Reviews for the TCL 40 R 5G

80% TCL 40R 5G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
At this price point, the TCL 40R 5G does everything you could need it to. It’s a dependable workhorse that, while lacking in the flash of a brighter, sharper display and a stunning camera system, offers enough under the hood to justify picking it over other 5G budget options. It won’t outpace your flagship (far from it), but for enterprise purposes, a first phone for a loved one, or even just a backup, it’s hard to say no at this price.

TCL 40R 5G Battery test
Source: DxOMark English
The TCL 40R 5G lands among the top half our battery database with a very good global score. When used moderately, the TCL 40R 5G’s battery lasted more than 2.5 days. Autonomy was very good during the typical usage scenario tests, and when evaluating the individual usages indoor. Overnight, the device lost less than 1% of power per night. However, the 40R 5G’s autonomy performance outdoors was mixed, with a below average showing when using the camera and the navigation, but an excellent one when calling. With a small 15W charger, the TCL 40R 5G charging experience was poor. It took more than 2.5 hours to fully replenish the battery, and the autonomy recovered after a quick 5-minute charge was extremely low. The device’s charge efficiency was also poor, with a high residual consumption of the charger itself when the device was unplugged.

TCL 40R Smartphone Review
Source: Tech Nave English
The TCL 40R smartphone brings lots of exciting things under the hood, and there’s no denying that it also got an astounding design layout. But, like many other mid-range phones, there are a handful of flaws in this phone as well. You won’t receive an ultra-wide lens, the resolution is stuck at 720p, no proper video stabilization support, slow charging, and the list can go on and on. Currently, the phone is exclusive to the European smartphone market, and there’s no clear indication about being released on the global stage so far. In that situation, if you want a great smartphone, we would suggest you check out the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro, it’s the most ideal phone that appears in the mid-range segment. Finally, decided what you want according to the requirements.

6.60":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
