    I just received a warranty replacement from TCL with build number AAL093. Anyone know whether this is a the new version with the reinforced screen? How can ppl tell the timing difference of this build vs the latest reported reinforced US build AAL964?

    Thats software. Has nothing to do with hardware. That's an android build number.

    OK, so how do I tell the hardware build number. I thought the software was Android 7.1?

    Settings, about phone , regulatory approvals ( top left of the screen ) I think that's what you're looking for.

    The only place I've seen a date of manufacture is that it shows on the plastic screen Protector when you're taking it out of the box. It appears that phones made prior to early June did not have dates on them however.

    p.s. Time to check for updates as AAL093 is the original build. You'll find the update app in the app drawer, don't go looking for it in settings!

    it is the SOFTWARE update. It is updated every month by TCL, updates pushed OTA (Over the Air) - you'll get notification about the update, push few buttons, update is downloaded and OS upgraded.

    Don't know that there is a way to tell the difference.... even a "packing" date isn't a real guarantee of when the device was made.

    Many times warranty replacements are refurbished devices.... just have to hope even if it's an older production device, that the factory refurbishment included some extra glue.
