Editor Rating

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is a much-awaited upgrade to the original Nord CE, which gets a big upgrade in terms of both performance and design. The phone features a slim and sleek body, with a squarish camera bump that rises above the back panel and is connected to it via a gentle slope that makes it easier to hold. You get a new dual camera array in the back, which features larger, better-resolution sensors that are supported by AI algorithms designed to enhance the image and video quality. While the battery backup is pretty average, considering it is a 4500mAh battery, you still get super fast charge times, thanks to 65W wired charging support.


Bottom Line

OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G is a much-awaited upgrade to the Oneplus Nord CE, which features a completely new design, a better processor, and many improvements in software optimization and image enhancements. You do still miss out on wireless charging, but the fast charging speeds make it worth the loss.
