The TCL C711 series is a product that amazed us , and unfortunately, if it weren’t for the little attention paid to the shipping process, it would only have gotten positive reviews from those who bought it. So yes, we cannot help but highlight this problem, which however is not the cause of the Chinese multinational.
This smart TV model is truly innovative, elegant and complete. The design, as can be seen from the image above, is simply modern. The panel is slim, and the absence of the frames leaves a large viewing space. In fact, the aesthetics are very reminiscent of OLED screens, known for their beauty and refinement.
In addition to the design, which is absolutely a plus for us, the main features are also quite remarkable:
- Screen technology: QLED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Operating system: Android 9.0
- Internet and Wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 3
Yes, the backlight technology of the screen is QLED , which is characterized by a high visual quality. Colors appear brighter and more realistic, contrast and sharpness levels are optimized, and visual depth appears better than with regular LED screens. At the same time, the beauty of the images is also guaranteed by HDR Premium and Dolby Vision .
These two cutting-edge technologies bring dramatic improvements to every single piece of content, making it appear more realistic than ever. In fact, the visual quality was one of the most appreciated elements also by users, with whom we absolutely agree. As for the audio, unlike the TCL C811 series , we have less power here.
In fact, the integrated speakers are able to guarantee up to 20 watts of output power. However, thanks to the efficiency of Dolby Atmos , the sound experience is not compromised in the slightest. Indeed, the audio appears very engaging, managing to optimally accompany the visual content. The most excited part, however, is the smart one.
The Android operating system in fact, never disappoints, except for the navigation of the menu, perhaps not too intuitive. For the rest, however, it is very complete, especially as regards the apps . In fact, you can download all the ones you want at the Google Play Store. Another advantage lies in the integration of Google Assistant , which allows you to take advantage of the convenience of voice commands.
To turn this function on and off, all you have to do is enable the button on the back of the panel. If you want, you can also connect Alexa , to make interaction with the smart TV even faster. However, as several users point out, the connection is a bit complicated, and doesn’t always “go smoothly”.
In short, certainly some improvements could be made, but considering the beauty of the design, the QLED screen, the high visual and sound quality, and the efficiency of the Android 9.0 operating system, for us this TCL C711 is to be considered an investment. Also, the value for money is really good.
