I slipped a SIM into a rather inexpensive (compared to some) Android mobile that I recently ordered. It doesn’t have the “horsepower” of some that I’ve had, but it runs sweetly and has a straightforward beautiful interface that I like. It has Android 11.
It is a TCL 10 Pro – T799B. Got it for $315 mainly due to TCL now releasing the 20 Pro series thus dating this 10 Pro. Price went down by $135. Original TCL 10 Pro price was $450.
I’m no expert, but the camera seems adequate to me for a “cheap” smartphone. We went out to Country Park today to goof off and take some pictures with the TCL 10 Pro. I like budget devices that actually work.
A nice thing about going budget is that you don’t have to run ’em till they drop, unless you want to. If you smash it or lose it, your life won’t be completely over.
