OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G is the company’s most affordable 5G smartphone, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC. The device comes with a 6.59-inch IPS LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. We have seen the use of the Snapdragon 695 SoC on smartphones like the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G.
The Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G throttled down to 69 percent of its peak performance after stressing the CPU for 60 minutes. How does the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G fair against the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G? Can it sustain the peak load/performance? Here are our findings from the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G’s stress test.

I have played COD: Mobile on the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G for around 40 minutes with very high graphics settings and very high frame rate settings. For the entire gaming session, the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G offered a solid frame rate of 59/60 without any frame drops while playing the game. The smartphone did get a bit hot after around 10 minutes of gaming. However, it was nothing alarming.
