The Nothing Phone (1) is the first smartphone from the young manufacturer led by Carl Pei. Launched in July 2022, it already has a successor on the way. But that didn’t stop DxOMark from recently testing it at the screen level.
The device received a modest score of 120 points, which places it at 89th place in the overall ranking and an interesting 12th place in the ‘High-End’ ranking. It receives the same score as the Galaxy A54 5G, but falls below the Pixel 7a or Pixel 7, which scored 140 points in this ranking.
According to DxOMark, Nothing Phone’s (1) display performance is light, accurate, and responsive. The device provides a comfortable haptic experience when browsing the Internet and using social networks.
However, DxOMark notes that readability is affected by inconsistency in color and screen brightness. Particularly in bright sunlight, the screen lacks the necessary brightness to be sufficiently readable. Reference is also made to the flickering of the images, which can interrupt the fluidity of the game.
