Hopefully the photos give you an idea how bright and vivid the picture is. I’ve included them from various sources , an Xbox One X, The Interview with a Vampire was from an unpaused broadcast via the TVs inbuilt satellite tuner. There’s also the TVs homepage. The Jungle book was via the Disney+ app running on the Xbox One X, I’ve been in contact with Hisense and the app might be available directly beginning of 2021. It’s got a fantastic picture and everything I’ve thrown at it has looked great, I do recommend you turn of the image smoothing if watching films as it makes it look strange, this is due to frame interpolation and is normal for high refresh rate TVs. The really big surprise for me was the sound. I’d put on Gears 5 to play for a bit with my son and was enjoying the effects and booming whizzing around as normal, now I usually use my Onkyo Surround Sound Amp as I’ve a large sub and gorgeous Floorstanders , well it turned out it wasn’t on. This was the TVs inbuilt JBL speakers with Dolby Atmos, now the Xbox One X does have wonderful Dolby Atmos sound but to mistake my usual setup astonished me, I’d actually gone to turn it down. My only bugbear is the lack of info, setup info specifically, the manual is sorely lacking and if you want to configure your HDR or do you use ARC or SPDIF there’s nothing. Out of the box setup and standard settings for standard family it’ll likely not even come up. Basically you’re getting a £2000+ type TV for a bargain.
•Build quality is decent. It wobbles a tiny bit when nudged but it’s nothing to worry about. You’d have to really knock it about to topple it. I mean really try to knock it over.•Picture is good and does an decent job at upscaling HD channels but not so hot with with SD. 4K is where the TV really shines, though. Thanks to the QLED tech, colours are good, contrast is good and HDR is good. All that is good.•It gets nice and bright at over 1000 nits but because of this, HDR can suffer a little bit with blooming around bright highlights when local dimming is activated. Not a deal breaker as it’s only really noticeable in a dark room. Ambient lighting can and does help alleviate the blooming somewhat. It’s a non issue most of the time though.The only real issue is in extremely dark scenes the screen will turn off completely and then back again when the scene brightens or changes. It’s very distracting when it happens but thankfully it’s rare. Still, not cool.•Motion isn’t great with fast panning shots causing jitter and blurring in broadcast TV and similar low frame rate stuff but it’s not so bad when viewing 60fps content. Depends on your uses.•Sound is just fine. The soundbar design at the bottom is a little misleading as there are still only 2x 10 watt speakers like every other TV but it does the job well enough. It gets loud and does sound good.Get a proper soundbar or speaker set-up if you care enough about sound.•Haven’t tried gaming yet but input lag numbers are nice and low at around 17ms for HDR and SDR both. The TV also has a native refresh rate of 120Hz BUT it seems to be broken right now. It accepts a 120Hz signal but does nothing with it. Hopefully Hisense sort that out.•Bluetooth remote is nice and weighty feeling very solid. It’s all metal with a cramped but functional keypad. Took a few days but I’m somewhat used to the layout now so hardly need to look at what I’m doing. Has a built-in mic too so you can use Alexa or Google home. Alexa specifically doesn’t need any extra hardware, it’s buil-in.You can also use the mic function to pull up TV settings and change channels/settings quickly with your voice.•The smart features are all here with all the apps you’d expect. Browser, YouTube, Netflix and all that. Loads to choose from if you’re into that stuff.You get the occasional freeze and lag spike navigating menus and settings but it’s mostly quick and snappy. Better than some more expensive TVs however….So yeah. So far so good apart from the broken 120Hz and screen turning off completely in really dark scenes. Hopefully Hisense can fix a few things with an update.
