    I just purchased the TCL 10 Pro...
    Do you feel you get decent quality images on this I am tired of Editing everything I Shoot. I use "Photo Editor" by DevMcGyver for Higher Quality. This Stock Editor is not bad, but (most) Hack down Size. (Biggest concern is detail in Close-ups. Not EZ to achieve.)
    I'm into photography as a hobby, and even my DSLR pics require editing (my last photo shoot took about 5 hours on one photo due to a steep learning curve on sharpening). Editing in photography is almost a way of life if you are looking for more than point and shoot quality. I do love that Photo Editor app, though. It's a hidden gem in the sea of filter based apps that think editing means putting animal ears and rainbows on everything.

    That said, TCL isn't a well known brand for phones. I'm certain you'll find better options out there, but you will have to pay a higher price for them. For point and shoot, I would consider Samsung as well. If you want manual controls, look at LG's V-series line. Even their V60 is getting up to par with Samsung and Pixel for auto modes, which use to be their weakness.

    I used to have a Nokia 7.1.
    Not a great camera. It was serviceable. Worked great with gboard. It's on the android one program. Look at its successor.

    I used to photograph for the local papers and did weddings, sports, etc. Lightroom and presets became a way of life.

    Haa. Rainbows + Animal Ears. Never crosses my mind. Cool you like Photo Editor too. Yeas, a Hidden Gem at very Least.

    I need images worthy of Gallery Submission.
    Asking a lot, I Know.
    You are both right, maybe Editing IS A WAY OF LIFE. But Oh, I get SO TIRED (esp when I have a headache).
    Asking for just Focused Images, is that too much❓

    I will look at the Nokia Series & Samsung, tho I may want A lot for my $.(TCL 10 Pro seemed to have a lot of bang for the buck.
    What do u all think of the One Plus Series as a better point & shoot ?
    Looks like no one has them available tho.
    Thank u for your input !

    Here are the specs on current phone.

    Does this look somewhat similar?
    - except CPU
    No wireless charging (never had)

    Also Questionable updates ...

    Is the phone you have slightly narrow?
    I'm petite build, but long fingers.

    Overall this phone is Extremely Responsive.
    Just need better Images !

    The 20fe is bigger then my note 2 from back in the day lol.
    It has the 800 series processor, 120ghz refresh rate, 6gb ram. Android 11 just started rolling out. Updates won't be the fastest but I love the device. I'm not even using a launcher. I'm using it with their one ui interface which is still on 2.5. Battery life fantastic. Microsd slot, wifi 6, and more.

    I was just looking at my images from my
    Huawei Mate SE, and the Detail is better than this TCL. How is this possible ❓
    A Double tap on an Image of a Seahorse, I can see his Eyelashes.
    Thought I would be upgrading. This is Unnerving.

    TBoD ! Looking at the 20fe, 599$ is lowest (128) I can find unless I go to dual sim (256). (B&H photo).

    Only have until 31st to return this (^O^).

    Here are two snapshots I just took while at my desk without any playing around. Damn my keyboard is dirty. Only a small desk lamp no other lighting.
