The Huawei Vision S TV is an excellent pick for casual viewers and movie enthusiasts thanks to great sound and dark blacks, but pro-gamers will likely shun it due to its lack of VRR and missing HDMI 2.1 ports.

Product Snapshot

Overview

Released in 2020, the Huawei Vision S TV is a high-end 4K UHD display that seamlessly upscales sub-4K content and runs on Huawei’s easy-to-navigate Harmony OS interface.

Its 13MP camera allows for MeeTime Video calls with loved ones and fantastic 1920 x 1080 wide-angle pictures at home.

The TV’s mirror control feature also allows users to control the TV through their Huawei phones, and with a 120 Hz high refresh rate screen, motion remains smooth and fluid for accurate depictions of fast action scenes.

In addition, the TV’s flicker-free technology and low blue light screen help protect sensitive eyes, and with the deep black levels that the TV produces, movie buffs will enjoy watching movies in a dark setting.

Stick around for the rest of this Huawei Vision S review, and see how it compares to some of the best rated TVs around.

Consensus

our Verdict

Expert testers felt strongly that the Huawei Vision S TV would impress movie watchers and casual viewers. However, its missing HDMI 2.1 ports and lack of Variable Refresh Rate support will likely dissuade pro gamers.

The TV’s poor peak brightness failed to impress reviewers who would like HDR content in full color and vivid brightness, but it’s above-par sound, 120 Hz panel, and dark blacks still make it an excellent pick for casual viewing.
