At the beginning of the week, perhaps the most exciting smartphone of the year, namely the Phone 1 from Nothing, was officially unveiled. Meanwhile, reports are also piling up in this country that the device, which is actually only available from July 21, has already been shipped. Some have already received the smartphone on July 14. However, this is also accompanied by numerous Nothing Phone 1 problems. There is talk of display errors, dead pixels and even moisture under the transparent back.
Nothing Phone 1 problems: The launch is bumpy
The Nothing Phone 1 officially launches worldwide starting July 21. However, more and more users report having received the smartphone already these days. However, the launch is apparently quite bumpy, because the mid-range model unfortunately suffers from several problems.
Reports about Nothing Phone 1 problems are currently piling up on the short message service Twitter. User IronHrt2018, for example, reports a greenish cast of the display. This is a problem that OnePlus devices already had when Nothing founder Carl Pei was still working there.
While the lower third of the AMOLED display is affected, user ViaHeart reports a similar greenish cast in the upper area. Piquantly, its device has even been replaced, with the replacement device also coming with a green cast.

I see dead pixels
IronHrt2018’s replacement device, on the other hand, offered a very different bug for this, in the form of dead pixels right next to the punch hole that is home to the front camera.
This Nothing Phone 1 problem is again confirmed by beebomco from India, also via Twitter. He too shows pixel errors around the punch hole camera.
Humidity on the back
The transparent back of the Nothing Phone 1, in conjunction with the gylphe interface littered with around 900 LEDs, is the flagship of the new smartphone. But even here, the first models are experiencing huge problems.
Here, the tweet shows that water residue can apparently form on the top and behind the rear cameras. And this is apparently not because the IP53-certified Phone 1 has been exposed to splashing water, but simply because the camera has been “used for a while”, the person concerned writes.
Nothing has not yet commented on the Nothing Phone 1 issues. However, it should be mentioned that many smartphone releases have had to deal with problems in individual cases and errors, especially in the initial delivery contingent are truly not uncommon. It is also possible that these are only isolated cases.
