  1. From my view, Oneplus Nord CE 2 lite is a budget phone with average specs and they all resemble Redmi note 11 pro. This is the most affordable OnePlus phone and is a good one compared to other phones at this price! The display is LCD is the only drawback because the Redmi Note 11 pro and plus comes with an AMOLED display and some brands give LED screens. The 120Hz display is a good one with an advanced LCD panel it will be smooth to use. The 5000 mAh battery is great and can withstand more than 1&half days so it is a plus! Snapdragon 695 5G gives a good performance too it is not bad because it is a new chip which is enhanced to do more than the previous 600 series! 5G is available in this phone and this much is enough for a budget phone! OnePlus included an sd card slot which is useful for extended storage. There is a macro lens included which is not even on the OP10 Pro and it is a plus for this phone and fingerprint is side-mounted and is also good for security! As the back of the phone looking not that good I will apply skins from Gadgetshieldz to make it look good or a case from Spigen!
