So now Let’s talk How this OnePlus Nord is different and what did OnePlus did to make it different
There is nothing new or anything that you haven’t seen before in a smartphone with the OnePlus Nord but
There are two things that OnePlus did Correctly
1. Choosing the right components
2. Kept User in mind
We are saying this because they choose the best available components for the price
Like, the display is AMOLED and has 90hz display with an under-display fingerprint so best possible combination and a big battery with fast charging and dual front-facing cameras.
Let’s talk OnePlus Nord cameras:
The main camera is 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor with OIS, yes with Optical Image Stabilization this is the only phone currently that comes with OIS in this price range
The camera sensor is the same as the oneplus 8 and the Oneplus 7/7T(click for details) but the thing is it is well optimized now. OnePlus is saying it is a Flagship camera that’s not completely true because it’s using a 765G and other cameras like 8MP ultrawide and 5MP depth and 2MP macro are just decent enough.
You can say as Apple did with iPhone SE 2020 in which you get the same sensor as the iPhone 8 with a better optimization it provided good results.
Same thing with OnePlus Nord it’s not the flagship camera but an improved Camera with OIS which Good enough and it will be very tough to beat in this price range.
The front camera is also 32MP Sony IMX 616 which will give you good selfies for sure and 8MP selfie is you can say Cherry on the cake, good to have but don’t expect too much it will give decent pictures in good lighting.
This is a feature that nobody notices on the specs sheet but you will feel it when you will use it its not dual vibration motor like flagship smartphones but it is very fine-tuned we can assure you because of the optimization that Oneplus did OneoPlus Nord Vibration motor you will feel the difference especially if you were using a midrange phone befor
The 765G processor
Oneplus Nord is powered by the Snapdragon 765g which will do all your tasks smoothly but for gaming, you need to stick with medium settings.
And the slow-motion will not be as good because of the limitation of the hardware.
That’s pretty much it for the OnePlus Nord. But now let’s answer a few questions that you might want to ask
