Cameras: Losing Out Here?

For selfies, Realme Narzo 20 Pro has a 16-megapixel primary camera with f2.1 aperture inside the punch-hole setup.
Shots taken by the primary 48MP sensor come out with a lot of details and colours. Photos taken with the ultra-wide angle camera lose out in detail in difficult conditions. There’s noise in the photos in low light. The colour tones are not distorted by the camera and most shots have well balanced colours.
Battery, Fast Charging: The Big Winner?
Realme Narzo 20 Pro is backed by a sizeable 4,500mAh battery with 65W SuperDart Charge technology support. The 65W charging will top up the battery in less than 40 minutes via the USB-C port on the Narzo 20 Pro. The 4,500mAh battery on Narzo 20 Pro can last for a day with more than moderate usage.
