OnePlus Nord CE4 Review in 10 Points 

design

The OnePlus Nord CE4 has a plastic back which feels like glass and does a good job at repelling fingerprints and smudges. The rear also has a pill shaped camera module. Moreover, it also has an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance. 

display

The OnePlus Nord CE4 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. The displays has deep blacks and vibrant colours which might be too punchy for some. The overall media consumption experience is great thanks to the stereo speakers. 

Rear Camera

The OnePlus Nord CE4 has a 50MP+8MP dual rear camera setup. The photos have natural colours, balanced white balance and decent details. The Hi-Res mode captures more details but comes at the cost of colour accuracy. Overall, it is a reliable camera in both bright and dim conditions. 

front camera

The OnePlus Nord CE4 has a 16MP front camera for selfies and video calling. It does a good job at capturing accurate skin tones but lacks details. 

performance

At its core, the OnePlus Nord CE4 features a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 SoC. It scores well in benchmarks, is ahead of devices in its segment, does a good job at gaming and thermal management too. However, the POCO X6 Pro still scores better in benchmarks. 

software

The OnePlus Nord CE4 runs on OxygenOS 14 based on Android 14. This version of OxygenOS is clean, light, responsive and we did not face any stutters. Sadly, it only gets two major OS updates which is lesser than some devices in its segment. 

Battery

The OnePlus Nord CE4 is powered by a 5,500mAh battery. It lasts over 16 hours in the PCMark Battery test which is impressive. Even in real-world usage, you can easily get an entire days worth battery life. 

Charging

The OnePlus Nord CE4 supports 100W SuperVOOC charging and the charger is provided in the box. It takes around 35 minutes to fully charge from 0 to 100 percent. 

verdict

The OnePlus Nord CE4 excels in display quality, camera performance, battery life and even the overall speed of the device thanks to the processor as well as the clean software. The major downsides are video recording quality and 2 years of OS updates. Apart from this, the Nord CE4 is a great choice for daily use.
