The TCL S446 is generally better for gaming with its faster response time and slightly better in bright rooms. It's also slightly more expensive than the S450G. The TCL S450G, on the other hand, offers better dark room performance, which can be beneficial for movies and supports newer HDR formats like Dolby Vision. The S446 is better for sports content and has slightly better speakers. Both TVs are budget-friendly options, so the choice comes down to whether you prioritize gaming and sports viewing or movie watching in darker environments. 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.
