What the Critics Are Saying...


Digital Camera World

Tech Advisor

Prices (Where to Buy)




Common Questions


The 10 5G price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare TCL 10 5G prices from around the web here on The Informr.


TCL backs up the 10 5G with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your 10 5G has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact TCL support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find TCL's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop. You can also connect with others in The Informr Community Forum to find and share answers to questions.
