Last year I wrote an article about the OnePlus Nord I had acquired. Initially quite excited about the amazing bang for the buck ratio I noticed a few shortcomings throughout the last few months. Based on those I decided to give the Pixel 4a a chance to shine. Ron Amadeo over on arstechnica.com quite clearly calls the OnePlus Nord the better option and recommends it over the Pixel 4a. I think that’s not telling the whole story. The Pixel 4a has a few unique aspects which might make it preferable to some and offer an overall worry-free package.
Chances are most people coming across this post have already heard about this new phone. OnePlus certainly managed to capture a lot of media attention. It just so happens that I was in the need of a different phone and bought a Nord as well. I’d like to share some of my thoughts in this blog post about why I chose this phone and what my experience has been since receiving the Nord.
