World-beating colour fidelity is the name of the EZ952’s game. In fact, this is one of the best sets for reproducing lush colours and putting in a stellar near-black performance. Panasonic’s EZ952 UHD TV has a wide-ranging smart TV platform, too, meaning you can watch anything while enjoying sumptuous picture quality.
A serious contender at this year’s T3 Awards, the 4K HDR10 LG W7 comes with a hefty price tag but puts in a hefty performance to compensate. LG’s ‘wallpaper’ TV boasts a semi-flexible 2.75mmthin screen and produces cinema-quality surround sound thanks to a Dolby Atmos-capable external speaker system.
Is QLED really a match for OLED? Samsung reckons so, putting its money on the attractive Q7, a 4K Ultra HDR QLED telly with big aspirations. Designed with a Q processing engine and using HDR 1500 tech, the Q7 delivers thrillingly punchy, detailed images that really caught our eye when testing TVs this year.
Philips Ambilight 901F
When the Ambilight 901F was released, Philips promised that it would produce the most lifelike image yet. We agree, so we nominated it. The three-sided Ambilight 901F with built-in soundbar features Philips’s widest colour spectrum, with eight million pixels producing lifelike colours against a pure black background.
Loewe Bild 7
It’s the designer TV with the designer price tag, but the Loewe Bild 7 HDR TV is also home to fancy-pants Vanta Vision, which utilises cutting-edge OLED tech and picture-processing software to conjure the deepest blacks, making contrasting colours pop like crazy. Props to the Bild 7’s immaculate wireless sound, too.
