OnePlus Nord VS iPhone 11 – Which is BETTER?

published on August 3, 2020

So from yesterday's unboxing it's confirmed this colorway is closest to the dave 2d teal obviously i should have thought of that myself but you guys nailed it on the head with that one hey guys what's up it's carl here back with another episode and

Comparing the brand new oneplus nord and we're facing it off against an iphone and the reason why i chose the iphone 11 i initially was gonna do it against the iphone se the second version for

Around that 500 price point but when i started that comparison i couldn't get over how tiny this display was it just feels like a device from five six years ago and the comparison didn't really seem

Fair so that's why i'm tossing that aside comparing it against the iphone 11 and i know these come in at very different price points the oneplus nord under 500 bucks and in

Yesterday's keynote they announced a special variant only available in india it only does come with six gigs of ram 64 gigs of storage but that value 350 bucks that's half the price

Of an iphone 11 which starts at 700 but i get that people love their iphones you have to pay a bit more for that apple tax but here is the comparison of two devices that i think a lot of people

Will be looking at the oneplus nord against the iphone 11 and if we start off with the thing that i mentioned first which is price point we'll get that out of the way we are in two different leagues here the

Version that i have here this has 12 gigs of ram so it's the top spec you're looking at around that 500 price point which i honestly think is still great like i mentioned the iphone 11 you'll start off at 699

So 700 and you'll only get 64 gigs of storage i'll let you guys decide if price is the deciding factor design-wise they both feel great in the hand and they actually

Feel a bit more similar than i initially thought the oneplus nord does have rounded edges around the outside and of course the iphone this design also hasn't changed in the past decade almost

Funnily enough the colorways on the back of the devices are kind of matching the blue marble over on the nord is their flagship or their promo colorway the iphone offers a few more color ways this is

Personally my favorite of the bunch for the 11 and when you flip to the front this is where the biggest differences between these devices are it's on the display the iphone is just

Straight updated it's old we've got a notch the size of mount everest the bezels are painstakingly large and we only sadly have a 60 hertz display i think it's the only flagship

That has lagged behind on the display aspect the oneplus nord did have to make a couple compromises to stay under that 500 price point but you can't see a notch anymore that's because we've got an

In display fingerprint sensor and the whole display literally goes edge to edge and the extra bonus they've still got a 90 hertz refresh rate that's the same as the oneplus 8 that we

Saw from last year and once you go the minimum of 90 going back to a 60 it's just a no-go i think a 90 hertz display has to be the bare minimum in 2020 of course we should expect to

See that from apple come this september with the iphone 12 and internally i know this is a bit harder to compare but if you're looking at this solely for the specs the iphone 11 a13

Bionic chip with four gigs of ram and if you can do your math correctly i know i struggle sometimes the oneplus nord has triple the amount of ram at 12 gigs so that's a huge

Difference mind you we're running two different operating systems of course ios is very optimized i would say both are still very quick and both do feel like flagship so anything that you

Throw out the devices they'll handle totally fine just to keep that in mind specs aren't necessarily everything and i think we'll see that with what's on the back with the camera and at first glance once

Again the oneplus nord it's got a quad camera setup and although the main camera on the nord is a 48 megapixel sensor it's an older sony imx 586 we've seen it over on the oneplus 8 and i would sum up the

Camera experience as just average sometimes it over saturates colors the dynamic range isn't really the best i think the biggest benefit for the nord is you have four different sensors to

Play around with so the ultra wide you've got a macro a telephoto and even the two sensors up front for your selfies the iphone 11 on the other hand only has two sensors 12 megapixels also from sony

But this is the strength of an iphone i find the camera systems on iphones are typically some of the best in the smartphone switching now onto battery-wise and of course i can sum that up in a couple

Words the oneplus nord is the clear winner here it also has the benefit of warp charge 30t we saw that last year from the oneplus 8 plus the eight pro you can quickly juice

Up your device in five to ten minutes and get another day's use whereas the iphone battery this is honestly where it sucks again you get the little small dongle in the box we're still using outdated lightning

So no usbc and who knows what happens with the next version of the iphone we might not even get a charging cable so you'll have to either use an old one or buy one for 30 40 bucks knowing apple and that is a straight up

Sham shame so yeah i think that's kind of these devices summed up in this video but i did want to chat about wireless earbud options as you know oneplus also came out with their own

Earbuds of course these are called the oneplus buds and these retail for around a hundred bucks so once again bringing some huge value and when you compare that to the price of say airpods which are around 200

That's again double the price these honestly don't sound too bad i wouldn't say they sound better than say airpod pros but against the og airpods i think the one plus buds give them a huge

Run for the money they don't have active noise cancelling maybe they don't look as sleek or as good but once again you're saving a hundred extra dollars on a pair of headphones you know bass is half decent they don't

Sound tinny i think oneplus will also sell a ton of these headphones but let me know your guys thoughts down below in the comments are you looking to save money i know

2020 right now it's a bit tougher i think people will really be focused on value or are you still team iphone team ios i know it's hard to get out of the ecosystem

But let me know which device you would pick and uh hope you guys enjoy this comparison i'll answer any other questions you have down below in the comments and let me know if there's any other

Device you want to see the oneplus nord compared to we'll catch the rest of you guys then peace
