As mentioned a little earlier in the review, the Hisense 50-inch 4K HDR Android TV (50A71F) remote is practically identical to that of the Vu Premium 4K Android TV; the small differences include the obvious Hisense logo at the bottom, the bottom row of buttons having different functions, and a proper Disney+ Hotstar logo on the corresponding hotkey. The power button, hotkeys, D-pad, and Android TV navigation keys are all in the same places.
The remote runs on AAA batteries, and feels pretty good to hold, but the lack of dedicated playback keys was a minor inconvenience. The D-Pad and navigation keys are all too close and sit flush with each other; this often meant that I’d hit the wrong button, particularly when watching TV in the dark.
The remote is Bluetooth-enabled and has a microphone for voice commands. It paired easily with the TV. Once this was done, I could use it for most functions without pointing it at the TV, and this also enabled the use of Google Assistant on the TV.
The Hisense 50-inch 4K HDR Android TV (50A71F) looks basic, yet entirely functional and to-the-point, keeping the viewer’s focus on the screen. There are narrow borders all around the screen with a slightly thicker bottom, and a small module protruding from just below the Hisense logo for the indicator light, power button, and IR receiver. Although the Hisense TV is slim at the edges, it gets considerably thicker at the middle and bottom, where the bottom-firing box speakers are.
The Hisense 50-inch 4K HDR Android TV (50A71F) has a 50-inch Ultra-HD (3840×2160-pixel) LED screen, At Rs. 29,990 which is equivalent to $369.29 United States Dollar, this isn’t the most affordable TV with Dolby Vision, but it’s definitely among the more affordable options available today that support the 12-bit HDR format. There’s also support for Dolby Atmos audio for the television’s 30W box speakers.

Although there are many big brands operating in the affordable television space, only a handful offer premium features such as 4K screens and HDR support for less than Rs. 30,000 which is equivalent to $369.29 United States Dollar. Many such models have not been available consistently over the past few months, so Hisense’s arrival in India is a good thing for buyers. The Hisense 50A71F is a decent television for the Rs. 30,000 asking price $369.29 United States Dollar, offering Dolby Vision HDR, acceptable picture and sound quality, and a reliable and unrestricted smart TV experience. If you have access to good streaming content, you’ll be happy with what this TV has to offer.
Colour performance with standard dynamic range content is less than ideal, there are motion issues visible across resolutions, and standard definition content simply does not look good on the Hisense 50-inch 4K HDR Android TV (50A71F), but these are issues we’ve seen on most televisions in this price segment with similar features and specifications. It’s far from the picture quality we’ve seen on more expensive options such as the OnePlus TV U series or TCL C715, but the Hisense 50A71F is considerably more affordable, and offers enough to justify that price.
