The OnePlus Nord N200 5G took me by surprise. It costs just $240, yet I can’t believe how many great features it shares with the OnePlus 9 Pro, which costs almost four times as much. If you want fast 5G speeds and a great Android OS experience on a budget, then the N200 is worth a look.
You can see the OnePlus Nord N200’s budget bones in the specifications below. Don’t be expecting the highest-end processor, gobs of RAM, or a luscious AMOLED display, such as the one you’ll find on the OnePlus 9 Pro. However, the N200 is still well-sized, fairly thin and light, and adequately equipped.
