If you prioritize overall picture quality, especially for movies and gaming, the TCL QM8 is the superior choice, providing a much better experience but at a higher price. However, if you're on a budget and mainly watch the news, talk shows, or reality TV, the TCL S470G will save you money. It offers respectable performance for the price but won't be as impressive in dark or bright rooms. The TCL QM8 has a better sound system, higher refresh rate, and supports more advanced HDR formats, which improves the viewing experience for HDR content. Keep in mind, the S470G might better suit well-lit rooms and offers wider viewing angles, due to its different screen type. 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.
