Nokia XR20 is hefty and weighty (171.6 x 81.5 x 10.6 mm, weight 248 g), but it is impossible not to pay tribute: the smartphone is stylish. Looks very good. Not loudly, like most B-branded Chinese, but calmly and brutally

It's an unusual moment on the body of the smartphone with unusually many buttons. Firstly, the Google Assistant button (you can only disable, you can not reassign). Secondly, there is an additional customizable button on the top end (you can assign various actions for a short and long press).


The smartphone has an IPS LCD panel measuring 6.67 inches and a resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels. The smartphone has the same screen as the Nokia X20.

Accordingly, in the sun, 550 nits are enough to work quite well. However, for 100% comfortable work, it is better when the screen is 800 nits. Given that the Nokia XR20 is intended for outdoor use, such brightness would be optimal. But for this, you need an AMOLED screen. The Nokia XR20 uses Corning's best protective glass at the moment– Gorilla Glass Victus.

Qualcomm, of course, planted a pig to its partners, deciding to breathe new life into the 400 series of chipsets. People are used to the fact that 400 is low-performance garbage. Instead, it is better to take MediaTek. Nokia X20 is equipped with a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G. For me, the Snapdragon 480 5G is a beautiful chipset

Battery life

The smartphone has a Li-Po battery of 4630 mAh. It's funny that inside the Nokia X20, the battery capacity is designated as 4470 mAh. I assume that the batteries are identical. It's just that the minimum value is indicated for one device and the other - the maximum.
