​Apple TV 4K (32GB) Review: Stunning Picture Quality

Posted on 13 October 2017 Tags: Apple, Feature, Home Entertainment Gadgets

Apple always comes with gadgets that are revolutionary and have a premium feel. With Amazon TV and Roku dominating the market for 4k/HDR stream boxes, Apple has released its own streaming device that can finally play movies and TV shows in 4k and HDR.

Features

Apple hasn’t really deviated from its original TV design, the new 4K TV looks similar to its predecessor, however, there are slight differences. This model is designed and raised up a bit to expose the air vents, which is what essentially keeps the Apple TV processor cool. It doesn’t come with a USB C port, but instead, Apple chose to go for an HDMI port, an upgraded gigabyte Ethernet jack, and a power outlet. The remote remains similar as well with Siri voice controls, volume controls, play/pause and same motion control capabilities. The only new addition to remote is a ring around menu button, which glows in the dark.

Powered by A10X fusion chips, it makes Apple 4k TV a lot faster and more capable of running huge files. It runs on Apple TV OS, which is far better than what others are offering. The interference is nice and user-friendly however, Apple could have done much better. It comes with 32Gb and 64gb of storage.

Apple now plays movies on HDR and 4k, which offers four times more pixel than 1080p. You can easily see very fine details in movies and TV shows. It supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. Things we loved in Apple 4k TV (32GB) are of course the quality. The colors are much richer now with the good level of depth and clarity. You can point out even the smallest details like hair strands of actors. However, what we didn’t like about Apple 4k content is that it can only be streamed, you can’t download any show or movie and for that.

Verdict

Is it worth updating to Apple 4k (32GB)? Yes because if you have files downloaded in HD quality, the TV will convert the content to 4K, absolutely free. The processor is powerful to handle large video files, the presentation is smooth and the colors are vibrant. For us, it is must-have upgrade.
