Nothing CEO Carl Pei lists the advantages of the Nothing phone (1) compared to the Pixel 6a

While Nothing is working on its second smartphone – the Nothing Phone (2), the company’s first phone – the Nothing Phone (1) remains in the news. This time on the microblogging site Twitter, a user named Yidi Reiss asked CEO Carl Pei how the Nothing Phone (1) is a better device than the Google Pixel 6a.

For those unaware, Nothing Phone (1) and Google Pixel 6a are popular mid-range phones that can be easily bought under 30,000 in India. While the Pixel 6a is powered by the Google Tensor chipset, the latter is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778+ 5G processor.

“Aside from the Glyph interface, how would you say it’s better than the Pixel 6a? Just curious from what I understand is the same price,” Reece asked.

Nothing’s CEO Carl Pei responded to them, saying, “I find it strange that the Nothing phone (1) is being compared to the Pixel 6a. It’s a great device, but it has a completely different positioning and value proposition.” “

He further adds that ‘the 6a is Pixel’s entry level smartphone’, while ‘the phone (1) is our flagship smartphone’. He further adds that the Bill of Materials (BOM) cost to manufacture the phone (1) is much higher than 6A.

In the post he further explains some of the advantages of the phone (1) ‘for the sake of argument’. here’s what he said

– Symmetrical bezels around the screen vs the larger chin on the 6a. It is very satisfying for those who demand good design.

– Gorilla Glass 5 vs plastic back side, again feels more premium.

– Improved processor for faster performance.

– Better camera hardware, although we have some gripes with them on the software.

– 120Hz vs 60Hz display refresh rate for a noticeable difference in smoothness when scrolling.

– Significantly larger screen, 6.55″ vs. 6.1″, for better media consumption.

– I prefer Nothing OS to Pure Android from an aesthetics and customization/polish/finesse perspective, although both are good.

– Support for fast wired charging and wireless charging which is not present on the 6a.
