My original unlocked 3G phone stopped working on the AT&T network due to the network upgrade. So I found this TCL 20 SE phone which is a very nice deal until I can save up for my dream phone. The video comes through very clear when watching quality video programming and productions on apps like Youtube TV, Netflix, Prime, etc. I have been using the phone for 3 nights relentlessly and only needed to charge it 2 times. The charger that comes with the phone has a short cable, but it does not charge very fast, but it's not a slow charge either. I tested it next to the iphone SE 2020 which charged 2 to 3 times faster than the TCL. I am happy the phone is compatible with AT&T into the 2022 upgrade too. I don't mind the length of the phone, but not sure why it is so long I have not found the benefit besides more scroll space for email content. The color of the phone and decals is very nice! Perfect phone if you are looking to replace a phone on any budget. Also not one rugged or hard shell case available for the phone.
I seriously like this phone, but it doesn't use all the bands for most of the carriers in the U.S. So far it's my home/wifi phone and works great, I play games all day without having to charge it. The touch screen is a little finicky when it comes to acknowledging that you pressed where you did. But once you get used to it, it's no big deal. Fingerprint reader works almost perfectly, and face recognition about the same. All in all, a great phone at it's low price.
Like: -TCL implementation of Android on this phone is uncluttered, intuitive, quick. -Bloatware is minimal or non-existent. -Display is excellent -Speedy interactions, no lag. I don't use for gaming, just social media, internet browser activity, calls, messaging, calendar, 2-factor auth device, other basic online stuff. 5G is not something I need to pay extra for at this stage of its rollout as there is limited coverage where I live so I'll wait for 5G to "mature" before paying more for a phone that supports it.
Cons: -Button for Google Assistant is on left side directly opposite the "sleep" button on the right side, so, when I'm holding the TCL in my right palm and press the "sleep" button with my thumb, my opposing grip on the left side activates Assistant unless I'm very careful. An irritant.
My wife bought an equivalent phone at a bit higher price from a different manufacturer that has 5G capability, but we had to jump through hoops tweaking the settings to get MMS data working so she could receive texts containing pictures. Plus, its Android implementation has a less intuitive "feel" to me. As I said, I like this TCL 20. Overall, for my needs, I like this Android phone better than any that I've had before.
The face recognition wasn't bad. Fingerprint reader was relatively slow and frustrating, but did function. Battery life was excellent, which was one of the high points of the phone. My biggest issue with this phone, and was the sole reason I returned it was: the screen size (display) was not 6.82 inches. The screen might've been 6.82 inches. However, the display did not fill the screen. So, that was a waste of the full screen size. The reason I bought the phone in the first place was for the screen size. I assumed it was the full 6.82 inches. I actually wanted a larger screen than that, but couldn't find one. I wanted a full 7 inches or better. Now, you may not think that .18 inches make a difference, but believe me, you will notice the difference. And then when it's even smaller than the 6.82 inches advertised, and you actually hoped for 7 inches or more, that small amount is very noticeable.
This phone does not come with a audio recorder all. I bought a blu g 90 but the software was really bad and I had to return it. that phone stopped making calls and I had to restart every time to fix that problem.
This phone is really good, I bought it 2 days ago. User interface software is amazing compared to g90. the camera is good too. Screen is lengthy. holds alittle akward in hand. But I mean, it is a great phone for the money. I appreciate TCl spending so much effort on this. Unlike its competition.
This phone is very good so far. I like the design, features, camera and the fact that you get a case included. the reason I purchased the phone was for the storage and it's great. I got it at a great price seeing as though it's considerably higher now. The only reason I gave four stars is because the sound can be a little ticky at times but that may be something I am doing. I have only had it for a short time but I will update after more extensive usage.
Update: If you are using a random phone charger the phone will go black and you won't be able to turn it on. You have to change back to the tcl connector, plug it in and it will work fine. It has only happened twice to me and I still use random chargers because the TCL charger runs hot. I switch to the TCL charger when needed.
I have 2 phones and for this being my Android I was pleasantly surprised . I like the camera, so far the battery has been pretty good, speed is nice. I like the size for watching Netflix. And the price was great.
After purchasing a Blu 9 Pro only to find it didn't work on Consumer Cellular, I chose this one to replace my slow as molasses Galaxy ,love the green color,performs flawlessly for farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr less, you can sure spend a lot more for other phones, but this one DEFINITELY works for me. Only gave it 4 stars because I found it slightly heavier than my old phone.
