Hi everyone, this is the oneplus nord this is a phone that’s not available here in the united states where i live for some reason but oneplus was nice enough to help me take a look at it and so the prices that i’ll list will befor the uk and india and so i don’t really have an equivalent here in the united states. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/23/how-to-lock-apps-on-android/
but it seems to be under 500 here at least if you were able to buy one now it’s 379 pounds to 469 pounds and as you can see here’s the price in india as well there are two separate variants eight gigabytes of ram with 128 gigabytes of storage and 12 gigabytes of ram with 256 gigabytes of storage. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/22/best-20-tips-to-make-your-phone-serve-longer/
so you’ve got those two options and two colors as well gray onyx and blue marble now unfortunately when i took the wrapper off for the first time the camera was not recording for some reason but everything else is still in the package wrapped. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/22/best-android-tips-free-up-storage-on-your-android-phone/
so let’s go ahead and open it up and as you can see it says this way nord we’ll set that aside take a look at it in a moment and then inside the box we’ve got our normal paper work let’s take a look at it here so it says here’s a welcome letter and if you want to read it. https://worldgraphics20.com/2020/12/20/best-evolution-of-android-os-1-0-to-11-2020/
i’ll just zoom in here a little bit if you want to pause it and take a look at that and then also let’s see what we’ve got so we have a case so they included a tpu case which is always nice the note 20 ultra here in the united states at least doesn’t get a case so it’s nice to see that included and then we’ve got some other things here as well so we have a sim card removal tool.
then we have some oneplus nord stickers a quick start guide safety information and highest sar value ratings so here are the ratings if you’re curious about those and let’s set these a side we grab the sim card tool so we can take a look at the sim card tray and then inside the box we have a typical oneplus usb a to usbc adapter for charging.
it includes a warp charger now this will be interesting to use since i’ve never used a warp charger it’s a 30 watt charger that should charge the oneplus nord to70 percent from zero in 30 minutes or so so here you can see the ratings on the charger so it’ll beinteresting to try that out and let’s take a closer look at the oneplus nord.
so let’s take the wrapper off here and this is that really nice blue color and hopefully you can see this well through the camera and youtube hasn’t tweaked it too much with their compression but it’s a really nice color and let’s go around the outside edge and then we’ll talk about specs.
so of course we have the display i’ll talk about that in a moment on the right hand side of the phone you’ve got your power sleep wake button and then you’ve got your silent switch which is always nice to see on an android phone on the bottom you have a speaker usb c port another microphone here.
then we have our sim card tray so let’s go ahead and pop the sim card out or the tray out rather and this should be a dual sim card tray so we’ve got one for each side and then you’ve got a little rubber gasket on the outside edge so that you can have a little bit of water sealing protection although.
this is not ip rated on the left hand side we’ve got a volume rocker on the top we’ve got a microphone and then of course we’ve got cameras on the front and back so let’s talk about the internal specs and then talk about the specs of the camera.
now the display is a 6.44 inch 90 hertz amoled display so it’s not quite up to the spec of say a note 20 ultra or a oneplus 8pro but it should be plenty fast for most it’s 2400 by 1080 with 408 pixels per inch and supports p3 wide color.
it has gorilla glass 5 on the front and probably on the back it is glass i’m not sure if that’s what’s on the back though internally it has a snapdragon 765 g cpu from qualcomm and it also has anadreno 620 gpu again 8 gigabytes or 12 gigabytes of ram this is the 12 gigabyte variant with gigabytes of storage.
the storage is not upgradable now as far as the battery inside it’s 4115 milliamp hours again it has warp charge 30t so it should charge very quickly and let’s take a look at the cameras now the forward-facing cameras are pretty interesting on this phone.
it’s a 32 megapixel sony sensor with an f 2.45 aperture and supports 4k 60 video next to it we have an ultra wide 108 degree field of view 8 megapixel camera with an f 2.45 aperture now on the back this is where some people say they’re under whelmed with the cameras of course.
i’ll take a look at it in a little bit but the first camera is a 48 megapixel f 1.75 aperture sony sensor they took out of the oneplus 8 pro and it has optical image stabilization next there’s an 8 megapixel wide angle lens with an f 2.25 aperture and 119 degree field of view.
then we have a 5 megapixel depth sensor with an f 2.4 aperture and a 2 megapixel macro with an f 2.4 aperture now supposedly the back is good for 4k 30. so i’ll check that out in the settings again just to verify but let’s go ahead and turn it on now while this boots up.
i’ll talk about the wi-fi and this has 802.11 a b g n in ac so no wi-fi 6 but it also supports bluetooth 5.1 has nfc gps and all the other sensors you would expect so we’ll wait for it to boot up here and this has oxygen os 10.5 so android10 with all of the oxygen os stuff on top of it so i’ll go ahead and set it up i’ll take a closer look at it take some photos and again do a little bit of a comparison.
i’ll come back in a bit when it’s all set up to take a closer look now i have the oneplus nord completely set up and i’ve been using it for well since yesterday i got it all set up used it through the night and now it’s the next day and so the overall experience is really great.
i haven’t used oxygen os for a while and what they’ve done with this is sort of give you a simple stock android or really more of the google pixel experience but with a few things on top so of course it’s fully customizable and then you have this silent switch which i think all android phones should include.
