However the universe is correcting itself with the launch of TCL’s Stylus 5G.

At simply $258, the TCL Stylus 5G is definitely barely cheaper than the 4G-only Moto G Stylus. It includes a 6.81-inch 1080p show, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

TCLOh, there’s additionally the built-in stylus! TCL packed a couple of premium apps on this cellphone to utilize the pen, together with MyScript Calculator 2 and the AI-powered Nebo note-taking app, which might robotically flip handwriting into printed textual content.

The TCL Stylus 5G actually falls flat in a couple of areas, most notably the processor. Whereas the MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G is actually a succesful chipset, the Moto G Stylus 5G runs an precise Snapdragon chip. (To be honest, the usual 4G-only Moto G Stylus additionally makes use of a slower MediaTek processor.)
