OnePlus Nord DxOMark performance is what you’d expect

OnePlus Nord DxOMark performance is what you’d expect

The OnePlus Nord marks the company's return to an underserved mid-tier smartphone market. By using a different name, OnePlus is ensuring that it won't be confused for its higher-end models and that consumers will be able to set their expectations right. Those expectations shouldn't be high, to begin with, but it would also be a disservice to write it off completely. As DxOMark found out, the OnePlus Nord does decently when it comes to taking photos and recording videos, as long as you don't expect to produce award-winning pieces from it.

OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition unboxing – a packaging design masterpiece

OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Edition unboxing – a packaging design masterpiece

This week I unboxed the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 edition, and I was shocked. The phone, the bits I'd seen in the preview several weeks ago, those weren't shocking. They did not disappoint! But it was the detail in every element I wasn't able to see in the preview that surprised me. I was surprised to see such quality and extreme attention to detail in every aspect of the design of this device, from the outermost packaging to the materials used throughout.

Xiaomi POCO M3 to take on OnePlus Nord N100 in Europe

Xiaomi POCO M3 to take on OnePlus Nord N100 in Europe

Once upon a time, Xiaomi spun off a new brand that tried to one-up OnePlus at its own game. To some extent, it succeeded in offering premium or mid-tier specs at a cheaper price but that came at the cost of less premium materials. POCO, previously also known as Pocophone, seems to have taken a backseat recently, especially after it started launching what were basically rebranded Xiaomi and Redmi models. On Tuesday, however, it will try to return to the stage, at least in Europe, with a POCO M3 that will try to again steal the spotlight from OnePlus' new line of affordable mid-range phones.

OnePlus 9 Pro renders show the return of curves

OnePlus 9 Pro renders show the return of curves

OnePlus has been playing around with its designs lately, not sticking to one to last more than a generation. The company was initially slow to jump on fads but now it seems to be picking and choosing some of the styles it likes. A few months ago, it unveiled the OnePlus 8T which, for the first time, didn't come with a Pro model. Next year seems to be a return to form, figuratively and literally, with a OnePlus 9 Pro that will once again sport a screen that curves at the edges.

OnePlus Nord N100 may have a 90Hz screen after all

OnePlus Nord N100 may have a 90Hz screen after all

OnePlus made a name for itself with its "Never Settle" slogan, referring to its promise to bring top-notch features that its bigger competitors offer at a much higher price. Of late, that included the now common trend of giving smartphones screens with fast refresh rates, from 90Hz to 120Hz to even 144Hz. Last year, OnePlus committed to make that feature a staple on all its future smartphones but now it seems it has briefly flip-flopped when it came to its super affordable OnePlus Nord N100.

OnePlus Buds are $1 at 4 times today – AirPods alternative anyone?

OnePlus Buds are $1 at 4 times today – AirPods alternative anyone?

Today the folks at OnePlus are making what appears to be a very, very limited number of their wireless earbuds available for one dollar. That's $1 instead of $79 for the OnePlus Buds, $1 instead of $50 for the Bullets Wireless Z, and "free shipping" for the OnePlus Buds Z throughout the day. Based on what we've experienced with these earbuds, there's almost certainly no way a $1 cost is higher than the value they present.

OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 10.0.1 update brings back camera EIS

OnePlus 5 OxygenOS 10.0.1 update brings back camera EIS

OnePlus is getting a lot of flack now for its unexpected stance on Android updates for the OnePlus Nord but, to its credit, the company has had a more commendable record compared to other companies. It has, for example, even extended its updates to older models, like the OnePlus 5 and 5T from way back in 2017. Those two phones are getting yet another update and although it's not that big, it brings much-needed fixes that have remained unaddressed for almost half a year.

New OnePlus Nord phones have a serious Android update limit

New OnePlus Nord phones have a serious Android update limit

Back in October, OnePlus revealed the Nord N10 5G and the N100. Both phones are budget devices with the Nord N10 5G serving up 5G functionality on the cheap. Budget phone options seem to be picking up steam in the age of the $1000+ flagship, but before you decide you want a Nord N10 5G or an N100, you might want to pump the brakes a bit.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G is another Moto G moment

OnePlus Nord N10 5G is another Moto G moment

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G is a turning point for the company - and for you, if you buy the device. It is at this point that OnePlus moves beyond a single line of phones - or two lines of phones (regular and budget), or even three (with the Pro line). Now we've got OnePlus, a budget line with Nord, and another pair of phones (N10 5G and N100). What are we to make of this? We've had the device for enough time now that I'm able to start making serious considerations about not only its features and capabilities, but about what it represents for the company - and you, the consumer of OnePlus products.

OnePlus 8 OxygenOS 11 Beta wipes user data, fix sort of available

OnePlus 8 OxygenOS 11 Beta wipes user data, fix sort of available

For a while, it seemed that the dreaded OnePlus launch curse was finally gone for good but while the OnePlus 8T remains unscathed, its predecessor might be the one suffering from it instead. The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro phones on the Open Beta channel recently received what was erroneously labeled as a stable OxygenOS 11.0.1.1 update. Beyond just a typo, however, the update actually ended up wiping beta testers' phones clean, and OnePlus' "fix" saves only a small number of those affected by this bug.

OnePlus Nord SE tip hints at the company’s new direction

OnePlus Nord SE tip hints at the company’s new direction

OnePlus certainly seems to be entering a new chapter in its life, though there might be some apprehension about the decisions it has so far made. Expanding its portfolio, it created a new line of mid-range Nord phones that are pretty much below OnePlus' usual products. It has also started to shift its OxygenOS away from the stock Android experience its fans loved. Just weeks after it announced its newest Nord phones, OnePlus is rumored to already be preparing for the next one that will introduce at least one upgrade to the line.
