The Hisense H6510G is an okay budget-friendly TV. It's a Black Friday variant of the Hisense H6570G with improved performance. Unlike the H6570G, it displays native 4k content perfectly. It has an outstanding contrast ratio and incredible black uniformity, so it's a great choice for watching movies in dark rooms. However, it's not ideal for wide seating arrangements because it has narrow viewing angles and you lose image accuracy when viewing off-center. It's okay for casual gaming thanks to its fairly low input lag, but there's too much lag for competitive gaming. The built-in Android TV offers a ton of apps available to download and the interface is fairly smooth to navigate.

Our Verdict

6.7 Mixed Usage

The Hisense H6510G is an okay TV for most uses. It performs best when watching movies in dark rooms thanks to its outstanding contrast ratio and incredible black uniformity, but there's no local dimming. It's not suggested for wide seating arrangements due to its narrow viewing angles. It's okay for casual gaming as it has fairly low input lag, but fast-moving content looks a bit blurry.

Pros
  • Outstanding contrast ratio.
  • Decent reflection handling.
  • Low enough input lag for casual gaming.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Motion looks blurry.
  • Can't display wide color gamut.
6.8 Movies

The Hisense H6510G is okay for watching movies. It has an outstanding native contrast ratio and incredible black uniformity, but it lacks a local dimming feature to further deepen any blacks. It also removes 24p judder from native apps and Blu-rays.

Pros
  • Outstanding contrast ratio.
  • Incredible black uniformity.
Cons
  • No local dimming feature.
6.8 TV Shows

The Hisense H6510G is okay for watching TV shows. It upscales lower-resolution content without any issues and the Android TV Google Play Store has a ton of apps available to download. Sadly, it has narrow viewing angles, so you lose image accuracy when viewing from the sides. Despite its decent reflection handling, it doesn't get bright enough to combat glare in well-lit environments.

Pros
  • Decent reflection handling.
  • Upscales lower-resolution content well.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Doesn't get bright enough to combat glare.
6.5 Sports

The Hisense H6510G is alright for sports. It has an okay response time, but you may notice motion blur with fast-moving objects. It also upscales 720p content, such as from cable boxes, without any issues. Sadly, it has narrow viewing angles and low peak brightness, so it's not suggested for use in a well-lit environment or rooms with a wide seating arrangement.

Pros
  • Decent reflection handling.
  • Upscales lower-resolution content well.
Cons
  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • Doesn't get bright enough to combat glare.
  • Motion looks blurry.
6.6 Video Games

The Hisense H6510G is okay for video games. It has an okay response time, but you may still notice image duplication. It has fairly low input lag for casual gaming, but it's too high for competitive gaming. It also lacks extra gaming features such as variable refresh rate support. However, it's great for dark-room gaming thanks to its outstanding contrast and incredible black uniformity.

Pros
  • Outstanding contrast ratio.
  • Low enough input lag for casual gaming.
Cons
  • Motion looks blurry.
  • No variable refresh rate support.
6.5 HDR Movies

The Hisense H6510G is alright for HDR movies. It displays deep blacks thanks to its outstanding contrast ratio and incredible black uniformity. However, it fails to display a wide color gamut and doesn't get bright enough to make highlights pop in HDR.

Pros
  • Outstanding contrast ratio.
  • Incredible black uniformity.
Cons
  • Can't display wide color gamut.
  • Low HDR peak brightness.
6.7 HDR Gaming

The Hisense H6510G is alright for HDR gaming. It has an okay response time and fairly low input lag for casual gaming, but it may be too high for competitive gaming. It also has an outstanding contrast ratio, but it fails to display a wide color gamut for HDR content and has low peak brightness.

Market Context
Market Context
Market Context

The Hisense H6510G is an entry-level 4k TV and a variant of the Hisense H6570G. It's only available at Best Buy for Black Friday in 2020. It competes with other budget-friendly options, such as the TCL 4 Series 2020, Vizio V Series 2020, and the Toshiba Fire TV 2020.

Design

Curved No

The Hisense H6510G has a decent design and looks almost identical to 2019's Hisense H6570F. It has thicker borders than the Hisense H6570G and the back looks different. Overall, there's nothing premium about its design as it's made with basic plastic, and the metal on the back feels cheap.

Design
Stand

The stand consists of two plastic feet that hold the TV fairly well, but there's still some wobble. The stand is almost as wide as the TV itself, so you need a big table to place it on. The feet can't be moved inwards to accommodate for smaller tables.

Footprint of the 55" TV: 39.9" x 8.9".

Design
Back
Wall Mount VESA 200x200

The Hisense H6510G has the same pattern on the back as the Hisense H6570F. It's mainly metal except for the part where the inputs are, which is made out of plastic. Sadly, there's no cable management.

Borders
Borders 0.59" (1.5 cm)

This TV has thicker borders than the Hisense H6570G, which may be a bit distracting.

Thickness
Max Thickness 3.19" (8.1 cm)

The panel itself is thin, but the TV may stick out a bit when wall-mounted due to the thicker bottom portion.

Design
Build Quality

The Hisense H6510G has an okay build quality. The plastic and metal materials feel cheap. The bezels are a bit loose and you can easily move them. The stand supports the TV well, but it doesn't remove wobble completely. Lastly, the screen torques a bit, which is something we also noticed with the Hisense H6570G.

The Hisense H6510G has an outstanding contrast ratio, which is expected from a VA panel, and it may vary between units. It delivers deep blacks when viewed in the dark. We received reports that the 75 and 85 inch models have local dimming that would improve the contrast, but we don't know for sure.

The Hisense H6510G has disappointing peak brightness, similar to the Hisense H6570G. Its brightness remains consistent across varied content, but it doesn't get bright enough to combat glare. If you want a significantly brighter TV, check out the Hisense R6090G.

We measured SDR peak brightness in the 'Theater Night' Picture Mode after calibration. If you want a brighter image and don't mind losing image accuracy, we achieved 286 cd/m² in the 10% window in the 'Game' Picture Mode with Active Contrast set to 'High'.

This TV has poor HDR peak brightness. It only gets a bit brighter than in SDR, and it's not enough to make highlights pop the way the creator intended.

We measured peak brightness in the 'HDR Theater' Picture Mode with everything else at their default settings. We reached 285 cd/m² in the 25% window with the 'HDR Standard' Picture Mode, but this results in a less accurate image.

The gray uniformity isn't bad, but this may vary between units. The edges of the screen are darker and there's dirty screen effect in the center. Uniformity is actually worse in dark scenes as there's backlight bleed at the edges.

The out-of-the-box color accuracy is bad, but this may vary between units. White balance is way off and most colors are slightly inaccurate. Gamma doesn't follow the target curve very well and most scenes are brighter than they should be. Color temperature is also much warmer than our 6500K target.

We normally measure accuracy using our recommended picture settings that we keep the same across one brand. In this case, we use the 'Low' Color Temperature on all our Hisense TVs, but on this one, it results in a very warm temperature. Setting it to 'Medium' results in a color temperature of 6612K, which is much closer to our 6500K target. It also significantly improved the white balance dE to 2.78, color dE to 2.41, and gamma stayed about the same.

The color accuracy after calibration is excellent, but it was difficult to calibrate and it's not as good as some other TVs we've tested. However, your experience may vary. There are still some slight inaccuracies with colors and white balance, but most people shouldn't notice them. Gamma does a much better job at following the target, and color temperature is almost spot on with our target.

Like the Hisense H6570G, the Hisense H6510G has an okay color gamut, but it isn't considered a wide color gamut for HDR content. It has good coverage of the commonly-used DCI P3 color space, but very limited coverage of the wider Rec. 2020. The EOTF follows the target curve well, except some scenes are over-brightened. The image is a bit brighter in 'Game' mode, as you can see in this EOTF.

If you find HDR too dim, set Gamma to '1.8' and Active Contrast to 'High'. This results in a noticeably brighter image, as seen in this EOTF.

We received reports that the 75 and 85 inch models display a wide color gamut for HDR content, but we don't know for sure.

The color volume is mediocre. It displays dark, saturated colors well thanks to its outstanding contrast. However, it's limited by the lack of a wide color gamut and by its low peak brightness.

This TV has fairly low input lag, but it's not good enough for competitive gaming. It's about the same as the Hisense H6570G, except the input lag at 1440p is significantly higher. We had to measure the 1440p input lag with our laptop, instead of the PC we normally use for these tests because our PC couldn't force the 1440p resolution properly. You need to be in 'Game' mode to get the lowest input lag possible. If you want something with much better input lag, then check out the TCL 4 Series/S434 Android 2020.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 55 inch Hisense H6510G, and for the most part, we expect our results to be valid for the 50 inch (50H6510G), 65 inch (65H6510G), 75 inch (75H6510G), and 85 inch (85H6510G) models as well. This TV is a variant of the Hisense H6570G and is a Best Buy-exclusive model released for Black Friday. We aren't aware of any variants outside the United States.

55" 55H6510G
65" 65H6510G
75"  75H6510G
85" 85H6510G 

We received reports that the 75 and 85 inch models have local dimming and a wide color gamut for HDR content, but we don't know for sure. If someone comes across a different type of panel or if their Hisense H6510G doesn't correspond to our review, let us know and we'll update the review. Note that some tests, such as the gray uniformity, may vary between individual units.

The unit we reviewed was manufactured in July 2020, and you can see the label here.

Compared To Other TVs

The Hisense H6510G is an okay overall TV that performs well for its price, and it's a good choice if you're looking for a cheap 4k TV. It's similar to the Hisense H6570G but performs better overall as it displays native 4k content perfectly. Although the built-in Android TV isn't as easy-to-use as the Roku TV on the TCL 4 Series 2020, most people should be happy with it. Also see our recommendations for the best budget TVs, the best 80-82-85 inch TVs, and the best 4k TVs.
