If your thing is cruising speed when you connect to the Internet, the market offers more and more models compatible with 5G that will no longer cause a break in your pocket. One is the TCL 20 R 5G, a device that combines an elegant design with a glass finish with a series of competitive specifications. Among them is a large screen that reaches a refresh rate of 90Hz and good brightness, a triple camera system, or a battery that should give you a day of use without problems. All this for 200 euros (although diving you can find even more attractive offers). This model is already in stores, and we tell you all the keys and features that stand out in this TCL mobile.

SCREEN WITH GOOD REFRESH RATE BUT FAIR RESOLUTION
The TCL 20 R 5G features an IPS-type screen with TCL’s NTXVISION technology. This technology represents an improvement in color reproduction thanks to the company’s experience with its televisions. Of course, this screen is committed to HD + reproduction instead of Full HD +, which can be noticed in the level of detail, especially in multimedia content such as videos, movies, or series.
Its refresh rate goes up to 90Hz, compared to the typical 60Hz screens we usually use, such as computer monitors. You will notice this improvement in the animations of the phone’s menus, which gives you a much more fluid sensation. Also, when opening applications and in games compatible with this refresh rate. This TCL mobile has a good brightness level of 500 nits, which favors us using it outdoors.
5G SPEED FOR THE PRESENT… AND ESPECIALLY THE FUTURE
I already anticipated it at the beginning. Compatibility with 5G networks is one of the main hallmarks of this TCL 20 R 5G. These networks are increasingly established and have greater coverage in Spain, but today, you will still enjoy it in urban centers with inhabitants. But what is 5G for? On the one hand, it is a network that offers you a more stable connection, and that point is interesting. However, it must be said that today, we still do not have real or realistic uses that will change the Internet experience substantially within mobile use. Another thing is already the online game with powerful titles or streaming, thanks to its low latency.
The good thing about having a 5G mobile is that you know it will be prepared to withstand the pull of the coming years. By the way, another of the advantages of this mobile is that it has a tray in which you can use two different SIMs, both with 5G connectivity. This is something to remember because some models only allow you to have 5G on one of the cards.
CAMERA SYSTEM THAT MEETS THE FAIR
The TCL 20 R 5G is not a mobile designed for users who want to take high-quality photos. The team of the Asian company complies but without great fanfare. At the rear, there is a triple-camera system. The main sensor reaches a resolution of 12 megapixels with an aperture of F2.2. It is accompanied by a second two-megapixel depth sensor that is designed to be able to take photos with blur or bokeh effects.
The last of the sensors is of the macro type, with a resolution of 2 megapixels. This sensor takes detailed photos, with a very short distance between the camera and the object you want to portray. In short, a solvent set in which you may miss a wide-angle lens to be able to take larger photos of landscapes or buildings.
POWER AND INTERNAL MEMORY
The TCL 20 R 5G is committed to a Mediatek Dimensity 700 processor. It is a chip highly oriented towards the mid-range, so it is expected to perform without problems when using regular applications or games that do not require a lot of power. This processor is combined with 4 GB RAM, a figure already in the average of what we usually find in models below 200 euros. This technical set is completed with an internal memory of 64 GB or 128 GB, depending on our chosen configuration. In principle, considering that it is not a very powerful camera, the 64 GB version should work without problems for normal use of the mobile.
The version in the bowels of this phone is Android 11 with TCL’s version of the software layer. This mobile is expected to be updated as soon as Android 12 comes out.
PRICE AND OPINIONS
The TCL 20 R 5G is already available in stores like Amazon or Mediamarkt for an official price of 200 euros. However, if you search, you can find more attractive offers to take with you for an even more attractive cost. In short, it is mobile for those users who put 5G above other aspects, such as photography. Of course, that does not mean that this mobile is only 5G. We also have interesting features such as the 90Hz refresh rate of the screen, with which more fluid images are achieved both when moving through the menus and when opening applications or playing compatible games. This is a good proposal if you are looking for a gift for Christmas.
