The Pixel 5a comes standard with 128 GB on internal storage. That’ll go a long way to handling all the photos, videos, apps, and games you want on your Pixel.
The iPhone SE starts $50 cheaper than the 5a, which could be a major factor in your purchase decision. However, at that price, you only get 64 GB of internal storage, half the space of the Pixel. To get to 128 GB, you’ll need to spend an additional $50, putting the phones back in the exact same price bracket.
Now, Apple does let you upgrade the SE to 256 GB, something the Pixel doesn’t let you do. If you need a lot of internal storage, that is definitely a consideration, but it will cost you an extra $100, for a total of $549.
