It is an Android TV OS based FHD TV, so no Chrome browser by default. But you can side load browsers like Firefox. Or you can try alternative browser like Puffin TV Browser from the TCL TV's Google Play Store.

Well, my Sony Android (8.0) TV comes with a browser built in, so no need to sideload any other browser.

Pretty sure it is the same for other Android TVs.

My Mi Box S does not come with a browser. But okay it is a low end Android TV box running official Android TV OS.

But then Mi TV Global version running Android TV OS does not ship with a browser either.

Sony Android TV is much more expensive than Mi TV and TCL TV though.

Agree, perhaps I should check on my Mi Box S tonight to confirm.

I hardly browse on my TV unless my tablets and phones are charging at the same time.

Same tv as local.. all specs same..just os is Chinese version without Google play store, probably getting a Android box later. Price is definitely alot cheaper... Only worry is no warranty but parts and repair still accessible as I know local repair man who can do Sony.

Just a thought only.
Is it not possible to set location to Singapore? Download Singapore firmware and reload the firmware?

With the Chromecast or Mi Box S, then no point messing with Google gapps on the China version of Sony TV.

It is said that Sony cuts too many things and it is very difficult to flash US/UK/etc ROM.

Mi Box S is not expensive at around S$80, with official local warranty, from Shopee Official Xiaomi store.

Thanks! Was thinking either the TCL, or Sony 8500 (or above) from Taobao/Msia as the price is at least 40% cheaper. But unless the Sony give much superior quality.. maybe the TCL is the best cheap bet to go without the hassle of warranty and a Mi Box.

Can...

I go down IMM to see those tcl 65 sets.. not too impressed.

The Sony got better graphic upscale, more natural color and motion,only the sound is still lacking and the black is not deep black.

It's a Sony, that's what they say...
