In 2020, we saw the release of high-end 5G-enabled smartphones with prices ranging from PHP 40,000 to PHP 100,000 and more. In 2021, as predicted by the tech-blogging community, we will see more budget-friendly Android handsets with this connectivity feature -- and the OnePlus Nord N10 5G is obviously one of the first of these new models.

Apart from 5G connectivity support, though, this handset has many other notable features that will definitely delight midrange Pinoy consumers who are planning to upgrade from their entry-level Android smartphone to something more powerful this 2021.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G sports a very large 6.49-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD panel with ultra-thin bezels and a small punch hole in the upper left corner housing the front-cam. Perfect for watching videos, playing games, viewing vlogs, and reading blogs, this screen also supports 90Hz refresh rate for smooth screen transitions, buttery frame-rates when playing popular gaming titles, and more pronounced touch responsiveness.

Budding mobile photographers will also surely enjoy using the phone's powerful Quad Rear Camera module that's made up of a 64MP f/1.8 main camera which is the best of the bunch for low light and everyday point-and-shoot photography, 8 MegaPixel f/2.3 ultra-wide secondary shooter for getting everyone in the shot and for capturing landscape images, a 2 MegaPixel snapper for close-up photos of insects, plants, and intricate details, and finally, a 2 MegaPixel depth sensor enabling Portrait Mode that adds luscious background blur your photos of people and other subjects.

Vloggers and Youtube Content Creators can also make the most of OnePlus Nord N10 5G's 4K 30 fps rear video recorder that can also shoot 1080p clips at 30,60, and 120fps. For those who prefer using the front camera for talking-head vlogs, that one can record FullHD 30 and 60fps videos.

Speaking of the front-cam, you can use it to take 16 MegaPixel selfies that are instantly ready for sharing on social media -- thanks to OnePlus' own beautification software.

Concerned about power? Under the hood, OnePlus Nord N10 5G runs its Oxygen OS 10.5 customized Android 10 operating system with an 8nm 2GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G processor. This chipset - with an embedded Adreno 619L GPU - is fairly new from Qualcomm but matched with 6GB of RAM and 129GB UFS 2.1 internal storage, it's good enough to give this smartphone model an Antutu Benchmark Score in the area of 279,500, which means that it's more than capable of delivery very smooth overall mobile experience, even when playing resource-intensive games.

How about battery and charging speed? OnePlus Nord N10 5G is powered by a large 4,200 mAh Li-Po pack that supports 30W fast charging. Suffice it to say, this handset can easily give you a whole day of uptime with regular use but what's great is that you can also charge it up quickly if you're the type who's always on the go.

For security and privacy, the handset supports your familiar pattern and passcode unlock features and it also comes with Facial Recognition and a Rear-Mounted Fingerprint Scanner. Together, these provide a veritable layer of protection for the user.

Now, as for the design, OnePlus Nord N10 5G is hardly the most handsome phone out there but I'm sure many will appreciate its no-non-sense look. The face is protected by scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 3 and the back is made of polycarbonate. The camera module is a rectangle with rounded corners and is placed in the upper left corner of the rear; We've seen that look before on 2020 phones by other brands. Finally, there's only one colorway available named Midnight Ice, which is more like Matte Black.

So do I recommend OnePlus Nord N10 5G? Honestly, I have yet to try it out and I hope I can eventually review it. But based on my experience with OnePlus smartphones and given the feature-set plus the discounted price of this model, I think I'm inclined to give this my two-thumbs up. For me, this should be right near the top of your list if PHP 15,000 is the maximum you can spend on a new smartphone.
