OnePlus continues its commitment to the lower mid-range with the aim of creating smartphones that follow its retail philosophy but are available to everyone.

OnePlus cares about providing a careful design in any of their smartphones. Although the body of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G is made of plastic, we have a protective glass that prevents possible scratches.

Personally, I love the selection of colors that OnePlus uses for their models. Its blue color, “Blue Haze” is soft and striking at the same time and thanks to the treatment of the tempered glass we get different shades and color reflections depending on the light reflected on the mobile.

Functionally, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G includes only a USB-C connection for connecting cables, a front-facing camera built into the top left corner of the screen, without a notch, and three rear cameras. It also retains the rocket button to quickly change the phone’s mode when needed.

The screen is 6.43 inches and weighs 189 grams so it is a very comfortable mobile to handle and store, suitable for almost any pocket or bag. The right mobile if what we are looking for is comfort and not a second screen on which to consume digital content on a regular basis.


On its front we will find a 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz, a quality that begins to take more and more presence among the devices of this range, as we could already see in the OnePlus Nord CE 5G, but that still represents an important differentiating point.

In addition, the OnePlus Nord 2 provides a more vivid and dynamic visual experience thanks to its new features such as AI Color Boost and AI Resolution Boost, which improve colors and increase the resolution of the most popular applications. And is that inside it will hide a MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI chipset that according to the announcement has been modified specifically for this terminal to “improve the photographic capacity, the screen, offer better response times and the execution of smoother games”.


OnePlus is clear that even if the user decides to cut back on performance, photography will always be an important decision factor when it comes to getting a new terminal, so in the OnePlus Nord 2 5G have opted to offer the best camera at the lowest price and for this they have pulled the best software to get through AI an automatic improvement of the photos we take.

Bringing significant improvements in night photography with OIS and the main sensor Sony IMX766 50MP, which is capable of capturing 56% more light than the Sony IMX586 of the first Nord. With the Ultra Nightscape mode, an enhanced version of OnePlus’ Nightscape mode, users can take better and brighter photos in low-light conditions with just 1 lux of illumination.

So, rounding out this section, we’ll also find a second 8MP wide-angle main camera with a 119.7-degree field of view and a 2MP monochrome sensor; plus a 32MP selfie camera on the front, with a Sony IMX615 sensor, the highest resolution front-facing camera on a OnePlus device to date.

Battery and performance

Battery-wise, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G features a dual-cell 4500 mAh battery with Warp Charge 65 fast charging technology, capable of charging from 0 to 100% in less than 35 minutes, with adaptive charging to maintain good battery health while charging overnight. That we can also see in the OnePlus 9, the difference is that in this case it does not include wireless charging.

In terms of performance, we have an SoC built with an 8-core ARM CPU (Cortex-A78 and Cortex-A55) and an Arm Mali-G77 MC9 GPU, which provides 65% faster CPU performance.

I ask and 125% GPU performance compared to the performance of the OnePlus Nord launched last


Software: OxygenOS 11.3

The first thing that strikes us without a doubt is the presence of the OxygenOS 11.3 operating system, the fastest and most responsive software from OnePlus to date, incorporating significant improvements in dark mode, Zen mode, one-handed operation functions and several permanent display options (AOD)

The mid-range is increasingly complete, it seems impossible to put a mobile more, but the good results OnePlus has obtained with the Nord range has encouraged them to improve their terminals and devote time and care to those who can not devote large budgets in a new mobile


The OnePlus Nord 2 5G, is a good terminal. It is very comfortable in the hand, is content, does not abuse a screen that we will not use and that would consume us battery, your camera focuses on improving the photos where our expertise does not reach and we hold a whole day of social networks. All this without reaching 400 euros which makes it a candidate to consider if we want to renew our terminal and at the same time we do not demand too much
