OnePlus Nord N20 5G vs. Nokia X100: best 5G phone under $300?

OnePlus announced the Nord N20 5G as its new best 5G smartphone for the US, but despite its low price, it has some competition with names like the Nokia X100. Priced below US$300, the North N20 should appeal to those who own a 5G smartphone who don’t want to carry a Buraco in their pocket. OnePlus has expanded its mid-range offering with its North Line, amassing new models since it was first announced in 2020. Meanwhile, only four have reached the US.

Compared to other major markets such as China and India, there are fewer options for Android smartphones in the US, especially in the economic and intermediate segment. China’s Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo and OPPO are among the leading brands in the orchestra space, but do not sell their products in the US. The brands that sell their products in the country have a limited selection.

the Nord N20 5G and Nokia X100 5G are very different display phones. The OnePlus opted for a flat design with lines and edges, while the Nokia phone has many curves. Both phones have front-facing cameras mounted on their phones, with the Nord N20 5G not on the top left and the Nokia X100 not the Meio. In terms of design, the OnePlus phone also has a dual camera setup in vertical alignment. In contrast, the Nokia X100 has a curved structure and a set of quadrupled cameras in a round module. The OnePlus Nord N20 5G and Nokia X100 can only be bought in one color: Blue Smoke and Midnight Blue respectively.

The OnePlus Nord N20 5G is the lower of the two with its 6.43 inch screen. The fabric is an AMOLED panel with an FHD+ resolution and an update rate of 60 Hz. In contrast, the Nokia X100 has a larger 6.67 pole FHD+ 60Hz LCD panel. The Nokia phone has an 8nm Snapdragon 480 5G processor with two Cortex-A76 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores. Not as powerful as the 6nm Snapdragon 695 in the OnePlus Nord N20, which has two Cortex-A77 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores. Despite the exceptional differences, both phones have 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage with support for expansion via MicroSD card slot.

In terms of cameras, the Nord N20 5G has a 64MP f/1.79 main camera with a 2MP monochrome camera and a 2MP camera with macro lens. The Nokia X100 has a 48MP main camera with Zeiss Optics, a 5MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera. It also has a 16 MP sensor on the front for selfies and video cameras. Both phones have headphones, USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.1, dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC. They also have support for face unlock, as well as a digital image scanner. The North N20’s digital image scanner is embedded in the fabric, while the Nokia X100 has a side wave that acts like a competition/drop button. The Nokia phone also has a special Google Assistant button on the side. Nokia ships the phone with a 4,470 mAh battery that lasts up to two days in a second. It supports 18W fast charging and comes with a charger in the box. The OnePlus, on the other hand, equips the Nord N20 5G with a slightly smaller 4,300mAh battery, but supports 33W fast charging. Like all other OnePlus phones to date, a power adapter comes with the phone.

Both phones launched after the launch of Android 12, they run on the older Android 11. OnePlus promises three years of security updates, but only an update of the operating system for Android 12. Given that it is more than five months after the launch of Android 12 was launched, this is best described as a smart move, but it’s not an income exercise. Those who choose Nokia have an Android experience, while the OnePlus phone has OxygenOS at the top. For $282, the OnePlus Nord N20 5G offers an AMOLED display, a powerful portable media chipset, and faster charging speeds than rival devices offer. Given these benefits, the Nokia X100, a bit cheaper, starting at US$252, also sold by T-Mobile and Metro to T-Mobile, doesn’t seem like a good deal, as it has a less powerful processor and loads a lot more.
