Reviews for the TCL 20 Pro 5G

TCL 20 Pro 5G Review — High end experience at a mid-range cost
Source: Ausdroid English EN→zh-CN
The phone itself looks great, feels great in your hand and performs reliably well throughout the day, regardless of what you throw at it. If there are any issues with the hardware it’s the fingerprint sensor, but that’s only an issue if you’re going to use that as your primary unlock method. The face unlock is nearly as quick and just as reliable as that offered by OPPO, which really is a big compliment. Given the surprisingly positive experience I had with the TCL 20 5G, the prospect of the TCL 20 Pro 5G was enticing. It didn’t take long to realise that TCL has me seriously thinking about where the premium experience in the phone market is. In the case of the TCL 20 Pro 5G, a better experience will cost you significantly more money, making this an outstanding value phone on top of being a great phone outright.

84% TCL 20 Pro review: best midrange phone of 2021?
Source: Phandroid English EN→zh-CN
So, after all that, should you buy the TCL 20 Pro? The phone does have its flaws, but so do most other $500 smartphones. The difference here is what TCL has given this device. With wireless charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a glass, and metal body, and 256GB of storage, you’re definitely getting your money’s worth when compared to the Samsung Galaxy A52 and the Pixel 4a 5G. You’ll just have to decide for yourself if the compromise in battery life and the software are worth it to you.

80% TCL 20 Pro 5G review: A compelling sub-$500 phone
Source: Laptop Mag English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 20 Pro 5G is the best-looking phone that costs less than $500. And that beauty isn’t just skin deep, either, as it offers solid camera performance and a vivid (if slow) display. With that said, the TCL 20 Pro 5G shows marked improvement from where they were last year and I look forward to seeing what’s next from the company with a foldable possibly arriving sometime this year. That may give them the high-end credibility that TCL needs to win over more of these mid-range buyers.

TCL 20 Pro 5G Review: A solid midrange option in the US
Source: XDA Developers English EN→zh-CN
Despite some of its obvious shortcomings, I really think the TCL 20 Pro 5G is a solid value at $499. You can’t find too many phones in the US at that price point with a display this good and performance that won’t make you pull your hair out. If TCL could clean up some of the frustrating software issues and improve the camera a bit, they could really have a hit with the sequel next year. Competition in the US midrange market is fairly stiff. The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G can be had for the same price and it sports a better overall camera and higher refresh display. If you need amazing battery life or the best camera out there, you might need to look elsewhere and also spend a little more money on something like the Galaxy S21+. For those of you that take most of your photos outdoors and don’t mind throwing a portable charger in your bag each day, the TCL 20 Pro 5G is definitely a phone to at least consider.

50% TCL 20 Pro 5G review: Very pretty, but not special
Source: Tom's Guide English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 20 Pro 5G wants to be so much more than a mid-range alternative to more widely known phones, and it gets close in some areas. But underwhelming battery life results and cameras that don’t quite live up to the Pixel 4a 5G hold it back, despite excellent marks in the display and design categories. For $500, this isn’t a bad phone, but it isn’t really a standout either.

The TCL 20 Pro 5G is an affordably priced smartphone that looks and acts like a flagship device that’s twice the price. If you’re after a mid-tier smartphone that plays above its grade then give the TCL 20 Pro 5G is well worth your consideration.

100% TCL 20 Pro 5G Review – The Best Looking Mid-Ranger Brings All Of The Best Features
Source: Android Headlines English EN→zh-CN
Put simply, TCL 20 Pro 5G is not only the best TCL I’ve been sent to review. It’s also one of the best smartphones, overall, that I’ve reviewed or used. There are, of course, still improvements to be made in terms of the cameras’ night mode. The screen would be better if it were set at a 90 or 120Hz refresh rate instead of 60Hz. Better waterproofing would also be desireable, as would faster charging. But, setting those small changes aside, TCL 20 Pro 5G is a fantastic handset with a world-class design, great cameras, display contrast and color, long-lasting battery, and all of the extras a user could want. The fact that it isn’t classified as a flagship comes down chiefly to its chipset and associated RAM. Anybody looking for a new smartphone in the $500 range would be remiss not to give TCL 20 Pro 5G a closer look.

70% TCL 20 Pro 5G review: Just another pretty face
Source: Android Police English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 20 Pro 5G looks like it should cost more than its $500 price tag, but looks aren't everything. Those camera sensors that blend so seamlessly into the chassis are not very capable, and the software could use work. The phone is also not very comfortable to use with that extremely curvy display, complete with accidental edge touches. For $500, I'd like to see longer update support, a higher refresh screen, and software that doesn't feel slapped together. What it comes down to for me is this: you shouldn't spend $500 on a phone with bad cameras in 2021. This is a fine phone, but there's nothing special or interesting about it. I would suggest anyone looking to get a device in this price range hold off for a few months to see what the Pixel 5a has to offer. Alternatively, there's the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, which has a better OLED, longer updates, and better camera performance. Or... just buy a Pixel 4a. It's not as pretty, but it's better at the rest.

TCL 20 Pro 5G
Source: PC Mag English EN→zh-CN
Though TCL has been making smartphones for a long time, this is only the second year the company has stamped its name on those phones. The 10-series was terrific for budget and midrange shoppers; the TCL 20 Pro 5G builds well on that legacy. Excellent performance, a stunning AMOLED display, capable cameras, and a handsome design push the TCL 20 Pro 5G close to the top of our list for midrange phones. If you’re a T-Mobile customer, the 20 Pro 5G is a great option that will serve your needs well. AT&T and Verizon customers will want to think twice, since the 20 Pro 5G lacks C-band support. The Google Pixel 4a 5G is an excellent alternative if you need C-band support and want to spend less than $500. If you’re willing to spend a little more, check out the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G.

A Review of Second Generation of TCL 20 Pro 5G
Source: Phone World English EN→zh-CN
Some important improvements are made over the first generation. There are less chance of accidental touches with the new curved sides of the screen. The wireless charging is a nice upgrade. In competition with Pixels and Galaxy A-series, the 20 Pro 5G’s network compatibility and security support policy just aren’t as strong. Its software is supported for just two OS upgrades. It also lacks network compatibility with AT&T’s 5G, also it isn’t certified to use C-band frequencies. The Smart Key is still easy to press accidentally, the camera is basic, and Nxtvision is underwhelming. All in all, there are some real positives but as a total package it’s not quite on par with the likes of the Pixel 4A 5G and Galaxy A52 5G.

TCL 20 Pro 5G Review: Premium Features, Midrange Pricing
Source: Hot Hardware English EN→zh-CN
On the other hand, we’re not fond of the 20 Pro 5G’s low (60Hz) refresh rate, inconsistent shooters, limited 5G support, mono-only speaker, average battery life, and disjointed software experience. As such, it’s not easy to outright recommend, especially when Google’s superb Pixel 4a 5G and Samsung’s potent Galaxy A52 5G exist, and both also cost $500. With all of that said and done, TCL is on the right track with the 20 Pro 5G, we'd just like to see the software catch up with the hardware. Third time’s gonna be the charm, right?

80% TCL 20 Pro 5G review: Pulling the Pixel from its perch
Source: Android Central English EN→zh-CN
TCL's second-generation flagship is a solid entry into the mid-range section that's priced identically to the Pixel 4a 5G. While it can't match the prowess of a Pixel camera experience, everything else about this phone is a better value — so long as you only plan to keep the phone for the 2 years that updates are promised.

65% Tcl 20 Pro 5G Review: Good Looks Aren’T Everything
Source: The Verge English EN→zh-CN
If you’re on T-Mobile and you’d really like a budget device with a flagship look and feel, then the 20 Pro 5G is a good option, with a strong caveat that you’ll be putting up with some issues that competitors have already figured out. Most others would do best to consider one of those $500 midrange heavyweights. The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G offers a fast refresh rate screen, better network compatibility, and a solid four-year security support policy. The Google Pixel 4A 5G is a good option, too, with a better camera — if you can find it still in stock. You won’t get a fancy curved display or the high-end build quality with either of those alternatives, but depending on your priorities, they may serve you better in the long run.

60% TCL 20 Pro review: Disappointing budget phone with skin-deep appeal
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
I’ve got to be frank; I was pretty disappointed with this offering from TCL. Last year’s TCL 10 Pro offered a competitive experience with a great display and some decent cameras, but this year, the 20 Pro falls down in several core metrics. On top of that, it really looks like TCL is out of touch when it comes to the pricing model. While pricing is on par in the US, the value provided doesn’t match the competition. Again, alternatives from Samsung and OnePlus cost less in Europe and the UK but offer identical, if not better, experiences, suggesting that TCL isn’t paying attention to the competitive mid-range market. The underwhelming battery life, poor rear cameras, and slow charging make the TCL 20 Pro hard to recommend. The impressive display and good-looking design make the phone a joy to look at, but they still don’t make up for these obvious shortcomings when actually using it.

TCL 20 Pro 5G Camera review: Excellent high-end option
Source: DxOMark English EN→zh-CN
The 20 Pro 5G is the latest mid-range device from the Chinese electronics company TCL and sits at the top of their current smartphone line up. It runs Android 11 with the TCL UI skin, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 750G chipset, and offers 256GB internal storage that’s expandable via micro SDXC. The phone features an attractive design, built around a 6.67-inch FHD+ curved AMOLED display with a 60 Hz refresh rate. There’s also a 4500 mAh battery with 18W wired and 15W wireless charging.
