OnePlus Nord vs iPhone Se 2020 vs Xiaomi Poco 2 Design
The OnePLus Nord has got a back glass in Blue Marble or Grey Onyx shades, with a camera block on the top left side, giving an appealing look of iPhone XR. Now, flip it over and you will find basically nothing but the screen is what designed the quality of OnePlus- the bezels are small but it isn’t bezel-less display and the dual-lens front-facing camera placed in a cut-out on the top-left corner.
The Xiaomi Poco X2 there has a Glass-Metal sandwich design with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. With its dual punch hole camera on the back, Xiaomi tried to bind its users with back & front gorilla glass 5 protection.
The iPhone SE (2020) meanwhile, has a glass back in black, white, or red, with a much smaller single-lens camera in the top left corner of the rear. The front has large bezels above and below the screen, with the front-facing camera housed in the upper bezel, and a home button (which doubles as a fingerprint scanner) in the lower one.
Both iPhone Se (2020) and Poco X2 together have less modern design than OnePlus Nord. However, it’s recently designed and launched with all the latest features and technologies. The Poco X2 is just 165.3mm x 76.6mm x 8.79mm and 208g, on the other hand, iPhone SE (2020) is just 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm and 148g, while the OnePlus Nord is 158.3 x 73.3 x 8.2mm and 184g. Apparently, the Nord is way bigger than iPhone SE and lightweight than Xiaomi Poco X2.
The main reason why OnePlus is popular among customers is its outstanding design & display quality. Also, the biggest competition between OnePlus Nord, iPhone SE, and Xiaomi Poco X2 is the display size & type.
The Nord’s display is a 1080 x 2400 Fluid AMOLED one with a pixel density of 408 pixels per inch, a 20:9 aspect ratio, and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The iPhone SE (2020) on the other hand has a 750 x 1334 IPS LCD screen with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a 60Hz refresh rate.
The Xiaomi Poco X2 meanwhile, has a 1080 x 2400 full HD+ with HDR10 playback and 120Hz refresh rate. 20:9 is perfectly designed to serve the needs of pro gamers.
So as well as being smaller it’s less crisp and likely to feel less smooth in operation, due to the lower refresh rate.
OnePlus Nord vs iPhone SE (2020) vs Xiaomi Poco X2: Camera Features
There is a notable difference between the camera of these three phones. Not least because you will get a whole more lens with the OnePlus Nord while iPhone SE will only have one and Poco X2 comes up with a total of 6 lenses front & back.
Starting with those rear lenses, there’s a 48MP f/1.75 main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), and that’s joined by an 8MP f/2.25 ultra-wide one, a 2MP f/2.4 macro one, and a 5MP f/2.4 depth one. On the front meanwhile, the OnePlus Nord has a 32MP f/2.45 main camera and an 8MP f./2.45 ultra-wide one.
The iPhone SE (2020) on the other hand has just a 12MP f/1.8 snapper with OIS on the back, and a 7MP f/2.2 camera on the front. And, Xiaomi Poco X2 meanwhile has a 64MP main camera with a 2MP depth sensor, 8MP ultrawide lens, and 2MP macro lens, which makes it deliver a quad-camera segment. On the other hand, you will get a 20+2MP dual punch hole camera with a primary sensor on the front.
Whole OnePlus Nord seems to lose its trail here compared to Xiaomi Poco X2, but OnePlus knows to serve the market differently, therefore, it will compare in practice.
