Nothing Phone (2a) review


Nothing took a full year to work on the Nothing Phone (2) as the follow-up to the intriguing original Nothing Phone (1). Both of these phones stirred up...

Unique, eye-catching design with a surprising amount of added functionality from the Glyph Interface.

No charger in the box.

As for the Nothing Phone (2a), we really liked our time with it. As we said, all of the unique Nothing design and aesthetics are there. If it happens to be your particular cup of tea, we can safely say that the Nothing Phone (2a) hardware platform that...

Review: Nothing Phone (2a)


I had zero problems covering a major mobile trade show with this $350 Android smartphone from Nothing.

It's cheap! Excellent performance. Bright and smooth display. Lovely, unique design. Elegant software interface and fun Glyph lights. Good battery life. NFC for contactless payments. Three OS upgrades and 4 years of security updates. Reliable...

Limited water resistance. No Verizon compatibility. Available in the US, but through a weird developer program. No headphone jack.

Nothing Phone (2a) Review: Premium Midrange Lights Up - SlashGear


Can Nothing deliver a new phone that's not just an upgrade? Can a smartphone really look this unique and cost this amount of money at the same time?

Nothing Phone (2a) review: is this going to be the king of budget phones?


Nothing Phone (2a) is finally official and here's what we know and our initial thoughts on it!

Unique Nothing flair and panache ; Very good display, thin bezels ; Casual performance is good ; Camera is adequate at price point ; Dependable battery life

All plastic design, hair sticks to it, gathers fingerprints ; No wireless charging ; Speakers are tinny ; Heavy task performance is not great, slight input lags

Quirky design ; Crisp AMOLED display ; Punchy speakers ; Decent cameras ; Quick wired charging

Nothing Phone 2a review: I just found my favourite new budget smartphone


Offers innovative design at a low price.

Fantastic design innovations ; Excellent 50MP camera and lens ; Fun mix of Nothing's own apps

Underpowered for complex apps

A well-specced budget smartphone with a good camera, the Nothing Phone 2a evolves the brand's innovative design in a fun new direction. Hardware is backed by excellent Nothing apps and the latest features of Android 14.

Nothing Phone (2a) Review: Nothing Serious, All Good!


Here's a detailed review of the Nothing Phone (2a) which comes with a toned down set of glyph LEDs over its siblings. Is it worth purchasing?

Design & Display Build Quality Haptics & Speakers Performance & Glyph Integration Battery backup Overall Camera Performance

Portrait shots can have better edge detection Software needs bug fixing & enhancements in smoothness Charging could be faster Camera app needs refinement

The Nothing Phone (2a) is the brand’s first attempt at capturing the lower-end mid-range segment and we would say it’s a successful one. With its clean software (albeit needing some bug fixing), 3 years of OS update support, a decent display and camera...

Nothing Phone (2a) review: greater than the sum of its parts


Pared back plastic matched with plenty of style – can the Nothing Phone (2a) out-fun the Pixel 7a and take the midrange crown?

Nothing Phone (2a) Review


Nothing has released its cheapest phone yet with the Nothing Phone (2a), but it retains the brand's signature style.

Design and UI both stylish and solid ; Smooth performance ; Strong battery life

Nothing OS 2.5 UI embellishments could run deeper ; No wireless charging ; Glyph system significantly stripped back

The Nothing Phone (2a) might have a flashy design, but its core appeal is how well balanced it is for the money. Build quality, performance, battery life, display and camera are all reassuringly solid, while Phone (2a)’s eye-catching UI and Glyph...
