Thomson 49 inch 4k android tv 49 oath 9000 review, Thomson LED TV Price in India, Specification, Feature: Thomson launched its new official Android range in the month of June. The company launched 43-inch, 49-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch TV models in it. They were launched with the support of Android 8.1 Oreo. We have reviewed 49 of these models. After using it for a long time, now we are telling you its review.
The company has priced the 49-inch (49 OATH 9000) model at Rs. 34,999. This is an Ultra HD (4K) Smart LED TV. In such a situation, this TV is one of the most economical TV models. Thomson had earlier also launched affordable TV models, but was based on open source Android and their remote voice command was also not given.
Talking about some of the special features of this new TV model, it has support for HDR 10 support, 4K YouTube content support, built-in Chromecast, Bluetooth, Netflix Soapart and Google Assistant with voice commands.
Design and connectivity options:
First of all talk about box content, here apart from TV and remote, table stand and wall mount has been given. This is a good thing because wall mounts are usually not seen and installation of wall mount is also very easy. That is, you do not have to worry too much. However, in terms of design, the weight of the TV is a bit more, but not so much that anyone has problems. According to the rest of the price, its design is also much better. You cannot say enough premium by watching this TV. But the body material used and its finishing is quite good. The body is plastic, but there is no rough edge anywhere. The other side bezels are also very thin. Here the spec grill has been given place in the bottom, which has been integrated much better according to the design.
Talking about the back panel, three HDMI ports, two USB ports, an RJ-45 LAN port for internet and AV out, AV in, headphone jack and antenna have been provided. At the same time, control buttons are given in the right bottom. Here almost all the ports are down firing and only one LAN, USB and HDMI port is provided in the sides. In such a situation, when you mount the TV, there can be a problem. That is, you have to do all the wiring before mounting the wall. But the overall body and design is quite good.
Thomson uses Samsung’s VA, A + LED panel in the 49-inch (49 OATH 9000) model. This panel is commonly used in many TV models. This Samsung panel offers much better colors and brightness. This 49-inch model has a standard 60Hz refresh rate and a contrast ratio of 500000: 1. Its maximum brightness is 450 nits. Also, this TV model has support for HDR 10 with 4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) resolution. It also has modes like User, Cinema, Sport, Vivid and Hi-Bright, so that the image quality can be enhanced. The good thing is that this panel is not reflective. Talking about overall picture quality, this quality ‘wow’ is not worth saying here, but in terms of price you will not complain. We only have some complaints about the black levels. This special edition is also to be given 4K content support for YouTube here.
Here we will talk about the performance of remote, audio quality, software and hardware. Talking about the specifications of this TV, it has a quad-core processor, A53 CPU, MaliT860 GPU, 2.5GB and 16GB storage. Storage can be used to download new apps. This TV runs on Android TV operating system. Here Android Oreo has been supported. Along with Google services such as built-in Chromecast, Play Store and Play Games, Google Play Store has also been supported to download apps and games. That is, software and hardware are much better.
Talking about actual performance, it takes a lot of time to load first. However, you should not understand that this TV is so slow. This automatically connects the previously added Bluetooth devices and WiFi networks after being turned on. This TV is very fast to process and operate. That is, you will not have any slight lag. Talking about the Android TV interface, the recently used apps and content are visible here. Also, Google Assistant is also seen in front.
The response time of Google Assistant on voice command is also very fast and it works well. However WiFi also needs to be fast. Playback support for Chromecast is also much better. Voice commands and Bluetooth support are not available in Thomson’s earlier TV models. But in this TV, the company has removed that complaint. In this case, the QWERTY keyboard or type is not required. The overall interface is very easy access and clean and supports Netflix including apps like ZEE5, Hotstar, SonyLIV, Jio Cinema and Voot.
Talking about the remote, there is a plethora of buttons here. But its design is quite slick and the buttons are very smooth to operate. Also, the design of Arrow Key is much better. It has a Bluetooth remote as well as an IR blaster. Apart from this, the special thing about the remote is that it has a direct button for Netflix and Google Play. Now speaking of audio output, this is the part which has disappointed us the most. Here are 30W stereo speakers with Dolby audio and DTS technology. But the audio quality lacks channel separation, crisp, surround and loudness. In this case, you will have to connect the soundbar or speaker separately for better audio. The good thing is that due to Bluetooth, you can connect it wirelessly.
Now the question is, should you buy this TV? So let us tell you that it is an affordable 4K smart TV with features like HDR 10, Bluetooth, Google Assistant, official Android, Netflix support, in-built Chromecast, voice command based Bluetooth remote and 4K YouTube content support. In such a situation, money can be invested in it. You may only have complaints about the picture quality and audio quality. But it can be ignored in terms of price.
