FAQs:

What is 4K UHD?

Any TV that boasts a 4K UHD display runs in Ultra High Definition, and this refers to how many pixels there are - the more it has, the better the quality. A 4K TV has four times the pixels of a regular HD TV. The term 4K and UHD are completely interchangeable but guarantee an excellent image.

What is HDR?

HDR means High Dynamic Range and works by enhancing contrast which gives better depth and sharpness to images. Whites become brighter and blacks are darker.

What features should I look for?

When looking for a TV, also look for smart features. Smart TVs will allow you access to streaming apps, but make sure that your TV supports the apps you use. If it doesn't, you can always buy a streaming device, but remember that's an additional cost.

If your budget allows for it, look for a TV with a voice function. Not only is it a cool gadget to have, but it'll also come in handy when you inevitably misplace the remote.
