ONEPLUS NORD

Priced comfortably within this budget segment is the OnePlus Nord. It is a phone that promises a flagship-like experience at the fraction of what one would expect to pay for a flagship device. However, its price tag that's well under the 30,000 mark is no indication of the phone's capabilities.

Hidden underneath the hood, this chipset from Qualcomm helps the phone perform without a hitch and handles gaming as well as tasks of daily use easily. The OnePlus Nord also offers a number of software optimisations, including the ones for the display which combined with the panel's support for fast 90Hz refresh rate help the OnePlus Nord offer smooth scrolling between menus and improved responsiveness within all scenarios, including games. The OnePlus Nord comes with four cameras at the back. This set-up includes a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 5MP depth sensor. The dual setup on the front includes a 32MP main and an 8MP wide-angle camera.
