Is Nord Good Buy Or Not
It is a brand new phone set in the market and too early to give a review on the same. In the weeks to come we can have a firmer opinion, but as of now it all depends on what we are looking for. This can be a perfect phone if you are a One Plus fan and liked the older version. Apart from the flagship, the phone has great Oxygen 5G support. The price is another factor because Nord comes cheaper than the previous model.
The phone is a good pick if you need something within the budget and has a great look. However we must wait for the reviews.
