there's no comparison: org-mode is the best for note-taking, personal task management, literate programming, etc. there's a lot of Emacs packages for adding functionality to org-mode, like creating blogs with hugo/ox-hugo, doing your math and previewing it with latex integration, researching with org-roam, and the list goes on.

edit: currently the most problematic thing with org-mode is mobile support. On Android there's orgzly, but it's essentially only useful for task management. Now there's organice, which is a web app that's trying to solve this so you can edit org-mode files through your web browser either mobile or desktop.

Very customizable, wholly private with no web dependency.

Org mode does not work on Android. Therefore, it is NOT an alternative to EssentialPIM.
