Anonymous, 07 Aug 2020A51 is garbage compared to the Nord. If you want to wait 10 sec to open the YouTube app, go for it.I'm very pro of what are you saying and that guy also said : "has better screen that the Nord and it's more battery efficient", well, well, well ....... bad 4u cause oxygen OS is wayy better than One UI

And google already proved it that they don't need a better processor or camera sensor to get great phones out of their device. A phone having 12mp or 48mp or 64mp has nothing to do with gcam mode being able to produce better results. Coz it's simply google's own software with having a department full of people working on it. The 1st developer BSG who ported this gcam for his own mi 8 having almost same 12mp camera couldn't get the same results coz that is not possible. Gcam also need alot of system file,libs to perform on a device which no other manufacturer could have as google develops that os for it's own devices. In real life performance both 730g and 765g neck and neck. 765g just has and 5g modem. Google didn't put it inside 4a coz they wants to earn more money and as it's rumored that pixel 5 will also have 765g chip so their is no point for them to put it inside 4a.

Majority of people look for an allrounder phone at a pocket friendly price. Not having an 3.5mm jack doesn't make this phone any less than a phone having 3.5mm jack at the same price.

In short, to my belief, the Graphics processor of 765G falls short. Quality of the R & D team of the manufacturer decides the quality of the product.
There is nothing called the best product. Everything in this world has some drawbacks. If you want only the best, you can't be happy at any point of time. We have to adapt. There is no other go.
There always seems to be a dealbreaker with phones these days.
Nord looked great on paper. Nice design, flat OLED display, 90hz refresh, OxygenOS...
Only the design is plastic down the sides and structurally compromised. The display also has issues with discoloration at low brightness (like the other recent OP phones). Sorry but that's not good enough.
Oh well. My search continues.

If Pixel 4a's camera can perform well with a 730G SOC, why not can it do the same with a 765G SOC? I hope, you know that Google's older product design of Pixel 4a was to use 765G SOC. Why did they change that? Please don't say that 730G SOC is cheaper than 765G SOC because huge reputed manufacturers don't make compromises for want of silly profits. Every processor has an inbuilt image processor (camera processor in layman's terms) which assumes full responsibility in determining the quality of images taken from the device's camera. Camera software just assists and enhances the quality of photographs taken. The camera itself is just a tool. Quality of work depends on the quality of tools. Hence, a good camera, good hardware (Image processor) and good software (Camera software) are all required for a good photograph. Google's GCam software alone can't perform in isolation. In other words, GCam can assist only good processors installed with a good cameras. If Nord had chosen a simple 12MP camera like Google, we would've got the opportunity to use a good GCam Mod software. Even though there is a possibility of GCam Mod for the present Nord's camera, it will not be as good as a Mod done for a 12 MP camera. Hence, to my belief 730G is the winner.
Mandud, 05 Aug 2020I think I will buy 7 Pro onstead of NordPro (for having the Nord): the 765G is more efficient than the 855;
Con (for having the Nord): the 855 is quite a lot more powerful;
Pro : will have one or even two years of updates more than the 1+7;
Con : no jack . no wireless charging and a bit worse cameras;
Pro : Has 5G;
Con : the frame is plastic;
Pro : NO ANNOYING POP-UP THAT MAKES YOUR PHONE WAYY MORE FRAGILE;
Con : has worse ultrawide and no telephoto;
Pro : dual front cameras and they are higher res.;
Con : worse display resolution;
Pro : less expensive;
Equal : 90HZ AMOLED WITH SAME 30W WARP CHARGING AND NO BLOATWARE , GREAT :-)

Subramanian CN, 06 Aug 2020Please check for yourself and enlighten me as to whether Pixel 4a has this secondary chip.Nope it doesn't have the other chip. That's a visual core which google uses on flagship models. They don't use it on " a series" .

To everyone complaining about the headphone jack, I got the USB-C to 3.5mm adapter from their website for just 7EUR, stuck the adapter into my headphones and problem solved. Seriously it's not that big of a deal. Yeah i can't charge my phone and listen to music at the same time but I never did that on my previous phone anyway, and that one had a jack. I'm not saying it's cool, or that they couldn't just fit that tiny piece in there if they really wanted to. Ofc they could. They're removing the jack because that's where the trend is going. I'm just saying that there's an easy and cheap fix that basically turns my Jack headphones into USB-C ones. Plastic frame? Sure, but the Samsung A51 has a plastic frame AND a plastic back, and nobody's questioning its structural integrity. That phone costs as much as the Nord where I live btw, and the difference in performance and build quality is huge.

Ro86, 07 Aug 2020Should i buy Oneplus Nord or the Honor 20?
I'm stuck between these two phones.The Honor 20 is the same device as the Huawei Nova 5T.
It's really fast for the price (When it comes to CPU performance, Kirin 980 is about 5.45% faster than the Snapdragon 765G), but considering it's a year old device now, it's less future proof than the Nord. Comes with only Android 9, no mention of upgradability to 10 unlike the Nova 5T. It only has a 60 Hz screen compared to the 90 Hz of the Nord. Lacks 5G support, which the Nord has. Only has az IPS screen compared to the Fluid AMOLED of the Nord. Has a smaller battery than the Nord. OnePlus promises 2 years of software updates, which often becomes more than that considering the 5 and 6 series also upgraded to Android 10. Oxygen OS is probably the best Android skin around, even if I have no problems with EMUI/MAGIC UI.
So the Nord takes the crown easily, even if it is a bit slower in CPU speed.
