Editor Rating

The OnePlus Nord CE Lite 5G is probably the most affordable 5G smartphone on the market, which also features a super responsive 120Hz IPS display. The processor has been switched to a reliable Snapdragon 695, which is paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Thankfully, you can still use a microSDXC card for expansion by sacrificing one of the SIM cards, so storage should not be an issue. You also get a triple camera array, although the 64MP main camera is the only usable thing in that package.


Bottom Line

OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is an even more affordable avatar of the popular Nord CE 2 smartphone, which still manages to retain a lot of the design cues while still featuring a completely new design. There are some compromises on the camera front, as well as the usual lack of wireless charging, but that is to be expected at this price point.
