Not bad for being an Android terminal, however The iPhone SE 2020 will have a much longer lifespan and will likely double the support for the Pixel 4a. The iPhone 6s released in 2015 will receive iOS 14, so it will have updates at least until 2021, which means 6 years of support. We are not going to enter into the comparison of Android with iOS, since each offers its vision and these are already two sufficiently mature systems.
Apple released the iPhone SE with A13 Bionic processor, the same as the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro and the most powerful on the market. It is literally the most powerful smartphone on the market in its price range, there is no such thing. On the other hand, the Pixel 4a doesn’t include the latest and most powerful Qualcomm processor, Google’s phone ends up with a mid-range processor, the Snapdragon 730G.

Finally, we have the colors available. The Google option is only available in black, while the iPhone SE can be purchased from Red, black and white.
As for the screens, we have two “small” options compared to the current fashion. IPhone SE only uses a small panel 4.7 inches and the Pixel 4a stays at 5.8. These are two pretty manageable options, although it’s true that the iPhone is quite small.
In terms of technology, Apple continues to use its Retina LCD displays on the iPhone SE, with a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels and 326 ppi. The Google Pixel 4a uses OLED technology in its panel 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution and 443 ppi.

For its part, The iPhone SE takes advantage of the A13 Bionic processor to obtain very interesting results in this price range. These are the specifications of the rear cameras of each device.
- iPhone SE. 12 megapixel sensor, ƒ1.8 and 4K video recording at 60 fps.
