bad? Not necessarily, especially since these two devices are meant for different markets. However, the Reno7 5G and OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G are sold simultaneously in multiple markets. Which begs the question of why Oppo is doubling down.

OnePlus claims HDR10 and, more specifically, HDR10+ support for the Nord CE 2 5G display. This is something we were unable to verify in our testing. Our review unit simply did not have an HDR capable display. Sure, the phone technically supported HDR10 content and could tonemap it to play on the SDR display without the colors looking washed out.

Moreover, Netflix flat out refused to detect any HDR support and only played the SDR version of its content.
