Nothing Phone (1) vs Xiaomi 12 Lite vs OnePlus Nord 2T vs Redmi Note 11 Pro +: all the differences

Design and style

Ok, the style and design of a smartphone are subjective and talking about the “most beautiful” model is very misleading. However we can talk about the “most original” device and in this respect our comparison begins with a winner from the first impact. Nothing Phone (1) he has succeeded in proposing something different, in a market that is now increasingly homologated to styles that are repeated endlessly over the course of the year. The back cover is characterized by what is defined Glyph Interface, that is a transparent back, with a minimal panel and a series of strips composed of 900 LED.

The lights are arranged around the camera and elsewhere and act as indicators for the notifications or simply to create a "magical" effect while using the device. For the front we have a large panel, with a punch hole for the camera and four super optimized edges.

Xiaomi 12Lite owes much of his style to the big brothers of the range. However, it makes sense given that we are talking about a really well-made device, with a matte back cover, characterized by low thickness and weight (we are talking about 7.29 mm and 173 grams).

Redmi Note 11 Pro + 5G continues in the wake of the rest of the series, with a youthful and pleasant look. Our parenthesis on design closes OnePlus Nord 2T: the photographic module has a “unique” layout that recalls that of the previous models but adding a touch of “extravagance” (given that one sensor is positioned asymmetrically with respect to the other two).
