OnePlus does have a dev seeding program they just don't publicize it. The Redmi K20 Pro is a great phone and I can't recommend against it. It already has proven it will have a thriving developer community. However, its official support won't last as long as the new Nord, so make of that what you will.



This should have all you're looking for: https://pastebin.com/raw/8fQeL7YM



Google Phone app does support call recording but not in all regions and not enabled on all device models. I live in the U.S. where it's not enabled, but I can't tell you about Europe or India.

Have you tried enabling it, simply by changing regional settings to India? Could you try?
That is the feature for me that i need to have, i recieve orders of customers by phone. And without a call recorder i will not buy any phone.

Thanks for the reply. K20 pro official support doesn't matter to me as I won't be using MIUI even in my dreams. :silly:
Btw, are they doing dev seeding specifically for nord ? They just sent 7 & 7T 'pro' devices to devs and left out the low priced regular versions previously. I suspected they won't be doing for nord because it's their budget range like regular 7/7T.

Hi XDA,

I've used the OnePlus Nord for nearly 3 weeks now and did a review of it for XDA: https://www.xda-developers.com/oneplus-nord-review/

If you have any questions about the device, ask them here and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

Question #1:
https://www.androidexplained.com/support-a-b-partition-slots/

can you tell me if OPN has this seamless update feature supported or not ?

Question #2:
just for a second lets forget google dialer app's call recording option (because if that announces everyone that i am recording then they will not say what i expected so it will be useless to me) and what other call recording app can record the call with both persons voice clearly without using loudspeaker or something else ?
https://www.boldbeast.com/android/call_recorder.html
i have been using this boldbeast app and its is the best and works without root so want to know about OPN also. please help me on these.

Question #3:

https://www.reddit.com/r/oneplus/comments/8m93fq/does_rooting_void_warranty/

does above mentioned warranty related reply is valid for OPN or not ?

Question #4:

https://www.amazon.in/OnePlus-Nord-Gray-128GB-Storage/product-reviews/B08695ZSP6/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_show_all_btm?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews

a customer review is saying that OPN does not support "google play services for AR" (proof attached for reference), can you please tell us what is the actual situation now?

Hey! I was looking into the camera features.
And apparently only K30 pro provides the usage of other lens in Pro mode. I mostly use pro mode / gcam for my photos.

Does Nord give you the same? In a video, I saw online, it stated that we cant use wide angle lens in pro mode. Is that so?

Hi @MishaalRahman,
Can you please check if your download speed changes if you switch from Preferred Network type 2g/3g/4g/5g to 2g/3g/4g - in a 4G area?
I find that if I set it to 2g/3g/4g/5g then download speed drops 50% or more in the same 4G location - once I switch back to 2g/3g/4g mode the speed is good again.
Thanks.

No, it's tied to your SIM's region (MCC) I believe.

Sorry, I don't know if they're seeding the Nord.

I am curious about how does it compare to the 7T? I am not too worried about the missing 5G chip in 7T.

The 7T has a better SoC (much better GPU for gaming) but isn't as future-proofed without 5G support. The 7T will have a better camera and will feel smoother running at 90Hz. Software support will be slightly longer for the Nord but only by like half a year given the difference in release dates. 7T is a better phone if you can get it for cheaper/not used.

How to backup Persist and Efs without Root and twrp ?
I mean via ADB...
Is it possible ?
Steps please

I'm not sure it's possible to backup those partitions without root.

Hi, are there any Windows 7 USB drivers for 1+ Nord?

Haven't used Windows 7 in years so I can't say. You should upgrade to W10 since W7 is EOL.

a customer review is saying that OPN does not support "google play services for AR" (proof attached for reference), can you please tell us what is the actual situation now?

1) Yes, it has A/B partitions for Seamless Updates.

2) The Nord runs Android 10, and I'm pretty sure call recording workarounds were fully killed off in Android 9 Pie.

3) No, OnePlus doesn't void warranty for rooting. I don't think they ever have.

4) No, Nord does not support Play Services for AR (yet). It likely will sometime later.

@MishaalRahman can you pls explain how to get the stock OnePlus's dialer and messaging app on Nord?
Also what to do about camera jitters?

You can try sideloading them.

No wide-angle in pro mode.

Standby battery drain on OnePlus nord

I am facing standby battery drain on my OnePlus nord. The battery drains by 9-10% overnight (7 hrs) and the highest it has drained is 25%. What should I do ? Is it a software bug or issue ?

Hello :)

I'm not new to OnePlus but it's been a few years since my op6 so IV just returned with the Nord, oos I think is perfect, would you consider rooting? And what for? Would I see benefits, and would Google pay work with Google certified? Thanks lol

To be honest I'm starting to regret buying this device. Proximity sensor seems not working, and I'm pushing some screen buttons during a call. Autobrightness levels are too low. Sound is lowering down itself. Gestures implementation is bad... Do you have these issues? I've never seen them on my old Huawei Mate 10 Pro...

Yes I have sound levels magically changing, auto brightness is broken and Google services are broken. I'm also disappointed. Some of those issues disappeared with custom roms, oos is broken and nowadays even full of bloats.

I figured out that my issues with autobrightness and proximity sensor was caused by case and screen glass. It was covering sensors. Now it's fine. Didn't find a solution for sound changes tho.

About bluetooth connectivity issue!!!

Hi XDA,

I've used the OnePlus Nord for nearly 3 weeks now and did a review of it for XDA: https://www.xda-developers.com/oneplus-nord-review/

If you have any questions about the device, ask them here and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

Hello there, I am using the OnePlus Nord since 2 months and i'm currently on oxygen version 10.5.8.AC01DA. My concern is this that there's this bluetooth issue on my device which after updates is better compared to what it was when I first turned on the device bluetooth but its not up to the mark its still garbage and thanks to oneplus we don't even have a 3.5mm jack. Its just that the connection drops again and again. While using ott apps same thing occurs and it gets even worse, because of this the wifi connections drops as well and so does this happens while gaming. So if there's any way to fix it please help us.

    Really confused between this and other options like realme x3 ... Only the developer support is swaying me towards nord as x3 wont have as good developer support..

    The Snapdragon 855+ in the Realme X3 SuperZoom has better CPU and GPU performance. The Realme X3 SuperZoom also offers better camera versatility with its telephoto lens and a better primary camera sensor. It also has a higher refresh rate display (albeit it's LCD and not OLED if that bothers you). However, you're right that long-term support of the Realme X3 SuperZoom is a lot iffier.

    Nord has dual-frequency GPS, i.e. support for L5/E5 signals and bands that could give meter precision (compared to about 5m without).
    How is the GPS quality?

    Sorry, with COVID-19 and me working from home, I can't really give you any detailed tests on this.

    So what do you have a European version or Indian and are you using it in the U.S. if so does mobile data work well, I have thought about importing one. Also I own the pixel 4 XL and I love and appreciate all your coverage on pixels and the Android developer previews and betas.

    European version - using it with my T-Mobile SIM card in the U.S. I don't use mobile data much but everything "works." I can't tell you how well it actually works in big downtown areas or in every city - check the supported bands to see how well it'll work in your area.

    One simple, two other questions

    How broad is this phone, could you use it with onehand? If i grasp my current phone my thumb can't reach past the middle of the screen. I don't enjoy that.

    How many googleapps are on this phone? I didn't like they use googlephone and messages instead of their own.
    Then news said googlefeed is on the phone if you swipe left, can you turn this feature off or is it baked in oxygenos?
    Is this phone for someone who does not use google a lot?

    Last question; can you disable paralell apps feature and use your own app for it ? (Like island for sandboxing apps.)
    ty so much for your time.

    Yes, I can use the phone in one hand. However, OOS really needs to bring back its one-handed mode that appeared in an earlier OOS beta for the 7 series...that would help with reaching buttons on the top.

    In addition to all the Google apps present on all GMS-certified phones, there's also the Google Phone app and Google Messages as the default dialer and messaging app.

    Google Feed can be turned off in OnePlus Launcher settings. The Shelf is thankfully still accessible with a swipe down gesture (it's no longer available on the minus one screen to the left where Google Feed is, though).

    Well, you don't have to use Google apps if you don't want to. You can change the default dialer and messaging apps and pretty much everything else.

    For Parallel apps: You don't have to use it, so yes, you can use Island or Shelter or whatever other work profile/sandboxing app you want.

    Can you check if display tint issue is present like in OnePlus 8 series?

    Nope, no green or purple tinting issues at low brightnesses and with black/gray colors showing on screen. My unit seems normal.

    Please upload the all screen shot of camera 2 api probe compatibility test so that I can know the video frame rates etc..
    And also please do the free filmic pro evaluater test (it is free in Google play) and share the screenshot.

    Filmic Pro Evaluator and Camera2 API Probe results: https://imgur.com/a/wzAfUrB

    Do you have screen tinting issues like in this screenshot ?: (at low brightness)
    1377102-f2926c2a82e330879f83baf925b63a7d.jpg

    As mentioned above, no screen tinting issues. I've read the Reddit and OnePlus forum posts and do not see any green or purple tinting at low brightnesses.

    Speaking of that, I'm confused between k20 pro and Nord.
    Considering, K20 pro is set to get official Lineage soon, development is good and at the same time every piece of hardware on it is better or at least on par while costing less about 6k in the upcoming sale.
    What would you prefer personally for a person who uses a device for about 5 years ? For now, nord doesn't seem promising in terms of dev support as there isn't any dev seeding program from oneplus for this device and we already saw what happened with almost similarly priced 7/7T without that program. I guess barely any recognized developer would get the nord out of his pocket for that price unless I'm wrong. What's your suggestion and take on it ?

    OnePlus does have a dev seeding program they just don't publicize it. The Redmi K20 Pro is a great phone and I can't recommend against it. It already has proven it will have a thriving developer community. However, its official support won't last as long as the new Nord, so make of that what you will.

    Is OnePlus Nord supporting full Camera2API ?

    This should have all you're looking for: https://pastebin.com/raw/8fQeL7YM

    Is there a possibility to use call recorder on the OnePlus Nord? I have been looking for days now and could not find it. I know the nord has the google dialer, is there a possibility to use the OnePlus dialer with joneplus app?

    Google Phone app does support call recording but not in all regions and not enabled on all device models. I live in the U.S. where it's not enabled, but I can't tell you about Europe or India.
