It says it in the image above: 'Never Settle'. Indeed, never settle for spending more cash than you need to – especially when it comes to the best Amazon Prime Day deals

It's part of my job to review phones and assess where they sit amongst their competitors. One device that's impressed the whole T3 team in recent times is the OnePlus Nord 2.

It's among the company's more budget Android devices, released almost exactly a year ago in 2021, but 2022's Prime Day sales mean its price is cut yet further.

High ranked in the best cheap phones you can buy today, the second-gen Nord is a little superstar without a big price tag.

It's got a very long battery life and quick charging, performs really well for something so affordable, and it's only really the lack of waterproofing and wireless charging that grates. 

I think it's among the best budget phones on the market right now, so an Amazon Prime Day discount only makes its appeal even more significant. 

As scribed in T3's review: "the OnePlus Nord 2 has everything you could need from a phone and manages to squeeze it all into a more affordable package."

Can't say better than that if you're looking for an affordable Android device, especially when there's more than 30% off the list price.
