Design


The build of the Xiaomi Mi LED TV 4X Pro, is not that slim as the other 55-inch offering from Xiaomi and that’s ok for the price you get a good panel. It has a plastic shell, something which we have noticed on a large number of budget TVs. The borders of the TV surround the display and look like they are brushed aluminum, but they are not. These are plastic borders. Nonetheless, they give this TV a premium feel. You can either choose to wall mount the TV or put it on a tabletop. You may put the TV on a tabletop and the two feet that come in the box are also plastic but will hold the TV firmly in place.

One thing to note about the TV is that when it is placed on a tabletop, there are approximately 3.5-inches of space between the TV and the table. When you place any kind of channel provider box below the TV, it will just fit and won't hinder your viewing experience.

Overall, the build of the TV is hefty. It is not as premium as you must have seen on the Mi TV 4.

Features


Mi TV 4X 55 is a smart TV. This TV supports the HDMI-CEC, and just like other Android TV models, has built-in Chromecast functionality for screencasting from compatible devices. The sales package contains the tv itself, the bottom stands, some manuals, and therefore the remote. Just like the remainders of the Mi TV 4X series, the Mi TV 4X 55 is available with the Mi Bluetooth Remote, which allows users to directly access Google Assistant. We've already spoken about our issues with this remote, including the shortage of useful buttons, poor responsiveness, and therefore the incontrovertible fact that batteries for it aren't even included within the sales package.

As the remainder of the Mi TV 4X range, this 55-inch variant runs on Android TV 9 Pie with PatchWall UI 2.0 on top as an optional launcher. you are even given the choice to use the stock Android TV launcher, with both having their pros and cons. Patch Wall puts the curated content within easy reach, Android TV is cleaner and easier to navigate. Unfortunately, though, Xiaomi still doesn't have a ‘standby' mode for when the TV isn't in use; turning it on will take a moment approximately whenever.

While the Mi TV 4X 55 is no doubt a large-screen television. If you've got an enormous enough room, you'll appreciate the dimensions and be ready to make the foremost of the sharpness and hues of excellent 4K HDR content. The sound quality on the Mi TV 4X 55 is analogous to the 50-inch option, with an equivalent 20W of sound output. While this can be adequate for a little television, we felt that it didn't quite match up to the visual experience.

Final Opinion


The Mi TV 4X Pro is having a simple, and slightly lower down design. But whatever you lose in the build quality, the TV covers up with a smooth UI, good picture quality, and a functional easy to use remote control system. Else it falls short with its audio performance along with the lack of native support for Netflix and Prime Videos. Allover, for a budget of 40k the TV is ensuring a value for money proposition.

It will run on Android TV out of the box which is appreciated, has a great panel and the overall performance is good. However, we missed and wished that the performance of the audio output of the TV was better and the TV would have supported Netflix and Prime Videos out of the box. If you are budget bound for about 40k, you can surely go for this one. Although, the Mi TV is renowned for its unique UI, good picture performance, and simple remote control.
