Realme Narzo 20A: The Good Mid-Range Snapdragon 665 Chipset, New Firmware
The Realme Narzo 20A derives its power from the 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 which has eight cores. The chipset is accompanied by Adreno 610 GPU, 3GB/4GB RAM, and 32GB/64GB storage option. This mid-range chipset powers some other popular budget smartphones such as the Redmi Note 8, Realme 5s, and the Vivo U10. The device ran apps without any lags during our testing. Even with up to four apps running in the background, the device’s functionality is swift. Gaming also is decent, but we are yet to test its full potential. Software-wise, the Realme Narzo 20A has the same Android 10 OS with a Realme UI skin layout on top. The UI is identical on all the three variants. The handset comes with all the Android 10 elements including Dark Mode, gesture-based navigation, and Digital Wellbeing.
