First Impressions in one word that is fantastic. Most HYPED phone of this decade. Yes, it offered more then what I have expected. Minute details have been taken so seriously starting from sim ejector tool to phone's sim tray (Dotted fonts). Everything has its own details around the phone. I would like to include that the Phone (1) doesn't have any fancy liquid cooling tech inside it, despite of that it doesn't heat up even after extensive gaming at high settings the temps were around 40°c. Well talking about temps yeah the credit goes to Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ it's the most balance chipset I have ever used so far. Kudos to Qualcomm for customising this chipset for NOTHING. The build quality is great recycled alluminium frame, boxy design, a rare flat (Flexible) OLED display and yeah you know the attractive part The Glyph Interface. These all stands out from the rest of the brands in mid range competition. Software!!! Oh, the stock Android 12 feeling is great without a single bloatware installed. Nothing OS is buttery smooth, snappy and fast. It won't make you feel that the phone is having a mid range chipset (till you see the spec sheets). Cameras well yeah this I got me mixed feelings. 2 sensors and no nonsense thumps for that. Primary sensor is Sony IMX 766 50MP and secondary one is having Samsung's JN1 sensor 50 MP Ultra wide/Macro. There is a noticeable colour shifting from primary to secondary sensors. Dynamic range is not upto the mark yet. At night artificial light flares can be seen. Overall a good package all round and camera department can be improved via upcoming software updates.

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!

Cameras

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
