if you need a new solid reliable phone without spending a fortune then it’s worth taking a look at the current deal available for eBay Plus members on the Allphones eBay store.

This pricing is only available for eBay Plus members who use the code PLUSTC15. eBay Plus usually costs $49 but if you look at your “my eBay” account you might see an offer like I did for a $50 voucher if you pay the $49 eBay Plus fee.

The TCL 10 Pro in Ember Grey (RRP $749) is available for $379.

When Ausdroid reviewed the TCL 10 Pro we concluded that it was a solid phone but might struggle to sell in large numbers at the $749 price point. At $379 with an AMOLED screen and recent upgrade to Android 11 with an Australian warranty it’s extremely good value.

“The TCL 10 Pro is a great choice if you really like the idea of a mid range phone without a heavy manufacturer skin on top of Android, a large 4500mah battery which easily lasts a day with heavy use, reverse USB-C charging, NFC tap payment support, vivid AMOLED screen, programmable Smart Key, Dual SIM and IR blaster built-in”.

The TCL 10L in Marina Blue (RRP $449) is available for $245 with an Australian warranty which is good value for the specifications.

When Ausdroid reviewed the TCL 10L we similarly concluded that it was placed at the lower

“mid-range of the mobile market, somewhere that Oppo and Samsung have taken a commanding lead in … at this price range it is quite competitive and crowded, I have to say that you can do worse”
