First impressions of the Realme UI: Realme phones look premium now


Realme has started rolling out the Realme UI update to a few phones in India.

When one thing is centered a lot by phone manufacturers these days, the user experience will be right. A year ago Samsung overhauled it with OneUI for her phones and now other Chinese brands are following. Realme, which is comparatively a baby to the industry’s grown-up, has relied for its software on Oppo’s parent company, but this year it is going forward with its own UI. Madhav Sheth, CEO of the company, spoke a while back about it, and it is finally here as the Realme UI.

It sounds like a big deal for Realme users, given that the company has been talking about it a lot on social media. However, it’s essentially an Android skin that Realme has pasted on top of Oppo’s ColorOS 7. Realme says it has made a couple of changes in its skin to suit the Indian users more. The biggest change is stated to be a stock Android-inspired UI design while others involve some bits inspired by what Samsung and Xiaomi have been doing so far. Samsung overhauled it for its OneUI phones a year ago, and now other Chinese brands are following it.

Realme has just started rolling out the Realme UI update and since I happened to have a Realme XT lying around, I got a chance to experience it. Is it something you should be excited about? Read on to find out.

Does the Realme UI make your old Realme phone look pretty good?

That’s the question I’ve been asked by many Realme users since it was revealed. As I said, the Realme UI is basically skin on top of ColorOS 7 and, in the main, it makes old Realme phones look fine.
The last time I used the Realme phone was the Realme X2 and while the phone was good, the ColorOS 6 UI made it hard to live with, particularly with all the bloat and weird iOS-inspired UI elements.
Realme UI doesn’t get rid of the bloat (oh come on, do you think the Chinese are going to change that way?) but it manages to get the bulk of it out of your sight.

Let’s start with your home screen. References to stock Android are noticeable here, particularly with the rounded icons and the Google search bar under the dock. If you don’t like it, you can get the hell out of there. Weirdly, the default home screen settings feature a different Google Search bar at the top— I can’t see the point of it.

The Quick Action button on each app icon (long-press on the app icon) has also been updated to enable you to use it even more. The UI layout looks a lot like Android stock, too. The default icon set is far from what you see on the stock with Android, but it’s tasteful compared to ColorOS 6. Realme also offers Google Pi’s’ At a Glance’-inspired widget from the Google Pixel devices. All this clubbed with the new and more colorful wallpapers means you have a home screen that doesn’t feel hastily done anymore.

The app drawer itself has the app icons spread out. The app icon itself is now bigger, and the new layout makes it much easier for the eyes than before. There’s a local search bar on the top to quickly type and search for the app you want. The quick action button on phones (long-press on the app icon) is also present here, which is a nice touch.

The updated tray is getting a major overhaul. Gone are the squarish icons, and they lie circular icons in their place. The concept of the notification tray seems heavily inspired (or may I say copied) by Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 and Samsung’s one UI. But, it’s done tastefully and it helps to make life easier on the run. The notification now changes to the Dark Mode button that you can use to switch to the all-black UI- no more diving deep into the Settings menu.

The Settings menu in itself has been redesigned to look more like MIUI 11, Samsung’s OneUI and the stock Android interface. The layout remains similar to ColorOS 6 bit it is now a more pleasant area to hang out.

Most of the Realme additions have had big changes in design and all of them on Samsung phones seem to have taken scoops of inspiration from One UI. The Game Space app now looks cleaner and easier to use than before. The Dialler app gets Realme UI keys and loses the Favorites list. The camera app also gets a major overhaul and feels more like the iOS camera app than before. Is that easier

Realme finally adds customizable Always-On Display widgets to talk about inspiration, and if you have a Realme phone with an AMOLED display, you can easily use it. Realme has also introduced a few new animations for the fingerprint unlock feature, but I believe these are reserved only for the phones that support the fingerprint scanner technology in-display.

Is Realme UI having the phone faster?

Theoretically, as it’s based on Android 10, it should improve performance over the long run.
My Realme XT is my secondary phone at the moment and I don’t have a dozen of my highly useful apps on it, so the phone feels good for now but there aren’t enough apps on it to put the load on. However, even with a few apps, I noticed a considerable amount of battery drain and if you switch on the Always On Display, the battery drops at an alarming rate and on the Realme XT, it is difficult to make it to the end of the day if you are browsing social media or websites.

Realme UI first impressions

The Realme UI is what Realme should have introduced ever since it launched its first phone. It’s great to see that you get a different user experience on Realme phones from another similarly priced Oppo phone for the first time. The UI has been done tastefully and even though it takes massive inspiration from Samsung’s OneUI, Xiaomi’s MIUI and Google’s Pixel UI, it ends up delivering an experience that’s certainly better than what it was with ColorOS 6. There’s still room for improvement- I still wish Realme finds a way to get rid of all the bloat as well as the unnecessary stuff from the OS and make it lighter. Realme also needs to optimize the OS for power efficiency. That said, as a first step towards building its own ecosystem of services, the Realme UI is highly impressive.

Kia Seltos: The BOLD SUV


Kia Motors now has a firm foot in the Indian automotive market gate. Their first item is-Kia Seltos, surprise surprise, a compact SUV, rivaling the likes of the Tata Harrier, the Mahindra XUV, and the Jeep Compass. If you have held off your vehicle purchasing choices until you have more clarity on Kia, your wait is over. If you’re wondering where to hand over the check-the vehicle has just been revealed, not started. So information about its cost at this stage is strictly speculative. However, considering its rivalry, the Seltos are likely to be within the Rs 11-Rs 17 lakh.

Kia Seltos Latest Updates

Finally, Kia Motors took the wraps off the Seltos and it looks true to the SP idea that was presented at the 2018 Auto Expo. The Kia Seltos has been specifically intended and produced for the Indian market and looks promising as a general package. The Seltos ‘ general design language is aggressive and a sharp line on the face and shoulder helps shape its bulges aesthetically. The face features the broad Tiger nose grill and it is surrounded by chrome. Sleek LED headlamps, DRLs, bold claddings that integrate silver skid plates and angular detailing on the face and hood add a feeling of modernity to the design.

A bit of Creta’s flavor is also noticeable on the side, especially with the way pillars have been designed. However, the rising window line and sculpting on the rear haunches are unique. The rear of the car looks very urban and the tailgate is aesthetically segmented, giving almost equal area to the raked windscreen and lower sections. Elements like sleek chrome bar which insets into the tail lamps and dual exhaust finished in faux silver add to the looks as well. What also builds upon the contemporary looks are in-trend elements like the dual-tone roof, silver roof rails and 17-inch machined alloy wheels.

The big news is that with two separate design models-Tech Line and GT Line-Kia will make the Seltos accessible. This is the first time that a model will be accessible in a dual trim option in the compact SUV segment. While the Tech Line will concentrate more on premium looks and characteristics in line with convenience, the GT Line will be more youthful and will have more creative characteristics. The Kia Seltos is also a connected car and yes, as its sister company Hyundai has introduced this very idea in the Venue subcompact SUV, it was quite anticipated now. So, after the MG Hector, the Seltos becomes the second compact SUV connected.

Kia calls it UVO and you can, just like we’ve seen in the Venue, use your phone to operate the car’s ignition, AC controls and more. There’s also Apple Carplay and Android Auto on offer. That’s not the end of the segment-first features yet, the Seltos SUV also gets an 8-inch heads up display which gives you all the information you need without being distracted. There’s also a sound mood lamp, rear sunshade curtain and a 7-inch color TFT unit for the instrument console, which adds to the premiumness of the Seltos.


Kia is preparing to launch the Seltos in India in the month of August this year and between Rs. 11 lakh and 17 lakh is anticipated to be priced. The new compact SUV is also fitted with a package of first characteristics in the segment, along with a lovely design, and has an impressive variety of engine and gearbox choices. Kia will be offering the Seltos in India with a 1.4-liter GDI Turbo petrol engine and a 1.5-liter diesel engine, both compliant with BS6. Gearbox alternatives include an automatic six-speed torque converter, a dual-clutch (DCT) seven-speed transmission, a CVT gearbox, and a manual six-speed transmission.

Top functions of Android Q that you need to understand


Google typically launches a developer preview for its next version of Android in March, followed by a public beta that anyone can join in May when it hosts its annual Google I / O conference.

This year, by releasing its first developer preview and public beta on the same day on March 13, 2019, Google decided to do stuff a bit differently. Beta 2 with some bug fixes and fresh characteristics was published on April 3. This was accompanied by Beta 3 initiated by Google during its annual I / O meeting on May 7, and Beta 4 made its debut on June 5. Recently, on July 10, Beta 5 fell.

In addition to Pixel phones, you can also sign up for the Android Q beta for the OnePlus 6T, Sony Xperia Z3, and LG G8. In fact, the beta is live for 20 phones across 12 manufacturers. After logging into your account and choosing the device you want to enroll in the beta, you’ll receive an over-the-air update on your phone to download and install Android Q.

Here are the top 15 features

Like we expect with every new Android version, Android Q is chock-full of all sorts of new features. We’ll likely be introduced to even more as beta updates are released throughout the year leading up to the final release, but even right now, there’s a lot to unpack.

We’ll dive into some of the biggest ones below, but if you want a recap of all the main highlights, be sure to check out the roundup below.

The iconic back button is going away

The back button, a navigation staple of Android, is officially going away with Android Q.

Following up on Pie’s gesture-based navigation that kept the aging back button around, Android Q now features a fully gesture-based method of navigation. Swiping up goes home, a swipe up and hold reveals the multitasking menu, and a swipe from the left or right edge of your screen goes back.

That’s a pretty big shift for Android navigation, and according to Google, it’s evolving app design so that the first swipe will open a side menu and a double swipe will take you back.

There’s finally a system-wide dark mode!


After years of begging and praying, Google’s confirmed that Android Q will have a system-wide dark theme that can be turned on and off at any time via a Quick Settings toggle.

Even better, Google also created a new API that developers can use to have their apps go to a dark theme as well when the system-wide one is turned on.

New theming options

Being able to customize our phones to the fullest extent is one of the things that makes Android so great, and with Android Q, something exciting could be happening on this front.

Initially found in the developer options in Beta 1, there are settings to change the accent color of the entire UI. As of July 10 and Beta 5, the available colors include:

  • Blue (default)
  • Black
  • Green
  • Purple
  • Cinnamon
  • Ocean
  • Space
  • Orchid

In Beta 2, a new app appeared called “Pixel Themes.” While not functional quite yet, it’s assumed that this is where these customization tools will live in the final version.

Live Caption transcribes media locally in real-time

Closed captions are crucial for deaf and hard-of-hearing people to understand what’s being said in a video, podcast, game, or any other form of media where words are spoken, and to make sure these are available virtually everywhere, Android Q comes with a feature called “Live Caption.”

Live Caption is able to provide real-time captions for just about anything on your phone where someone is talking, and the best part is that it happens locally on-device. In other words, no internet connection of any kind is required.

You can turn Live Caption on through Android Q’s accessibility settings, and for a lot of users, this will be a godsend.

Big changes coming to permissions

Privacy is a bigger concern than ever before, and with Android Q, Google is implementing some new features for app permissions to help give you a better understanding and more control over what exactly apps on your phone have access to.

According to Google’s blog post, apps that ask for your location will now reveal a new pop-up asking you if you want to grant location access all the time, only when the app’s being used, or not at all.

Furthermore, Google notes that:

In Android Q, the OS gives users even more control over apps, controlling access to shared files. Users will be able to control apps’ access to the Photos and Videos or the Audio collections via new runtime permissions. For Downloads, apps must use the system file picker, which allows the user to decide which Download files the app can access.

The “Permissions usage” page in Settings has been completely overhauled to show which permissions are being used by how many of your apps, the ability to filter by permissions to see which apps are using certain ones, and a new UI for the “App info” page.

An improved share menu

Android’s share menu has been a hot mess for a while now. The core functionality is fine, but it’s regularly slow to open no matter what phone you’re using. Thankfully, Android Q addresses this. Google briefly mentions this in its blog post, saying that “the share UI can load instantly when it’s launched” since the shortcuts are “published in advance”, but in day-to-day use, we have a feeling this will be one of Q’s best additions.

Speaking of sharing, Android Q also introduces something called “Sharing Shortcuts.”

A Sharing Shortcut allows developers to create a new option in the share menu that will share a file/photo/etc. in a specific part of another app much faster than before.

Better support for foldable phones

2019 will be the year that foldable phones finally hit the market, and to ensure the experience of these new devices is as good as can be, Google’s optimized Android Q with foldable-specific features and experiences.

According to Google:

To help your apps to take advantage of these and other large-screen devices, we’ve made a number of improvements in Android Q, including changes to onResume and onPause to support multi-resume and notify your app when it has focus. We’ve also changed how the resizeable Activity manifest attribute works, to help you manage how your app is displayed on foldable and large screens.

These changes are obviously meant for developers, but in the end, it should result in Android Q being optimized correctly for foldable of all shapes and sizes.

What will Android Q be called?

Perhaps the most important question of all — what will Android Q be called?

There aren’t a lot of dessert names that begin with Q that immediately come to mind, but some possibilities are:

  • Queen of Puddings
  • Quiche
  • Questo
  • Quindim
  • Queijadas

We’re really stretching with a lot of those considering that many of them are desserts only known in specific countries all around the globe, so if you have any better suggestions, feel free to let us know in the comments below.

When will it be released?

On March 13, 2019, Android Q Beta 1 was launched out in the wild and made available to download on the Pixel, Pixel 2, and Pixel 3 series. Beta 2 was released on April 3, Beta 3 debuted on May 7 during Google I/O, Beta 4 arrived on June 5, and Beta 5 hit on July 10.

Now, we’re just awaiting one more beta before the final build drops sometime before Q3 is over.

Optimize Windows for better performance?


Every PC gets slow over time and getting back the ancient velocity is very simple. Caches, app residue and other variables that function as obstacles against the complete velocity of your processor and your user experience are the causes of slow processing speed.

In order to get you some ways to increase your processing speed, we collected data. Making your PC job as fresh is quite easy, you just need to follow these techniques to increase the pace of your processing:-


1Here Are Some Ways To Boost Your Processing Speed.

1. Clear Temporary Files.

Clearing temporary files is necessary to boost your system speed. You can delete your temporary file by following the steps :

2. Disk Defragmentation.

Disk Defragmentation is very important to boost your PC speed. What happens is after long usage and constant addition and deletion of data, therefore, cause fragmentation in the disk and it is very important to defragment it.

You can defragment your disk by following these steps. In windows 10 Simply search for Defragmentation to open Disk Defragmentation tool in the search box available on the Taskbar.

In other windows go to Control Panel and select Administrative Tools and then select Defragment and Optimise device tool.

3. Keep your C drive as empty as you can.

Try not to save any unnecessary files except important software in c drive and if you have any files already stored move them to other drives. Yeah, it is very convenient to simply drag and drop a file directly to the desktop but it costs your system speed.

4. Disable unnecessary Startup Programs.

Disabling unnecessary startup programs lowers the burden on your pc. These startup apps take a huge part of your processor’s resources when your pc boots up. You can disable them by using these steps.

  • Press Windows key + r.

  • Select the Startup Tab.
  • Uncheck all unnecessary services and apply the changes.

5. Change your Power Setting to Performance Mode.

Many of you may know this method but still, some don’t. Changing your battery setting in the laptop helps a lot in gaining better performance speed but your battery’s life may decrease. Follow these steps to boost your processing speed.

  • Open Control Panel.
  • Select Battery Options.
  • Select the Battery plan to High Performance.

This option has been disabled in Windows 10 because they have added it to the battery indicator in the notification panel.

AutoRuns for Windows, a free tool that you can download from the Microsoft website, shows you all of the programs and processes that run when you start Windows.

6. Change your Animation setting for Best Performance.

You can minimize your system’s animation in order to each drop of your processor’s speed. This option is not that effective because it is only useful when you want to utilize the full strength of your processor, This can be done by the following steps.

Deleting Reaming folders of uninstalled apps is a good practice. And it should be done in order to lower the burden on your computer and will boost your processing speed.

8. Uninstall Unnecessary Apps.

Uninstalling Unnecessary Apps option is always effective and should be practiced even when your PC is not slowing down. And this one of Some ways to Boost your Processing Speed.

9. Don’t Use Antivirus services.

Many of you may have already considered it a foolish option but believe me, if you have a low-end PC or you have fewer gigs of ram installed on your PC then remove anti-virus service.

Antiviruses are of generally very big sizes and they require a lot of system resources and they also keep running in the background decreasing your processor speed.

While using a PC without antivirus, you should be a little careful, but it won’t impact that much unless you download an untrusted software and have too many jobs with USBs, particularly unknown people.

So these were some methods to increase the pace of your processing. You guys can also use them to maintain it even after your PC doesn’t have some serious issues.

Here are some more ways to increase the speed of processing

18 Google Chrome Flags To make it easier to browse


Chrome is one of the world’s most popular browsers. Still, the incredible experimental characteristics concealed in this browser are only known to a few individuals. These characteristics may be concealed, but they are by no means limited. You can enable different flags of Google Chrome and boost your browser in ways you didn’t think you could.

In addition to tweaking the UI, the Chrome flags can also add fresh characteristics to your favorite browser (in this case Google Chrome).


“What Are Google Chrome Flags, Anyway?”

Google Chrome flags are prototype experimental features that are hidden in the Chrome browser for geeks and tinkerers like us. These features are not in the consumer Chrome build, that is, they are not yet released to the public. But if you like trying new things and playing around with the browser, this is for you.

How To Enable Google Chrome Flags?

Before we come to how you can enable Google Chrome flags, it is important to note that these are experimental features and may behave differently at times. Here’s a quick note from Google:

“We make absolutely no guarantees about what may happen if you turn one of these experiments on, and your browser may even spontaneously combust. Jokes aside, your browser may delete all your data, or your security and privacy could be compromised in unexpected ways.”


Now, to access Google Chrome Flags, you simply need to put “chrome://flags” or “about://flags”  in the address bar and search for the flags you need in the search box.

However, the feature list on Google Chrome flags is fairly extensive. Some of them are extremely useful, some not so much. Hence, we have put together a list of the Google Chrome flags to enable:

1.Parallel Downloading


Do the sluggish download speeds bother you? If yes, this Google Chrome flag is for you. The parallel downloading flag accelerates your download speeds. It works by creating parallel jobs in the backend of the browser.

Search for this Google Chrome flag as – #enable-parallel-downloading

2. Autoplay Policy


One of the most annoying things on the internet is when a video starts to autoplay when you open a website. It’s irritating! If you’ve always wanted to get rid of such annoyance, Chrome has the autoplay policy flag to control when an audio or video is played. Search this Chrome flag and change the setting from “Default” to “Document user activation is required”.

Search for this Google Chrome flag as – #autoplay-policy

3. Smooth Scrolling


Do you dislike little stuttering in the scroll animation of Chrome? I do. Hence, this is one of my favorites. As the name suggests, it lets the user reduce the jitters and scroll smoothly through the content. It is one of the coolest Google Chrome flags to enable.

Search for this Google Chrome flag as – #smooth-scrolling

4. Fast Tab Close

Chrome is a bit sluggish when it comes to closing tabs when multiple tabs are active. Users from around the world have reported the sluggishness. Well, time to bid adieu to those issues has come! Enable this flag to close tabs faster than before. It is one of the most useful Chrome flags to enable if improving speed is your priority.

Search for this Google Chrome flag as – #enable-fast-unload

Having twenty tabs open at once when you are not using nineteen of them is a substantial waste of memory. It slows down the PC. To solve this, enable the “automatic tab discarding” flag. It discards the tabs which are open but not in use.

However, it does not mean that this flag closes the unused tabs. It just means that the unused tabs remain asleep. It makes sure they are not using system memory until you click on them again. This is one of the most effective Chrome flags to enable.

It is anticipated that Vivo S1 will quickly be launched in India. For the launch of the new Vivo S-series phone, an official teaser video was published. The video circulating through all the Chinese company’s social media channels tells “All fresh S series coming shortly”— without revealing any particular information. To remember, the Vivo S1 was initially started back in March in China next to the Vivo S1 Pro. Recently, a tweaked phone version joined Indonesia with two different color choices, Cosmic Green and Skyline Blue.

Vivo is setting the stage for a fresh S-series phone in India according to the teaser video. Whether the new phone will be the Vivo S1 or a fresh model specifically for the Indian market, the video does not explicitly verify.


However, given the launch in Indonesia previously this week of a worldwide Vivo S1 variant, the upcoming model could be none other than the S1. It would be the next Vivo phone after the recent Indian debut of the Z1 Pro.

Vivo S1 price (expected) in India

The Vivo S1 price is yet to be revealed in India. It’s probably comparable to what Vivo announced in Indonesia, though. The smartphone was launched for the lone 4 GB RAM + 128 GB storage version at IDR 35,99,000 (approximately Rs. 17,800).

VIVO will begin selling the S1 in Indonesia on July 23, although the phone is already accessible in the nation for pre-orders.

As we mentioned, the company has first launched in China a few months ago, alongside the Vivo S1 Pro, with some distinctions from its global variant.


Vivo S1’s worldwide variant runs Android Pie with Funtouch OS 9 at the top. Also sportive is the dual-SIM (Nano) phone. Also Sports a full-HD+ 6.38-inch display (1080×2340 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop-style knot. The phone has a MediaTek Helio P65 SoC octa-core under the hood, coupled with 4 GB of RAM.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro


The Redmi K20 Pro with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC is the most affordable smartphone. But has Xiaomi cut too many corners for this price?

Xiaomi joined the Indian market in 2014 with a massive splash, selling its Mi 3 at an incredibly low cost with the then-flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. However, for a while now, the firm has focused more on its Redmi entry-level and mid-budget designs. Building on the common name of Redmi, the new Redmi K20 Pro brings Xiaomi back to high-end land. Priced from Rs. 27,999.

The latest Redmi K20 Pro dubbed the’ Flagship Killer 2.0,’ created enormous interest in India thanks to numerous leaks and teasers before its official release this week, not to mention its cost. With a Snapdragon 855 processor, this is now India’s lowest-priced smartphone, but it also has three back cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a large notch-less screen with a pop-up selfie camera, and a fascinating design. Should you worry about OnePlus? To find out, read on.

Redmi K20 Pro design

Redmi K20 Pro design We have seen in the latest past that flagships have adopted creative design solutions to achieving borderless, nonchalant displays. For example, the Asus 6Z (Review) has a rotating camera module, whereas the OnePlus 7 Pro (Review) sports a selfie pop-up camera. Of course, Xiaomi wasn’t going to be left behind. As a consequence, a pop-up selfie camera is available for the Redmi K20 Pro.

This enables the large AMOLED 6.39-inch display to dominate the smartphone’s front, offering the Redmi K20 Pro a 91.9 percent screen-to-body ratio. This is also the first AMOLED-displayed Redmi smartphone. The Redmi K20 Pro’s FHD+ HDR panel (1080×2340 pixels) is tuned to the DCI-P3 color gamut, has excellent viewing angles, and becomes bright enough to be readable outdoors.

Since it is an AMOLED panel, the Redmi K20 Pro also provides an Always-On display function that displays the time and icons of applications when the device is in standby. You can adjust the panel’s contrast and color temperature. This device also features a fingerprint scanner on display.

The Redmi K20 Pro has a glass-sandwich design at the front and back with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and a metal frame in the center which provides this phone a premium look and feel. The back glass is curved, making it easy to hold the device in the hand. Xiaomi placed the power and volume buttons on the correct side, and we discovered the volume buttons to be too big to achieve them. The energy button on our Glacier Blue review unit is outlined in red.

The Redmi K20 Pro is being offered in three colors: Glacier Blue, Flame Red, and Carbon Black.

The selfie camera pop-up module also has LEDs that light up when it comes up. It shines blue on the units of the Glacier Blue and red on the other varieties of color. Some may like the effect of light, while others may find it tacky, but it can be turned off thankfully. There is also a small window on top of the pop-up module that enables the device to use these LEDs to warn you about incoming notifications.

In addition to a secondary microphone, the Redmi K20 Pro has a 3.5 mm audio jack at the top. It has a Type-C USB port, the main microphone, a loudspeaker grille, and the SIM tray at the bottom. The phone’s left side is blank.

The phone has no IP rating, but Xiaomi says it has a P2i nano-coating and rubber-lined ports. This could assist it to survive minor splashes of water.

Xiaomi chose for a gradient finish on the back of the Redmi K20 Pro. The finish in the center is darker and our review unit transitions into a catchy blue color on the sides. The pattern has numerous arcs that are noticeable when light strikes them at the right angle. This is a fresh kind of design finish and it manages to conceal quite a bit of fingerprint smudges. However, if you don’t like gradient finishes, you might be more attracted by the Kevlar-patterned Carbon Black color variant.

Redmi K20 Pro Specifications and Software

It is now well known that the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, after all, it was called the “855 flagships” while it was being created. The Snapdragon 855 is quite common and is the first option when developing a flagship phone for many producers. It presently supports many top-of-the-line smartphones, including Asus 6Z, OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, Nubia Red Magic 3, Blackshark 2, and Oppo Reno 10X Zoom.

This popular SoC has eight CPU cores and is based on a manufacturing process of 7 nm. Xiaomi mentions using eight layers of graphite sheets to assist dissipate heat. The Redmi K20 Pro is available in two variants, one with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ram priced at Rs. 27,999, the other with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage priced at Rs. 30,999.

The Redmi K20 Pro utilizes UFS 2.1 storage which is not as quick as the OnePlus 7 twins UFS 3.0 storage. It lacks a microSD card slot, but this should not be a big issue considering that even the base variant has 128 GB of storage.

The Redmi K20 Pro offers DC dimming just like the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. This characteristic utilizes DC voltage to decrease the screen’s brightness instead of the frequently used Pulse Width modulation. This reduces flickering and may be simpler on the eyes.

The Redmi K20 pro phone has dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5, dual GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and dual 4 G VoLTE connectivity.

Like any other Redmi smartphone, the K20 Pro operates MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie. The Redmi K20 Pro supports themes that allow you to customize the UI look. It also receives a system-wide dark mode that takes advantage of the AMOLED screen to save energy and is simpler on the eyes when using the night phone.

Due to the use of Poco Launcher, which was first seen on the Poco F1 but is also accessible as a standalone app via the Play Store, this MIUI application has an app drawer. The Redmi K20 Pro also features several pre-installed applications including games such as Ludo Master and Block Puzzle Guardian, as well as Facebook, Dailyhunt, Amazon, Google Duo, Paytm, and WPS Office. Several Xiaomi applications like Mi Community, Mi Music, Mi Video, Mi Pay, Mi Store, and a Security app are also available. These applications tend to push notifications, but we have noted that these spam notifications are slightly less frequently compared to other Xiaomi phones.

The Redmi K20 Pro also features Game Boost 2.0, which claims to enhance the efficiency of gaming by handling your internet connection, decreasing latency, and enhancing the panel’s touch reaction. This Game Boost mode is triggered through the Security app, which is the last location anyone would look for. Xiaomi should have introduced it in the Settings app or provided it as a distinct stand-alone app. This mode allows users to separately adjust the panel’s touch reaction and sensitivity to repeated taps for each match. It also argues to improve visuals by brightening darker regions in games.

Gesture navigation is available as well, and you can ditch the traditional three-button Android navigation scheme in favor of swipe gestures. Xiaomi also gives you six sound effects to choose from when the camera module is being raised. Digital Wellbeing, a popular feature of Android that helps you keep tabs on your smartphone usage, was missing from the Redmi K20 Pro at the time of review.

Redmi K20 Pro output and battery life

The Redmi K20 Pro is a quick smartphone and we have not noticed any lag or stutter when using it at any stage. Loading apps is fast, and our review unit could multitask with quite a few apps running in the background with 8 GB of RAM.

The Redmi K20 Pro has both an in-display fingerprint scanner and a face recognition pop-up selfie camera. We discovered the fingerprint scanner in-display to be fast to unlock the smartphone, but it’s not as fast as the one on the OnePlus 7. The selfie camera module appears when required to scan your face and retracts after a successful scan. This makes face recognition a little slower than using the in-display fingerprint scanner. The Redmi K20 Pro also has drop protection, so the module can be retracted quickly when the phone’s gyroscope and accelerometer detect a fall.

We watched several HDR videos on YouTube that could take advantage of the HDR display. It is bright and has good viewing angles. The single bottom-firing speaker is loud but we found it to be tinny at higher volumes. We wished that this phone had stereo speakers like OnePlus 7.

The Redmi K20 Pro stands in comparison to other devices powered by similar hardware. In AnTuTu, the phone managed to score 368,332 points which places it between the Asus 6Z, which scored 355,965, and the OnePlus 7, which managed 375,219 when we tested it. In Geekbench 4’s single-core and multi-core tests, the Redmi K20 Pro scored 3,421 and 10,775 respectively.

As for graphics benchmarks, the Redmi K20 Pro managed to hit 60fps in GFXBench T-Rex and 57fps in the Manhattan 3.1 scene. This phone also scored 5,620 in 3DMark Slingshot Extreme OpenGL. We found these scores to be on par with those of the OnePlus 7.

The Redmi K20 Pro packs in a 4,000mAh battery and supports up to 27W fast charging. However, it only ships with an 18W charger in the box. Xiaomi also announced a 27W SonicCharge adapter at the Redmi K20 series launch event, and it is priced at Rs. 999. This should be on your list if you want to speed up the charging process and don’t already have a high-powered charger.
