Our pick for the best television of 2012 faced some stiff competition
from the Samsung 55ES8000. We chose the LG model as it had perfected the art of 3D display, which is clearly its USP. It does most of the smart functions you would expect from a TV of its class, but then that is a given. Samsung was really up there too, but we thought that its cutting-edge features needed a bit of fine tuning
for that Smart TV to be at the very top.
