TCL 10 5G UW – Hands On & First Impressions!

by birtanpublished on March 27, 2021

In this video we're gonna be checking out the tcl 10 5g uw this device is one of the latest mid-range smartphones from tcl and it is being offered at verizon wireless for 3.99 now one of the things that makes this phone especially noteworthy is that at the moment it is one of the most affordable 5g phones being offered by verizon now this device does support both verizon's 5g ultra wideband network and it also supports their newly launched sub 6 5g network now you can see right now i

Do currently have a connection to the actual 5g network itself we'll be doing a speed test later on in the video and then one final thing i want to mention too for full disclosure tcl did send this phone out to me to cover here in the channel however all opinions expressed in this video and future videos about the phone are completely my own but before we get into more details about the phone itself let's take a closer look at everything that comes included here in the box

So this is the box the phone does come in you can see right here tcl 10 5g uw here's what the back of the box looks like let's see what all we get first thing we have here is this packet and in the packet itself we do have a quick reference guide for the phone and we also have the sim card removal tool getting further into the box here we do have two other compartments so we have a usbc cable for charging and data transfer and we have an 18 watt usb wall adapter now with this device we're getting a

Large 6.53 inch display the display itself is ips lcd at 1080p we're getting a ppi of 395. we're getting a 19 and a half by 9 aspect ratio so the same aspect ratio is the pixel 5 and we're getting an 83.6 percent screen of body ratio but in general i think the display is nice looking it does seem a bit more reflective than maybe some other displays that i've used from other devices in the past and i do have the brightness at 100 right now now with this device we do

Have a hole punch for the front-facing camera and the front-facing camera itself is 16 megapixels now with this phone we're getting 128 gigabytes of internal storage and we're also getting micro sd card expansion now there's no wireless charging with the phone but we do have a fingerprint sensor on the back let's give that a try right now and that's very quick in addition to that we also get face unlock with this phone too so you do have multiple options to access your device

While also keeping it secure now on the back of the phone we have a triple camera setup the main camera with this phone is 48 megapixels we also have an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle camera and then finally a 5 megapixel macro camera now here's how things look with the main camera then from here we can switch over to the ultra wide and you can see that we're able to fit a lot more content into the frame you're also getting portrait mode with both the front and rear cameras here in

The phone and then we're able to switch over to the front-facing camera and get those nice blurred out backgrounds as well and then you can go over to the more tab and access different things like the super macro camera for example and then you're able to get up very close and still get very good detail here's some of the other options in the camera app and you can see we also do have a dedicated high pixel mode and there's also a high pixel mode so you're able to take photos at the full

48 megapixels now internally here with the device we're getting six gigabytes of ram and the qualcomm snapdragon 765g now the 765g is the same processor that comes in the pixel 5 so it is very impressive that we're able to get that same processor here with this phone from tcl despite it being 300 cheaper now i do want to point out that this phone does have two less gigabytes of ram compared to the pixel 5. but i did run a benchmark test with this device using the geekbench 5

App and i got a single core score of 615 and a multi-core score of 1939 so what i recommend doing is running the same test on your current phone and then compare your scores to these scores to see if this phone is actually going to be a performance upgrade for you but in general i think this phone is very fairly priced considering that we are getting the snapdragon 765g i really have no complaints when it comes to the pricing now video recording with this phone maxes out at 4k

At 30fps using the rear camera and 1080p at 30fps using the front camera now with the device we're getting a 4 500 milliamp hour internal battery and with that we're getting 18 watt fast charging now according to tcl you're actually able to recharge the phone from zero to 50 percent in just 37 minutes so that definitely is very impressive now at the time of me recording this video we do have android 10 here as the software and then also with this phone we are getting nfc one shortcoming though and

It does make sense considering the price tag of the phone is that we're not getting any sort of water resistance or dust proofing with it but now that we've gone over the major specifications of the tcl 10 5g uw let's take a closer look at the hardware nardi talked quite a bit about the front panel here you can see that we do have that hole punch for the front facing camera situated off to the upper left which is fine we do have a little bit of a thicker bezel on the bottom and that is due to the phone having an lcd display

You do need a little bit of extra bezel space next to the display but in general i think it looks nice especially for its price range now with this phone we do have an all plastic build minus the display itself which is of course glass on the left side of the phone we do have the slot for the micro sd card and sim card then on the right of the phone we have the power button and volume up and volume down then on the top of the phone with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and the noise cancelling microphone and

Then on the bottom of the device we have the speaker microphone and the usb-c port for charging and data transfer and then on the back of the phone we have the tcl logo we have the verizon 5g logo we have the fingerprint sensor and then the camera module with the dual flash but i hope you enjoyed this quick hands-on and first impressions video with the tcl 10 5g uw definitely let me know what you think about the phone in the comment section below and if you have any specific

Suggestions for comparisons that i can make or other videos just about this phone but i hope you enjoyed the video and i'll see you in the next one
