Communication and connections
The smartphone provides all connectivity options that should be found in a modern smartphone. The physical ports include USB-C and a headphone jack, as well as a hybrid slot for SIM and microSD cards. Inside, a set of modules is hidden, including Wi-Fi in the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standard, NFC and Bluetooth 5.1. Navigation supports all the most popular systems and, as far as we could test it, it was fast and accurate. Voice calls are made correctly - I heard and was heard loud and clear.
OnPlus Nord N10 5G should support 5G networks - it even has it in the name. And it was like that in the beginning, but there was an update that broke everything. After installing OxygenOS 10.5.8, this feature was gone. Previously, the smartphone cooperated, among others with a SIM card from Plus and it was 5G. After the update, there is no option to select the 5G network on this tab - the selection is limited to 2G/3G/4G (auto), and the maximum transfer speeds that the smartphone supports at the moment are LTE speeds. Users started reporting the problem on the manufacturer's official forum, so I hope that a fix will be released as soon as possible.
Memory and performance
The smartphone has enough gigabytes to satisfy most users. We have 128 GB of UFS 2.1 internal memory (104 GB after the first run), which can be expanded with a microSD card. Media with a maximum capacity of up to 512 GB are supported.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 is responsible for the performance - a mid-range model with medium performance. Every day, it can cope with all the tasks it is faced with - it works when surfing the Internet, downloading and running applications or using social media. During my work, I did not notice any slowdowns or lags. The smartphone also allows you to run popular games like Candy Drush, and even more demanding games (eg Asphalt 9 or Real Racing 3). And even then playing with Nord N10 5G, apart from the occasional drops in liquidity, is a positive experience. You just have to bear in mind the limitations of the processor, which was not prepared for games. I would like to add that even after longer gaming sessions, the smartphone becomes only slightly warm.
