Fresh air is always good for the mobile market. One Plus realized this and launched the One Plus One almost 9 years ago – a smartphone that was significantly cheaper and yet almost as good as the flagships of its time. Back then, the company’s founders decided to do something different by giving the phone a rough sandstone finish and a heavily modified Android operating system, thereby changing smartphones forever.
One of the founders was Carl P, who is now planning to re-enter the phone market with his new company, Nothing. This time, the Nothing (1) phone might even give One Plus a little nod. After an extensive look at the Nothing (1) phone in our hands, we’re now going to revisit our first impressions by taking a closer look at the device and running some measurements and benchmarks. Lets start.
