The Toshiba 65U970 arrived inwards a HUGE rectangular box. Be prepared, it isn’t that slow to open. You also bring to live really careful inwards unboxing it. I personally advise to utilisation a cutter to peel the box rather than pulling the TV out the box.

The Toshiba 65U970 is good constructed too feels quite enterprise too premium overall. It has metallic frames, all drinking glass front, too sturdy plastic behind. My solely trouble is its stand. It isn’t that stable. They should bring made it to a greater extent than stable.

When it comes to design, the Toshiba 65U970 is a really slim type of TV. It also sports a minimalist aspect w/ tiny top, bottom, too side bezels. The enshroud is close bezel-less for that to a greater extent than immersive viewing experience. It tin easily jibe most room pattern types every bit well.

Audio Quality

Speaker good character from the Toshiba 65U970 is unexpectedly squeamish too immersive for the price. It has the mightiness to render rich tones w/ really deep too tight bass response. Crawling type of sub-bass is nowadays fifty-fifty if there’s no get upward of a sub-woofer inside.

Audio is a fundamental highlight of this TV. It’s unexpectedly loud too clear plenty to stand upward on its own!


Vocals are also quite clean, though the bass could live overpowering at times. It tin also larn really very loud. But, it has distortion if you lot crank the mass over at 50 percent.

Performance

Android gaming is possible!


Picture character of this TV is great. It has 65 inch 4K UHD IPS 3840 x 2160 pixels that’s sudden too immersive. Toshiba fifty-fifty paired it w/ CEVO 4K engine, broad color gamut, AMR+ 400, MPEG dissonance reduction, too auto stance to heighten the overall viewing experience.

Picture character is some life like!


For us, colors are good saturated too punchy. Blacks are also really deep every bit expected. It’s non the best inwards the world, but for the price, it tin decently compete w/ some higher-end TVs inwards terms of painting character for us.

However, it isn’t the brightest around. It is brilliant enough, but sunlight legibility is far from the best. We would demand to closed the windows inwards our room to preclude sunlight from entering our room too bask its neat painting quality.

Opening apps similar Facebook too YouTube is seamless!


Inside, it is powered past times an unknown 64 fleck quad marrow processor. Interestingly, it is coupled w/ Republic of Mali T860 graphics that’s normally constitute on octa marrow MediaTek chips. It’s also has ii GB RAM for your casual Android multitasking.

The processor that Toshiba used is expert plenty to run most of the basic too some of the heavy Android apps too functions. Facebook, other social media apps, too YouTube plant perfectly fine. Playing your favorite music too high resolution movies on via USB flash drives are effortless every bit well.

In our gaming tests, nosotros were able to run Fight Night Round three using a PSP emulator at thirty frames per second. Asphalt 8 has slight lag on all high settings. NBA 2K17 is solely playable on ultra depression settings. But, sometimes, NBA even then crashes.

It also has single too multi thespian modes to play online too offline games with the utilisation of a specific controller.

Software-wise, the TV boots w/ Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out of the box. It has a ready clean too slow to utilisation interface that tin live easily controlled using the regular TV remote too the Android remote.

The Android remote it is using is a exceptional one. It understands upward to 88 dissimilar languages inwards a force of a button. Just tell what you lot desire to opened upward apps, search the web, too access commands.

It works, but it could live inaccurate at times. You may demand to repeat your vocalization commands at times.

Apple iOS devices tin live connected to Android TV w/ the utilisation of a downloadable app. Unfortunately, nosotros weren’t able to exam it every bit nosotros don’t bring an iPhone every bit of this writing.

It has built-in Chromecast every bit good to stream media from your laptops too other mobile devices.

Lastly, WiFi connectivity is quite stable. Bluetooth also plant well. 

Pros – Great painting quality, good character is amazing upward to 50 portion loudness, Android interface is slow to use, vocalization command is cool, stable WiFi connectivity, 3x HDMI ports, 2x USB ports, expert price
Cons – Brightness isn’t the strongest around, stand upward isn’t that stable, lags when many apps are opened

Verdict

Priced at PHP 88,885, the Toshiba 65U970 is i of the to a greater extent than affordable 65 Inch 4K UHD Android Smart TV inwards the marketplace correct now. Picture character ranks with the best inwards the province for the price, good is impressive too immersive, too nosotros similar that most Android apps plant w/ it.

Yes, it has few glaring weaknesses, but again, you lot bring to regard its affordable cry for cost for the painting too features.
