Skyworth Warranty vs TCL Warranty
When it comes to warranty offered, both Skyworth and TCL offered 2 years limited warranty. 2 years warranty says it all for me.
In my own opinion, a good brand is here to stay in the long run but the product not seeking an innovation will not survive. Since, both Skyworth and TCL have survive a decade competition to global market. It safe for me to say that both Skyworth and TCL a good brand.
However, the race to the future and innovation has no sign of stopping. And when talk about innovation and research, it’s sounds money. Yet this Chinese brand stay with few or little margin when it comes to sale profit since they’re offering TV at very affordable price.
We will see who will survive the next revolution.
