De design of the OnePlus Nord N200 5G isn’t anything we haven’t seen before. Still, this is a fairly attractive one for a budget phone. The back is made of frosted matte glass that doesn’t pick up any fingerprints. The front features a nice 6.5 inch panel. Keep in mind this isn’t an edge-to-edge screen as there is a fairly large chin even for budget phone standards.
The right side features a single power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. But this time, the famed OnePlus ringer switch is missing in action. The other side sees the standard volume rocker. And on the bottom, there is a USB-C port, single firing speaker, and 3.5-millimeter headphone jack. Overall, it looks modern enough to hang with the higher-tier models that OnePlus is offering.
We will be honest. No one expects to see a display this nice at this type of price point. And it is even more emphasized by the inclusion of a beautiful full HD plus 90 Hertz panel. It’s an IPS screen which means the colors are rich with okay blacks and bright whites. And the sharpness is pretty good as well with a pixel density of about 495 pixels per inch. Also, you can switch it from 90 Hertz to 60 Hertz if you want to save battery life.
Speaking of which, the OnePlus Nord N200 5G ships with a 5,000 mAh battery, which lasts well over two days with about eight hours of screen on time. This is nothing short of fantastic for any device. Still, this phone is limited to 18W fast charging and takes roughly 75 minutes to fully charge. Out of line with other offerings? Oh yeah back to it, this is a 2,400 x 1080p display. And it is in fact one of the few phones in this price bracket to feature a high refresh rate panel.
To be clear, in no way, is the OnePlus Nord N200 5G slow or unusable? There just might be certain tasks that aren’t well suited for this device. That said the Nord N200 5G ships of the 4 gigabytes of RAM, 64 GB of onboard storage, which is then expandable to one terabyte by a micro SD card. OnePlus gave the N200 a Qualcomm SM4350 Snapdragon 480 5G processor, which is a newer 5G chip designed for budget devices. It performs respectively in everyday use. One quick thing to note is that software support for the N 200 will be one major Android software update in three years of security updates. It comes running Android 11, with OxygenOS 11 UI.
When it comes to the cameras, the pros start to drop off a bit and the cons start to appear more obvious. The biggest con of OnePlus Nord N200 5G is its rather average camera performance. Now to be clear, for its price in Kenya you’re gonna be hard-pressed to find any budget handset that can produce any decent results. But even still the camera system on the Nord N200 5G is only okay.
The N200 ships with a triple-lens system featuring a 13-megapixel main camera, a 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) lens, and a 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth) depth lens. Outdoors, photos are handled pretty well with good contrast, color, and detail. The 16-megapixel front-facing camera is a whole other story altogether. It can produce some fairly decent results. But in portrait mode, the background blur is a little bit rough.
How much does it actually cost to get a 5G phone? A year ago 5G was limited to only the most premium of flagship phones. But today can be had for a little bit under 20,000 Kenya shillings. If you want a budget 5G handset that has a great display, amazing battery life, and an attractive design then the OnePlus Nord N200 5G might be the phone for you. But if 5G isn’t everything for you, then there are other alternatives for similar prices that offer a little bit more. One of these would be the Nord N10 5G smartphone.
