A gamer will love this device’s 90Hz refresh rate, but he has to secure himself with a power bank, as it comes with a 4115 mAh battery which lasts a day with mild gaming, social media, browsing, chit-chat, a decent calling with a few selfies.

A capsule-shaped punch hole dual camera is situated on the left side. 3.5 mm jack has been omitted so you have to use Type-C port for earphones

Camera: Feel Happiness in Pouts

OnePlus Nord comes with 6 cameras set up, A quad camera tray on the back, and a dual-camera capsule in the front. The primary sensor took the charge of a 48-megapixel sensor

with f/1.75 aperture mold with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and Electronic Image Stabilisation(EIS). There is one 8MP ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.25 aperture having a

119-degree field of view. One 5MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. The dual camera set up in the front comprises a 32MP primary sensor having f/2.45 aperture packed with EIS and an 8MP wide-angle sensor with the same aperture having a 105-degree field of view.

On testing, we’ve found that in daylight conditions primary camera clicks pictures with good details and crispiness, on the other hand, ultra-wide cameras lack the punchiness of the colors, and the macro sensor also lacks the detailing. The portrait modes give you excellent results with a great bokeh effect.

Low light mode isn’t good comparatively, it lacks details and produces noisy images in NIghtscape mode.

For selfie lovers, you need not lose hope. It clicks great selfies with good details. You can shoot 1080P video at 30/60 fps and 4K video recording at 30 fps with rear-facing cameras. Whereas in super-slow motion you can shoot 1080P video at 240 fps. The front camera also offers 4K video recording at 30/60 fps and 1080P at 30 fps.

Display: Game changer mid-ranger

Yes, you heard that right, With the fame of One plus, OnePlus Nord really a game-changer mid-ranger. Packed with 408 PPI density and 6.44-inch Amoled display gives that punchiness and crispiness in viewing angles which a mid-ranger must-have. And when it comes to the touch experience OnePlus Nord is hard to neglect. 90Hz refresh rate gives your thumb a buttery smooth experience.

When we compare the display of OnePlus Nord with One plus 8 you will sharply notice their edges, they are not curved like One plus 8 but still, OnePlus Nord holds waters when one talks about its viewing angles and contrast ratios. OnePlus Nord also holds the Heartbeats with its charming in-display fingerprint sensor.

Price: The deciding factor for many

If you are hunting for a decent phone with great UI, UX, and buttery smooth performance with a punch of 5G Technology under 30000, you must go with OnePlus Nord.

The OnePlus Nord price ranges from 24,999 to 29,999 depending upon the variant.

For 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage this amount will be 27999. In my opinion, if your pocket allows just a bit more exposure then you must go with 12GB RAM/ 256GB storage variant. Spending just Rs. 2000 moreover 8GB/128GB variant you will get 12GB/ 256GB storage variant just in 29,999 which is not a bad deal I guess.

OnePlus Nord Final Verdict –

The Smartphone market is getting broader day by day, a lot of new launches has been there in a day or two, it is good that customer gets a lot of options in a similar price range but it is bad to due to the confusion among the different species with a same price range.

So here we try to reduce your confusion level with our conclusion, As far as the technology i.e. 5G provided by the OnePlus Nord is a good option for those who are eagerly looking for updated technologies and use their smartphones for around 2 to 3 years. For our Selfie lovers, you people will not be sad after trying this OnePlus Nord punchy camera’s pictures, but it may not live to your expectations when you clicked pictures in the night life.

The battery is good for those who are professional and just rely on a few calls, a bit of chit-chat, quiet of browsing and social media, and playing games in their lunch timings. 30W warp charger will make your phone full of battery juice in 70 minutes, it is a good thing. For heavy users, you may disappoint with its battery.

Overall it is a good phone for those who want a decent phone with a decent price range and decent technology. You can buy this 5G phone in Amazon or OnePlus site
