Shinco 49 inches 4k Android TV: A Miraculous Wonder in The Budget Category

My search for an excellent budget 4k Android TV ended when I inadvertently, unboxed a 4k Android TV sent to me for review by an Indian TV manufacturing company that manufacturers Daiwa TV too. The TV sent to me was their 49 inches 4k Android TV, Shinco, which comes with an innovative Quantum Luminit Technology & whose picture performance is comparable to the upper range TVs of higher brands, like Samsung MU6470.
Shinco 49 inches 4k Android TV
I and my staff were really amazed to see a budget category TV performing this brilliantly. The picture quality of this TV is unbelievingly far superior to all TVs in its category.

This 49 inches TV comes with a built-in sound bar and is available in 43 & 55 inches size too. It is just that the 43-inch TV does not come with a built-in soundbar.

In the carton along with the TV, you get a two-piece tabletop stand, a manual guide, warranty card, wall mount, an air remote, a pair of batteries & one Sensy STB controller that is a very useful accessory, about which I will tell you, later, in this article.
This TV comes with a sleek & stylish design. Its bezel is ultra-slim from three sides. A sound-bar has been fused into the lower side bezel. The grill design of this soundbar enhances the overall look of this TV to impart it a tall boy appearance. The built quality of this TV is pretty good, it does not appear a budget TV from any angle.

You get 3 HDMI ports & 2 USB ports in it, out of which 1 is USB 3.0. Two HDMI ports have version 2.0, while one is there with version 2.2. It has an Ethernet port, an optical digital port, headphone jack, antenna port, SD card slot, along with inbuilt Wi-Fi.

This TV comes with an Air remote at the back of which you will find a QWERTY keypad. Though mostly, all TV remotes come from China, the quality of this remote is decent and I did not face any difficulty in using it.

Now, let's switch on this TV. This TV greets us with a Shinco logo. And, in comparison to other Android TVs, this one boots up fast.

On switching on, this TV greets you with this UI. You get many applications preloaded, which you just need to download and install. We will talk about the Android part later on, in this article.

The panel of this TV is A+ grade VA that comes with DLED backlighting. The dynamic contrast ratio is 6000000:1 & brightness of this TV is 450 Nits. Its response time is 8 ms.

This TV has built-in HDR-X with 4k enhancer. Dedicated on/off buttons for them have been provided in the settings. Apart from this TV, 4k enhancer is found only in Sony & Samsung TVs.

According to the company, HDR-X enhances each & every pixel to render enhanced colour, brightness & contrast, thereby, increasing the detailing clarity of the TV. This TV supports HDR 10. The picture details in this TV gets displayed with amazing clarity. Dark & bright parts both have much clarity in details.

This time, the company has employed Quantum Luminit Technology in its TVs, which is their own premium image processing technology in which superior class LEDs with high Wide Color Gamut and special 2 piece DBF film sheet is used to enhance colour, brightness & contrast to render images only next to a QLED TV.

In this TV, Wide Colour Gamut that has been fused with Quantum Luminit. The company claims that its TVs have more than billion colours alike Samsung QLED TVs.

If I would not have seen this TV with my own eyes I would have hardly believed that a budget TV can display this great picture performance. Whatever technology the company has employed is definitely successful in enhancing the colours of this TV along with its brightness & contrast.

The colours of this TV are \as deep as any QLED TV and the brightness, contrast, picture sharpness all is pretty good. The colour encoding system of this TV rests at NTSC 95%. The VA panel plays a major role in making the blacks much deeper. Against a dark background, you can see colours pop out on this TV. There are 5 picture modes, Standard, Dynamic, Vivid, Soft, User & Eyesafe mode. Eyesafe mode reduces strain on eyes.

The refresh rate of this TV is 60 Hz, but, in normal TV usage, we were unable to observe any motion blur it.

The viewing angles of this TV are decent considering that it has VA panel.

The picture upscaling capability is pretty effective. Low-resolution videos get upscaled on this TV to a much better resolution.

HD channels playing with such clarity is a rare occurrence in 4k TVs. Not only HD channels, but SD channels, too, look good on this TV.

For sound, this TV is graced with a fused-in soundbar that has 2 speakers giving 20 Watts power output. It has Dolby Digital & Surround Sound. Its speakers have tweeters too. The audio is very loud with deep bass deep & there is a clarity in dialogue delivery.

This is an Android TV that has Nougat Operating System. It comes with 800 Mhz Dual Core Cortex A73 Processor. The graphics Processor is dual core Mali 450 clocked at 540 Mhz. It comes with 1 GB RAM & 8 GB ROM. Though these specifications are quite low, I did not face difficulty in playing any of the applications, neither did this TV hang, even once during the testing that continued 3 days long. For watching serials or videos, these specifications are okay, but for gaming, you will definitely need a gaming console like PS4.

You can play YouTube videos in 4k resolution too, but for that, you will need high Internet speed. Jio sim can play videos only up to 1080p, after that it starts buffering.

On this TV, you get the playability of almost all favourite applications that Indians watch. Applications like Hotstar, Amazon Prime, SonyLiv, Netflix, ALTBalaji & YouTube come preloaded. You can even sideload applications on it. Jio TV & Jio Cinema was successfully sideloaded on it. You will find a lot many games and applications in their Playstore too.

One of the best things about this TV is that you don't need any external Android TV box with it and almost all applications play smoothly on it through Jio Sim also.

I have faced difficulty while playing some or the other app, in almost all TVs and Android TV boxes, but all my favourite applications played smoothly on this TV.

I want to highlight here, that Mi TV does not support Netflix, Jio TV, Amazon Prime & YouTube in 4k resolution. Blaupunkt also does not support YouTube in 4k.

The UI of this TV is pretty good that gives a smooth experience while navigating. It has content bar and it starts to give you suggestions according to the programmes that you watch regularly. While browsing contents too, you can watch TV in a small window.

The most attractive feature of this TV is the set-top box controller that you get along with this TV. You need to plug this controller in the USB port of your TV and keep the sensor in front of your set top box. After that you will be able to access the channels of your set-top box through the remote of this TV. The channels automatically get integrated into the UI of this TV and allow you an access to the thumbnail preview of each channel. You can easily see the programme being telecast on each channel.

This TV comes with Miracast, Airplay & E-share features. Through E-share, you can wirelessly enjoy the music stored on your smartphone on the good audio output of this TV's soundbar. Along with this, you can also play the videos stored on your smartphone on the big screen of this TV. Pictures & videos both get smoothly cast on this TV. However, this TV might not support the audio of some smartphones, then you get to hear the audio of the videos on your smartphone only.

This TV provides you HTML 5 browser support.

Before switching over to its cons, I would like to emphasize that whatever features are there in this TV all function very well.

Bluetooth support & voice command remote are the only features that go missing on this TV. However, you can buy a Bluetooth Transmitter to fill up this lacuna.

In my opinion, the company also misses out on one more USB port as one port remains preoccupied with the dongle of the remote. However, a USB splitter can solve this problem too.

In the budget category, this TV is par excellence!

These TVs are available on Amazon as well as PayTM Mall. But, I am not in favour of purchasing TVs from PayTM Mall as many complaints have come to me regarding duplicate & refurbished products being sold over there. The customer care cell of PayTM Mall is seller-oriented rather than being customer-friendly.

Sellers prefer PayTM Mall as over there, there is no pressure on them to maintain quality, nor, they have any fear of getting banned in case there are multiple complaints against them.

The company has 105 service centres across India.

They also have a Research & Development laboratory in China, where their team researches on manufacturing best quality TVs in a budget. Their main unit is located in Greater Noida.
