Design

1.weight

184g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

8.2mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

158.3mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

73.3mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

95.15cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.resolution

1080 x 2400px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.screen size

6.44"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.has branded damage-resistant glass
OnePlus Nord
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
4.Gorilla Glass version

5

Gorilla Glass is one of the most popular brands of chemically strengthened glass, manufactured by Corning. Several versions have been developed, the newer ones being more durable and providing better damage resistance.
5.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
OnePlus Nord
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
6.has a touch screen
OnePlus Nord
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 x 2.4GHz & 1 x 2.2GHz & 6 x 1.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

12GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.internal storage

256GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
4.Has integrated LTE
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
5.semiconductor size
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
6.RAM speed
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

48MP & 8MP & 5MP & 2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.has built-in optical image stabilization
OnePlus Nord
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
3.video recording (main camera)

3840 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.8 & f/2.3 & f/2.4 & f/2.4

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
5.Has a dual-tone LED flash
OnePlus Nord
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
6.has a BSI sensor
OnePlus Nord
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
OnePlus Nord
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.Has a radio
OnePlus Nord
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.battery power

4115mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.Supports fast charging
OnePlus Nord
Fast charging technologies, like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge or MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the time it takes to charge a device. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes.
3.Has an ultra power-saving mode
OnePlus Nord (Android 10)
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
4.has a battery level indicator
OnePlus Nord
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has a rechargeable battery
OnePlus Nord
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed
The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
OnePlus Nord
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
3.has NFC
OnePlus Nord
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
4.Has a fingerprint scanner
OnePlus Nord
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
5.Bluetooth version
