Recently presented, the new tcl 20 pro 5g has arrived in the editorial office for a few days and we have had the opportunity to try it and appreciate the aesthetic improvement and materials that tcl brought in this new generation of smartphones. Heir of the range 10, tcl 20 pro 5g is not very different from the tcl 20 5g already on the market, it is based on the same processor and has about the same size. A smartphone that arrives with a technical card that does not shout at the miracle, but that immediately demonstrates a completeness not recently.
We have in fact: 5Noinfraredaudio jackLovedois on main camerafingerprint reader under displayopaque back finish and anti fingerprint256gb internal memory + microsdandroid 11These are features that we don’t easily find in a smartphone today all together and that make this tcl 20 pro 5g potentially interesting. Screen that, with the curvature on the sides and the technology amoled, stands out and sees very well also in outdoor environments under the sun. The display also supports hdr10 playback and has been rated by dxomark with 89 points, as well as other top-end smartphones.
Pleasant double back finish that allows you to have a nice play of lights and makes the photo section less anonymous and embossed than the previous tcl models seen in 2020. based on Android 11, tcl 20 pro 5g has a slight customization software that, while affecting every aspect of the ui, does not alter too much the android interface. Everything is simply reviewed with icons, colors and launchers able to offer greater options and some exclusive features of the manufacturer. In general tcl has been careful in providing updates and we hope that you will not only provide a new android distribution in the future (android 12 and beyond. )
To move everything thinks about the snapdragon 690, a new processor as presentation but certainly not a high end solution, indeed. Well call audio and connectivity, but it is a shame that multimedia and speaker audio is mono and with only enough quality. The Isis is not enough and in general there is always an excessive noise in the photos, both day and evening.
Videos at the maximum resolution 4k to 30fps are however sufficient, the stabilization is visible and also improveable to 1080p with the “super stabilized” mode. Incorrect positioningtcl 20 pro 5g, however, has a bigger defect that makes it difficult to place in the current market: the price. It should be said however that the prices of tcl can give surprises and a few days ago we reported the tcl 10 5g with snapdragon 765g to 159€ in promotion.
So we expect a very important repositioning for this smartphone that, considering the alternatives, to be competitive should go down at least under 300€. We still appreciate the brand’s effort in improving design, overall completeness and the most accurate interface compared to last year.
