OnePlus Nord N10

"The OnePlus Nord N10 5G isn’t quite as mind blowing as the original Nord, but it does manage to drive the cost down even lower than its predecessor. The OnePlus Nord N10 5G does everything quite well, but doesn’t excel in any area other than value. It really does excel there though."

OnePlus is back to doing what it does best—gracefully undercutting the big phone brands.

  • No wireless charging
  • No official IPX water-resistance rating
  • There are better-priced alternatives if you don't need 5G
