Nothing Phone (2a) faces drop test / first update

The Nothing Phone (2a) has to prove its durability in the drop test. The reward is the Nothing OS 2.5.4 update.
Nothing Phone (2a)

The Nothing Phone (2a) is the company’s first mid-range cell phone, so a new design was needed. The original phone (1) and the high-end phone (2) have an aluminum frame and sturdy Gorilla Glass on the front and back. The (2a) has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and an aluminum frame in the middle, but the back is plastic.

A drop test by PBKreviews has now shown that the Nothing Phone (2a) is still quite resilient. Although it is 100% recycled aluminum and over 50% recycled plastic. In fact, Nothing uses materials left over from the production of the Nothing Ear (2) earbuds. Several drops later, there are still no more than a few scuffs and scratches on the case.

The Gorilla Glass 5 on the front is no longer the latest glass (it was launched in 2016), but it also passed the test. The white paint on the middle frame also withstood the test very well. As did the plastic back when it collided with the asphalt.

Nothing Phone (2a): Nothing OS 2.5.4 update is here

In addition, the first update for the Nothing Phone (2a) has arrived. Nothing introduced the phone earlier this month with Nothing OS 2.5.3, and now the Nothing OS 2.5.4 update is available for download. It aims to improve the camera’s color accuracy and saturation while optimizing consistency between the main and ultrawide cameras.

In addition, Nothing OS 2.5.4 improves Ultra XDR photos in terms of brightness and hue and optimizes the bokeh effect in portrait mode. According to Nothing, the phone (2a) also delivers better performance when gaming, including BGMI (Indian version of PUBG). The image above shows the full changelog.

If you haven’t received the update yet, you can search for it manually as usual. To do this, simply go to the “Settings > System > System update” menu on your Nothing Phone (2a) and start the manual search.
