The ONEPLUS NORD probably the most hyped phone of 2020. Now you might have seen unboxing, full reviews, camera comparison, gaming test absolutely everything. So of course I'm not gonna talk about all of that rather, I'll be talking about my ownership experience. I've used the ONEPLUS NORD for close to 90 days now and here's my experience so far. So if you are considering buying a ONEPLUS NORD this might give you a glimpse of the ONEPLUS NORD experience.

First of all, we see the specs of ONEPLUS NORD briefly. It has snapdragon 765G. It's a gaming chipset, not the best snapdragon processor out there, but quite good. You get a 90-hertz AMOLED display with full HD resolution 2400*1080. It has a punch-hole display with two cameras on the front. It's a 32 megapixel main and 8-megapixel wide angle camera. On the back, it's a 4 camera setup with a 48-megapixel main sensor, 8 megapixels wide, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and 2-megapixel macro lens. It comes with android 10 oxygen os out of the box with that out I'm not going to talk about specs performance now that's there you guys know it. I know it. It can play PUBG, COD, edit photos, and multitask. It won't give you ultra HD speeds but it works quite well. 

So let talk about my ownership experiences of the ONEPLUS NORD and it starts right with oxygen os. Oxygen os is the best skin android could offer right now. It's skin and OEM skin and they do have good customization and useful feature like a quick reply in landscape mode. It supports very very few apps right now but most importantly it supports WhatsApp so suppose if I'm watching a video or even playing a game and I get a message pop up I just tap on it opens in split-screen mode reply and you tap back video plays.  These are small things ONEPLUS does which really help your day-to-day life. Another thing about ONEPLUS NORD compared to other android phone is absolutely no ads and they didn't forcefully bring their own app for every freaking google app that's like two messaging apps two email apps etc, plus for every new phone launch you don't get a push notification unlike other android phones but oxygen os has an adaptive battery as the biggest con, which kills a lot of apps to save battery, but hey you can easily turn it off in settings. I found it offers the best android experience we have right now after a pixel yes it kills the app, gets late updates, but those are some minor issues compared to extra useful features you get in oxygen os. 

The second thing I liked about the NORD experience is the display. So once you used a 90hz display and you can't go back from it. Theoretically, a 90-hertz display is twice as fast as 60 hertz so you will notice the difference. However a 120 hertz is not significantly faster than 90 hertz, also this is an AMOLED display. I'm not going into good AMOLED bad AMOLED debate but an average AMOLED is always better than a good LCD, and yes this is an HDR 10 plus display. 

The last thing which I really loved about ONEPLUS NORD is charging. There are 65 or 45-watt chargers out there but this is just 30 watt. but the ONEPLUS NORD has a 4115 mAh battery, it drains faster if you're a power user, but it barely makes it through the day. What makes the battery amazing is warp charging 

But It has a few problems as well. So for case, this is ONEPLUS latest device mean just launched before ONEPLUS 8T now ONEPLUS 8, 8 pro, and 8T have already received the Android 11 update but it not received yet. It will probably get it in 2021. Another thing is the cameras although love that they have included a wide-angle selfie camera but the software processing is just too much. if you take photos outdoors the HDR artifacts are clearly visible. It's too much sharpening at times. You will find a few problems such as adaptive battery, late android updates, mediocre camera, etc. But none of them in my opinion are a deal-breaker I believe the NORD series is to get more people in the ONEPLUS system. It's not for someone who has already used a ONEPLUS phone so you one plus guys stay away. For everyone else jumbling between that 25 to 30k range looking from a premium brand well, this is a good phone to consider but If you are a spec hungry person you have REALME X3 pro, SAMSUNG M51, this is not the best buy for the money.
