From CNET: Verizon's first phone with 5G built-in was the $1,300 Samsung Galaxy S10 5G in April 2019. Over 18 months later, the nation's largest carrier now has its most affordable 5G phone, the $400 TCL 10 5G UW.
First announced back at CES in January, the TCL 10 5G UW offers decent specs for its price. It has a 6.53-inch full HD LCD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (expandable to another 1TB through microSD) and a 4,500-mAh battery. It supports both Verizon's millimeter-wave 5G network that is available in parts of 55 cities as well as its new low-band nationwide 5G network that covers over 200 million people.
For cameras, the 10 5G UW has a 48-megapixel main rear camera, an 8-megapixel 118-degree wide-angle sensor and a 5-megapixel macro lens with dual-LED flash. A 16-megapixel front camera can be found in a cutout in the upper left corner.
Like the company's affordable TCL 10L there is a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone with a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top. As one would expect, more premium features such as wireless charging and water and dust resistance are not present on the 10 5G UW. TCL says it is IP-52 rated for splash resistance and it is worth noting that you can fast charge the device with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3 or even share power so long as you have a USB-C cable handy.
