The Hisense U6G has a higher contrast ratio for deeper blacks, which is better for movies and gaming in darker rooms, while the Sony X77L has better viewing angles suited for wider seating arrangements, so if you have a large family or group watching from different angles, the Sony might be the preferred choice. The Hisense U6G offers better HDR performance with brighter highlights, making it a good pick for high dynamic range content, but if you watch TV in a bright room, the Sony X77L handles reflections slightly better. Consider the Hisense U6G for its superior picture quality in a dark room and if you consume a lot of HDR content; opt for the Sony X77L if you need wider viewing angles and watch TV in brighter environments.

Milton Clark | September 2023
"For an entry-level model, Sony’s X77L is a decent 4K TV. It’s color reproduction, along with crisp and clean picture images revealed plenty of detail and clarity thanks in part to Sony’s excellent video processing."

About Hisense

Hisense, a Chinese TV manufacturer, entered the US market in approximately 2011 and has since acquired TV divisions from various companies such as Toshiba, Sharp, Hitachi, and NEC. Currently ranking as the fourth largest vendor in terms of sales volume, Hisense aims to capture a wide range of TV budget segments. They offer exceptional value with TVs that often outperform their competitors at similar price points, making them a compelling choice for consumers. In the US, they use Google TV as their smart TV software which provides the largest app selection and a very modern user interface, however it is not as user friendly as the software from other vendors.

About Sony

Sony stands as a highly experienced and widely trusted TV manufacturer, earning a reputation that surpasses all others. A Japanese company, Sony has been making TVs for far longs than it has been making Playstation game consoles. Sony's high-end TVs are often regarded as the ultimate choice for videophiles, representing the epitome of quality, albeit at a premium price point. Renowned for their advanced and precise motion handling, as well as their cutting-edge local dimming algorithms, Sony consistently delivers unparalleled performance in these areas. They include Google TV software with all their TV sets, which grants access to the largest selection of apps available and they also include Bravia Core which is a movie streaming platform specifically for Sony TVs that offers higher picture quality by using more bandwidth.
