Redmi K20 Pro Review

I bought the Glacier Blue variant with an 8 + 256 configuration in Alpha Cell.
I am upgrading from mi A1, and I believe that this phone feels heavy with a case on it. Using one hand is very difficult.
The in-display finger print scanner was working perfectly until I put a tempered glass on it. So be prepared to use it without tempered glass.

Performance is at the top as it has flagship specifications, and whatever application you try to run on it, there is no shortage. Gaming on this device is excellent and I did not feel much heat even with extended hours of gaming sessions.

Battery life is amazing and I am constantly getting 7-8hrs of screen time. The battery will last up to 2 days even with medium-heavy usage. The standard 18W charger in the box is too fast for my needs. It usually takes 100–11min for 0–100%. This time the 25W charger will cut 20mins and cut your pocket by 1k: P.

The AMOLED display is gorgeous and is the first phone for me in which the auto brightness feature works really well. I have not been able to enjoy the full screen display due to the lack of content on YouTube / Prime etc. supporting this aspect ratio, although the video can be captured, the content is cropped.

Cameras are good on this device, I don't take many pictures, so I can't really judge them well. The first look of the photo with the back camera is good and pleasing to the eye. Images from the front camera are washed out, this issue can be corrected with a software update.

The miui experience on this device is good, especially because Poco Launcher has been given as the default launcher.

Cellular reception is excellent.

I would definitely recommend this device, if you are looking for a phone in a 30k budget.

Starting with the Redmi K20 Pro, it features a rather glassy glass back, as well as a full-screen 6.39-inch OLED display (2,340 x 1,080) with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The full-screen design is enabled thanks to the 20MP pop-up camera, in which Redmi claims that it pops up in 0.8 seconds. In a nice touch, Redmi adds that you can also select one of the six pop-up sounds.

Ever since OnePlus 7 was announced, Xiaomi has been taking pot shots on OnePlus (on both online and offline advertising platforms), the brand that once marketed their phones as "major killers". Xiaomi is aggressively promoting its upcoming Redmi phone as "flagship killer 2.0".

Once it officially arrives, the Redmi K20 Pro is expected to be the cheapest Snapdragon 855 phone in the country. There are a lot of things Xiaomi is doing differently this time, and we'll talk about the overall experience in our Redmi K20 Pro review.

Designed and manufactured

Last year when we reviewed the Poco F1, we concluded that it offered exceptional value, but it lacked design. Well, Xiaomi seems to have noticed that. The design of the Redmi K20 Pro is refreshing and well thought out.

In China, the Redmi K20 Pro is offered in three colors: Carbon Black, Glacier Blue and Flame Red. We have a carbon black variant that looks really cool and looks great, especially if you compare it to the Poco F1. I am also familiar with the attractive red color variant and hope that Xiaomi will bring it to India too.

The Redmi K20 Pro has a glass-metal construction where the front and rear glass are firmly fixed by metal side rails. The 3D curved design features a finely drawn carbon fiber texture beneath the Gorilla Glass 5 layer, giving it a distinctive, more innate appearance than the gradients we've seen on affordable phones in recent times.

There is a triple rear camera module on the rear where the 48MP primary sensor is highlighted by a red ring. Thanks to the tapered edges, the Redmi K20 Pro fits sluggishly in our palms. Unlike the Poco F1, both the volume rocker and the power button are metal, providing excellent tactile feedback. The red accent on the power key also adds to the overall appeal of the K20.

Dude is back. The K20 Pro's display is much better than ours on the Poco F1.

Front, it's all performance. Notched and the AMOLED screen is seamless, as on the Asus 6Z. Where can you ask a selfie camera? Well, just like the OnePlus 7 Pro and Vivo V15 Pro, the Redmi K20 Pro also uses a motorized pop-up module to adjust the selfie camera.

Interestingly, Xiaomi's engineers did some creative thinking and placed LED lights on the right and left sides of the selfie camera module, advertising the character's dash on the phone.

The notification light also has a place on the upper surface of the selfie camera module.

For build quality, there are no flakes or creeks in the body. The Gorilla Glass 5 Protection on the front and rear is also a confidence booster. The handset is not water resistant certified, but has P2I nanocoating for splash resistance. Xiaomi bundles a rubberized textured case in the box, which is worth appreciating.

If I had to nitpick, the shiny design of the Redmi K20 Pro would have easily caught finger smoothies. It is heavy at 190 grams. And if you are upgrading from other Redmi phones, you can miss IR Blaster on K20 Pro.

In terms of performance, there is hardly anything to complain about the Redmi K20 Pro. For anyone who doesn't know, the 7nm process-based Snapdragon 855 that drives the handset is currently the best Qualcomm chipset and has a triangular cluster architecture. There is a peak performance core at 2.84GHz, followed by some performance cores at 2.41GHz, and the four most power-efficient cores at 1.78GHz.

The best combination of Qualcomm SoC, Adreno 640GPU, 6g RAM and fast 64GB storage (UFS 2.1) makes me very sad and able to handle every app or game.

When I was using the K20 Pro as my daily driver, it responded well to almost everything. The UI feels responsive and application loaded without any hiccups. Xiaomi claims that there is a custom Graphene cooling technology that can keep the system cool to 8 ° C.

Playing the PUGB mobile with maximum game settings on the Mi K20 Pro was a great experience and we did not experience any disturbances in performance. In controlled room temperature, there were no signs of overheating.

Redmi K20 Pro Battery life

Battery life is amazing and I am constantly getting 7-8hrs of screen time. The battery will last up to 2 days even with medium-heavy usage. The standard 18W charger in the box is too fast for my needs. It usually takes 100–11min for 0–100%. This time the 25W charger will cut 20mins and cut your pocket by 1k: P.

Redmi K20 Camera Review

The Redmi K20 Pro camera is fairly full on paper. In line with modern major trends, it brands the triple rear sensor. Of the three, there is a 48MP (f / 1.75) IMX586 primary sensor, paired with a 13MP (f / 2.4) ultra-wide one and 8MP (f / 2.4) telephoto lens. For selfies, there is a 20MP selfie camera that pops every time you need it.

The 48MP primary camera is the same that Xiaomi works on its Redmi Note 7 Pro. The primary camera will essentially function as a 12MP sensor with very large 1.6 sizem-sized pixels. There is also a dedicated 48MP mode, just in case you need to print a billboard.

There is no optical image stabilization (OIS) or electronic stabilization for cameras. Now let's look at some camera samples taken with Redmi K20 Pro cameras:

The Redmi K20 Pro camera manages to capture good pictures under most circumstances. It has a decent dynamic range but in harsh light, the highlights tend to fly slightly up.
