Some Cons with the Smartphone

A lot of smartphone brands provide stereo speakers for a better multimedia experience. But it is so sad that Oneplus has not provided them with their new device. Even they didn't provide them in Oneplus 8 and 8 Pro which were their flagship devices.
As like other Oneplus smartphones, the Oneplus Nord also doesn't have the much-needed headphone jack. Though the device comes with optical image stabilization (OIS), its ultrawide and macro camera are so weak for the price the smartphone comes.

Oneplus has also not done a good job in the built quality. Though it has provided gorilla glass 5 protection, it comes with a plastic frame. The UFS 2.1 storage is easily available in most of the midrange smartphones. Oneplus could have done a better job by providing UFS 3.0 instead of UFS 2.1.


Comparing with its competitors 

On the under 30,000 price segment, you get smartphones like the Realme X3 series, Oppo Reno 3 series, Samsung Galaxy A51, Realme X2 pro, Oneplus 7, etc which can compete with the oneplus Nord. Though you get better cameras from oppo and realme, you can enjoy the power of OIS. You will also enjoy the powerful and efficient 765G processor which also has a 5G support. And most importantly, you get a bloatware-free clean software experience with the Oxygen OS based on Android 10 which is not provided in any other smartphone in this price range. left-sidebar
