75R635 from TCL : Test and analysis

What about the new TCL 75R635 ?

TCL ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this 75R635, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 74.5 inches.
We are faced to a rather large screen.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of TCL have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Through our review today, you will understand why the TCL 75R635 is ranked among the best TVs of the moment.

TV design presentation TCL 75R635

Sober but in line with current trends. TCL has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that TCL has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

75R635 from TCL – The screen

The TCL has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. In addition, with a screen of 74.5 inches, the 75R635 belongs to the series of large models in its range. In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
With a frequency of 48 Hz, you can forget about using this TV in game or home theater mode. image shifts can be important and the accuracy (compared to the original source) is very average.
Finally, TCL has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

TV sound presentation TCL 75R635

The TCL 75R635 is not satisfied with displaying stunning image quality. Indeed, it also pleasantly surprised us with its well-made audio performance.
The television set is equipped with  two loudspeakers and provides a sound power of 12 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 75R635 TCL is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

75R635 from TCL – Embedded intelligence

On the software side, the TCL 75R635 is equipped with the operating system Roku TV. You have the opportunity to explore the world of entertainment.
You will also be able to access the Internet, either through your Wi-Fi connection, or for the most geek among you via the LAN; you will then be able to download a whole bunch of applications and movies.

The connection system of the TCL 75R635

All the available connectivity makes it possible to cover current needs.
With a number of connections below the average of its range, you will have to choose which appliance(s) in your home you need to connect to your TV.

This model has a total of 11 connections, not too bad. The TCL considers that with the75R635 the consumer will have to make a precise choice because he won’t be able to connect many devices at the same time .

In clear, the connections available on this model are:
1 USB port, 4 HDMI ports, 5 antenna inputs, 1 component plug (Video)
