OnePlus Nord Blue Marble (11)The last OnePlus device I reviewed was the OnePlus 6, and back then, I thought that was a great device, so it’s exciting to know that the brand has now ventured into the midrange segment with the OnePlus Nord.

The phone seems impressive on paper, but its PhP21,990 price tag places it above most of the other midrangers in the scene. The question is, can it justify the difference?
