The OnePlus North is already there. After several years with price problems, OnePlus recovers the “North” with a new model which is not called Lite or Z, but OnePlus North, with very good features and a reasonable price: from 399 euros.

It’s been a few years since the last time OnePlus ventured into the 300-400 euro band, in which other manufacturers such as Xiaomi or Realme have become strong. To see how the OnePlus Nord compares to its competitionWe pitted it against the Poco F2 Pro, Realme X50 5G, OPPO Find X2 Lite, Samsung Galaxy A51 5G, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and Huawei P40 Lite 5G.

90 Hz is appreciated

With a starting price of 399 euros for the OnePlus Nord with 8 GB of RAM, the terminal is in the premium mid-range or the prelude to the traditional high-end. While displays with a refresh rate above 60Hz are standard in the high-end range, 90 Hz like OnePlus Nord are always the exception.

The only terminal on our list with a higher refresh rate is the Realme X50 5G, which reaches 120 Hz on your LCD panel. Xiaomi’s POCO F2 Pro refreshes the screen at 60Hz like all the neighbors, but the touch response rate reaches 180Hz: it’s not the same thing, but something is something. The rest of the terminals remain at 60 Hz.

Speaking of screens, the AMOLED panel like the one included in the OnePlus North prevails in the vast majority of the competition, and with a diagonal which in all cases is about 6.5 inches. The only ones that come out of the standard are the Poco F2 Pro and the Huawei P40 Lite 5G, which bet on the LCD screen and are therefore the only ones to integrate the fingerprint reader in the power button instead of under the ‘screen.

5G for all and Snapdragon 865 for one

The OnePlus Nord is a mobile phone with 5G connectivity, something that all of its competition shares, albeit from different sources. The Snapdragon 765G is still the most popular upper midrange 5G processor, and we have it in the Realme X50 5G, the OPPO Find X2 Lite, and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G. Two of them are Samsung with its Exynos 980 on the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G and Huawei with the Kirin 820 5G on the Huawei P40 Lite 5G.

In the processor, Xiaomi goes a bit for free in the Poco F2 Pro, which raises the bar with the Snapdragon 865. It has more raw power, although less RAM than the OnePlus Nord. In fact, the OnePlus Nord stands out for being the only one in its price range to achieve 12 GB of RAM. The base 8GB version is also larger than most alternatives, starting in all cases – with the exception of the OPPO Find X2 Lite – at 6GB of RAM.

On battery, the OnePlus North is in the middle with its capacity of 4,115 mAh and its fast charge of 30 W. It’s not the biggest battery – the honor is taken by the Poco F2 Pro with 4700mAh – nor the fastest – the P40 Lite charges at 40W – but the truth is that almost all terminals have a similar capacity. and a 30W fast charge It has become the new standard of the range.

Four is the magic number

In the photographic field, we note that OnePlus, Realme and OPPO belong to the same matrix, with similar configurations based on a 48-megapixel main sensor, a wide angle of 8 megapixels and a macro and bokeh sensor with a resolution of your choice between 2 and 5 megapixels, depending on the case.

Far from home, the truth is that there aren’t many more differences. Xiaomi and Samsung increase the resolution a bit on the Poco F2 Pro (64 + 13 + 5 + 2 MP) and Galaxy A51 5G (48 + 12 + 5 + 5 MP), but the truth is that there is little surprises and everyone bet on the quad camera in the back.

The OnePlus Nord is the only one to have a dual front camera with a wide angle

Ahead, the story changes. he OnePlus Nord mounts a dual front camera 32 + 8 megapixel, something not present in the competition except in the Realme X50 5G, and in this case it’s a 16 + 2 megapixel camera for portrait mode and not a more versatile wide angle like that of the North.

Those who prefer to have a clear screen without notching or drilling, They have to direct their eyes to the Poco F2 Pro, the only one to have a retractable front camera. In the rest, single or double perforations are imposed, with the exception of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite and the OPPO Find X2 Lite, which have a teardrop-shaped notch.

Comparison of specifications

As always, we leave it to you full comparison table so that you can compare the specifications that seem most relevant to your preferences. The price comparison is complicated because no other model in the range offers a 12 GB version and only one alternative coincides with an 8/128 GB version (the OPPO Find X2 Lite, which costs 70 euros more than the OnePlus).
