TB Community # 022: 4K TV, email app, WhatsApp, Post Office and more

If you were to choose between a Full-HD TV and a 4K TV, which one would you pick? Of course, price matters, but thinking about useful life, with content available and the 8K getting closer, it doesn’t make sense to invest in a lower resolution model. This was one of the main discussions at Community of Tecnoblog this week, between the 12th and the 19th of June.

The question arose about buying a TV with 4K resolution now instead of a Full-HD. And, as the members themselves responded, there is no reason to choose a lower resolution, considering more and more content in that resolution available on streaming platforms.

Some manufacturers have already started betting on 8K, the new consoles (PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X), which will be launched this year, are already ready for 4K. Full-HD, as mentioned in the previous topic, may already be an old technology, for TVs.

Smartphones, especially intermediary and input, still have lower resolutions, which can even be HD, but it is justified by the size of the screen and usability.
