The TCL A30 using Plastic combination body material, that is very common build material typically found on the entry-level up to middle level devices on the market, plastic material body is not really bad on this modern era, but still this material body it's not solid on hand, look cheap and it may easily to scratch. So, the plastic body material should not be use for flagship devices on higher price range, if you found this material on the latest flagship device it should be minus thing for the user.

Other the important thing on the display screen is the display panel hardware, good display panel hardware will drive more best experience to the user. TCL A30 using very common display panel hardware that is TFT, it's good if used by entry-level to middle level devices. But, it should be minus when used by flagship device with higher prices product if there no any special screen technology innovation that implemented.

Yes, they are a good combination, this CPU and GPU setup can be use for handling multiple purpose on this device, such as for run some games, opening some apps, also have good performance when processing and rendering 3D image on the specific level that they can do at the maximal limit.

Memory

Besides CPU and GPU hardware, memory hardware is also very important sector for getting best experience for user when use that device for any multiple purpose, the memory sector itself are combination from the RAM capacity, internal memory storage and support for external expansion memory, then does TCL A30 is good enough on term of memory performance?

When we see the memory combination specification we can see the TCL A30 have 3GB amount of RAM, then also have 32GB internal memory storage capacity and the user can get more storage in this device, because TCL A30 does support external memory expansion with using MicroSDXC type.

Thus, is TCL A30 have a good memory performance? from the spec said TCL A30 it's good for use to any purpose in the modern use, but it's also depending from the user perspective need.
