Let’s start with a gorgeously graphic racing game like Asphalt 9: Legend that can turn on high graphics too. Which we tried for about 20 minutes, each field with a lot of objects and effects. It does not cause problems for this model. very comfortable to play
Later with PUBG Mobile, some FPS games, where we can turn on graphics in HD and high frame rates. (Higher-level graphics, of course, but wait for more updates in the future), which we tested in 100-player mode, it played smoothly. The touch screen is very good, responds quickly and does not show any lag at all.
Later, with a popular game like ROV, we can open almost everything to the maximum. Excludes impressions that are opened at a high level. when you go in and try to play The frame rate ran very steady, around 59-60fps most of the game, plus a lot of effects in the middle of the lane. It can be done perfectly.
And finally, the game to defeat the master Genshin Impact with very heavy graphics. But we tried to set the graphics at the highest level. OnePlus Nord CE 5G performed very well than expected. Can play as smoothly as using the Snapdragon 750G, with the touch screen still as good as the game above. But the heat is higher than other games as well, but it’s normal.

It can also be used for both the main lens and the Ultra-Wide Angle lens.

In the front camera, there is a resolution of up to 16 million pixels. The selfie line must definitely like it. Beauty can be adjusted up to 3 levels, and if you want to shoot backlit, don’t be afraid because it supports the UltraShot HDR feature like the rear camera.
Portrait front camera is beautiful and natural.
From what I said, the beauty in the front camera can be adjusted in 3 levels, making the face beautiful. Plus, in person mode, the background is melted, adding dimensions for us to stand out even more.

But it comes at a price that is easier to tangible than before. In particular, the strength of the Snapdragon 750G CPU is done very well. The heat is almost nonexistent if you haven’t played the game for several hours. Or anyone who uses it in general would not have to worry at all. Importantly, the battery is considered to be very durable. charge once in the morning Stay up until the evening and there is also Warp Charge 30T Plus that can be charged quickly.
