If you prioritize picture quality over cost, the TCL S450R could be the right choice as its overall picture quality is slightly better. However, if you're looking to save some money and need a TV with a wider viewing angle, the TCL S470G is a more affordable option. Neither model is particularly good for gaming, and both have fair performance in bright rooms. For sports, movies, and general TV watching, the S450R offers fair quality, whereas the S470G generally has poorer performance, with the exception of sports content where it does fair. The S450R has better black uniformity, which is advantageous for watching in dark environments, while the S470G has better gray uniformity, which can be beneficial for sports watching. Both TVs support HDR but lack advanced features like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision. They are also comparable in their capability to be used as monitors. Keep in mind, neither TV is expected to excel in audio performance, so an external sound system might be necessary for a richer audio experience. Give Feedback

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.
