If price is a major consideration for you, the TCL S350R is often significantly less expensive than the Hisense A4H, which may make it a more appealing choice. However, if you value color accuracy and display performance for general usage out of the box, the Hisense A4H has better colors and gray uniformity, which could enhance your viewing experience when watching colorful content or dealing with scenes that have large areas of similar color, like sports fields. On the other hand, if you intend to use your TV in a bright room, neither of these models excels, so you might experience some glare and reflections. Both TVs have limited connectivity options, but the Hisense A4H has two HDMI ports if connecting multiple devices is important to you. Neither TV is particularly well-suited for gaming or watching movies due to their poor overall picture quality. If you're interested in access features, the TCL S350R offers voice commands, which the Hisense A4H lacks. Remember also to consider the long-term costs, as a budget upfront price might lead to less satisfaction and the need for a sooner replacement. Give Feedback

About Hisense

Hisense, a Chinese TV manufacturer, entered the US market in approximately 2011 and has since acquired TV divisions from various companies such as Toshiba, Sharp, Hitachi, and NEC. Currently ranking as the fourth largest vendor in terms of sales volume, Hisense aims to capture a wide range of TV budget segments. They offer exceptional value with TVs that often outperform their competitors at similar price points, making them a compelling choice for consumers. In the US, they use Google TV as their smart TV software which provides the largest app selection and a very modern user interface, however it is not as user friendly as the software from other vendors.

About TCL

TCL, the highly recognizable TV brand from China, has firmly established itself as the second-largest manufacturer in terms of sales volume. Renowned for striking an impressive balance between affordability, picture quality, and design, TCL TVs deliver a compelling overall package. While they have traditionally excelled in the low-end and midrange TV segments, TCL has recently made remarkable strides in the realm of high-end televisions, introducing impressive models that rival top competitors. Most TCL TVs use Roku software which is very user friendly and easy to use, but they have a few other models that use Google TV which has the largest app selection, but is not as user friendly as Roku.
