Let me tell you, LG B9 and Green Tint do not appear in the same content on other TVs like Sony W950D, Samsung. Its color also looked slightly different.
But this color is not bad. It seems to have some bad color which Mi company Xiaomi can fix by updating it. It takes viewing of HDR 10 content on platforms such as YouTube and other applications. And it had a good demo on Movie Trailer and YouTube on a separate demo HDR Video which gave you good performance on this TV.

With one click on the remote control, you can use Android TV UI and patchwall depending on your choice. Explain that the purpose of this patchwall is to insert content before service.
However, if you see content on the home page, we can jump directly into the content without having to navigate to the particular streaming app until you log in to the streaming service. This patchwall also helps us search for content with lists such as “India Top 10 Today”, “Top 20 in 2020”, “Recntly.
Collections “and more. However, this is Mi TV’s The UI is great if you are subscribed to multiple services and just want to consume a lot of content without having to worry about navigating applications. I only have one problem with the UI.
When I watch TV shows or movies Pause for some time and go to picture settings to change it, and then when I click back instead of exiting the settings and going back in the move, the UI lets us transfer out of the move. Looks a little better than the features. Since this UI feature does not do this in other TVs.

Patchwall also keeps getting a version 3.5 update on Mi Q1 TV 4K. The key feature of this patchwall is always its content duration and recommendation system, which now sees some useful improvements and deeper integration with services like Disney + Hotstar and others.
This curated move and show collection are slightly more sensibly inserted than before. It has so far liked the simplicity of the Android TV UI. It has taken a while, but I now believe that this patchwall is competitive and very reliable.
