mi tv 4 55.jpg


At ₹ 39,999, Xiaomi is putting up a good competition.

A few things I heard which were not interesting about Mi TV 4 55"

1. No Hotstar support, yet

2. No Chromecast support

3. No Play Store

Interestingly, Mi TV 4 will work with a variety of set-top boxes available in the Indian scenario. They say it is plug in the set-top box and forget it. The AI powered Patchwall UI will take care of your STB UI.

does not look that vibrant. maybe the reviewer is using low exposure or low lights or bad camera.

HDR TVs are sold at 80k +, if I remember correctly[DOUBLEPOST=1519120863][/DOUBLEPOST]
Would this be good choice for Ps4 Pro?
What would you look for ? Refresh rate ?[DOUBLEPOST=1519120916][/DOUBLEPOST]

Thought the same with iGyaan video. Digit and GeekyRanjit videos looked much better.

One review said the sound was not great. Also, no AV video out, only co-axial

@paarkhi, yup the price point is crazy good for a 4K hdr tv set.
@meetdilip, av out is of no concern now days since there are lots of other electronic devices through which you can record or stream content now. those days are gone where if we lost one episode, we cannot see it again. now most episodes are shown at least thrice a day plus available to stream online plus stb's have recording facility in them.

i think the picture is dull because its in HDR. it was like a head smacking moment. everything in hdr looks washed out and dull compared to normal tv because the colour range is much much higher in hdr. i guess its normal then for a hdr tv.

Refresh rates - according to specs this has just 60Hz and 8ms response times.

Power: 155W :O I wonder why it requires so much power? led tv can easily run in 100w or less now.

No HDR standard support. No Dolby Vision, No HDR10 and definitely not HLG. The HDR thing is just snake oil in this. I'd not make my decision based on the HDR performance on this because it'd be pathetic. But for just 4K resolution, it is a wonderful price.

Sounds good on paper considering at this price point.
1. No Hotstar support, yet

3. No Play Store
I read somewhere that you can install apps via USB and even YouTube isn't available by default.
User reviews will clear everything in few days.

The first sale is on 22 nd Feb.

Digit review said that Xiaomi will soon allow apps on Xiaomi phones to work on this TV. Not sure when it will be available. There was also talk about sideloading of apps.

For me, no Play Store and no Chromecast is a lack lusture deal. You will miss a lot of apps.[DOUBLEPOST=1519145185][/DOUBLEPOST]Latest video by iGyann. I can see Netflix and PlayStore in the video added to the TV. Not sure how he put them there

In the above video, they say it is not great for gaming with 8 ms response time and 60 Hz, but it is not bad either.

You will have to download an APK of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video App and install it on the MI TV via a USB drive


Other apps can be side-loaded - Sahu shows us a cool feature where you can download apps to your phone, and then automatically side-load them on the TV using the Mi Remote app.

You can buy a chromecast/firestick and use it with this tv.[DOUBLEPOST=1519192329][/DOUBLEPOST]
iGyaan video says that even after installing Netflix app, it is not working.
iirc he did cast netflix and it works with HDR right?[DOUBLEPOST=1519192420][/DOUBLEPOST]I bought a 55inch 1080p LG Led for 63k after offers. Mi tv is a damn good deal. 40k for 4k with excellent panel plus it looks cool than my LG for sure.

I was just checking for Chroma. Could be a good monitor.
