T-Mobile Revvl 4 Plus – Complete Review! (New for 2020)

by birtanpublished on November 2, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my t-mobile revel 4 plus review so let's get started now the revel 4 plus is one of three new rebel phones launched on both t-mobile and metro by t-mobile about a month and a half ago so there's this phone the revel 4 plus there's also the revel 4 which is a less expensive alternative and then finally there's the revel 5g which is the most premium phone of the three so this one is in the middle of those two devices now this phone

Features a retail price of 189 dollars but in most situations you'll likely be able to get it for a pretty significant discount stores for both t-mobile and metro are constantly offering different promotions ranging from important deals to buy one get one free so definitely make sure to check in on your local store to see what deals they're currently offering but i'd imagine that the majority of people out there probably won't even be paying the full 189 for this phone and even if you are

Getting it for 189 i feel like it still is a pretty decent option now there are some shortcomings and i will be addressing those in this video as well now with the revel 4 plus we're getting a pretty large display at 6.52 inches the display itself is lcd at 720p we're getting a ppi of 269 and a 20×9 aspect ratio now last time that i checked t-mobile's website they actually advertised this phone as having an 18×9 aspect ratio but this aspect ratio is definitely 20 by nine it's pretty tall that's for sure and i

Even took measurements of it and it is indeed 20 by nine but that's actually a better thing as i do like this form factor especially because you're able to fit more of your social media feed for example into one frame now again the display looks pretty decent of course since it isn't oled or amoled it's not going to look nearly as good in pretty much every situation but considering that it is lcd it's certainly a good lcd panel things do look nice and crisp and clear

There's a clear contrast as well with the different colors and the viewing angles are actually pretty decent here with the phone as well now up top here on the device we do have a water drop notch for the front-facing camera and that camera is 16 megapixels now stay tuned to later on in the video as i'll show you different photo and video samples from the device now with the t-mobile level 4 plus we're getting 64 gigabytes of internal storage with microsd card expansion 64 gigs with

A phone that's under 200 is also a very good thing to see especially because when you compare this phone to apple's iphone 11 which also has 64 gigs is the lowest storage option but that phone is 699 dollars it really makes it seem like you're getting a very solid deal here with the revel 4 plus and then of course if you do happen to need more storage space beyond those 64 gigs you can always put a micro sd card into the phone for extra expansion now there's no wireless charging

Unfortunately with the level 4 plus but we do have face unlock and we have a fingerprint sensor on the back i'm also very happy to see that we do indeed get face unlock here with the phone as quite a few other devices that have launched this year in the budget realm have not even offered that feature for example with the moto g fast there's no face unlock and with the lg stylo 6 there's no face and lock either but on the other hand with the galaxy a21

We do have face unlock again if you are looking for a phone with face unlock that is a budget device you do have some other options but it's certainly not something that's very widespread now on the back of this device we do have a squared off camera module and we're getting two different cameras so there's a 16 megapixel main camera and a 5 megapixel depth sensing camera now it is a bit disappointing that there is no ultra wide angle camera here with the phone especially considering that other

Devices that are actually cheaper than this such as the samsung galaxy a11 do have an ultra wide angle camera and other phones that directly compete with this phone such as the galaxy a21 and also the moto g fast all offer ultra wide angle cameras so i don't understand why we don't have an ultra wide angle camera here with the level 4 plus in some ways for me at least i feel like that could be a deal breaker but if you don't care about the ultra

Wide angle camera then i suppose that's not an issue now the good news though is that we do get portrait mode for both the rear and front cameras on this device so here's how things look through the camera app so we have a variety of different modes you can go to pro mode where there's a bunch of different customizations video mode of course auto portrait there's pano as well now in video mode you can actually record video at 4k which is pretty impressive the only

Downside though with the 4k video recording on the phone is that you are limited to five minutes of recording time and i feel like that is a bit of an annoying compromise so if you think that is gonna get in the way of your content creation then you might wanna consider a different device now with the phone we're getting four gigabytes of ram and the qualcomm snapdragon 665 processor and i've got to tell you that is a great combination at this price tag now the moto g fast which is a similarly priced rival to

This phone does also have the snapdragon 665 but with that phone we're getting three gigabytes of ram so with this phone we're getting four and then we're still getting that snapdragon 665 all at a very good price tag so i'm really excited about that this phone is going to be more powerful than the stylo 6 then the a21 and is pretty much up there performance wise with the moto g stylus which is a 300 phone now i did run a benchmark test here with the

Device so make sure you install geekbench 5 on your personal phone run the test and then compare your single core score and multi-core score to these scores now if these scores are better and especially significantly better then most likely the revel 4 plus will be a performance upgrade for you but again for the price range of this phone i feel like the processor and ram are going to give you performance that is certainly overachieving for this

Price segment so essentially the majority of people out there are going to be able to do all of their favorite tasks that they would typically do in a smartphone using this one with a good experience now with this device we're getting a beefy 4 000 million power internal battery which is great we're also getting nfc with this phone as well so you are going to be able to make mobile payments with no issues at all and we're also getting a near stock variant of android 10. so it's a very clean smooth

Well-optimized software experience so i definitely don't have any complaints but now that we've gone over the specification highlights here with the phone let's now take a closer look at the hardware now taking a look at this front panel here i'm definitely a fan of the display and then also the aspect ratio but we do have a water drop notch at the top and a pretty thick bottom bezel now the bottom bezel does have to be thick since the phone does use lcd display technology unfortunately they can't make the bezels as small as

They can with lcd that they can do with amoled so in general i think it has a pretty decent form factor nothing extremely modern and nothing extremely unique either but again it's gonna get the job done now taking a look at the left side of the phone we have the slot for the micro sd card and sim card then on the right of the phone we have the power button which does glow by the way for notifications and when the phone is plugged in and we have the volume down and volume

Up then up top we have the noise cancelling microphone and 3.5 millimeter headphone jack then on the bottom we have the speaker microphone and usb c port for charging and data transfer and then on the back of the phone we have the camera module flash fingerprint sensor and t-mobile logo now i definitely do like this color and material on the back of the phone i like how it has a wavy look to it and definitely does look pretty unique now it does pick up some fingerprints but at the same time it's not quite as

Much of a fingerprint magnet as a phone would be with a glossy back but the phone feels very solid it feels high quality and it certainly doesn't feel cheap this phone is great for browsing the web with nice smooth performance when scrolling you can easily go to other articles you can also easily zoom in as well so definitely the performance when browsing the web is awesome and again due to the taller and more narrow display you can see more text in one view here

Tap on that and now you can see that we have a variety of different options so the first thing that we can do is that if you just want to customize the revel 4 plus is a great phone for watching video content colors look really good things do look nice and crisp and clear even despite this display being just 720p another nice surprise too with this phone is the speaker quality the speaker definitely gets nice and loud and you can definitely sit back relax

Watch videos here on the phone and not be annoyed by a low quality speaker so the speaker here definitely does get the job done and i am satisfied with it now i do have the ability to crop in videos as well to fill in the entire display if you do want to get a more immersive experience now here is the box the revel 4 plus does come in now again this is the metro by t-mobile variant of the phone but everything is exactly the same and it does even come in a standard

T-mobile box so we have a quick start guide here we also have a sim card removal tool we have a usbc cable for charging and data transfer and we have a usb wall adapter i've had a great experience taking photos and videos with the t-mobile level 4 plus the quality from the pictures especially really does look good it really does get the job done as pictures do look very crispy now i certainly do wish that we did get an ultra wide camera here with the phone

Unfortunately we don't but at least the standard camera and i suppose also the depth sensing camera are capable of giving you very good results so definitely if you do want a phone that does take very nice photos and videos then i would recommend going with the t-mobile level 4 plus but let's now take a look at some video samples what's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with a front-facing test video from the t-mobile revel 4 plus so let me know what you think of the

Quality from this video as well as the microphone quality and here's a test video at 1080p using the rear camera from the t-mobile revel four plus let me know what you think of the quality we do have autofocus in video mode and here's a video at 4k at 30fps using the t-mobile revel 4 plus now the final output for this review is going to be 1080p just letting you know so the video will be down sampled

But i am recording the original footage here in the 4k mode i just personally prefer to export my videos at 1080p because it takes up less space in my hard drive so in conclusion is the t-mobile revel four plus worth buying i feel like this phone is certainly a very good value for the price really the only thing that i feel like is lacking here with the phone is that we don't have an ultra wide

Camera and the reason why that's really a big deal is because all the competitors of this device do offer that feature so considering that we're not getting it here with the phone and considering that it's something that i personally do like quite a bit i really do wish that they included it now the good news though is this phone has plenty of other things going for it that do make it a good option it's nice to see that we do get nfc with this phone which is still hard to come by for budget phones

The display looks nice as well the build of the phone is good and it's certainly not cheap and the fingerprint sensor is nice and responsive so in general i do recommend going for the t-mobile level 4 plus and another nice thing as well is that since this phone is being offered only by t-mobile and metro you are going to be able to get some really good deals on it most likely but i hope you enjoyed my review of the t-mobile revel 4 plus if you liked it give the video a thumbs up and make sure to sub to the channel

As well but this is kevin here and i'll see you in the next video
