OnePlus charted its own path in its inception in the world of smartphones as the company that offers phones with powerful specifications at affordable prices at the same time, making most of its phones among the best Flagship Killer devices for a long period of time, and that may have changed somewhat since the company has entered The competition in flagship phones, and some may think that it may have abandoned the principle of value for price, but the OnePlus Nord 2 is the company's answer to all the skeptics.

The OnePlus Nord 2 comes with many improvements compared to the first Nord phone, as it is faster thanks to a new powerful processor, it has also become better in terms of photography as it comes with a new Sony IMX766 sensor, and we also have a good battery with super fast charging among the best in this price category.

Nord 2 unboxing

OnePlus Nord 2 Unboxing

The phone box looks very nice when you first see it, we definitely have the phone inside, a 65W fast charger as well as a USB-A-to-C cable and a clear case. Unfortunately, there are no wired headphones inside, but there are some countries that require the company to release the phone with these headphones, such as France.

The phone also comes with a pre-installed screen protector, but we do not recommend relying on it for a long time because it is completely cheap. It is true that it will protect the phone from scratches, but it is clearly affected by fingerprints, and it is not easy to clean so we advise you to remove it immediately.

Design

Nord 2 does not come with a major breakthrough in design compared to the first Nord device and the evidence is that it has the same dimensions and the same size and has a flat screen as well with curved edges, but at least it does not come with any compromises, we still have excellent materials used in the manufacturing even though the phone has He gets some negative opinions about the lack of aesthetics in the design.

We have a back panel made of Gorilla Glass 5 and it has a nice smooth texture, the rear camera module is very protruding but it is not the problem we have to complain as all the modern phones come with the same camera protrusion.

The phone is not large and the user is able to hold it and control it with one hand normally. On the right side of the phone we have the power button and the silent mode button, a feature that we only find on OnePlus phones, while the volume buttons are located on the left edge.

The phone was launched in three distinct colors, blue, gray and green, and is only intended for the Indian market. Gray is good and does not attract finger smudges while our favorite color is beautiful blue which has a touch of beauty even more evident on the back panel.

The only negative point is that it attracts fingerprints but is barely visible and is easy to implement and only requires a tissue or a small piece of cloth.

Display

We have almost the same screen as last year's model, a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel, with FHD + quality, and supports a refresh rate of 90 Hz, and there is also a protection layer of Gorilla Glass 5, a feature that we find in most phones of this price category, but the screen unfortunately will not be as smooth and pure as its counterpart in OnePlus 9 Pro which comes with better quality and supports 120Hz refresh rate.

Recommending this phone can be difficult for any user who is switching from a phone that has a screen that supports 120Hz refresh rate, but it is hard to do. It is expected that most users who will upgrade to this phone will currently have phones with 60Hz screens, in which case that upgrade will be noticed in terms of refresh rate although it certainly won't make it the best screen ever.

We have a fingerprint sensor under the screen since it's an AMOLED model, not IPS LCD, and overall the screen's performance was excellent in terms of multimedia viewing and gaming.

Performance

For the first time ever in OnePlus history, a phone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor has not arrived. Instead, the company decided to use a processor from MediaTek, the MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI, which was developed specifically for that phone.

That processor may be upgraded, of course, but it's not much different from the original Dimensity 1200 we saw earlier on. Oppo Reno6 Pro 5G andRealme GT Neo.

We tested the phone and found that this processor is quite powerful and can handle all the tough tasks and run all the games and applications, which is the same impression we got from the performance of OnePlus Nord.

This processor is close to its leading counterparts but cannot be compared to them anyway, the user will not feel any failure in performing the usual daily tasks although there may be a delay of a few seconds when switching between applications.

We have a 6 + 128 GB version but it is only exclusive to the Indian market, and there are two other versions which are 8 + 128 GB, 12 + 256 GB. We recommend to buy 12 + 256 GB especially since there is no support to install an external memory card in order to expand the internal storage space.

The phone supports 5G networks, of course, just like the first version and comes with Android 11 pre-installed and the OxygenOS 11.3 user interface. The company promised to send future software updates for two years, but we see that it is a short period and may reduce the chances of the phone in competition with Samsung and Oppo phones.

Camera

We have a triple rear camera but the only bright spot is the 50MP Sony IMX 766 main sensor with optical stabilization which really impressed us and did really well in the photos we took.

We also have an 8-megapixel Sony IMX 355 Ultra Wide Lens and a 2-megapixel GalaxyCore GC02M1 Macro Sensor as well.

We have the camera application, Oxygen, which we are used to seeing in Realme and Oppo phones, which edits photos and videos using artificial intelligence, which is shown in the captured images saturated with colors.

Finally, the phone packs a single 32-megapixel front camera, which is a Sony IMX 615 sensor, unlike last year's model, which had a dual front camera.

This camera takes excellent pictures and we did not notice any difference between it and the selfie camera of last year's phone, but its only drawback is that it supports 1080p video shooting at 30 frames per second.

Battery

The phone comes with a 4,500 mAh battery, which is an upgrade over last year's phone battery.

There is support for 65W fast charging which the company says can fully charge the phone's battery in just 30 minutes. It is worth noting that the battery is divided into two cells, each one comes with a capacity of 2225 mAh

The battery has a good life of course, up to at least a day even if it is heavy use, but the real advantage is the super fast charging that outperforms the flagship Samsung phones that come at twice the price.

The user can watch videos and movies continuously for 16 hours, he can make calls for more than a day without interruption, which means that the Nord 2 battery is distinguished and is among the strengths of the phone.

Nord 2 Pros and Cons

  • Luxurious design and premium materials are used
  • Excellent high-quality screen is an ideal choice for lovers of watching videos and movies on the phone screen
  • A powerful processor capable of efficiently performing all daily tasks
  • Glass layer to protect the screen from scratches and bumps
  • The phone is available in more than one version for the user's choice
  • Excellent rear camera is better than the previous phone camera by a noticeable difference, especially the main sensor
  • The front camera is the best among the OnePlus phones ever and takes excellent selfies
  • Stereo headphones for a premium audio experience
  • Excellent battery that has a long life
  • Excellent color options You feel as if you are in the heart of nature surrounded by plains and oceans
  • Almost the same screen and design as last year's model
  • The secondary sensors didn't add much to the photographic experience
  • We hope that the phone will be available in all markets and not be limited to some countries only

OnePlus Nord 2 Review

8.7Expert Score
Excellent phone but without any surprises or attractions for the user

If you are a fan of OnePlus and love its products, this phone is likely to be an ideal choice for you as it comes at an affordable price and therefore you can buy it instead of the flagship phones such as OnePlus 9 Pro, especially if your budget is limited. The phone comes with a great design, beautiful screen, excellent main camera, front camera is the best, and fast shipping, we think this phone is a perfect deal especially if you want to buy an excellent Flagship Killer at an affordable price.
