Nothing 1 vs iPhone: With its flat-sided design, simple software, expanding ecosystem of complementary devices, and the dual-camera setup on the back, it’s not a huge leap to assume that the Nothing Phone 1 aspires to be the iPhone of the Android world. But can it convince potential iPhone buyers to purchase it instead of a more affordable iPhone? We compared the Nothing Phone 1 to the iPhone 11, Apple’s most competitively priced remaining iPhone, to find out.
Let’s chat about the iPhone selection before we get to the pictures. Starting at 400 British pounds, or roughly $480, comes the Nothing Phone 1. It sports a huge 6.55-inch screen, a twin camera on the back, and a middling processor for this. The most recent iPhone 13, which costs $800 or 780 pounds, is not exactly identical in specification to the iPhone SE (2022), while having a similar price. Although the specifications are similar, it costs a lot more to purchase.
We need to travel a little bit in the past to obtain the equal brand-new modern iPhone. Apple continues to sell the iPhone 12 brand-new for $599 or 679 pounds, which is still a bit too expensive. In contrast, the iPhone 11 costs $499 or 489 pounds, which is about right. The top-tier Nothing Phone 1, which has 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage, costs 499 pounds, or approximately $590. The iPhone 11 and the Nothing Phone 1 are likely to be on your list if you have $500 to spend on a big-screen smartphone.
A 50-megapixel main camera with optical and electronic stabilisation (OIS and EIS), as well as a 50-megapixel wide-angle camera with EIS, are both features of the Nothing Phone 1. There is a 16MP selfie camera on the front. The 12MP main camera and the 12MP wide-angle camera in the 2019 iPhone 11 both have OIS and a 2x optical zoom. 12 megapixels are also on the selfie camera. Is a battle between a two and a half-year-old phone with dual 12-megapixel cameras and a recently released phone with dual 50-megapixel cameras even justifiable?
Nothing vs iPhone: Main camera
Given that the gap between 12MP and 50MP is substantial on paper, you could anticipate that there will be a major difference between the two main cameras. As both have similar tuning and performance, it turns out that it is really challenging to distinguish between the main cameras of the Nothing Phone 1 and the iPhone 11. I’ll start with the picture of the park.
The sky is a little bit less saturated in the Nothing Phone 1 shot than it is in the iPhone 11 photo, but the green is a little bit more vibrant, and the iPhone 11’s exposure works better to depict the water and its depth. Although there is a small amount of discernible blur in the corners from the Phone 1, the detail in both images is extremely similar. The road, the column, and the stepping stones’ textures are more clearly visible thanks to the iPhone 11’s better exposure.
Nothing vs iPhone: Wide angle camera
The wide-angle camera performance on the two phones varies significantly more than the main camera performance. This time, the iPhone 11 produces a more saturated image, whereas the Nothing Phone 1 typically underexposes images and produces less vibrant colour. The iPhone 11’s image has much more life and vibrancy than the Nothing Phone 1’s image, which is colder. Let’s start with the image of the field and tree.
Nothing vs iPhone: 2x Zoom
Despite Apple’s promises, the iPhone 11’s camera app does not offer a shortcut for a 2x zoom, thus you must choose it manually. The Nothing Phone 1 lacks an optical zoom feature but offers a shortcut to a 2x magnification. For the first time throughout this test, the two phones produce wildly dissimilar outcomes from one another.
Nothing vs iPhone: Night mode
While the iPhone 11 automatically evaluates lighting conditions and determines the exposure, the Nothing Phone 1 requires human activation of its night mode. In a dimly lit room with a streetlight in the background, the plant was photographed. You can tell how dark the area was because the plant was hardly visible to either camera in regular mode. The scene is much brightened by both cameras, and I noticed the similar variances between the two in all of the Night mode pictures I shot with the phones.
Nothing vs iPhone: Portrait selfie
Both phones produce respectable portrait selfies when the front camera is switched to Portrait mode, with a strong backdrop blur, nice colour balance, and realistic texturing. The iPhone 11 produces a photo that is significantly more realistic, with tones that are truer to life.
