OnePlus Nord CE 5G Review: OnePlus, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer has established itself a significant position in the premium smartphone industry throughout the world, especially in India. The smartphone company is aggressively working on getting more customers in India’s cheap smartphone market, which is dominated by Xiaomi, Vivo, Samsung, Realme, and Oppo, with its Nord series.
OnePlus has launched its second Nord smartphone in India, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, after successfully releasing its first Nord smartphone in the mid-segment last year. The smartphone is offered in three colour options: Charcoal Ink, Silver Ray, and Blue Void, and three storage variants: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 12GB+256GB, all priced at Rs 22,999, Rs 24,999, and Rs 27,999, respectively. During the evaluation, I used the Blue Void color variant for more than a week, and here’s what I have to say about this OnePlus smartphone that is extremely inexpensive.
Despite stiff competition from other companies (particularly Xiaomi), the OnePlus Nord CE 5G is in a very favorable price position. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G features a 64MP triple camera system, a 90 Hz fluid AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 750G 5G Chipset, and the company’s trademark quick and smooth OxygenOS 11 to give a wonderful everyday user experience for Rs 25,000, making it a suitable pick for mid-segment customers.
In terms of design and appearance, the OnePlus Nord is stunning and has a luxury feel it. It will not disappoint you even if you hold it in your hands for several hours. The gadget features a modern and sleek design. In addition, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G’s rear panel features a matte surface that accumulates fingerprints lightly.
The Nord CE 5G is the thinnest OnePlus device since the OnePlus 6T, measuring 7.9mm thick and weighing 170 grams. The Nord CE 5G is also somewhat higher than the previous Nord. Overall, the design of this smartphone (like with other OnePlus phones) is quite appealing, and it will undoubtedly appeal to youthful customers, particularly those who have been waiting for an inexpensive Oneplus smartphone.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G features a power button on the right side of the smartphone, which worked well during our testing. There are volume rockers on the gadget, as well as a slot for a SIM card. The gadget contains a Type-C USB charging port on the bottom, as well as a loudspeaker and other features, such as a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was missing on the OnePlus Nord smartphone.
