Review OnePlus Nord CE 5G – From the looks of it, although similar, it can be seen that this OnePlus smartphone is cheaper. The 6.43-inch front screen is only accompanied by a punch-hole camera. Plus in the specifications, there is no mention of HDR10 content support. At least, still use the Full HD+ Fluid AMOLED panel complete with 90Hz refresh rate.
The camera provided has a resolution that has dropped from 32MP to 16MP f/2.5, with maximum full HD video recording. While at the back, the main sensor has increased in resolution, reaching 64MP f/1.8. But the OIS stabilization feature is omitted.
Likewise, the macro sensor is also absent on the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. What remains and remains the same is the 8MP f/2.3 ultra-wide sensor and the 2MP f/2.4 mono sensor. It can still record 4K video, plus it brings features such as AI Scene Detection and UltraShot HDR. the hardware itself is also a bit down, even though the chipset is newer.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G uses an 8nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chip, paired with memory options similar to the first Nord series. Starting from 6/128GB to 12/256GB, like a 2021 Android flagship. However, there is one key feature that is primarily present to characterize OnePlus smartphones in general.
Namely is the switch button to change the profile from ring to silent, replaced by the return of the 3.5mm audio jack. While the battery capacity is actually larger even though the body is thinner. Reaching 4,500 mAh, it can be charged up to 70% in 30 minutes, thanks to the support of Warp Charge 30T.
The OnePlus Nord CE 5G of course runs OxygenOS based on Android 11. Promising three years of security updates and two years of software, it is certain that this mid-range 5G Android smartphone will get Android 13 in the future.
