TCL NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses - Is that a 140" Screen in your pocket?
SHARE

With the help of its display technology, TCL made a 140-inch screen that fits in your bag. TCL’s NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses keep you entertained everywhere, anytime. This is a cinema-like experience you can take anywhere, like on a long-haul flight, on the couch, or even in bed.

Features

  • Cinema on the go
  • Portable and lightweight
  • See Surroundings
  • Futuristic Design

Design

Design-wise, the TCL NXTWEAR G Smart Glasses look more like bulky sunglasses with tiny 1080p OLED displays. It results in pretty good picture quality, especially for colours and contrast. They also built speakers into the arms, so you can have an immersive experience. The integrated speakers have one major drawback, which is that your private visual experience is now a very public audio experience, since people around you can hear them.

Considering the electronics have to be integrated somewhere, it’s obvious some extra room will be needed. Thankfully, getting a wired solution gets rid of the need for a battery, keeping the weight down, which is critical for anything on your head.

A USB cable emerges from the right arm and runs down your neck and down your shirt, making it fairly hidden from casual observers. Using the USB cable, you can either connect your phone, which TCL hopes is a supported TCL smartphone model, or run it like an external monitor.

The only thing I don’t like about the design is how rigid it is. It’s not possible to adjust the angle of the displays. Making an assumption about how people will use this is a mistake.

Performance

My M1 Apple Mac and glasses worked like a charm. My desktop appeared immediately after MacOS detected the glasses. In terms of clarity, brightness, and sharpness, the image was brilliant.

However, the glasses were pretty uncomfortable on my head. If the screen angle and frame width could have been adjusted, it would have been great.

Final Thoughts

It’s hard not to like the TCL Nxtwear G Smart Glasses. It’s got an impressive display, excellent speakers, and it works with lots of laptops and Android phones.

The TCL NXTWEAR G glasses are the company’s first venture into the wearable space, and I’m very impressed with them. I feel like the designers put a lot of emphasis on display quality, and they did a great job.

Adjustability is where the product really lacks and needs to improve in the next version.
