The TV has a viewing angle of 178 degrees, a full HD display and a refresh rate of 60Hz. Its Quick Boot technology allows it to boot 80% faster, as claimed by Micromax.

What makes this LED TV smart are the smartphone apps provided by Micromax to control the TV using your handset. The M! Screen app turns your phone in a TV remote with which you can monitor the controls. A trackpad app, the M! Connect, is also being offered. Both these applications function with the help of the in-built Wi-Fi system.

You can connect your smartphone to the Smart LED TV using Miracast which allows your device screen to be mirrored on the TV. This feature also enables you to share photos and videos from the handset on the TV. Avid gamers can use Miracast hook up their gadget screen with the TV while playing Android games.

Another sharing feature in this TV is Homeshare using which you can share multimedia between registered members of the Home group. You can watch TV from your phone using these options. The Smart TV comes pre-loaded with Google Play Store and the home screen displays frequently visited apps.
