Google Pixel 4a vs OnePlus Nord vs Pixel 5: specs comparison
After months upon months of leaks and rumors, Google has finally made the Google Pixel 4a official. The new phone has the hard task to reinvigorate interest in Google's phone lineup after the lackluster Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL failed to do so facing some truly merciless competition late last year. Would the Pixel 4a suffer the same faith?

And what a phone that Pixel 4a is! With a compact design and 5.8-inch OLED display, a upper mid-range Snapdragon chipset, and Google's almighty image processing in control of the camera, the Pixel 4a looks set to take kick behinds and take names. There won't be 5G support, but this will change this fall when the 5G-enabled Pixel 4a makes an appearance alongside the Pixel 5. 

But how does the Pixel 4a stack up against the upcoming Pixel 5 in terms of its other specs? What's more important, how does the new Pixel stack up against another up-and-coming star, the OnePlus Nord
