Realme, the leading smartphone brand unveils the realme TV via the #realmeTechLife launch in a Facebook Live stream today (March 2).
The program aims to elevate the lifestyle of Filipinos to experience a more convenient and efficient daily life. It allows everyone to live smartly with a 360° digital experience from the full range of realme IoT-enabled products.
Along with realme watch s (pro), these are the first two product line-ups by #realmeTechLife making a debut in the Philippine market starting March 3.
Before the launch, we were able to experience the realme TV therefore, we are happy to share our thoughts about it in this review.
Introducing realme TV
It is powered by Android TV and comes with pre-installed video streaming apps with the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime videos, and Youtube among others.
In addition, Goggle applications like Google Play Store are made available giving users more flexibility to install applications of their choice.
Most importantly, there’s a built-in Chromecast app available, a technology that can synchronize video programs, movies, and other video apps to a smart TV by pairing a smartphone via Google.
Likewise, to pair devices for casting, simply connect to the same WiFi connectivity via Google, and hola you’re devices are now interconnected.
It looks premium!
The simplicity of the aesthetics highlights its built and design. Not too plain, not too fancy, and surely can fit any interior.
Moreover, Its premium edge-to-edge bezel-less design, with the super-thin screen-to-edge ratio is one of its assets.
Above all, the design gives it a more premium feel versus other smart TVs in the same price range with bulky protruding borders.
The cinematic experience with realme TV!
realme’s Android TV boasts a 108cm screen size, a 1980 x 1080 resolution, and a 16:9 screen ratio. What we worry about most given its specification and price category is the entertainment value of this smart TV.
Other Smart TVs suffer from low to unbalanced picture quality, but that’s not the case with this device, all thank’s to its signature Chroma Boost Engine.
The said technology enhances the overall picture quality, and clarity for overall much more stunning visuals. In other words, it can deliver a crystal clear movie experience.
On the other hand, its ultra-high brightness of up to 400+ nits peak makes its screen clearly visible even when it’s placed in bright rooms.
Aside from the pre-installed Netflix, we also stream in Full HD (1080P) via the WeTV app, a video streaming service where we have VIP Premium subscriptions.
All our hesitation went away when the epic Chinese drama “The Untamed” starts playing in Full HD*. Sure, it delivers an impressive entertainment value by showcasing a crisp, and detailed video quality.
Also, the sound quality is a stand-out because of its Dolby Audio, Speakers, as a result, our experience is as if we are inside the cinema.
Dolby Audio is a technology that can split and play sounds in discreet channels from different sides (front, side, and rear) and create a surround sound effect for an even more immersive experience.
*Please take note that to achieve an impressive FHD streaming quality, you will need to have a stable internet connection.
Is it value-for-money?
realme knows that Filipinos truly value their hard-earned money, and it gives the company more motivation to continue to offer devices that are innovative yet practical for consumers’ budgets.
For their first Smart TV offering, they incorporate several features only available on high-end counterparts, but you can have it all first-hand with the new realme TV.
