Let’s see how it fares in our detailed review where we will see all its features.
G20S Pro BT overview
The G20S Pro BT comes in a standard cardboard with protections, inside we find the remote, USB adapter, a manual in English and Russian with all the keys definitions and specifications.
The G20S Pro BT remote control has a classic layout that offers access to all basic multimedia playback and control functions. This remote control is powered by two AAA batteries, a USB RF 2.4 GHz adapter is included (range up to 10 meters) but can also be connected via its integrated Bluetooth 5.0 interface.
The keys of the G20S Pro BT controller have a very nice touch and click. At the top we have the arrow icon to activate or deactivate the Flymose pointer. We have the directional pad, back button and home button (little house), at the bottom we have the microphone button for the assistant and the rest of the multimedia controls in addition to the number keys. The LED bulb icon also serves as a menu key. In the front rear area we have the IR emitter and receiver.
The G20S Pro BT remote control is easy to pair, by default if we use the USB 2.4 GHz adapter it would not be necessary to do anything else. If we want to connect via Bluetooth 5.0 if we need to perform the key combination to configure it, in any case it is a very simple process.
- Press OK + Back until the top light flashes.
- It will appear as G20S Pro on our target device.
- Accept the connection.
The G20S Pro BT remote control lights up automatically when any key is pressed. It is possible to completely deactivate the illumination by pressing the bulb key for 3 seconds, if we want to reactivate it we just have to do the same process again. The battery consumption will be higher with the lighting activated.
Thanks to the integrated microphone it is possible to make use of the voice assistants of our device, by pressing this key we can execute global searches for example in Google Assistant. It also works with other assistants and within the apps that support this type of data input.
IR key copying
This G20S Pro BT controller also allows us to copy the keys of our TV remote control in a simple way. This is very useful to be able to turn on and off the TV without the original remote control. With this function we can stop using the original remote control of our TV for all basic daily functions, so it does not degrade.
- To copy the Power key for example.
- We leave pressed the Power key of the remote control, the upper led will begin to blink.
- We point our original TV remote control from about 2 or 3 cm to the G20S and press Power.
- The LED will stop blinking and the key will be copied.
- We can do the same with the Mute key.
Thanks to the gyroscope system, the G20S Pro BT controller allows us to use a selection pointer by moving the controller in the air. This system is activated by default when we turn on the controller, we can press the arrow key above the crosshead to disable the pointer if we are uncomfortable or it is not useful at that time.
- Buttons: Left click OK / Right click Backward
- Pointer on Android TV: on Android TV system many times the pointer is not functional and annoying. Unfortunately it seems that it is not possible to disable it by default when turning on the system with the remote control.
The G20S Pro BT controller is powered by two AAA batteries, a universal method that can be replaced at any time or rechargeable batteries can be used. The battery life thanks to the auto shut-off system of the remote control will be very long and can last up to months without replacement.
