Very grateful to Magicshine on receiving a review unit of MOD20 handheld flashlight. This is a High CRI model with manufacturer's quoted ~1100 lumens of output. Magicshine also kind enough to include a charging-discharging kit: MAS-C1 in the package for testing.
First off, let's take an overview of the specifications:

It comes in a retail display box:

and upon pulling out the inner package:

everything is neatly secured in its own allocated space.

the MOD20 flashlight is further secure by a small piece of card to prevent the lights from falling in case if we pull the package up-side down:

to remove the MOD20 flashlight, just slide the card out:

contents of the MOD20 package:

MOD20 flashlight, user manual, spare o-ring and a wrist-yard. no battery included.

Magicshine generously included a set of optional MAS-C1 kit in the package for testing, a charging and discharging module for MOD/MTL series of flashlight

the input/output port is of Type C USB, they included a USB-A to USB-C charging cable and an option USB-C to USB-C discharging cable. If you need to use MOD20/MAS-C1 to charge your device, you need to select the correct discharging cable. In my testing, I order another USB-C to Micro-USB cable to test.

the different sides of the MOD20 flashlight:

MOD20 together with the included holster:

The side switch of MOD20:

actually, instead of calling it side switch, it is more properly to name it mode-switch as we can't use it to turn-ON the MOD20. The on/off is solely at the tail-switch alone.
it also functions as battery indicator signal:

it flashes Red when battery is low.

there are 3 different color status at the "side-switch" when we turn-ON the MOD20:
Green == ≥75%
Flashes Green == 50% - 74%
Red == 49% - 25%
Flashes Red == ≤24%

during my runtime testing, the Low battery status not only causes the side-button LED to start flashing Red, the LED also "dancing" in flashes too:

LED used in MOD20 is CREE XP-L2 Neutral White 90-CRI

the tint on this XP-L2 90-CRI is leaning towards greenish when compare to Magicshine MOH15 headlamp that uses CREE XP-G3 90-CRI.

I wish Magicshine would have a stainless steel bezel ring to strenghten the MOD20 flashlight from drop:

quite a beefy fins design:

these pattern at the tailcap ease the loosening and tightening of the tailcap:

bi-directional (2-way) pocket clip:

no deep pocket-carry here. the pocket clip is less firm than those from Fenix PD-series but similar to those from Olight S-series.

due to the protruding tail-boot, no tail-standing for MOD20:

I love this MOD20. But with use comes them drops. The finish holds up great. Had lots of drops with hardly a mark but it had a big drop Saturday night. Light didn’t flicker or nothing. It just keeps pumping out light. It’s not the prettiest light but it is the most robust light I’ve got. When I tell my son grab The tank he knows to get the Magicshine. I hope to see more flashlights from Magicshine.

I received the MOD 20 as prize from a giveaway of Magicshine. The beam is balanced and good CRI. The built is good, it looks and feels sturdy. So far I have no issues with it. I think the price for this is fair considering the quality of the product. Overall, great flashlight.

Doubles as a power bank to charge your phone with USB-C. Pretty handy when you’re on your phone all day LOL.
