OnePlus has long since passed its prime from being the “flagship killer” in the Android space. It slowly shifted from offering value-for-money smartphones to full-on flagships with secondary mid-range iterations. OnePlus launched the OnePlus 12 on December 11, 2023, making it the last big release of 2023. But with all that it has under the belt, OnePlus is aiming for the fastest Android experience in 2024. Key Specifications of OnePlus 12 Design and Build Quality: Same Old Design with a Dash of Character By all means, the OnePlus 12 looks exactly the same as its predecessor, the OnePlus 11. The merging round camera housing and all sides curved front reminisce the somewhat iconic design introduced with the OnePlus 10. The front glass features Gorilla Glass Victus 2 with the rear featuring standard Gorilla Glass. The back now has a marble-like finish with a glossy inlay on the camera housing. The device comes in at 164.3 mm by 75.8 mm by 9.2 mm and has a hefty weight of 220g. Ports and buttons are all standard as usual. The power button, volume rockers, sim slot, and alert slider are all placed in their desired position. The phone comes with IP65 water and dustproofing rather than the standard IP68 seen on most flagship smartphones. In a sense, the design of the OnePlus 12 adds a minor refinement over their proven strategy.

And it seems like OnePlus has decided to completely overhaul the display tech with the OnePlus 12. The 6.82-inch LTPO AMOLED ProXDR panel comes with 1B colors, 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ support. OnePlus has used a diamond pixel layout compared to the traditional square layout. It has a 1440 by 3168 pixels resolution with 510 ppi density and a 19.8:9 aspect ratio. The all-around curve gives the panel about 90.8% screen-to-body ratio. The display also supports 100% Display P3 and 10-bit color depth. What’s interesting here is the brightness of the panel. The typical brightness holds at 600 nits and up to 1600 nits at HBM. But the panel can crank up to 4500 nits in peak mode. That’s more than any smartphone out there in the market by a long mile. And its something that won’t be exercised even in the harshest sunlight. On the flip side, the panel supports 2160 Hz PWM dimming for ultra-low brightness for nighttime use. All things considered, the display is definitely a highlight for the OnePlus 12. Read more: vivo X100 Pro Review: A New Standard for Camera The Camera: Same Old OnePlus The camera has consistently been a point of contention with OnePlus smartphones. And unfortunately, things haven’t really changed much. There’s a triple camera setup on the OnePlus 12 with the main camera being an updated 50 MP sensor. It has an f/1.6 aperture and a 23mm wide-angle opening. The additional sensors are a 64 MP, f/2.6, 70mm periscope lens with up to 3x zoom and a 48 MP, f/2.2, 14mm, 114˚ ultrawide shooter. The front camera is a 32 MP, f/2.4, 21mm wide-angle shooter. All the sensors are stacked with features like multidirectional PDAF, OIS, and gyro-EIS. OnePlus has been partnering with Hasselblad for a customized color calibration. The pictures on the OnePlus 12 can be best described as slightly better than that of the 11 with somewhat similar flaws. Images have slight exposure issues with an average dynamic range. The camera is also post-processing heavy to the point that what you see on the screen grossly differs from what’s processed after the shutter click. The videography of the rear cameras stay the same at 8K@24fps, 4K@30/60fps, 1080p@30/60/240/480fps. The selfie shooter can capture a maximum of 4K footage at 30fps. However, the exposure issue and low light videography leaves much to be desired from the Oneplus 12. Read more: Google Pixel 8 Pro Review: Is this the best Android phone of 2023?
Back in the day, Carl Pei challenged the status quo of flagship smartphones with his revolutionary OnePlus One. Fast forward 9 years and Carl has moved on from OnePlus and founded Nothing, no pun intended. With Nothing too, Carl wanted to disrupt the existing smartphone ideas. To that end, the company just announced the Nothing Phone 2, a successor to their Nothing Phone 1 released last year. So how is it as a device? What new features does it bring? Or is it just “nothing”? Let’s find out. Key Specifications of Nothing Phone 2 Design and Build Quality Those who are familiar with the Nothing Phone 1 would feel comfortable with the Phone 2. For a brand that brought a completely fresh design element with the Nothing Phone 1 has remarkably stayed true to the original design language. Experts claim that this could be due to brand establishment needs. Nothing is a completely new player in the smartphone industry. So going for a drastically different design in just the second iteration would negate the brand establishment prospects. Read more: Oppo Reno10 Pro+ 5G: Premium mid-ranger on the go Regardless, there are a few new things on the Phone 2. The most striking change is in the colour. The black variant of the Phone 1 has been replaced with a light grey colour which pops the clear back design more prominently. The clear back design has also been subtly tweaked to give a more polished and minimal look. Dimension-wise, the Phone 2 is a tad bigger and heavier at 162.1mm by 76.4mm by 8.6mm and 201.2 gm respectively. The front and back of the device are glass with Corning Gorilla Glass protection with an aluminium frame in between. The front camera has been moved from the side to the centre now. The uniform front bezel has also been reduced a bit to allow for an 87.2% screen-to-body ratio. It's not the best in the market, but the uniform distribution makes it look much slicker than most other smartphones at this price point. The usual ports and buttons are all in the same place as Phone 1 with no headphone or card slot, unfortunately. Read more: Samsung Galaxy A54 vs realme 11 Pro+: Who wins the battle? Nothing has also upgraded the dust and water resistance from IP53 to IP54. Overall, the design element of the Phone 2 has slightly changed from the Phone 1. This has split the opinion of many. But as a brand, the choice of Nothing to stay with a similar design will only help to solidify their brand. The Glyph Interface The glyph interface has been one of the highlights of Phone 1. Simply because no phone before has incorporated such design elements. You can read more about the glyph interface in our original Phone 1 review. Not much has changed since then except for a few additional tweaks here and there. The two most noticeable changes are in the red LED indicator and the centre strip. The video recording indicator has now been stretched to the edge instead of being a blinking dot. The centre strip has also been broken down into six separate pieces. Read more: Infinix Note 30 Pro 5G Review: Powerful camera at an affordable price Nothing has brought some new functionalities to the glyph interface. The glyph on the top left will work as a priority notification indicator. It can also work as an indicator for car or food delivery ETA (available for Uber and Zomato on an experimental basis). Users can now compose their own notification sound complete with glyph animations which is like another gimmick. In essence, barring a few useful additions, the glyph interface still remains a novelty trinket to have on a smartphone. The Display The display on the Phone 2 is a 6.7 inches LTPO OLED display with an 1080 by 2412 Pixels of resolution, 1 B colours, HDR10+ support, and a bumped-up 120 Hz refresh rate. The display has a 394 ppi density because of the uniform panel alignment. It was expected that the Phone 1 would feature a higher resolution panel but that didn’t turn out to be the case. Read more: Walton NEXG N70 Review: Unlocking the Budget-Friendly Phone Regardless, the FHD+ panel still looks excellent as ever with 1600 nits HBM and a higher refresh rate. The uniform flat display alleviates the overall design aesthetic of the Phone 2. It almost feels like using an iPhone with Android OS. The panel has excellent viewing angles and good color calibration. Overall, the display is easily one of the key strong points of the Phone 2.
OnePlus Technology, the subsidiary of OPPO, has steadily expanded to include midrange and budget devices in its product line. The Nord CE series were the perfect mid-range with the Lite being their budget offering. This year, the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G was released on April 11 2023 in China with a subsequent global release. The CE 3 Lite successes the CE 2 Lite with some interesting developments. Let’s have a look. Key Features of OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite Design and Build Quality The OnePlus Nord CE 3 is a through-and-through budget device. The build material may reflect on that but rest assured, the CE 3 Lite is a well-built hefty device at 195 gm. The phone has a glass front, plastic frame, and back with a glossy finish to emulate the glass-back design. The front glass is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. The Nord CE 3 Lite moves away from the design elements of its predecessor, the CE 2 Lite. Instead of dual tone back with a separate camera housing, users will be getting a flush glossy back with two protruding camera sensors, much like the iPhone 12. Read more: Redmi Note 12 Turbo Harry Potter Edition: Enter the Magical Wizarding World However, the quirk is somewhere else. Users would be surprised to see that even though there are two camera cutouts on the back, the official spec sheet mentions triple camera setup. That is because one of the camera cutouts, specifically the bottom one, houses two camera sensors. It’s a unique design choice that helps to keep things minimal at the back. Coming to ports and buttons, the volume rocker and the sim tray are situated on the left of the device with the power button being on the right. The power button also doubles as the fingerprint scanner on the Nord CE 3 Lite. Being a budget device, the headphone jack is also present on the CE 3 Lite, right beside the Type C charging port. A single-firing speaker also finds its place at the bottom. The top of the device is flush with just the secondary noise cancellation mic for better call clarity. Read More: Best MacBooks in Bangladesh: Which Apple Laptop Should You Buy? Overall, the design is a slight move towards minimalism from the CE 2 Lite. Whether that is a good thing or bad remains subjective. Display The display on the Nord CE 3 Lite is an IPS LCD one. The choice of LCD panel is understandable given the budget it comes at. However, the lack of an AMOLED panel is somewhat made up by the 120 Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. The panel boasts around 550 nits of typical brightness with 680 nits of HBM. Though these aren’t industry-leading stats in any way, it's still decent for its price. Speaking of quality, the panel is exactly as you’d expect LCDs to be. The blacks aren’t deep black and there are some color shifts in extreme angles. Other than that, the smooth scrolling and accurate color recreation make for a compelling and interactive experience. Read More: May 2023 New Releases: Top 7 Upcoming Smartphones Camera The Nord CE 3 Lite features three cameras on the back. The main camera is a whooping 108 MP one with the complementing two sensors being a 2 MP macro and depth sensor. It’s clear that the 108 MP sensor is the key player here as it will be doing all the heavy lifting.
OnePlus is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer renowned for its flagship devices that offer flagship-level specs at an affordable price. Their latest offering, the OnePlus 11 was released in China on January 4, 2023. It is going to be launched on February 7 in the global market. Let’s see the specs, and price of the OnePlus 11. Key Features of OnePlus 11 Design and Display For its newest flagship phone, OnePlus has taken a different approach to the design. This time, the phone has a circular camera block in the top left corner, giving it a fresh, modern look. The front of the device resembles the OnePlus 10 Pro with a left-corner punch-hole camera and curved display edges. Compared to the OnePlus 10T, which had a flat display and centered punch-hole, the OnePlus 11 has a sleeker and more modern design. Published images from OnePlus, as well as unofficial renders from OnLeaks confirm this new design. The official photos indicate that the phone will come in two different colors: green and black. This is sure to be a great addition to the OnePlus lineup! Read More: realme 10 Pro Plus: Massive Return of the Classic The OnePlus 11 has a unique design that is said to be inspired by black holes. It has a circular stainless steel camera module and a glass back in either black or green, as well as a metal frame with a punch-hole camera on the screen. Measuring 163.1mm x 74.1mm x 8.53mm and weighing 205g, the OnePlus 11 sports a 6.7-inch, 120Hz 1440 x 3216 fluid AMOLED display with 525 pixels per inch and a 20.1:9 aspect ratio. This display is similar to the one its predecessor had. Not to mention, the phone is equipped with the company’s signature alert slider. This display has adjustable refresh rate capabilities, ranging between 1Hz to 120Hz. This is especially useful when using the always-on display feature, which does not require a high refresh rate. It is also protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, making it incredibly resilient. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus Review: Camera King with 200 MP Cameras OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 11 will feature Hasselblad-tuned cameras, with four sensors in total. On the rear, there is a 50MP main camera, a 48MP ultrawide lens, and a 32MP 2x telephoto lens. The front camera is a 16MP selfie snapper. Three out of four of the sensors are the same as what we saw on the OnePlus 10 Pro, but OnePlus 11 have been upgraded to the newest Sony models. The telephoto lens, or portrait lens as OnePlus calls it, is a totally new addition. It is unfortunate that the new zoom camera has dropped its zoom level from 3.3x to 2x. Nevertheless, its 32MP resolution should deliver a much higher quality image. Unlike the OnePlus 10 Pro, there is no indication of a fourth miscellaneous rear camera, which is a relief considering that these sensors failed to capture our attention on earlier OnePlus models. Read More: Vivo Y16 Review: Redefining The Essentials with a New Design The OnePlus 8 Pro had a photochromic mode camera that allowed users to take photos with an unusual filter, while the OnePlus 9 Pro included a specific monochrome camera to capture black-and-white shots. Now you can capture your most stunning moments with the incredible video and photo resolution capabilities of this device. The rear camera can record videos in up to 8K resolution at 24 frames per second or in up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Additionally, the selfie camera features 16 megapixels and a maximum aperture of f/2.4. Hardware and Performance The highly anticipated OnePlus 11 is set to be a powerhouse, equipped with the 2nd generation Snapdragon 8 chipset that provides an impressive 35% CPU performance boost and a 25% GPU boost.

In addition, OnePlus has pledged to support this device for a long time, as they have declared to provide four major Android updates and five years of security patches for “select devices launched in 2023 and beyond”. Although the OnePlus 11 has yet to be officially named, it is likely to be one of the devices eligible for the abovementioned support.

The OnePlus Nord series is known for its flagship-level specifications and sleek design. It features a unique design and differentiation from the other devices in the market. The phones are made with a focus on gaming, photography, and audio. While the series was first introduced in 2020, the company continues to add new phones to the series. Now they are releasing a new phone, the OnePlus Nord 2T, in its lineup. The phone was released on July 5 in India. Let's see the details of the Nord 2T and what we can expect from it. Key Features of OnePlus Nord 2T Design The Nord 2 T's design is very similar to its predecessor Nord 2 5G. From the front, it is nearly impossible to tell the two telephones apart as the sides have the same glossy polycarbonate frame. However, you will see the difference on the back as Nord 2T has a larger camera with a big circular element. But the cameras are in the same place as the Nord 2. Nevertheless, the placement of the flash and ambient light sensor is different from Nord 2. The back of the phone contains the same Corning Gorilla Glass 5 as the front part. But the texture is smoother, which makes the phone slippery. Read Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Is it a value for money flagship? The phone comes with Jade Fog finish with a glossy back, which features a better grip. However, the Nord 2T is smaller in size compared to flagship phones. On the sides, the phone features a power button on the right and a volume rocker on the left. Buttons are located high on each side so that you can adjust your grip easily. Display Nord 2T comes with a 6.43-inch screen which features a 2400x1800 resolution AMOLED display. The display also supports a 90Hz refresh rate. Besides, it will also provide HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG. Although OnePlus mentioned Display P3 support and sRGB, it doesn't offer any color management support. But you will be able to switch manually using the screen color mode setting. In this way, you can also change the color temperature. While the display brightness is good for indoor use, the outdoor performance might be satisfactory for some users. However, the display has an excellent viewing angle. Read Samsung Galaxy A04s: The coming soon budget killer phone While most of the phones in 2022 offer a 120Hz refresh rate, Nord 2T comes with a 60Hz and 90Hz refresh rate. This may seem outdated to some users. The good thing about the 2T display is that it offers a built-in optical fingerprint sensor. Camera Despite the lack of premium camera features, the OnePlus 2T model does not come with a poor-quality camera setup. It has a triple camera setup at the base that includes a 50-megapixel main, an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor for black and white photographs. Read Infinix Note 12 G96 Review: A Budget Phone With Top-Notch Features The 50MP main camera includes optical image stabilization. It may perform less low light, but it manages to produce sharp and clear pictures. The pictures are clear and powerful, seeming under daylight, but there's a lot of graininess when the light decreases. The autofocus might not be great, but it does not affect the picture. Further, the 8MP ultrawide sensor takes the finest photos, taking into account the amount of light and the depth of the subject you are photographing. In light conditions, the 2MP lens takes average photos. The front-facing 32 MP selfie camera produces images that accurately depict natural skin tones. However, the subject and other details are secondary, but the colors are true. The selfie camera comes with a low noise feature while the videos remain crisp and smooth, with even less flicker and dimming. Read Walton Primo R9 Review: Competitive in entry-level budget segment You can record 4K videos at 3fps or 1080p at 60fps with OnePlus Nord 2T. Software and Performance OnePlus Nord 2T uses the MediaTek Dimensity 1300 chipset. It doesn't seem to provide much improvement over Dimensity 1200 SoC as the processor cores and their clock frequencies remained identical. MediaTek swapped the Density 1200 SoC with HyperEngine 5 for superior gaming performance. OnePlus has incorporated a Dimensity 1300 SoC chip with 12 gigabytes of LPDDR4X memory. It also offers 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. OnePlus One 2T uses Android 12 with Oxygen OS 12.1 as its operating system. This is an optimized version that runs smoothly and eliminates any unnecessary complications that may be present in other OS versions. The OS has a private safe for storing sensitive data and features comprehensive customization options. You can customize the software, so you are never left wanting to do more. Read Tecno Camon 19 Neo Review: Know its advantages, disadvantages Oxygen OS 12.1 is a well-known choice for various phones, having previously been used on the OnePlus 10 Pro, Nord CE 2 Lite, and 10R. ColorOS 12 with an alternate design and should be encountered by anyone who has come from Oppo or realme. Battery and Charging The Nord 2T 5G has a dual-cell 4500mAh battery even in the newest generation, with 80W charging speeds, an improvement of 65W. With the fast-charging capability, the Nord 2T 5G can draw the batteries back to full capacity in approximately 38 minutes and 98% in just 30 minutes. These numbers are more or less comparable to the ones using the 65W charger on the Nord 2T 5G. Read Vivo Y01 Review: Is it a worthy entry level budget phone?

The official price of OnePlus Nord 2T in Bangladesh may vary depending on tax and other issues. The phone is not officially available in Bangladesh yet. Final Words OnePlus Nord 2T is an outstanding new edition to the OnePlus Nord 2 phone. It may not have a flashy design, but it does have its own pros. The phone has a fast processor, an outstanding display, speedy charging, and a layout that may make you nostalgic. The OnePlus Nord 2T mobile phone is rated IP52 and 5G ready, and it also has a tidy UI. The camera setup is not uniform, and the refresh is not quick, but these specs are negligible. On the whole, OnePlus Nord 2T is a great choice if you are looking for an inexpensive phone capable of 5G connectivity. Read Xiaomi Redmi Note 11: Customized Variant Exclusively in Bangladesh
In 2022, OnePlus’s latest phone lineup seems to be improvising all the time. The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is the latest in a long series of cheap phones that keep the low prices that OnePlus pioneered so many years ago. However, the Lite version of CE 2 lacks flagship-level features. The phone was officially released on 28th April 2022 in India and now available in Bangladesh. On the surface level, it seems to be a good phone with some outstanding features. Here's a more in-depth look at the phone. Key Features of OnePlus Nord CE2 Lite 5G Design When it comes to the appearance and general feel of the Nord CE 2 Lite, OnePlus has kept things rather basic. In fact, the Nord CE 2 Lite is on the verge of being pretty generic. The back of the phone is made of plastic, and despite its size, it measures just 8.5 millimeters in thickness. The display is totally flat on the front, and it is joined to the rear of the phone by a curving metallic band that meets the back of the phone. The rear panel of this device is entirely made of plastic. The back panel has a matte finish in most areas, and contains the modest glossy OnePlus logo. Regrettably, the familiar notifications slider option on the OnePlus is not there in this iteration.

A hole-punch selfie on the front side completes everything. Users have to confess that they are quite unaffected by the phone's appearance, which is something that may cut both ways. If you aren't too concerned about fashion, it's not likely to stick out too much (at least in black), but some individuals may prefer it to have a little bit more genuine design going on. However, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you do have some choices in this regard. Read: Oneplus 10R Lite: What will it offer? Display The phone's display is certainly sizable and colors and vibrancy are solid, although since it's an LCD, you simply won't get the true blacks and depth of an OLED or AMOLED display. Users will particularly be amazed that OnePlus has managed to shoehorn in a 120Hz refresh rate. This means that scrolling may be very smooth, and high frame rates are more rewarding while playing your game - the only difficulty being whether the phone can sustain that performance, which users will get on to. Camera OnePlus has also kept things quite basic in terms of its rear camera array, which mostly depends on one primary lens having 64 megapixels for a good degree of quality across all captured images.

You may crop into a 2x digital zoom anytime in order to get a squarer and more classic format, and the difference between the first and second photographs is shown below for your reference. From some photos captured by this phone, we have seen that images feature a good color palette, which is perhaps a touch more garish and vibrant than it is realistic. However, that is something that the majority of people are likely to love rather than despise. Some of our photos taken on purpose directly into the sun on a hot day, demonstrates that the camera can perform well in lighting conditions that are tough.

Moving on to the front of the phone, its selfie performance is absolutely good, but users will much like the results when they won’t utilize the now-required portrait mode. Moving on to the back of the phone, its performance while taking videos is also quite solid. Performance Obviously, a lot of the information presented here is about the phone's specifications on paper, and the experience of actually using the phone is not quite as straightforward. On the one hand, for instance, the display really does look fantastic the vast majority of the time, and the refresh rate is capable of producing an impression of real-world fluidity. On the other hand, the Snapdragon 695 5G at the phone's core might not be up to the task of handling this resolution and 120Hz. Users can be experiencing fairly consistent scrolling lag in a variety of applications. This is not due to a problem with the refresh rate but rather is something that occurs while the phone loads in more content. Read OnePlus 10R Review: Is it a worthy Midrange Flagship Killer? Even while gaming locally without the need to bring in data, there is still a tendency for latency, particularly if you crank up the graphics settings on the phone. Tests were conducted with the phone linked to super-fast 5G and dependable internet. Battery and Charging The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite has a 5,000mAh capacity, which enables it to comfortably survive through a typical day's worth of usage and even sometimes comes close to lasting for two full days. Another advantage of a phone this cheap is that it supports 33W rapid charging, and the charging brick that comes with it lets you charge up pretty quickly. There is no support for wireless charging on this device. Read Vivo T1 Pro 5G Review: Does it offer value for money? Price of OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite in Bangladesh The Nord CE 2 Lite is officially available in Bangladesh right now. Users can buy the 8GB by 128GB versions at BDT 29,990. However, the price is subject to change. Verdict The Nord CE 2 Lite is an inexpensive smartphone that offers a variety of appealing features despite its low price point. That being said, from the unit's LCD display to its mono speaker arrangement, the Nord CE 2 Lite will leave media enthusiasts wanting more in terms of sound quality and playback options. The CE 2 Lite makes use of a powerful chipset that is ready for 5G, and, despite the fact that it is not the fastest. In addition to that, in contrast to its rivals, the device provides users with the option of a bloat-free custom skin, which is fantastic. Read Motorola Moto G22 Review: Is it a worthy budget phone? One of the major drawbacks of the CE 2 Lite is the lack of a more powerful processor for all the high-end features it has. When all is considered, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is a respectable smartphone for OnePlus die-hards.
It's possible that OnePlus may launch the OnePlus 10R Lite in the Indian market very soon. It has been speculated that the handset in question would be a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace Racing Edition that was only recently introduced in China. This is not the first time people are seeing something like this, as the firm previously rebranded the OnePlus Ace as the OnePlus 10R for the Indian market. Key Features of Oneplus 10R Lite Design The Oneplus 10R Lite has a pretty high level of brand awareness due to its striking look. The 10R utilizes a plastic middle frame and a plastic rear cover. The overall grasp is fairly satisfying, and customers have a choice between two colours for the Oneplus 10R Lite: light speed blue and competitive grey. This selection allows customers' aesthetic requirements to be satisfied to a large extent. When it comes to lightness and thinness, the phone has a thickness of 8.7 millimetres and weighs 205 grams. The camera module section of the Oneplus 10R Lite employs a square matrix with three built-in cameras. In addition, the phone has a weight of 205 grams. Read Best Upcoming Smartphones in Bangladesh in June 2022 Screen The Oneplus 10R Lite comes with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Its screen is made of LCD material featuring a resolution of 1080p. It offers a 6-speed adaptive dynamic frame rate, and has AI intelligence dimming. Additionally, this model is extremely silky and smooth for day-to-day usage. The support to stream high-definition videos from services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video helps to make up for a few issues. These files make it possible for you to watch your favourite movies in high definition and round out the experience with a powerful speaker. Therefore, the screen of this latest OnePlus Smartphone may not be the best one available, but it offers the most value for the money by giving a screen of a good quality that is suitable for media consumption, such as viewing movies, playing games, or browsing social media websites. Read Infinix Hot 12 Review: Is it a good budget Smartphone? Camera This particular kind of smartphone, the Oneplus 10R Lite, has two cameras—one on the front and one on the back. Although the back camera employs a camera module with a "64 Megapixel main camera + 8 Megapixel wide-angle lens + 2 Megapixel macro lens," the front camera only has 16 Megapixels, yet the total image impact is still quite impressive. Xiaofang still supplies you with a few proofs in order to provide you with a deeper comprehension of the camera capabilities that are available in the Oneplus 10R Lite. Scenes are often rendered in a manner that is accurate thanks to the sensor's color science, which is thankfully not very sophisticated. Even in dim conditions, the main sensor of the smartphone does a respectable job of preserving the details of the scene. Having said that, the graininess of the images is quite noticeable, particularly when the night mode was used. The cameras did not have a dynamic range that was sufficient. The photographs that have been provided seem to have a tone that is fairly warm. Sometimes the tone makes the overall appearance of the photographs seem better, while other times, it makes it look worse. In low light, the contrast becomes more pronounced. To keep the same level of quality in photographs shot during the night, further attention is required. With the main camera, users are able to capture movies with maximum quality of 1080p at a frame rate of 30 fps. Read Vivo X80 Pro 5G Review: Is it a reasonable flagship Smartphone? Performance The Oneplus 10R Lite is powered by a processor known as the Dimensity 8100-MAX, which is essentially a modified version of the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC. As was said previously, the processor has already been included in the OnePlus Ace and the OnePlus 10R that are sold in India. On the software side, the phone comes preinstalled with Android 12.0-based ColorOS 12.1, which is the default operating system. The system supports up to 12 GB of random-access memory (RAM) and 256 GB of storage onboard. The Oneplus 10R Lite has exceptional overall performance when compared to other mobile devices. A comprehensive frame rate assessment was performed on each of them. The mobile game has an average frame rate of 59.7 frames per second. The Oneplus 10R Lite is supported by the MTK frame stabilization strategy and the GPA stabilization strategy of the HyperBoost game frame stabilization engine. Both of these strategies are intended to improve the overall quality of the gaming experience. The performance is excellent overall. Read OnePlus 10R Review: Is it a worthy Midrange Flagship Killer? Battery The Oneplus 10R Lite has a battery with 5,000 mAh capacity and is capable of wired fast charging at 65 watts. When the battery is completely depleted, it can be charged to 20 percent in five minutes, and the battery can be charged to 76 percent in thirty minutes. The final remaining battery capacity was measured by IGeekPhone to be 52 percent after it was subjected to a heavy endurance test that lasted for five hours.

According to some sources, the phone can be priced around INR 30,000, or BDT 34,471. The conversion rate here is 1 INR = 1.3 BDT. However, the official price in Bangladesh may change due to tax and other issues. Read Motorola Moto G52 Review: Is this mid-range budget phone worth buying?

It will also match the user's demands for battery life and imaging technologies. If you have a mid-level budget and want to get a game phone with a decent gaming console, wait for the Oneplus 10R Lite.
Since their merger with Oppo, OnePlus steadily ventured into the mid-range market with their Nord series. Fast forward to 2022, OnePlus has lined up a mid-range successor to their flagship 10 Pro. The phone is officially known as the OnePlus 10R globally. But the Chinese variant comes with the OnePlus Ace branding. The device officially launched globally on 4th May 2022. The company has long since lost its flagship killer title as it focused on the premium segment. But will the likes of 10R be able to revive that title for the Chinese brand? Let's find out. Key Features of OnePlus 10R Design and Build Quality The design of the OnePlus 10R is unlike any other previous device from the company. OnePlus is notoriously known for experimenting with the design with each iteration of its flagships. The same has trickled down to their entry-level device as well. Read Motorola Edge 30 Review: What’s special about this upper-midrange phone? The device itself is a plastic built one with the frame and the back both sporting frosted plastic. However, the back features a dual-tone with the right side being frosted and the left side having a vertical texture under the camera module. The OnePlus logo has also moved from the center position to the bottom right corner. The box-like frame can be easily compared with the iPhone 13 series as they both share the same thickness. Overall, the 10R design choice brings a breath of fresh air in a typical OnePlus fashion. Moving on to the ports and buttons, the right side houses the power button. Unlike the other OnePlus models, the volume rockers are situated on the opposite side of the power button. OnePlus finally removed the headphone jack this time around which was otherwise available on the Nord series. Read Infinix Note 12 Review: Is it worth buying? The bottom of the device features the secondary mic, sim slot, and Type-C port. The sim slot features dual nano sim options and unlike the predecessors, users won’t be able to swap one out for the micro SDXC. The 10R, in all its innovative approach with a few drawbacks still impresses, at least on the design front. The Display The OnePlus 10R features a 6.7-inch FHD+ plus display. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The panel is completely flat with no curves. Bezels on the panel also shrunk significantly to give a more uniform look all across the surface. The display is OnePlus’s own version of high AMOLED called Fluid AMOLED. Even though the panel is an FHD+ one, it is still stacked with features that are otherwise reserved for even higher-end panels. There is 1B color with a 120 Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. The HDR10+ will allow the device to stream at an even better quality making it a perfect media consumption device. Read Samsung Galaxy A23 4G: Can it uphold the reputation of ancestors? The panel can go up to 1200 nits under direct sunlight. Though users will have control of up to 800 nits as the max brightness is triggered by the light sensor. The display also boasts some of the best viewing angles on any smartphone. There’s virtually no color shift whatsoever. One thing to note is that the device comes with a warmer tone out of the box. Users will be easily able to color calibrate the panel from the settings. The Camera The camera on the OnePlus 10R is quite something to look at. It's one thing to move around the camera modules but what OnePlus has done here can only be called a “vertical triangle” setup of the triple sensors. Read Bluetooth Headphones Buyer Guide and Price Ranges in Bangladesh The main lens is the oversized one which takes much of the center stage. The 8 MP ultrawide and the 2 MP macro shooter finds their place at the foot of the main sensor on the two sides. Speaking of the main sensor, it is a 50 MP f/1.8 lens with PDAF and OIS. The OIS is a huge addition here as it significantly increases the video stability of the device. The main sensor performs similarly to the Nord 2 with decent color capture and dynamic range. The lens does an excellent job of exposing the subject to different lighting conditions all the while preserving the dynamic range of the shots. For low light environments, OnePlus has their proprietary night mode which arguably gives iPhone and Samsung a run for their money. In the test, the night mode perfectly captured the subject with the optimum amount of exposure and grain reduction. Read Vivo X Fold Review: Can it outsmart the other foldable phones? The selfie camera on the 10R is a 16 MP one. It’s a generic shooter which doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Overall, the camera system on the OnePlus 10R performs just as expected from it. Processor and Performance The OnePlus 10R sports MediaTek Dimensity 8100-Max. The 8000 series from MediaTek is a lighter version of their 900 range chips. The chipset is based on a 5 Nm architecture with 4 2.85 GHz Cortex-A78 and 4 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 chip configurations. The processor is also coupled with Mali-G610 MC6 GPU. The choice of going with MediaTek over Snapdragon is understandable even though all the high-end OnePlus devices are powered by Snapdragon. The 10R is after all a mid-range device so cost-cutting also becomes a priority. Read Xiaomi Redmi 10c Review: Can this budget phone fulfill users’ needs? Speaking of performance, the 8100-Max processor won’t let users down. The processor can easily run graphics-intensive games at a medium to high setup. There aren’t any lags but a few frames drops here and there. The device does an excellent job at power management. Even after an extended period of gaming, the device doesn’t heat up or lose a significant battery. So, who is this device for? The 10R can be a perfect choice for anyone looking for a utilitarian phone which can also be used as a light gaming device. Battery and Charge Time The OnePlus 10R comes in two variants – one that has a 5000 mAh battery which is the regular version. The other one is a 150W version which has a 4500 mAh battery. The 80W version can go from 0 to 100% in just 32 minutes whereas the 150W version can go from 0 to 100% in just 17 minutes. Read Walton Primo GH11 Review: The Ultra Budget Device Made in Bangladesh Price of OnePlus 10R The price for the 8/256 GB variant of the OnePlus 10R in the Indian market is 42,999 Rs. The price roughly translates to 48,435 BDT (1 INR = 1.13 BDT). However, in Bangladesh, the official price of the OnePlus 10R is subject to change depending on various factors. Verdict The OnePlus 10R is yet another capable device from the brand that has become synonymous with high power performance. Even though the 10R is aimed at the mid-range market, the pricing would justify its position at the upper end of the mid-range category. As a result, some of the choices like a plastic body don’t exactly reflect the premium pricing users will have to pay for the device. Other than that, the device absolutely shines in the display, camera, and especially the battery department. So, should you buy it? If you are on the lookout for a powerful and reliable android at a less than flagship price, then definitely yes. But if the build quality is your concern, then OnePlus 10R won’t live up to the expectation. read Best Upcoming Smartphones in May 2022 in Bangladesh
Ever since the release of the OnePlus One back in 2014, OnePlus has strived to merge affordability with performance. The pursuit of providing performance at an affordable price got them the tag “Flagship Killer”. Over the years the company also slowly ventured into the highly competitive mid-range and entry-level budget market with their Nord and N series respectively. As the Q2 of 2022 approaches, there has been a buzzing rumor about the OnePlus Nord N20, the entry-level budget device from OnePlus this year. Here is everything that is known so far about the device. Leaks and Rumours of OnePlus NORD N20 5G The global launch date of the OnePlus Nord N20 is not known yet. The supposed release date in the US is slated to be on the 28th of April with T-Mobile being the exclusive carrier of the device in North America. Design and Build Quality The N series devices have been the bare entry-level devices from OnePlus. So expectedly, there are a lot of cut corners and it all starts with the build. The build quality of the device itself is pretty solid. But the device is made of plastic on the back and the frame with a glass front. The front of the device is protected with Gorilla Glass 3 which brings better protection for the front compared to the previous iterations. Overall, the device and its build quality are acceptable considering the price. Read Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Here is Everything We Know So Far The design of the device echoes the iPhone 12 with its boxed edges and the vertical camera module. The buttons and port selection are as usual with the retained 3.5 mm headphone jack and the standard Type-C port. The sim slot will include a hybrid setup for the second sim or a micro SDXC. There is also an under-display fingerprint scanner on the device. This was a pleasant surprise considering that OnePlus is bringing the under-display fingerprint tech even to the budget segment devices. However, it's not all happy and good. The fan-favorite alert slider is absent this year as well. It's apparent that going forward, OnePlus will not include the alert slider in the budget devices. Display Other than the design, the display has the biggest upgrade here. The OnePlus N10 featured an IPS LCD panel. Now the choice of LCD panel in the budget segment is understandable but it doesn’t compete with the AMOLED panels in any way. Fast forward to the Nord N20, and OnePlus has gone with an FHD+ AMOLED panel. Read Samsung Galaxy A13 4G Review: Does it live up to the hype? This is the same panel found on the OnePlus 7 so the quality is uncompromised here. The blacks look deep with high contrast. OnePlus AMOLED panels are calibrated on warm tones. But users can easily change the tone as per their liking from the display settings. The panel does not support HDR 10+ content nor does it have a high refresh rate. But that is acceptable considering the aggressive price of the device. Camera The OnePlus Nord N20 features a triple camera setup. There is a 48 MP f/2.8 wide-angle main sensor. There is an additional 8 MP as well as 2 MP ultrawide and depth sensor respectively. The sensor housing on the main lens and the ultrawide one has been designed to be significantly larger compared to the depth sensor. The vertically aligned sensors bring that distinct iPhone 12 look to the N20. Speaking of the camera performance, the main sensor delivers more than enough. The sensor can capture a great number of details on the subject all the while preserving the dynamic range. The portrait mode works better on the N20 than it did on the N10 and the edge detection seems more on point here. There are certain exposure issues as the lens might struggle while moving fast from low light to brightly lit areas. Read Oppo F21 Pro Review: Camera Phone Made in Bangladesh The OnePlus dedicated night mode is back here and this alone gives the camera a perfect advantage over its market competitors. The high exposure in dimly lit environments eliminates grains and noises drastically. The videography of the N20 is rated at 1080P at 30 fps max. considering the capable sensor, OnePlus could’ve definitely pushed for at least 60 fps but the processor limits the ability here. Processor and Performance The OnePlus Nord N20 5G features the mid-range Snapdragon 695 5G processor based on the 6 Nm architecture. The 600 series have mainly been the entry-level processor from Snapdragon replacing the 400 series. On top of that, using the octa-core processor with 2 2.2 GHz Kryo 660 Gold and 6 1.7 GHz Kryo 660 Silver chip design means the performance of the device will be near the mid-range category than entry-level ones. And the performance shows in UI and daily usage. The phone absolutely blazes through simple tasks like navigation, browsing social media, or consuming content. The processor also performs fairly well in gaming. Graphics intensive 3D titles like Asphalt 9 and Call of Duty see a few frame drops here and there at max settings. But the main problem here is that the device gets heated very fast. So it's better to stick to 2D games here. Read Walton Primo S8 Mini: A Budget Friendly Gaming Phone The global launch will feature the Oxygen OS from OnePlus on top of Android 11. This is a letdown considering most devices launching in Q2 are already coming with Android 12. Other than that, it’s a decent-performing device, not too fast, not too slow either. Battery and Charging Time The exact battery capacity of the OnePlus Nord N20 is not known yet. But given how the device resembles the entry-level market with a not-so-powerful processor, it is expected that the battery will range between 4500 to 5000 mAh. There will be a 30 W wired fast charge included with the device. OnePlus NORD N20 5G Official Price in Bangladesh The OnePlus Nord N20 5G has not yet been officially announced in Bangladesh. However, the device will go on sale in the USA for 282 dollars exclusively through T-Mobile. That roughly brings the price in Bangladesh to around 24,381 BDT (1 USD = 86.46 BDT). However, the price may change depending on the tax, supply, and company policy. Read Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus Review: Is it worth it? Verdict The OnePlus Nord N20 5G is an incremental update on the entry-level device from OnePlus. Even though it’s a year-on-year release, it still brings noticeable developments in the processor, camera, and display departments. The device isn’t a gaming phone in any way, so heavy users shouldn’t go for this device. Rather it's aimed at people looking for a casual device at an affordable price.
