Realme Narzo 20A First Impressions



Today, we get to spend a while with the brand new Realme Narzo 20A, rounding out the Realme Narzo 20 household. We’ve already talked about this telephone’s siblings, the Narzo 20 and Narzo 20 Pro, which price extra and are positioned increased. This collection is supposed to prioritise processor energy particularly for gaming, so the Narzo 20A which begins at Rs. 8,499 may very well be fairly a compelling choice. This mannequin undercuts the Narzo 10A by Rs. 500 and likewise probably clashes with the Realme C12.

While the Narzo 20 (Review) seems almost similar to the Realme C15 (Review) and the Narzo 20 Pro shares a lot of its design with the Realme 7 (Review), what we’ve got with the Narzo 20A is the Narzo 10A (Review) over again… which is itself a refreshed Realme C3 (Review). I suppose we actually should not be stunned by this recycling and duplication anymore, nevertheless it does create a world of confusion.

The new Narzo 20A has the identical V-shaped, ridged “Victory design” sample on the rear as its siblings. The plastic shell is matte and you’ll see a slight color shift as you tilt the telephone. You get the identical Victory Blue and Glory Silver color choices as with the Narzo 20. The digital camera module on the rear is vertical, which is the primary design factor separating the 2 fashions. You’ll additionally discover that the Narzo 20A is a bit of slimmer and lighter because it has a smaller battery.

The Realme Narzo 20A has a 5000mAh battery



Externally, there’s nothing new or modern concerning the Narzo 20A. You get a 6.5-inch HD+ 720×1600-pixel display with rounded corners, a waterdrop digital camera notch, and comparatively thick borders.

There’s an old-style Micro-USB port on the underside, which is considerably disappointing to see, with a 3.5mm audio jack and speaker to both facet of it. The energy button is on the fitting and quantity buttons are on the left, with a fingerprint sensor on the again. Everything is inside attain.

What does stand out is the usage of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. This is a primary for the Narzo collection, which has to date used solely MediaTek’s G-series processors. Considering that the Nokia 5.3 (Review) with the identical processor begins at Rs. 13,999 and Realme’s personal Realme 5 (Review) was launched at Rs. 9,999 simply over a yr in the past, that is trying prefer it may very well be good worth for cash – however there are certain to be compromises elsewhere.

You get both 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for Rs. 8,499, or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for Rs. 9,499. There are two Nano-SIM slots and a separate microSD slot for storage enlargement. You get 10W charging for the 5000mAh battery. Other specs embody Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS.

As for cameras, some individuals is perhaps disillusioned. Realme does declare that the Narzo 20A has three cameras, which is a promoting level, however two of them are mainly fillers on the spec sheet. There’s the first 12-megapixel digital camera which needs to be of use, however the different two are 2-megapixel cameras described as “retro lens” and “B&W lens” that are used just for particular filter results. You do not get a wide-angle or macro digital camera, or perhaps a depth sensor, so “triple camera” may not imply what you suppose it does. That stated, the entrance 8-megapixel digital camera appears ample. I’ll be testing all of those to judge photograph high quality in numerous situations very quickly.


True to its positioning, the Narzo 20A prioritises CPU efficiency and there is little or no else to say concerning the spec sheet. It might be attention-grabbing to see how the Qualcomm processor and its built-in GPU carry out, relative to the Narzo 20 and even the Narzo 10A. Realme has made navigating its product stack very troublesome nevertheless it’s potential that there are patrons for whom this actual mixture of specs is excellent.

If you are confused about Realme’s lineup, keep tuned to Gadgets 360. A full evaluation of the Narzo 20A, with particulars of its gaming efficiency, common utilization, digital camera high quality, battery life, software program, and way more, is developing very quickly.
