TCL Brand Review

TCL is among the world’s top 30 consumer electronics producer. It makes, markets, and sells everything from TVs to Smartphones, and Air conditioners to washing machines.

In the TV segment in India, TCL has positioned itself as a budget brand that spoils you for choices with its long list of TVs.

TCL doesn’t just offer the basic non-smart, smart TVs but also gives you a choice in the type of smart TV you want to go for.

TCL’s catalogue includes standard LED TVs, Linux OS based smart TVs, Official Android TVs and a QLED TV. (All these TVs have one thing in common— affordable price tags)

For example, TCL’s most recent 4K Certified Android TVs have all the latest features like voice interaction, large Apps collection, Official App versions, Bluetooth, superior video quality etc.

These TVs are backed by powerful Artificial Intelligence algorithms that are responsible for giving you relevant ‘you may also like’ recommendations. And to give you the most appropriate answers to your voice search queries.

Other smart TVs from TCL charge you significantly less than the Android ones. But they also cut out hi-tech features like voice interaction and Bluetooth.

In this article I’ve reviewed the 4K Android line-up of TCL TVs.

Out of all TCL TVs this series offers the best package of features, and price.

TCL 32-inches HD Ready Certified Android Smart LED TV

Highlights

Operating system: Certified Android

TCL offers both smart and non-smart TVs in its 32-inch line up. Out of which this particular model gives you the most value for money!

How?

First, this is an Android smart TV.

Getting home a smart TV is a great way to future-proof your entertainment solution.

This is because as smart TVs level-up in technology and quality, non-smart ones will slowly become obsolete (just like the box Televisions of the 90s).

Second, if you’re going the smart way, its better to have a TV that comes with official versions of trending Apps (a main feature of Official Android TVs).

This way you will not have to suffer Apps crashing or hanging up on you. You will also receive regular updates for the official Apps.

This particular TV for example, comes preloaded with official versions of YouTube, Netflix, Hotstar, Sonyliv and many other Apps.

You can also download more Apps from the Play Store.

You can also cast content from your Smartphone or Tablet with the built-in Chromecast.

When you cast a video, a link is sent from the Smartphone to the TV.

The TV then plays the video you casted while freeing up your phone to do other stuff.

Still, this TV’s biggest ‘+’ point is its price.

Costing under 15000 Rupees, this 32-inch TCL TV puts an attractive deal on the table.

The TV costs well below other similar TVs which further adds to its benefits. (There are not many TVs that can give this TCL TV a competition).

If you are looking for a good quality, affordably priced smart TV, then check out this 32-inch Android TV from TCL!

Pros

  • Certified Android smart TV
  • Google voice search and control (with smart remote)

  • Fewer connectivity ports

The problem with TVs having voice recognition remote control is that you still need a remote control.

But if you have an Alexa speaker (Echo Dot series) at home, you don’t even need to touch the remote control to change channels, find answers to your queries and so on.

(Just say, ‘Alexa’ from any corner of the room and the Echo Dot starts listening).

With this TCL TV and an Echo dot speaker, you can do exactly that!

(But if you don’t want to spend more to get an Alexa speaker, you can use the voice remote you get with this TV).

At 50-inches the TV screen can be considered large enough to enjoy 4K content to its full potential!

But most of the broadcasted content is available in Full HD resolution. So, where do you find 4K videos to watch?

Here’s where the TV’s smart features come in.

Based on Android 9.0 (Pie) version, the TV’s interface is easy to get used to and navigate.

You won’t need to study and refer the manual every time you need to change a setting or mode.

Also, the Operating system is Google certified Android which means you get the official version of all Apps.

This further ensures your TV runs glitch-free and without any frustrating lags.

Many Apps (like YouTube, Netflix etc.) come with 4K shows and movies that you can watch on your 50-inch 4K TCL TV.

All-in-all, this 50-inch TCL TV is one of the best TVs from the TCL catalogue!

Pros

  • User-friendly interface (Official Android)
  • Large App Collection (Google Play Store)
  • Superior visuals (4K UHD)
  • Voice interactive remote control
