The most unselfish selfie

Should you buy it?

Now let’s talk about why you want to buy it…..Good question.

As you see Nord is unique on its own…..  I’m gonna tell you why

Let’s start with the specs then!

So the phone actually comes in three variants

Storage

6 GB + 64 GB

Storage

8GB + 128 GB

Storage

12 GB + 256 GB

This is all UFS 2.1 storage. Apart from the storage and ram options all of them sport the same hardware underneath.

The Nord sports a Snapdragon 765G, which is very close to the Snapdragon 845 in raw performance but does bring a lot of new features from the recent flagship processors like 5G. On the display front, OnePlus settled with a 6.44-inch 90Hz 1080p AMOLED display. You also get 180Hz touch sampling with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

My only gripe here is the omission of wireless charging, with the Nord you get the usual OnePlus dash charging. The phone does have a big 4115mAh battery, so this should easily last through a whole working day and more.  The phone lacks a 3.5mm audio jack so no wired audio here. They did just announce the OnePlus Buds, so there’s that.

The great thing here? It has the same primary camera module on the back as the OnePlus 8. If you have an OnePlus 8 or have seen reviews, the hardware is really good, it’s definitely not flagship level but it comes pretty darn close.

Coming to the nitty-gritty details, the Nord has a Quad camera setup with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 48MP primary lens with OIS (Sony IMX586), a 5MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there’s a dual-cam setup with a primary 32MP lens (Sony IMX616) and an 8MP secondary ultra angle lens.

Clearly for Nord, OnePlus focused a lot on the cameras, even at the cost of some other options like wireless charging and an IPX rating for water and dust resistance.

   According to ANTUTU test Oneplus Nord bench mark score is 318889 points. This is quite impressive.

     So if you want good phone in a low budget then it might be or should be in your list.
