Top 10 rating according to KP

1.Philips 50PUT6023

Last but not least, due to the fact that this mod­el is deprived of the smart TV func­tion. How­ev­er. this is a con­di­tion­al draw­back, because many peo­ple con­nect a set-top box to the TV or use it in con­junc­tion with a com­put­er. There is a whole scat­ter­ing of var­i­ous ports, for exam­ple, three HDMI. How­ev­er, when choos­ing this mod­el, you need to check the matrix for the pres­ence of “bro­ken” pix­els. Many buy­ers com­plain about this defect.

Pros and cons

Low price, good set of ports
Lack of built-in smart TV, there is a mar­riage of the dis­play

2. LG 43UK6450

The 42.5‑inch LG 43UK6450 looks like a very attrac­tive solu­tion that will appeal to many.

First­ly, the screen here, in addi­tion to a res­o­lu­tion of 3840 × 2160 pix­els, is made using IPS tech­nol­o­gy and has a view­ing angle of 178 °. Sec­ond­ly, the TV has a smart TV based on LG’s pro­pri­etary webOS. It is a TV-opti­mized plat­form with a large num­ber of appli­ca­tions. In plus­es it is pos­si­ble to write down also styl­ish design with a grace­ful sup­port. This mod­el has very few draw­backs — some­one com­plains about the back­lash frame of the screen, while oth­ers do not like the place­ment of but­tons on the remote con­trol.

Pros and cons

High qual­i­ty screen, pro­duc­tive smart TV
Pos­si­ble incon­ve­nience when using the remote con­trol

3. Sony KD-55AF8

Smart 55-inch TV from Japan­ese Sony can right­ful­ly be con­sid­ered one of the top mod­els on the mar­ket.

This is not a sim­ple matrix with a res­o­lu­tion of 4K, but made using OLED tech­nol­o­gy. So, there are all the advan­tages of OLED screens — real black col­or and an excel­lent palette. How­ev­er. the ques­tion remains with the dura­bil­i­ty of OLED, because such dis­plays are “famous” for pix­el burn-in. The pic­ture can be updat­ed at a fre­quen­cy of 100 Hz, which means there will be no unpleas­ant blur effect in dynam­ic scenes. Smart TV here runs on Android and an expe­ri­enced user can eas­i­ly cus­tomize the TV for them­selves using third-par­ty soft­ware. The audio sys­tem deserves spe­cial atten­tion here — the Sony KD-55AF8 has as many as five speak­ers that pro­duce a total pow­er of 50 watts.

Pros and cons

Real Hi-Tech in the world of TVs, excel­lent col­or repro­duc­tion
Pos­si­ble OLED dis­play defects

4.TCL L55P65US

55-inch 4K TV from Chi­na’s TCL Cor­po­ra­tion, a giant in the home appli­ance indus­try. Among com­peti­tors, it stands out for its strict design and thin frames.

The L55P65US uses a high-qual­i­ty LCD matrix with nat­ur­al col­or repro­duc­tion, but not the high­est bright­ness of 270 cd/m2. Lin­ux-based smart TV works here, which means there will be no prob­lems with installing pro­grams. And in the pas­sive of the TV, you can write only a slight­ly con­fus­ing inter­face and not the largest num­ber of HDMI ports.

Pros and cons

Bal­anced dis­play, smart TV with­out lim­its
There was no place for a third HDMI port in a large case

5. BBK 65LEX-6027/UTS2C

An option for those who want a big 4K TV for lit­tle mon­ey. The 65-inch screen has a bright­ness of 250 cd/m2 and a view­ing angle of 178°.

There is even a smart TV run­ning on Android, but due to hard­ware lim­i­ta­tions, clear­ly imposed by the bud­get BBK 65LEX-6027 / UTS2C, friezes and crash­es of third-par­ty appli­ca­tions are observed. Not all is well with the algo­rithm for opti­miz­ing the broad­cast pic­ture for a res­o­lu­tion of 3840 × 2160. Many users com­plain that instead of black, the matrix pro­duces a dirty gray col­or.

Pros and cons

A lot of TV for lit­tle mon­ey, Android “on board”
Annoy­ing stut­ter­ing, the screen can pro­duce a pic­ture of poor qual­i­ty

6. Xiaomi Mi TV 4S 43

TVs from the mobile indus­try giant are quick­ly gain­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty thanks to the same approach as with smart­phones — good stuff for rea­son­able mon­ey.

The 43-inch mod­el flaunts an IPS-matrix with a view­ing angle of 178 ° and the abil­i­ty to play high-def­i­n­i­tion video in HDR 10 qual­i­ty. There is also a smart TV run­ning on Android with the MIUI TV OS shell. It was not with­out a fly in the oint­ment — there is no inter­face in Russ­ian, the lack of sup­port for dig­i­tal tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ing in the DVB-T2 for­mat and a strange remote con­trol.

Pros and cons

Great screen, low cost
Does not sup­port dig­i­tal in DVB-T2

7. Hyundai H‑LED43U601BS2S

A new 4K TV mod­el from Kore­an Hyundai with an anti-cri­sis price tag. The 43-inch matrix can dis­play HDR 10 and has view­ing angles of 178 °.

True, there is a low bright­ness of the matrix and a long pix­el response time, which gamers will not real­ly like. There is a smart TV on Android on the TV, but due to weak fill­ing, some appli­ca­tions refuse to work quick­ly. For exam­ple, the hard­ware plat­form does not sup­port 4K video stream­ing from YouTube. In addi­tion, users com­plain about flim­sy legs and poor build qual­i­ty.

Pros and cons

Android sup­port, low price for 4K
Flim­sy assem­bly, brakes in smart TV

8. Hisense H55A6100

Anoth­er “pure­bred Chi­nese”, which has a dis­play res­o­lu­tion of 3840 × 2160 pix­els. The screen diag­o­nal here is 55 inch­es, there is sup­port for HDR 10 and a bright­ness of as much as 350 cd / m2.

The TV has sup­port for wired and wire­less Inter­net, as well as smart TV. It is called here Vidaa, but it’s still the same Android, how­ev­er, with a shell from Hisense. It does not inter­fere with the work of the “green robot”, appli­ca­tions from the Play Store are installed and launched. Hisense H55A6100 is some­what heavy com­pared to com­peti­tors and has slight­ly con­fus­ing con­trols.

Pros and cons

Smart TV on Android, high-qual­i­ty VA-matrix
Not the most exem­plary remote con­trol sys­tem

9. Panasonic TX-43FXR610

A Japan­ese TV brand that entered the mar­ket in 2018. 43 inch­es, 4K res­o­lu­tion, cou­pled with an IPS-matrix, allows us to call this mod­el one of the most bal­anced among com­peti­tors in terms of pic­ture.

Pana­son­ic TX-43FXR610. Pho­to: Pana­son­ic

There is also smart TV, but very spe­cif­ic — Fire­fox OS. Yes, the brows­er devel­op­er Mozil­la Foun­da­tion is try­ing to pro­mote its devel­op­ments on TVs. There are still few appli­ca­tions for the plat­form, but in gen­er­al the sys­tem works quick­ly. With the num­ber of ports and inter­faces in the TX-43FXR610, every­thing is fine. The TV also has voice con­trol and a light sen­sor. True, many do not like the sound of two speak­ers.

Pros and cons

Excel­lent pic­ture qual­i­ty, fast smart TV per­for­mance
Weak built-in sound sys­tem

10. HARPER 50U750TS

The 50-inch mod­el from the Tai­wanese man­u­fac­tur­er has sev­er­al trump cards besides the low price.


First­ly, a good matrix is ​​installed here with a bright­ness of 300 cd / m2 and a pix­el response time of 6.5 ms. Sec­ond­ly, the HARPER 50U750TS has an Android-based smart TV. It works ade­quate­ly and quick­ly enough, for exam­ple, the YouTube appli­ca­tion calm­ly plays videos in 4K. There are also dis­ad­van­tages, how­ev­er, asso­ci­at­ed with the body. Its design itself is quite heavy, and fas­ten­ing to ver­ti­cal sur­faces requires refine­ment with your own hands.

Pros and cons

Afford­able price, smart TV on Android
Dif­fi­cult to hang on the wall

How to choose a 4K TV

In 2022, no one needs to be con­vinced that Ultra HD res­o­lu­tion is real­ly nec­es­sary for TVs. But oth­er ques­tions remain. For exam­ple, by what cri­te­ri­on to choose such a device?

4K or Ultra HD?

Let’s make a reser­va­tion right away that this res­o­lu­tion has sev­er­al names that are con­stant­ly encoun­tered when choos­ing a TV: 4K, Ultra­HD, UHD, UHDTV, 2160p. Strict­ly speak­ing, 4K is 4096 × 2160 pix­els, as is cus­tom­ary in movies. But TV uses 3840x2160 pix­els or Quad­HD. For ease of under­stand­ing, the width of 2160p is referred to as 4K. By the way, if you are still think­ing about whether it is worth chang­ing the still old Full­HD, then we recall that Ultra­HD is twice as large ver­ti­cal­ly and hor­i­zon­tal­ly, as well as four in area.


Hypo­thet­i­cal­ly, a 4K TV can be pur­chased for less than 20 thou­sand rubles. How­ev­er, such mod­els have a num­ber of short­com­ings that are unlike­ly to ful­ly enjoy the high res­o­lu­tion. The best 4K TVs of 2022 start at Rs. For this mon­ey, you can get a 43-inch screen, smart TV, Inter­net access and a good set of ports. In the range “from 30 to 50” you can find excel­lent IPS matri­ces, opti­mized “smart TV” and a large diag­o­nal. But TVs with pro­gres­sive OLED matri­ces cheap­er than 80 thou­sand rubles can­not be pur­chased now.

The best smart TVs: a review of “KP”


Sur­pris­ing­ly, man­u­fac­tur­ers stub­born­ly believe that TVs with a diag­o­nal of less than 40 inch­es do not need a res­o­lu­tion of 3840x2160. But in large mod­els, 4K is found every­where. This res­o­lu­tion can have both mod­els with LCD screens and OLED matri­ces. On the lat­est Ultra­HD, it looks clear­er and more spec­tac­u­lar, espe­cial­ly in dark scenes. When choos­ing the best 4K TV in 2022, you should pay atten­tion to the refresh rate of the pic­ture, in flag­ship mod­els it can reach up to 100 Hz. Gamers who plan to use the pan­el with con­soles or a com­put­er need to look at the pix­el response time in the char­ac­ter­is­tics — the low­er it is, the bet­ter dur­ing the game.

Smart TV

Pret­ty much all the best 4K TVs of 2022 have smart TVs. Among them there are a vari­ety of plat­forms. The most com­mon is Android. High­er-priced mod­els tend to use their own plat­forms, such as LG’s webOS, which has many third-par­ty apps in its store and is well thought out.

Installation and fastening

For any TV, how it will be installed is impor­tant. Fix­a­tion on a hor­i­zon­tal sur­face depends on the com­plete stand, its design and rigid­i­ty. If it is flim­sy, it may cause the pan­el to tip over. A TV whose char­ac­ter­is­tics are declared accord­ing to the VESA stan­dard, then it can be hung on a ver­ti­cal ceil­ing struc­ture that can rotate in two planes. Oth­er­wise, the TV can only be mount­ed on a plane. By the way, when installing on a ver­ti­cal plane, you need to con­sid­er whether ports will be avail­able for con­nec­tion.
