We’re not going to hide, at JV we really like OnePlus smartphones. And this since the release of the very first model in 2014, more than seven years ago. This brand, then out of nowhere, would revolutionize our vision of smartphones by going against Apple and other Samsung by offering a laptop at the best price, with a ridiculously low margin. This is how the first “Flagship Killer” was born, a name that everyone now takes for themselves.
But by dint of hearing that they were the most beautiful and the strongest, OnePlus got lost a bit and ended up falling into line by releasing increasingly expensive premium smartphones and abandoning what had their strength, the best laptop possible at the lowest price. A breach in which Huawei and then Xiaomi were subsequently engulfed.
Released in summer 2024 at 499 €, the OnePlus Nord in 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory version is only 349.99 € at Amazon before Christmas.
When we talk about a OnePlus smartphone, the same things always emerge, incredible super fluid screen, OxygenOS overlay among the best on the market, incredible performance but behind the photo. Well you know what? This is exactly what characterizes the OnePlus Nord.
Here, this OnePlus North, offered in its magnificent turquoise version, or “Blue Marble” as it is officially called at OnePlus, embeds a incredible 6.44 inch Super Amoled display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The processor, one of the best of 2024, the Snapdragon 765G is supported by 12 GB RAM and 256 GB of memory. Her 4115 mAH battery coupled with a software optimization onion will allow it to last more than a day without any problem.
On the photo side, the OnePlus North has even allowed itself to borrow the main 48 Mpx sensor from its big brother the OnePlus 8. It is accompanied by 3 additional devices, an 8 Mpx ultra wide-angle, a depth sensor of 5 Mpx and a 2 Mpx macro. Finally, something rather rare, we have the right to two selfie cameras, a main one of 32 Mpx and an ultra wide-angle of 8 Mpx.
Finally, let’s not forget to mention the presence of the famous “Alert Slider”, this small button which allows a simple gesture to switch to vibrating or silent mode that we would dream of seeing on all other Android smartphones because it is so practical.
The OnePlus Nord in summary :
Offered at its release for the 12 GB + 256 GB version at 499 €, you can find the OnePlus Nord at only 349 € at Amazon and delivery is still possible before Christmas.
