The flagship phone has a good combination of a processor with an amazing display and camera. The phone can handle most of the heavy tasks easily. The front pop-up and rear triple camera, both are good to capture beautiful shots in most lighting conditions. Paired with 4,000mAh battery, k20 Pro is an excellent value for money phone.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro camera review
Source: DxOMark English version
The Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro’s DXOMARK score of 102 doesn’t get the device a top position in our ranking, but it is still a respectable result for a phone that is less than half the price of many flagships from the competition. It covers focal lengths from ultra-wide to 2x telephoto and is capable of recording decent still images and video in most situations. There is room for improvement in some areas—for example, dynamic range, white balance and video detail—but from a photography point of view, the Redmi is a great value for the money overall and worth a close look from any mobile photographer on a limited budget.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro hands-on review

Overall, we think the K20 Pro offers tremendous value for money - especially on markets where the Mi9 is not available - and unless you are looking for specific features, better camera performance or different software, we think most people don't need to look any further than this for a great all-round smartphone experience.

Redmi K20 Pro Review: Value Flagship
Source: Androidbeat English version
Xiaomi is the largest smartphone vendor in India. Its success can be attributed to the popularity of its budget Redmi and Redmi Note series. While the company has launched its flagship Mi Mix and Mi series handsets in India, they failed to do well. This time around, Xiaomi is bringing a new flagship-grade smartphone under its Redmi branding: the Redmi K20 Pro.

The phone comes recommended if you can live with MIUI 10 and the slow under-display fingerprint scanner. But where would that slot the speculated POCO F2? Xiaomi looks set to create confusion in the 20-30k segment as well with the K20 series. I wouldn’t be surprised if Xiaomi releases a Redmi K20 Lite next.

At Rs 30,999 (8GB/256GB), the Redmi K20 Pro midrange smartphone has the qualities to challenge some of the current-generation premium phones.

This smartphone heralds the Redmi brand in a new avatar, indicating Xiaomi’s ambitions to expand take its dominance beyond the budget and affordable segments. With OnePlus now eyeing the premium segment, Xiaomi might be looking to enter its shoes in the midrange premium segment.

80% Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro review: Finally, Xiaomi has an answer to OnePlus
Source: Gadgets Now English version
For quite some time OnePlus phones had been a preferred choice for buyers looking at buying affordable flagships. However, there is now a more value for money option with the Redmi K20 Pro. The device offers everything you would need in a flagship at a very competitive price. In fact, this is the most affordable smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and there is a difference of Rs 5,000 between the base variants of OnePlus 7 and Redmi K20 Pro. If you are looking forward for a flagship then this is your best bet under Rs 30,000 and plus Rs 999 for the 8GB RAM model.

Source: The Indian Express English version
Xiaomi has jam-packed this phone with a lot of features and the Redmi K20 Pro’s price is thus justified. The display, the performance, the overall look and design, and the camera’s performance in regular lighting is impressive. With the Redmi K20 Pro, the biggest cons could push notifications from the Xiaomi apps, which are annoying, the camera’s low-light performance, and the battery, which had an erratic performance in my usage.

The K20 Pro is Xiaomi's flagship model in the Redmi range, and has a lot on offer at an affordable price. Yes, it lacks wireless charging and an IP rating, but that can be forgiven considering its lower price tag. The Redmi K20 Pro has the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and the variants have generous amounts of RAM and storage for their prices. The pop-up selfie camera and an AMOLED display are firsts for a Redmi device.

77% Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Review
Source: Think Digit English version
The Redmi K20 Pro has all the bells and whistles of an affordable flagship. We won’t outright call it a premium flagship since there are still some features that are missing that makes a device premium. Yet, the K20 Pro incorporates all the features that are in vogue this year — a bezel-less display, pop-up camera on the front and triple cameras on the back, a gradient design and flagship performance. If you were wondering, the Redmi K20 Pro is also much more than what the Poco F1 offered. The Poco flagship focused only on performance while the K20 Pro is an all-rounder of sorts. While the price does come close to what other Snapdragon 855-powered flagships ship for, it's still the most affordable flagship you can buy right now that comes with all the bells and whistles that are in vogue this year.

Redmi K20 Pro Review: Dude, Let’s Go Kill Some Flagships!
Source: Tech PP English version
Of course, in best Redmi tradition, the real killer punch is the price. The Redmi K20 Pro starts at Rs 27,999 for the 6GB/128 GB variant. And that makes it easily the most affordable Android flagship out there by some distance. The fact that it enjoys that status without cutting any major design or performance corners makes it all the more formidable. There is competition of course, most notably from the OnePlus 7 duo (yes, yes, we have a comparison coming up shortly), and from the Asus 6z, but right now, the Redmi K20 Pro pretty much stands in a zone of its own, and could well have redefined the term budget flagship. It really is now up to the competition to up its game. Or change it.

The Redmi K20 Pro is an interesting smartphone from Xiaomi. The phone is loaded with a premium design, which stands out from the competition. The display looks crisp with good viewing angles and the hardware performance is top-notch. Software is one area where the company needs to work more, while the cameras are quite decent. The battery is dependable and the audio experience is decent. In nutshell, the Redmi K20 Pro is a hard-to-ignore Flagship Killer from Xiaomi.

While the Redmi K20 Pro is not officially the Pocophone F1’s successor, it has everything it takes to be it. It’s not as cheap as the F1, but it checks all the boxes that made the F1 so great last year, plus more. With everything you get — the S-tier performance, the cameras, the display, design, battery — it’s shockingly affordable.

Model: The Redmi K20 Pro is the latest addition to Xiaomi’s spin off company, Redmi. As was always the main motto of the Redmi line up, the K20 pro aims to give flagship level performance for a price close to lower mid-range smartphones. To put it simple, OnePlus always claims itself to be the flagship killer. Well, the K20 Pro then is, just like the Pocophone released last year by Xiaomi, the “Flagship Killer’s” killer. For a start, the design is almost identical to the Xiaomi Mi 9T. The back part of both phones has the same gradient effect, clearly visible under certain angles. The back and front is covered in Gorilla Glass 5. The layout is also similar with the cameras placing and all. Both phones sport the same, 6.39-inch AMOLED display but for some reason, the Redmi’s screen is named as Super AMOLED. As for the specs, the K20 Pro comes with a more powerful Snapdragon 855 chipset combined with an Adreno 640 GPU for gaming. The Mi 9T on the other hand comes with a Snapdragon 730 processor coupled with an Adreno 618 GPU. The Redmi K20 Pro has at least 4 different type of RAM and ROM combination that can be chosen from before purchasing. However, it doesn’t have a memory card slot for expanding the memory.

The K20 Pro has a triple camera setup for the main camera, one 48 MP wide angle camera, one 8 MP telephoto camera, and a 13 MP ultrawide camera. Early reviews have claimed that the camera is amazing at capturing outdoor photos and relatively good at capturing photos with low light conditions. Just like the Mi 9T, the selfie camera is a 20 MP motorized pop-up camera. Many reviewers have condemned the photo qualities of the said camera. Others function include Bluetooth 5.0 and Type-C reversible connection for charging and data transfer. The fingerprint sensor is embedded under the display just like the Mi 9T's. Locking and unlocking is much faster than the first generation of under display scanners. The phone includes a massive 4,000 mAh battery, which supports 27 W charging (Quick Charge 4+), which is definitely faster than the 18 W charging offered by the Mi 9T. The K20 Pro can be obtained in black, red and blue colors. The K20 Pro redefines what we can expect from a budget phone. Gone were the days of plastic body and low-quality build for a mid-range smartphone. With the exception of wireless charging and waterproofing, the K20 Pro is pretty much on the flagship level with bigger brands such as Samsung and OnePlus. It may not be as perfect but for almost half the price, you can’t lose anything with this phone.
