Reviews for the TCL 40 NxtPaper

TCL 40 NxtPaper Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
Both TCL 40 Nxtpaper 4G and 5G smartphones are a great addition to the 2023 lineup of smartphones made by TCL. They provide some great specs for the price that are not easily available in other smartphones in the same price bracket. Even if you find similar or better specs in other smartphones, they don’t exactly provide a similar experience. If the above specs satisfy your needs and if you really care about eye comfort, then the new smartphones make perfect sense, but they are not for everyone. If you also want a great camera experience, then there are better options. The Realme 12 Plus will be better for the camera. Choose a smartphone that best suits your needs.

80% TCL 40 Nxtpaper 4G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English EN→zh-CN
One of my first paychecks was used to buy an old Asus MemoPad. I used it to read on my bus rides home. It just about fit in my coat pocket, but it was still cumbersome. Had the TCL 40 Nxtpaper been around back then, it would have been a no-brainer. So long as the general performance doesn’t bother you, you want a more accurate digital reading experience, or just want your high screen time to be a little bit better for your eyes, it’s a great get for a low price. For a few other considerations, check out the best cheap phones right now. If you demand good photography chops, you’re going to have to spring for a Google Pixel 6a. You might even be able to reduce eye fatigue with the Honor Magic 6 Lite and nab a snappier, more responsive user experience in the process. Can’t stretch the budget? The TCL 40R 5G is marginally more capable in everyday performance at around the same price.

Crazy 'ePaper' Smartphone! | TCL 40 NxtPaper Unboxing
Source: Tech Spurt English
Unboxing the TCL 40 NxtPaper smartphone, rocking an 'ePaper' display which mimics a Kindle screen - making for easy reading and clear outdoor visibility. This hands-on TCL 40 NxtPaper review covers the camera tech, gaming, video streaming and other features. Note that this isn't the 5G model, which serves up entirely different specs! That screen is a regular TFT-style phone panel, except that it has a multi-layer coating which creates the matte finish and filters blue light. The TCL 40 NxtPaper has many different display modes, to suit different scenarios. I certainly enjoyed reading books and manga, although movies look a little foggy, lacking in sharpness. Also, the camera tech here on the TCL 40 NxtPaper is basic stuff - as you'd expect at this budget price point.

只有较少的手机有很大的屏幕。

大尺寸可以让屏幕有更高的分辨率。因而例如字体等的细节将会更丰富。不过另一方面,小屏幕的功耗会较低,而设备也会更轻盈小巧,售价更低。
