 Our Verdict

Overall, we like the OnePlus Nord N30 5G. It is an outstanding device that ticks most boxes for a user in 2023 keen on technological advancement, the latest OS, 5G connectivity, long-lasting battery, robust performance based on a superior Chipset, unlimited memory space and lasting battery to minimize disruption and recharging frequencies. However, for the price, OnePlus could have done better with a better screen type, such as AMOLED, for better user experience. The fact that the 108MP main camera does not capture 4K videos is also a pity, considering the potential of the smartphone. On average, we give the N30 a 7/10.
