. It has good specs with a lot of memory at around R 1000.. Brazilians still resist buy cell phones from this brand, but is it really inferior when compared to the competitors Let’s check it out? The design of the Q20 is nothing innovative. It is a simple device made of plastic that features paint with a chromatic effect in two color options: blue or white.. It is a more compact and lighter device compared to recent rivals in the entry segment. On the front. There is a drop shaped notch and protruding chin that are still common in cheaper models. At the rear. We have a triple set of cameras and another LED flash that forms a vertical row in the upper left. Corner., The biometric reader is right next to it and has good accuracy, although not the most agile.. On the right side, you will find the power button and the volume control button. While on the left side, there is a hybrid drawer to use two chips or one chip plus a memory card. At the bottom, we have an USB C port and the speaker.. Finally, there is a headphone jack at the top.. The disappointing part is that Positivo brought the Q20 with outdated technologies.. There is no Wi Fi ac or Bluetooth 5.0. Okay. It is still common to find cell phones in the range of R 1000 without these technologies. But it is good to remember that the official price of the Q20 is R 1500, and here it already competes with more complete cell phones.
. It does not bring a giant screen as it became mandatory even in recent basic phones.. The Q20 has more than 6.1quot, which is more than enough for a good experience with videos and games.. The HD screen guarantees good sharpness and the good level of brightness makes Motorola’s mid rangers jealous., Of course, no its a screen that will impress in image, but at least Positivos cell phone doesnt disappoint.. The sound part compromises the multimedia experience.. In addition to having only one sound output limiting the audio to mono, the power is only average and yet is distorted when at most. also sins in the sound balance with the lack of average, which greatly limits the experience of music.. To make matters worse, the Q20 does not come with the headset in the box.. Maybe something away potentially interested in the device is the chip Unisoc SC9863A model.. This is an old hardware, still the age of 28 nanometers, but that comes with octa core Cortex A55. That is more current than the A53 that much basic cell phone with chip MediaTek.. In our speed test focused on multi tar efas. We had acceptable performance but below others with Snapdragon.. The Q20 comes with 4 GB of RAM and can even hold some applications open. But for such a clean system, it could be even more agile when Philco P10 has similar hardware and was better in our test. In benchmarks. Do not expect high numbers, and in AnTuTu we had an average of 100 thousand points.
. It is less than what the Moto E7 Plus with Snapdragon 460 manages. However, it is above the Galaxy A02S with Snapdragon 450. Curious to know about the games. The GPU is the IMG8322, which manages to run the games well in the lowest. Configuration.. Do not expect impeccable fluidity in more demanding titles, but the Q20 until it does well in the game.. You may already be imagining that the old hardware will devour the 4000 mAh battery in no time right. We were even surprised to see that the Q20 delivers good autonomy managing to spend the whole day away from power outlets.. It doesn’t quite beat recent rivals from Motorola and Samsung, but it will be enough for most.. The recharge time could be better.. The 10 watt charger takes more than three hours to fully fill the Q20’s battery.. A quick charge of 15 minutes recovers only 12 and 30 minutes in the outlet reaches 25.. The Q20 comes with Android 10 from the factory and at the time we tested it. For this analysis, it was still with the security package for January 2021.. You can already see that support for Android updates is not the strength of Positivo, So don’t wait see Android 11 on the Q20 anytime soon. Positivo’s interface is very clean and comes with only the essentials, which is great because it occupies the least possible 128 GB of Storage., There are no extras that we find on Motorola phones, as well as a lack of customization options for the interface.
. You can even change the default of the icons by going to the Developer menu, as you can on any Android. 10 phone.. The Q20 comes with a 13 MP camera, accompanied by a 5 MP secondary with an ultrawide lens and a third 2 MP to help in the background blur. Will he be able to record good photos Difficultly. The main one even gets decent images in very favorable situations, As long as you avoid the background, sun, as the HDR is quite limited., Photos at the end of the afternoon are already quite dark, while at dusk you will suffer with images with low sharpness and lots of noise.. There is night mode that helps to minimize problems, but does not work. Miracles. Ultrawide has great blur in the corners of the photos, lower sharpness and accentuated noise. Even during the day.. The software cannot correct the distortion of the lens, not to mention that this camera suffers even more in dark places.. The third, which is responsible for the blur, does only a reasonable job and fails in portrait mode.. The front camera is capable of recording decent selfies in the sun, but has little detail when in the shade and suffers from noise in dark places. Portrait mode is almost useless with the front camera.. The Q20 is capable of recording videos in Full HD with the rear camera, and only HD with the front. Ultrawide is not able to film. The videos have the same limitation seen in the photos.
There is a lot of shaking and the colors change in tone whenever the phone needs to readjust the focus.. The audio capture is only mono and has very poor quality with muffled sound.. Were you disappointed with the Positivo Q20? Without a doubt, you can find better options in your price range, like the Moto E7 Plus, which has superior performance longer battery life and much better cameras for photos and videos.. Even the Galaxy A02S, which can now be found cheaper today, delivers a better set.. Okay, that Samsung’s was slower in our speed test, but it has much better battery and less limited cameras.. As for Philco’s P10, which has a similar configuration Well, it performs a little better battery lasts the same, but it also disappoints on camera.. What we can conclude is that the Q20 should be better for the price that Positivo asks for it.. It is already complicated to recommend it for R 1000. Imagine the full launch price.. It is a simple device that has nothing special. It is not bad at all, but there are more interesting options on the market.. The screen is nice, but the sound compromises, the multimedia experience. Performance, isn’t, bad, but don’t – expect to have all games running smoothly. Battery lasts. Well, however, takes a long time to recharge. Cameras, on the other hand, are their biggest weakness and perhaps what will drive away many potential buyers.? It is difficult to recommend the Q20 in place of a Motorola or Galaxy unless 128 GB of storage is so important to you.
