The OnePlus Nord series of phones have always been about offering the best Android phone experience without compromising on affordability and features. Succeeding the original Nord, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G sports a handful of upgrades that makes it an even better all-rounder phone, we had the chance to try on it for the past two weeks and here’s why we think you will absolutely love it as we do.
Flagship performance and connectivity
With the Mediatek Dimensity 1200 5G SoC, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G screams efficiency and performance over other mid-range phones all thanks to the efficient 6nm process, so no matter what you do on it, be it playing League of Legends: Wild Rift or demanding games like Honkai Impact 3, it handles it like a champ with smooth 60 frames per second at the highest graphics setting.
Furthermore, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, which you can take advantage of to browse the web at faster speeds and have more reliable connections with Bluetooth accessories such as wireless earbuds.
Superb battery life and fast 65W charging
Battery anxiety is a thing of the past with the Nord 2 5G’s huge 4500mAh battery, as it handled our heavy day of texting and social media browsing with over 4 hours of screen on time effortlessly while leaving us around 20% of battery at the end of the day.
Running low of battery just because you forgot to charge your phone? The OnePlus Nord 2 5G’s speedy Warp Charge 65 will offer you a day’s power in just 15 minutes, and it goes from zero to hero battery life in a mere 45 minutes so that you can get back to work and play in no time.
Seriously good entertainment experience
Most mid-range phones come with boring displays and mono loudspeakers, but not this one.
The OnePlus Nord 2 5G elevates the mobile entertainment experience by employing a beautiful 6.43-inch Fluid AMOLED display that supports the sRGB and P3 color space, and dual-stereo speakers with customized DIRAC drivers that offers excellent volume and bass, they are a necessary combo for anyone to enjoy a great Netflix movie and unwind your day with your favorite playlist.
An excellent flagship grade camera with fun video features
OnePlus went a little further this time with the cameras of the Nord 2 5G, as the phone’s main camera is a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor that’s brought over from the flagship OnePlus 9, this camera sensor takes in 56% more light than the Nord’s camera, it also has optical image stabilization that reduces shakes in videos and improves low light performance.
As you can see in the samples above, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G’s camera is definitely no slouch in taking beautiful photos and very much on par with most flagship phones in the market, so you can definitely save some space in your bags and no longer lug around a heavy camera for that memorable road trip.
All thanks to the powerful performance, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G’s camera software now features a dual-view video mode that lets you expand your creativity in vlogging by having the front and main camera shoot videos simultaneously.
Furthermore, take control of how you want your videos to look like with the Movie mode, where you can control image settings such as White Balance, Exposure, Focus and ISO on the fly when you are in the middle of the shoot.

Unbeatable smooth and bloat-free software experience
