    In my opinion, it looks much better than Google pixel XL.
    I may pre-order it if Blackberry sell it for $499 usd.

    The camera in daylight seems to have a good amount of detail and clarity. Unfortunately we don't have good low light test or other phones for comparison

    TCL 950 evaluation: powerful my brother, this business machine has four speakers

    2016-09-30*00:15 PConlinemobile channel*评论(150)A +

    [PConline evaluation]*the former dominant smartphone BlackBerry declared before the end of February 2017, will be in addition to Indonesia, the world's regions, to stop selling BlackBerry, the future will not be the design and production of new mobile phones.*This means that BlackBerry will be permanently out of the smart phone market, a generation of business phone legend ended.*Blackberry fall, does not mean there is no future business phone, there are still a lot of later coveted enterprises and government this vast market, such as Samsung, Apple, Huawei, ZTE, and today we evaluate the protagonist TCL.



    TCL to start high-end business phone, most likely originated from the cooperation and the BlackBerry, the former had a foundry called DTEK50 Andrews business phone.*Today small series will bring you TCL just released a high-end business machine called TCL 950 evaluation, in this machine is difficult to see the previous business machine those familiar elements, full keyboard, flip, gold and so on all No, a lot of business machines blindly in the pursuit of luxury, grade to highlight the identity of business people on the tall, in fact, it may be only wishful thinking of mobile phone manufacturers.

    Configuration parameters

    The basic configuration, TCL 950 equipped with Xiaolong 820 processor, 4G RAM, 64GB ROM, 5.5-inch 1080P AMOLED display, camera front 8 million rear 21 million camera.*Network standard support for dual-card full Netcom and 4G +, battery capacity of 3000mAh, support QC3.0 fast charge, Type-C interface and support NFC.

    This configuration is still in the ranks of the best Andrews camp.

    Appearance: work well, modeling fresh

    As mentioned earlier, this TCL 950 is not the shadow of the local Hao Fan business machine, on the contrary, if no one said, maybe you will think of it as a flagship fashion phone positioning.*As for the design of this machine can please your eye, we take a look.



    Positive cover a 5.5-inch 2.5D laser laser engraving D glass, the arc is relatively large, extinguished screen when people have a kind of double-curved screen illusion, looks rather than overflow rather than texture, and feels smooth.



    Many people will soon notice, TCL 950 body at the top and bottom of the two unique speakers, the machine's speakers placed on the metal frame, the metal frame protruding, giving a screen "floating" feeling, In this way, the speaker through the front and back, both sides of the positive and negative can hear the sound.



    TCL 950 front top as a result of the black panel, and the speaker up, so it looks more simple, right place is the breathing light, light sensor and the front flash.



    Positive bottom due to the use of virtual buttons, empty, slightly monotonous.



    TCL 950 laser on the back of the laser lithography 3D lithography process to fingerprint sensors as the center will reflect a regular light, changing the angle of different effects, it looks very compelling.



    TCL 950 overall body only 6.99mm thick, with a large pixel 21 million pixel camera, the camera inevitably raised.





    In the box with 6 series of aviation aluminum alloy, CNC and other process, the impression is excellent, feel good.*The SIM card slot and power key are located on the left side of the middle frame, and the place where the right thumb is easier to touch is a "Wyatt key" that can replace the power key function, or define other functions such as Camera, clear cache and other functions.*SIM card slot is not loose, the keys feel more rigid.

    Overall, TCL 950 exquisite workmanship, more in line with the positioning of its business crowd.

    Configuration: to reach the level of the flagship in 2016

    Configuration, TCL 950 is not behind, using the Qualcomm Xiaolong 820 processor, memory combinations for the 4GB RAM +64 GB ROM, Android camp to achieve the current flagship level.



    Xiaolong 820 the power of this soc soccer we have seen in many mobile phones, it is based on 14nm FinFET LPP process technology to create, built-in 4 * Kryo autonomous architecture core, the maximum frequency up to 2.15GHz (two of which the maximum frequency of 1.6 GHz), integrated Adreno 530 GPU.*The baseband is full Netcom X12 LTE baseband, to Cat 12/13, equipped with RF360 front-end RF solutions, dual card dual standby to support the whole Netcom.

    TCL 950 performance test summaryAnn Rabbit (General)Total: 1345793D: 52331Geekbench 4 (CPU / GPU)Single core: 1730 / multi-core: 4087GPU: 7190Androbench (ROM)4K with reading: 37.39MB / s4K with the write: 15.5MB / s

    By running points of view, TCL 950 enough among the flagship of the column, Ann rabbit total score of 13 million points, 3D scores reached 50,000 points, the overall performance is quite good.*Slightly regrettable that, because the TCL 950 UFS 2.0 standard flash memory but not eMMC 5.1, leading to its 4K random read and write speed a little slower.

    Life and fast charge test

    Endurance test:*Plug the phone card, WiFi Internet connection, other modules are closed before the sub-test a key clean background task.



    From the test results, TCL 950 after all the items are completed 45% of the electricity, the results are very good, you know, the machine is only 3000mAh battery capacity, it seems TCL in life management is better.

    Charging test:*power-on test, once every 10min to view the phone battery before testing a key clean-daemon, insert the phone card, turn off all modules including WiFi, including, put out the screen, performance mode / power saving mode by default.



    TCL 950 charging speed summary (battery 3000mAh)Charging time10 min30 minTotal timeCharging capacity (mAh)510150098

    Through the charging curve, for the battery capacity of 3000mAh of the TCL 950, the charging speed is not fast, trickle charge part of the time up to half an hour.*However, its half an hour can be filled with 50% of the power is still quite good, especially for urgent use of mobile phone users, in emergency situations can also be used for some time - this is the meaning of fast charge.

    System: immersive experience people never forget

    TCL 950 in Android 6.0.1 on the basis of the depth of customization of the user interface, showing exquisite delicate object style, in the growing convergence of the UI design gushing out a clean, called the Zen UI.*Desktop icons are redrawn to depict real-world textures and shadows, complemented by cool colors.However, some third-party applications also failed to match the same style, some of the visual gap.



    System interface to the main white, interspersed with light gray embellishment area, it is very simple and elegant.*To-object style through the inside and outside, there is no jerry, resulting in a consistent user experience.For example, the drop-down menu for the two-stage, a separate list of commonly used to set large icons, are embodying the design concept from the user.



    TCL 950 addition to the conventional volume power button, also joined the circular "Yue key."This independent physical keys can be customized function, long-press directly to the PayPal or micro-payment code interface.*The rear fingerprint identification module supports alarm fingerprints and is suitable for emergency situations.*These shortcuts simplify the high-frequency, short-term application of the opening steps, properly used to avoid a lot of trouble.



    As the main business office phone, TCL 950 built-in "secret letter" for communication security escort, open after SMS, WeChat and other text communication information encryption.*Such as sending a "secret letter" word, will be converted into a string of irregular, the other party needs to unlock the secret letter in order to get real information, there is not a deciphering of the telegraph both visual sense?



    TCL 950 built-in "Conference Assistant" application, while recording the meeting can take pictures, and the timeline of the text in order of annotation.*Compared to a simple recording of the recording, I do not know where to go high, it is worth praise.*To facilitate business people short-term travel, TCL intimate preparation of the roaming package, pay by day, after the flow limit, easy to swim the world.



    In the name of Jian Danqin, TLC 950 will be elegant interpretation of leisurely mind.*Due to limited space can not list all the flash point, but quite ancient and human experience will make you an eye-opener.*Such as looking for car assistant, mobile yellow pages and other practical and beautiful in one, this attractive temperament is rare.



    TCL 950 is not only pleasing to the eye of the UI, and many users hit the pain points, immersive experience people never forget.

    Audio: with JBL headphones, listening to very comfortable

    Sound part of the TCL 950 is also one of the features, and other mobile phones like to carry independent audio chip upgrade hard quality is different, TCL seems to focus more on tuning, the built-in a Waves MaxxAudio sound library for the user in different scenarios Under different styles to provide sound.*In fact, TCL 950 is not the first use MaxxAudio sound library phone, after all, its performance will be better than before?*Demo under the chant ~

    Comes with player



    First bring their own players, divided into my music, online music, search three categories.Play interface The following is a list of songs, under the plan can show the album cover, lyrics and so on.*Operation is more intuitive, praise.The online music, TCL 950 integrated shrimp online music resources, find songs / songs are more convenient.

    MaxxAudio



    MaxxAudio main interface lists the different brands of earbuds / headphones Logo, and after switching headset does change.*But after all, the same brand of different headphones, the sound style is not unique, MaxxAudio how a deal?



    For users to use, TCL 950 MaxxAudio can directly select the music, movies, two sound styles.*Of course, does not meet the preset effect we can directly adjust the equalizer.*Here are some adjustment details:

    Common frequency band sound effect reference table

    256 Hz or less

    Bass pitch area, appropriate to increase the bass will become large, thick.

    Adjustment is too high will lead to bass head.

    Drums, cello, bass and other low-frequency instruments and more performance in this paragraph.

    256Hz-1KHz

    Vocal area, appropriate increase can increase the thickness of the sound, layering and intensity.

    The lack of the band will lead to weak voice.

    1KHz-4Khz

    Affect the sound brightness of the region, the appropriate increase can make the sound more clear,

    So that the sound details of the performance better, less than words will be vague,

    Too many words will also lead to sound blunt, sharp, lack of emotion,

    Female voice may appear dental sound.

    Sound quality audition

    Test audio: flac / ape, 44.1KHz, 16bit; headphones: box JBL; MaxxAudio: automatic

    "God under the skirt", "out", "black humor"

    TCL 950 to Xiao Bian's first ear feel no stunning, but also significantly better than the market in general mobile phone, the sound field will not be too narrow, with JBL headphones sound style partial plate, but the IF and high frequency will not collapse , High frequency is not much, the brightness is not high, so the female voice sounds more comfortable, and low frequency, medium frequency resolution is fairly good, but slightly thin IF.*Low enough volume, retractable speed, dive performance in general.



    Overall, the TCL 950 + box JBL headphones will not let you have too many surprises, but this is a pair of you listening to a comfortable combination.

    Camera: law-abiding, in the upper level

    Camera, TCL 950 configuration a 21 million pixel Sony IMX230 sensor camera, Fengyun sensor in 2015, many domestic flagship can be seen.*Camera interface and the general Andrews machine or less, to provide beauty, professional, panoramic and other modes, highlight the place is the TCL 950 provides multi-format camera mode, that can according to their own preferences, shoot 1: 1,4 : 3,16: 9 and so on 7 different proportions of the photos.



    According to the machine before carrying this sensor performance, Fengyun camera is very difficult to control, we see through the proofs TCL tuning skills how.*Note: Guangzhou weather recently to force, a little dark.









    First look at how the resolution, whether tens of meters away or a few hundred meters away, thanks to 21 million large pixels, zoom 100%, the text clearly visible, resolving power performed well, but the picture a little smear.





    From the above proofs can be seen, TCL 950 color reproduction is closer to the human eye can see, more real nature.



    Macro aspects of virtual effect is excellent, the color of the flower is very pleasing to the eye.


    HDR is not turned on


    Turn on HDR

    TCL 950 open HDR after the upgrade significantly, the overall picture becomes brighter, there are layers, a better impression.





    Night shot in the performance of law-abiding, noise control there is still some room for improvement.

    In general, TCL 950 camera level is more satisfactory, the daily patting landscape is no big problem.

    Summary: both business and fashionable crowd optional



    If you are a fashion-loving business people, or is a fashion love to engage in machine but that business cool people, TCL 950 is a good choice.*Its unique shape, suitable for highlighting personality; four-speaker design is very convenient to answer the phone, and putting sound quality is not bad, leisure time to listen to music to relax it is also good; performance can be assured that almost all of the large play Android games; system customization of business software is also very convenient for business people; photo is not top, but the daily pat is enough ... ... In addition to the BlackBerry has been falling, it is difficult to find such a cool business phone.

    The translation is a little off but it seems to suggest the camera is average and the battery is average. The benchmarks place is right below the current flagships. Any other thoughts from the review?

    Unlike the cheap TCL Televisions that are selling well here in the US. The TCL phones don't seem to be doing as well in this market. Think it's more a matter of Brand and Price.... once the Brand doesn't matter the price does - which is why Blu is doing so well with $50 -$150 price range. Most people here in the US would rather buy last years Flagship for $400 - $500 than a "respectable" $500 clone from China.

    I believe the TCL has the Sony imx 230 sensor. Which would make it the same as the Xperia M5?

    I am looking at the dtek60 as my next phone . Looks like a nice looking well spec'd device.

    Speaking as a guy with five-figures worth of both video and still cameras and lenses (5d3 class with plenty of red-ringed lenses) who has shot both semi-pro and personally for a loooong time (back to the film days) I'll say this much -- the Priv's camera is, for a smartphone, outstanding.

    It will never, nor will any smartphone camera, convince me to leave the 5d3 and $1k+ glass at home -- nor should it, consider that it cost something like 1% of that camera and lens to put into the phone!

    It's very competent given its inherent limitations, however. I expect the same general level of performance out of the DTEK60, and better "selfie cam" performance.

    Can you get better in a smartphone? Sure, but it's at the margin at this level of capability, so unless there's something severely wrong with how the DTEK60s camera is implemented (software wise and similar) I expect to be pleased.

    (The original of this shot is close to a 16MB file and is even more-stunning -- by a lot -- than what you see here. CB won't take that big an upload, sadly :-) And yes, my Priv took that.)
