Is the OnePlus Nord frame made of plastic or metal?

    Poco F2 Pro says hello!

    Poco is sub brand of Xiaomi. Even MIUI optimised for Poco contains bloatware and ads. They make money from that. But for OnePlus, the only source of income is from their products. Oxygen OS is a driving force for many OnePlus's fans. Oxygen OS is known for its BS free skin. In the light of above discussion, even the software matters as much as the hardware. So does the user experience. I think you should reconsider if you planning to buy Poco instead of OnePlus. Ultimately, it's the experience that matters. If you insist on having a better build quality, it's your wish.

    But don't regret after making a decision.

    Glass on front and back, and plastic in between those two glasses. Though it didn't feel like plastic when I held it l. until and unless you carefully hold it to feel every bit of that phone, you won't even realise it's plastic

    You said "you can't expect a metal body with great specs"...

    Poco F2 Pro has an all-metal body and superior Snapdragon 865 chipset.

    Software comes down to preference, and many users enjoy MIUI.

    those who enjoy MIUI are probably not going to be OnePlus, OxygenOS in particular, fans..

    and vice versa..

    That still doesn't justify a plastic frame.

    What's wrong in having a plastic frame. It has glass covering front and back. People cannot easily notice that it has a plastic frame.
    Be it plastic or metal, user experience doesn't change.
    So why do you complain about the frame.
    Clearly, frame has nothing to do with your experience. Although metal frame can provide better protection, it cannot provide better experience.

    Coming to software, Oxygen OS is arguably the best Android skin. That gives you a better experience although it cannot provide better protection.

    What do you prefer: Clean air or polluted air to breathe?

    Oxygen OS is BS free.
    MIUI has lot of bloatware and ads.

    If you're so fond of Poco why don't you join MI community instead of OnePlus community?

    That way you'll be happy with your purchase and have like minded people and forums.

    i was not justifying any "feature" or "non-feature".. i was trying to tell you that some people just dont care (plastic or metal frame), given nord's price-performance-ratio..

    obviously you do care, so theres no point to argue.. just difference in opinions..

    Based on Jerry rigs tear down video, it's coated, painted shiny. So the wear and tear on that is going to be interesting

    That's the spot you're wrong dude. Even after I got my 5T 3 years ago, my budget Redmi 2 prime still my primary phone for a week. Bypass the theme store and instal your own custom theme is the best part after rooting a MIUI phone.
