Reviews for the OnePlus Nord N20 5G

90% OnePlus Nord N20 5G review: Return of the OnePlus X
Source: Android Central English
At just $282, there's no better example of how to cram incredible value into a gorgeous-looking and feeling phone shell. Almost everything about this phone screams excellent, and you'd be hard-pressed to find anything even remotely close to this good at this price. It's hard to imagine it getting any better without being more expensive.

70% Oneplus Nord N20 5G Review: A Better Budget Phone
Source: The Verge English
But the N20 is a better choice if you’re looking for a great screen and a more sophisticated software experience. You’ll also get double the built-in storage and 2GB more RAM than the 64GB / 4GB RAM version of the A32 5G sold in the US. We interact with our phones roughly a million times per day, so it’s worth making sure the device you pick is one that you enjoy using. Personally, I’d find a way to live without an ultrawide camera and pick the N20 over the A32 just based on its enjoyability factor. It’s OnePlus at its finest — delivering an experience that feels like it cost more than it actually did.

80% OnePlus Nord N20 5G Review

The OnePlus Nord N20 offers users a lot of capability for the money. As a daily driver, it has everything most people will need, and its only faults are either fixable or just things that would have made life slightly easier. For your $282 you're getting an AMOLED display, functional camera, and enough firepower to handle everyday tasks with ease. The phone's camera and specifications will only limit serious users who aren't going to be browsing through the mid-range for a new phone anyway. Features like the under-screen thumbprint sensor may give it an edge over competitors like Samsung's Galaxy A series of phones. There are, of course, better phones on the market. But they all cost more. If the current mid-range offerings, which I'd say the N20 is an excellent example of, are anything to go by then smartphone technology has hit a point where you see diminishing returns past the $300 mark. If you need a specific feature the N20 doesn't have, ask yourself if it's worth the additional cash — because if you just want a good smartphone you have one for $282.

60% OnePlus Nord N20 review: You can do better than this
Source: Android Authority English
The OnePlus Nord N20 is a phone with some benefits but more compromises. In general, the hardware has an improved personality thanks to the redesign and it stands out more than some of the vanilla competitors. The screen is solid for this class of device, though we can bemoan the slower 60Hz refresh rate. Battery life is very good, as is the charging speed, as well as the everyday performance of the phone. The Nord N20 lands a bit behind the curve, however, when it comes to the crummy haptics, fingerprint reader, camera performance, and the weak mono speaker. If you really want a OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 8T is still available for just $349 at the time of this writing. It’s far from OnePlus’ greatest phone by some margin, but it’s a massive improvement over the Nord N20 thanks to flagship silicon, a 120Hz refresh rate, better cameras, and 65W charging. If it’s still in stock when you’re reading this, grab it while you can.

70% OnePlus Nord N20 5G review: The best phone under $300
Source: Tom's Guide English
The OnePlus Nord N20 is a beautiful budget phone that looks like it costs hundreds more. It also has an AMOLED display, good battery life, and decent performance for the price. But you also have to accept subpar cameras and a bad software update policy.

OnePlus Nord N20 5G Review: Great Value Never Looked So Good
Source: Hot Hardware English
Yes, OnePlus is changing. But if the OnePlus Nord N20 5G is any indication, the company still has some of its mojo left. This phone’s design is absolutely brilliant, the AMOLED screen is gorgeous, battery life is fantastic, and the software – while slightly different – remains pleasant to use. Oh, and there’s a headphone jack and a 33W charger in the box. Most importantly, here in the US, the N20 5G brings excellent value to the table. Still, there’s room for improvement. The 60Hz refresh rate is a bummer, the lack of ultrawide shooter is a miss, and performance needs some fine tuning. Finally, an alert slider and stereo speakers would have sealed the deal. But if you can live with these limitations, the N20 5G will be available for $282 (or $11.75 per month for 24 months) from T-Mobile starting April 28, and will be coming to OnePlus (unlocked) soon.

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 695 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 660 cores (two fast 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A77 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.7 GHz) and a lower mid range Adreno 619 GPU. Supports only Wi-Fi 5 and is manufactured in the 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


OnePlus:

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Shenzhen OnePlus Science & Technology Co., Ltd. was founded in 2013. The first smartphone was launched in 2014.

It is a subsidiary of BBK Electronic Corporation, a Chinese giant electronic company group, which contains Oppo and Vivo, too. Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus combined had a world market share of more than 10% in the smartphone business in 2016. This exceeded even the Huawei share and resulted in rank 3 behing Samsung and Apple. Furthermore, it was an increase of about 140% compared to 2015. However, OnePlus is the smallest of the three BBK-smartphone manufacturers.

There are not too many reviews on OnePlus smartphones, the ratings are above average (as of 2016).


74%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
