Maybe OnePlus will come to their senses and give us Oneplus nord In the US and not only through that weird beta program, where you have almost no chance of getting a phone to test. Maybe they won’t. They probably won’t. I don’t know, man, I just wish they would. The OnePlus Nord is one hell of a package for the price they are charging overseas.
I keep thinking about the specs, then the price, and then all the other Snapdragon 765 phones that are competing with this phone. Will you buy the Galaxy A71 5G over the Nord? Eh, maybe not. Will you buy LG Velvet above Nord? God no, not with that 60Hz display and software for $ 599. Pixel 5 is likely to have the same chip and a possible $ 699 price tag. Would you really spend $ 300 more to get Google’s camera and pixel experience? Wow, this is tough.
Although I’m sure OnePlus has valid reasons for leaving the US, it still seems like an missed opportunity. I don’t know if they are fully carriers at this point and the margin is too thin on the Nord for carrier attachment, if their numbers are showing declining unlocked phone sales in the US, or they are not really ready yet in India or Launch outside Europe.
It just seems like such an easy call to pitch. We are still living through an epidemic in the US, yet here is a budget-friendly phone that is hundreds less than comparable devices. This is the perfect tool for a time where people are not necessarily interested in spending $ 1,000 on a phone.
If the OnePlus Nord came here, would you buy it?
