I have reviewed so many TVs this year but this is probably my favorite - the 43 inch 4k Ultra HD AQUOS TV by Sharp - the LC-43UI7352E. That's one affordable smart television that I would totally recommend for its good picture, premium sound quality and variety of Smart TV features through the built in WiFi connection. 

Design and looks
Sharp LC-43UI7352E packageSharp AQUOS LC-43UI7352E is a simple looking TV with a thin plastic frame imitating brushed metal/aluminium. The stand is very stable but not looking as premium as you may find in some competitors in the higher price range. I like the thin frame and the simple and clean design of it. It is not going to win the Design awards for 2018 but I totally approve it. As far as I know this Sharp TV is manufactured in Poland and I believe the quality would be on a decent level, just like many of the products made in the European country also associated with some Philips televisions.

Picture quality
Even though the  LC-43UI7352E is a 4k Ultra HD TV most of you will watch their programs on 720p or 1080p and very rarely in Ultra High Definition it is a clear advantage in case you decide to enjoy a movie in maximum resolution. I like the picture quality but I am not fan of how the  LC-43UI7352E performed in the color reproduction - some colors were kind of washed out while others were just a bit sharper looking. I am not sure how exactly the  AQUOS technology works but it is not as good as what Sony and Samsung currently offer in their mid-range 4k panels. Viewing angles are pretty good and I could easily see the picture from any angel without noticeable distortion.

Sound
The sound is on a very very good level and that is thanks to Harman Kardon and their two 10W stereo speakers with Dolby technology (Dolby Digital Plus and DTS digital sound). The sound is clear and I was really surprised to hear nice mids and bass from stock speakers without subwoofer. I will give the sound a well deserved 9 out of 10. The speakers are loud enough and one would be totally fine with the  LC-43UI7352E even without additional sound system, it is really that good (for the price of course). 
Smart TV
I spend about an hour playing with the Smart TV AQUOS features and apps that come with Sharp LC-43UI7352E. It was really easy to set up the TV with the local WiFi (took me about 2 minutes) and had no connection issues after that whatsoever. I tested some YouTube playback in Full HD and picture and sound were just great, no lag or large pixels noticed. I didn't set my Netflix account on the  LC-43UI7352E but I am sure that it would be as easy to use. You can also check additional apps in their company Sharp Aquos NET+ Apps store.

The Sharp LC-43UI7352E also supports Wi-Di so you can easily connect it with Intel WiFi enabled computers.

Connections
The Sharp LC-43UI7352E has a full set of connectors on board: 3 x HDMI, 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, Optical sound, CI+ slot, 3.5 mm headphone jack,  mini Scart, Antenna, Ethernet. I also noticed an SD card slot on the back of the TV.

Remote control and menu
The remote control of Sharp LC-43UI7352E is large and easy to use. All buttons are intuitive, nothing really special, quick buttons for YouTube and Netflix and sensible menu layout with support in multiple languages including Bulgarian and English (those two are the most important I believe, ha ha ha).
