Now I have had a OnePlus Nord N10 5G for a couple of weeks and thought in this test to share with me how I experienced this model from OnePlus. Read on to find out just that!
If we start with the design, it fits really well in the hand. What I especially like is that it is very thin and that it is not as slippery to handle as the company’s flagship OnePlus 8 Pro, for example. What is not as good is that the back of the unit attracts a lot of fingerprints as it has a shiny black surface which also means that the fingerprints are clearly visible.
The screen in the device is really lovely. That’s when it got a 6.5 inch screen with Full HD + resolution. It is like any middle class, but what really makes Nord stand out among the amount of smartphones is that it has a 90Hz screen, which is a bit unique for a middle class smartphone sold in Sweden right now. I really love the display in the device and things like viewing angles are also very good, especially considering the price of the device.
The company has continued its collaboration with Qualcomm and in the North N10 is the processor Snapdragon 690. The mobile’s flow is experienced well and unlike many competitors, I do not experience any lag at all. I suspect this is because OnePlus has adapted the software to the Nord N10! In addition, the model supports 5G, which is also very good! In addition, the phone remembers different apps well as it has 6 GB of RAM as standard.
The phone has got a primary 64 MP camera, which may sound big on paper but it can be something completely different in reality, megapixels are really not everything. In addition, the model has an 8 MP camera for taking wide angle pictures, a 2 MP for depth and another 2 MP for taking close-ups. To be honest, I think that OnePlus could have skipped the latter two cameras because these do not take good pictures. On the other hand, I think the primary camera is impressive and it is also good that OnePlus has invested in the wide angle, which also takes good pictures!
Another highlight with this model is its large battery that not only impresses on paper but also in reality. I get two days of use of the model without any problems. Something that is also unusual for an intermediate class is that it supports 30W fast charging, which is always appreciated!
The model has also got a fingerprint reader on the back, something I see as an advantage as this is really fast and as it looks today it is almost like I prefer a visible fingerprint reader before one that sits under the display.
