The TCL 10L will soon be available in North America, Europe, Australia, and the UK around the last quarter at the price of $399-$499.

Is This a Phone Worth Buying?

As we all know, TCL 10L is the first self-branded effort of TCL. Therefore, the question arises whether this phone is worth buying or not? Now, the TCL 10L is a lot of phone for the price and comes with a few imperfections which can indeed be fixed with the software. The issues include problems with the camera software, performance drops, and hiccups in a few games and apps, but these can easily be fixed.

As for the benefits, firstly, the performance of the camera is brilliant in super-macro and 48-megapixel modes, and the speed, detailed capture, and color accuracy in those modes are great. Besides that, the display is one of the best parts of the phone for a phone under $600. The quality of the audio is above expectations as well.
