Realme Narzo 20 Detailed Review

Design

Realme Narzo 20 has a similar look and feel as its competitor, Realme C15. The phone does have a weathered, rough feel rather than the glossy look most phone designers go for these days. However, the phone does feel heavy in hand because of its big battery, increasing its thickness.

The front panel has a teardrop notch design with comparatively thick bezels on all sides. On the back, the camera module is placed in a square shape which houses the triple camera setup of the phone. The fingerprint sensor is placed below the camera module on the horizontal centre of the back panel.

The colour combination in Realme Narzo 20 design is probably the most significant difference between this phone and the Realme C15. This phone has a single-colour design with v-shaped designs moving down the back.

The bottom edge of the phone houses a Type-C port with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a speaker grille. Both the power button and the volume rockers are placed on the right edge and dual SIM + dedicated microSD card slot on the left side. The phone's back does have a curved edge to improve the grip, but the phone still feels bulky in hand.The bottom edge of the phone houses a Type-C port with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a speaker grille.

The phone's back does have a curved edge to improve the grip, but the phone still feels bulky in hand.

Summary

Weathered and rough feel A typeC port and has a 35mm headphone jack

Display

Narzo 20 screen has a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD panel with an aspect ratio of 20:9. To provide extra protection, Realme has added a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the teardrop notch screen. As discussed earlier, the screen's bezels are slightly too big, making the viewing experience less appealing.

Considering the price point, we did not expect a higher frame rate, and we were not disappointed. However, we are hoping for a better screen refresh rate in the upcoming phones of Realme. Also, the HD+ screen was a bit of a disappointment as other companies provide this feature in cheaper phones.

Also, the screen's colour calibration and viewing angles are not accurate because of the LCD panels, but we don't have any complaints about the brightness levels. You can customise the device’s colour temperature using the inbuilt display settings and Dark Mode and Blue Light Filter mode.

Summary

Average display low software customization and tweaks

Performance

Realme Narzo 20 specifications include a MediaTek Helio G85 processor, an upgrade from its sibling phone. This processor is more than capable of performing multi-tasking and has a good performance for gaming for high-graphics games such as Call Of Duty. The device has a 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage that is expandable.

undefined-Performance

Summary

Processor upgrade good performance excellent for gaming

Battery

Arguably the best feature of the phone is its massive 6,000 mAh battery. Considering the LCD screen with the low-refresh rate, you can expect a good battery life of over a day on heavy use. The device supports 18W fast charging and takes up to 2 and a half hours to fully charge. Realme Narzo 20 battery life is significantly longer than other phones in the same price range.

Summary

Massive battery fast charging and 45days standby

Camera

Realme Narzo 20 camera is a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor. Apart from that, the camera setup has an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro sensor. We liked the camera setup because the company did not add more sensors with poor quality just for showmanship. Apart from the macro sensor, the phone can click decent pictures.

In our initial testing, we were happy with the results considering the price of the phone. Apart from a few saturated images, all the photos were exposure-accurate, portraying a good dynamic range. Few software features such as AI-scene detection and Chroma boost certainly helps in clicking more dramatic pictures for social media.

undefined-Camera

At night, the phone did not fare well, but that's understandable considering its price. A dedicated night mode will somewhat help take sharper pictures but do not expect detailed photos at night with this phone.

The ultra-wide-angle lens has a 119-degree field of view which helps capture landscape and group photos. There are distortions on the edges, which happen in every wide-angle sensor, but there will also be fewer details due to the small camera sensor. The macro sensor is just an accessory to the phone and cannot click good pictures.

The front camera setup consists of a single 8MP sensor that can click decent selfies. It has several software modes such as AI beauty, Portrait Mode, HDR, etc.

 

Summary

Good camera decent pictures with sharp details

Large Battery, Reliable performance, and aesthetic design

  • Excellent Battery Backup

    The 6000 mAh battery will surely last you longer than a day with little to moderate use.

  • Adequate Camera Setup

    Considering the price point, the camera performed decently well.

  • Powerful Processor

    We did not have any complaints with the processor even while playing high-end games.
