TCL C935 Review: Gets the job done!

TCL has long been a valuable firm for those looking for televisions of acceptable quality without exceeding the price, however, they also have a somewhat extensive catalog in the high range, so we have more to choose from according to our demands. Today we will talk about the TCL 65C935 that came out for this year and is considered among the most powerful of this firm. The reality is that it does have a good number of features that greatly improve the experience.

Exterior design of the TCL C935 QLED Mini LED

48 techweek

We see an elegant design that integrates easily into any environment giving a striking impression

The TCL 65C935 QLED Mini LED presents an interesting aesthetic that improves certain aspects of previous models, so we will see a better worked appearance. It seems to us a modern design that with a good placement offers a better presence in the physical section .

The first thing to consider is its 65-inch size that has dimensions of 885 x 1446 x 58 mm , making it a suitable television for large rooms or halls. We recommend the VESA support for a better installation, yes, by including it the depth will increase.

We believe that the best position is achieved directly on the wall, since we will see the front completely,  a space that seems quite striking , especially due to the inclusion of a thin frame that generates elegance and allows better integration into any environment.

It also allows for more usable space,  which benefits content playback . The rear part does not change the good design achieved because it does not have a bulky space and maintains a slim appearance that blends quite well with any decoration.


It offers four  HDMI 2.1 inputs  perfect for transmitting the signal from compatible devices such as consoles, computers, laptops and even players, although there will be some other options to connect. Here the interesting thing is the version that improves the performance of the signal.

We have two  USB 2.0 ports that offer the ability to play photos, videos and music directly to the TV from compatible drives. However, the really attractive thing turns out to be the recording of content that can become a function that we use frequently.

There will be other interesting connections that enhance the experience on the subject of physical connectivity. Here we have a  satellite input , an  optical audio output  ,  a  side AV  and a  headphone  jack  . It offers more options which you can check in the specification table.

Regarding the TV tuners, it integrates  DVB-T2/C/S2  that do a good tracking to receive terrestrial, satellite and cable channels. The wireless section stands out for the options it allows to use, which improve the experience by providing facilities. We have  Wi-Fi ,  Bluetooth  and  DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general of the TCL 65C935

The TCL 65C935 offers an image that we define as powerful due to the details it includes, to begin with, we have a 4K resolution that stands out for providing greater power than Full HD, generating more precise scenes that seek to show realism regardless of the content.

This is achieved in part thanks to the Mini LED OD5 backlight that promises to deliver up to 2,000 nits of brightness that will allow high quality in very dark or bright environments. As if that were not enough, TCL has modified the surface of the LEDs in search of reducing the halo effect .

Add to this the benefits of the VA panel that delivers better levels of contrast and brightness, to show blacks and whites with greater purity. There are disadvantages, however, they are minimized thanks to the backlight, therefore, we enjoy high quality images .

Likewise, there will be enhancement technologies that work on parameters such as color contrast, brightness and saturation so that the scenes are even deeper and we see vivid and intense content. We found several functions, but it would be a bit tedious to mention how they work.

We think it is important to mention that it has compatibility with HDR10 + , Dolby Vision , HLG , Dolby Vision IQ and PQ10 . Another important detail is that it has a maximum frequency of 144 Hz , which allows movements to be fluid and precise at all times.


We receive a power of 60W  through two speakers and a subwoofer, improving the audio experience compared to other models that are in its price range. Everything improves because this sound system belongs to the ONKYO firm .

Firm specialized in audio issues, in addition, it works with  Dolby Atmos ,  Dolby TrueHD  and  DTS technologies , which greatly improve the experience, resulting in surround and precise sound. The quality seems to us sufficient to clearly hear any content.

Thanks to the fact that it works with Android TV, we can take full advantage of the functions that it includes

The TCL 65C935 QLED Mini LED  is a complete system with several features that enhance the user experience. We are talking about Android that comes in its most recent version. Here we have the  Play Store  that gives us the option to download and install more than 7,000 applications.

Obviously those very popular options will be available, in addition, we can download different alternatives such as games, movies and music. It works with  Google Assistant  and  Alexa , assistants that allow you to control certain functions of the TV by voice.

Another attraction is the inclusion of  Apple AirPlay 2  that is used to transmit music, photos and videos from an iPhone, iPad or Mac. All with adequate performance. Finally, mention that this TV is an interesting option to play with  AMD FreeSync Premium Pro .
