What the Critics Are Saying...


Coolsmartphone

A fantastic option for those wanting a Flagship without having to break the bank. OnePlus has brought the "flagship killer" back.

- Garry Clark, Coolsmartphone
Firstpost

The OnePlus Nord 2 is a surprisingly powerful phone that not just offers better value for money than the OnePlus 9 series phones, but also flaunts a couple of extra features.

- Ameya Dalvi, Firstpost
Mighty Gadget

The OnePlus Nord 2 is an outstanding and well-rounded phone offering all the important bits I want from a flagship phone but for around half the price. For the time being, there is no other phone I'd opt for over this, at this price point.

- James Smythe, Mighty Gadget
Laptop Mag

The Nord 2 takes OnePlus back to its flagship killer routes with a balanced mid-range phone that nails most of the essentials.

- Jason England, Laptop Mag
Recombu

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a very good phone in an affordable package, and it should impress you with its processing performance and photography abilities. However, it’s slightly let down by mediocre battery life and the lack of an official IP rating.

- Peter Phelps, Recombu

Common Questions


The Nord 2 price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare OnePlus Nord 2 prices from around the web here on The Informr.


OnePlus backs up the Nord 2 with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your Nord 2 has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact OnePlus support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find OnePlus's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.
