OnePlus Nord and OnePlus Nord: Conclusion

Mi 10i 5G Review
Winner: Mi 10i 5G

This is where things get tricky as you have to choose between Oxygen OS and MIUI. I know, everyone will choose Oxygen OS but to get that OS you have to pay six thousand more. In short, if you’re okay with MIUI then I would say, don’t think about OnePlus Nord but if you want clean UI and AMOLED display then OnePlus Nord is the best option for you.

Mi 10i 5G has a better camera then OnePlus Nord, build is same on both the phones, both have 5G support but OnePlus Nord has AMOLED display while Mi 10i 5G has LCD display.

Now let me tell, I been using AMOLED display for while and I can’t think about to use LCD display again because AMOLED screen is way better than LCD and that’s a fact. Now if you want an overall best smartphone and not just best screen then yes, Mi 10i 5G is a better option then OnePlus Nord.

What you will lose when you buy OnePlus Nord?

You will lose out on better cameras, 120Hz screen refresh rate, bigger battery, and six thousand rupee.

What you will lose when you buy Mi 10i 5G?

You will lose out on AMOLED display, Oxygen OS and you will save six thousand rupee.

That was it, I hope got your answer but if not then do let me know on the comment box below, I will love you out…
