Reviews of the Nothing Phone 1 were released today (be sure to check out ours). While the reviews are mostly positive, there are some huge negatives about the device: it’s not available in the US and doesn’t have the best processor.
If you really like the look of the Phone 1 but can’t or don’t want to buy one, don’t worry. Thanks to a new Dbrand Nothing Phone 1 skin playfully called “Something”, you can now turn the phone you already own into a Phone 1 clone.
In typical Dbrand sarcastic fashion, the company is toying with the idea that it’s blatantly ripping off Nothing’s design aesthetic. However, he posits that this is different enough to qualify as “plagiarism”, which is not illegal. Nevertheless, the last time Dbrand tried to succeed with custom PlayStation 5 plates, Sony sent them a cease and desist. Dbrand ended up altering the plates to avoid being sued. In other words, these Nothing Phone 1 Dbrand skins may not last.

Nothing Phone 1 Dbrand Skins & Cases
So far, you can choose between four different devices with Something. For the skin version of the design, you can stick it on an iPhone 13 Pro Max, Google Pixel 6 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, or official Apple MagSafe charger. For the bumper version, you can only choose between these three phones.
Note that these skins actually mirror the actual innards of the phone in question. In other words, it doesn’t just lift the Nothing Phone 1 design, but shows what the actual interior of, say, a Pixel 6 Pro looks like. It’s a nice touch.
