The TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED is a 4k TV with Mini LED backlighting. It's part of the 6 Series lineup that includes the TCL 6 Series/R635 2020 QLED, with one of the differences being that the R646 has Google TV while the R635 uses Roku TV. While the TV is an overall improvement from the R635 thanks in part to its better local dimming feature, it's still not as good as other flagship 4k TVs. The Google TV interface is user-friendly, but we've read reports of issues with apps crashing. The TV has a built-in mic that you can use with Google Assistant, but you also have the option to disable the mic if you're worried about privacy. TCL also includes current-gen gaming features like variable refresh rate (VRR) support and two HDMI 2.1 inputs, meaning you can take full advantage of the Xbox Series X and PS5's capabilities.
