Cheap Android phone deal takes up to $135 off TCL 10L and 10 Pro
TCL took the wraps off its first self-made and own-branded Android phones in the TCL 10 series last year, and the inexpensive devices are even more affordable at Amazon right now. Ahead of the arrival of the TCL 20L series, these unlocked phones are available at record lows with as much as $135 off, dropping these devices back down to their Black Friday prices.
The higher-end of the two on offer, the TCL 10 Pro, is on sale for just $314.99 (opens in new tab) unlocked. All you have to do to score the saving is clip the coupon on its product page for $135 off before you add it to your cart.
The 10 Pro features a Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor and 6GB RAM. There's 128GB of internal storage with microSD card support. It sports a 6.47-inch FHD+ waterfall AMOLED display with an in-screen fingerprint processor and HDR 10 support. It's equipped with a quad-camera set-up, with a main 64MP shooter supplemented with a low-light video camera, a wide-angle lens, and a macro camera.
The TCL 10L is the entry-level offering and usually goes for $250, which is already a killer price. However, right now you can pocket an unlocked model for only $174.99 (opens in new tab) at Amazon thanks to an on-page coupon that takes $75 off. That's a match for its Black Friday discount.
Inside, it has a Snapdragon 665 processor plus 6GB RAM. You'll find a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a high screen-to-body ratio. Like the 10 Pro, it comes with four rear cameras though its main camera is 48MP compared to the Pro's 64MP. Its internal storage is also lower at 64GB, though it can also be supplemented by a microSD card up to 256GB.
We put both the phones through their paces in our TCL 10L and 10 Pro review which is well worth a read. We've also compared the TCL 10 Pro to the Pixel 3a and the TCL 10L to the Moto G Power to give you an idea of how these phones compete with other devices in their respective price brackets.

Without any kind of long-term commitment to upgrades and security patching TCL will fail in the slab smartphone market. It is a shame and waste of good hardware,especially on the Pro version.
