After installing the V715 firmware and in Google Play Store settings forcing an upgrade (a new version of Play Store will be installed), shouldn't that be enough rather than sideloading the most recent Play Store for Android TV?

Secondly, is there so much better gain in performance to disable the App throught ADB than just disabled it throught Settings, App in Android?
Android settings disable notbworking it activates again and again

@stasiof Do you happen to have a link for any V3XX firmware I have the V458 img just need a V3XX tried the V715 it worked just some issues with my soundbar it kept turning volume low automatically and when I setup I could not select the correct region. Do you also happen to know if TCL plan on add in A11 support for the USA model 55S434 I read somewhere that they are supposed to add support

I don't know much about S434, last I saw V459 picture, 2-3 months ago, but no link posted.

5-10% of new users here,always has hard words about firmware, whatever version released.
I following arround 6-7 forums arround the world and no major complain,about latest version.
I running also V715 and after some trimming, I have no major issue about.
It's not 100% perfect, but is also not that bad.
Edit:
I will never buy TV, if I don't know what I buying.
I paid 450 Euro for my C715 and I can't expect to be like LG C2.
agree 100%, v715 not perfect but a little bit of debloating with adb app control and it becomes a lot snappier, also activate developer mode and turn down the animations from 1.0x to.5x and the interface is even better, at least on my 2019 P8S.
TCL are good value at their price point, however, just like you i do not expect the same performance and PQ as my AU$3500 Sony TV at a third of the price, to quote an old saying, "you get what you pay for!"

Is the picture better compared to Android 9 V662 firmware? If so, where can it be seen that it is better?

no, not really better, however PQ can be materially improved with a few tweaks to the settings, the improvements come with the new android tv interface which, imho, is superior to android 9

UPDATE 17/06/2022
• After several days of use, I would say this is the most stable version since the release of Android 11.
• After performing some tests, the image is very good and I noticed a reduction in ghosting. (The .BIN calibration file is updated in the install file, so I assume a recalibration has taken place).
In any case, I can strongly recommend the 715 version and compared to previous versions, it is the most stable and can provide the best picture and sound result so far.

OK, its the OTA we have all been waiting for. Big thumbs up from me so far, I upgraded from 701, did a reset, updated Play Store and then did all the updates. 701 seemed to get sluggish for me after having it installed for a while so I will report back after a week if I can, but its very smooth and fixed a few issues I was having.
