While some might be disappointed with the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, most people were amazed at how good the device is despite its price point. At least we can now say OnePlus didn’t forget its initial watchword which was “Flagship Killer”. This arena seems to have been taken over by Xiaomi‘s Poco line considering how great devices they make and the price point.
But the Nord series are great smartphones and OnePlus has made a number of them for a long time now with the most recent being the Nord 2 5G. It has some pretty decent features such as the 6.43-inch fullHD+ Fluid AMOLED flat display (90Hz refresh rate) that is amazing on its own and then you get other cool specs such as a triple camera setup, a big battery, and 5G just to say the least.
The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 2100 AI chipset which gives it the power needed to process data faster thanks to its 8GB/12GB of LPDDR4X RAM that allows operations and gaming experience to be as fluid as possible. You also get a whopping 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage and as you already know, this is a fast smartphone in every sense.
The front of the smartphone is made of glass and the same with the back while its frame is made of plastic. However, you get a solid build quality and sturdy feel when using the device. Below are some cool pictures of the OnePlus Nord 2 5G.
1. Lots of cameras
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G has a triple rear camera setup which includes a 50MP (f/1.9 aperture, wide lens, 1.0um pixel size, PDAF, OIS) then an 8MP (f/2.3 aperture, 119-degree lens), and lastly another 2MP (f/2.4 aperture, monochrome) and a single flash all of which produces really great pictures both in daylight and in lowlight situations.

3. Multiple color options

7. ColorOS vs OxygenOS
Since OnePlus merged with Oppo not quite long ago, many have been wondering whether the merging will be the demise of the OxygenOS but the company’s boss Pete Lau made it known that OxygenOS will continue to survive as the merging is just to help the company reach a wider market far from its local home market, China.
