OnePlus Nord 2 5G Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a more affordable alternative to the OnePlus 9. It looks and feels just as good and gaming performance is strong.

Great gaming performance ; Near flagship-grade primary camera ; OnePlus 9-beating selfie camera ; Good value ; Strong stereo speakers

Mediocre battery life ; No big screen updates ; No IP rating, expandable storage or wireless charging

OnePlus Nord 2 review

 

The OnePlus Nord 2 makes a few major changes to the company's mid-range formula - and it's still a top choice.

Strong performance Fantastic fast charging A good camera experience

Only 90Hz screen Lacklustre design No IP rating

The OnePlus Nord 2 is an exciting addition to the mid-range phone market, with some high-end specs and a great experience so far. Whether this will be the best phone at this price point remains to be seen, but so far it seems like a top choice.

OnePlus Nord 2 review: the Nord’s mid-range reign endures

 

The OnePlus Nord 2 is one of the best cheap phones out there right now, it has everything from style to speed

Very long battery life and quick charge time ; Excellent performance ; Decent camera system

No 3.5mm headphone jack or MicroSD card slot ; You can’t charge it wirelessly ; It’s not completely waterproof

The OnePlus Nord 2 has everything you could need from a phone and manages to squeeze it all into a more affordable package. You do have to make a few sacrifices and everything about this phone is good rather than great, but that doesn't take away from...

OnePlus Nord 2 review: Mid-range royalty

 

It's the Nord for the second time around. But can it really compete with flagships?

Fast performance delivered by powerful processor ; Good battery life ; Super-fast charging ; Fluid and bright display ; Attractive design

Quite a chunky phone ; More competition in the market than before ; Ultra-wide camera is poor

Using the second-gen Nord as a daily device for a couple of weeks has left us with the feeling that very little else is required for a great phone experience. Aside from the cameras setup it feels virtually no different to using a proper flagship phone.

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Review

 

Does the follow-up to OnePlus' affordable phone hit all the right notes as its predecessor, or does it fall under the increasing competition that's emerged since? Let's take a look.

– Great performance, excellent camera, and good value for money

– Mediocre battery life and no IP rating

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a very good phone in an affordable package, and it should impress you with its processing performance and photography abilities. However, it’s slightly let down by mediocre battery life and the lack of an official IP rating.

OnePlus Nord 2 review

 

The OnePlus Nord 2 is a return to form, delivering impressive specs and a powerful main camera at a reasonable price - and OxygenOS is still the GOAT.

Flagship processor ; Impressive main camera ; Understated design ; Strong software

Thick body ; Only 90Hz display ; Out-paced by rivals on value

The Nord 2 makes a strong case for itself. The Dimensity 1200-AI chipset is one of the most powerful you’ll find for the price, the understated design remains appealing, and the main camera will outclass most rivals. While Xiaomi and Realme may deliver...

OnePlus Nord 2 review: Budget marvel now available as a PAC-MAN special edition

 

The first non-Qualcomm OnePlus phone is a fantastic all-rounder at a very reasonable price, and the PAC-MAN model is very cute, too

Impressive battery life ; Rocket-ship performance ; Good stills photography

Weak graphics performance ; Disappointing video capabilities

All of which contributes to what is a highly positive overall picture for the OnePlus Nord 2. It isn’t perfect, of course: there’s no wireless charging, microSD card slot or IP rating, and video capture is restricted to a disappointing 1080p at 30fps,...

OnePlus Nord 2 review

 

Flagship killer or failed assassin?

Good value ; A top-notch gaming phone ; Vibrant primary camera ; Ultra-fast charging ; Classy design

Battery life ain’t great

This flagship killer is here for a good time, but not a long time.

OnePlus Nord 2 Review: Best value mid-ranger?

 

OnePlus has once again launched a highly affordable alternative to its flagship range, bringing a bunch of great features for a lot less money.

Packs in most key features from pricier OnePlus 9 ; Doesn't get as hot as Snapdragon 888 ; Powerful audio and great screen ; Uses an excellent Sony image sensor for primary camera ; Better battery life than OnePlus 9 despite same capacity

Can't quite match Snapdragon 888 for overall performance ; Wi-Fi 6 tops out at 80MHz (1200Mbps) ; 2-megapixel camera is worthless - why is it even there?

OnePlus Nord 2 Review

 

The Nord 2 5G is a fine all-rounder, with strong performance, an excellent main camera, rapid charging, and a general sense of competence to its design and software.

Fine main camera ; Strong performance ; Clean software

No major improvements to display ; Design slightly drab ; No telephoto lens

OnePlus hasn’t so much killed its flagship OnePlus 9 series as seamlessly supplemented it with a cheaper alternative. The Nord 2 5G is a fine all-rounder, with strong performance, an excellent main camera, rapid charging, and a general sense of...
