Here's a review on the Verge. Not sure if it's the same model as being sold here

after a weekend with TCL 55E17NUS I can say:


 - almost happy with Android TV. But I'm not sure why, but home screen (where you select apps, settings, etc ) is dimmed color, it's darker then viewed movie/video. I'm yet to investigate as it is not a problem on xiaomi mi box 4k.


 - lots of pre-installed crappy apps :(


 - plex/kodi runs awesome


 - we are impressed with 4k quality, we watched blue planet 2 and OMG the details!


 - I'm yet to add freeview channels


 - I'm missing voice control, it's doable with smart phone, but I want to do it with the remote. 


 - remote is not bluetooth? it needs to be pointed to TV (I want to order xiaomi bluetooth voice remote)


We also watched couple movies (the shape of water and new jumanji) in full-hd. Nothing but great.

OK so HDR is probably not going to happen.


But does it support HDMI 2.0 or better?
