Thanks to the Snapdragon 765G processor and 12GB RAM, the OnePlus Nord is pretty powerful. Apps like Netflix and YouTube aren't an issue for this device.

    After years of clinging to my OnePlus 5T, I decided to renew.
    The prices around 1000 euros for modern devices were the point that kept me from switching.

    With the arrival of the OnePlus Nord, this was a possible solution for me.
    After closely following the launch and additional reviews, I took the step to pre-order the device.

    I have chosen the OnePlus Nord Onyx Gray 12GB 256GB.

    The first thing that struck me was the weight of the device. This is quite higher than that of my 5T but immediately gives a feeling of solidity.
    The plastic frame does not detract from the overall qualitative look & feel.

    As usual, the packaging contains the device with a plastic screen protector, a sim ejection tool, a transparent cover, some Nord stickers, paperwork, 30W Warp Charger and the recognizable, red USB-C cable.

    The first start-up of the device went smoothly, with the well-known google steps.
    The OnePlus Switch app can be used as soon as the device was fully started.
    Using the Switch app did not go smoothly the first time.
    There was a 50GB of data to transfer but the app had a hard time transferring apps. Presumably since apps are installed automatically as soon as you sign up a known google account.

    After a factory reset, go through the same steps and chose to copy only personal data and history via the Switch app. This went smoothly.

    The first thing you notice is the pill-shaped punchhole with the double front camera. It takes some getting used to at the beginning, but Android knows how to integrate this nicely in applications in most cases, so that after a few hours of use it is hardly noticeable anymore.
    You can choose to have a black bar at all times so that the punchhole no longer stands out, but then you have a strange edge ratio.

    The speed of the device is simply superb. Certainly coming from the 5T, this is another step-up and the chipset should not be too inferior
