Immerse yourself with an FHD+ curved AMOLED display, and capture moments—day or night—using an exceptional 64MP AI quad-camera system, with the TCL 10 Pro.
First impressions are that this phone feels high end. Time has been spent on this device and it shows in the quality of the design. The glass and metal give the whole device a high-quality feeling.
The big feature is the fantastic looking 6.47″ FHD+ OLED display. The screen is where a lot of budget mobile phones skimp on, buts it great to see a company put on a nice screen. It’s rich and lively with excellent viewing angles. There is a dewdrop notch, but it’s not that noticeable. The back features the quad-camera in a single line across the back. These are built into the phone, so there is no bump on the back.
TCL 10 Pro Review
The internals are pretty standard, with a Snapdragon 675 and 6GB of RAM. There is 128GB of internal storage, so more than enough space. But if you did want to add more space, there is a micro-sd card slot. There’s the rare headphone port and the never-spotted IR Blaster. The dedicated Google Assistant button was disabled after the first hour.
Product support is where the dream ends. The TCL 10 Pro is scheduled to only have one major OS upgrade. This means that you’ll get to around 12 months before you start to feel left behind.
Comparing to other established devices in the same spec range, I found this kept up with all the testing etc. New launchers can be installed and setup took no time at all. I haven’t yet noticed any bugs or signs of slowing down.
Out of the box, any photos taken have a TCL watermark on them, which I am glad to say can be disabled and should be. Post-processing did ruin a couple of my shots, and overall I’d say these are acceptable to mid-range phones. The quad-camera set up allow for some nice shots and was a good choice from TCL. Images could be sharper and also less saturated, as the whites can be blinding.
The 4,500mAh battery gets me through the day. I was worried the display would drain it, but I was happy to see that wasn’t the case. The 18W charger is super fast and I didn’t even miss Wireless charging.
Overall, the TCL 10 Pro is a great first step into the market. If support for updates can be extended and perhaps some changes to the OS then this would be a game-changer. Finally, check out Jabba Reviews. Also, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
