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.
Google ripped off the design for their Pixel 6 from this Phone.
Great phone if you can get it for under $250 new or slightly used.
For 450$ not worth it. But i got it about 220$ new, now thats worth it. Though no 5g, its ok, bcoz i can wait 5more years for 5g signal to fully smooth operation
Phone fine,but not dual sim
Upgraded to Android 11 highly recommend
But not for gaming (pubg)
I haven't gotten any software updates since October, that kinda spoils the experience, does anyone have similar problem? I asked many times customer support and they always send me the same answer, I mean literally, copy paste type, with the same typos. Otherwise it is a very good phone. But I'm dissatisfied with the software support.
This is an excellent phone! Phenomenal battery; starts up very quick; large internal storage; looks cool; and has very slick UI features like how it charges.
lumixgx1, 18 Nov 2020Works OK apart from the UI which is really terrible. It's even worse since the October update. "terrible UI" you say????!!!! Lol! TCL UI is by far one the best UI on Android. Simple, fast, easy to use. Especially after Android 11 update it became even snappier. Now, if you want to destroy your phone then, yes, go ahead and install Pocco Launcher or MIUI...

Not only does FM Radio work but was surprised to see the inclusion of RDS which very few phones offer these days!
Price for the new & factory sealed unit was 250 bucks cheaper that what the Redmi Note 10 Pro would of cost me and that was the deciding factor to pull the trigger on this phone!
Can anyone from North America (i'm in Canada) confirm that FM Radio still works and has not been removed like the Greek version?

They trade blows. First of all SD675 and SD730G CPU wise performe in the same way, check out benchmarks, the difference is in GPUs, and it's there but it's not night and day. The display of the TCL has no equal in this price range when it comes to quality and it's software is lighter, so it feals faster. The Xiaomi spoils with it's fast charging speed, and no games can slow it down. The TCL ultrawide camera is unmaged in this price range, but the main Sony sensor of the Xiaomi is slightly better than the Samsung one in the TCL. And finally my Xiaomi scratched up way too easy, the TCL is better. They are both awesome phones, you want go wrong either way.
