What are They Best Used For

Watching Films

When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

Compare the best TVs for film.

Watching Sport

When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

Compare the best TVs for sport.

Playing Games

When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.

Compare the best TVs for gaming.

Key Features

Thickness

The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.
