Stuff Awards 2023: Budget Smartphone of the Year

CE, you already know why we like this… right?

Best Budget Smartphone of the Year 2023: OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite

The flat-edged design fits perfectly in the hand and though you don’t get the iconic OnePlus alert slider, at this price point, an actual 3.5mm headphone jack and expandable storage could mean more. Powered by the mid-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 695G SoC running on 8GB of memory. The 6.7in display is typically 120Hz smooth and with 680 nits on tap, it never really keeps you wanting for more brightness, even outdoors. Along with dual speakers, it makes for a formidable gaming device. The 200% Ultra Volume mode is more of a force-fit and gives you a bit of extra headroom.
