OnePlus Nord 3 Smartphone Review: Near-flagship experience that doesn't break the bank

Putting the oomph back in the mid-range. The OnePlus Nord 3 brings some much-needed pizzazz in the hotly contested sub-₹35,000 (sub-€500) Android smartphone market. While the Dimensity 9000-powered Nord 3 is a substantial upgrade over the Nord 2 in almost all aspects, the smartphone has several glaring shortcomings as well.
OnePlus Nord 3 in review

The OnePlus Nord 3 5G joins a slew of new releases from the company this year, including the OnePlus 11, 11R, OnePlus Pad, and the Nord CE 3 Lite

Our OnePlus Nord 3 unit is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC and features a generous 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM together with 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage encased in a Misty Green back panel. This configuration will set you back by ₹37,999 (US$463), while the base 8 GB/128 GB variant costs ₹33,999 (US$414).

In Europe, OnePlus is offering the Nord 3 starting at €449 for the 8 GB/128 GB version while charging €549 for the 16 GB/256 GB tier. Early bird buyers in Europe can get the Nord 3 16 GB/256 GB variant at a discounted price of €499 till July 31.

In this review, we evaluate whether the OnePlus Nord 3 has what it takes to truly stand out amidst the fiercely competitive mid-range Android smartphone market.

Case: IP54-rated construction feels great in hand

Distinguishing the Nord 3 5G from the Nord CE 3 Lite can be challenging at first glance. OnePlus presents the Nord 3 in two color choices: a glossy Misty Green (our unit) and Tempest Gray with a matte finish.

The Nord 3 incorporates Dragontrail glass to protect the screen together with a pre-applied screen protector. The back panel uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone (sans the protective case) fell several times onto a tiled floor from desk height and survived without any scratches or visible signs of damage.

The glossy back panel of the Nord 3 makes it susceptible to fingerprints. The smartphone continues to sport a matte plastic frame like its predecessors, the Nord 2 and Nord 2T, but it still exudes a premium feel.

With an IP54 rating, the Nord 3 offers limited resistance against dust and water. The absence of sharp corners contributes to a comfortable grip and, despite weighing around 194 g, the phone feels lightweight due to its well-balanced weight distribution.

Overall, the Nord 3 exhibits solid build quality, providing a pleasant tactile experience and remaining sturdy even when subjected to significant pressure.

Hardware: Alert slider and IR blaster on board

The Nord 3 5G inherits some of OnePlus' notable features and idiosyncrasies. On the positive side, it incorporates the signature alert slider positioned on the right side of the frame, just above the power button.

At the top of the device, you'll find an IR blaster, along with a microphone and a speaker vent. On the left side, there is a volume rocker.

Moving towards the bottom, you'll come across the speaker grill and a USB Type-C port. The port only operates at USB 2.0 speeds internally, but it does support OTG (On-The-Go) functionality.

The microphone is positioned adjacent to the SIM tray at the bottom, so caution is advised to avoid mistakenly inserting the ejector tool into the wrong hole.

Unfortunately, the Nord 3 lacks the option for microSD storage expansion, which could have been a valuable addition at this price point.

Software: Oxygen OS 13.1 with three major Android updates

The Nord 3 5G comes with Oxygen OS 13.1 out-of-the-box. The latest OTA update at the time of publication comes bundled with security patches for June 2023. OnePlus is promising three years of Android OS updates and four years of security updates.

Although derived from ColorOS, Oxygen OS 13.1 is nearly devoid of bloatware and feels quite light in day-to-day use. Pre-installed applications are kept to a minimum, featuring the customary OnePlus apps, along with popular services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Spotify.

It is worth noting that OnePlus has yet to address the persistent issue of maintaining a consistent 120 Hz refresh rate in the operating system. For instance, opening any Google app, including the Play Store, drops the refresh rate to 90 Hz, while performing tasks such as photo editing further reduces it to 60 Hz.

Nevertheless, the transitions between refresh rates occur seamlessly without any perceivable delays or disruptions. The Nord 3 is also Widevine L1-certified, enabling high-resolution DRM video streaming.

Communication and GNSS: Fast Wi-Fi 6 and accurate navigation

The Dimensity 9000 SoC offers excellent Wi-Fi 6 networking that is way ahead of the competition. Wi-Fi throughput seemed reasonably stable at a distance of 1 m from our reference Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 router in a clear line of sight.

The Nord 3 supports GPS (L1), BDS (B1, B1C), GLONASS, GALILEO (E1), QZSS (L1), and NavIC (L1) satellite constellations for navigation.

The smartphone has some trouble in quickly latching onto a GNSS signal indoors, but outdoor reception is very good.

GPS tracking is fairly accurate in comparison with an Apple iPhone 14 Pro, though we do see both devices showing navigation through buildings in certain places.

Telephony and Voice quality: Calls not loud enough

While the Nord 3 lacks eSIM support, it does offer the convenience of utilizing two physical nano SIM cards. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi calling are fully supported.

We did not encounter any reception issues during our testing on the AirTel 5G network. However, we noticed that the call volume seemed lower than expected even at the highest setting. The loudness of the speakerphone also seemed inadequate, which can be frustrating when trying to communicate in a noisy environment.

Google Phone is the default call and contacts management app. The app permits call recording in the Indian variant, but all parties involved in the call are informed before the recording commences.

The Nord 3 lacks the extensive LTE and 5G sub-6 GHz band support found in the OnePlus 11, but most common global cellular bands are covered.

The 16 MP selfie camera takes good selfies in proper lighting conditions. Skin tones and finer facial details are well-reproduced. Portrait results are generally satisfactory, although the bokeh effect could be more pronounced. Videos from the front-facing camera are capped at 1080p 30 fps.

Even without the Hasselblad branding, the Nord 3's 50 MP Sony IMX890 primary camera produces results that are quite similar to that of the OnePlus 11. Details are nicely represented with good color saturation. Noise isn't very noticeable unless viewed at 100% crop.

Unlike the Apple iPhone 14 Pro, the Nord 3 is able to preserve a good amount of detail in shadows as well. The main camera performs 12.5 MP pixel binning by default, but you also get the option to shoot in 50 MP directly.

In normal mode, the camera is capable of doing a 2x optical zoom. The zoomed photos are serviceable for regular use with decent color reproduction and clarity. However, we observe that the camera finds it difficult to resolve some of the finer details, such as on the wall behind the car in the photo below.

In addition to the primary camera, the 8 MP Sony IMX355 ultra-wide camera on the Nord 3 also delivers good results. However, the colors appear slightly muted compared to the main camera. OnePlus has reduced the ultra-wide angle from 120° in the Nord 2 to 112° in the Nord 3 apparently to minimize lens distortion. 

In the photos below, both the Nord 3 and OnePlus 11 exhibit color fringing at the edges of the buildings. This is not the case with the iPhone 14 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The main camera and ultra-wide automatically switch to Night mode in low light with no way to turn this off. However, night mode needs to be manually activated when using the 2x zoom mode.

Low light photos come out surprisingly well on the Nord 3 with low noise and good resolution of details such as the teddy bear's fur and text on its shirt.

The main camera supports video recording up to 4K 60 fps, but EIS is only available in 1080p settings.

Macro shots turn out to be unusable
Macro shots turn out to be unusable

Unfortunately, the macro sensor on the Nord 3 falls short in terms of performance. It utilizes the GalaxyCore GC02M1 sensor, which was originally used as a depth sensor in the Nord 2 but has now been repurposed as a macro lens.

The images captured with the macro sensor suffer from significant noise and lack of detail. The color reproduction can be a hit or miss, depending on the scene. OnePlus seems to have included this camera just check off an item in the spec sheet with no tangible benefit to the end user.

Indian variants of the Nord 3 5G come with an 80 W SuperVOOC charger, a USB Type-A to Type-C cable, a phone case, pre-applied screen protector, SIM tray ejector, and the usual paperwork. The box also includes a welcome letter, brand sticker, and a Red Cable Club membership card.

European variants of the Nord 3 also offer a similar set of accessories, excluding the phone case and the Red Cable Club membership.

OnePlus offers a standard one-year warranty for the Nord 3 5G in India. The company also offers several addon protection plans including:

  • 12-month warranty extension for ₹799
  • 24 months OnePlus Care including 12 months of additional warranty for ₹4,499
  • 12-month Accidental Damage Protection Plan for ₹3,299
  • 12-month Screen Protection Plan for ₹2,399

Input Devices and Operation: Fast under-display fingerprint sensor

In day-to-day use, the Nord 3 performs smoothly and efficiently. Inputs are promptly recognized without any noticeable delays. OnePlus has incorporated Oppo's O-Haptics feature, which enables users to customize and fine-tune the haptic feedback according to their preferences.

For biometric authentication, the Nord 3 features a fast and responsive optical fingerprint reader. Users also have the option to set up a less secure 2D face unlock for convenience.

The Nord 3's 6.74-inch Fluid AMOLED display features a 1240 x 2772 resolution, 450 ppi pixel density, and a 40 Hz to 120 Hz dynamic refresh rate. We never encountered the 40 Hz refresh rate, even in idle.

Together with the thin bezels, support for 10-bit HDR10+, and a touch response rate of up to 1000 Hz, the Nord 3's display makes for a very good viewing and interaction experience.

We measured a good 91% brightness distribution and luminance values not too far from the rated 500 nits when manually set to the highest brightness level. According to OnePlus, the Nord 3's screen is capable of achieving a peak brightness of 1,450 nits and supports 8,192 brightness levels.

We were able to measure a peak brightness of 1,023 nits when subjecting the sensor to intense illumination.

OnePlus offers several display modes to choose from including Vivid, Natural, Cinematic, and Brilliant.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
12.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.6 ms rise
↘ 1.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 26 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.93 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.43 ms rise
↘ 0.5 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 366.58 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 366.58 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 366.58 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18732 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The Nord 3's display seems to be having trouble in attaining a full rise in the first pulse in the 100% white to 100% black transition. The 50% grey to 80% grey response times are particularly fast.

OnePlus does not offer a DC Dimming mode for the phone. We observed PWM at all brightness levels as shown below.

0% brightness: 243.15 Hz
0% brightness: 243.15 Hz
25% brightness: 366.13 Hz
25% brightness: 366.13 Hz
50% brightness: 370.13 Hz
50% brightness: 370.13 Hz
75% brightness: 367.79 Hz
75% brightness: 367.79 Hz
100% brightness: 366.58 Hz
100% brightness: 366.58 Hz

Refer to our primer, "Why PWM is such a headache" and also our PWM Ranking table for more information on PWM and comparisons across tested devices.

The Nord 3 offers a satisfying outdoor viewing experience, even in bright sunlight, as the Auto mode is capable of increasing the brightness to appropriate levels.

When it comes to viewing angles, the display maintains stability, with minimal loss of brightness and color information observed only at the extreme angles.

Performance: Dimensity 9000 impresses in High Perf mode

OnePlus artificially limits SoC performance by default. Therefore, we used the High Performance mode for all benchmarks and measurements except for battery tests. Comparatively, the normal mode results in 30% and 25% lower Geekbench 5.4 single and multi-core scores, respectively.

Despite being a couple of years old, the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC is being seen only in recent launches. In CPU benchmarks, the Dimensity 9000 performs impressively, surpassing all other smartphones in this segment by a significant margin in cumulative CPU tests.

The A15 Bionic chip found in the Apple iPhone SE 2022 still maintains a raw power advantage, leading the Dimensity 9000 by as much as 44% in Geekbench 5.4 single-core tests.

However, the Nord 3 manages to narrow the performance delta in Geekbench 5.4 multi-core and CrossMark tests.

Check out our MediaTek Dimensity 9000 page for more information and performance comparisons.

The Dimensity 9000's 10-core Mali-G710 MP10 is within striking distance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1's Adreno 730 in the Motorola Edge 30 Pro.

This GPU also outperforms the 5-core A15 GPU in the iPhone SE 2022 by a tangible 9% margin in overall GPU tests.

Unfortunately, onscreen GFXBench tests top out at 60 fps. This is a limitation of Oxygen OS and is also reflected in gaming benchmarks as we'll see shortly.
