Xiaomi Q1E TV Review: 55-inch 4K TV For S$1,500?!

If you’re looking for an affordable 4K TV, the Xiaomi Q1E is a pretty decent choice, but only if you can overlook some of its shortcomings. For S$1,499, it’s a pretty decent option that comes with HDR10+, Dolby Vision, a QLED screen and more.

So let’s talk about the design first. This model only comes in a 55-inch option, which is definitely a little limiting. It would have been nice to see a 65-inch option as well for people with larger spaces. That being said, the TV itself is very sleek, with very thin bezels that don’t distract from the content. There’s also a stand included in the box which is nice, and set-up was relatively easy.

It’s still a Quantum Dot QLED display though, which means you don’t get the blacks that an OLED display would provide. That being said, Xiaomi says the display covers 97% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut, and the display also supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, which definitely did make for a very enjoyable experience when I was watching shows with more shadows like The Witcher and such.
