LeEco affordable televisions could be game changers in India. The most affordable of the lot is the LeEco Super3 X55 4K UHD Smart TV and it is now with us for review. The TV shows a lot of promise and while we are in the process of reviewing the TV, we bring to you a quick look around of the TV. So, without any further ado, let’s begin
While the display panel seems to have very good colour saturation, it does seem a tad dim. We are yet to test the TV through and through, but first impressions suggest that the panel could have been brighter.
The curvy stand on the LeEco Super3 X55 gives it a really premium and unique look. It's not a very big TV, nor is it overly thin, but the stand adds a personality of its own. It's also quite sturdy and we see no wobbles.
The navigation keys are on the left side of the TV. Many modern TV-makers skip many of these buttons, but LeEco is sticking to the guns. It's something many would appreciate.
All the ports are at the back — an HDMI, PC input (VGA, 3.5mm Audio in), LAN, audio out, AV combined output, RF and optical sound output.
Rest of the ports are on the left side — SD card reader, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, 2 x HDMI, 3.5mm audio out.
Since this is a smart TV and can make use of a webcam, LeEco has mounted a USB 3.0 port right on the the top for the same.
The LeEco Super3 X55 is a not a very slim TV. It is 15.5mm wide. Here is the thickness of the of the TV, compared to the Xiaomi Mi 5, which is just 7.3mm thin. The thinness really doesn't matter much, but it's worth mentoning, still.
The bezels and edges are quite thin, which is appreciable.
The remote of the LeEco Super3 X55 is small and functional. The TV runs on Android 5.0, but with LeEco's own eUI. To be clear, this isn't the Android TV OS. Rather, eUI acts more like a true OS on this TV.
The remote can take voice functions, although the feature seems to be under development right now. There aren't many buttons on the remote, but it's responsive.
LeEco's eUI simplifies navigation to an extend, and it's very fast for a TV OS. It is definitely the fastest in the market right now.
One can download various apps and games from the LeEco Store. Of course, the app ecosystem is quite weak right now. We found none of the popular streaming apps, including Netflix, but LeEco's own content library is still quite vast.
This message pops up when you try to use the voice function on the remote. Interestingly, this conflicts with the voice function on the YouTube app as well.
