    I have been breaking my head whether or not to buy the new OnePlus Nord.

    CPU wise SD845 is almost equal to SD765G. But the SD845 GPU crushes SD765G. But on the other hand, Nord has better display and camera module.
    Overall, nord has a 2020 look and feels like an upgrade looks wise but some how the chipset worries me.

    What do you guys think, do I switch to Nord or stay with OnePlus 6?

    IMO dropping the 3.5mm Jack and fast fingerprint sensor is what gives me headaches too.
    Would like to "upgrade" for the cameras and the 90HZ but since my OP6 is still very good condition is hard to justify spending the money.

    Depending on how much you value the JACK and if you pre-ordered and choose the Buds as gift it might be worth. If you sell you OP6 you pay minor for new phone.

    Really depends too if your only in the market for budget phone or would be interested in flagships too.

    My OP6 seems to be deteriorating. I am experiencing major lags and the camera is getting slow.

    Loosing the 3.5mm jack doesn't hurt much since I already own a TWS now. I was hoping for a side mounted fingerprint, but the on-screen was disappointing to me too.

    The OP6 can be sold for about 15k in the buyback program and I can't afford the flagship phones rn.

    Are you using UltraCVM as camera app? if not i can recommend that. For sure doesn't get fast but way better quality.
    I wouldn't sell over the Buyback program, probably are only gonna get super small amount. Depending on if you want to do the hassle i would try ebay auction or try selling it privately.

    If you need a new phone, its definitely not a bad choice.

    I don't feel it as an upgrade. That's the problem. Chipset is not convincing enough :/ Waiting on nord's benchmark to see it's perform and compare it to OP6
