Design and Build Quality
The N10 5G design is somehow similar to Samsung Galaxy A51, which has a rectangular quad-camera setup at the back. The frame and the back panel are plastic made but look like glass and metal. The shiny plastic makes the phone slippery, which is why you should use it with a case. The branding and the 1+ logo are printed under the surface. The fingerprint scanner is on the back, above the OnePlus logo. The power key is on the upper right side, while a volume rocker is on the left, along with a SIM and microSD card tray. A 3.5mm headphone jack lies on the bottom, on the right of an in-call microphone and USB-C port. There is a single mic hole at the top of the phone.
The phone on the front has Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The top left corner is the home for the selfie shooter with a punch hole. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels IPS LCD with a refresh rate of 90Hz. And the phone weighs 190 grams.
The latest and the cheapest 5G chipset from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 690 5G, is used and an octa-core processor (2×2.0 GHz Kryo 560 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 560 Silver combination) along with the graphics of Adreno 619L.
The Nord N10 5G runs OxygenOs 10.5 on top of Android 10 and has an inbuilt storage of 128GB, which is expandable through a microSD card of up to 512GB. It consists of a dual SIM tray that accepts nano-SIM cards.
The primary camera of 64MP, an ultra-wide camera of 8MP, a macro camera of 2MP, and a monochrome shooter of 2MP are present. For the selfie, a 16MP front-facing camera is available.
The daylight photo looks good enough. But due to the image processing, the colors may get washed out and give low contrast. The zoom camera is not present; however, the camera has a 2x zoom. For the ultra-wide camera, a bit of noise is unfiltered. A monochrome camera is an extra camera in N10 which works in tandem with the primary camera. The phone can also shoot macro samples with the recommended distance of between 1 and 1.5 inches away from the object. Portraits look better in outdoor lighting. The panorama and HDR are also available.
The selfie camera is not good enough in metering the exposure in bright light, but the shots are satisfactory. It also has an HDR feature. The selfie shooter is cable of shooting up to 1080p videos @30fps.
The N10 can shoot the video up to 4K @30fps or 1080p @60fps. The electronic stabilization is present except for 60fps videos and 2x zoom videos. Similarly, the ultra-wide camera is limited to 1080p video @30fps.
Packed with a battery of 4300 mAh, the Nord supports Wrap Charge 30T charging. It can power up a day’s power in half an hour as per the company’s claim. The full charging of the phone can take around an hour. A bonus point is, the phone can be charged with a USB PD charger too.
