For its new mid-range smartphone Nord 2, OnePlus has made generous use of the ingredients in its upper-range models. The recipe is convincing: the Nord 2 combines fast charging and long runtimes with a new MediaTek chipset, the performance of which comes close to the well-known chips from the smartphone luxury league.

Despite its 6.4-inch display, the Nord 2 remains reasonably compact, and the workmanship with the glass back is rock solid. The Nord 2 is one of the first smartphones available in Germany with the Dimensity 1200. MediaTek builds the chip in 1-3-4 architecture with four energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores, three Cortex-A78 cores with up to 2.6 GHz and another A78 core for a maximum of 3.0 GHz.

The benchmark tests attest the Dimensity 1200’s performance comparable to that of the Snapdragon 870; it does not quite reach the values ​​of the Snapdragon 888. However, the MediaTek chip throttled more strongly than the Snapdragon 870 under continuous load. The smartphone remains minimally behind in graphics benchmarks – measurable, but not noticeable in practice. The OnePlus Nord 2 can also handle demanding applications and several apps that are open at the same time.
