TCL (Company Overview):
TCL Mobile is the parent company of brands you probably know: Alcatel, BlackBerry (until August 2020), and Palm.And now it has come up with its new flagship TCL 10 Pro.The company falls under the larger umbrella of TCT, which also owns TCL Display. In short, TCL Mobile isn’t an upstart; it knows what it is doing when it comes to designing and manufacturing phones.
Rather than continue selling phones for other brands, TCL wants to start using its name on products near and far. TCL Display was first to make a push into the US market with its TVs. The company hopes US consumers recognize the red-colored logo and is thus launching a couple of TCL phones with the help of Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart (places that sell its TVs). And let’s not forget its folding and rolling display tech.

NOW LET’S COMPARE TCL 10 MODELS:
So what’s the deal with these two phones? The TCL 10 Pro is TCL’s flagship, but not a $1,000 slab. Instead, it’s a sleek $449 smartphone meant to appeal to those who’d rather keep more of their money in their pocket while still getting a high-quality piece of hardware. Alternately, the TCL 10L is more of an entry-level phone that almost pulls off the flagship look — but at a fraction of the price.
Since these phones will be sold unlocked at full price, they mostly target the prepaid crowd. So the question becomes, how much can you afford to shell out all at once?
