So today in the accompaniment of my sister, we went to buy a TCL T.V. from my favorite dealer in Luthuli. Kufika, as we were looking at the TCL tv’s bargaining the price for the size we had settled for (40") TCL smart, something else on the display caught my attention; a Synix TV.
Well, I noticed the TV had crisp images. Looked brighter than TCL, LG, and Samsungs that were there. So I asked him about it and he told me that it has an IPS panel. Then surprise surprise. Akaniambia the company is a subsidiary of Tecno/Infinix/iTel maker, Transsion Holdings.
Well, he did a small demonstration to show the quality and rigidity of the panel. Akagonga the panel ya Synix na kidole somehow brutal but a bit gentle and there was totally no screen flickering. Wacha agonge TCL/Hisense and even my lovely Samsung (he told me hiyo ni ya Egypt), the flickering was disturbing.
He sold us a 43" Hynix T.V @32,000. Kufika home turned on the T.V. There is a new Android version I’m supposed to update. Nikasunda Antenna and searched channels. All channels intact bila decoder. Picture quality comparable to the Samsung at home.
I was hungry packed the T.V back kwa box nikaenda kusaka late lunch. Then I remembered, there’s Techweez forums, I should share with the wonderful people here. So tomorrow, I will do a re-unboxing and share a hands-on experience.
TV inafaaa inende ushago, I feel like swapping it na the Samsung iko hapa
Tied like a gunia juu hakuna juala skuizi
Turned on the TV
Scrolling over the menu - Looks beautiful

Leo nimeekea bets hapa na zimekunyua maji zote
Here is where it gets interesting - The EPG resembles GOTV. Even channels ni vile ziko tu GOTV
It’s a great tv for the price. But it failed on the fullHD picture quality test. Tried to compare it with a Samsung N5100. Not bad but better than TCL from my point of view
As for the Android version it’s indicated as version 4.4.4 - When I first connected the TV to the internet yesterday, it did show an update as available. However, leo sijaona ikionesha kama update iko
The sound quality from the speakers is good
