I am loving this thing. It's brighter, quieter and obviously sharper in 4k then my trusty 1080p Xiaomi. It's also larger and heavier. Matte white is nice hopefully doesn't scratch as easily as glossy white.
On the noise because this was critical for me... it's certainly quieter then Xiaomi with its ear piercing whine, but there is some very faint whine along with some fan noise which cycles on/off occasionally. Although not that noticeable during normal movie watching unlike in Xiaomi which i could always hear. Overall I find it satisfactory.
Software is crappy it would have been nice to have regular Android but i was planning to use shield anyway Its nice you can boot directly to your source unlike in Xiaomi global.
1080p image is identical except Xiaomi is less bright. I got image settings nearly identical and played 1080p movie side by side. You wouldn't be able to tell a difference where one is released in 2017 and the other one in 2019.
Aside from that it's already totally worth the upgrade for 4k content especially what they were going for on BF. Definitely a keeper.
