Decent Build Quality with a Premium Look

The Hisense H9G has a Premium Look due to the metal borders around the screen. The rest of the TV is entirely made out of plastic though. The stand is a bit more on the bold side than we`re used to with current TV sets.  There are grooves on the back and clips for the feet for cable management. If wall-mounted the Hisense ULED isn’t as flat as competing models but still flat enough. As a few inputs are facing backwards they might be hard to reach or use when wall-mounting the TV.

Impressive HDR Performance

The TV comes with a 10bit-VA-Panel with deep blacks and a very high contrast ratio of more than 10000:1. The ULED with a Quantum Dot Layer  and a well implemented Full Array Local Dimming Feature reaches a maximum brightness of 1800 Nits. In combination with the wide color gamut and color space coverage this makes excellent specs for HDR. And with the Hisense H9G supporting both dynamic standards Dolby Vision and HDR10+ you’ll always get the best picture quality possible. It sadly lacks Dolby Vision IQ so when playing Videos with Dolby Vision it can’t optimize the content to the ambient light. As with most VA-LCD-TVs the viewing angles aren’t great so the picture quality will suffer if viewed at an angle.

Hardly any motion blur

The Hisense H9G has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. With a response time of just about 3 milliseconds it performs extremely well resulting in hardly any motion blur. The Motion Interpolation Feature introduces quite a few artifacts in hectic scenes. But the 60Hz Black Frame Insertion Feature works just as expected. Moreover with 960 Hz the backlight frequency is high enough to be not perceived as flickering by the human eye. The ULED TV can also remove Judder from any source.

Subpar Gaming Performance

With an input lag of about 15 milliseconds gamers shouldn’t notice any delay. But even though the TV does have a 120Hz Panel it doesn’t properly display 120Hz content so you should stick with 60Hz inputs. But as the H9G lacks any further gaming features like HDIM 2.1, VRR or even an Auto Low Latency Mode, it is ok for the occasional gamer but not for the more serious ones.

You should get a soundbar

Unfortunately the stereo sound of the TV isn’t really convincing. The two integrated 10W-speakers can reproduce dialogues quite well and get very loud but they still leave space for improvement because the bass could be louder. The ULED TV supports DTS and Dolby Digital+ over HDMI ARC but lacks an HDMI eARC connection so you can only get the compressed Dolby Atmos signal via Dolby Digital+ with an external soundbar or HiFi system.

Ad-free Android Smart TV

In terms of Smart TV the Hisense H9G offers many features and amenities. What is definitely positive is that the whole interface is free from annoying ads and the selection of apps is really huge. The TV operates with Android 9.0 software. The smart remote works with the app Hisense RemoteNOW and voice control via Google Assistant. It isn’t really a premium remote control but it does the job quite well. Sadly there aren’t any further features like Apple Airplay 2 or a smart hub.

Impressive HDR Perfromance at a reasonable price

The Hisense H9G is a well designed TV with impressive picture quality especially for its price point. It can deliver an great HDR Performance in dark rooms. With a decent soundbar you’ll have a great setup for enjoying movies or tv shows in the evening. It doesn’t have any of the recent or next gen gaming features and its picture quality degrades rather quickly if viewed at an angle. But if those two things are of no concern to you the Hisense H9G ULED is a great TV with excellent value for money! It still falls behind real Premium class TVs like OLEDs or more expensive LCD TVs.

Alternatives to the Hisense H9G

Hisense H8G
Cheaper 2020 Hisense ULED TV

When comparing the H9G to the cheaper ULED from 2020, the H8G, there’s a huge difference even though it doesn’t look like it at first sight. The H8G has a lower contrast ratio and doesn’t nearly get as bright as the H9G. Also the reflection handling and motion handling are worse. The H8G’s input lag might be a bit lower but that doesn’t make it a good gaming TV.

TCL 6 Series 2020
The toughtest competition

The TCL 6 series comes close to the H9Gs performance. While black level and contrast ratio are very similar the TCL has a slightly worse local dimming feature and worse reflection handling as well as a slightly higher response time. The TCL 6 series does have better built in speakers though. If you prefer the Android OS on the Hisense or the Doku platform on TCL is a matter of personal preference.
