What about the new Hisense 55A7100F ?

Recently Hisense has released information about its new model of television . It is the 55A7100F.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
This television is delivered with a  Ultra HD 4K resolution.  With a diagonal of 54.6 inches, this mid-range model canbe considered as a rather cheap television .
Through our review today, you will understand why the Hisense 55A7100F is ranked among the best TVs of the moment.

The design of the Hisense 55A7100F

Sober but in line with current trends. Hisense 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 Hisense has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

The screen of the Hisense 55A7100F

The Hisense 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 this new model, Hisense confirms one of its technological choices. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. 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.
Designed with a frequency of 50 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Ultra HD 4K quality resolution.
In conclusion on the display, with the 55A7100F Hisense makes the choice of the mid-range. No more.
