Resolution 4k

The Hisense A6G is an entry-level 4k TV from Hisense's 2021 TV lineup. Like some of their higher-end ULED models, it comes with Android TV built-in, a user-friendly platform with many apps you can download. The mic built into the remote gives you access to the Google Assistant or Alexa voice assistant features, allowing you to search for content and quickly open apps. It's available in a wide range of sizes, from 43 to 85 inches, but the exact performance depends on which size you get. It's a pretty basic TV without many extra features like eARC or HDR10+ support. However, it's one of a few TVs with a composite adapter so that you can connect old devices like a DVD player or an early-generation gaming console.

Our Verdict

6.5 Mixed Usage

The Hisense A6G is an okay TV overall. The wide viewing angle and decent reflection handling make it a decent choice for watching shows during the day, but it isn't bright enough to fight glare in a well-lit room. It's also okay for watching sports as its motion handling is okay. It doesn't have advanced gaming features, but its input lag is low, so the overall gaming experience isn't bad. Unfortunately, it's poor for watching movies in dark rooms because it has a low native contrast ratio and sub-par black uniformity. It also doesn't get bright enough to make highlights stand out in HDR.

Pros
  • Upscales low-resolution content well.
  • Image remains accurate at an angle.
  • Huge selection of streaming apps.
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • No local dimming.
  • Not very bright.
5.8 Movies

The Hisense A6G is poor for watching movies in a dark room. It has a low contrast ratio, so blacks look gray in a dark room, and it has sub-par black uniformity that results in blooming and clouding throughout. It can't improve either, as it lacks a local dimming feature. On the flip side, it upscales low-resolution content well and can remove judder from native apps or native 24p sources.

Pros
  • Upscales low-resolution content well.
  • Very little stutter.
  • Huge selection of streaming apps.
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • No local dimming.
  • Sub-par black uniformity.
7.3 TV Shows

The Hisense A6G is a decent TV for watching shows during the day. It has a good viewing angle, so you'll see a consistent image as you move off to the sides. It upscales lower resolution content well, so cable TV channels look great, and the built-in Google Play Store has a huge selection of streaming apps, so you're guaranteed to find something to watch. Although it has decent reflection handling, it isn't bright enough to fight glare in bright rooms.

Pros
  • Upscales low-resolution content well.
  • Image remains accurate at an angle.
  • Huge selection of streaming apps.
Cons
  • Not very bright.
6.8 Sports

The Hisense A6G is okay for watching sports. It has a good viewing angle, making it a good choice for watching the big game with a large group of friends, and it upscales cable sports well, with no noticeable issues. It also has a huge selection of streaming apps if you stream your sports. Although it has decent reflection handling, it isn't bright enough to fight glare from bright lights if you watch sports during the day.

Pros
  • Upscales low-resolution content well.
  • Image remains accurate at an angle.
  • Huge selection of streaming apps.
Cons
  • Not very bright.
  • Just okay response time.
6.4 Video Games

The Hisense A6G isn't bad for gaming. It has a fairly slow response time, so fast-moving objects are a bit blurry, but there isn't a ton of blur trail either. It also has low input lag for a responsive feel while gaming. Sadly, it's limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and doesn't support advanced gaming features like variable refresh rate (VRR) support. Also, the low contrast and lack of a local dimming feature mean this isn't the best choice for late-night gaming in a dark room as blacks look gray.

Pros
  • Low input lag for gaming.
Cons
  • No local dimming.
  • Sub-par black uniformity.
  • Just okay response time.
5.5 HDR Movies

The Hisense A6G delivers a bad HDR movie experience. It has a mediocre contrast, so blacks look gray in a dark room, and there's no local dimming feature to improve it. It has low peak brightness in HDR, so small highlights don't stand out. It doesn't display a wide range of colors in HDR either, so colors don't look vivid, and it doesn't deliver a satisfying HDR experience.

Pros
  • Very little stutter.
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • Bad HDR peak brightness.
  • No local dimming.
  • Sub-par black uniformity.
6.8 HDR Gaming

The Hisense A6G is unremarkable for HDR gaming. Gaming on it isn't bad as it has low input lag and an okay response time, but some motion still looks blurry. However, it doesn't support any advanced gaming features for high-frame-rate gaming. Also, HDR looks bad as it has a low contrast that makes blacks look gray, lacks a local dimming feature, and doesn't make colors and highlights look vivid.

Pros
  • Low input lag for gaming.
Cons
  • Mediocre contrast.
  • Bad HDR peak brightness.
  • No local dimming.
  • Sub-par black uniformity.
  • Just okay response time.
7.9 PC Monitor

The Hisense A6G is a great choice for a PC monitor. It has a wide viewing angle, so the edges of the screen remain consistent if you're sitting close to it. It also has low input lag, ensuring cursor movements feel responsive. On the other hand, the response time is just okay as there can be some noticeable blur. It also has decent reflection handling but isn't bright enough to use in a well-lit office space.

Pros
  • Image remains accurate at an angle.
  • Low input lag for gaming.
  • Decent reflection handling.
Cons
  • Not very bright.
  • Just okay response time.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 65-inch Hisense A6G, and the results are also valid for the 43-inch model (Hisense 43A6G), the 55-inch model (Hisense 55A6G), and the 75-inch model (Hisense 75A6G). The 50-inch (Hisense 50A6G), 60-inch (Hisense 60A6G), 70-inch (Hisense 70A6G), and 85-inch (Hisense 85A6G) models are a bit different, as they use a different panel type from the 65-inch we've tested, so the results from this review aren't valid for those models.

There are similar models available in the US, known as the A6GX Series TVs, but they're different because they use a different operating system. In Canada, this model is the Hisense A68G, and the results are also valid for it. As Hisense's lineup differs in other countries, the results aren't valid for any similarly-named models internationally.

 Size US Model Canada Model Panel Type HDMI Ports
43" 43A6G 43A68G  IPS 4
50" 50A6G 50A68G  VA 4

If someone comes across a different type of panel or their Hisense A6G doesn't correspond to our review, let us know, and we'll update the review. Note that some tests like the gray uniformity may vary between individual units.

The unit of the Hisense A6G we reviewed was manufactured in February 2021, and you can see the label here.

Compared To Other TVs

The Hisense A6G is an okay budget TV but has limited features and just okay picture quality. It's an okay choice for a secondary display in a bedroom or office, but there are much better options available within the same price range.

See our recommendations for the best 4k TVs, the best small TVs, and the best smart TVs.

Hisense U6G
50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense U6G is better than the Hisense A6G overall, but as they use different panel technologies, the A6G might be a better choice for some people. The U6G uses a VA panel, resulting in much better contrast and better black uniformity, making it the better choice for a dark room. The A6G uses an IPS panel, so it might be a better choice if you have a wide seating arrangement, as the image remains accurate at an angle.

TCL 4 Series/S446 2021
43" 50" 55" 65" 75" 85"

The Hisense A6G and the TCL 4 Series/S446 2021 are both okay entry-level TVs. The 65 inch models we tested both have IPS-type panels, but each TV is available in a variety of sizes, and some have VA panels instead. Picture quality is similar between each, except the reflection handling is better on the TCL. The TCL also has motion interpolation and backlight strobing features, both of which the Hisense doesn't have. The Hisense uses Android TV while the TCL has Google TV, and while they're essentially the same interface, Google TV is an upgraded version, so apps and settings open more quickly.

Samsung TU7000
43" 50" 55" 58" 60" 65" 70" 75" 82" 85"

The Samsung TU7000 and the Hisense A6G use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses. The Samsung is a better choice for a dark room, as its VA panel has better contrast and better black uniformity. The Hisense, on the other hand, is a better choice for a wide seating arrangement, as the image remains accurate when viewed at an angle.

Samsung AU8000
43" 50" 55" 60" 65" 70" 75" 85"

The Samsung AU8000 and the Hisense A6G use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses, but the Samsung is much better overall. The A6G uses different panel types with different sizes, so the exact performance difference may vary. The Samsung has much better contrast, better black uniformity, so it looks much better in a dark room. The Samsung also has much higher peak brightness and better reflection handling, but the Hisense has better viewing angles.

Toshiba C350 Fire TV 2021
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense A6G and the Toshiba C350 Fire TV 2021 are both okay entry-level TVs. The units we tested of each have the same panel type, but they both have variants with different panel types too. Although picture quality isn't good on either, the Hisense does a better job at upscaling low-resolution content like from DVDs and cable boxes, and it gets a bit brighter. The Hisense has a few more features like the ability to remove judder from 24p sources and display chroma 4:4:4, which the Toshiba can't do. The Fire TV platform on the Toshiba is easier to use than Android TV, but the Android TV is more customizable.

Hisense A6H
43" 50" 55" 65" 70" 75"

The Hisense A6G and the Hisense A6H are very similar overall. The more recent A6H runs a newer smart interface, known as Google TV 11, instead of the older Android TV platform. It's a bit more polished and easy to use. The A6H also supports variable refresh rate technology, which helps improve the overall gaming experience by reducing visible tearing in some games. As far as overall picture quality goes, there's very little difference between these two TVs.

LG C1 OLED
48" 55" 65" 77" 83"

The LG C1 OLED is much better than the Hisense A6G. The LG displays perfect blacks, with no blooming or uniformity issues, making it a better choice in a dark room. The LG also has much better reflection handling, higher peak brightness, and a nearly instantaneous response time.

LG UP7000
43" 50" 55" 65" 70" 75"

Although there aren't many significant differences between them, the LG UP7000 is slightly better than the Hisense A6G. Both TVs use different panel types with different sizes, meaning the exact performance difference may vary. The LG is a bit brighter, but the Hisense is more accurate out of the box. The Hisense has more HDMI ports than the LG, which might be a factor depending on the number of sources you're looking to connect.

Amazon Fire TV 4-Series
43" 50" 55"

The Hisense A6G and the Amazon Fire TV 4-Series use different panel types, each with strengths and weaknesses. The Amazon TV is better for a darker environment, as it has better contrast and better black uniformity. The Hisense has much better viewing angles and much better accuracy, but it's better suited for a room with a bit of lighting, as it has low contrast but can't get bright enough to overcome glare.

Amazon Fire TV Omni Series
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The 65-inch Hisense A6G and the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses, but the Amazon is better overall for most people. The Amazon TV has much better contrast, better black uniformity, and it's a bit brighter. The Amazon TV can remove judder from any source. On the other hand, the Hisense has much better accuracy, even after calibration, as the Amazon TV has only a basic white balance calibration system. The Hisense also has better viewing angles. Note that there are some variants of the A6G that use VA panels; we expect them to perform closer to the Amazon TV.

Sony X80J
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Sony X80J is better than the Hisense U6G. The Hisense uses different panel types with different sizes, meaning the exact performance difference may vary. The Sony is a lot brighter, has better gray uniformity, and a faster response time. The Sony also has much better accuracy out of the box, but this can vary between units. On the other hand, the Hisense can remove judder from native apps, but the Sony can only remove judder from external 24p sources.

Hisense H8G
50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense H8G is much better than the Hisense A6G we tested. The A6G uses different panel types with different sizes, so the exact performance difference may vary. The H8G has a full array local dimming feature and much higher peak brightness in SDR and HDR. Thanks to the VA panel, the H8G also has much better contrast and better black uniformity, but this comes at the expense of viewing angle, as the A6G remains accurate to a much wider viewing angle.

Vizio D3 Series 2021
40" 43" FHD - 24" FHD - 32" HD - 24" HD - 32"

The Hisense A6G and the Vizio D3 Series 2021 use different panel technologies, each with strengths and weaknesses. The Hisense is a better choice for a brighter room with a wide seating arrangement, as it's a bit brighter and has better viewing angles. The Vizio is a better choice for watching movies in a dark room, as it has much better contrast and better black uniformity. On the other hand, the Vizio is limited to a 1080p resolution in most sizes, and it doesn't support HDR, so the Hisense is a better choice if you want to enjoy the latest formats.

The Hisense A6G has a very similar design to the Hisense U6G and Hisense U8G. The thin bezels and sleek design are nice for a budget model. Some of the larger sizes have a slightly different design, mainly with the back panel.

Stand

Sadly, the stand doesn't support the screen all that well, and there's noticeable wobble. While it has a wide footprint, you can also move the feet inwards for smaller tables.

Footprint of the 65-inch model as shown: 50.3" x 11.7". The alternate position, as shown here, has a footprint of 25.2" x 11.7". Regardless of which configuration you choose, the TV sits 3.1 inches above the table, so most soundbars should fit without blocking the TV.

Back
Wall Mount VESA 400x300

The back is metal on the top and plastic on the bottom section. The inputs face to the side, but because they're towards the center, they can be hard to reach, especially if you have it wall-mounted. There are tracks on the back for cable management, but they don't hold the cables very well.

The Hisense 65A6G has poor peak brightness in SDR. It isn't bright enough to overcome glare in a bright living room and is best suited for a room with low levels of lighting.

These results are from after calibration in the 'Theater Night' Picture Mode with the Backlight Level set to 'Max'. Changing the Picture Mode to 'Standard' and setting Active Contrast to 'High' results in a slightly brighter image, but it isn't as accurate.

The Hisense 65A6G has poor peak brightness in HDR. It isn't bright enough to show off highlights in HDR, and without a local dimming feature, small highlights don't pop against the rest of the screen. It follows the target PQ curve fairly well for dark scenes, but there's a sharp roll-off at the peak brightness, causing a loss of fine details in bright scenes.

These results are in the 'HDR Theater' Picture Mode. Unfortunately, this is also as bright as the TV gets. Even with the Picture Mode set to 'HDR Standard', the peak brightness is about the same, but some darker scenes are boosted a bit, as shown in this EOTF.

The Hisense A6G has decent reflection handling. The semi-gloss coating doesn't disperse reflections very well, so direct reflections are very noticeable and can be distracting. It handles moderate amounts of light well, but considering it doesn't get bright, it's best to avoid placing it in a bright room.

The out-of-the-box accuracy is okay. The white balance isn't very accurate as almost all shades of gray have noticeable inaccuracies. The color temperature is cool, giving everything a bluish tint, and some saturated colors are off too. Finally, gamma doesn't follow the 2.2 target for a moderately-lit room as most scenes are brighter than they should be.

The Hisense A6G has an okay color gamut for HDR. It displays a good amount of colors in the commonly-used DCI-P3 color space with good tone mapping, meaning most colors appear as they should. However, it isn't future-proof as it has limited coverage of the Rec. 2020 color space with bad tone mapping, so colors are inaccurate.

The Hisense A6G has a poor color volume. It's limited by the narrow color gamut, and due to the low contrast ratio, it can't display dark saturated colors.

This TV has an okay response time. There's very little difference in the pixel response time between different transitions; they're all just okay. It results in some noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects. The backlight flicker also causes image duplication.

PWM Dimming Frequency

The backlight isn't flicker-free as it uses pulse-width modulation to dim the backlight. The backlight flickers at a fixed frequency when you set the backlight to anything below its max. It causes noticeable duplications in motion and may bother you if you're sensitive to flicker.

The Hisense A6G TV doesn't have an optional backlight strobing feature to reduce persistence blur, and it always flickers at 180Hz, which can be distracting as it causes image duplications.

The Hisense A6G automatically removes 24p judder from native 24p sources like apps and Blu-ray players, which helps with the appearance of motion in movies. However, it can't do it from sources that don't have a Match Frame Rate feature, like a cable box.

This TV has a disappointing frequency response. The low-frequency extension (LFE) is very high, resulting in almost no bass response. Above the LFE, the sound profile is fairly well-balanced at moderate volume, resulting in clear dialogue. Unfortunately, there's a bit of compression at max volume.
