In a market dominated by high-priced smartphones, TCL's 40 XL stands out as an incredible value for budget-minded consumers. Originally priced at $199, this model is now available at an unprecedented holiday deal price of $97, shattering the myth that quality smartphones are inherently expensive.
The MediaTek G37 Octa-core process in the 40 XL provides ample power for daily activities and its 5000mAh battery will easily get your through the day. Its standout feature is the 50MP AI camera, delivering superior image quality uncommon in entry-level phones.
I tested the its sister model, the 6.56-inch TCL 40 XE 5G, and the display is bright and offers a 90Hz refresh rate for seamless operation. The TCL 40 XL in this deal features a slightly larger 6.75-inch HD display and uses the same HD (720x1600) panel.
Adding value, the phone includes an 18-watt charger for quick charging. Compatible with most U.S. carriers' 4G networks, the TCL 40 XL is a smart choice for those seeking affordability without sacrificing quality.
Price: $97.99 (regularly $199.99) through December 3, 2023
