REVVL 5G – Pros and Cons! (T-Mobile/Metro)

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with t-mobile revel 5g pros and cons so let's get started so these are my pros and cons and best and worst features about the t-mobile revel 5g first we'll go over my top five pros and then we'll go over my top five cons the first thing that i really like about this phone is the display so with this device we are getting a 6.53 inch display the display itself is ips lcd

But it is 1080p we're getting a ppi of 395 and a 19 and a half by nine aspect ratio now one of the benefits of that aspect ratio is that the display on here is more narrow and tall allowing you to see more of your social media feed in one frame or more of a website as well so there's definitely a lot of benefits when it comes to having a taller display if you're trying to use your phone for content consumption in addition to that despite the display being lcd it does feature very good colors

And decent viewing angles as well so i think things look very sharp on here and it makes this phone feel like a very premium handset so i don't have any complaints the second pro is the cameras so with the revel 5g we are getting a 16 megapixel front-facing camera and then on the rear we're getting a triple camera setup with a 48 megapixel main camera an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle camera and a 5 megapixel macro camera but here's how things look with the regular camera on the device

Then from here we can also switch over to the ultra wide angle camera to fit a lot more content into the frame and then by going over to the more tab we have a bunch of different options including super macro so with super macro we can get extremely close up and have things be in really good detail then from here we can go over to portrait mode we can also use portrait mode for the front facing camera as well so we get those nice blurred out backgrounds so in general the cameras on the revel 5g

Are certainly very capable and you can definitely take some very nice looking pictures so i'm certainly a big fan of that now with the t-mobile level 5g we're getting gigabytes of internal storage and if that's not enough for you we also get microsd card expansion so that's definitely a really nice thing to see and what's interesting too is that the base model iphone 11 that sells for 6.99 still has 64 gigabytes of storage so that's pretty amazing

That this phone is a fraction of the price of the iphone 11 but we're getting double the amount of storage here the fourth pro about the t-mobile revel 5g is the ram and processor so with this phone we're getting six gigabytes of ram and we're getting the qualcomm snapdragon 765. so those specs certainly make this phone an upper mid-ranger but in reality this phone will definitely be able to get the job done for the majority of people out there whether you're creating content

Doing some light video editing doing gaming as well or if you just want to sit back relax watch some videos go on social media this phone will get the job done for you now of course there are better processors out there but you're going to be paying a thousand dollars or more to get that processor so considering that you can get the revel 5g for a very affordable price and then in addition to that get very good performance that certainly makes this phone a winner

And then finally the last pro but there are many others i just want to give you my top five for this video is that we're getting a very beefy battery so the battery with this phone is 4500 milliamp hours we're getting reverse charging as well which is pretty interesting so if you get a usbc otg cable you can plug one end into this phone and then connect the other end to another phone or another electronic device and this phone's battery will power that

Device so that's pretty interesting now that's a feature that i feel like not too many people are really going to use in real life but it still is a unique feature that you can't find with too many other phones especially in this price range but now that we've gone over the top five pros about the phone let's now cover the top five cons now i do want to be clear here this phone is a good phone in fact it was very tough for me to come up with a list of cons

About it but despite that i still want to give you my top five weaker points about this phone maybe things that could be improved for the next generation so let's get into it the first one definitely has to be the bezels so the bezels are certainly not the worst i've ever seen but the bottom bezel is pretty large i would have liked to see this shrunken down a little bit to kind of mimic the form factor of the google pixel 4a for example and then even the bezel on the top and

Even the side is a little bit bigger compared to some of the competition including the galaxy a51 5g so this form factor is not a deal breaker but i feel like if they would have slimmed things down a little bit the phone would have looked even more high-end the second con about this phone is the build materials now the phone does feel high quality and it is nice and durable so that's awesome but besides the display the phone is completely made out of plastic so we have a plastic band

Running around the sides of the phone and then the material on the back is plastic as well so if you like plastic then i suppose you'll really like this about the phone but if you are looking for a more premium feeling device then you might want to spend more money and get something else the third con with this phone is the rear mounted fingerprint sensor so the good news is that the fingerprint sensor is nice and fast and accurate and also we do get face unlock which is a good thing to see as well

But other competitors like the galaxy a515g feature in display fingerprint sensors which is definitely a more modern technology and having a feature like that with the phone like the a515g or even the regular a51 does make things feel a bit more premium but from a function standpoint the fingerprint sensor does still function perfectly fine on the back of the phone so if you don't mind that then it is here for you my fourth con

And i know some people might say this is kind of nitpicking is that we have the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack on the top of the phone so other devices like the a515g have it on the bottom and that's really the place that i prefer the jack to be at and the reason for that is because if you have your headphones plugged in and you want to put the phone in your pocket you have to awkwardly put the phone in bottom first so that the wire is able to stick up and if you're holding the phone like this that's just kind of an awkward

Thing to do and if you're like me when you put your phone in your pocket usually you go head first because you're already holding the phone this way so you go in this motion but if you have the headphones plugged in then you can't really do that it's pretty awkward and not nearly as convenient so i know it's a little thing but it does make a big difference for the usability for many people and then finally the last con about the revel 5g is that there's no wireless charging now

There are many people out there that don't use wireless charging at all even with phones that support it and i understand that but with the way things are heading we're getting more and more cars where the center console features a wireless charger we're getting desks and tables with built-in wireless chargers as well and i really feel like wireless charging at least to some extent is the future so having wireless charging with this phone would have been a good thing and if for

Some reason you happen to damage the charging port then having wireless charging is a good backup plan so i feel like a feature like wireless charging wouldn't be too much to incorporate at least price wise into this phone but they did choose not to include it now before we end the video there are a few other benefits about this phone that i do want to point out and i do want to recognize the first one is that we are getting 4k video recording with this phone

Which is definitely a nice thing to see i remember it wasn't too long ago that 4k video recording was something that you only got with very expensive flagship phones but now a premium mid-ranger like the revel 5g also gives us 4k video recording another perk with this phone too is that we do get nfc so if you do like to make mobile payments for example then you are able to do it here with the phone in fact that's pretty funny because the

Surface duo which is like a 1400 folding phone does not have nfc but we are getting it here with the revel 5g and then finally i did want to give a shout out to the software here on the device definitely a very good software experience things run nice and quick and it pretty much is a stock variant of android which i'm definitely a big fan of but these are my pros and cons about the t-mobile revel 5g i hope you enjoyed this video and if you did give it a thumbs up

But my name is kevin and i will see you in the next video
