If you want a TV that performs slightly better with a wider viewing angle and is better for watching the news or shows in rooms with some lights on, you might lean towards the Samsung N5300, though it's also somewhat more costly. However, if saving money is a priority and you're looking for a TV with newer technology and better color accuracy straight out of the box, the Hisense A4H could be the better option. Neither TV is particularly suited for dark rooms, gaming, or watching sports, and both have poor overall picture quality. Also, the Hisense A4H lacks support for advanced HDR formats like HDR10+ or Dolby Vision, which the Samsung N5300 also doesn't support, limiting their performance with HDR content. Both TVs are better suited for standard definition content and won't offer the best experience for demanding picture quality or HDR content. Give Feedback
