Reviews for the TCL 20S

80% TCL 20S review
Source: Techradar English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 20S is an impressive budget phone for its price, with a crisp Full HD Plus display, decent camera suite, big 5,000mAh battery, and other features that are more in line with a mid-range handset. While nothing particularly stands out about the phone (besides the display), it isn’t lacking in any category either, making it a strong all-rounder.

70% TCL 20S Review: A compelling competitor under $300
Source: Phandroid English EN→zh-CN
TCL is definitely trending in the right direction with its smartphone lineup. The TCL 20S offers a good balance of features and performance that put it in contention with other devices in this price bracket. The display is fantastic, and NXTVISION is getting better with every release. The 20S will last throughout an entire day, and then some, and the frosted matte finish makes it easy to hold and use the phone. But we would have liked to see the inclusion of 5G connectivity at the very least, as other devices in the segment already offer it. And with the massive 5,000mAh battery throwing in 30W charging speeds would have been a nice touch. If you need to buy a cheap phone today and aren’t intrigued by any of the other options out there, then the TCL 20S will do the job just fine.

TCL 20S Review: Too many compromises to recommend over the competition
Source: XDA Developers English EN→zh-CN
In the end, the TCL 20S has too many flaws to overcome a competitive field at the $250-300 price point for Android phones. On top of the issues I’ve outlined thus far, the phone also lacks an IP rating for dust and water resistance. You can find 5G in both the Samsung A32 5G and OnePlus Nord N200 5G, both of which seem like better options if you’re looking at a $300 budget. TCL did manage to pack in a nice display and solid audio with an attractive design, but those things only go so far. You can’t play many interesting Android games due to performance issues, photo quality is subpar, and there are just too many superior devices out there to settle down and accept those compromises.

80% TCL 20S Review – A Great, Good-Looking Phone Mostly Held Back By Its Price
Source: Android Headlines English EN→zh-CN
At the end of the day, whether or not TCL 20S is a phone that’s perfect for you will depend on whether or not the caveats and benefits described in this review will suit your needs. If consistent performance and great visual management are more important than a display with a high refresh rate, TCL 20S has you covered. The same can be said if being able to easily see the screen under bright light is important to you. After all, TCL 20S is still a hard-to-beat smartphone. And that’s only made more true by its relatively low price point, which appears to be the source of those caveats. So, at the very least, it’s not a handset anybody shopping in the budget end of the Android landscape should ignore.

If consistent performance and great visual management are more important than a display with a high refresh rate, TCL 20S has you covered. The same can be said if being able to easily see the screen under bright light is important to you. Similarly, if 5G, the fastest charging, and a great nighttime camera aren’t too important, but great software optimization, daytime camera, updates, Bluetooth sharing, and design are important, this phone absolutely won’t let you down. After all, TCL 20S is still a hard-to-beat smartphone. And that’s only made more true by its relatively low price point, which appears to be the source of those caveats. So, at the very least, it’s not a handset anybody shopping in the budget end of the Android landscape should ignore.

50% TCL 20S and TCL 20 SE review: 2019 called, it doesn't want its phones back
Source: Android Central English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 20S is a decent phone for anyone who wants a smartphone right now and doesn't want to break the bank. It has a good design that resembles some better smartphones, and the software is pretty lightweight. Unfortunately, things go south quickly for the 20S when you decide to take a picture or play a mobile game.
