The Hisense U6G is a good choice for watching movies and series, as well as cartoons and animations. It performs well in dark rooms and has good overall picture quality, but its gaming experience is just fair, meaning it might not be the best choice for avid gamers. The TV has very good contrast and handles reflections decently, so it will work in bright rooms, but with some limitations. Local dimming and HDR brightness are good, enhancing the viewing experience for HDR content. It supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+, but if you are very particular about sound, be aware that the built-in speakers are not exceptional, so you might want to consider a separate sound system. However, if the price is a significant factor, its lower midrange price makes it an appealing option for its features. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.4
The Hisense U6G performs well for watching news and TV programs because of its strong upscaling capabilities that make lower resolution content appear clearer and its high SDR brightness that ensures a bright and visible display in most viewing environments.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.4
The Hisense U6G is very good for watching cartoons and animation because it displays colors well out of the box, meaning minimal adjustments are needed for accurate colors, and it has a good color gamut which ensures a wide range of colors can be displayed vividly on screen.
Movies & TV shows:
4.3
The Hisense U6G is good for watching movies and cinematic TV because it has a high contrast ratio, which allows for deep blacks and a more immersive experience in dark scenes, and its local dimming feature enhances this by improving contrast further. Additionally, its black uniformity is excellent, meaning the screen doesn't have uneven patches of brightness that can distract during dark scenes, making it more enjoyable for viewing content that relies on good shadow detail.
Overall Picture:
4.3
PerfectRec developed this proprietary score designed to provide an overall assessment of a display's visual performance. It is a comprehensive metric that takes into account many quantitative measures of picture quality, including: contrast ratio, color gamut, color volume, color accuracy, local dimming, gray uniformity, black uniformity, viewing angle, reflections (glare) and color calibration. By combining multiple factors, this score offers a more nuanced and comprehensive evaluation of a display's capabilities than a single factor.
Bright Room:
4.1
The Hisense U6G is good for watching TV in a bright room because it has a high SDR brightness and fair reflection handling making the screen remain visible even in well-lit environments. Additionally, the TV presents vivid and diverse colors due to its good color volume and gamut, enhancing the picture in various lighting conditions.
Gaming:
3.9
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Sports:
3.1
The Hisense U6G has a fair reflections handling capability, which means it might struggle in very bright rooms where glare can be an issue. Furthermore, while it has good response time for fast-moving scenes, its motion processing is lacking and its narrow viewing angles can result in color and contrast shifts when watching from the side, which is not ideal for larger groups spread out across a room.
