Final Thoughts:

The TCL 10 Pro is a much better device than I thought it would be. For the price – in this day and age, I figured that I’d be left feeling pretty flat, but the truth is, it’s more than adequate and I’m very impressed overall with the performance, features, quality and overall experience with the 10 Pro. The screen refresh rate has left me left me a little disappointed as it makes the device feel a tad laggy, but the truth is, it’s more than adequate and I’m very impressed overall with the performance, features and quality.

In the end, there were a few things that I really loved about the 10 Pro – the speedy ultrasonic fingerprint sensor being the biggest and best. The sensor in my S20 is really picky, but the 10 Pro is stellar. The battery life is fantastic and even though it’s rated at 4500mAh, it is more than enough to get through a day or two of medium-heavy use on the gorgeous display.

The biggest drawback of the TCL 10 Pro is the camera – and it is solid – but it doesn’t compare to the S20 Ultra. The TCL has 2x optical zoom and digital image stabilization where the Samsung trumps it with mechanical stabilization combined with electronic wizardry and a better optical zoom. At the end of the day, you’re buying an all-in-one device – not just a camera – and for that the TCL 10 Pro comes out swinging.

For a middle-weight, it packs a punch and will be hard to beat in the ring here in 2020. For the price, it’s hard to pass up.

In my opinion, for the price, the TCL scores a solid 90%+ easy and earns "Gold".
