Nothing Phone (2) is now the successor of the first phone of Nothing. The company is still in an entry level if we think about the aspect of founding. Some people are very much more disappointed with the design which looks identical to Nothing Phone (1).
Nothing Phone (2) review
Though design is one of the key matters, Nothing has to build identification in the market and they did this exact thing. Therefore, rear design of Nothing Phone (2) review is much better and looks premium than predecessors, Nothing Phone (1).
In a short discussion, I want to add another thing. The pricing fixes by Nothing for Nothing Phone (2) is slightly higher, if we compare from the Indian market. Because India is one of the biggest markets for mobile phones, it is a matter for them.
Front of a phone is the key part that can easily attract anyone to buy a device. In Nothing Phone (2) review we starts with the front part that has a 6.7 inch size display of LTPO OLED panel that is bigger than the predecessor. Usually an average 6.7 inch of display is highly anticipated in the market. To keep active smooth performance it gives 120Hz refresh with Full HD+ resolution and 1600 nits brightness.
The bezels are thinner than last year and the front camera pointed to the upper middle inside a punch hole notch. The brightness is high enough to use the device outside with full visibility.
We are worried about the fingerprint unlocking speed, which is very disturbing compared to the price segment. It takes extra time to deal with and, which is likely seen in mid range devices. Also, there is just IP54 water and dust resistance.
Nothing Phone (2) choices Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 hits the market last November. They could use the higher variant. Though the phone gets Android 13 OS but it can give you some different performance by getting Nothing OS 2.0, including App logo size customization that can resize to smaller or bigger.
Battery life is another crucial part. Nothing Phone (2) review runs by a 4,700mAh battery and a 45W wired charger. Of course, it brings a transparent charger like the transparent rear panel. It is much more improved than Phone (1).
In this Nothing Phone (2) review, it still has two cameras. Like the predecessor it features a primary camera with an ultrawide sensor. Though both are 50MP resolution primary and ultrawide sensors, the exact issue is its performance. It disappointednus to give a better quality camera. Although you get enough photos in daylight, the night view is not as good as we expected.
Though the primary camera uses Sony IMX890 sensor, which is familiar with many devices nowadays. Including OnePlus 11 and Nord 3, OPPO Reno 10 Pro+ and upcoming Oppo K11. Nothing Phone (2) is also leggy to capture moving objects.
The front notch has a 32MP resolution front-facing camera.
Let’s start with the refresh rate which is highly competitive. This 120Hz gives smooth using facilities and the UI has an ultra smooth performance with more customization facilities. The rear panel has 785 LED, introduced as Glyph interface.
You can use customized lighting for a particular person’s calls and messages. This lighting can be an indicator of your charging conditions, prioritized notifications etc.
The rear has a solid arc design, also LED light functionized for different notifications, charge and calls alert. This side is much improved if compared to the last year and it is 8.6mm thick and has 201.5g weight. Users feel comfortable when using the phone.
At the last and the only key part is the budget. Let’s talk about pricing after Nothing Phone (2) review. When you are highly anticipated to buy an upcoming device and after released you could find it very high budget. It is very disappointing.
Nothing Phone (1) pricing had started from just 399 USD (44,999 INR). Now the unfortunate is Nothing Phone (2) starting from 599 USD against the 8+128GB storage units. If you demand to buy the 12GB variant it costs almost 700 USD (54,999 INR). This budget is for flagship devices and easily gets more higher specification based devices.
It comes with grey and white colour variants only.
