CMF By Nothing Phone 1 Gaming Test – Honkai: Star Rail, Genshin Impact, COD: Warzone Mobile & PUBG

Nothing may be a relatively new player in the smartphone market, but the brand has already made waves. The Nothing Phone (1) turned heads with its glyph-inspired transparent design, a minimalist style that lives on in its successors, including the budget-friendly Nothing Phone (2a) — and it’s just getting started.

The first in its affordable CMF sub-brand range, Nothing’s CMF Phone 1 looks to offer more value for users. It features a new MediaTek Dimensity 7300 chip and mainboard, coming in with a configuration of 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. More impressively, the device’s 6.67-inch Super AMOLED display boasts a 120Hz refresh rate and an FHD resolution (2,400 x 1,080), which promises to be a bonus for day-to-day tasks.

In play, it proved adept at handling the demands of smartphone gaming. Honkai: Star Rail, Genshin Impact, Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile and PUBG Mobile ran surprisingly well on the CMF Phone 1, surpassing the performance of most models in its price range. To get an idea of its fluid performance, check out the video above.

The CMF Phone 1 will be available from 12 July at S$369 in three colours: Orange, Black, and Light Green.
