Google has already launched one of its mid-range Pixel series smartphones that is the Pixel 6a. just after the launch of Pixel 6a, there is a new company that has inaugurated its 1st phone named Nothing 1. Nothing 1 is also a mid-range smartphone that is most popular in the market. Google pixel 6a shares its design with its predecessors that is pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Nothing Phone 1 comes with a totally unique and new design and features. We are here to compare both Google Pixel 6a and Nothing Phone 1 and let you know which is the best one in terms of price, specifications, and usability.

All the joints of the connected components are covered with LED flashlights. This is a completely new design for smartphones. These LED lights sync with all the notifications for messages and calls.

Comparing the design Pixel 6a is the winner because of the protective and durable design provided by google. Nothing phone's design can be easily cracked when the phone is dropped from the backside so it is not that durable in terms of design.

Display and Refresh Rate

Google has offered a screen size of 6.1 inches with Pixel 6a. its display is a Full HD+ OLED display that provides you with a refresh rate of 60hz. Whereas Nothing phone 1 consists of a 6.55 inches display equipped with the same Full HD OLED display but here Nothing gets the advantage because it offers you the refresh rate of 120hz which is just double that of pixel 6a.
