If you are in the market for a new smartphone for around Rs. 30,000, then you have to consider the Poco F4 and the OnePlus Nord 2T. While both devices have their own pros and cons, they are set to deliver a completely different user experience. I have been testing both devices over the last few days, and here is a comprehensive comparison between the OnePlus Nord 2T and the Poco F4 (review).

Design is a subjective matter, and I personally like how the OnePlus Nord 2T looks and feels when compared to the Poco F4. In my defense, the smaller OnePlus Nord 2T just looks cleaner and more premium with a curvier design, while the boxy-looking Poco F4 just looks like a big phone.

Again, the Poco F4 is a slightly larger phone than the OnePlus Nord 2T. Hence, this boils down to personal preference. If you want a smaller and premium-looking phone, go for the OnePlus Nord 2T, else, you can pick the Poco F4.

Hence, browsing social media apps and scrolling across the UI does feel a bit smoother than Poco F4 when compared to the OnePlus Nord 2T.

The Poco F4 also has Dolby Vision certification. This when combined with large screen real estate, the Poco F4 is definitely ahead of the OnePlus Nord 2T when it comes to multimedia consumption and gaming.
