Reviews for the TCL 50 XL 5G

70% The TCL 50 XL 5G is the cheapest 5G-ready Metro by T-Mobile phone, but is it worth it?
Source: Android Authority English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 50 XL 5G features a large 6.78-inch 120Hz display, 6GB of RAM, and a 5,010mAh battery, making it a strong contender in the budget segment. It runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 6100 Plus chipset and Android 14 out of the box.

TCL 50 XL 5G | Metro by T-Mobile’s Most Affordable 5G Phone [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English EN→zh-CN
At a price of $160, it handles itself nicely and not a snail as far as speed. It’s a cool device for that kid’s first phone or perhaps an older family member that wants to take pictures, make a call, or read the latest news.

50% How good can a $160 Android phone really be? I used one to find out
Source: Digital Trends English EN→zh-CN
For the price, the TCL 50 XL 5G is not a terrible phone (that honor goes to the Moto G 2024), but it’s also not amazing. It definitely has a unique design with the textured material on the rear and a distinctive sheen that I don’t typically see on smartphones, let alone one at this price. The display isn’t too shabby for an LCD, as colors are bright and vivid, with text being sharp and crisp. NXTVISION’s visual enhancements are also a nice bonus. The 120Hz refresh rate does provide smooth scrolling, but the midrange chipset does have a little bit of stutter every now and then. It’s also nice to see a phone that still has a 3.5mm headphone jack and expandable storage.

60% TCL 50 XL 5G Review
Source: PC Mag English EN→zh-CN
The TCL 50 XL offers a large screen and plenty of basic features like a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack at an affordable price. But its cameras produce poor still images, the screen is somewhat dim, and battery life falls short of competitors. You're better off spending $40 more on the Galaxy A15 5G, which takes better photos, feels more manageable in hand, and is promised many years of software updates, making it our Editors' Choice winner in this price range.

65% TCL 50 XL 5G Review: Bites Off More Than It Can Chew
Source: CNet English EN→zh-CN
TCL deserves recognition for cramming so many features from pricier devices into the $160 50 XL 5G. This includes its 1080p-resolution 120Hz screen, NFC for contactless payments, and 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM for multitasking. It's too bad that its T-Mobile exclusivity will severely limit its audience. On the bright side, if you picked up the phone while moving to Metro by T-Mobile, it's likely that the phone would be free through the carrier's signup offer. And while I am normally not thrilled with a phone that gets only two years of security updates, at this lower price it's easier to stomach as long as you know to move onto a new device after its security updates end. If you can live with the two-year lifespan, the TCL 50 XL 5G provides a lot of value. But if you hope to use the phone for three years or longer, you should check into what Motorola offers with its Moto G line or Samsung's Galaxy A phones, which will get more years of security updates.

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。
