Should you buy the Nothing Phone (2)?

The Nothing Phone (2) is a premium offering and can still be considered at the new price. The handset offers a premium 120Hz AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which is a capable enough processor to handle your day-to-day tasks with ease and the Adreno GPU can handle gaming with ease. There is a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS support.

The phone can click decent to good pictures in bright lighting conditions and for low light, OIS kicks in and improves the results significantly. The large 4,700mAh battery can last an entire day without any trouble. However, you need to buy a charger separately. All in all, the Nothing Phone (2) is a good buy in the segment.
