Reviews for the TCL 30 SE

TCL 30 SE Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
TCL 30 SE is a viable option for those who require a new phone at a reasonable price range. However, there are no premium features like IP resistance, Glass protection, 5G connectivity, or an AMOLED screen. Some of these features & even better specs can be seen in various other handsets under INR 15000 range. Also, TCL 30 SE is still not available globally, so you must not wait for it as this segment has ample options. Check out other alternatives like Samsung Galaxy M12 or Realme 9i that come with decent specs in almost the same price range. Despite all the different options, it’s up to you and budget which smartphone you want to buy.

TCL 30 SE Review – The Best Low-Cost Smartphone?
Source: Tech X Reviews English
Despite the competition, it offers many alternatives in this price range. The TCL 30 SE is a budget solution for the basic user who does not have high needs and expectations from his phone and needs a simple device with modern features. That’s why the 30 SE gives you a beautiful screen, a stylish design, enough performance for everyday tasks, a pleasant user interface, a decent main camera module, and a decent battery life. you get a powerful performance at a low price, so if you are looking for a low-cost phone under $150 at this time, you will not get anything better than TCL 30 SE in this price range.

83% TCL 30 SE review: Affordable smartphone with NFC
Source: Root Nation English
By itself, the TCL 30 SE is a budget solution for an undemanding user who needs, on the one hand, a simple device, and, on the other, modern features. The new phone has a nice screen with good viewing angles and brightness, a neat discreet design, sufficient performance for everyday tasks, a pleasant UI, a decent main camera module, NFC and decent battery life. But, a 10-watt charger in the box and the charging speed itself leave much to be desired. I would also like to change the macro sensor to at least an 8-megapixel wide sensor. The resolution could be better as well, but you have to compromise something in this price range. The catch is that TCL 30 SE has plenty of competitors in this segment. Even within TCL itself. For example, the ambitious TCL 10 Pro offers a more up-to-date design, an AMOLED display with Full HD resolution and an in-screen scanner, more advanced cameras, including a wide-angle sensor and an adequate 5-megapixel macro. Yes, the battery life is worse, but not by much (and it charges almost twice as fast) and Android version is 11, not 12. Let’s move on.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
