Xiaomi has paid a lot of attention to Design in Mi Led TV 4 ( 55 inches), and it makes the TV look stylish and well-thought. The screen is just 4.9 mm in thickness, but that doesn’t that the whole TV comes at the same width because there should be space for ports, be speakers, interfaces, and motherboard. In this sense, over design language of Mi TV 4 is gorgeous.
The 55-inch variant comes with a Samsung display supporting intelligent adjustment as well as the dynamic backlight. The display panel delivers fantastic output, and the colour range doesn’t disappoint either. Even playing 4K videos was a stutter-free experience. Detailing was quite close to natural colours.
Coming to the User interface, it is one of the most robust features of Mi Led TV 4. It was so simple to use and understand that my 6-year old was able to navigate through without any guidance. Besides, the Mi Led TV 4 features Xiaomi’s “Patch Wall” software, which is an AI system that can predict content based on what you’ve watched already has been blended fantastically. Also, a provision has been made to sync in content from the set-top box so that one can use the TV’s remote control to manage it. Thus avoiding handling multiple remote controls.
Unlike LeEco, which was buying out content firms to build their content ecosystem, Xiaomi has tied up content providers to showcase movies, live TV channels and music. Though at present it is in the nascent stage still curation along with segmentation is worth appreciating.
This is where the TV beams a dud. You will get average sound output through the down-firing speakers, though it does not distort at high or low notes. Still, it seems to be quite flat to us. So, therefore, using an external speaker or a home system is recommended.
