As for the OnePlus Nord 2, the device doesn’t include any gaming gears onboard but it’s a rather simple phone with all the necessary aspects a user (casual or moderate) would require. Notably, OnePlus has worked closely with Mediatek to design a customized chipset for the new OnePlus Nord phone. Although both the new Poco and OnePlus phones share similar MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, the latter offers AI-tweaked hardware. Early reviewers cited the OnePlus Nord 2 to have managed to deliver smooth day-to-day performance with AI-capable hardware. That said, the OnePlus Nord 2 offer stereo speakers for an enhanced audio experience, but this time around OnePlus has ditched the much-required 3.5mm audio jack.

The OnePlus Nord 2, takes up a score in the memory department. While the Poco phone’s high-end model comes with 8GB RAM/256GB storage, the new Nord 2 offers 12GB RAM/256GB storage, although you will have to shell an extra Rs 3,000 to grab this higher RAM model.

On the software front, the new Poco phone runs MIUI 12.5 on top of Android 11 OS. The Nord 2 phone, on the other hand, runs OxygenOS 11.3 based Android 11. As far as cameras are concerned, the Poco F3 GT sports a 64-megapixel triple camera setup with the main sensor built with an ED (extra-low dispersion) glass for better clarity while shooting.

Poco F3 GT vs OnePlus Nord 2: Which one should you buy?

If you consider the specs sheet, the Poco F3 GT takes up those extra points in terms of display and internals. While the OnePlus Nord 2 wins in the memory department. However, the question comes down as to which one to pick. If you are a gaming aficionado and looking for a mid-range gamer enhanced device, then the Poco F3 GT will no doubt check those requisite boxes like physical triggers, high-fidelity stereo speakers, vapour chambers for heat dissipation. Moreover, the phone has IP53 rated dust resistance which isn’t available on the OnePlus phone. That aside, if you are a casual user who doesn’t prefer those fancy keys but rather a device with a simplistic design in bright colour coats, then OnePlus Nord 2 would be the right pick for you.
