The ES56 Series by TCL, a well-known Chinese multinational, has received an excellent response from the public. In particular, today we want to focus on the 32-inch model, a real gem. In fact, this smart TV represents the union of design, image quality and the ease and completeness of the smart section.
Aesthetically, the panel appears slightly thick, with slim bezels that leave ample viewing space. The beauty of the contents is guaranteed by HDR technology, which by making the blacks darker and deeper, enhances the contrast and the level of sharpness . On this screen, no details will hold secrets for you.
This is confirmed not by us, but by the PPI (Picture Performance Index) of 100 . It is a tool that evaluates image quality taking into consideration the most important parameters: contrast, resolution, color range and resolution. The range of colors and shades is entirely managed by the Color Extender function , which takes care of making them lively, bright and realistic.
As for the definition, we are faced with a reworking of HD Ready by the processor of the smart TV. That’s why, in the summary table at the beginning of the article, we wrote 1366 × 768 directly . The latter offers a much higher level of quality than normal HD Ready, enhancing the overall beauty of the content being broadcast.
Also with regard to the audio we can express very positive comments. TCL has implemented two full range speakers with 10 watts of power in combination with the Dolby Digital Plus sound system. For a 32 inch this is a pretty good sound power, especially when you consider the efficiency of the equalizer.
However, it will not be possible to extend the sound experience with speakers or speakers via the Bluetooth connection, as it is absent. The smart section is certainly the one that has created the most enthusiasm in users who have purchased this television. Before moving on to the positive aspects, however, we want to “get out of the way” a few small flaws :
- Response from the operating system a little too slow
- Interface not the simplest
- Inability to download some applications from the Google Play Store
However, taking into account the advantages of this TCL smart TV, we believe that there are many more points in favor of those against. First of all, the integration with Google Assistant should be emphasized , which allows you to interact vocally with the television. Consequently, thanks to the voice search, the use of the TV is much faster, more comfortable and intuitive.
Furthermore, thanks to the integrated Chromecast, the transmission of content from the devices to the TV panel takes place in just a few moments. This feature is also available for Apple devices, which until recently were excluded from this type of sharing. This smart TV is a concrete answer also for gaming enthusiasts , who will be able to experience it in a unique and innovative way.
In fact, even if you have started a game at home, you can resume it on your devices once you leave the house, without having to restart or wait to connect to the TV again. Last but not least, in the Netflix and YouTube apps you will find thousands of HDR content , for a top-of-the-range entertainment experience.
