Reviews for the realme Narzo 20

realme narzo 20 Review: Best Gaming Phone Under Php 8K
Source: Unbox English
The narzo 20 is a great addition to realme’s lineup of bang-for-the-buck budget phones, offering great performance and battery life while keeping the price low. It’s just a little perplexing that the brand is introducing a slew of new phones that are priced so incredibly close to one another, which makes it very difficult for a potential customer to choose a phone to suit their needs.

Realme Narzo 20 Full Review – Budget Phone that Mobile Gamers will Love
Source: Manila Shaker English
The Realme narzo 20 has a price to performance ratio that’s acceptable. One of the entry-level devices in the market that has the power to play Triple-A mobile games in high-quality settings. Yes, there are some sacrifices or cuts in the hardware specs, but with that being said, Realme Narzo 20 is just priced at P7,990 for 4gb/64gb. They removed unnecessary hardware but then, they upgraded the “needed specs”. This lowers the price of this device and that’s good. If you’re looking for the best budget entry-level phone to buy, then this phone should be on your list.

For the price of PHP 7,490 (4GB + 64GB), the new narzo 20 packs good capabilities at a low price. Comparing it to the realme C15, the narzo 20 packs better performance thanks to the processor, which will benefit gamers. It also has a Type-C port and versatile cameras. The only disadvantage we see here is how it’s almost identical to realme’s previous offerings. However, if you’re thinking of getting a new budget smartphone in this budget, we recommend that you get this one instead.

70% Realme Narzo 20 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Realme has created even more confusion in its product lineup with the release of the Narzo 20, which seems to handily outclass the Realme C15. Although the C15 starts at a lower price, the Naro 20 is actually less expensive when you look at variants with comparable specifications. The Narzo 20 has a far better processor, and as a result overall performance is clearly superior. It also has a Type-C port and arguably more useful cameras.

78% Realme Narzo 20 Review: Getting into (Redmi) Prime Land!
Source: Tech PP English
It might not have the bells and whistles of the 20 Pro. Or the lower price tag of the 20A. What the Narzo 20 does have is good old fashioned consistency, a great design, and terrific battery life. More than enough to make it a contender for anyone with a budget of around Rs 10,000!

RealMe Narzo 20 Review: Does it have the intensity to take on Intense competition?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Narzo 20 has a fantastic battery, but the smartphone fails to surprise with its pricing, as Realme has done in the past, or with features. The competition is intense, and Narzo 20 lacks intensity.
