TCL 10 5G Review – A good attempt at competing with the OnePlus Nord

The TCL 10 5G was announced all the way back at CES in January when the world was relatively normal. The TCL 10 Pro was later launched in May, which was a good phone but with a confusing specification for its price. Today, the TCL 10 5G is finally launched, the spec and pricing are suspiciously close to the recently launched OnePlus Nord and Realme X50, which makes me wonder if all these companies knew each other's spec and price well before any announcement. Nonetheless, the TCL 10 5G offers up some real competition against the other phones, it...

5 best alternatives to the Google Pixel 4a you can buy right now

Google has announced its latest affordable Pixel phone, but it comes with a big caveat, you can’t buy it yet. It the UK you won’t be able to get it until October. It launches in the US first, on the 20th of August, and this perhaps shows who they are actually targeting the phone at. The US doesn’t have the best selection of mid-range phones with most affordable Chinese brands preferring not (or having no option to) sell their phones there. If we look at the spec of the Google Pixel 4a it just looks bad compared to some...

TCL 10 5G vs Realme X50 vs OnePlus Nord Compared & Initial Impressions of the TCL

Back when I reviewed the TCL 10 Pro, I criticised it due to the strange choice of chipsets, placing a mid-range 4G SoC on the most expensive phone while using the new powerful 5G Snapdragon 765G on a lower-priced model. It looks like TCL may have realised this and the phone is already 12.5% cheaper than the initial launch taking it down to £350. With the recent launches of the Realme X50 and OnePlus Nord, the choices TCL have made may actually make sense. The TCL 10 5G is priced roughly the same as the OnePlus Nord and all...

A few days ago the Realme X50 was launched and I have been using this as my main phone for the past week or so. As usual with Realme it offers exceptional value for money when it comes to the hardware specs, it is the cheapest 5G phone in the UK market, and the Snapdragon 765G chipset gives you a flagship-like performance at half the price of many other phones. Since this launch, the OnePlus Nord has come out, offering slightly more premium features for around £80. Both phones should make a superb option for anyone wanting a more...
