Speaking of video, iPhone is the best in terms of focus, detail and we can say that if you are someone who shoots a lot of video then go for the iPhone. Pixel comes right after the phone with its good stabilized video and finally, Nord which can shoot video in different perspectives because of its multiple lenses.
The iPhone SE in India starts at Rs 47,800 while the Nord price starts at Rs 24,999 and finally Pixel which Google promises to bring to India at some point in time and rumors suggests a price at around Rs 32,000.
If you are someone who needs the best specs and don’t really care of gaming and camera they go for the Nord, if you are someone who shoots photo regularly and don’t bother having a smaller screen then you can wait for the Pixel 4a and finally if you want to try out the ios, shoot videos regularly and want a compact phone then go for iPhone SE but if you are someone who don’t need a smaller screen then buy the iPhone XR since it almost offers the same feature and a better battery and a bigger display and in India, it is priced almost similar to the iPhone SE.
