Now, Nothing CEO Carl Pei has finally addressed this ongoing comparison between the two devices. He listed around seven points about the phone (1) that make it better than the Pixel 6a.
Starting with the display, he said that the phone (1) offers symmetrical bezels around the screen as opposed to the large chin of the Pixel 6a. He said the Nothing device also has a more premium Gorilla Glass 5 back and a faster processor.
Furthermore, he compared the 120Hz screen refresh rate with the Pixel’s 60Hz screen and also added that the larger display on the phone (1) provides for better media consumption.
In the end, he added that he likes the OS better than nothing pure Android, and that the faster wired and wireless charging support are additional advantages on the phone (1).
