TCL P2 L49P2US 4K UHD LED Smart TV

Best 50 inch 4k TVs in India under 50,000 - TCL P2 L49P2US 4K UHD LED Smart TV

Introduction:

TCL is today one of the top 3 TV manufacturers in the world. They have gone from strength to strength across the world. In India too, the brand is gaining wider acceptance. They have product offerings in all sizes. This model, the P2 L49P2US has a long and impressive feature list. Let’s take a look in our detailed review whether the performance matches up with the feature list.

Picture Quality:

This TCL TV supports HDR apart from 4K. HDR stands for High Definition Range imaging. HDR improves the ratio of light to dark on your TV. This makes the bright parts of the picture appear brighter and the dark parts look darker. The current accepted standard for HDR is HDR 10. Your TCL TV thus will delivery superior clarity for all programming.

This TV has a refresh rate of 60 Hz which is standard for TV viewing. It sports a slim golden colored bezel that looks attractive and will go well in your living room. This TV also has a 64 bit MEMC chip. MEMC stands for motion estimation and motion compensation. It makes fast moving action flow smoothly on your TV without any jerking or blurring.

The TV features a 1.5GHz CPU, 6 Core ARM GPU, 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB of inbuilt memory. These stats are impressive. But, they will not play a major role in your TV viewing experience. They are geared more towards gamers.

Sound Quality:

The total sound output from this TCL TV is 16W. The sound is quite loud in a regular sized room. If you are a sound enthusiast, you should consider getting a sound bar along with the TV.

Connectivity Options:

TCL has provided 3 HDMI, 2 USB and 1 VGA port on this TV. It also has a digital optical cable out for connecting it to a soundbar.

While TCL terms this TV a Smart TV, it is not as Smart as we would like it to be. It comes pre-loaded with a few apps like YouTube. Since the TV is not yet certified by Google, you will not have access to all TV apps available on the Android play store. This is a let down and you will have to find other ways to access your favorite streaming content. The options are to connect your laptop via HDMI or to get a streaming stick (like Amazon Firestick or Google Chromecast).

Warranty and after sales:

TCL has provided a generous warranty of 1.5 years on the TV.

Additional features:

TCL has provided a few nifty features on this TV to make it easier to share media. There is an option of bluetooth audio. So if you feel like listening to some music from your TV speakers, you can connect your phone to the TV via bluetooth.

TCL also has its own app called the nScreen app which can cast photos and videos from your phone onto the TV.

Value for Money:

TCL is one of the most affordable TVs on this list, if not the most. It provides strong value at its price point. With the global brand name, you are getting an excellent deal.

The Good
  • Good picture quality with HDR built-in
The Bad
