OnePlus 8 Pro destroys the OnePlus Nord in camera comparison


There’s no denying that the OnePlus Nord is one of the most important smartphones to be released in the second half of 2020. While it isn’t a flagship smartphone, the OnePlus Nord offers incredible value with the perfect balance of performance, design and camera capabilities.

After pitting the OnePlus Nord versus the Pixel 4 in a camera shootout, we took the Nord up to see if it could keep up with the OnePlus 8 Pro – a flagship device that offers quite an impressive camera setup.

Both phones have a quad-camera setup on the back, but the Oneplus 8 Pro has a much better sensor for its ultrawide camera and a dedicated telephoto camera while the Nord only offers digital zoom. Where the Nord seems to have the advantage is with its duals-selfie cameras which includes an ultrawide for capturing more friends or a wider view of your background in your shots.

Take a look at the video and gallery below to see how the camera on each of these devices handle a variety of different lighting conditions.

At the end of the day, the OnePlus Nord simply can’t keep up with the OnePlus 8 Pro’s superior camera hardware. The Nord’s images aren’t bad, but it’s clear that the Nord’s budget-friendly price point has a dramatic impact on the image quality that its cameras are able to deliver.

That being said, we’ll be doing additional camera comparison between the Oneplus Nord and a handful of mid-range devices to see how the phone stacks up when taking on devices within its category.
