As mentioned, the Samsung UA50NU6100 TV with 50 inch screen size has 4H UHD display of 3840 x 2160 pixels.
In addition, the TV also supports HDR content in HDR10+ and HLG format. This means that the TV has capability to display wider range of colors and has better contrast, which results in more life like display. But that it doesn’t have local dimming is unfortunate.
Note that, you will need high definition HDR content to really enjoy the outstanding display of this TV, which you typically get on Netflix, Amazon and Blu-ray discs.
We also recommend that you upgrade to HD set top box as you can’t really enjoy the real display prowess of this TV with standard definition content.
As with most TVs available in India, the refresh rate is 60 hz which is fairly decent for fast action movies and sports. Samsung also claims that you can enjoy lag free gaming with this TV.
Overall, most users are highly satisfied with the display quality of this TV.
The audio has standard 2 channel 20 W output. It supports Dolby Digital Plus, which means you get better surround sound immersive experience provided the content too supports it.
The sound experience is quite good for content from Netflix and Prime. But for standard cable TV content, owing to moderate content quality, you might not be able to have a real immersive experience.
The TV can also be converted to a virtual music system whereby you can play your favorite play lists.

There are a lot of in-built apps including entertainment streaming apps like Hotstar, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Youtube. But as it is not an Android TV, you won’t have access to limitless apps that Play Store offers.
The TV also facilitates screen mirroring from laptop and mobiles phone. You can also store content on Samsung cloud and play them on your TV.
By installing SmartThings app, you can facilitate all smart features easily. It can also be used as your TV’s remote control as the one that comes along is too old fashioned.
Talking about the drawbacks, as mentioned, the remote looks quite boring compared to the TV. When LG provides voice control smart remote control, you can’t but feel Samsung’s remote to be grossly inadequate.
Next, the TV doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity, which again means you can’t connect to your Bluetooth earphone or wireless-ly connect to external sound bars.
In terms of connectivity, the TV has 2 HDMI port and 1 USB port. So, take a count of what all you intend to connect to your TV to check if it will suffice or whether you will have to frequently meddle with the wires.
Though the TV has a few drawbacks, considering the amazing price, top quality display and smart features, it really is a worthy deal to check out.
Though the screen size is less than the former Samsung TV, it has some really cool features that makes an option worth considering. And to top it, the price comes to just about Rs. 45k only.
The TV comes with 43 inch screen size and 4K ultra HD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. It supports multiple HDR formats like HDR 10 Pro and HLG Pro. So, the contrast is better and wider color range is displayed too, provided content is supported. As of now, only Netflix and Prime provides HDR content. HLG Pro is actually HDR for broadcast television. But unfortunately, none of the Indian channels support it.
A few users suggest that the blacks are a bit muted as the TV doesn’t have local dimming capability. But even so, its display is quite vibrant and vivid.
As with most LG TVs, the display is IPS panel. So, a wider viewing angle is possible. This feature is not seen in the previous Samsung TV.
The refresh rate of this TV is 50 hz which is a tad lower than the former Samsung. Even so, you don’t really find much lag while viewing high speed action or movies.
Most user reviews rate the display of this TV as above satisfactory.
The audio quality of this TV is a notch above the rest. With 35 watts sound output and built-in woofer that amplifies the sound and bass, the audio quality is best among the lot.

Additionally, the TV also supports 2 way Bluetooth connectivity. So, you can connect various devices including ear phones and home theatre system wirelessly using Bluetooth.

Talking about the connectivity, the TV has 3 HDMI port and 2 USB port which is again better than previous Samsung TV.
Overall, given the price and if you are OK with 43 inch screen size, we highly recommend you to consider this TV. The after sales service of LG is also quite good in most cities.
The features and functionalities of this LG TV is quite similar to the previous one. It has a larger screen size of 49 inches and price is also obviously higher. But the catch is that its sound output is 20 W only, which is a tad inferior to the previous one.
But if that doesn’t matter much and you are more interested in a larger screen, you could definitely opt for this TV which comes with an amazing price tag.

The technology efficiently differentiates noise from details, and then eliminates the noise and distortion and enhances the clarity of details.
Next, the HDR technology improves contrast and enables the display of a wider range of color palettes. This improves the vividness of display in such a way that color pops out and there is precise distinction between different shades of the same color. To further enhance the HDR effect, Sony uses Frame dimming technology which dims sections of the screen to enhance darkness and display deeper blacks.
Given the scarcity of 4K content, it won’t be much of a compromise settling for a Full HD TV, unless you are in to Netflix and Prime all the time.
The audio quality of the KLV 43W672G is also pretty good. The Dynamic Drive Speaker with full reflex bass has 20 Watt output through 2 channels. You can experience fairly good surround sound. Further, the ClearAudio+ technology provides sufficient distinction between human voice and background score in such a way that dialogues are pretty clear even when in heavy action sequences. Audio formats like Dolby Audio, Dolby Digital and DTS Digital Surround are supported by this Television.
Sony televisions have Linux based operating system. It is fairly smooth and lag free. Apps like YouTube, Netflix, Prime etc are pre-installed and you can also install various apps through their App store. In addition, you can also mirror content from mobile and laptop.
A drawback however is that the TV is not voice search enabled.
Overall, if you are looking for a durable TV and would be happy with Full HD display, then this option from Sony will not disappoint you.
While the former option had Full HD resolution, this option from Sony has 4K UHD display. Let us take a look at its features in detail.

The combination of these technologies make Sony display notches above the rest.
The TV also supports HDR gaming through Play Station 4.
Though the sound output of this TV is 20 Watts, Sony uses numerous technologies to enhance the audio quality. The bass reflex speaker provides rich, deep sounds that have enhanced clarity and bass. Next, the clearaudio+ technology provides better differentiation between dialogues and background music for better clarity. All together, the surround sound effect and clarity provides quite an immersive experience.
Yet another unique feature of this Sony TV is the utilization of DSEE ( Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology which enhances the quality of audio received through internet which usually doesn’t sound great. Thus, no matter the source, you can be rest assured of the audio quality of this TV.
The linux based OS of this Sony smart TV is fairly good. Lags are minimal and the inter phase is overall seamless. Apps like YouTube, Netflix, Prime, Big Flix and Sony Liv are in-built.

If you are looking for a 4K smart TV, then you could consider this option from Samsung which has been receiving highly positive reviews from users.
As mentioned, the TV comes with 4K UHD resolution of 3860 x 2160 pixels. Being equipped with HDR and PurColor technology, you can be sure of having better quality visuals too. While the PurColor technology improves the color range that can be displayed on screen, the HDR technology enhances the contrast. Thus blacks appear dark and deep, while whites are brighter. Colors are vivid and vibrant too. Additionally, the UHD dimming technology also dims sections of screen so that blacks and contrasts are more pronounced.
Compared to the cheaper brands, Samsung has better upscaling technology which up-converts the incoming signal to near 4K resolution. So, you can be assured that the visuals are vivid, clear and of comparatively higher quality resolution irrespective of the content. That being said, if you want to enjoy real 4K display quality, you will have to opt for Netflix or Prime content streaming or play Blu-ray discs.
The Samsung 7 Series 43NU7100 has pretty decent audio quality too. The 2 channel speakers have a total sound output of 20 W. It also supports Dolby Digital Plus for better bass and surround sound experience.

The smart features of the Samsung 43NU7100 are pretty dope. The hardware including Quadcore processor ensures navigation, streaming and gaming are seamless and lag free. Samsung also takes care to update software regularly for enhancing user experience.

Overall, if you are someone who values excellent picture quality and want fairly good audio and smart features, you will be quite happy with this TV.
