Xiaomi Mi TV 4 FIIL Noise Can­cel­la­tion Head­phones Sam­sung Galaxy A8+

Xiaomi’s first LED TV launched

in India is the per­fect blend of style with func­tion­al­ity. It is the world’s thinnest LED TV, made with 4.9-mm-thick frame­less panel from Sam­sung. The 55-inch Ul­tra HD (4k) TV with HDR sup­port has nar­row bezels on the sides that en­hance the view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. It comes with Dolby au­dio which is good enough for a small room; but for an even more im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence an ad­di­tional sound source will be a good idea.

The TV has a cus­tomised PatchWall UI that puts con­tent at the top. The UI is sim­i­lar to that of Ama­zon’s FireTV stick with sub­heads such as VIP, Movies and TV Shows; it cus­tomises the con­tent sug­ges­tion as per us­age. To lever­age the Smart TV func­tion­al­ity, Xiaomi has tied up with 10 con­tent part­ners in­clud­ing Hot­star, TVF and Hungama. This elim­i­nates the need to plug in ex­ter­nal me­dia source or down­load apps, as the con­tent is dis­played on the screen, ready to be played. The free con­tent can be streamed in­stantly; but you need to log in to ac­cess the paid ser­vices. How­ever, the two most pop­u­lar con­tent part­ners – Net­flix and Ama­zon Prime Video – are not yet avail­able on this plat­form, which is a big let­down. There is no app store to in­stall the two apps ei­ther; one has to get it from the .apk files us­ing
