    This is a great phone for the price! The OS is pretty clean and the phone is quite fast. I’m writing this review to point out some important caveats:

    1. T-Mobile is the only carrier that fully supports this phone (5G and WiFi calling). AT&T only supports it at 4G and they don’t support WiFi calling on it. Verizon doesn’t support this phone at all.
    2. Many OnePlus phones, including this one, don’t properly support Google Voice integration with the native phone app when Android v12 is installed. All calls from the phone app will go out over the carrier pathway, regardless of what you’ve configured in the Google Voice app. This has apparently been an issue since January 2022 and OnePlus doesn’t appear to have any plans to fix it.

    If those issues don’t impact you, then this phone is a far better choice than similarly priced phones from Samsung and Motorola due to the performance, features, and security patch support.

    First off I would like to say I am really enjoying this phone. The upgrade to Android 12 came with some great features that my old “Android 12 Phone” didn’t have. The camera on this phone seems to get a bad rap in the reviews but it is prefectly adequate for day to day use. I’m not a professional and it certainly fills my needs and has a whole host of cool features you can toggle into and use. The display is crisp and the phone is fast and simply works well. The battery life is for every and will easily stand two days of use. I do not lock my phone so I can’t comment on the “facial recognition or finger print reader”. But the OS upgrade brought this great phone alive with some interesting features. The phone also has a magnetometer and accelerometer built in that I really love for a couple app’s I like.

    The only criticisim I would have for the phone is the ring tones and notification tones could be much louder. But for music or video the volumn is fine. I had called OnePlus about this and they said that I could download louder ring tones and I did this and it did make a difference but this is the very first phone that I didn’t have to modulate the ring tone and notification tones.

    But other then that tihs is a wonderful device.

    I have had a Moto Z Play on Republic Wireless for five years. In 2022, it was still supporting the basic stuff (calls, messages, music, navigation, videos, and browsing), and the battery was in good shape. But, they ended support for WiFi calling on this device. Now I am running the Nord N20 5G on Mint Mobile.
    It’s similar in size, has the same near-stock android interface, exceptional battery life, crisp AMOLED display, lag-free Snapdragon 6 Series Platform, adequate camera, and limited OS upgrade support. Obviously, the processor is faster (Geekbench score of 2000 vs 500), the screen is larger (6.4″ vs 5.5″) and slightly brighter (461-647 nits vs 371-526 nits), the camera is sharper (64 MP vs 16 MP), the connectivity is better (faster WiFi, more 4G bands, and even a few 5G bands), and the OS is more recent (android 11 and 12 vs android 7 and 8). It was also 35% less expensive than the old phone ($275 with tax vs $435). And the new MVNO carrier is less expensive.

    The phone comes with a 33 watt charger and a USB-A to USB-C connector. It does not includes a case or screen protector. There is a tiny bit of bloatware, but it’s easy to remove. The OxygenOS is easy to setup so that it feels like stock android. The finger print sensor and face unlock work very well. My only grip is that the WiFi sometimes connects to my slower 2.4 GHz channels instead of my 5 GHz channels. I actually have three 2.4 GHz channels and four 5 GHz channels in my house, and they all have the same SSID. Unlike my other phones, the OnePlus seems to only show a preference for the strongest signal. I may have to rename my 2.4 GHz SSIDs to prevent this.

    The most stressful thing I did on this phone was to install Google Home and cast the screen to a Chromecast connected to my computer monitor. The Chromecast is hard wired to my network and my phone was connected to a 5 GHz WiFi channel with a bandwidth of about 300 Mbs. The phone performed very well. While playing a youtube video via the Chrome browser, the video and audio were in sync on the monitor. While scrolling through my Google feed, there was hardly any lag on either the phone or monitor.

    I have been testing this phone, on and off, for over 12 hours with about 4 hours of screen on time. The battery is at 67%. This is consistent with a battery endurance rating of 129 hrs on gsmarena, which is better than all of the iPhones and Galaxy S Series phones. For reference, the iPhone 13 max pro is rated for 121 hrs, and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G comes in at 114 hrs. Of course those phone are twice as fast, have a brighter 120Hz display, and much nicer cameras. But they also cost four times as much, and are running a bunch of extra processes that support all kinds of extraordinary features.

    If you want a mid-range phone, I would highly recommend this phone over the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G or Google Pixel 6a, both of which are about 30% more expensive. The A53 has descent battery life and better cameras, but is laggy and loaded with bloatware. The Pixel 6a has better cameras and a faster processor, but has poor battery life, is buggy, and even overheats. These other two phones will get more android upgrades, but these upgrades will most likely result in future issues with the phones. The only alternative that I would recommend to this phone is the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, but only if you can get it new for $400.

    For under $250 (paid), this is a very impressive phone. AMOLED display and Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU to boot. The camera, as expected, is junk, but let’s be honest- you didn’t really expect a good camera at this price point. The phone is built really well and even looks high-end despite its plastic body. The only thing I wish it had was at least some level of water-resistance (there’s no IP rating).
    I was choosing between several Motorola models, including Stylus 5G and OnePlus N20 was a clear winner on paper because of OLED display. It also have very fast (33W) charging via USB PD. Seems Motorola has gone downhill in the last few years since its impressive G5 Plus released 4-5 years ago, and especially when it comes to OS updates- with only one major OS version update promised by the company. Granted, OnePlus has a similar policy and the N20 should only be updated to Android 12 (already updated), but the company allegedly promised Android 13 for N20, so only time will tell.
    I did debloat the Oxygen OS from all useless OnePlus crap, not to mention malware and spyware “packaged” with the phone. Adb is your friend here and rooting isn’t needed. Now I have an almost pure Android phone that looks good and performs well. Sorry, Motorola- you lost the cheap smartphone game to the Chinese…
