Blackview is a brand that we had talked about before when we analyzed the Blackview A10 and the Blackview BV9000 Pro, so you should already know the features of this range designed for the average user who only needs the right amount of a smartphone without going further, and is that the Blackview A20 is presented as a solid entry-level model in phablet format, which will offer us an experience very similar to phones that are part of the mid-range, thanks to its dual 5 megapixel camera, Together with its MTK6580 processor, this phone is designed to meet the expectations of the average user, who does not want to spend too much and needs a smartphone for basic tasks such as Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp.
Blackview A20: Design
The Blackview A20 has a sober design that is somewhat particular reminiscent of what we are used to seeing in Huawei devices a few years ago, in presentations of matt black, gold and sky blue, with rounded edges that make more easy grip on the hand, with the difference that the Blackview A20 has a dual camera, with all these characteristics you could say that this phone has a really familiar design, so that although it does not upset, does not bring anything new, but it manages to fulfill its objective of being a mobile range of entry at a good price.
Blackview A20: Screen
In this section, we will define how good is the screen of the Blackview A20, which is a 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel, with a modest resolution of 480 x 960, although it is not the best in the market, this screen offers us a Decent quality of visualization, if you do not intend to demand the best definition, remember that we have 50 “inch TVs with a full HD resolution and this does not make them look really bad. Everything depends on the consumer’s demand.
Blackview A20: Hardware
The Blackview A20 has as its heart a Mediatek 6580 processor, an old acquaintance which has 4 cores with a frequency of 1.3 GHz, which is very popular within this range of smartphones due to its low cost and good performance, which makes it the main candidate for these constructions, evidently this processor will come with a well-known GPU Mali 400 MP2, which while not providing the most current performance, is enough to run most of the basic games.
On the other hand the Blackview A20 will have 1GB of RAM, however, this will not be a problem thanks to Android Go, which is specially designed for devices with 1GB of RAM and few resources, so we are sure that this device will have a capacity high enough to run all those applications essential for us in our daily use, also has 8Gb of storage, of which if we subtract the space occupied by the system (512 MB) and applications, we will have at least about 6 Gb personal use, which is also not bad for a smartphone within this range.
Blackview A20: Connectivity
The Blackview A20 works with the most popular bands in 2G: GSM 1800MHz, GSM 1900MHz, GSM 850MHz, GSM 900MHz, and in 3G with: WCDMA B1 2100MHz, WCDMA B8 900MHz, with these bands should be enough to have connectivity in almost any part of the world, taking into account that most of the operators already have optimized their support to all 3G bands available, this smartphone can use 2 SIM simultaneously, however, it is not specified if in both of them we can use 3G simultaneously .
In addition, this smartphone supports 802.11b / g / n wifi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and of course, also has the standard sensors of most Android devices (proximity, acceleration and brightness), so this phone should have no problems for normal use in applications that require them, and finally, thanks to the connection of the N wifi of the Blackview A20, we can navigate at speeds of up to 300 Mbps.
Blackview A20: Cameras
The configuration of the camera of the Blackview A20, is somewhat curious, it is a double camera, where one of them is 5.0 megapixels and the other 0.3 MP, so we doubt that this camera really has the features offered by the double cameras of other devices, however, one of the 2 cameras is able to offer a decent quality for an input device, while the other is a secondary adornment sensor.
Now, in the front we find a 2-megapixel camera capable of taking photos with a resolution of 1600 x 1200, fulfilling a minimum quality for all the selfies you want to take, as long as it complies with a well-lit environment.
Blackview A20: Battery
The Blackview A20 has a 3000mAh battery, so the phone should last at least a full day of use and at least 3 or 4 hours in continuous use, we would be talking about a standard duration, among the phones in this range, that does not leave us short, or with power to spare.
