The OnePlus Nord 2 CE is an ultimate mid-range smartphone with great features and performance. With solid lower- mid-range specs, exceptional software experience, and fast charging capability, the phone is an excellent choice for anyone looking for an affordable and reliable smartphone.

In this review, I will discuss everything about the OnePlus Nord 2 CE. So just sit back and enjoy this in-depth review.

Design: Attractive and Elegant Design

I received this phone in Bahama Blue, one of the gorgeous and unique color options available for the Nord 2 CE. The back panel of the phone is made from high-quality plastic that feels sturdy and gives a solid feel to my hand.

Curved Camera Module:

Ahh! The curved camera module design – with two cameras separated by a vertical flash. This eye-catching look makes the phone stand out from the crowd, and it is one of my favorite features of this phone.

Build:

At just 7.4mm thick and weighing just 175g, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE is slim, light, and feels comfortable in my hand. The device is also splash-proof and has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, making it highly durable and great for everyday use.

Display: 90Hz Fast Refresh Rate

I always want a phone with a fast refresh rate because I hate the feeling of lag when scrolling through menus or swiping between apps.

The Nord 2 CE has an AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, making everything look and run smooth and fast. The HDR10+ support also provides stunning visuals for watching videos and playing games on this device.

Performance: Powerful and Responsive

With its powerful and efficient MediaTek MT6877 Dimensity 900 chipset, the OnePlus Nord 2 CE offers superior performance and blazing-fast speeds. The octa-core CPU clocked at 2.4 GHz combined with 6GB or 8GB of RAM provides excellent multitasking capability, letting me run multiple heavy apps and games simultaneously.

Gaming Experience:

My gaming experience with the Nord 2 CE has been nothing short of amazing. I run modern 3D games like PUBG Mobile at high graphics settings and decent fps, with no lag or dropped frames.

Battery: Long-Lasting and Faster Charging

The Nord 2 CE packs a whopping 4500 mAh battery that can easily last for two days with moderate usage. And if you need to top up your phone on the go, you'll love the Warp Charge feature, which charges the device in just over an hour and provides sufficient power for a night out.

65W Charging:

The charging capacity of this phone is impressive and even better than some flagships on the market. Warp Charge 65W can refill the phone's battery to 50% in just 20 minutes!

Camera: I Just Love it!

The phone's triple camera setup offers excellent photography capabilities. The main 64 MP sensor has superb low-light performance with high-quality photos, while the ultra-wide angle and macro lenses add more versatility to my photography.

Front Camera:

I look nice, but I still need a good front camera for all my selfies. Luckily, the Nord 2 CE has a 16 MP selfie camera that captures sharp and clear photos every time and enhances my beauty so that I can impress my followers on social media.

Network: Super Fast 5G

With 5G connectivity, I can stream videos and download files at lightning-fast speeds. The Nord 2 CE also supports dual SIM capability, so I don't have to carry two phones while traveling abroad.

FAST FACTS

Best For:
Heavy Gaming and Multitasking

Battery:

Final Verdict
