I don't known why I started hating all tech YouTubers reviews they all seem just extension ads for companies.
Gsmarena is left unbiased.

They could have saved so much money if they removed the two useless cameras at the back and the extra one in the front. Those funds could have gone to improving the ultra-wide camera or Better internals Like speakers or something.

I’m an iPhone user but I’m positively surprised by this OnePlus. Sure, it got some shortcomings but any smartphone out there has shortcomings in one way or another. Even iPhones. 😉

Overrated phone
GSMArena rocks. Most unbiased reviews in times when others endorse certain brands directly or indirectly.

No, NORD at all. That is a design "inspired" by Realme XT.
'Back to root' hype lol.. Just a midrange not flagship killer.

Lol, why not complain about no removable battery too while you're at it :D

6:15 Really makes me wonder just how much the depth sensor is actually used when taking portrait mode shots. Seems more like a glorified decoration to me.

This phone is really nothing special: mediocre photos, mediocre audio and no jack.
Yea overall keeping my 7 pro.

Why complaints about the speaker? I have a Nord too. It's speaker is very loud. And Quality is up to the mark

Great Video!
I just got one for me. I just use it for normal media usage with casual gaming PUBG & COD... Decent camera to play with photos......It does the job. Planning to have it for another 2~3 years with 5G as a future proof.

Hey guys I was wondering what oneplus phone has the smallest screen size from oneplus 7 and above? I tried to google it but didn't get the right results, so I thought a person's mind might be more useful :))

Review Google Pixel 4a too and compare with one plus nord
Should i buy this or a71 5g Or Realme X3?
Is OnePlus moving away from the stock android experience with OxygenOS 11?

Better off going to Swappa for a 7t in great condition for $350 or a 7 pro in good condition for $375.

Lionel B:
No headphone jack and SD slot, only 2 really "usable" cameras, a pill shape hole, this phone is not what I was hoping...
Not to mention it was overhyped by OP.
At least Oxygen OS is good and battery life is OK...
Caught well those drops for mid range
That GamePlay
That GamePlay:
I like the Nord but those Pixel 4a photos,crisp audio and stereo speakers will leave you wanting more than speed in this social media times of ours ... So yes pixel🔥🔥

Have a review who's better one plus nord or huawei nova 7 5G bro
Been in store yesterday and checked out all latest one plus and tbh their screens are dim and not as good as huawei phones., plus are too big all of them. Pixel definitely wins here.

This is the only review that has a possitive feed back on the camera of the nord😁 just saying✌

Well, what's the best phone in this category? It would be nice to know the best alternative at this price point at the end of the review.

Abhishek Mukhopadhyay:
How can a manufacturer that produces expensive flagships, produce a flagship killer? It will end up cannibalising its own premium product. I have the Realme X2 pro. Now that's a real flagship killer.

Watching on My One plus Nord❤️
12/256 Blue Marble
It's buttery smooth Device with Oxygen Os..🤗(10/10)
"Fingerprint reader" -Is Quick And Fast (9/10) (More fingerprints doesn't Recognise sometimes

AmOLED fluid Display 90hz is Good and smooth :(09/10) Viewing Ankles on white background also showing reflection and rainbow effect
Video Content Viewing is Awesome and Enjoyable.(9/10) my Old Honor 8 pro contents where having more Natural Colours.
√Alert Slider: Very Useful function All devices Must Have now.(10/10)
√Haptic Feedback on this device is On the better side,No Lag..(8.5/10)
Built Quality is mix of Plastic and Glass as many YouTubers say METAL is Always best & yes it Feels more premium in hand but I don't feel anything difference and normally use with the case 😅
Glass finsish is awesome and it's very comfortable light weight in hand so that's my preference ONE HAND USAGE (9/10)

Rear Camera -8.5/10( Clicks alternate best or normal.... IT'S A HIT OR A MISS) OIS VIDEO FOOTAGE IS AWESOME
Ultra Wide is Steady And pretty Cool
2× DIGITAL MODE (4/10) GIVING SOME PINK AND GREENISH TINT PROCESSING HAVING ERROR AND GLITCHES ON MANY PHOTOS(Attached pics Amazon Reviews) (Before this issue was not there but now after Updates i noticed they can fix by OTA Updates.(((ONE PLUS PLEASE FIX THIS SOON)))

Front camera-7/10(not good in low light,OIL PAINT LIKE IMAGE ,Pink Grainy) updates came but still camera dept have to be fixed
Camera photo processing takes 2 seconds time not as Fast as A flagship it's A MIDRANGER but below flagship😁
Depth Cam: Is Decent
√Macro Camera : Actually Why they Included this 2mp in this phone as that what 20k other Chinese Brands do instead an 8 or 13mp Telephoto lens would have improved the cam completely

AFTER UPDATE 10.5.7:: FRONT CAMERA HAS IMPROVED ALOT Now it clicks Better low light Images Still processing takes few seconds

nothing Much to Talk about Macro Not mucu Improvements.

√√GCam I installed but not all features ultrawide fixed on it,Need a stable version Soon.

Monospeaker is loud but steroe means it would have been with hands we cover sides sometimes
Battery backup: 6.30-7 hrs of SOT normal usage Browsing & youtube ...standby u will get full day almost with 20% juice left
30watt dartCharging take around 50-60 mins
Many Issues have to be fixed through OTA updates in coming months (GETTING FIXED AND IMPROVING)
If your preference is not Gaming and not that camera centric person

Slight pinkish tint bottom of device on side bottom on grey background,Dialer side (DARK THEME)under 0-20 % brightness if we search for in depth
And After seeing it I btw keep checking it....but it is not a negative to avoid this device
(After Updates 10.5.7 (used one plus Updater app) it has Reduced to a limit by display Calibration but still it persist in gray background through sides and more at bottom of display,But now below 10% Tint is less and visible in 20%)

Lockbox Has some errors when selecting files..still there after Updates also
Gallery ,Filemanager takes 2-3 seconds to load photos and Videos
√√3.5mm jack is missing atleast they could have included Adaptor in box now have to purchase don't know how the sound output will be from that.
^Some YouTube videos are Getting cropped in when zooming in.... but cinematic are best and accurate
✓My Transparent Phone case which I recieved started becoming Yellow in 2 weeks I don't know howi tried cleaning but but still.😁...

Started using White theme😆 Google Dialer (contacts/settings/theme) Dialer as I can still see pink tint on grey background Dialer.

Camera Has Improved slightly after Update

Battery backup SOT I GET 6:30-7 HRS
And a full day of charge just plug it in evening in 40-50 mins boom it's Charged

I picked this device as my strict budget was 30k and other choices where Realme X2 Pro and K20 pro and 7t was not on my budget all are an year old device but my preference was Clean Os with Normal Social media usage not performance oriented..
one plus 7t was a much better choice but everything have pros and cons
Recent reviews of 7t was negatives on battery backup
5G More or less will take above 1& half-2yr to come to india i will usa a device min 3yrs
so Hope this wont disappoint me.

when is pixel 4a review. can we get a date.
Any bugs in the software
I can get the 256gb S10e model for the same price as the Nord.. and the camera, lack of headphone jack, no IP68 and no stereo are really a bummer.
I'm going for the S10e. I don't need that much more from a phone anyway.
This first review I've watched/read that hasn't shot down the 2-megapixel macro camera.

To me the batterylife and OxygenOS is what makes it a Oneplus phone. I wish I could get a flagship oneplus 5.1 inch screen though. (please oneplus)
