Xiaomi Poco F3 GT vs OnePlus Nord 2 5G

Xiaomi recently came up with another amazing flagship killer for the global market and so did OnePlus. We are talking about POCO F3 GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G: two amazing devices powered by the most powerful MediaTek mobile platform sold at an affordable price. If you are searching for a flagship killer suitable for your best gaming sessions, these two devices are probably among the best options for your needs. But which is the best and which you should go for? This specs comparison between POCO F3 GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G will give you an idea.

POCO F3 GT vs OnePlus Nord 2 5G


If you are a gamer and you prefer a gaming-centric design as well as gaming-centric features, there is no doubt about the fact that you should go for the POCO F3 GT. Alongside an aggressive design, it offers the physical maglev triggers which are able to guarantee a better gaming experience at least in the most advanced games which require a lot of commands. The POCO F3 GT also comes with a wider and more comfortable display. With the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, instead, you get a more elegant design and a more compact body that fits better in a pocket. So you should go for the OnePlus Nord 2 5G if you are a more casual user. Both the phone comes with a plastic frame and a glass back protected by Gorilla Glass 5, but the POCO F3 GT adds the IP53 certification which makes it dust resistant and splash resistant.


Are you looking for a superior display? If so, choose the POCO F3 GT. Its OLED display is able to show up to one billion colors and it comes with a higher 120 Hz refresh rate, as well as the HDR10+ certification which improves the image quality on the streaming platforms. Last but not least, it has a wider diagonal of 6.67 inches. Given that OnePlus Nord 2 5G has a smaller display it is also more compact, the panel is still an AMOLED but it is inferior with its lower 90 Hz refresh rate and 16M colors. An advantage is the presence of an in-display fingerprint scanner, while it is side-mounted on its rival.

Specs & Software

POCO F3 GT and OnePlus Nord 2 5G are powered by the Dimensity 1200 mobile platform which is currently the best SoC by MediaTek, so it offers the same flagship-class level of performance. Note that OnePlus Nord 2 5G has a slightly more advanced variant of the Dimensity 1200 which is called Dimensity 1200-AI. This version offers higher performance with AI tasks. Further, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G has more RAM: up to 12 GB instead of the 8 gigs offered by the POCO F3 GT. Despite POCO F3 GT is a gaming-centric phone, the OnePlus Nord 2 5G wins the hardware comparison. Both the phones run Android 11 with a highly customized user interface on top.



The OnePlus Nord 2 5G is equipped with a better camera department and it can be considered as a good camera phone. It has a 50 MP main sensor (the Sony IMX766) with OIS, an 8 MP ultrawide camera, and a 2 MP monochromatic sensor, as well as a great 32 MP front camera. Unfortunately, the POCO F3 GT is not a high-end camera phone due to its midrange 64 MP main sensor paired with an 8 MP ultrawide camera and a 2 MP macro lens.


The POCO F3 GT sports a bigger battery with a capacity of 5065 mAh and the support of 67W fast charging. It has a longer battery life, but OnePlus Nord 2 5G is not disappointing with its 4500 mAh battery and 65W fast charging.


OnePlus Nord 2 5G is priced at €399/$470 globally (EU), while POCO F3 GT starts from €310/$365 in India and is not sold in other markets (at least for now). There is not a definitive winner for this comparison: POCO F3 GT has a better display, the IP53 certification, physical trigger, and a bigger battery, so it is definitely a better phone for gaming. With the OnePlus Nord 2 5G, you can get a superior camera department, a more compact body, and slightly better hardware.
