OnePlus is well-known for the quality of its smartphone packaging. The OnePlus Nord 2 is not an exception to this rule. Despite the fact that it is billed as a mid-range device, it comes in high-end packaging.
You get that signature high-quality USB Type C cable in red, the 65W Warp Charge wall charger, a free high-quality transparent case, reading materials, and the Nord 2.

OnePlus Nord 2 Price (Philippines)
It is currently priced at P21,990. Available colors are Green Wood, Blue Waze, Gray Sierra. The only available for the Philippines right now is the 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM. You can have the 12GB RAM + 256 ROM for the price of P25,990 but it is currently sold out.
Just like the competition, the OnePlus Nord 2 has all the security features. But the smartphone is performing more accurately and flawlessly. I speak about the in-display and even the face unlock feature of the fingerprint scanner. Both features are flawless.
Aimed at helping you decide that the P22k price point is a well-deserved tag price. The smartphone has a premium appearance. In addition, on top of the power button, the dedicated silent button is placed. That’s a nice feature when you want to quickly turn your phone into silent mode.
To warp this initial impression blog post, I’d like to say that the OnePlus Nord 2 looks expensive than it is.
