The 55 inch TV size is the most balanced one as it is not too big nor is it a designed for smaller rooms. There are a plethora of options available in the segment as manufacturers have realised that this segment could be equally important as 40-inches TV. The choice will be tough with several devices boasting of best display and incredible features.
The Sony Bravia KD-55X9300D packs everything that you may desire from a TV. From design to Smart Features, Sony has got everything right about this device. The TV itself is extremely thin with smart cable management that keeps them out of sight. Sony has deployed a range of technologies including TRILUMINOS display, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO, 4K X-Reality PRO, and Motionflow XR which results in an impeccable display. Notably, the device has a refresh rate of 800 Hz which is mind-blowing. The Android power TV along with Google Play offers you access to a complete range of apps.
The Vu has stayed true to its target market and offered a compact 55-inch LED TV at competitive pricing. You get an Ultra HD (4K) Display with a standard refresh rate of 60 HZ. The speaker output is 20W which is fine for regular Indian content viewing. The smart features are backed by Smart OS and Opera TV store. For connectivity, you get four HDMI and three USB slots. This is a perfect TV for anyone with moderate usage and a tight budget.
Samsung has tried doing a Sony with the 55KU6470 as is evidenced by the emphasis given to the display quality. It has employed HDR Premium Technology, Active Crystal Colour, UHD Dimming Technology, and Ultra Clean View technology to improve the picture quality. Backed by 100 Hz refresh rate, the display quality is crystal clear and life-like. The audio output is only 20W, which is on the lower side as one would expect more powerful audio to match the video quality. The 55KU6470 is powered by a Quad-core Processor and runs on the native Tizen operating system.
Well, Panasonic is not far behind in the race of providing the best 55-inches TV with unbelievable display quality. The TH-55DX650D is backed by an IPS panel with a refresh rate of 1000Hz which ensures blur-free and smooth pictures even for 4K content. However, the magic ends there with no other major exceptional trait in the device. The RMS output is 20W which produces decent audio quality. The device is powered by a quad-core processor and runs on a Firefox OS which is some positive change for Firefox lovers.
As we have already seen in the 55-inch LED TV segment, it is all about providing the best display quality. The LG 55UJ632T uses ULTRA IPS Panel which can produce 1.3 million pixels resulting in blur-free pictures with wide viewing angle. The proprietary Active HDR capable of analysing and optimising the HDR10 & HLG content for a better HDR experience is also provided. WebOS and smart remote make using the smart features on this TV quite fun. You also get the expandable memory to explore the apps without any memory limitations.
Yes, we know you are amazed at the specifications and features that you can find in a 55-inch TV. The choice is not simple, but you need to remember that with so many options available, there is a television available that will strike a balance between price, technology, and your requirements.
If you spend a lot of time surfing the internet, you will need latest up to date technology in your device. Comparing the smart features and formats supported along with the available memory is recommended.
While the audio output is an essential factor, try not to let that sway your decision towards any particular device. You can always buy additional sound systems to compensate for lower inherent volume and still save a huge chunk of money. So, carefully compare the devices mentioned in our list and buy the one that suits your requirement.
