Realme Narzo 20A Review

Highlights

  2. Realme used the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 to handle everything from games to camera performance.
  3. The 6.5 inches HD+ screen is a decent choice from Realme for an immersive media experience.
  4. The Narzo 20A can become the star of the show with its elegant V-shaped design.
  5. Realme UI 2.0 comes with many improvements and new features.

Design and Display

The company captivates interested buyers by updating the phone with a V-shaped back panel that looks wonderful. In addition, the stylish touch buttons and a balanced weight provide the phone with a top edge.

The hump of the vertically aligned triple camera dominates the rear of the device. Keeping the Narzo 10A in competition, this new model has much narrower bezels at the edges of the screen, as well as an interesting matte rear layout. When it comes to screen specifications, you can see a decent 6.5-inch 720p IPS LCD panel, including a teardrop notch next to the thin bezels and chin on the bottom.

Going further, the colors and viewing angles are good, providing an unprecedented gaming experience. In addition, you will have no problem with screen brightness even outdoors. For screen protection, Realme incorporates Corning Gorilla Glass 3 at the top of the screen.

Memory and Internals

Keeping the Narzo 10A insight, the Narzo 20A is powered by a more powerful and efficient Snapdragon 665 chipset coupled with Adreno 610 compared to the previous Helio G70. The Snapdragon 665 is one of the best SoCs under the Rs 10,000 price range. Apparently, you can feel the agility and fluency in day-to-day performance.

In addition, the Narzo 20A can offer exceptionally smooth performance when playing multiplayer games like Call of Duty Mobile or Free Fire. Under the hood, the updated Realme UI 2.0 brings some underrated and interesting functions, such as increased privacy protection, updated icons, new AOD options, AI wallpapers, etc.

On the positive side of things, Realme offers two memory variants for the Narzo 20A. You can buy 3GB/32GB or 4GB/64GB. Although the storage type is eMMC 5.1, it must provide decent data transfer and application open speeds. Fortunately, we have the option to further expand storage via an external SD card, in case you run out of storage space.

Camera

If we go to the optics, Realme Narzo 20A sports a 12 MP f1.8 primary sniper for brilliant daylight photos. In addition, there are two additional sensors. One is a 2 MP microsensor and the other is a 2 MP depth sensor, which is actually a placeholder for increasing the camera count.

The photos captured by Narzo 20A offer natural colors, a decent dynamic range, and, even in low light, there is Nightscape mode for brighter pictures. Some of the camera’s functions include Timelapse, Chroma Boost, 4K recording, Expert mode, etc.

As for selfies, an 8 MP lens integrated into a teardrop-shaped notch captures impressive details without excessive exposure in the background. In addition, it facilitates facial unlocking for instant unlocking with just one look.

Battery and Others

Like the Narzo 10A, this device also draws power from a huge 5000mAh Li-Po battery and can not only function as a power bank to charge other devices. You do not need to connect the included 10W charger for more than a day, even with heavy to moderate use.

The company ships the phone mainly in two attractive colors – Glory silver and Victory blue. The last thing left to say is the price of Narzo 20A, the basic variant starts at $120 (8,499 INR).
