Both Hisense and LG make great products with a wide variety of options that appeal to different buyers. If you are looking to buy a quality TV with durability, buying an LG smart TV is a very good choice. However, if you are looking for something in the lowers price range with roughly similar features, then you might be best served with a Hisense TV. The choice comes down to consumer preference at the end of the day. In this article, we will examine some of the benefits to try and the features you should consider.
The first feature that would be discussed here is the display types. While LG has LCD and OLED, Hisense hedges it by launching TVs with three main displays: LCD, OLED, and QLED. The QLEDs are similar to LCD in many ways, but they have an additional layer of quantum dots, creating more vivid colors. LCD models have a backlight that shines onto a layer of liquid crystals to form the pictures. In addition to that, another main feature is the screen standards.
LG TVs with LED screens, support 4K resolution, and multi-format HDR technology tend to have outstanding image quality. They also possess some features, including advanced color enhancement, high color accuracy, and noise reduction. In higher-end models like the LG UP8770, the TruMotion 240 technology reduces blur to sharpen every detail with up to 240 frames per second. On the other hand, recent Hisense TVs have LED and LCD screens that they brand as ULED, and they support Dolby Vision, HLG, and HDR10 high dynamic range formats and Wide Color Gamut (WCG) coverage. All these features support the outstanding picture quality for movies and gaming.
If you compare Hisense and LG TV, based on sound quality, it will be a close battle.. Hisense’s high-end TV models are equipped with Atmos, a feature assigned to stimulate sound by sending it over your head. LG TVs also allow consumers to experience ultra-surround sound with a Virtual Surround Sound processor and Dolby Atmos audio on 2.2. channel speakers giving them a cinema experience. In the mid-budget TV sets, you can expect atleast a 2.2ch 40W speaker set-up for good sound clarity as well.
The presence of the WebOS platform and LG ThinQ Artificial Intelligence System and support for Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa make the recent LG televisions the brains of the home. LG’s latest webOS 6.0 features an improved menu system for new Cinematic Movement motion processing. Hisense TVs also offer Artificial Intelligence to control your TV and applications from Bluetooth control or phone, including Netflix, Youtube, Prime video, DAZN, among others.
Generally, Hisense TVs have more HDMI ports than their LG counterparts. This might be an important factor to consider depending on the number of sources you want to connect. However, most LG TV’s come with 4K@120Hz in their HDMI sockets, making them a great choice for gaming.
The main selling point of Hisense TVs is the price. Hisense TVs are slightly cheaper than LG TVs, although they have roughly the same suite of features. If budget and price issues are not limiting factors, you can explore all the other factors.
The combination of durability and typically lower costs makes Hisense TVs an excellent choice for consumers. However, LG is still a more established brand overall, and they offer every possible feature you could hope for in a smart TV. At the end of the day, they excel at different things, but your choice comes down to personal preference and budget.
