Best 65-inch TV: Which model to buy in 2023
24 February 2023
Not very popular until a few years ago, 65-inch televisions are now becoming increasingly widespread. In fact, the market share of televisions of this size continues to grow. The reasons are various: the democratization of 4K, which allows this format to be fully exploited; increasingly affordable prices, and customers’ search for a more engaging experience. Here is our selection of the best 65-inch TVs of 2023.
What are the best 65-inch TVs? LG OLED C2: It is a high-end TV of the 2022 generation. The Korean brand does not make any concessions. The TV offers excellent image quality: good colorimetry, improved peak brightness (EVO panel), wide viewing angle, and infinite contrast. This TV is powered by the fifth-generation α9 processor. The audio part is composed of a 2.2 system with two speakers and two subwoofers. But LG ensures that the TV’s processor is capable of mixing the audio into a virtual 7.1.2 surround sound. This is enough to watch your movies and series in an engaging atmosphere, especially since the TV is compatible with Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos. The LG OLED 65 C2 is also designed for gaming thanks to its 4 HDMI 2.1 ports and its 120 Hz scanning frequency. It also benefits from VRR and ALLM technologies.
LG OLED 65 G2: The LG G range of TVs is focused on art, with G standing for Gallery. These televisions are designed to be wall-mounted and can be transformed into a work of art at will. It is therefore the LG equivalent of Samsung The Frame televisions. However, there is nothing to prevent them from being placed on a piece of furniture, but the rotating stand provided for this purpose must be purchased separately. It costs about €200 in addition to the already high price of the TV. To come to the characteristics of the LG OLED G2, it is a high-end Smart TV that incorporates an OLED EVO panel that offers a peak brightness of about 1000 cd/m². It is difficult not to repeat when talking about an LG screen these days, but let’s emphasize it again and again: the image quality is stunning, HDR is mastered, and the manufacturer pays particular attention to its features for gamers: 4K up to 120 Hz, VRR, ALLM, and game modes. In addition, its input lag is minimal (less than 10 ms) and adapts to the most demanding gamers.
Samsung QE55S95B: It has a QD-OLED panel and is one of the first televisions to use this technology from the South Korean brand. QD-OLED uses Quantum Dot filters in combination with OLED panels, improving peak brightness, which is the Achilles’ heel of traditional OLED TVs. The Samsung QE55S95B, therefore, offers a maximum brightness that approaches 1000 nit. This is in addition to infinite contrast and top-notch colorimetry. Samsung offers compatibility with HDR10, HLG, and HDR10+, but lacks Dolby Vision. The audio part is still compatible with Dolby Atmos and is based on a 2.2.2 system with two main speakers, two vertical speakers (oriented upwards), and two subwoofers. Gamers will appreciate the presence of 4 HDMI 2.1 ports to enjoy 4K up to 120 Hz, VRR, ALLM, and the TV is also compatible with FreeSync Premium Pro.
TCL 65C839: It is based on a mini-LED panel, a technology that improves traditional LCD screens by significantly increasing local darkening areas.
