Compared to other brands

  • Good value. Hisense TVs we've tested have good picture quality at a lower price than their competitors.
  • Good smart OS. Hisense TVs used to use the Opera TV OS that was quite limited. They have since switched to a mix of Android TV and Roku for their high-end models.
  • Below average viewing angle. Hisense TVs have very drastic drops in picture quality at an angle.

Overall, Hisense TVs have good picture quality at a low price. That makes them good value for most uses. Don't expect a very seamless Smart OS, however.

Hisense's Lineup - Description and Reviews

Hisense's lineup is mostly budget oriented. They're starting to introduce more high-end models, but the bulk of their TVs are aimed at the low-price market.

2018 models

For 2018, Hisense updated most of their lineup, with higher-end models running Android TV 8.0, and most of the lineup supporting Amazon Alexa integration.

Conclusion

Hisense is a growing brand. They've shown to provide a competitive product in the mid-range sector and are looking to expand in other price ranges. Our sample is pretty small, but their TVs tend to be at feature parity with competing products that are quite often quite a lot more expensive. They aren't without flaws, however. Their smart system is a definite weakness compared to Samsung, TCL, or Sony, although it has improved recently.
