I really do not understand the comments on this device!! I am reading "rubbish phone", "freezing", "bugs", "spying software"...!
What the hell are you talking about???!!! This device is the best phone you can buy for under 200euros (159euros currently in Greece).
Near stock Android 11 with NO lags or freezing problems, truly one of the smoothest UI, EXTREMELY good build quality (dropped from 185cm height with no case and it didn't even scratched), amazing power management.
I have this device for 13 months and I gotta say, TCL is the only way to go.
Please do not mislead readers
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2021I have some questions regarding charging. I have plugged the phone to charge it, and it said &... moreI got a TCL 10 L with a special promotion price in Hong Kong (3 mall) , only HKD 788 (about USD 100) and came with a monster bluetooth headphone as a gift (or JBL bluetooth speaker in second batch promotion). What a deal!
Regarding to the charging issue, TCL 10 L does not have 9V fast charging, it only hAVE 5V 2A fast charging, That's means it have a higher current fast charging (instead of higher voltage fast charging, such as QC 2.0/3/0). When the battery level is low, it will conduct fast charging (higher current), so "fast charging" is display on the screen, When the battery level is high enough (say over 80%, it will change to normal charging (lower current).
If you connect a 500 mA charger or connect to PC USB port, it will show "slow charging". So, don'y worry, your case is normal. I use 10L for about 1 month, I am very satisfy , The camera may not be very good, but still can take photo satisfactory for daily life photo taking. (Please think about the price vs performance, what other brand name can you buy with US 100 with same performance?)
As a low cost alternative to most manufacturers I purchased this phone and did not experience any of the negatives posted on this forum. Being a Verizon customer I was skeptical of the ability to use this phone on the network but it configured perfectly and worked great, experienced no calling issues or texting problems, camera took great photos. Setup was a breeze and overall performance was great.
It's garbage, poor quality and system issues, scratches appeared on the frame even though I never removed it from its case! System is slow and hanging even there's nothing much installed on the phone, cameras are a bad experience, when I used Google maps it made me go in a wrong direction because of its GPS signal loss! That's the worse phone I ever had, I'll smash it or throw it in the trash soon.
Poor quality sound, hard to hear. Echo when using speaker phone option. Otherwise other phone options work well, pictures are clear. Very clear display.
TanTsa, 28 Jun 2021Try eBay for another broken phone with different issues and get parts that way.for the same price like brand new this phone is the worst phone I ever had
anyone noticed the phone freezes for about 5sec then its fine and keep doing it every so often
i had this when i had tcl 20 se so i believe its a software issue but they not done a new software update since feb
so i sold as its really annoyed me
For who want a cheap phone, this is the way to go.
Not having one but, i see this selling for around 130 euros in MediaMarkt here in Portugal, i test the device...for the price, dude even Redmi 9 cant beat this, is way better than Xiaomi Redmi 9, 9C or 9A.

I agree with comments here there's not any availability to buy some parts of this phone I will do not recommend this phone for anyone In my opinion a really bad phone after a last update my phone is already broke after 6 months.please don't buy it !!
Does anyone know where to fi d spare parts for this phone?My charging port stopped working,so now im stuck with a hi-spec non charging brick
Absolutely rubbish phone please don't buy it the tray broke on my phone I just tried to remove SIM out but this is plastic crappy slot.THE MOST IMPORTANT :
There is no option to buy a new one tray at all your phone is totally caput !!
Also the phone have plenty of bugs after a last time update.I went to service with my phone they're told me the true this is are cheap phone.
I also watched on YouTube video about spying some TCL phones by installed software.
I just got this phone today, and I got it for $174 - so I'm loving it. It's got great specs for under $200. Don't know much about the battery yet except my phone charged up really fast, I was happy with that aspect. I've already gotten an update though it did take a couple of hours after I signed up with a provider, so for those who simply turned their phone on for 5 minutes and expected the update, give a few hours.
Personally, I don't see how anyone can complain about this phone. For the price, you're not going to find a better phone, period. I'm more than satisfied. Actually I'll buy this brand next time I go to buy another phone.
Anonymous, 13 May 2021The phone has terrific specs but the battery is trash. I have the US version with Android 11 a... more"trash battery" you say?! My friend, you have clearly no idea what are you talking about. The device has a 4000mAh battery that, with extremely heavy use, lasts a full day. I have pulled almost 7 hours SoT! The bettery optimization that TCL achieved is unparallel
The phone has terrific specs but the battery is trash. I have the US version with Android 11 and the battery last between 4.5 to 5.5 hours. And this is with light to medium usage using browsing, YouTube, Telegram, Instagram and Facebook. The second problem is that it warms up to 43c when normal usage. I expect this phone to last atleast minimum 7 hours with its 4000mah battery.
