TCL operates in the solid category of mobile phone handsets in that they feature competitive technical specs at affordable prices. TCL only launched its own branded range in 2019, after manufacturing Blackberry, Palm and Alcatel brands for other companies. The TCL own brand range features Pro and Lite versions, though if you were to take out a Vodafone TCL package on one of its Pro handsets you would still save money on your monthly payments compared to a top of the range release from a major brand like Samsung or Huawei. TCL actually stands for Telephone Communication Limited, and was founded as a more obscure TTK in 1981 (but had to change its name after a dispute with TDK). 

TCL 5G Phone Packages 

You can find 5G TCL contracts at every major network, which means you get the benefit of choice. TCL’s handset range isn’t the biggest in the UK as it competes with the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo for the mantle of the best Chinese phone manufacturer. However, you can still find Three Mobile 5G TCL contracts, along with Vodafone, O2 and EE, that come in a range of data allowances. Because network operators split up all phone contracts from the cost of the mobile plans that go with them, you can select your handset and then choose the best 5G package for you. If you like to stream live sports or watch Netflix shows on your commute (or secretly at your desk!) then a TCL unlimited 5G contract will be more suitable for you rather than limited data deals.

Cheap TCL Mobile Plans

The 4G network will be with us for a good while yet (until at least 2030) so if you aren’t fussed about superfast 5G speeds (for which you will pay extra) there is plenty of appeal in the cheap TCL packages available on the 4G network. Like most phone manufacturers, TCL offers both 4G and 5G handsets to give you options when it comes to choosing the best mobile deal for you. Because of its relatively recent arrival on the smartphone manufacturing scene TCL doesn’t yet have the range of handsets that competitors like Huawei have, but following its early success with its TCL 10L Pro and TCL 10L handsets you can expect to see more cheap TCL packages available at a host of mobile networks.

TCL Networks

TCL phones are manufactured in Guangdong, China, though the TCL phone offers that UK mobile networks provide are just one part of a major electronics manufacturing empire. The company’s pedigree in manufacturing Palm, Blackberry and Alcatel handsets meant that all of the major networks took the brand into their pay monthly contract offers when it launched. You can find O2 TCL packages as well as those of Three Mobile, Vodafone and EE, while TCL contracts are harder to come by on MVNO phone deals. Even ID Mobile, which features phones from pretty much everyone and their uncle, doesn’t host a single TCL package in its range of mobile offers. However, as the TCL brand grows and releases more handsets, that range of packages is sure to grow alongside it and compete further with Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo.
