A good mid-range television. This is how we can introduce the TCL 50P615 (AP).
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 49.5 inches.
In spite of this size, the rendering and the picture result are good, without a doubt by means of the technology used .
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  This television is part of the main group of current TVs. It doesn’t completely stands out among its competitors with this choice of Ultra HD 4K.

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.

The sound of the TCL 50P615 (AP)

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
