Fashion has been dragged kicking and screaming to the early 2000s, so it was only a matter of time before the tech world followed suit. Reminiscent of the translucent case designs of third-party N64 controllers and iMac G3s, tech brand Nothing’s new mid-range smartphone lives up to its name: the USP being that it’s a see-through device, crafted with sturdy Gorilla Glass, that allows you to look at the machine’s inner workings.
Over 9000 LED lights – which the brand calls a ‘Glyph Interface’ – communicate notifications, battery status and incoming calls through a series of patterns, and everything is geared up to be as unobtrusive as possible. We’re used to do-it-all smartphones that attempt to keep you scrolling, tapping and consuming for as long as possible, but the Nothing Phone (1) aims to cultivate a more mindful approach to phone use and life in general. The display is vivid, the dual-camera impressive and the battery-charge fast, while the Android interface is as cleanly designed as you’d expect.
