After some Nothing Phone (1) users took to social media platforms to gripe about getting teeth issues with the display alongside shipping delays, , London-based consumer electronics said on Monday that it knows that a modest bunch of users were impacted and the “scale of which is very low”.
Carl Pei- led Nothing’s first cell phone went under the scanner as certain users saw a green color on the display of their handsets, while a couple of blamed Flipkart and Nothing for not dealing with the conveyance sooner rather than later.
The company said in an explanation that they proposed a manufacturing plant reset to certain buyers and “that has fixed the issue”.
“If for some, the issue still persists, we encourage affected users to contact our customer support team and a replacement will be provided,” said Nothing, adding that it is recalibrating the display effect in an upcoming software update.
The response came as Nothing customers took to Twitter to raise their concerns.
“I am facing a green tint issue in my Nothing Phone (1). I want a replacement for this phone. I contacted @nothing several times but got no response,” said a user.
“I have a massive green tint on the top of the screen… Flipkart has rejected my replacement request saying there is no fault. Clearly, a phone’s display should not be like this in everyday usage,” another customer posted on Twitter.
Some other users complained about the late delivery.
“Ordered Nothing phone (1) on 18 July 2022. Still waiting. Today is the promised delivery date by Flipkart, but till now, I did not get any update on Out for delivery. It has been the third time I am experiencing this kind of delivery delay,” a user tweeted on Sunday.
“@flipkartsupport Where is my order? It’s too much late to wait for a phone,” another user wrote on the microblogging platform.
The smartphone with a 6.55-inch display offers a 50MP dual camera at the rear, a refined Nothing operating system (OS), a 120Hz OLED display with HDR10+, and a custom-built Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset.
