TCL 10 Pro

Just before going to press, I got my hands on a flagship smartphone from a manufacturer that usually concentrates its efforts on making handsets for other companies, such as Alcatel, BlackBerry or a handful of own-brand models from mobile operators like Vodafone.

But now, TCL is standing on its own merits. And looking at what's in my hand as I type, the specifications and design are right up there. As well as a Snapdragon 675 processor, the new 10 Pro device has 6GB of Ram, 128GB of storage (with room for expansion using a memory card), a 6.5-inch Amoled screen and a larger-than-average 4,500mAh battery.

It also has a relatively high-end rear camera setup with a 64-megapixel main lens and a 16-megapixel ultra wide camera. There's no dedicated zoom lens, though - TCL relies on the high megapixel count of its main camera as a substitute.
