OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G product details

According to OnePlus, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is a phone where you get more than you expect. What they mean by that we don't know but what we do know is what kind of phone the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is. What it can do, what it can't and whether the price they are asking is justified. You can read it here.

Too good to be true?

Suppose you are looking for a new mobile. One with a large and smooth screen, a large battery, with a good camera system and if you can also plug your own wired headphones into it then that's absolutely great. Then the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G from OnePlus is quite a good candidate. Especially considering its price because it's not expensive. And then thanks to its 5G support, it's also future-proof. That sounds almost too good to be true.

The necessary cost savings

We thought so too, which is why we looked into why the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is so inexpensive. First of all, it's because of the processor choice. This is the 2021 midrange Snapdragon 695 processor that we see more often in budget phones. In itself, there is little wrong with this chipset but OnePlus is asking quite a lot of it. For example, it has to continuously provide the 120Hz screen with new images, which sometimes causes some hiccups. In doing so, it partly undoes the high refresh rate. Costs have also been saved on materials. For example, the back is plastic, although that is not necessarily a disadvantage. Plastic does not break as easily as glass, nor does it feel cold like metal.

Three-way 64MP AI camera system

Housed on the back of the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is a triple camera system. The main camera features a 64MP sensor with more than neat f/1.7 lens. The AI functions ensure automatic selection of the right settings resulting in better photos. Furthermore, you will find the usual macro and depth camera. Something we see more often in this price category. The limited resolution of 2 MP ensures that they add little in practice. Fortunately, the main camera does produce good results that largely compensate for that disadvantage.
