The truth that hurts: iPhone 13 vs Nothing Phone 1

The Nothing Phone was recently launched in July 21 and it immediately won the support of many. It even gain enough momentum to compete against other giant smartphone brands in the industry.

Because of that, we decided to compare the Nothing Phone 1 in town, the Nothing Phone 1 with the most mainstream smartphone brand, specifically the iPhone 13.

The Nothing Phone 1 has a design that is both distinctive and recognizable. It boasts an eye-catching transparent back plate that reveals some flashing light strips, but it also resembles the iPhone 13 series in terms of overall form. After comparing the two, here are the results

Okay, considering the ₱ 20 000 price difference, your budget might be a major consideration. The Nothing Phone 1 is a better deal in my perspective, even though I think the iPhone 13 is a little bit more powerful. While iOS is surrounded by a superior software and hardware ecosystem and the iPhone 13 has a more powerful processor (if you perform difficult tasks), the Nothing Phone 1 has a better screen and longer battery life.

The Nothing Phone 1 is without a doubt among your greatest options if you’re looking for a phone and don’t want to spend more than $500. Are there any more words I need to say about the iPhone 13? The iPhone 13 will satisfy those who have a little extra cash to spend or who want to fully immerse themselves in Apple’s ecosystem because it is the most widely used iPhone.
