Best Budget Smart TV For Streaming: Hisense U6G

Type LED
Resolution 4k
Sizes : 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense U6G is the best smart TV in the budget category that we've tested. It's great overall, and despite its low cost, it provides very good picture quality for nearly almost every type of content. It comes with Android TV, and even though Hisense's remote is one of the few left with a dedicated Numpad, it's great, and you get shortcut buttons to popular streaming services. The built-in mic offers voice control for Google Assistant and Alexa.

In terms of picture quality, it's great for both dark and well-lit environments. It has a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio, and the full-array local dimming feature does a decent job at improving black uniformity in dark scenes. It gets bright enough to fight glare in a bright room and has excellent reflection handling, so visibility shouldn't be an issue. Even though it doesn't have any advanced features like VRR or a 120Hz panel, gamers should still appreciate its quick response time and low input lag for a responsive gaming experience.

Unfortunately, Android TV can take some time to get used to and may not be as easy to use as other platforms. Also, while it displays a wide color gamut for HDR content, its HDR brightness is just okay, so some highlights may not pop how the creator intended. If these issues don't bother you, it's one of the best TVs for streaming that we've tested.
