    Very basic UHD display, with below average features:
    Pros:
    1) Picture quality is definitely sharper than a Full HD TV
    2) 2D to 3D conversion works OK
    3) Blooming issue exists, but can be brought down by bringing backlight level to at least 60 from 100
    4) MEMC feature improves motion fluidity
    5) USB 3.0

    Cons:
    1) Limited picture control setting. No separate contrast setting, No colour setting (Only modes are Vivid, Mild and Normal, Changing MEMC level, Backlight etc puts it on User mode instead)
    2) No auto upscaling. Mobile mirroring generates a very low-res screen.
    3) Gesture Control is as good as not being there.
    4) Android 4.2 based OS. Limited Apps
    5) Camera is 1 MP only.
    6) No HDMI 2.0. Maybe the 2 HDMI ports provided are HDMI 1.3 (not even 1.4)!! Chances are that when UHD COntent comes in, this TV will not be able to consume UHD content by HDMI.
    7) OS extremely clunky and not user friendly.
    8) Only 1.02 Billion coulours. Maybe a 10-Bit processor, instead if 14-Bit.
    9) No Online user manual, support or FAQ on website for Videocon’s 4K TVs

    Verdict:
    If you want a budget 4K, go for Vu. My advice is to save up more money and go for LG, Samsung or Sony, to be future proof.
