OnePlus has a reputation for making premium devices for a cheaper price (add OnePlus N200 5G to this list), and most of its products have been successful over the years. On 21, June 2021 OnePlus announced its new mobile device Nord N200 5G, which was released on 25th June 2021. Unlike its flagship devices, this is a budget-friendly phone that costs only 240 USD. OnePlus Nord N200 5G is currently the cheapest 5th Generation smartphone in the USA.
In the box, you’ll get an 18-watt charger, (which is significantly lower than the previous models) and some paperwork(warranty, manual, etc…)
Let’s Look At OnePlus N200 5G Specifications:
- GSM / CDMA / HSPA / LTE / 5G technology,
- 189 g weight,
- Android 11 and OxygenOS 11 OS,
- With Octa-core (2×2.0 GHz Kryo 460 & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 460) CPU, Adreno 619 GPU,
- Memory with 64 GB 4 GB RAM,
- 16-megapixel triple camera and video with [email protected],
- Sensors with Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, gyro-EIS
- Battery with Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable with fast charging 18w.
- Comes with Blue Quantum
For its price, the phone looks quite expensive, but OnePlus had to make quite a few compromises to cut the price to 240 dollars. So you won’t be getting a lot in terms of hardware. As far as multitasking goes you only get 4 gigabytes of RAM, when it comes to mobile phones with a RAM lesser than 6 GB they tend to function slowly when you install more than 5 or 6 apps.
The primary camera consists of a 13-megapixel major sensor and goes along with a 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel monochrome lens for better artificial bokeh effects, but it is not up to the mark. Taking too many portrait pictures continuously is causing the n200 to dangle, and this is because of the CPU.
OnePlus is confident that Nord’s battery life is long-lasting and that’s true, Nord N200’s 5000 milliamp battery takes up to 18 hours to drain the battery that’s about 5 hours longer than the Pixel 4a, and the iPhone SE it also beat the Samsung Galaxy s21.
Finally, We can say that the phone is a little sluggish when compared to its flagship models, but you get what you pay for and 5G if you really care about 5G.
