WHAT YOU WILL LOVE ABOUT THIS TCL C8 TV!
Design & Display
TCL C8 has a sleek and elegant appearance. It can be wall-mounted or kept on a shelf. It completely depends on you. Coming to one of the selling points of this TV, the display is full 4K UHD. It has Dolby Vision and HDR 10+, which means that the brightness, colors, and contrasts of this TV are better than many others out there.
The picture quality is exceptional and you will feel the content being watched is real. It has Motion Enhancement and Motion Control as well.
This is where the TCL C8 definitely takes a lead among others. It has an Onkyo 2.2 Soundbar, which has two speakers and a flawless audio system. There can be dozen people sitting in a room and you all can hear completely fine. It can provide you a home theater experience without even having a theater. You can’t get a better sound system in the price tag this TV carries.
TCL C8’s software is one of its unique and distinguishing features. It runs on the Android operating system, which is a much-simplified version of the Android you use on your phone. The best part about this system is that when you set it up, you do everything through your phone without any hassle. The TV will be synced to your Gmail account. It also comes with some pre-loaded apps like Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Store among others. It also has a built-in Chromecast too.
What makes the software of this TV an absolute treat is the voice commanding system. This means you can sit on your couch and just boss your TV to change the channel or switch the show. What more do you want?
WHAT NOT TO LIKE ABOUT TCLC8 TV!
While Android is what powers this TV and adds life to it, there might a setback to it as well. Just as with your phones, it has bugs and can cause a lag in performance sometimes (though not usually). Safe to say, the bugs are minor and are updated by the company to resolve every now and then. There is nothing to worry about.
Noticing from the list of likes and dislikes mentioned above, you already might have an idea of where this review is leading. Overall, we love TCL C8 – the features, specifications, quality, performance, price, and everything in between. It offers value for money and is the best TV in the market for what you pay. It has left the staunchest rivals behind when it comes to offering the best to their customers. While Android OS has problems every now and then, they are just as quickly resolved. This is one thing you should be ready to overlook if you want so much in one TV without getting bankrupt.
