With the Galaxy S22 Ultra and previous Note models, Samsung has essentially cornered the market for high-end pen phones. There are, however, several less extravagant (and reasonably priced!) phones with built-in pens. Stylus phones are competing against one another in the mid-range market, and the competition is fairly close. The Moto G Stylus 5G and the TCL Stylus 5G are contrasted in the following table.

CAN I GET SOME REVIEWS OUT OF THE WAY EARLIER? In this comparison, we’ll focus on the contrasts between the two phones, but if you’re interested in learning more about each one individually, check out Android Headlines’ reviews of each. Here is the TCL Stylus 5G review, and there is the Moto G Stylus 5G review.

The designs for the phones from TCL and Motorola took two entirely different paths. The Moto G Stylus has a glass back comparable to the majority of current Motorola smartphones. To fit the frame, the glass arcs. This is cool because of the appealing way the glass interacts with the light.

TCL approaches their phone differently. On the back, there is a flat layer of plastic rather than glass. Its appearance and atmosphere are nearly industrial. Although in a different way, this back also interacts with the light. It reflects light in a way that resembles glitter. Although the plastic feels smooth to the touch, it looks to have a sandstone texture.

With these phones, you get two entirely different design aesthetics. The TCL phone has a more industrial design, while the Motorola phone is more focused on style.

Advertisement DISPLAY COMPARISON OF TCL STYLUS 5G AND MOTO G STYLUS 5G Although the displays on both phones are relatively similar, the designs are as different as night and day. The LCD displays on both of these phones are pretty sizable and feature good colors and contrast.

Both displays deliver rather vibrant colors and are almost neck and neck in terms of color richness. In contrast, the Motorola G Stylus edges out the competition just a little bit. Although that is accurate, the TCL’s display is a little brighter, making it more suitable for outdoor viewing. Additionally, the Moto G Stylus display quickly loses brightness as you start turning the phone; the TCL Stylus display has greater viewing angles.

Advertisement The Motorola succeeds in beating the competition in terms of refresh rate. The Moto G Stylus sports a top refresh rate of 120Hz compared to the TCL Stylus’s 60Hz maximum.

The TCL Stylus has NTXVISION to its advantage. TCL employs this technology in its TVs to convert SDR footage to HDR, which is a fantastic feature to have.

MICROPHONE COMPARISON: TCL STYLUS 5G VS. MOTO G STYLUS 5G The Motorola Stylus 5G is the undisputed victor in this case. While not as good as the one on the Galaxy A53 5G, the speaker is still a respectable player. The bass receives a lot of attention without getting muddy, and distortion is maintained to a minimum. The fact that there is only one bottom-firing speaker here is impressive. This phone can nevertheless produce a rich, powerful, and punchy sound without the use of a second speaker.

TCL STYLUS 5G vs. MOTO G STYLUS 5G: Performance The Snapdragon 695 SoC powers the Moto G Stylus whereas the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC powers the TCL Stylus. Therefore, both of these phones have less expensive chipsets.

The TCL Stylus performed brilliantly. There were hardly any instances of lag across the software during the review process. For a phone so inexpensive, the ease with which the phone handled the software was truly astounding.

Advertisement The majority of the games we played, including some graphically demanding ones, had enjoyable gameplay. One of the most aesthetically attractive games, Genshin Impact, was even installed and playable. Don’t get us wrong, there was a lot of lag, but managing to play the game and navigate on the gear that was available was an accomplishment in and of itself.

Performance on the Moto G Stylus 5G was similarly seamless. The phone can easily use the software and navigate through it. There are very few instances of lag or stutter.

Advertisement When it comes to gaming, the Motorola can run graphically demanding games more fluidly than the TCL. Several stutters were experienced when playing games like Marvel Future Revolution, although they were still playable. Genshin Impact is comparable in this regard. The game played little more smoothly than on the TCL Stylus, although it still occasionally stutters.

CAMERA COMPARISON: TCL STYLUS 5G VS. MOTO G STYLUS 5G When discussing the cameras on these phones, they are fairly comparable. Both phones have respectable cameras, though neither can match an iPhone or a Pixel. You won’t notice many obvious changes between the cameras when taking rapid point-and-shoot pictures.

When examined closely, the Moto G Stylus consistently produced photographs with greater color. The TCLs photos were generally somewhat flat in terms of color in a few instances. In addition, the TCL photos had greater digital sharpening than the images from the Moto G Stylus.

Advertisement This is not meant to suggest that the TCL Stylus’ camera is subpar. Additionally, this phone’s ultrawide camera produced more attractive images than the Moto G Stylus.

In general, you’ll prefer the Moto Stylus camera if you frequently seek out more color in your photographs.

Comparing the features of MOTO G STYLUS 5G with TCL STYLUS 5G We must concentrate on how these phones use their in-built pens if we are to have a stylus phone smackdown. Overall, using a stylus is more pleasant with the TCL Stylus. When using the Moto G Stylus to write, you’ll find that short strokes cause confusion. The little strokes can occasionally vanish or simply fail to register. With the TCL Stylus, it is not a problem.

The TCL phone’s pen can be used with a wide variety of additional instruments. The Moto G Stylus includes the essentials, like a screenshot tool, a live message writer, a GIF maker, a coloring book, a shortcut for cinemagraphs, and a simple note-taking app.

The TCL Stylus focuses more on what you can accomplish when you pull out your pen. You can pick from 13 different tools that are included. Basic tools including a note-taking app, a screenshot tool, and a GIF creator are available. There is a program that allows you to record a screen shot of a specific part of the screen and it works similarly for screenshots. You can use a tool to switch to split-screen mode and another to make the active app into a floating window.

There is a shortcut to the Nebo note-taking suite if you don’t want to use the default note-taking software. The final features include a handwritten calculator, drawing on screenshots, typing notes, seeing handwritten notes, and magnifying the screen. Simply put, the TCL Stylus is more useful.

MOTO G STYLUS 5G VS. TCL STYLUS 5G: BATTERY The Moto G Stylus once again triumphs when it comes to battery life. The Moto G Stylus boasts a considerably larger 5,000mAh battery than the TCL Stylus, which has a good 4,000mAh battery.

We were able to get roughly eight hours of battery life out of the Motorola G Stylus during the review time. However, we had trouble extending the screen-on time of the TCL Stylus past four hours.

VIDEO: TCL STYLUS 5G VS. MOTO G STYLUS 5G: SOFTWARE As we go on to the software, the Android operating system is presented in two different ways. The Motorola My UX Android skin is used on the Moto G Stylus. Essentially, this skin is vanilla Android with a few Motorola features added. There is a new theme editor, more quick settings, and other things. The experience is, however, very similar to stock.

On the other hand, the TCL Stylus makes use of the TCL UI’s fourth generation. This shifts Android in an entirely new path. You won’t notice any of the Material You design impact because TCL heavily altered the user interface. Despite the fact that TCL UI 4 is based on Android 12, you cannot use the Dynamic Color feature as a result.
