This Hisense Smart TV was a real success. Released in 2019, this television still continues to meet the needs of many users, so much so that it is considered one of the best 50-inch devices on the market, despite some small flaws that we will talk about later. In short, we know, nothing is perfect, but this smart TV we can say has all the credentials to be considered an excellent purchase.
The price, in fact, for the features and functionalities it offers, is quite low. This is why, in most cases, users have expressed themselves by declaring that it is a TV with an excellent quality-price ratio. Speaking of quality, we immediately underline that we are essentially referring to the beauty of the images and the realism of sound.
The smart section in fact, as we will see, could offer something better, even if most of the limitations come from the VIDAA U operating system , which cannot match the completeness of Android. In any case, the visual quality is due to a set of technologies and functions combined with the efficiency of the Quad-Core processor , which optimizes the levels of contrast, sharpness and color.
In addition, the UHD 4K resolution is combined with Dolby Vision HDR , offering very realistic content, free of trails or noises and with a very high contrast. On the contrary, the contrast levels are adjusted and optimized by the UHD Upscaling function . This divides the screen into many small areas, working on every single area of the broadcast scene. That’s why, the final result is appreciable on the whole screen, without any color distortion.
In addition, the color range is entirely managed by Precision Color , a latest generation technology that makes colors and shades very realistic, lively and bright. Another positive aspect related to the image lies in the 4K decoding . In other words, this Hisense smart TV is capable of reading and playing videos in UHD 4K resolution.
As for the sound section, at the base we find the efficiency of the DTS Virtual: X system , which gives the sound a lot of depth. In fact, thanks to this technology, the bass appears intense and balanced, accompanying the beauty of the images. In short, up to now it cannot be said that this Hisense TV is not a model capable of satisfying the needs of television lovers.
However, the same cannot be said for the smart section, which in many cases failed to meet the needs of many users. First of all, the lack of Bluetooth is an aspect that could bring you some complications, especially if you usually use speakers, soundbars or subwoofers in conjunction with the television. For the connection with the smartphone instead, there is no problem, since the television is equipped with an internet connection.
A much appreciated convenience was the layout of the remote control buttons, which offers direct access to Netflix, YouTube, Rakuten and Prime Video. These in fact, together with Foxxum, Infinity, Chili, DAZN and TIMVISION, are the apps available to the smart TV. Although it cannot be said that it is lacking in entertainment, to take advantage of other streaming platforms you will have to rely on a fire stick , which will solve any of your problems.
Finally, a final advantage to underline concerns the voice interaction with the smart TV, made possible by the connection with Amazon Alexa . However, keep in mind that the television does not have a built-in voice assistant. Therefore, if you want to take advantage of the convenience of voice commands, you will need to have your own Echo device.
