The 50A7200G is a 50 inch 4K TV from Hisense. It was launched in 2021. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel.
The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.
Now, the next important spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.
Hisense has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. Now, since the TV features a 50 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can produce.
A panel with poor color reproduction will produce washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ?
There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.
Static contrast specification defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with SC ratio less than 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:
Apart from that, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will rob your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
There's no mention of this spec in the TV's official specsheet. Once again we have to make an assumption. The static contrast ratio of this TV would be surely atleast 3000:1. the static contrast ratios of VA panels range between 3000:1 - 8000:1.
HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.
Now if you are planning to use the TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time impacts the performance.
Unfortunately, Hisense did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which your device inputs changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 50 inches vertically and 44.37 inches horizontally. In terms of thickness, it is just 3.39 inches thick. Overall the TV weighs around 9.3 kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 9.0 Kilograms.
Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 200 x 200 mm is provided for wall-mounting. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.
