2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Pleasant, refreshing design - back is textured and the Narzo 20 looks and feels almost exactly the same as its C-series cousins
  • Front has a similar affair with a dew-drop notch and thin bezels
  • The patterned back almost completely eliminates the chances of getting fingerprints or smudges - it also adds a lot of grip and gives the phone a very solid, sturdy feel
  • Face recognition and fingerprint sensor are quick to unlock the smartphone
  • Quite hefty, at 208g weight and 9.8 thickness

Display

  • Large, 6.5 inch IPS display with HD+ resolution - the colors are vibrant with a decent amount of sharpness
  • The Narzo 20 misses out on a full HD panel that some of Realme’s competitors have already started offering at this price
  • There is no Widevine L1 certification which means that you cannot enjoy HD content on Netflix and Amazon Prime

Software

  • The Narzo 20 comes with Realme UI based on Android 10 which is much more streamlined and clean compared to previous realme phones - it still packs a lot of useful features like Dark mode, Focus mode, Game Space and Personal Information Protection
  • There's still some bloatware that comes pre-installed

Performance

  • Performance is good for the price - the Realme Narzo 20 runs smooth in day-to-day situations, UI is pleasantly fluid and flipping between apps is quite easy - heavy gaming is possible, but don't expect too much

Cameras

  • Good triple camera setup for the price - a 48MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • The main camera can click photos with decent details in bright light - colours have a punch, they come out well even when shot against a direct light source, thanks to the HDR and chroma boost
  • The ultra-wide camera captures a wider perspective (though the details are on the weaker side)
  • The macro camera produces fun, usable photos as long as you give it a lot of light and the correct focal distance
  • The portrait shots look good, and the edge detection is decent as well
  • The 8MP front camera can shoot decent selfies - the portrait mode works for the front camera as well
  • Decent video recording quality, with a option to shoot slow motion videos
  • Low light photos are average, as expected, they lack detail and aren't very sharp

Battery

  • Monster 6000mAh battery delivers an incredible 2-3 days of usage easily, making for one of the largest battery life smartphones currently available
  • Supports 18W Fast charging with an included fast charger

Verdict

  • The Narzo 20 is a decent phone with great battery life and good enough performance for occasional gaming, therefore much easier to recommend than its C series cousins, and a much stronger offering in its segment
