This Redmi k20 pro supports a 6.39-inch AMOLED display which makes it the first Redmi smartphone with an AMOLED display. It is an FHD+ HDR panel and has very good viewing angles and proper brightness to be visible in any conditions. Let’s take a look at xiaomi k20 pro reviews and specifications.

Redmi K20 pro supports triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor.

Pros and Cons of xiaomi k20 pro


As you know every coin has two sides one good and one bad. The same rule applies to the Redmi K20 Pro. It also has its pros and cons. Let’s discuss some of them :

Pros

Huge Display With AMOLED Display

The Redmi k20 pro has an edge-to-edge 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen with an 86 percent screen-to-body ratio and is so much better than what Xiaomi’s previous flagships in the country offered.
The screen has a native full HD+ resolution with a 19:5:9 aspect ratio. Being an AMOLED panel it offers infinite contrast which means the dark mode looks appealing on the phone. The user can schedule it to turn on/off or continuously keep it on.
The k20 pro screen is bright, vivid and as sharp as the best available options in the segment. Also, MIUI 10 has controls to adjust contrast and color tones under display settings.

Battery Life

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro takes power from a 4,000 mAh battery. With normal day-to-day usage, it lasts through a day. With more demanding use, the battery depletes fast. Overall, I am happy with the mileage we are getting from Redmi k20 pro. The device supports Quick Charge 4+ out of the box which means it can handle much faster charging.
However, Xiaomi gives only an 18W charger. There aren’t many QC 4.0 chargers available in case you wish to buy one separately. Wireless charging fans will be disappointed with Xiaomi.

Performance

Redmi k20 pro uses flagship-grade Snapdragon 855, there wasn’t really doubt as to the incredible performance of the Redmi K20 Pro. Everything whether it is standard multitasking or running heavy games like PUBG, the K20 Pro breezes through without breaking a sweat.

Camera

The Redmi K20 Pro camera Conforming to modern flagship trends, it brandishes triple rear camera sensors. Out of the three, there is a 48MP (f/1.75) IMX586 primary sensor, grouped with a 13MP (f/2.4) ultra-wide one and an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto lens. For selfie lovers, there is a 20MP selfie camera that pops up every time you need it.
The 48MP primary camera is the same one that Xiaomi employs on its Redmi Note 7 Pro.

There is no optical image stabilization (OIS) or any form of electronic stabilization for the cameras.
The Redmi K20 Pro camera captures good pictures in most conditions. It has a decent dynamic range but in harsh light, the highlights tend to blow up slightly.

Cons

  • The camera of Redmi k20 pro is quite good but it struggles a bit in low light situations.
  • We also have the MIUI that has inbuilt ads going on.
  • Though the cameras allow you to shoot awesome videos due to lack of OIS, you will get shaky footage.
  • The battery is definitely good enough and also has fast charging but you only get an 18w fast charger, not the 27w one.

Conclusion

xiaomi k20 pro

Xiaomi proudly unveiled the Redmi K20 Pro in front of an eagerly waiting customers and it stunned all of Xiaomi’s ‘Mi Fans’ as well as regular phone users. Even though the debate was raging on over the price, the Redmi K20 Pro got off to a good start. The Redmi K20 Pro at that time had a stunning design and flagship-grade specifications to offer at a price that could only fetch your phones with midrange specifications. Redmi K20 Pro is the cheapest phone using the best of Qualcomm’s 2019 chip.

However, the Redmi K20 Pro impressed me a lot right. Coming from a OnePlus 7T Pro, I had some reservations about the Redmi K20 Pro, especially about its performance, the cluttered MIUI interface, and the camera performance. However, the Redmi K20 Pro has been in my pocket ever since and I refuse to part with it.

Now, as the Redmi K30 is around the corner, I decided to share my experience with the Redmi K20 Pro. At the time of writing this piece, Redmi K20 Pro is still my primary phone and I don’t see any other phone replacing it in the next few months. There are good reasons for that.

I hope my Redmi K20 Pro reviews are helpful for you.
