TCL, still a newcomer to the Russian smartphone market, continues to expand its range of gadgets in Russia. TCL 20l Smartphone + model is equipped with a large IPS screen with NXTVISION screen technology, which makes the picture brighter and richer, as well as a quad-camera with a 64-megapixel main module. We figure out what else is curious about the device and what it is capable of.
The novelty has received a 6.67-inch IPS matrix with Full HD + resolution. Thanks to NXTVISION, the device transforms the normal image into an HDR image in real-time. The difference is noticeable when watching movies and playing games. Content on the display gets brighter and more contrasty like on OLED, and mid-tones appear in dark frames.
The panel has a maximum brightness of 500 nits – enough to read in the summer sun. There is also a night mode that reduces eye strain.
TCL 20L + is equipped with a circular polarization screen and is certified by the TÜV Rheinland laboratory. The technology preserves the color and saturation of the picture when viewed through sunglasses, regardless of whether you are using your smartphone in landscape or portrait mode – a handy feature for summer days.
Practical and non-trivial gadget
TCL does not try to copy the appearance of models from popular manufacturers, as modern companies from China often do. She continues to produce gadgets with her own designs. The tested gadget does not look like modern devices with a camera block in the form of a “burner” and the same type of glossy panels.
The exterior of the TCL 20L + does not have any special delights, but the device is built surprisingly harmoniously and concisely. The back panel is made of non-marking plastic. It contains a neat block with four cameras. In front there is a screen without “bangs”, there is only a small hole for the front camera. Simple and neat.
TCL 20l Smartphone Four cameras
TCL 20l Smartphone + camera block consists of four modules. The main one is represented by a 64-megapixel sensor and an f / 1.8 lens. It is complemented by an 8-megapixel wide with a 118-degree viewing angle and a 2-megapixel macro camera and depth sensor. The branded application pleases with a variety of options and presets. Pro mode, slow shutter speed, auto HDR, and more are available.
The quality of photography meets expectations: during the day, decent shots are obtained with good clarity and rich colors. At night, the detail is reduced, but you can still get a beautiful frame. Ultrawide also allows you to take spectacular pictures. The macro camera copes well with the task and produces nice shots of small objects at close range.
