Reviews for the TCL 40 XE

80% TCL 40 XE 5G Review: It's the screen that makes it worth it
Source: Android Headlines English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 40 XE 5G is not a phone that’s meant to be a game-changer or a flagship killer. It’s just meant to be a good phone for the price, and that’s exactly what it is. This phone has a nice display, solid build quality, and great software. You get all of this for the price of only $100. I think that it should be worth at least $100 more than that. TCL did a great job with this phone, and I highly recommend that you pick one up.

TCL 40 XE 5G | Under $150 for 5G [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English EN→zh-CN
For a $120 prepaid phone, the TCL 40 XE 5G isn’t bad. You get Verizon’s 5G coverage, a decent battery, and a nice lightweight smartphone. If you are using mutiple apps it can boggle down alittle but if it is just a couple at a time its great.

70% TCL 40 XE 5G review: All bang, few bucks
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
TCL aims to deliver a feature-packed smartphone for an affordable price tag with the 40 XE 5G, and for the most part, they’ve knocked it out of the park. The phone features a few improvements over the TCL 30 XE 5G, such as a bigger battery (5,000mAh vs 4,500mAh) and twice the internal storage (128GB vs 64GB). It’s also $30 less at $169.99 MSRP, making it the most affordable 5G smartphone from TCL to date. In terms of design, the TCL 40 XE 5G feels solid and sturdy, unlike the cheap, flimsy plastic on many budget devices. The stylish black brush metal pattern on the backside goes a long way toward the more premium look of the phone. The left side has a slot for the SIM card and a microSD card to expand the phone’s storage up to 1TB. There’s also a headphone jack at the bottom and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. While the fingerprint scanner is speedy and accurate, I wish it was placed higher, as it sits smack dab in the middle of the side, which can be cramped to reach.

TCL 40 XE Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 40XE is a budget king smartphone that will grant impressive specs and features. Although, there’s no denying that are some shortcomings in this phone, still, it stays strong in the extreme competition of the entry-level 5G phones. You are getting a standard resolution display, average processing power, decent battery life, and good photography. But still, the average storage capacity, low-resolution display, and mediocre video recording are the core downside of this phone. The company also released an upgraded version of this phone, which is known as the TCL 40 X that offers a 50MP instead of the regular 13MP primary lens. So you can check this phone later on. But for now, the TCL 40 XE is a great deal under the $170 budget. If you are looking for an alternative 5g smartphone then you can check out the TCL 40 X smartphone which comes with 5g support in a decent price range.

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。
