MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

The specification of the Nothing Phone 1 makes it a mid-range smartphone. The manufacturer has said that the phone will not be available in the USA and other regions, because their primary focus is the UK and the EU. It delivers solid performance (close to flagship level) in a unique body. If you want a Google Pixel-like user experience in an iPhone-esque body, the Nothing Phone 1 is what the doctor ordered.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation based on the specificationss of the device and a general guide to help you understand how much value a device offers for its price. It is not an endorsement of the device. Ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device; MobilityArena takes no responsibility for your buying decisions.
