These 3 things were just confirmed for the Nothing Phone 2

Every time we hear new details about the Nothing Phone 2, it becomes that much more enticing. Now, a recent tweet thread from the official Nothing Twitter account just confirmed three new and exciting features.

In an attempt to create more eco-friendly devices that are made using sustainable practices, Nothing announced several key details regarding the Nothing Phone 2’s production — from things like its recyclable aluminum frame to the company’s partnership with ASI and IRMA (two companies devoted to helping push sustainable practices in the mobile industry). Owners of the Nothing Phone 2 will feel the company’s devotion to sustainable practices in its firmware updates.

The Nothing Phone 2 will offer three years of Android updates and four years of security updates, meaning that the phone will be a viable option for a good long while after it launches later this year. With the constant launching of new smartphones, many phone owners feel the pressure to frequently be buying more devices. However, the promise of several years of support for the Nothing Phone 2 will help reduce that pressure on buyers while simultaneously reducing tech waste.

We’re committed to making beautiful products that you feel proud to own.

To sustain our efforts, we’ll continue to offer 3 years of Android updates and 4 years of security updates. So Phone (2) can go further with you.

It’s worth pointing out that it’s unclear exactly what Nothing Phone 2 owners will be able to expect from the promised three years of Android updates since Nothing phones run on Nothing OS, an offshoot of Android. Nonetheless, it’s still good to see Nothing stepping up and promising extended support.

The other major feature coming to the Nothing Phone 2 is a larger display. In the same thread where Nothing promised extended software support, the company also confirmed that the Phone 2’s display will be 0.15 inches bigger than that found on the Nothing Phone 1. While 0.15 inches might not seem like a lot at face value, users will likely feel the difference when the Nothing Phone 2 actually launches as the screen will be able to include more information and, hopefully, make even better use of its display space.

With the added size, the Nothing Phone 2’s display will be 6.7 inches, a size that’s on par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. A screen that size certainly sounds nice, so we’re hopeful that Nothing is able to deliver on the rest of what it’s promising for its second flagship device.

After 3 days, I love these 4 things about the iPhone 15

Apple’s new iPhone 15 has hit the streets, and boy, it’s a pretty great upgrade from its predecessor. You now have the Dynamic Island, USB-C, an A16 Bionic processor, and a mighty 48MP main camera that can do up to 2x optical zoom. To top it off, the standard iPhone 15 models have a new matte finish back glass with color infused throughout the material.

I’ve only had the iPhone 15 for a few days now and will be working on the full review for Digital Trends in the coming days. But after just spending a couple of days with it, I’m already thoroughly impressed with the iPhone 15, even though I typically go for the Pro models myself.
The new matte back is absolutely lovely

4 things Android phones still do better than the iPhone 15

The Apple iPhone 15 lineup is here, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The Dynamic Island and USB-C are now available across the lineup, the standard models get a big camera boost to 48MP, the Pros get the new Action button, and the Pro Max even has a fancy new tetraprism telephoto lens for 5x optical zoom.

While all of this sounds impressive, Apple’s iPhone lineup is still behind the competition. Android phones have had some of these features for a while now — and even do some things a lot better.

I’ve had the iPhone 15 Pro Max for 48 hours. Here are 3 things you need to know

It's finally here, folks: new iPhone season. Apple's iPhone 15 event wrapped up over a week ago, the first iPhone 15 reviews are trickling out, and it won't be that long before you start seeing the new lineup in every Best Buy and Target you go to.

My iPhone 15 Pro Max arrived on September 20, and at the time of publishing this, I've been using it for just about 48 hours. That's obviously not enough time for a full review, but during that limited amount of time, I've already learned some really important things about Apple's latest entry in the Pro Max family. It's very familiar in a lot of ways, but there are three specific changes that could make it a more worthwhile upgrade than expected — and I'm not talking about USB-C.
