Keep in mind that the Pixel 4a 5G, which costs $500, had an extra $100 tacked onto its sticker price when Verizon announced its variant of the phone with ultra-wideband support.

The TCL 10 5G is lastly coming to United States shores, bringing extra reasonably priced 5G telephone at a $399 price ticket that undercuts practically all different telephones with next-gen connectivity within the USA market.

The TCL 10 5G UW will come with TCL UI, the company's fluid and intuitive user interface. The TCL 10 5G was launched in April, and it is slightly different from the TCL 10 5G UW in terms of hardware. The 6.53-inch display looks good upon initial inspection, as well, and packs TCL's NXTVISION technology that enables features like SDR-to-HDR conversion and Adaptive Tone for ambient color temperature adjustments. It also comes with features like Reading mode and Eye Comfort mode that help relieve visual fatigue and eye strain. TCL claims that apart from a great display, the phone also has Hi-Resolution Audio, and Super Bluetooth that allows the users to connect up to four devices simultaneously.

While the 10 5G UW is launching with Android 10, TCL says it's working on an Android 11 update for the coming months, and has commited to at least two years of security patches, provided on a quarterly basis.

On the front the phone has a 2.5D glass, and a 3D glass on the back. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage that can be expanded up to 1TB via microSD card.

The triple camera on the back has a 48 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultra wide angle snapper and a 5 MP macro shooter for close-ups. For selfies and video chats, the smartphone has a 16-megapixel selfie camera sensor.

The TCL 10 5G UW has one more camera than the Pixel 4a 5G, but even just after a few quick comparison shots, it's clear the Pixel has superior image quality. As their convoluted names suggest, all three of these devices are equipped with full support for both blazing fast mmWave-based 5G Ultra Wideband technology and the carrier's freshly deployed nationwide 5G signal. Results may vary. Reverse charging requires USB-C OTG cable, sold separately.
