There is no miniOLED, but miniLED is better than OLED in that you get a brighter TV and zero risk of burn-in. OLED still has many advantages over miniLED, and is the more premium technology but at a greater cost.

Just keep in mind that the R635 is the 2020 model and the R646 is the 2021 model. The R646 is supposed to be a bit of an upgrade in terms of picture quality

Not jumping in to throw shade on this deal, because it is a great price, but I had this TV for about a week and would not recommend it. Reading through these forums has helped me steer away from products that can yield a lot of painful hours with tech support so I share my experience just to provide more information as people make their decisions.

The TV does indeed have great brightness with great blacks, but the software implementation leaves a lot to be desired. You can read the reviews on BB to know that my issues were not isolated and other people are experiencing more/other issues. From random shutdowns that required completely unplugging the TV to get it back on, Netflix not working properly and constant flickering on regular TV. The TV also felt incredibly sluggish like the processor and internals were not capable of handling everything. I will mention that I also own the TCL 435 series running Android TV and that TV has been working like a champ for few months and looking great. I really like that TV which is what made me look forward to the new 646. This TV looks great on the outside and when you turn it on the picture quality does look great, but the software implementation is really lacking. I will add that this is not a Google TV/Android TV issue as my other TCL as well as the Sony X90j that I got after this TV both run great. As an aside, and this is just my opinion, I much prefer the picture on the X90j even though the TCL had better blacks. In any event, I really wanted to like this TV and waited for months to get it, but I like my new things to work well out of the box and don't like hoping that at some point down the line the item will work as intended. I'm also not a fan of spending time on the phone with tech support so I'd rather return and get something that works.
On lousy hardware Android TV can be slow/laggy, but when on decent hardware it's just fine. Google TV has replaced it on most newer hardware and it's an improvement. As long as performance is solid Roku and Android/Google are all good. I can't stand LG, Visio and Samsung smart interfaces though. Roku is definitely the simplest to use out if everything, but not as many custom/advanced features. I personally use an Nvidia Shield TV.

I miss my Roku TCL 6-series. Should have never sold it. If this was Roku I'd grab to get it back.

Never touched Android TV. How does it compare?

Looks like the Roku version is available as well at the same price.
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/tcl-...Id=6424216

Also same price on amazon.

Editing my comment as a couple people have mentioned that the Roku doesn't have the same set of features such as HDMI 2.1. Very important to note. Thanks guys!

Ditto, Never heard anything good about android TV. All reports say it is slow and laggy. I would have pulled the trigger if it was Roku.

They have this "coming soon" price this high so when they actually get them in and sell them for $1800 they can advertise "SAVE $500".

Nice. Not interested in this, but maybe the 2020 model 65R635 will finally go on sale for $700. Been my target for a year. Fingers crossed for Black Friday.
