About Kevin Company

Kevin TVs are manufactured by Beston Skyvision Pvt. Ltd, a Company established in India in 1976.

With more than 4 decades of experience under their belt, Beston Skyvision Pvt. Ltd. has grown to become a popular name in the consumer electronics and durables industry (via its brand name Kevin).

LED TVs from Kevin, in particular, are known for their affordability and functionality.

Kevin is the brand that comes to mind when you want more, with a limited budget.

Both smart and non-smart TVs from Kevin offer competitive prices with a good combination of features and reliability.

For example, with say 20000 Rupees, the best you can get from a premium brand like LG, is a small screen and non-smart TV.

Within the same amount, however, you can get a medium-sized Kevin TV with smart features!

Below, you can read about the features I like in Kevin TVs in general. This is followed by Kevin TV reviews with their pros and cons.

I’ve picked out the best TVs from Kevin’s line-up and reviewed each for you.

What makes Kevin TVs different? (Kevin brand review)

 

Other than the obvious benefit of buying a Kevin TV (i.e. its budget price), following are the Kevin TV features that I feel are worth mentioning.

  • A+ grade panel

The quality of the TV screen or panel plays an important role in how the final picture quality turns out.

If the material of the TV panel has even the slightest colour, then the videos will look tinted. (Like seeing from coloured sunglasses).

Also, any presence of cracks, smudges, scratches etc. can affect the picture quality.

This is why TV panels have to undergo a series of tests.

The panels are then graded depending on their transparency and number of imperfections.

A+ grade is the highest grade a panel can get. It indicates the TV panel is achromatic (i.e. transparent).

And it also guarantees the panel is of the best possible quality.

All LED TVs from Kevin come fitted with A+ grade panels. This adds another point to Kevin’s long list of benefits. 

  • Cinewall (Android based) Operating system

Cinewall, is Kevin’s very own Operating system, which is based on Android OS.

What you get is thus a user-friendly interface with a wide collection of Apps.

Depending on the Android version the TV is built on, the App availability in the Play Store can vary.

Most Kevin TVs are built on the 7.0 version which gives you a decent collection of Apps and games.

To find something to binge on, you can use the filters (or menus options) like Movies, TV shows, trending, recommended, documentaries etc.

Or, you can open an App of your choice and check out the videos there.

To download more Apps, you can visit the TV’s Play Store or the Aptoide Store.

Although the App collection is limited, you can sideload Apps from a USB that you can’t download from the App Store.

You can easily switch between Live TV, Apps, other connected media devices (via the many connectivity ports).

The user-interface is easy to get used to. Many users have however, complained about lags when opening certain Apps (experience varies from user to user).

Sideloaded Apps too may not work as smoothly as you might expect.

However, the overall experience is good enough considering the TV’s economical price.

  • Smart remote

If you’re buying a smart Kevin TV, then you get 2 remote controls in the box.

5

One remote comes with an IR sensor and can be used like a typical remote control.

It has a long and sturdy build and a sophisticated look.

The numerous buttons on the remote justify its size. Every button is thoughtfully placed to make your TV navigation and viewing easier.

For example, you get dedicated buttons for Netflix and YouTube which opens these Apps with a single press.

This comes handy if you frequently ‘Netflix’ or love binge watching on YouTube. (Some remote controls even come with a dedicated button for Hotstar App).

In addition to these you get buttons for home, browser, play store and mouse among others.

You might need a little getting used (till you remember what button does what), after which your convenience is only enhanced.

The other remote, you get with a Kevin smart TV is called the ‘web touch’ remote.

6

This ‘web touch’ remote has a one-of-a-kind design with its stylish looks and unique button placement.

This remote comes with a USB drive that you need to insert in any 1 of the TV’s USB ports.

You can then start using the remote to explore the smart features.

This web touch remote has 2 notable features— QWERTY keyboard and an air mouse.

The one problem with the ‘regular’ remote you get with the TV is that typing can be tedious. You’ve to use the arrow keys to move from letter to letter which can take a long time to type just 1 word or sentence.

Typing movie, tv show names or search queries in the browser can become a very boring task.

But not with this web touch remote. The QWERTY keyboard at the back of the remote solves your typing woes.

The air mouse feature, on the other hand, lets you use the remote as a mouse. You see the cursor move on the screen as it follows the direction of your handheld air mouse remote.

Both features add convenience to your TV viewing experience!

  • Screen mirroring

The Kevin smart TVs give you the option of viewing content from your Smartphone (or Tablet) on the TV screen via screen mirroring.

By downloading the EShare App, you can use your Smartphone as a secondary remote control and to mirror videos, documents, photos and more.

To successfully screen mirror videos both the TV and Smartphone must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

You can then use the M-cast feature in the Kevin TV to pair the 2 devices.

Once the devices are paired, you can then use the Smartphone different stream files (audio, video, photos, MS-office documents etc.).
