Ambilight TVs are quite popular among buyers and justifiably impress with their great visual effects. Phillips is still the only brand that sells televisions with the colorful LED technology on the back directly out of the factory.
However, the “The One” is actually one of those TVs and is more on the lower end of the price range. However, you can check out how well the TV actually performed in our lab and whether it really makes sense for you to buy it in our full review.
Compared to older Full HD TVs, a 4K TV promises four times higher screen resolution. But is that on its own enough to satisfy today’s quality-conscious buyer? In our test lab, we demanded extensive proof of performance from the LG UQ81.
Read our detailed review to find out what the device from the 2022 lineup offered us, what it did not, and why we were partly surprised in a positive way.
LG tries to score with a technology combination of Quantum Dots and NanoCell for the QNED81 and convince potential buyers that this LED model is of high quality. Whether the electronics company from overseas succeeds impressively or misses the mark, we found out for you.
Furthermore, you can learn in this hands-on review what exactly awaits you with the QNED series’ entry-level model and in which areas the mid-range TV did not perform so well.
You demand image quality that not only looks good, but as outstanding as possible? A high color fidelity and perfect black at the same time? Then take your time and have a look at our review of the Sony A95K. In contrast to the competition, the first so-called QD OLED from the Japanese electronics manufacturer tries to convince in a different way.
In our review of the QD TV, you will learn what advantages the technology exactly offers, how the Sony device stands out and how Samsung comes into play.
If you are looking for a TV in the mid-range price range, the LG OLED B2 might be worth a look. For a comparatively low price, this TV brings an equipment package into your home that is suitable for many applications.
We will tell you in our comprehensive review which models the device from the 2022 lineup exactly belongs to and whether the B2 even comes close to the popular gaming TV from the C-series this time.
Do you need a new photo frame, but can’t make up your mind when it comes to selecting an artwork? This is exactly where LG’s OLED evo G2 could lend you a helping hand. Are you wondering how that could be done? The magic word is Gallery Design. This special feature makes the G2 stand out and lets the model appear extraordinarily slim.
You can probably imagine that this is still not everything. In our extensive review, we will show you which additional features make LG’s OLED evo G2 become the top model of LG’s OLED lineup and let it compete far up in the league of self-luminous pixels.
With the LG OLED evo C2, the manufacturer from South Korea relies on an Evo panel in the display frame – just like in the Gallery series last year. This new addition to the popular C-series promises more brilliance and improved brightness values than its predecessor.
Read our detailed review of the C2 to find out whether the current model of the 2022 lineup actually succeeds in this and which results our test lab reveals for the OLED.
The follow-up model of the Samsung Neo QLED QN95A features Quantum Matrix technology. A further development that conjures up significantly more lighting levels on the panel and ensures better peaks in brightness. The mini-LED panel with 144 hertz now features HDR10+ Adaptive as well as HDR10+ Gaming. The QN95B also has a special feature in terms of cable routing.
Our review shows whether the Samsung Neo QLED QN95B from the 2022 lineup can really convince us across the board or if you have to deal with some compromises.
The Sony X90J is probably one of the most popular TVs of 2021. This is probably due to its excellent features, which invite both gaming and movie nights in the living room. You don’t really have to do without anything with this mid-range TV.
Sounds too good to be true? We thought so, too, which is why we took a closer look at the X90J in our test lab to see if it can really deliver as well as Sony promises. We answer the question whether you can still buy a Sony Bravia TV in 2022 or whether the wait for the new generation is worth it.
LG tries to claim the OLED throne again in 2021 with the promising successor of last year’s CX. The South Koreans hardly make any compromises in terms of the equipment package.
We have taken a closer look at the popular model from the C-series and reveal what the feature monster has to offer and whether you can buy LG’s OLED C1 with a clear conscience or rather leave it alone this time.
What does our on-site TV review look like?
In order to put a TV device through its paces and make as meaningful a judgment as possible about the quality in relation to the price of a TV, we base our evaluation on a whole range of different optical and technical factors as part of our TV review.
Conclusion of our TV review and alternatives
At the beginning of each review you have the opportunity to read the most important information about our findings in a summary. If you want to dive into the review in more detail afterwards, you can easily navigate through it with the help of the sidebar on the left.
First, we subject the device to an optics review
We then go into more depth and include criteria like the manufacturing quality of the case including the stand and the material quality of the components.
We will then summarize our impressions of this for you in the Processing section.
The panel review: What's in the device?
Once the TV has cleared this hurdle, the picture quality and so-called motion handling are assessed.
Using a macro lens, we illuminate the pixel structure of the panel up close.
We measure how bright the TV gets and at what level the device can display colors and movements.
We pay attention to the following during calibration
Besides these parameters, another point of attention is the image settings. What can the panel do out-of-the-box?
Which measurement values do we achieve with a readjustment of the image in HDR color space and SDR color space?
How does the brightness gradation of the panel behave beforehand and after our adjustment?
To do this, we use a colorimeter, for example, which helps us measure and compare colors.
Last but not least, we check if the response time matches the manufacturer's specifications or if there are unexpected deviations in the screen's response at this point.
The gaming suitability of the TV
In the further course of our TV review, we will of course also take a closer look at the gaming suitability and reveal which functions the corresponding model has under the hood in this category and how good the measured input lag turns out to be.
In short, is it worth the purchase for you if you're a gamer or can you find a better gaming TV on the market at this point?
Of course, we also summarize our impression of the sound quality and give an overview of the audio formats supported by the TV, such as Dolby Atmos.
Review of navigation and other functions
Last, but not least, we will go through the operating system of the device.
How easy is it to navigate through the TV's menu structures? What software interfaces - for example, in the form of voice assistants - does the device offer us?
What is the range of apps available to us and what about smart home applications?
