The TCL S470G is a budget-friendly LCD TV that might not satisfy if you're looking for top-notch picture quality; it performs poorly in both dark and bright rooms, which could be a concern for various viewing environments. Its gaming performance is also rated poorly, so it might not be the best choice if gaming is a priority. For general content like news, talk shows, reality TV, cartoons, and animation, it's considered poor as well, which suggests that it might not deliver the best experience for everyday watching. It does offer good color accuracy right out of the box and good upscaling of lower-resolution content, which can be positives for those less concerned about the aforementioned weaknesses. Its 60Hz screen and limited brightness capabilities mean it's not tailored for high-end home theater setups. With only three HDMI ports, connectivity might be an issue if you have multiple devices. It doesn't support advanced HDR formats like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision, which limits its performance with HDR content, but it does support HLG and basic HDR10. In terms of sound, it's not equipped with great speakers, so an external sound system might be needed for a better audio experience. Overall, the TCL S470G might be appropriate if price is a primary concern and you're willing to compromise on picture and sound quality. Give Feedback

Sports:
3.2
The TCL S470G has a poor motion processing capability, which can result in blurriness during fast-moving scenes common in sports. Additionally, it struggles with reflections handling, meaning that if placed in a bright room, glare might interfere with the viewing experience.

"On the bright side the S4 does have great viewing angles that can make it an excellent family TV. It has great color coverage, its input lag is extremely low, it supports Dolby Vision and comes with Google TV."
