What the Critics Are Saying...


Looking at the price of the 10L, I have to say TCL has priced the TCL in a very competitive market in the mid range market at $449. Though at this price range it is quite competitive and crowded, I have to say that you can do worse.

- Alex Dennis, Ausdroid

The TCL 10L is a good all-around phone at a budget price, with a well-rounded camera array that can take respectable photos. The screen is great for playing media, and the speaker sound isn’t bad, either, making it a great handset for watching shows or gaming. While there are some performance hiccup...

- David Lumb, TechRadar

If TCL can fix the software stuttering, then the 10L would be a fantastic value, coming in at just $250. But for now, you’re better off picking up the Pixel 4a.

- Andrew, Phandroid

The budget smartphone market is hot right now. There are a lot of great devices on the market and the TCL 10L is entering a really hot arena. The TCL 10L is certainly a handset to consider if you’re looking in this price range.

- Alex Hernandez, Techaeris
G Style Magazine

The 10L has a nice solid build, huge battery and decent processing power. Its display is not bad, and it being unlocked allows it to work with multiple carriers. There are some things that could be better but given how much it cost it is a nice addition to this tier of devices.

Prices (Where to Buy)

Common Questions

The 10L 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 10L prices from around the web here on The Informr.

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

If your 10L 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.
