Both are the same budget chipset. The Oppo realme gt master & Pixel 6a Same budget phone. While GT master has 778g & 6a has Google Tensor. Google tensor is far better than 778g. And I think its a competitor of Snapdragon 870. Everyone knows that google is an optimization king. Google Camera at present the best camera in the world after Sony Phone. Stock Android with a clean performance. So Taking Google Pixel 6A is far better than Taking Oppo's realme. Google has a better brand then Realme.
