OnePlus Nord review: Everything you’d want from a 5G phone

With 5G, a solid lineup of specs and a beautiful, vibrant design, the OnePlus Nord offers a hell of a lot for a reasonable price. At under 500 euros (about $570, £450 or AU$820), it’s significantly cheaper than its $999 flagship sibling, the OnePlus 8 Pro.

This phone packs a potent octacore processor, a vibrant 6.44-inch display, an in-display fingerprint scanner and 5G connectivity for ultrafast data speeds. All of that’s wrapped up in a great-looking blue body that feels anything but cheap. Add to that three rear cameras that take decent shots and two selfie cameras, and the Nord is as well-stacked as any of today’s elite handsets.
