TCL P616 is a series that, in our opinion, would really have unlimited potential, were it not that shipments lower the value of smart TVs. This, however, is not a lack of the Chinese multinational, which we must admit has managed to churn out very interesting products. All the above formats, in fact, are equipped with latest generation technologies and functions .
Here are the technical details:
- Screen technology: LED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Operating system: Android 9.0
- Internet and Wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 3
Before talking about images, sound and smart sections, we would like to say a few words about the design of this new 2020 series. As you can see from the image above, the aesthetics of the television is very linear, slim and light. The panel, as well as the bezels, is ultra-thin , which also makes it an extra touch for home décor.
Moving on to the real substance of these TCL P616s, we must immediately talk about the visual quality , which is amazing. The highest resolution (UHD 4K) shifts with the most advanced HDR technology: Smart HDR . The latter not only improves contrast and sharpness levels, but transforms low resolution content into 4K UHD content.
This way, your entertainment will always be top of the line. In addition, we also have Micro Dimming technology , which takes care of optimizing brightness levels by dividing the screen into more than 100 sections. The final result is therefore very homogeneous and well calibrated on the whole panel. When it comes to audio, TCL has relied on the Dolby Audio sound system , known for the quality with which it transmits sound.
However, we believe that for this single situation, the Chinese multinational could have done something more. The smart TV has two 8 watt down fire speakers , which unfortunately penalize the bass a lot. The dialogues, on the other hand, enjoy a good quality. The smart section, on the other hand, is comparable to the completeness of the technologies linked to the panel for content reproduction. In other words, he lacks nothing.
The Android 9.0 operating system is fast, intuitive and efficient, with an easy-to-navigate interface. Inside the smart TV there are already the most known and used apps of the moment, such as Netflix and YouTube. However, more can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, including Disney + .
The management of the television is very simple and convenient, as it is equipped with Google Assistant and Alexa . This means that, to interact with the TV, you don’t necessarily have to use the remote control, but your voice. However, in order to take advantage of this convenience, you will need to purchase a remote control equipped with Bluetooth separately , as the one supplied does not have one.
In short, there are some small flaws, but overall we are very satisfied with this TCL P616. As many users point out, it is a smart TV with an excellent quality-price ratio , even if, clearly, the more you go up in the air, the higher the price will be.
