Both the OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Nord CE 5G have their strong points. As the name of the OnePlus Nord “Core Edition” 5G suggests, this smartphone focuses on the fundamentals including a good display, a bigger 4,500 mAh battery that supports 30 T Plus Warp Charge tech and a 64 MP triple rear camera setup. It also promises to be nicer to hold than the standard Nord because it’s lighter (weighing 170 gm) and is just 7.9 mm-thick.

Priced lower than the standard OnePlus Nord, the Nord CE 5G also features a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which is missing from the former device. Finally, OnePlus has regained its senses!

An important thing to note is the Nord CE 5G has a plastic body, whereas the OnePlus Nord has a metallic build. The Nord also comes with a more powerful chipset than the Nord CE 5G. This is where the company has decided to save costs, and hence the lower asking price of Rs 22,999 for the CE 5G.

Which one should you buy, you ask. While at the end of the day it comes down to your budget and expectations, at a premium of a mere Rs 2,000, the standard OnePlus Nord appears to still be the one to pick.
