#1. LG

The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

LG is one of the most known electronic brands worldwide. After having started in South Korea in 1947, they’ve since expanded to a massive international conglomerate corporation specializing in a variety of consumer electronics. They’re known as an industry leader with TVs because one of their subset companies, LG Display – a different company than LG Electronics – is one of the largest display manufacturers. LG Display is the only supplier for OLED TV panels, and because of that, LG Electronics has a great selection of OLED TV models, and they often cost less than the competition. OLEDs are unique because they don’t require a backlight and instead have self-lit pixels that can turn off individually, resulting in perfect black levels without any blooming, meaning they perform best in dark rooms.

LG’s 2021 lineup includes a few OLEDs, from the LG G1 OLED, which has a unique design meant to sit flush against the wall, to the basic LG A1 OLED, which doesn’t have any of the same gaming features the higher-end versions have. The LG C1 OLED offers the best value for price and features because it has all the gaming features people are looking for, like HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, a 120Hz panel, and variable refresh rate (VRR) support. The main downside of OLEDs is their risk of permanent burn-in with cumulative exposure to the same static elements, but it’s not an issue if you usually watch varied content. If you’re worried about that, LG has an LED lineup, but their picture quality isn’t special because they have IPS panels with a low contrast ratio.

#2. Samsung

The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

Based out of South Korea, Samsung entered the electronics industry in 1969, and they’ve since become a world leader in consumer products. They produce several products, from fridges to phones to their industry-leading TVs. Along with Sony and LG, they’re one of the best TV brands and one of the companies that often come out with new technologies before anyone else. For example, they were one of the first brands to introduce quantum dot TVs in 2015, which they later marketed as QLED to compete with LG’s OLED models. They only have LED-backlit models, as they don’t have OLED TVs yet, and their lineup usually includes a wide range of models, from entry-level options like the Samsung AU8000 to the high-end 8k Samsung QN900A 8k QLED.

While once a market leader, Samsung TVs are losing a bit of value compared to other brands. They tend to be a bit more expensive, and some of their models, like the Samsung QN85A QLED, use IPS-type panels with a low contrast ratio, so they’re not good for dark room viewing. Still, the Samsung QN90A QLED is the best 4k LED TV we’ve tested, so while you’re paying a bit more compared to other brands, you know you’re getting great quality. Samsung TVs are also known for their advanced gaming features like VRR support, HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, exceptional motion handling, and low input lag. However, Samsung TVs tend to sacrifice some picture quality for their best gaming performance, meaning the TVs with local dimming usually have worse local dimming in Game Mode than outside of it.

#3. Sony

Sony A90J OLED Design Picture
The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

Along with LG and Samsung, Sony is part of the big three TV brands in sales. They came out with the first LED-backlit LCD TVs at the start of the 21st century, and they continue making high-end LED TVs in 2021, but they also make OLEDs. Their LED models are better than LG’s because they mostly use VA panels with high contrast, and they tend to get bright, so they perform well both in bright and dark rooms. Unlike LG and Samsung, Sony doesn’t have a proprietary smart platform, but instead, they use Google TV, which is great if you already have a Google ecosystem at home, and you can connect your smart TV with your smart speaker.

Sony TVs are well-known and appreciated for their image processing, as the Sony A90J OLED is one of the best TVs for watching movies that we’ve tested, and Sony TVs also usually have fantastic out-of-the-box accuracy, so you won’t have to worry about getting it calibrated. They typically deliver the best upscaling and motion processing, making Sony TVs a safe choice if you plan on watching older content. On the other hand, Sony has been a bit slow to adopt new technologies, especially when it comes to gaming features. Sony only recently came out with a firmware update to include variable refresh rate and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) support on their 2021 TVs, but they don’t support FreeSync and Sony TVs tend to have higher input lag than the competition.

#4. Vizio

Vizio OLED 2020 Design Picture
The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

Vizio is an American TV brand based out of California, and their TVs are only available in the United States. Unlike the other brands in this list, Vizio doesn’t have a very diversified product range, as they mainly focus their efforts on entertainment electronics, like TVs and soundbars. Their TVs also tend to cost a bit cheaper than the high-end models from Samsung and Sony. They’re known to deliver deep blacks for a great dark room performance as most of them have VA panels, and the higher-end models have at least decent local dimming with minimal blooming around bright objects. Their higher-end LED models also get bright, so visibility isn’t an issue in most well-lit rooms, and highlights pop in HDR.

Unfortunately, one of Vizio’s biggest downsides is the smart interface. It doesn’t have a built-in app store, and there’s no way for you to add new apps. The most popular apps are already installed, and their TVs support casting from your mobile device. Vizio’s SmartCast interface is also known to be buggy as there are times when it will crash randomly or just not work. If you only watch lower-resolution content, then Vizio is one of the few brands that still make 720p and 1080p TVs, like the Vizio D3 Series 2021. The rest of their lineup includes the high-end P Series and P Series Quantum, mid-range M Series, and the 4k entry-level V Series. In addition to their LED models, they also have one OLED model released in 2020, and you can still find it available in 2021.

#5. TCL

TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED Design Picture
The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

Another budget-friendly brand, TCL is a relatively new company in the TV market as they started selling TVs in the United States in 2014. Before that, they started as a Chinese electronics company in the 1980s, and they’ve since expanded into making different consumer electronics, from smartphones to soundbars. For many years, TCL TVs were known for their Roku TV smart platform. Unlike many other major brands, TCL doesn’t use their proprietary platform and instead installs Roku directly into the TV, so you don’t have to buy an external streaming box. Roku is easy-to-use and has a ton of apps available to download through the app store. Also, TCL started releasing Google TVs in 2021, so you at least get to choose the platform you prefer if you want a TCL TV.

Considering their TVs don’t cost a lot, they compete with other budget-friendly brands like Hisense and Vizio. TCL offers a wide range of TVs, including small 720p and 1080p models, which are rare now and are great if you need a simple TV for a small room or a kitchen. Their high-end TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED and the TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED use Mini LED backlighting, providing greater control over the local dimming zones, but even on the 6 Series, the local dimming is decent at best. This means that TCL is still behind other brands for dark room performance. There are also some known issues with upscaling, but that’s more of a problem on their Google TVs.

#4. Hisense

Hisense U9DG Design Picture
The 6 Best TV Brands Of 2022

Hisense is a growing company in the TV industry. Originating from China, they’ve only been selling TVs in North America for a handful of years, and they’re known as a budget-friendly company. Their main competition is TCL, although Hisense is starting to pull away from TCL in their TVs’ overall performance. Hisense has a relatively small TV lineup, but they all offer great value for their price, and they’re better than the competition in terms of value. The Hisense U9DG is their 2021 flagship 4k model, and it’s a very unique TV. It combines two LCD panels to achieve much higher contrast and better local dimming than most LED LCD TVs are capable of.

This unique design has a few issues, though, as it has a slow response time, resulting in blurry motion that will likely disappoint most gamers. It also has abnormally high input lag, although it’s still good enough for casual gamers. The mid-range 4k Hisense models, including the Hisense U8G and Hisense U7G, have a great selection of gaming features, including HDMI 2.1 bandwidth and variable refresh rate technology support. However, they also suffer from strange motion issues, like red ghosting. In terms of picture quality, most Hisense TVs perform well, with high contrast ratios that look great in dark rooms and high peak brightness. Most of their 4k models use quantum dot technology, ensuring they can display a wide range of colors with the latest HDR content. Although some of their TVs have Roku TV, like the Hisense U800GR 8k, most use the user-friendly Android TV instead.
