If you're looking for a TV with better color accuracy out of the box and plan to mainly watch cartoons and animation, the TCL S435 would be the better choice. However, it doesn't perform well in bright rooms and isn’t great for gaming or watching sports. On the other hand, the Toshiba C350LU is a more budget-friendly option that offers the best color gamut, making it a great choice for vivid and diverse colors. It supports more HDR formats like Dolby Vision and HLG, which can enhance viewing experience for compatible content. Although it has good color, its overall picture quality is lower, and it may not perform well in dark rooms. Both TVs have their limitations; the right one for you depends on what content you prioritize and how much you're willing to spend. Give Feedback

"The TCL 4-Series is so inexpensive and capable you might start to question why there are any multithousand-dollar TVs at all. The 4-Series setup is intuitive and easy. If you're just looking for an easy-to-use TV with decent picture, this is an excellent place to start."

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.
