Google has finally unveiled the latest mid-range (affordable phone) Pixel 4A yesterday in many countries which starts at $349. The India release for Pixel 4A is set for October month and its price will also be announced around that time only. This launch took place a few days after OnePlus Nord’s open sale internationally. All the above-mentioned phones belong to a similar price bracket. So we made this neck to neck comparison to make it convenient for you to understand things in depth.
After all, Google’s Pixel has been previously known for a good experience in the affordable/ mid-range device category. But this time OnePlus takes a new step forward with its own latest Nord series. Apple’s latest iPhone SE is the cheapest iPhone available for those who like iOS. Previously, OnePlus launched the OnePlus X years before making a new start with Nord series devices. But unfortunately, soon after the launch, it was taken aback.
Many brands are now making a call to enter the mid-range segment with competitive specifications. We believe brands are right on their path, in times of corona specifically nobody will ever invest a huge of money on purchasing a smartphone. Secondly, after the GST hike in India smartphone prices significantly jumped up. This move is also good for a general consumer, they get quality specs at a very reasonable price.
Below is the comparison table comparing OnePlus Nord, iPhone SE, and Pixel 4a :

We tried our level best to make you understand features from tip to top. If you ask us to make a final verdict then it is quite difficult as it does depend upon many consumer-oriented features. If you want a smartphone that should include a great camera with stock android experience then you should go for Pixel anyday. On the other hand, if you feel iOS is much secured and reliable then the iPhone SE 2020 will make your job a bit easier. Still, if we have to pick one out of these we shall consider OnePlus Nord. This device excels in every department and on paper the specs offered by the company looks very futuristic. On top of it, Oxygen OS present on OnePlus Nord ensures a great user experience that is almost close to stock Android.
