There are far too many TV brands in the market — especially in the sub Rs 40,000 price range. A brand that has been rather active in the space is Thomson. The French TV brand recently launched its 55-inch Thomson OathPro 0101 4K Android TV. Priced at Rs 32,999, this Thomson model sports a 60Hz Ultra HD (4K) display with 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution, runs Android 9 with inbuilt Google Assistant and Chromecast and supports the popular video streaming apps. Here’s our review of the product.


Thomson 55 OathPro 0101 Android TV: Design and display

The Thomson OathPro 0101 comes in a flat panel which is about 2cm thick on the top and the sides and then bulges out from the back a little.

The TV comes with two small metal stands that can be affixed towards the bottom with the help of screws. Wall mounts also come with the TV. The smart TV comes with inbuilt Wi-Fi with Google Assistant and Chromecast support. There are 2 HDMI and 2 USB port slots at the back. The 55-inch TV is not too heavy to lift and can be lifted easily by two people.

The 55-inch OathPro comes with a 10-bit Ultra HD (4K) display of 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution with HDR10 support. The display has a brightness of 550 nits and a contrast ratio of 500000:1 (Dynamic). It comes with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Some of the other video features of the TV apart from 4K HDR 10 are Dolby Vision, MEMC 60Hz, Stream 4K etc.

The display colours don’t come out well at resolutions lower than 4K. The panel brightness is optimum for indoor environments.

Thomson 55 OathPro 0101 Android TV: Performance

The smart LED TV comes powered by a CA53 quad-core processor and Mali-450 graphics processor. It has a RAM capacity of 1.75 GB and storage memory of 8 GB.

Through the Menu button on remote, you can tinker with three settings: Picture Mode, Sound Mode and Source.

The colours are an issue, especially when it comes to switching the picture modes. The picture modes are Standard, Vivid, Movie, Sports, Game and User. The Vivid mode is supposed to infuse a little more brightness and freshness in the screen colours but all it does is quite the opposite by dampening the colours, which was certainly what we did not expect. On this TV, the Standard video mode looks better than the Vivid mode. Movie mode darkens the screen a little but the effect may or may not be liked by the consumers.

The sound modes are Standard, Music, Sports, Movie. The Music mode increases the mids a little, thus making for a slightly richer sound output than from the Standard mode.

Some of the video streaming apps take 5-10 minutes to start when the TV is switched on. This occurs especially if after playing the media on a certain streaming service, you immediately switch off the TV without going to

The TV comes with 30W bottom-firing speakers. The audio performance of the TV depends on the bitrate of the audio being played. With high-bit rate files, the audio output didn’t distort at high volume (beyond 60%), while with others it did. The volume can surely be upped with audio streaming services and there would not be an issue with the loudness but the sound may or may not distort at high volumes depending upon the audio quality of the music files.

With the video content on some streaming services (audio and video both) the audio of the TV got pretty loud for a big-sized room at around 40-50% only, while with some other services, the volume had to be jacked up to 70% and beyond for it to get loud enough. In a nutshell, this TV is good for watching films and TV shows, the volume depending upon the streaming service. Or, you can use a movie file from an external hard drive. If you have got to play some music, we would advise using a soundbar for a good listening experience.

Google Assistant works very well when you are standing or sitting close to the TV but not that promptly when you are far away from it, like when you are more than 3 metres away from it. This is a 55-inch TV and most of the users would prefer to set it up more than 3 metres away from the couch to take in the entire screen properly. So, if you are going to use a lot of voice commands, be ready to get up from the couch and kind of wake the audio receptors of the TV from up close.

Device casting works quite well and you may use your phone or laptop to play content. In the case of connecting a laptop via Chromecast, the cursor response can be 1-2 seconds late. If you want to try gaming this way on the TV screen, it may not work that fluidly. It would be better to use an HDMI cable for that purpose.

Verdict


If you are looking for a low-priced Android 4K TV, the Thomson 55 OathPro could be a good choice. It delivered operation-wise almost every time. The UI, the Wi-Fi and Chromecast connection, the available apps; everything worked well connection and navigation-wise most of the time.

The display colours aren’t very crisp and can be an issue if not playing 4K content. The audio can also disappoint should you choose to play an audio track without attaching any external soundbar or speakers to the TV. Giving voice command can be a pain if the range is beyond 3 metres. As the final word, the Thomson Oath Pro 0101 Android TV will just get the job done if you can make peace with its drawbacks.
