In this post, I will be comparing MI 4A Pro vs MI 4A Horizon TV. MI’s 4A Pro has been one of its best selling models in India till date. However, they have launched a newer version MI 4A Horizon, which is being positioned as a better model. Is it really better? or is the same product repackaged at a higher price?
Read on to find out!
Summary – Which one would I Buy?
I looked at all the aspects of these models, including screen quality, voice quality, connectivity features and price. If I had to buy a television between the two, I would surely opt for this model. Make sure you compare price on Amazon too by clicking on this link.
Why I choose this model?
The screen quality is much better. The bezels are very thin, making the TV look really premium. The voice quality is slightly better too. For a detailed review, continue reading further.
The only alternative worth considering is this model by OnePlus.
MI 4A Pro vs MI 4A Horizon TV – Comparision
Ok, so with the recommendation already made, I am assuming you would want to know about the differences in these two models. However, before we get to that let me touch upon briefly the two models that MI 4A Horizon offers.
Namely, the 32 Inch model and the 43 Inch variation.
MI TV 4A Horizon 32 Inch vs 43 Inch
Apart from the very obvious differences between the screen size and the pricing for the two. There is a third major difference between these two models. The 32-inch model comes with an HD Ready 1366 x 768 Pixel screen while the 43-inch model has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel screen.
So, if your living room can accommodate a 43 Inch TV (has around 5 feet of viewing distance space), I would recommend buying the full HD screen.

So, with that out of the way, let us get back to the main comparison of MI 4A Pro vs MI 4A Horizon TV.
MI 4A Pro vs MI 4A Horizon TV – Main Differences
- The main difference between the two is that MI 4A Horizon has even slimmer bezels (the edges of the television are know as bezel). This gives the television a much more premium looks and enhances the viewing experience.
- Both TVs use the same speaker (20 Watts). However, I feel the 4A Horizon speakers are slightly better tuned. If you are planning to use additional soundbars, then it will hardly matter which one you choose (In terms of sound output)
- Horizon TV comes with a quick wake functionality but I assume it will be soon added to MI 4A Pro too via a software update.
- As many of you would already know, 4A Pro is the older model and was launched in the year 2019. While 4A Horizon is the latest model launched in the year 2020.
