBook Pro has been upgraded to a slightly redesigned model with a lot of updates that would have made sense if the MacBook Air hadn’t also received an update with the same updates.

So, Apple has redesigned the MacBook Air and made it…more expensive. And they’ve kept the same design on the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The MacBook Air is an innovative device with a lot of features. However, it’s been around for awhile now and the question has come up: is the M2, 2022 latest model going to knock the old one out of its top spot? There’s a lot to love about the new Dell XPS 13 laptop, including the new chic design that increases screen size & makes it lighter while also increasing webcam resolution to 1080p.

Apple revamped one of its most famous products with a new design that makes the MacBook Air look modern and elegant. Your mourning about losing the iconic wedge is an unnecessary distraction – it feels like time for a change!

The MacBook Air 2022 is thinner and lighter than ever, exponentially smaller and lighter than the previous model in full HD. It also retains all of the amazing performance levels of its predecessors without compromising on quality.

The new MacBook Air coming out in 2022 will be equipped with the M2 System on Chip. Apple claims it has an 18% speed boost over previous chips, as well as 10 cores, and a 40% speed boom than its predecessor. The MacBook Air’s base system has 8 cores. However, you can upgrade it to a 10-core chip.

The MacBook Pro 13-inch base model comes with a powerful M2 chip and 10-core GPU for more power. This is an excellent value for the price and makes it a great option for any user.

The MacBook Air’s battery life was a big selling point. The M1 chip offered high performance and saved time & effort, even after the M2’s release. Apple promised the same with the release of the new chip.

Our battery life benchmark results are really impressive, especially considering the fact that they last 16 hours. This seriously outpaces other laptops with similar price tags and operating systems or windows-based laptops.

The MacBook Pro 13-inch lasted 30 minutes longer than the Air, which surprises us as the Air has a larger battery. The Touch Bar and less energy-efficient screen on the Pro might explain the faster battery drain on the Pro

This laptop is much more efficient than its predecessor, which could only go for 11 hours in this particular test.
