India's First Budget Smart TV With LG's webOS launched | Shinco SU50WOS1 Review

Shinco 50 inch TV With webOS: An In-depth Review Shinco SU50WOS1

Recently, the Shinco brand has launched the first Made in India 50-inch Smart TV, Shinco SU50WOS1, that comes with LG-like WebOS. The TV comes with a Universal magic remote, through which you can even operate the soundbar and set-top box connected to your TV. The settings and features that are given on this TV are not seen in any other budget category TV.


The TV comes packed in a cardboard box, on which the highlights are mentioned. Inside the box, apart from the TV, there are two pieces of a tabletop stand, some screws, a magic remote, a wall mount, and this user manual guide. The tabletop stands of this TV are metallic, which is a rarely seen feature in the budget category.
The TV is almost bezel-less from three sides, the lower bezel is also pretty slim, and, on its center, the brand name Shinco is mentioned. The screen-to-body ratio of this TV is 96%. The Tabletop stand matches perfectly with the black bezel of this TV. On the rear, it gets the same horizontal raised line design, which is commonly seen in most budget TVs. And, at the bottom, there is a broad curved box designed to boost the audio performance of this TV. The speakers come fitted within this box. Some ports are given on the left-hand side, whereas, some are fitted on the lower side. The built quality of the TV is decent, and, there is no gap between the bezel and the screen. Overall in looks, too, the TV is decent, and its built quality is better than many other TVs of the budget category. 

The built quality of the remote is good. However, as it requires two pencil cells for its operation, it appears a tad heavier than other TV remotes. Actually, it is exactly like the one that comes with LG TVs. It has an air mouse and a wheel. Apart from this, it has direct buttons to Netflix and Prime Video.

Connectivity options

The TV comes with 3 HDMI ports and two USB ports. HDMI ARC and CEC, both, are present on this TV. You can connect your Blue Ray Player, gaming console, and set-top box to this TV. It has dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v5.0. Apart from this, it has an Ethernet port, AV port, Optical Port, Headphone Jack, and an antenna port.

Specifications & Features

Now, coming to the specifications given by the company. This is a 4k resolution TV, which, like the previous models of Shinco, comes with the Quantum Luminit Technology, which enhances the colours. The TV has DLED backlighting and VA panel along with 400 Nits brightness. The refresh rate of the TV is 60 Hz, however, to reduce motion blur, there is MEMC and Tru Motion Technology, too. This TV supports HDR10 and HLG. And, its static contrast ratio is 6000:1. This Shinco TV comes with LG's webOS apart from ThinQ AI voice assistant. It has 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM. The two 20 Watts output speakers of this TV support Dolby audio along with surround sound.

Picture Quality

Now coming to the picture quality of this TV. As it comes with a VA panel, its contrast ratio is good and the Blacks, though not very deep are fair enough. The colour reproduction of this TV is good. It displays a good colour accuracy, with more of a natural colour reproduction. However, talking about the brightness of this TV; Though it is not the brightest TV in the budget category, the brightness is sufficient to view SDR contents. However, like most other budget category TVs, the brightness falls short of the requirement needed to view HDR content in its optimum quality. The motion handling capacity of this TV is certainly an upgrade over Shinco's older models. While watching normal content the motion Blur is negligible, but alike other budget TVs, motion blur is unavoidable during fast action scenes. The upscaling by this TV is decent enough. Low-resolution contents also look good on this TV. Through USB you can watch low-resolution videos in fairly good quality. HD channels look good on this TV, however, the main thing is that SD channels look very good on this 4k TV. The TV has multiple options for picture settings and you get the option of user setting even in the preset modes. While watching HDR videos, HDR gets displayed on the screen. Apart from Game, Vivid, Standard, and Movie mode, you also get Cricket Mode on it. A good feature of this TV is that on it, you get the option of picture and audio settings even when you are watching content on any application. Coming to its viewing angle; Despite having a VA panel, the viewing angle of this TV is good. Even when watching videos from the side, videos don't look much washed out.


The audio of this TV is good. Apart from being sufficiently loud, it has clarity in it. The bass, though not deep, does lend out some heaviness to dialogues. Bass is heard the most in the Movie mode. This TV has Clear Audio III Mode, through which, you can enhance the dialogue clarity. You can change the audio modes according to the room conditions as well as the content playing on the TV. This TV has a feature that resembles Samsung's Q Symphony feature. when you connect a soundbar through the optical port of this TV, you will be able to hear the sound of both your TV and soundbar at the same time. On this Shinco TV, you get 2-way Bluetooth, which allows you to play the music stored on your phone on this TV and play its audio on your headphones paired with this TV. You can also connect a Bluetooth soundbar wirelessly to this TV.


This TV comes with a Quadcore Processor with artificial intelligence along with webOS. The webOS of this TV makes it stand apart from other TVs in the budget category. In any other budget TV, you will not get LG's Smart operating system. The magic remote that comes bundled with this TV has an air mouse, which makes it convenient to fill the passwords of all applications quickly. With the help of the Air Mouse, you can open any application swiftly without the need of scrolling through all other applications. Its voice command feature is highly responsive, which understands your commands easily and promptly follows them. You get YouTube, Netflix, Zee5, Disney Hotstar, Prime video, and SonyLiv on this TV. Apart from this, there is a content store, where you can download more apps and games. Miracast functions beautifully on this TV. Casting is absolutely lag-free. As it is not an Android TV, the 1.5 GB RAM and 8 GB storage is sufficient to keep its webOS running smoothly. You can pair many compatible devices with this TV and conveniently operate them through its remote. Through this TV's remote, you can operate your set-top box and soundbar along with other compatible devices.


This TV comes with Auto low latency mode. Its decently low input lag and good response make it a fairly decent TV for gaming.


Concluding this video, I will say that this is a good TV within the budget category, which apart from having good picture quality and audio, comes with LG's webOS which is not found in any other TV of the budget category. If LG's webOS appeals to you, you can definitely opt for this TV.
