OnePlus Nord N30 5G Smartphone

If you are in the market for a budget smartphone from a well-known brand name, then look no further than the new OnePlus Nord N30 5G.

While the OnePlus Nord N30 5G is a feature-rich sub-US$300 device, it is by no means super fast or super powerful (obviously). It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 Chipset, which features an Adreno 619 GPU, and has 8 GB LPDDR4X and 128 GB UFS 2.2 storage – both of which are not the fastest in the house. The same goes for the display. It may be a 6.72” 120 Hz display but it is an LCD, not AMOLED or even OLED, and obviously no LTPO tech.

But the rest of the device is everything anyone can ask for at this price point: a 108 MP Camera System that touts 3x lossless zoom and 9-in-1 pixel binning tech that absorbs more light for brighter, more colorful images, 8GB virtual RAM expansion, support up to 1 TB external storage, dual stereo speakers, 200% Ultra Volume Mode for loud, distortion and buzz-free loud sound without the need for portable speakers, and 5,000 mAh battery paired up with 50W SUPERVOOC Endurance Edition.
