On this episode of Orbital, we begin by talking about OnePlus' switch from a premium brand to becoming one that offers mid-range phones too. The OnePlus Nord episode of the podcast was hosted by Pranay Parab with deputy reviews editor Roydon Cerejo joining in to share his thoughts on the smartphone. We begin by talking about OnePlus Nord price in India and how it impacted our OnePlus Nord review. We talk about the base variant of the Nord which is launching later in India, and then mention whether the higher variants make more sense to buy.
Next we begin talking about the build and design of this device and whether OnePlus has cut any corners here. The display is an area of interest for many of you and we do our best to highlight the pros and cons of that. We then talk about the Snapdragon 765G SoC and how it performs in various stress tests including heavy gaming. Is India ready for a 5G chip or is it still too early to call this a plus point? We discuss that too.
Next we discuss the software and battery life of this device, since that is something that OnePlus is known for. Finally, we talk about the camera performance of this smartphone, which has three rear cameras and two front cameras. This has been a bit of a sore spot for OnePlus smartphones over the years and has the company fixed it with the Nord? Listen to this episode to find out.
