OnePlus Nord 5G review and why you should definitely buy it on Amazon’s Great Indian Festival?

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the new OnePlus smartphone. OnePlus is known for its high-end phones but now they have launched the OnePlus Nord 5G in the middle segment.

Like many Indians, I was also excited by the thought of owning an OnePlus phone, which is known for its premium quality. So, finally, I bought the 12GB+256GB variant of the OnePlus Nord 5G last month for Rs 29,999. I chose the Blue Marble colour cause it looked gorgeous at the very first look.

After using it for about a month, I got the answer of why OnePlus Nord 5G created that much amount of hype upon its launch. So now, I would like to share my views with you on why you should definitely buy the OnePlus Nord 5G and more importantly in this upcoming Amazon Great Indian Festival, which starts from 16th October for Prime members and from 17th October for all users.

What stands apart for the OnePlus Nord 5G from the rest?

Design

Although, the Nord is having a glass back and a plastic frame which isn’t one of the most durable options, still its glass back makes it look like a premium device, no less than any OnePlus flagship device. On the front, the pill-shaped cut out to house the two front cameras also adds to its look.

It also has a slider on its side for making your phone on silent, vibration or ring mode. The speaker and sim tray are at the bottom but there is no headphone jack. Overall, it looks like a premium device from the very first instance.

Display

The display of Nord is unmatchable in this price range. It has a 6.44-inch fluid AMOLED display with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution and 408ppi but what stands apart is its 90Hz refresh rate.

Performance

OnePlus Nord is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G which is a pioneer midrange chipset and comes with support for 5G which means Nord is a 5G capable smartphone. The 5G connectivity support is the biggest advantage of Nord over the rest of the phones in this price range. This makes it future proof as whenever 5G comes you will be able to experience the high-speed cellular connectivity.

The Nord runs on Android 10 beneath the OnePlus’ much cleaner version of Android dubbed as OxygenOS, which is one of the key highlights of this phone.

The 12GB of RAM makes it super quick to handle any kind of tasks you throw at it. It can easily and efficiently handle all your daily tasks along with some gaming as well.

Battery

The phone comes with a pretty standard 4115mAH battery, which could have definitely been better. But what wins the game for Nord in this battery segment is that it can be charged using a much faster Warp Charge 30T.

From my personal experience, the Nord takes around 45 minutes to get fully charged, which is a huge advantage. And you can even lower the refresh rate to 60Hz in case you want longer battery life.

Camera

OnePlus Nord has a 48MP Sony IMX 586 primary sensor along with an 8MP ultra camera with 119 field-of-view, a 5MP macro shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. In the front, it offers a dual-camera array consisting of a 32MP Sony IMX616 sensor coupled with an 8MP ultrawide shooter.

The images are great when compared to other devices in this price range. Although it won’t provide you with flagship-level pictures, it is definitely more than good enough to click normal pictures. The 48MP Sony IMX 586 primary sensor can handle almost all scenes efficiently and the front camera is also pretty good enough.

Why you should buy the OnePlus Nord 5G during Amazon’s Great Indian Festival?

The OnePlus Nord 5G was launched in India on 4th August 2020. I bought the 12GB+256GB variant in September for Rs 29,999.

After just 2 months from its launch, Amazon will be offering the 12GB+256GB variant of the OnePlus Nord 5G at just Rs 27,999. Along with this, there will also be 10% instant discount on HDFC debit and credit cards which will make your effective price around Rs 25,000.

Getting the high-end variant of the OnePlus Nord 5G for just around Rs 25,000 is an absolute win-win situation. It can’t get any better!
