yes and no

the product unable to play 4k from android itself, it can only play it from externally (hdmi).
and the hdmi spec is quite limited... although i suspect the hdmi is v1.3...
but the tv setting there written hdmi v2.0
i hv no way to test on this.
(ps: i was able to play 4K content from MediaPlayer/Kodi, but this doesnt mean the display is UHD.
when click Info, it shown 1080p...)

the good thing is, the tv come with preload with netflix,
but fyi netflix is very stingy...
they hv strict product test before certified it to play 4k content.
i havent activate my netflix demo account, coz i havent got time to watch.

at least i know it will play 1080p... the rest i donno... yet
----

if u can accept the imperfection above...
then the tv is good...

at first i tot the tv is actually Linux SmartTV with Ocean Blue UI.
but it is really AndroidTV itself with playstore installed... (android tv ui!!!)

the game works, i would said 80% from perfection.
and some emulator is working too...

for audio it also support DTS, Dolby and passthrough.

the android ver is Marshmallow, tat mean it is last year product.
i have no problem with this...

so far everything is good.
---

the best thing i like about this tv... it have chromecast!!!
i able to cast youtube and facebook video without any account on tv.
so everyday i able to share something to the family... wub.gif

the voice remote, it is best of the best feature available for android tv
i set the voice recognition to cantonese then to mandarin...
it work!!!~
my mom love it the best, she able to search old song on youtube without typing pinyin.
btw she donno pinyin... haha
now she play it everyday...
she also able to search taiwanese hokkien tv series on youtube...
my god!!! the tv she occupied 90% of the time sweat.gif

well my mom love it the best. wink.gif

Cant seem to change picture/display settings (like color calibration for cinema, game, sports) when on androidtv mode. Possible to root it to enable it?

Seems all of those settings are only in live tv mode.

No, true quality TV is comes from Sharp Aquos or Samsung only, other brands still acceptable like Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and Hitachi can take be consider, other than those reputable brands, you will notice a bit lousy especially the colour quality, non true 4K supports, low refresh rates and compatibility issues.
