Reviews for the TCL 30 XE 5G

50% TCL 30 XE 5G Review: Not Bad For $200
Source: The Verge English
Finally, if you can take or leave 5G and buying an unlocked phone outright is an option, then the unlocked Motorola Moto G Stylus (2022) is worth considering. You’ll get better battery life and an additional year of security updates. It’s still quite a bit pricier with a $299 MSRP, but it’s almost always marked down well below that; it’s $250 at the time of this writing. The TCL 30 XE 5G is a budget phone that will get you through your day with as little hassle as possible given the price. It’s a good fuss-free option if you’re paying full price up front and want to keep costs as low as possible. But, if you’re subsidizing your purchase by signing a wireless contract, then you can do better.

The TCL 30 XE 5G smartphone’s unique selling point is its decent chipset, 90Hz refresh rate display, and 5G connectivity. Not to mention that its long battery life and an 18W fast charger inside the box provide a lot of value to this smartphone. If this phone suits your needs and you want a 5G smartphone, you can definitely go for this phone. But if the Full HD display is a priority for you, you should get its bigger brother TCL 30V 5G however, the TCL 30 V 5G will be more expensive compared to the TCL 30 XE 5G. In the same price range, there are many other smartphones available in the market. If you are looking for an alternative option, you can definitely check out the Motorola Moto G71 phone.
