I've upgraded to this phone from my Oppo A1K which was too old, and my upgrade was worth it. Good camera, good storage but my battery life is pretty bad, just keep it on battery saver then it will be fine this is a solid 8/10
I have the TCL 10 Pro phone from since the release date and I have no issues, used for photos and Videos/Streaming and battery life is excellent.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2022Stop being an update cultist."Stop being an update cultist"...Are you mentally okay? Who doesn't want the best updates for their phone.
I have had the phone about a year and a half and it stopped charging. The phone had many glitches as well. I luckily still had my Samsung stored away from before my "upgrade" to the TCL and I have truly missed it without even realising. I don't recommend TCL.
I bought this phone two years ago (Feb/2021) and have been using it and abusing it for the past 2 years every single day. It has worked amazingly. No issues, still going. Camera picture is good and screen size is relatively big and display quality is also awesome. I don't see any more TCLs being offered at Virgin mobile, so I have to switch to something else. But this phone has been great.

Sadly TCL totally removed or locked it down so phones just gonna be an ewaste after a few yeads.

Kero, 20 May 2020Stfu what is this price of unknown brand with midrange processor wanna go through the market o... moreK first, I could barely understand what you are saying, proof read before posting, also this isn't TCLs first rodeo, before their stand alone TCL branded devices they hung back in the shadows making the yes cheap but ok for the correct persons needs, T-Mobiles Revvl series, TCL makes those and really not a bad phone, price needs to be around $200 at the most, the specs don't demand anymore than that, still a decent phone though.
khaled, 13 Nov 2021Yes Xaomi has IR ports but they do not have NFC feature.Most Xiaomi phones have NFC, just not all wich is lame but they make a damn good phone, also some decent midranges but honestly for what you get spec wise Xiaomi rarely drops the ball. Just finding the one you love and it being released as a global version also can be tricky. Also yeah you either love miui or you don't, I like it but for example I do not like Samsung's one ui. But to each their own. Less money and more features with a Xiaomi for the most part. I would take a high end Xiaomi over Samsung any day. To me Samsung kinda got stale, Xiaomi mixes it up more from year to year imho.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2021So we are in 2025, dummy?Lol also these specs aren't real impressive, I mean what if we talked about a 120hz refresh rate, or any high touch sampling rate! Oh and look out for that quick charging at what 18 watts? I hope this person doesn't ever hear about the over 100 watt fast charging on an Oppo or a Xiaomi for example. What year were we in again? Cuz if they don't believe TCL specs I hope they don't catch wind about any flagship specs, that will blow their mind! Lol this is just too funny, I wonder if they know about 4g yet ha!

Honestly, had this phone since around launch and i have to say my overall impression is that its decent.
It offers a decent enough camera for an average user, a nice screen, cool design, and pretty solid battery life.
Its not really designed to be a power user phone or something that couldve really made an impact on the likes of the A51 and A71 at the time of launch, but it offered a slightly cheaper alternative and i think it did the trick.
Gaming performance is alright but it does heat up quick.
Camera performance is good enough that a normal user would enjoy it and all its options.
The screen is actually very pleasant to use and it feels surprisingly snappy for it being a 60Hz display.
Overall rating for a lowish mid ranger - 6/10, shouldve launched cheaper.
Please I am using the phone it's a dual sim check it well
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2020Do not buy this dense brick of sadness and disappointment. Somehow it is worse in every possi... moreyou are completely full of it...none of the specs you mention were even invented yet 5 years ago. you are lying.
SaraAB87, 16 Oct 2021I have this phone and its pretty awesome. This is the only phone on the market I know of that ... moreAlmost all Xiaomi phones have IR blasters, and they have reasonably priced phones at all different performance tiers, including full flagship. Though tbf, Xiaomi is VERY love-it-or-hate-it, and this phone is still very good, just wanted to mention it.
I have this phone and its pretty awesome. This is the only phone on the market I know of that has an infared sensor so you can control TV's. (Other TCL models also have Infared, so its the only brand really with Infared) It also is not missing the headphone jack and those 2 features and the fact that this phone is not missing features other phones are is worth something to me. If you are looking for a phone with infared look no further. If you are a power user its probably not for you. But there's not a lot of phones with 6GB of Ram and 128GB storage at this price point. Honestly its a huge bargain. I definitely recommend getting a phone with 6GB of ram at this point in time as 4GB of ram is a serious bottleneck these days. Curved Glass screen didn't bother me at all. 4500mah battery lasts an incredibly long time. I play Pokemon Go and I was lucky to get 3 hours and 30 min out of my old phone, with this phone I get 7-9 hours of SOT. If you don't play heavy games, you will probably get a lot more. Enough for a day and to keep going all day then charge at night.
There is a case in the box with the phone, but its a very flimsy case.
The only problem is its very hard to find a case for this phone, you have to go to Aliexpress and wait a long time to get a case in the mail to get the best price on a case. Most other cases online are overpriced.
