Design

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite smartphone is well-built. The sleek design and flat edges at all four corners give it a sophisticated appeal. There is a punch hole in the upper left corner of the phone's front panel. You will find the vertical camera island at the upper left on the back. The bottom of the phone has a matte-mix gradient texture that is soft to the touch. The camera system protruding from the body includes three sensors. The power button can be found on the right panel. It integrates the fingerprint scanner. It allows for device unlocking quickly and reliably. You will find the SIM tray and volume rockers on the left panel. The bottom is where you will find the speaker grille, USB Type C charging connector, and 3.5mm audio ports.

Display

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G has a 6.59-inch LCD that supports FHD resolution. It is very colorful. The panel supports a 120Hz refresh rate, making it ideal for gaming and smooth scrolling. The thin profile of the bezel allows for maximum screen space. Widevine L1 certifications are suitable for those who stream a lot online. This certification will enable you to stream FHD videos on OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

It is bright and provides fast colors. However, it lacks the punchiness and vibrancy of AMOLED displays. The display was easy to use. It can be used to watch videos, and it is visible outdoors in direct sunlight. The panel's color reproduction is good for video playback and gaming.



Processor, Software

We didn't experience any lags or stutters during our general usage. The Nord CE 2 Lite's 6GB RAM was sent to us for review. You can also add up to 13GB RAM via virtual RAM with 5GB of virtual RAM. The handset comes with 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a MicroSD card.

Pre-installed on the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite is Android 12 OS topped by OxygenOS 112.1 UI. The user interface has a new look and includes enhanced security and privacy features. OxygenOS 12 features a new dark mode and improved data privacy. We didn't notice any noticeable lag in the handset during our use. The handset runs smoothly with heavy apps and games.

Camera Performance

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite features a triple rear camera system with a 64MP primary sensor and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization). The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite also has a 2MP depth camera and a macro lens. At this price, the absence of an ultrawide lens is noticeable. It might have been a complete package if the phone had an ultra-wide sensor in place of a dedicated macro lens. The selfie camera on the smartphone is a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor. Both the primary rear and selfie cameras can shoot at 1080p @30 fps.

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G has many camera features, including Slow-Motion and AI Scene Enhancement. The smartphone's primary camera is capable of capturing clear details in daylight. Outdoor shots were successful. We were impressed by the accuracy of the colors and the details captured. Portraits have a decent blur effect.

The selfies are great on the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. The selfies taken during daylight are well-taken and have good details. Overall, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite camera performance is good for general photography.



Battery

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite is powered by a 5,000mAh battery that can be charged via 33W fast charging. It is very efficient for day-to-day usage. The battery can last for between 8 and 9 hours. We used the device for video playback, gaming, and general web browsing. The 33W SUPERVOOC charger can quickly charge the phone. In less than an hour, the smartphone can be set.

OnePlus Nord CE2 Lite: What Do We Think?

The OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite smartphone is the first to be priced below Rs. 20,000. The device is very affordable and offers excellent performance. It excels in general user performance but has some flaws with the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. Although the display is 120Hz, it does not have HDR capabilities. This is not a problem, and it can be used in most situations. The Nord CE 2 Lite, in our opinion, is a solid phone you should consider if your budget is tight.
