Hisense 50H8C Review

Hisense 50H8C Review: The Hisense 50H8C comes under price range $500 50-inch 4K television that offers excellent color accuracy, however, is held back by a sluggish interface. Hisense’s 50-inch 50H8C joins the rapidly growing ranks of budget-priced ultra high definition (UHD, or 4K) televisions. It’s very reasonably priced at $499.99 and gives accurate colors and a pretty useful set of related options. However, Hisense’s Android-based good TV interface lacks the variety and ease of use you get with Roku TV and the sheer breadth of choices available with excellent Android TV.

Hisense 50H8C Design

The 50H8C is framed by a half-inch flat, shining black plastic bezel on the sides and top, with a wider, silver-colored bezel on the bottom edge. The logo appears in the bottom center of TV, and a small protrusion on the lower left holds the remote sensor.Two HDMI ports, three USB ports, an antenna/cable connector, a 3.5mm headphone output, and a 3.5mm port marked for use service face left on the back of the television. The remaining two HDMI ports, plus combination component/composite an optical audio output, video inputs, and an Ethernet port, face directly back.

The included remote is a very plain, button-laden 8-inch black wand. The center holds the prominent navigation pad, with a number pad above it and volume, channel, and playback controls below.

Hisense 50H8C Smart TV

Whereas other budget HDTV manufacturers use Roku TV for their connected television platform, Hisense went with a closely skinned version of Android using the Opera TV Store for the 50H8C. It’s a disappointing selection with a sluggish interface in comparison with Roku TVs like TCL’s UP130 series, or full-on Android TVs like Sony’s XBR-X930D series.

Hisense 50H8C Performance

The 50HC usually feels sluggish when navigating its various menus, with choppiness whenever you want to scroll past no matter is on the screen. Even going into the Input menu can take a few seconds. As compared Mostly budget televisions, you won’t get a  very good contrast out of the 50H8C.

Hisense 50H8C Input Lag and Power Consumption

Input lag is the time it uses the screen to display a signal after it’s sent, which is of particular interest to gamers. The 50H8C showed an input lag of 66.2 milliseconds in The ater mode. That lag drops to 48.7 milliseconds in Game mode, which also comes with the trade-off of skewing color accuracy.  A Vitality Saving image mode slightly dims the image and reduces that number to 70 watts. That is right according to the TCL 50UP130, which uses 107 watts in Cinema mode and 87 watts in Low Power mode.

Hisense 50H8C Features

The Brand Offering the Native 4K UHD resolution of 3840*2160  and additional four years manufacture warranty after a register.
