As you can tell, POCO F3 GT has a better display. Both of these smartphones are visible under the sunlight and has Widevine L1 support which means, there won’t be any problem streaming FHD+ content on OTT platforms.

Also, both of the phones are protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides.

Talking about OnePlus Nord 2 5G, the 50MP sensor has OIS support which helps a lot while shooting videos.

As I have said in the OnePlus Nord 2 5G review, if you want the best camera under 30k then it’s better to go with Nord 2 because the phone has a Sony IMX766 sensor optimized by OnePlus. Also, this is the same sensor as the OnePlus 9.

POCO F3 GT is a gaming smartphone, but POCO has done a good job with the camera, but it’s not as good as OnePlus Nord 2.

By the way, both phones can shoot videos at [email protected] with the rear camera while the front can shoot up to [email protected] Keep in mind, POCO F3 GT doesn’t have OIS support while OnePlus Nord 2 has OIS.

In short, if you want the best cameras then OnePlus Nord 2 5G is a better option but if you’re not into photography and you will just post images on social media then POCO F3 GT is also a good option.

Winner: OnePlus Nord 2 5G

Performance: OnePlus Nord 2 Vs POCO F3 GT

OnePlus Nord 2 and POCO F3 GT are powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor. The POCO F3 GT is running on MIUI 12.5-based on Android 11 while OnePlus Nord 2 is running on Oxygen OS 11.3-based on Android 11.

The POCO F3 GT comes with Physical pop-up gaming triggers while OnePlus Nord 2 doesn’t have that.

Here you have to decide, whether you like Oxygen OS or MIUI because performance will be almost the same on both phones.

One Thing to Note, POCO F3 GT is a gaming smartphone. So if you wanted a gaming smartphone under Rs 30,000 then I would suggest you skip OnePlus Nord 2 but if you want a balanced smartphone, you can take look at Nord 2.

Winner: Tie

5G Bands

OnePlus Nord 2 comes with Seven 5G bands while POCO F3 GT has only two 5G bands.

If you ask me, I would go with POCO F3 GT because I have wanted to buy a gaming phone for a long time, so this is the best time. I can live with MIUI and decent cameras.

Also, Oxygen OS is merging with Color OS, today or later, OnePlus Phones will also have ads like Xiaomi and RealMe Phones.
