Nothing Phone (1) Performance Test after Nothing OS 2.5.1 Open Beta 2 Update

Recently, Nothing released the Nothing OS 2.5.1 Open Beta update 2 based on Android 14 for Phone (1). The update was sent through OTA for Phone (1) users on Nothing OS 2.5.1 Open Beta 1. The update doesn’t add any new features over the previous update but fixes some known bugs and brings improvements to various parts of the UI.

The update also brings improvements to various aspects like performance, Background Process Management, Cameras, and connectivity. Now let’s have a look at the performance improvements with Nothing OS 2.5.1 Open Beta 2 update over the Open Beta 1 update.

Nothing Phone (1) performance test after Nothing OS 2.5.1 Open Beta 2 Update

Nothing Phone (1) was released with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ SoC which is a 5G processor based on 4nm fabrication and is a very stable and decently powerful processor. It is also equipped with an Adreno 642L GPU, the latest LPDDR5 RAM type, and faster UFS 3.1 storage.

We performed the Geekbench 6 CPU Benchmark test on our Nothing Phone (1) and noticed a slight decrement in the single-core score as the score went down by 47 points and a major decline in the multi-core score which decreased by 143 points.

The GPU benchmark gave almost the same scores as before, which is around 2300 points for the OpenCL Score, thus GPU performance remains the same as before.

We also performed a CPU throttling test, which determines the stability and performance of the processor. It lets us know when the processor throttles when it is pushed to its limits. We ran the test for 15 minutes the previous build showed the CPU throttling to 95% of its maximum performance and the latest Open Beta 2 version throttled to 92% which is slight decrement from the previous version. Although the Open Beta 2 version also gave a slightly better average GIPS score of 249091 when compared to 244779 of the previous build. This suggests that Nothing has maintained the throttling performance similar to the previous build while still managing to bump the Performance which means it can handle CPU-intensive tasks for long periods without throttling the performance.

We also ran an AnTuTu benchmark V9.5.7 test to monitor the change in the overall performance of smartphones and here, Phone (1) with Open Beta 1 performed slightly better than the latest Open Beta 2 Update by a difference of 7734 points, but the latest version got better GPU scores when compared to the previous version. Thus, overall CPU and GPU performance remain the same as before.

The performance test shows that the overall CPU and GPU performance of the Phone (1) remains more or less the same when compared to the previous build. The phone doesn’t throttle much and maintains consistent performance in day-to-day tasks and smoothness throughout the UI. The latest update has also optimized background process termination and performance when memory is low.
