OnePlus and Google’s new launches are in a bracket of affordable smartphones. OnePlus Nord and Google Pixel 4a are competing in the market as the next mid-range smartphones with comparable specs.

A flagship-like experience in the new smartphones is a part of the new smartphone. Here’s how you can compare the two smartphones.

Nord has a rear quad-cam set-up of 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, 5MP depth along with a dual selfie camera of 32MP wide, 8MP ultra-wide lens.

Pixel 4a only comes with a 12.2 MP main camera and a front camera of 8MP. Though, this itself does not compare the camera quality. But with respect to the specs, Nord seems to have a superior experience. At the same time, we cannot dispense off Google’s extremely good quality cameras.

These phones are similar in many ways, yet different. Nord is Nord offering a great value for money considering you get a larger display, more powerful hardware, and 5G in a design that’s a little more premium.

Whereas Pixel 4a offers a great camera experience, however, and while it doesn’t offer as many cameras, often the performance is better. It’s slightly less powerful and there’s no 5G enabled support.

It’s not hard to lean towards Nord but Pixel 4a offers a great deal for those wanting a compact handset.

But as of now, even looking at the specs sheet, we cannot make a final choice. As of now, we can wait until we try both the phone side by side for a better comparison.
