Coming up on the software and performance, so the OnePlus Nord N20 features an OxygenOS 11. However, it isn’t the latest OS version, but OxygenOS 11 is preferred over OxygenOS 12.
One disappointment is the bloatware that OnePlus phones usually don’t have. Make sure you read the prompts carefully in the initial setup. Because by just clicking on next you could mistakenly give permission for necessary apps’ installation. These bloat apps in the phone can be removed as well. Moreover, the phone has a clean interface with enough customisation options and settings.
The OnePlus N20 is powered by a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset. It is capable of providing improved performance with reduced battery consumption. This phone comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
Many phones in this price range feature a 64-megapixel camera. While only megapixels don’t work in providing a better picture quality. Here in N20, it seems that the main camera is the same as the predecessor N10 had. The image stabilisation isn’t good enough, also, the autofocus is only available in the primary camera.
It has a triple rear camera setup; a 64-megapixel primary camera, 2-megapixel macro shooter and 2-megapixel depth sensor. The ultrawide camera is also missing. Whereas, it has a 16-megapixel front camera. The rear camera and selfie camera can shoot 1080p videos at 30 frames per second.
The OnePlus Nord N20 is a good phone if you are not much concerned about the camera. The performance, software, display, and design are commendable. The cameras aren’t suitable for low light pictures. As the pictures that were taken at night are not much satisfying. RightNow the phone is only available in the US.
The features are well satisfying and the gaming experience is also good with this phone. The OnePlus Nord N20 is a lightweight phone, that features a more vibrant and brighter display, excellent performance and thermal management as well.
