The budget smartphone domain already had numerous amazing smartphones from noteworthy OEMs, including the likes of Samsung, Poco, and Pixel A series. Despite that, Nothing Phone 1 stepped into the mix and blew the competition away. In Nothing Phone 1, you will find a plethora of amazing features and a stunning Glyph interface among others.
When talking about the software side, this device also beholds a near about stock OS experience with numerous nifty features. Some of the best smartphones don’t just pack in features but they also have large screens.
But with such big screens, it has become tricky as users have to use two hands for tasks that ideally could have been done with just one hand. Sometimes, it just feels more comfortable and convenient to use your smartphone one-handed, like when you are holding something.
Users having trouble with One-Handed Mode
When Android 12 came out, it brought along the new “one-handed mode” for Pixel devices. Similar to Apple’s “Reachability” feature, this mode adds a gesture that allows the users to bring the top half of the screen down to the bottom, which makes it easier to reach. This feature is quite convenient on smartphones that have big screens.
Many users have been complaining that they aren’t able to enable the one-handed mode on Nothing Phone 1 as the option is missing from the system. The one-handed mode isn’t a luxury feature of sorts, it has been incorporated into smartphones for a while.
