Build and finishing is very good, color reproduction and viewing angles are also pretty good. This Vu Android 4K UHD TV is not that slim when compared with the Xiaomi Mi TV 4. Also the UI is a lot different, it is app based meaning to watch YouTube, HotStar, Netflix for example you need to run their respective apps.
Inside the box you will get the TV, user manual, warranty card, two remotes, AV cable, 4x AAA batteries, wall mount kit and stands. You can either use stand or mount the TV on the wall using the wall kit.
There are two remotes, you can either use the traditional remote the one you usually get with most TV’s or you can use the smart Bluetooth remote that looks somewhat like the Mi remote.

Overall performance was pretty impressive. The UI is not as smooth as seen on the Mi TV 4, however it is good enough better than most smart TV’s out there. Voice search works across apps and is the key attraction.
You can install games, but you need a gamepad for better experience. Sound quality is pretty good, and really loud.
