The Realme Narzo 20 Pro sports some interesting specifications; and it's also interesting that this is the first device in the Narzo series to get a ‘Pro' badge. The price of the Narzo 20 Pro starts at Rs. 14,999, and there are very few phones that offer such hardware and specifications in the value segment. However, this also pits the Narzo 20 Pro right against the Realme 7, which it shares a lot of hardware with. So that begs the question, which one should you pick? I test the Narzo 20 Pro to find out.
The Realme Narzo 20 Pro shares the same design as the Realme 7. It sports a 6.5-inch 90Hz full-HD+ display with a camera hole in the top left corner which some might find to be distracting. The Narzo 20 Pro has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner placed on the power button. The volume buttons are moved over to the other side of the device, which makes them easy to hit.
The Narzo 20 Pro has a quad-camera setup and the back panel has a V-shaped pattern that shines when light bounces off it at the right angle Realme has used a 4,500mAh battery for the Narzo 20 Pro, consisting of two 2,250mAh cells, in order to enable faster charging. It supports Realme's proprietary 65W SuperDart charging, with a suitable charger bundled in the box. The Narzo 20 Pro weighs 191g which is acceptable given its size and the battery it packs in.
Realme has opted for the same MediaTek Helio G95 for the Narzo 20 Pro. It has two variants with 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, The Narzo 20 Pro gave me no reason to complain in everyday use. It was quick to load apps, and switching between them was a breeze. The fingerprint scanner and face recognition were quick to unlock the device.
The quad-camera setup on the Narzo 20 Pro consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel black-and-white portrait camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. the phone clicks 12-megapixel shots by default and had good dynamic range. Photos from the ultra-wide-angle camera had a lower resolution output. Close-ups were good, and the Narzo 20 Pro managed sharp results with a soft blur for the background. Portrait shots were decent.
Low-light camera performance was strictly average but switching to Night mode returned slightly brighter results.Selfies taken with the Realme Narzo 20 Pro were decent, and the output was smoothened. Video recording tops out at 4K for the primary camera, while the selfie camera can shoot up to 1080p footage. Daylight videos shot at 1080p had a mild shimmer while 4K footage wasn't stabilised.
