Anyway, let’s take a look at the specs.
The N10 5G comes packing a 6.5-inch LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 1080×2400 resolution. However, the fact that the N10 5G comes with an LCD display, rather than an OLED (like the Pixel 4a), is a shame. It won’t be as sharp nor as bright.
However, like the Pixel 4a, the N10 5G comes with a plastic frame to help keep cost and weight down. Sadly, the phone still manages to be on the heavy side at 190g — the Pixel 4a 5G and iPhone SE both weigh significantly less (although they do have smaller screens).
The N10 5G also loses out to the Pixel 4a 5G and iPhone SE when it comes to performance. While the OnePlus phone packs a Snapdragon 690 processor, the Google phone comes with the faster Snapdragon 765G chip. The iPhone SE blows them both out of the water, though, with its A13 Bionic chip.
When it comes to cameras, the N10 5G has four rear-facing lenses, including a 64Mp main sensor. However, we’d be pretty surprised if the OnePlus phone can get anywhere near the picture quality of the Pixel 4a. It seems even less likely that the OnePlus could challenge the iPhone when it comes to video, to boot.
However, the N10 5G claws one back when it comes to charging speeds. The Google and Apple phones both manage 18W charging while the N10 5G comes with mega fast 30W charging.
While the N10 5G looks good in isolation, compared to the Pixel 4a 5G and iPhone SE it becomes clear that OnePlus hasn’t really done much to push the cheap phone game forward.
