Lately when I press the lock button on the NP1 it opens te camera instead of locking the phone. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? this wasnt happening when I first got the phone only happening recently maybe after the last OS update. It doesnt happen every time some times it also locks the phone normally

It registers a double-click, which is a shortcut for the camera. You can turn that off in settings>system>gestures; as to why your button is double clicking, that's an entirely different topic, and one I can't answer.

Is there no way to toggle the Flashlight with the screen off? Aka Hold the power button to turn on flashlight?

Is there no way to make that using the volume buttons always changes media volume first?

Can i not reduce the vibration intensity?

no option to double tap the screen to wake it up?

Why can't i hide the 3 button navigation bar when i'm not using it.

If the phone says fast charging is it always 33w? Or it can like fast charge at 15w?

With ampere I'm seeing 3A but the voltage stays at around 4.4 which should mean 5V

From my own experience, probably to prevent excess heat and battery wear, Nothing is throttling the wattage with screen on to max 15w, on my phone it's closer to 11w. According to AccuBattery's history, the average screen off charge speed when on a USB-PD 33w charger shows about 5800mA, so ~30w, whereas with screen on it's 1906mA, around 11w . So, if your charger is QC3, QC4 or USB-PD 3 compatible, it should charge the phone full speed when not touching the phone and with the screen off :)

Edit: with lower wattage chargers, it is probably still halving the current just in case. Not sure.

    I am considering to buy this phone and I'm wondering about few things.

    1. Does the phone screen use noticable PWM? Is it possible to use DC dimming? I am very sensitive to low frequencies used by many manufacturers like Samsung and had to switch to LCD screens in the past.

    2. What is "lost" after bootloader unlocking? Some manufacturers screw up camera, others remove DRM almost completely. Does Widevine stay at L1, or is it downgraded to L3?

    3. Does TWRP support data decryption?

    4. Does the phone support "hotbooting" by command "fastboot boot boot_image.img"? One of my previous phones didn't and rooting with Magisk/TWRP was PITA. :)

    Thanks!
    1. No dc dimming as far as i know.
    2. Im have root. DRM Info says: Security Level: L1
    3. No TWRP Recovery atm and i dont think anyone is working on this.
    4. Hotboot is possible.

    You need to display white content for black bars to be easily visible, but it sounds like NP1 is using DC dimming afterall (I found a little conflicting reports on this). 🙂
    Tried again with white content. Flickering bars as you can see.

    The Nothing Phone is an awesome device. Hopefully it fits your needs.

    NP1 bars seem better than mine on Mi A3 phone, so hopefully it'll be fine.

    Btw. is it possible to swap left and right buttons when using the standard navigation bar? I must have back button on the right side for one handed usage. 🙂
    I checked that for you and its possible(there is an option to switch it in normal settings). :)

    Tried it again. Flashed super.img and used the sh4tteredd tool to flash the rest and it still only boots into fast boot
    You made sure that you chaged the boot slot as last step before booting?

    Hi Everyone,
    I have created this thread which will allow to gather, but also to help by bringing answers to the various problems which can meet the owners of the Phone(1).
    Unfortunately some of these problems cannot be solved here, in which case you will have to contact Nothing Support and explain your problem clearly.
    Otherwise, if your problem can be solved here, feel free to post it here and xda members may be able to provide a solution for you and others.


    PLEASE SEARCH AND READ BEFORE TO POST EVERYWHERE, FOR A BETTER HELP. THANKS (y)

    Hi, i noticed a weird bug with night shift mode on the nothing phone1, no matter how you'll set up your night shift mode it will always turn it on BUT it'll never turn it off again, at least for me now.

    Hopefully it'll get fixed within the next update

    I was thinking of backing up my IMEI numbers when I get my device, to prevent this from happening. I'm hoping the Qualcomm Product Support Tool works with the phone. @Sib64 Do you suggest any other methods to back up the IMEI?
    Having no clear and definite visibility on this kind of problem and despite the various messages left on the Nothing Discord or the forum, there is no feedback yet.😠
    I wrote the tutorial that allows to use Qualcomm's tool (Qualcomm Product Support Tools) but I'm not sure if it works for the Phone(1), even if the processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon.
    So when in doubt, I prefer not to post it.

    But this afternoon I will post a tutorial on how to use Sideload.;)

    [IMEI CODEs switched to null]

    I have gone into engineerigmode and CIT app and i have seen all activity without apply any modified values.
    After i have applaied the new version of NothingOS 1.0.2 i have restarded phone and my imei code have switched to null.

    So i have unlocked oem feature in developer menu for performing fastboot flashing method of all partitions in the next future. I have perfomed a factory reset but my phone now is in bootloop bootloader mode. It's in softbrick.

    I have send some emails to nothing support.

    Anyone have the same/similar problem?​

    Thanks for the thread Sib.

    So about problem 1, heading over from the other thread, continuing it here,
    Issue is us getting some of our phone's partitions getting corrupted because we accessed engineering mode, cit (but no toggling on/off anything) Phone's on NothingOS1.0.2

    Eventually losing IMEI. It showing as "null" now.

    Tried contacting Nothing and Flipkart (India's logistics partner). And i'll update here as soon as something's up from either of them. Request other people in the same place to post here on the same
    I'll see if I can find anything on this subject elsewhere ;)
