OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G review: OnePlus goes generic

OnePlus has been taking some questionable decisions this year with respect to their phone business and the Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is one of them. The Nord and Nord 2 were good additions to the company's mid-range portfolio and offered a nice mix of features and performance under Rs. 30,000.

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Review: Top-tier performance at mid-range price?

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is being marketed as the device that would fill in the shoes of the original OnePlus Nord and do a better job.
