Budget gadgets are usually stuck with drab designs and lackluster specs, a challenge Nothing's sub-brand CMF has decided to take on. The relatively new offshoot from Nothing focuses on the extreme lower end of the market and has until now sold a smartwatch, wireless earbuds, and chargers. Today marks its first smartphone, the CMF Phone 1, becoming available in the US through a beta program. It's accompanied by unique accessories, plus the new Buds Pro 2 and Watch Pro 2.

What's most remarkable about these devices is the price. I have tested cheap and flagship smartphones for nearly a decade, and after setting up the CMF Phone 1, I was pretty surprised to hear it costs just $199—it looks, feels, and performs nearly twice the price. The Watch Pro 2, an equally well-built smartwatch, will set you back just $69, and the Buds Pro 2 are $59. Better yet, they're not just cheap devices. There's plenty of character in their designs that make you want to use them.
