The holidays are all about showing your loved ones how much they mean to you. Some invest in time spent together or share a lovingly prepared meal, but for most, giving and receiving the perfect gift is their love language. And if you have a tech-savvy family member or friend on your list, a smartphone could be the best way to go. Giving one of these pocket sized wonders is like giving a sack full of gifts, all wrapped in one – keeping us connected, providing entertainment, and, let’s be honest, making our lives a lot easier at times (Google Maps, I’m looking at you).

However, selecting the perfect smartphone can be daunting when there are too many choices to count. So, whether you’re buying for a budding influencer who captures every memory, a stylish friend who always matches their phone with their accessories, or a professional high-flier who’s constantly switching between taking work calls and answering emails, we’ve broken your options down into three simple choices. 

Browse TCL’s range and watch whichever phone you select light up your loved ones face…

1. TCL 30 SE

Between colour coded instagram grids and TikTok trends, we’re all something of a content creator these days. But if you know someone who particularly loves snapping pics - then the TCL 30 SE is the way to go. With a 50 MP, AI triple camera and an 8 MP front camera that work in bright and low-lit environments, the TCL 30 SE is the best tool for shooting special memories - whether it’s at a family Christmas lunch or on the office party dance floor. Thanks to the battery that lasts more than two days with TCL’s advanced Smart Manager, this phone is the perfect accessory for a full weekend of holiday events. And best of all, the TCL 30 SE has a huge 6.52'' HD+ display with NXTVISION, TCL’s vibrant display technology. This includes TCL’s reading-mode that reduces blue light, helping to prevent eye strain when scrolling through TikTok, watching hours of YouTube, or reviewing everyone’s holiday wish list.
