- Realme Narzo 20 Pro brings a capable processor and a good display.
- Its fast charging tech is available for the lowest price in India.
- But it does not come off as a better deal over Realme 7.
Realme Narzo 20 Pro is one of the latest phones to launch in India, adding to the sea of highly capable mid-range phones. But unlike some other phones in its price category, the Realme Narzo 20 Pro has an oomph factor. It features 65W fast charging that was once exclusive to premium-category devices in India. This device brings this technology for under Rs 15,000, which is something that will win customers over a lot more than what other phones can do.
I am not saying this because the company claims so but based on my experience. I reviewed the Narzo 20 Pro earlier this week and found most things in place. For Rs 14,999, Narzo 20 Pro brings a powerful and impressive combination of hardware and software. Although there were a few things that could not impress me as much, you can gladly ignore them if you tend to like seeing your phone getting charged up all fast. Here are five points to tell you what goes right for Rs 14,999 and what does not:
- Realme Narzo 20 Pro belongs to the mid-range for Rs 14,999. This means you can easily expect it to be a powerful phone per your needs. A phone that can click good photos, last about a full day, and is a treat to eyes when you are looking at it generally and while watching a movie. Narzo 20 Pro ticks all these boxes with pride. Its display is rich and colourful enough to please you when while watching Netflix or playing games and its battery is long-lasting.
- Specifically, the battery on the Narzo 20 Pro is a 4500mAh one. It is essentially a two-cell battery that is logistically apt for when a fast charging method is used. This one uses the seasoned 65W technology that can top it up in less than 40 minutes. A feature like this is the one to admire. A lot of people are always on the go and if they somehow do not like carrying power banks around, 65W charging technology can bring the battery level up to 30 per cent in less than 20 minutes. The battery itself is long-lasting: it died on me after an exhausting 24 hours.
- Realme has been making some of the beautiful phones available in the market. Narzo 20 Pro is one of them. Its polycarbonate body does not look cheap at all. Instead, the arrow-like patterns make it one elegant phone to have. It is not an expensive phone, but no one can tell you that going by its looks. Utility-wise, this phone has a well-placed fingerprint sensor on the power button that also works well.
- Powering the Realme Narzo 20 Pro is a MediaTek Helio G95 processor that also gives Realme 7 its brains. I have used this processor previously on Realme phones and I must say it deserves your money, at least for the output it has to offer. I liked how it handles multitasking on the phone without fretting. Gaming is also smooth on the Narzo 20 Pro, although you need not be overambitious here. By that, I mean you should not go for extreme-level graphic settings on the Narzo 20 Pro if you want smooth gameplay.
- The cameras are also decent on the Realme Narzo 20 Pro, but they are not as good as those on Realme 7. I mean they are individually good but since you are paying Rs 14,999 for Narzo 20 Pro as well as for Realme 7, you deserve the better one. The better one is Realme 7 because it can click better night-mode photos and bring in good details in photos -- something Narzo 20 Pro cannot for the price. I am not saying Narzo 20 Pro has bad cameras but why would you go for it when you are getting better ones on Realme 7 for the same price?
The bottom line is that the Narzo 20 Pro can be a good phone for you, especially when you want fast charging on it. But if you want better cameras, I will recommend Realme 7 for Rs 14,999. You can read the full review of Realme Narzo 20 Pro here.
