Realme Narzo 20 has officially been launched on Realme.com and Flipkart 28th Sept 2020. The smartphone comes with a mammoth 6,000mAh battery, MediaTek Helio G85 processor, and a triple rear camera.
Realme Narzo 20 has a relatively low price for the abundance of features it offers. The 64GB storage variant comes for ₹10,499 while the 128GB storage variant comes for ₹11,499. It’ll be available in two attractive colors – Silver and Blue.
Without further ado, let’s dive into the features and specifications Realme Narzo 20 is going to offer.
Realme Narzo 20 Design
Realme is well known for its habit of recycling the same designs across different models, and it doesn’t come as a surprise that Narzo 20 feels and looks almost similar to its C-series cousins.
It has a square-shaped camera module with three lenses and a flash while there is a fingerprint sensor located on the rear of the device. Considering that it is a relatively thick phone, it won’t be too hard to hold onto when having long phone conversations.
You’ll get a usual tall screen with well-rounded corners on the front, with thick borders all around, especially the chin. There is also added protection from Gorilla Glass. The volume and power buttons are also within reach towards the right.
Overall, Realme has done a decent job with the design. Even though the phone doesn’t feel very premium, it has a solid build quality and it won’t be too hard to use it with just one hand.
Realme Narzo 20 Display
Realme Narzo 20 comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 750×1600 pixels, which is decent at best. The resolution isn’t that high and the colors might not be the most vivid but overall the display quality is crisp enough and you will definitely be able to enjoy any movie or video you play on your phone. The screen isn’t always bright especially under direct sunlight, so you might have some trouble there whereas automatic adjustment sometimes doesn’t kick in when needed.
Realme has done an okay job with the display, it could certainly have been better. But for a budget smartphone, the display specifications are really good.
Realme Narzo 20 Software and Performance
One of the most integral things that set this one apart from C1 x models is that it comes with a powerful MediaTek Helio G85 processor. It ships with 4GB of RAM while you can choose between 64GB and 128GB storage variants. In terms of OS, it comes with Android 10 out of the box and its UI is similar to stock Android as it offers numerous exciting features like split-screen mode, app cloning, game optimizer, private storage, gestures, etc.
Gaming is definitely one of the primary strengths of MediaTek’ Helio G series processors and Realme Narzo 20 is no different. You can play almost every graphics-heavy game like Asphalt 9: Legends, Dead Trigger 2, FIFA, and more smoothly.
Realme Narzo 20 is great to use in day-to-day situations. With the bump in processor power, its responsiveness, ability to use multiple apps at once, and UI will be pleasantly fluid.
Realme Narzo 20 Battery
Its 6,000mAh battery definitely lives up to its name. You can use it for nearly two days without having to charge it again. Play games, stream movies, take tons of photos, and more without worrying about battery life becoming a potential issue. To top it all off, charging is relatively quick too, so its battery life is something that you shouldn’t worry about.
Realme Narzo 20 Camera
Unlike the Realme C1 x models there, Narzo 20 lacks special-purpose cameras. The lack of the depth sensor here is surprising too.
Its primary 48MP camera serves its purpose well as it delivers reasonably good photo quality. The colors are great though the details can be a bit rough and exposure could be a bit off sometimes. The natural depth of the field is quite good though and it is quick to lock focus. You get a portrait mode feature that detects edges quicker. The ultra-wide camera allows you to play with the composition where the quality is not as good and there is severe distortion in some cases.
Its 8MP front camera actually does a decent job though it is less effective at night. The beautification feature comes as on by default whereas its portrait mode detects the face accurately. Video recording is a bit shaky and details aren’t great but you can use the wide-angle camera lens option to compensate for this.
The Final Verdict?
Narzo 20 is definitely an interesting choice, especially when compared to its C-series sisters. Even though its display and camera aren’t its strongest features, the presence of a far better processor, a top-notch gaming experience, smoother day-to-day user experience, battery life, and relatively cheaper price makes it a superior option than competitors at the same price range.
It prioritizes performance and long-lasting battery and offers more than what most other budget smartphones offer. Narzo 20 is definitely an easier choice to recommend if you’re looking for a decent smartphone at around 10k that delivers strong performance and long-lasting battery life.
