Todd W., Nov 26, 2018 : Dear friends, How are you enjoying the new OnePlus 6T? Thank you for joining us and posting in last two threads!! We have been busy with user activities and field work in past weeks with the OnePlus 6T launch. At the same time, we’ve been moving along on the development of the TV project. Our product and R&D teams have been pouring over your posts and suggestions. We don't have any official features or release plans to announce yet to the public, but you’ll be the first to know when we do. Many of you mentioned how your so-called “Smart” TV turned out “Stupid “after buying from store. Sorry if you had that experience too. That’s why this time, we’d like to discuss Smart TVs to help everyone identify and discover truly intelligent televisions. Walking into an appliance store (either online or offline), you will find that many bill themselves as “Smart TVs”, with some variations in wording. To elaborate (and please correct me if I’m wrong): Samsung and LG, who have sold the most units of Smart TV globally, have been working on their own TV OS for quite a while, which are called “Tizen” and “WebOS.” Sony and many other brands are using Android TV as their OS. With an official Android TV, you can enjoy all your favorite Android apps and Google services on a bigger screen. You can also do more with built-in Chromecast and Google assistant. But be careful with “Android-based TVs.” They come with an Android system but don’t necessarily support Google services (also known as GMS), and may lack standard apps like YouTube, Chrome, and the Play store. Their prices are usually lower than official Android TVs, which often correlate with lower performance as well. Amazon has found some success with Fire Stick and their TV OS called “Fire TV.” There’s also “Roku TV” which focuses on the content and streaming experience. An Internet-capable TV might be not the “Smart” TV that you are looking for. Manufacturers who made those TVs in earlier years are running a basic OS with additional internet functions. These may be marked as “Smart” but allow you to hardly to do anything smart with it. How has your experience been with the OS of Smart TVs? Do you have any other OS to recommend? Just let us know and be kind to others if they make any errors in their posts. Cheers!
