Reviews for the TCL 20 SE

TCL 20 SE Review — The first stop in the TCL journey
Source: Ausdroid English
In summation, the TCL 20 SE is quite a reasonable phone for its price point of $299. The user experience is pretty seamless, the battery life is great and the auto camera settings produce really nice pictures. There are other phones in the TCL range at slightly different price points, keep an eye out for an upcoming review by Phil of the TCL 20 5G and Duncan’s take on the TCL 20 L+, so if the 20 SE doesn’t tick all of your boxes there is likely another TCL that will.

TCL 20 SE Review

The TCL 20 SE is priced at PHP 8,990. Even though its camera isn’t its strongest suite as well as its performance, you will still have a huge battery that can last 1-2 days with fast charging support, a huge display, and a stereo speaker setup which could definitely improve your media consumption experience. Should you buy it? If you are the type of user who does basic tasks like browsing the web or your social media apps and doesn’t mind having a weak set of cameras, then this device might be just for you.

TCL isn't a big name in the smartphone market right now. You're much more likely to know it from its TVs or sound bars. It's slowly making moves into the mobile market though, with the TCL 20 SE forming the much more budget end of things alongside the relatively high-end TCL 20 Pro 5G.
