The first phone models (1) arrive in the hands of consumers and their first technical concerns surface with them. Some users notice green tints on their screen as well as dead pixels around the front camera.
Sometimes it’s good to be among the first customers of a product, but sometimes there are also a few problems to overcome, as currently seems to be the case with Nothing. Barely reached the hands of the first users, the phone (1) already has the first hardware problems.
Green tinted screens and smudges around the front camera
Early adopters had the misfortune of receiving “defective” models. These people had an unpleasant surprise when they saw their screen turn green when for others there were dead pixels around the front camera.
One Indian user who received a replacement unit even had the misfortune of coming across another model with the same problem.
Wow @Flipkart great job, within 2 consecutive days you managed to send two phones with faulty screens. Even the replacement phone has a tint problem. Just another day for you 😑😑 @getpaid @nothing @AmreliaRuhez @geekyranjit @TrakinTech @igyaan pic.twitter.com/SDQ4FBpmOo

He’s apparently not the only one who’s experienced this screen tint error as the problem has been reported several times by other customers complaining on Twitter or Reddit.
Today I received the phone 1 …found the screen with a green tint on the top of the screen..please solve it, I am totally disappointed 😞 …. Lover of the beauty of the phone please replace or fix it also sent a mail to support nothing with my email firstname.lastname@example.org pic.twitter.com/B6FcyLc22L

These failures seem to be affecting mostly Indian models at the moment. Therefore, it could be a problem limited to the country where these faulty units are distributed.
Hi Carl, so Nothing is new in Nothing Phone 1, we have already seen the same “Green Tint display” problem on some of the previous OP phones. So what’s the hype? @geekyranjit @GyanTherapy @igyaan pic.twitter.com/ODfBPSna5j

What is certain is that this is not good publicity for Nothing, which considers the Indian market as a priority market.
At the same time, other users have also reported the appearance of dead pixels around their smartphone’s front camera, just a few hours after first use.
We received Nothing phone (1) Indian retail unit this morning. And in just three hours, we see dead pixels around the selfie camera in our unit. Disappointing!!

Nothing seems to have acknowledged the existence of the problem via his Twitter account Nothing Support, without giving the exact reason. We currently do not know the origin of the problem, whether it is hardware or software.
Problems with green shades on screens are not so rare and have already been encountered on other smartphones. Phones with Oled screens are sometimes prone to such problems that have been fixed in the past with simple updates.
The best solution if the problem persists is to contact the brand to get a replacement model. One of the affected phones also appears to have an issue with condensation on the back panel around the camera module.

It will be necessary to wait to see if these problems remain limited to a few smartphones or if they repeat and spread to more models in circulation before we start to see a real complication. For now, this is still an anecdote.
