TCL Stylus 5G review: not quite write - The Verge News
TCL’s Stylus 5G is a cheap stylus phone that offers 5G connectivity. It offers a big, bright 6.8-inch screen and good pre-downloaded stylus apps but otherwise delivers lackluster performance.
TCL’s entry-level Stylus 5G makes sense for someone on a strict budget who absolutely must have 5G and a built-in stylus. That’s quite a specific demographic, and I’m not sure many people meet all of that criteria.
The TCL Stylus 5G is available for $258 from T-Mobile or $269 from Metro by T-Mobile — they’re the exact same model — and for now, those are the only ways to purchase it in the US. The Stylus 5G is also the third notable budget stylus phone to arrive on store shelves in the US this year, alongside the 2022 versions of Motorola’s Moto G Stylus and Moto G Stylus 5G. Got all those product names straight? Good, there’s a quiz later.
