The OnePlus Nord N30 5G has been released, offering a good mix of features and performance at a competitive price of $300. This smartphone has received a rating of 4 out of 5 in a recent review by PCMag, which described it as an excellent midrange phone with a fantastic camera, solid real-world performance, and a nice, bright display. The device comes with features usually found in pricier phones, such as rapid charging, a high-resolution camera, and a speedy screen.
The OnePlus Nord N30 5G operates on Android 13 and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 CPU. It measures 6.5 by 3.0 by 0.3 inches and features a sizable 6.72-inch LCD panel with a 2,400-by-1,080-pixel resolution. The screen boasts an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch response rate, which are above average for phones in this price range. However, the battery life is average, with a tested battery life of 11 hours and 18 minutes.
The phone’s rear camera setup includes a main 108MP camera and two supplementary 2MP modules. One is a depth sensor for portraits, while the other is a dedicated macro camera. The 16MP selfie cam on the front offers decent performance. The main 108MP camera captures 12MP photos by default and produces very decent photos in daylight. The phone also has two 108MP modes that can be used to capture sharper images with improved finer details.
The OnePlus Nord N30 5G has a few shortcomings. It has middling battery life and no IP rating. The rear camera setup does not include a usable ultrawide camera, which some users might find disappointing. However, overall, the OnePlus Nord N30 5G is positioned as a strong contender in the $300 smartphone market, providing good value for the price.
Despite these comprehensive reviews, some details such as specific camera comparisons with competing phones, and the performance of the phone in low-light situations, were not available within the time frame. Further research would be needed to provide a more complete picture.
