T-Mobile REVVL 4 – Hands On!

by birtanpublished on November 23, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my hands-on and first impressions video of the t-mobile revel four so let's get started so this is the t-mobile revel 4. now i bought this phone yesterday over at metro by t-mobile and the phone is being offered by both metro and regular t-mobile now the official price for the device is 120 bucks but definitely make sure to see what various promos are being offered as i'm sure the majority of people that actually get this phone will not be

Paying the full price but with all that said let's take a look and see what's included in the box and i did already set up the phone for the sake of saving time and we'll take a look at that too now here is the box the phone does come in you can see right here revel four now this is one of three rebel phones to make their way over to t-mobile and metro the previous rebel phones have been very popular by the way so i'd imagine that this device will also be popular as well

But lifting the lid here and by the way this is a pretty nice box we do have the phone right here we'll put this off to the side for a second and we'll see what else we get so it looks like we get a top packet here so we'll open this up we have the quick start guide and we have the sim card removal tool then getting deeper into the box here we have a usbc cable for charging and data transfer this looks like a really nice cable i like how it's braided that's something that you don't see too

Often from carrier devices so that's certainly more of a premium type of thing to see and then we do have the wall adapters no headphones not that i really wanted them anyway but you can see the wall adapter does have the t-mobile logo on it it is usb of course and it is a 10 watt charger now here is the t-mobile revel for itself now this device features a pretty large 6.22 inch display the display itself is lcd it's 720p at 720×1520 it features a ppi of 270. now one interesting thing is

That this phone is advertised to have an 18×9 aspect ratio but based off of the display resolution this phone has a 19 by 9 aspect ratio so i'm not sure if they made a mistake or what's going on with that and it definitely looks like it's 19 by nine by the way it doesn't really look like 18 by nine so i'm not really sure what the mystery is behind that i like the form factor of course we are getting a notch up top we're getting a decently thick bottom bezel as well but at the same time the display looks good it looks nice and crisp the colors are

Pretty decent as well so for a lower end android device this certainly seems to be delivering more than what i expected now up top here again we have that notch but in the notch is a 5 megapixel front-facing camera now this device features 32 gigabytes of internal storage with micro sd card expansion there's no wireless charging with the phone but we do get a fingerprint sensor on the back and we also get face unlock which is pretty cool to have as well

We'll give the fingerprint sensor a try nice and quick there let's try it out one more time yeah very fast with that fingerprint sensor which is great the device features a 13 megapixel camera on the back so just one camera so there's no portrait mode either that's a bit disappointing but that is a feature that you do get with the revel 4 plus which i'll be covering in a separate video now with the t-mobile level 4 we're getting 2 gigabytes of ram and the mediatek helio a22 processor now neither of those two things are too

Impressive but so far i've been pretty happy with the performance of the phone of course it's not the fastest phone out there ever but it seems like they did a good job with the software optimization which can definitely make a very big difference now i did run a benchmark test here with the phone and i'll show you the score i got from that and you can see i got an overall score of 118 for the single core and 515 for the multi-core so what i recommend doing is running this test on your current

Device using geekbench 5 and then see how those scores compare to these scores to see if this phone really is going to be a performance upgrade for you or not so here's how things look with the camera by the way so this is with the rear camera of course now we can zoom in if we want to this is a digital zoom and then we can flip over to the front-facing camera to take selfies so i'm definitely looking forward to going out and taking a variety of different photos and videos

To really get a good idea of the quality of the cameras on this device to include my full review video now with the t-mobile level 4 video recording does max out at 1080p at 30 frames per second which is fine i don't expect too much from the phone in this price range and with this device they don't say what the battery capacity is and i've installed some third-party apps to try to see what it is and i can't tell either but they do advertise this phone as having up to 19 hours of talk time

So if i had to guess i'm sure they're giving us at least a three thousand million power internal battery so it definitely has to be somewhere so it definitely needs to be somewhere around there and then there's no nfc with this phone which does make it a bit different from the revel four plus which does have nfc but now that we've gone over the specification highlights of this phone let's take a closer look at the hardware so i already talked quite a bit about the front panel here and again you know we do have a pretty

Thick bottom bezel and we do have a notch up top but in general i do feel like it's a decent looking phone and i don't have too many complaints about it i mean it looks like something that probably could have launched last year it's not really a 2020 type of design but it's also still very functional now the phone is made completely out of plastic besides the front display panel but that's fine the phone itself does feel very solid

On the left side of the device with the slot for the micro sd card and sim card then on the right we have the power button and volume button then up top we have the noise cancelling microphone and 3.5 millimeter headphone jack then on the bottom of the phone we have the microphone speaker and we have the usbc port for charging and data transfer now taking a look at the back of the device we have the camera module flash we have the fingerprint sensor and then we have the t-mobile logo right there now this material on the back is a

Matte finish it does kind of pick up grease a little bit but nowhere near how a reflective back would so in general i think it's a pretty good looking phone the material at least visually almost reminds me a little bit of the pixel 4a which is pretty interesting as well but i'm definitely very happy about the t-mobile level four i think it's going to be a decent budget low end option for many people out there of course i am gonna have to use the phone a bit more

Before i have my full opinions about it and all of that will be in the review but again i hope you enjoyed the video if you did like it give it a thumbs up make sure to sub to the channel and stay on the lookout for a variety of other videos about this device but this is the t-mobile revel 4 my name is kevin and i will see you in the next one
