The Hisense U8G may be the more budget-friendly choice if you're looking for a solid performance in both dark and bright rooms, with especially good handling of reflections and high brightness for well-lit environments. It's also a strong candidate for gaming due to its low input lag and fast response time. However, its viewing angles aren't as wide, which could be a downside if you often watch TV from different positions in the room. On the other hand, the LG C1, while typically more expensive, offers exceptional picture quality, particularly in dark rooms, thanks to its OLED screen's perfect blacks. It boasts a wider viewing angle and better color reproduction, making it ideal for movies and a wide range of content. This TV also has great gaming performance, although it may not be as bright as the Hisense U8G, which could affect viewing in very bright rooms. Give Feedback

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 LG

LG, a prominent TV brand from Korea, has played a significant role in popularizing OLED TVs. OLED technology is hailed as the future of TV technology. Their TVs employ WebOS, a proprietary smart TV software that not only offers seamless functionality but also includes gaming-specific features, earning praise from players worldwide. Often regarded as the gateway to unparalleled viewing experiences, LG's mid-range OLEDs come highly recommended, making them a worthwhile investment for those willing to stretch their budget for superior quality.
