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.
