If we Talk about the Body and design in the first impression, it’s WOW. The Whole back is Made with Glas and comes with gorilla glass 5. Same with Front display as well both front and back have gorilla glass 5. And all other Remaining Body is made with Plastic.
Now Let’s talk about design. It has a glossy back and has a similar camera module design as Oppo find. Most of the Phones comes with the same camera setups Nowadays. Overall, it’s a good design. You feel the premium-ness when you hold the Phone. Overall I will rate 4.5 out of 5 For design and Body.

3. AI Color Enhancement
It’s is the first time I have Not seen the Best Display from One Plus. Like It has an Average display Quality when you compare it with the other Phones in this Price range, Brightness is not top-notch. Not much feels as AMOLED. Still Colours and viewing angle of this display is very good.
The Display is AMOLED but not that catchy, which always attracts you, but it also provides top Features like Ambient Display and Dark Mode. Overall I will rate 3.5 Out of 5 for Display.
3. Processor & Memory
|Processor||MediaTek Dimensity 900|
|GPU||ARM Mali-G68 MC4|
OnePlus Nord CE2 is equipped with the more powerful MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC. I am, however, more interested in the fact that the Nord CE supports eight 5G bands in India instead of just one with the Nord CE. This processor is powerful enough to handle gaming and high-performance computing activities such as video editing.
The phone features 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage and has a RAM option of 6 or 8 GB. You can choose the ram options according to your Budget and Usage. You can choose the ram options according to your Budget and Usage. There are Ram Boost options, which are common in every phone nowadays. It converts internal storage into virtual Ram. Overall I will give 4.5 out of 5.
|Simcard Support [ Band ]||5G|
|Other Features||1. NFC enabled|
2. WiFi Calling
3. Dual 4G VoLTE
OnePlus Nord CE2 supports 5G Connectivity and has more bands than One Plus Nord CE. It Supports Wifi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. Because of wifi 6 and android 11, it supports wifi calling and has NFC Enabled, and yes, it also supports Dual 4g VoLTE. Overall good numbers. I will give 5 out of 5.
5. Ports and sensors

|Face Unlock||Front Camera|
|Microphone||2 – Microphone [Top & Bottom]|
|Audio Jack||Yes – 3.5 mm Audio Jack|
|Charging Point||Type – C|
|Sim Slots||3 – Slots [ 2 Nano Sim & Micro SD ]|
This Phone Comes with triple sim tray slots. We can use 2 Nano sims and 1 Micro-Sd Card to extend the Storage. And also, This Phone has a 3.5 mm, Audio Jack. Which makes multimedia better.
The in-display fingerprint reader is pretty fast and accurate, and also Face Unlock is also very Accurate. One major thing which is missing in this phone is alert Slider. So Overall I will give 4 out of 5.
|Main Camera||Sensor: OmniVision|
Pexels: 64 MP
|Ultra-Wide Camera – Rear||Megapixels: 8 MP|
Field of View: 119°
|Macro Lens – Rear||Megapixels: 2 MP|

1080p video at 30/60 fps
|Front Camera||Sensor: Sony IMX471|
|VIdeo with Front Camera||1080p video at 30 fps or 60 fps|
The camera Module is Big and looks different from Previous One Plus Phones. It comes with 64 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP setup and has 16 MP Front Camera. The rear Camera is not from Sony or a Samsung but OmniVision. And it shows the Primary Camera captures average Photos. Whether it comes to Clarity, Dynamic Range, Skintones, or Colors, there are much better camera smartphones available in this 25000₹ Price range.
If we move to a selfie camera, it comes with a 16 MP Selfie camera from sony. It is also not as good as other Provides in this Price Range. Overall Camera is not a highlight of this Phone, so I will give it 3 out of 5.
7. Battery & Sound
|Battery||4,500mAh ( dual-cell 2,250mAh batteries )|
|Speaker||Single Loud Speaker|
It has an average sound quality. If you look at other phones in this price range, you will get dual speakers. I like the battery. It has a 65 Watt Supervooc charger, which is vast. OnePlus say one charge will give you a whole day’s use. Overall I will give 4 out of 5.
8.Os and Security
|Operating System||Oxygen OS 11.3|
|UI & Apps||clean Ui no bloatware|
|Security Patches||January [New Update Will Get Soon]|
This Phone Runs on an android 11 and will get the android 12 Soon. It comes with Oneplus’s official Oxygen OS 11.3, and yes, it has a clean UI and no bloatware, which is something for what one plus is known.
Now if we go towards security then it has a January Security Patch update and the company said that a new update will come soon. Overall I will give 4.5 out of 5.
|BGMI||Ultra and HDR settings|
|COD||high and Very High settings|
The dimensity 900 & 920 gives a sustained performance in gaming. You can play BGMI in Ultra and HDR settings and COD in Very High Settings which is Good. There is no heat problem found while playing games. Overall Good gaming Experience you will get on this Phone so I will give it 4.5 out of 5.

Pros & Cons
- Amazing Design
- Clean UI No bloatware
- Good Camera
- Good Battery with 65 Watt Charger
- Better Phones available in this Price than Nord CE 2
- No Stereo Speaker
- Night Photography is Average
- Comes With Android 11
- OnePlus Lovers
- Have a lot of money to spend
I think OnePlus is best known for their best and Quality Midrange Phones. Now they are changing their Focus from that and they try to compete with MI and Realme.
Regarding this phone, there are some positive and negative points but if you ask me that should you buy this Phone? – I’ll respond right away No. Because if you will see other phones in this price range comes with lot’s of good configuration than this. But in the end, it’s Your Choice to buy this Phone or not.
I don’t want to confuse you but if you are not brand conscious and you have a budget of around 25,000 ₹ then you can go with realme 9 pro-Plus or if you have around 30,000 budget you can consider Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge. That’s it.
I hope this post helps you to make your decision and All of your questions were answered.
