TCL is undoubtedly one of the brands with the best share of the telephone market in the United States, where it ranks 4th in terms of sales, ahead of OnePlus and Google, but behind Motorola (Lenovo): to attempt the assault on the podium, the brand Chinese has just announced an accessible smartphone with stylus, the TLC Stylus 5G (169.6 x 76.5 x 8.98 mm, for 213 grams), intended to compete with the Moto G Stylus (2022).

TCL’s new smartphone, just put on sale in the US by operator T-Mobile in Lunar Black at a price of $ 258, predicts. behind a slightly curved glass (2.5D), a 6.81-inch FullHD + (1080p) display, with 90.2% screen-to-body, a 20.5: 9 panoramic ratio, a blue light filter, 60 Hz refresh tate, and proprietary NXTVISION technology (upscales SDR content to HDR, for example to ensure more contrast and saturated colors when gaming). The hole in the top center of the screen houses the self-camera, 13 megapixel while. The stylus, similar to an architect’s pencil, is passive and capacitive.

Consequently, it cannot be used in presentations or as a remote shutter for the device’s cameras. On the other hand, this accessory can be used to take notes in the Nebo app for notes (usually sold for 9.99 euros) or to write formulas in the MyScript Calculator 2 app (usually priced at 3.09 euros), benefiting of a package of about 13 euros of ad hoc pre-installed apps.

Behind, a “rigid” rectangular ingot inserts the quadcamera sensors vertically at a traffic light, with a main sensor of 50 megapixels (0.64 micrometers of pixels), one of 5 megapixels for the ultra-wide angle and two of 2 megapixels, one of which for the macro and one for depth. On the audio side there is the 3.5 mm mini-jack, while security is entrusted to both the lateral fingerprint (in the power button) and the two-dimensional Face unlock.

It is a Mediatek processor, the octacore (2.2 GHz) Dimensity 700, which cooperates in the TCL Stylus 5 with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, expandable via microSD (max 2 TB). The 4,000 mAh battery can be quickly charged (2 hours), via microUSB 2.0 Type-C, at 18W (in order to deliver 15.3 hours in mixed use). In terms of connectivity, the TCL Stylus 5G focuses strongly on the new connectivity, supported in sub-6Ghz form, placed in the company of GPS, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi ac (display, direct, VoWiFi, hotspot up to 10 devices), NFC for payments, and Bluetooth 5.2: the operating system is Android 12, apparently with another major update and two years of security updates guaranteed.
