In this letter, the impact of two phase shifting designs, namely coherent phase shifting and random discrete phase shifting, on the performance of intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) assisted non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is studied. Analytical and simulation results are provided to show that the two designs achieve different tradeoffs between reliability and complexity. To further improve the reception reliability of the random phase shifting design, a low-complexity phase selection scheme is also proposed in this letter.
