Xiaomi Mi TV 4X 65 inch review: Value for money product

There are lot of options in the market while considering to purchase a new TV but sometimes we need to make some sacrifices for the product to be in our budget. Xiaomi has brought a value for money TV which fulfills your demand without creating a hole in the pocket.

The Mi TV 4X 65 is an 65-inch 4K HDR smart television. We have tested this TV a lot and lets find out if its worth your money or not.

Design:
Since this is an affordable TV the design is simplistic. The build quality is good but not excellent. The TV has metallic frame with MI logo in the bottom. The bezels are minimal and design of the TV keeps attention focused on the screen. The body of the TV is made of plastic and it can be mounted on the wall. If you want to place it on table then you will need a large one since  the size of TV is massive.

Display:
This is the most important aspect to consider while purchasing a new TV. The display is massive with 65 inch LED panel with 4K-resolution 3840x2160 pixels and 60Hz standard refresh rate. In addition to this the TV supports 10-bit HDR content and all this processing is done by Amlogic A53-based quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

The colour reproduction is amazing and . 4K HDR recreates true-to-life images  the only downside is the LED panel since they are not capable to delivering deep blacks. SO if you are watching a a content with dark or night scenes then you will notice that pure black scenes are displayed grayish. Well this is the fault with all LED TV’s in the market and OLED TV’s are able to deliver full backs but using that would have increased the cost of the product.

Sound:
The Mi TV 4X 65 has bottom-firing speakers, with 20W of sound output coming from two identical drivers along with the support of Dolby and DTS HD audio formats. The sound quality is not upto the mark. Well it serves its purpose but if you want to have Crystal clear sound with punchy base then you might have to consider buying a soundbar. Also if you are buying this massive TV then for cinematic experience you will need a sound bar.

Specifications:
The TV features three HDMI ports, two USB ports, and one antenna input facing to the riggt side of the television. The AV inputs, S/PDIF and Ethernet port face downwards. The power cable is on the left side of the TV and is long enough to reach another side ot the TV. Also the TV has a Bluetooth and HDMI ARC, so plenty of audio devices can be connected with this TV.

Remote and Features:
The remote made entirely of plastic and is very light. The design of the remote is simple and minimal. This minimal design helps in easy navigation through the TV OS. There are hotkeys for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, these are buttons required to use their apps in the TV and Xiaomi's own PatchWall interface, which is essentially a launcher on top of Android TV.

The best feature of this TV is that it has built-in Chromecast functionality. You can cast whatever you are viewing on your smartphone. This is very handy and I usually cast the videos playing on my smartphone to the TV to experience theater like experience.

In addition to this, the remote has a Google Assistant button, and the voice assistant functionality works fine, 

Software and interface:
The TV has a Patchwall v3.2  which is the Xiaomi's Android based OS. Additionally the remote has a dedicated button to move to Patchwall UI or stock Android UP. I liked using Patchwall since it has very interactive UI, supports 15 languages and also we get auto suggestions from all the apps based on our search history.

The worst thing about this TV is the boot process as it was incredibly slow, it takes around 30-40 seconds to start and load the OS. However, if you turned off TV from remote then it saves all the data and turns on within 5-10 secs.

Verdict:
This TV is highly affordable priced at INR 55,000. therefore, we can forget the little bad things about it. Hence, this TV is an overall package and is must for people who want bigger screen at a budget price and also want top notch quality.
