Hisense H6

Hisense has been rolling out plenty of devices as of late, including large screen TVs, and the latest to go on sale is the H6 model Smart TV. Powered by Android 4.2.2, the Hisense H6 Smart TV offers a 55-inch 1080p (and 120Hz) screen along with all of the high-end functionality you'd want in terms of apps. You have access to Google Play interestingly enough, with all entertainment apps ready to load up and watch on the big screen. The TV is sporting Wifi, Bluetooth, ethernet, numerous HDMI inputs and even HDMI output to work as a passthrough device.

This is a step below the H7 or "Vidaa" Smart TVs, but still nothing to shake a stick at. The Hisense H6 Smart TV is available from Walmart (among other retailers) just under $700 — that's a pretty great price for the feature set here.

Until it breaks and it will. Better be safe and buy Walmart's protection plan because if you buy a Hisesnse TV you are going to need it.

Is the frame plastic or aluminum?
@ $700.00 it better be pushing the Snapdragon 805 and Adreno 420... and not CHOKED DOWN like that new LG that coming out... or that would = A Fail !
I mean.. this thing cost as much as a Prime !

I imagine just fine. I have a cheap off-brand tv I bought for $500 like 4 years ago and it still looks pretty fantastic, and I'm quite a picky videophile when it comes to image quality. Every time I'm tempted to buy a fancy new high end tv I realize that other than a prettier looking physical tv set, I won't be upgrading much. Now the $5000 4K Samsung/LG/Sony tvs are obviously in a league of their own but I'm not comparing this to those >.>

Yeah I have two 39 inch Emerson tv's I got at wal~mart for 298. Had one over a year and the other almost 3 years. The first was tinted a bit green and exchanged. They were an awesome buy!

Honestly? You'd be amazed. First time I ever even heard of Hisense was when I laid eyes on one at Wal-Mart. I was astounded. Don't always be sold on name brand man. Price doesn't equal performance. Just ask a Beats headphone owner.

I looked on Hisense's website, and I can't find how much built in memory there is. Does anyone know that, or the processor used? Thanks.

Seems hard to believe a $700 55" TV could have enough processing power to make for a worthwhile experience on Android, considering that's cheap for the size to begin with.

If it doesn't have a microSD card slot then I'll have to pass

edited to say - just figuring out that must be your signature lol

If anyone gets one of these let us know how gaming is on it. I'm afraid it may lag to much to play Xbox like my LG LED 240 TV still using my DLP projector and plasma till I get brave enough to try again

That's pretty cool. Now to convince the wife that we need this lol.

Looking very hard at this! Was planning on getting a new TV this weekend anyway and I click on AC and see this.... It must be a sign!!!

With no specs on the Android part, it's a little hard to think it's much good at that price point.

I compared Hisense with several other sets when TV shopping last year and they had terrible contrast and viewing angles. Don't let android sell you on a TV that doesn't look good to watch.

HiSense continues its dedication to Google as an operating system with a slew of new hardware powered by Android 4.2.2 that features Google services for TV (the product formerly known as Google TV). The first is its new line of H6 Smart TVs powered by Marvell's latest ARMADA 1500 PLUS HD Media processor, an upgraded over last year's chip that powered many of the first ARM Google TV devices. Available in 40-inch, 50-inch and 55-inch sizes, the televisions come equipped with the company's Social TV and Cloud Services app, a 120Hz refresh rate, Energy Star 6.0 qualifications, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM. The remote has 30 keys, a built-in air mouse with IQQI Smart Input and voice search functionality. For those who already have a TV but want the same services, HiSense also revealed the Pulse PRO set-top box, which has many of the same features as the H6 but, like the first generation Pulse, can be hooked up to any television set. Other features of the Pulse PRO include Netflix, Vudu HD movies, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, Google Play, HDMI, IR, DLNA, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB and Ethernet. We're not sure of pricing and availability just yet, and there are no pictures of the new hardware either.

I bought the seiki 39" UHD TV $400 and an Amlogic S802 Android 16 GB UHD TV box $100 pretty happy with the screen, but the Android TV blacks out, still I was able to test the idea, got USB stick to play 4K, it says it's Android 4.4.2, but I have seen reference to Ubuntu. You cannot find normal Android home screen, with back, home, multitasking buttons, you cannot pin your Google play movies, I'm asking for a refund, it's a Mali 450, 2 GB DDR 3 RAM, the Ethernet cable pumps the internet to it, also running Nexus 5 FHD 32 GB, Nexus 10 QHD 16 GB, sure beats the MS desktop crap. They're getting bigger, more integrated and cheaper, but dual core sounds a tad underpowered, my $50 single core 1080p, year old Android TV, used to run fine, wish they wouldn't mess, with the vanilla stock Android. If they give me a refund, maybe I will buy a 4K upscaling Blue Ray player, I have a 4K fireplace Blue Ray coming soon, I'd love to see a UHD Android TV at Google I/O, or Chromecast 2 UHD, we're getting there, in fits and starts, but we're getting there.
