Nokia G60 5G vs OnePlus Nord 2T vs Nothing Phone 1: Verdict

Based on the on-paper specs, the Nokia G60 5G does not seem to offer the best value for your money against the two phones it was compared with. The phone’s SoC is the weakest of the three and can be found in sub-Rs 20,000 smartphones. It also offers a single 6GB RAM option, which is the lowest in this comparison. The USP of the phone is its clean, stock Android experience with assured software support for three years.

The Phone 1 is the most unique in terms of design. Therefore, if you want a phone that stands apart from the sea of sameness, Phone 1 could be your pick. It also packs capable hardware and a good promise of software support, but the price is slightly on the higher side. 

The Nord 2T 5G, although with incremental upgrades over its predecessor, offers good value. The phone is also the most compact of the three devices. It offers a good mix of capable hardware along with the feature-rich Oxygen OS software experience. That being said, OnePlus, of late, has not provided the best experience when it comes to software rollout. Otherwise, the Nord 2T is a good buy for its price.
