Xiaomi is a very striking brand for the prices they charge for most of their products, especially if we talk about the quality-price ratio. Since they announced their foray into the television market, we have been waiting to learn more about the models they have released. We have already reviewed a television that left us very satisfied in terms of features. Today we will talk about the Xiaomi TV P1E 55, an option that seems ideal for the current mid-range. However, we will see both the advantages and disadvantages that are offered.

Exterior design of the Xiaomi Smart TV P1 55

We have an interesting design that stands out for delivering a slimmer appearance than what is commonly seen

The televisions in this category do not stand out precisely for offering a great design, however, the Xiaomi Smart TV P1 55 gives us a striking appearance, especially for offering a finer style. In addition, we are talking about the 55-inch version, ideal for medium-sized rooms.

Here we recommend you purchase the VESA support that makes it easier for us to install, although it is best to position it directly on the wall, so we can enjoy its front that seems to us the most attractive , especially for its thin bezels that generate a more elegant and eye-catching environment.

We also point out that the chassis of the television is black, a color that combines quite well with any environment, so the integration will be more precise. The rear, unlike other models, has a better design , especially because it eliminates all the bulkier spaces.

So we get a slim TV that can fit almost anywhere, obviously it won’t have a minimalist look , however, it defends itself quite well. Possibly the least remarkable thing in this section is its construction, which seems to have somewhat weak materials.

Connectivity

We have a very acceptable connectivity that begins with three HDMI , which we use to connect external devices such as laptops, consoles and players. We also find three USB 2.0 that stand out for their content playback and recording function.

Other physical connections that we find very interesting are its Ethernet port , its composite video input , its audio output and its headphone jack . Likewise, we have the most updated and advanced tuners of the moment, for example, the DVB-T2 .

Wireless connectivity

We have a dual-band Wi-Fi Direct LED connection that ensures a correct internet connection, especially since we do not have to be near the modem to establish said connectivity. We also have Bluetooth 5.0 that is used to connect other external devices.

Image quality and functions in general of the Xiaomi TV P1E 55

We must accept that the image of the Xiaomi TV P1E 55 seems acceptable to us, since it has a good optimization that ensures a good display in almost any content. To begin with, we have a 4K resolution that seeks to give us more precise details .

This definition is accompanied by a Direct LED backlight that offers us both positive and negative points, which you should know. For example, it helps reduce the price of the television considerably , which is why this model has an excellent cost.

Another interesting detail is that we have uniform lighting, here we notice that the colors are more accurate. We should not worry too much about energy consumption, since this panel does not spend too much , therefore, your bill will not be very high for the television.

However, the disadvantages are also important and we noticed that Local Dimming is not included , therefore, its contrast and brightness levels are low , therefore, when we are in very dark or bright environments, we will notice a considerable loss of quality.

Enhancement technologies

We must bear in mind that this television does not include many enhancement functions, therefore, we must settle for what it offers, however, we have MEMC that automatically adds artificial frames to content with low speed for greater fluidity.

So we will receive adequate viewing in action movies or sports. Nor should we forget that HDR is available, a technology that focuses its improvements on contrast and the color palette, yes, its operation will only be noticed with content that is compatible.

Sound

Surely the least striking thing about this television is its audio quality, since we only have 20W that is transmitted through its two speakers. In addition, we are going to enjoy technologies such as Dolby Audio and DTS HD that seek to provide a more immersive and clean experience. However, for more demanding content it will not be enough. The only solution will be to purchase an external soundbar.

Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features

We have Android TV, an excellent system that has great features for your entertainment

Another attraction of the Xiaomi Smart TV P1 55 is that it has Android TV that offers us the most extensive catalog of applications that currently exists, since we can install more than 5,000 options, obviously the most popular will be available , yes, not all they are functional.

As if that were not enough, we can also download movies, music and games to enjoy on the TV. Likewise, we find compatibility with Google Assistant that allows us to carry out voice commands. With Chromecast built-in we can transmit from our Smartphone.
