It’s no secret I’m a fan of the Nothing brand, I use Nothing Phone 2 and Earbuds 2 daily, but I was even a little taken aback by the design of the new CMF Phone 1 (and to an extent the CMF Watch Pro 2). Chunky, physically customisable and with it’s sharp lines and visible screws, the CMF Phone 1 is like something created for Aliens.

It raises the old debate around good design versus over-engineering – but I love the new utilitarian approach to the CMF brand. It takes the direction of the Nothing brand, strips it back and rebuilds it for a new use. The LED glyphs of the mainline Nothing phones have been replaced by a functional design – the rear of the case can be unscrewed and new colours attached, or extra accessories can be attached.
