While certainly in the budget phone’s price range, the phone includes a 6.1-inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, and a built-in headphone jack. However, it has a 3000mAh battery – which is smaller than the 5000mAh we see in competitorsIt uses an old micro-USB connector.

Cricket, AT&T’s prepaid wireless arm, is offering the phone at no additional cost to new and existing customers who bring their own numbers and activate the $60 per month plan. For customers who are upgrading their phone or need a new number, the phone comes in at $30 (although it may include fees) with a minimum of $30 per month.
The TCL 30 Z also comes with a MediaTek Helio A22 chipset, a quad-core processor, and 3GB of RAM.
The phone also has a small space of 32 GB, but it can be increased with a microSD card up to 512 GB.
TCL’s 30 Z comes a month after the company debutedwhich, as its name suggests, includes both the stylus and 5G capability starting at $258. While the software and security update schedule isn’t available yet for the 30 Z, the Stylus 5G came with a commitment to one software update and two years of security updates.
That’s on the short side compared to Samsung and Motorola, but it could be a trade-off that some people might want to have in order to get cheaper hardware.
