Historically, OnePlus has been about making high-end phones for a lower price than the competition. The same can’t be said for the latest OnePlus 9 series, but the OnePlus Nord 2 5G is taking on that mantle.

The mid-range phone market is an extremely competitive space, with great options from the Google Pixel 4a to the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, but the OnePlus Nord 2 features specs that allow it to hold its own in that space.

In fact, the OnePlus Nord 2 is one of the very best phones in this segment of the market. It features some impressive specs including a 50MP main rear camera, 65W fast-charging and a 6.43-inch 1080 x 2400 display with a 90Hz refresh rate.

That screen offers a good experience, although some will be disappointed that the company hasn’t stretched to a 120Hz refresh rate here. That said, it offers good picture quality at a suitable size for many people.

One odd quirk is that the company has moved to a MediaTek chipset for the very first time, but it was seemingly the right decision, as we’ve found it offered improved performance when compared to the original OnePlus Nord.

The other highlight of the OnePlus Nord 2 is strong battery life, as we found it would always last a full day of usage even when we were pushing the phone to its limits. If you find it doesn’t, there’s also 65W fast charging that sees your phone go from 0% to full in just 30 minutes.

The OnePlus Nord 2 doesn’t have any game-changing features, but as a total package it offers a top experience that many will enjoy considering its lower price than a lot of other phones right now.

So if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to a flagship, you should consider the OnePlus Nord 2.

The OnePlus Nord 2 isn’t available everywhere… it’s mostly restricted to Europe and India.

If you live in the US or Australia, you’re out of luck.

But if you do live in UK the phone will cost you £399 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. If you want 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage you’ll find the price increases to £469.

And In India, there’s also a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage variant that costs 27,999 rupees.

The OnePlus Nord 2 comes with a lot of improvements over its predecessor and it shines in all departments. It brings insanely fast 65W fast charging and we are also pretty impressed with the camera for the first time on a Nord device. However, we’d have liked to see some upgrades on the display front. Regardless, the Nord 2 is an exciting addition to the mid-range phone market, and it’s one of our new top recommendations.
