Design and Panel – hisense u6g qled tv in india

They have a thin-bezel design and metal foot stands. Both have a plastic body but Hisense’s plastic is more solid and beautiful. They have a 4K Ultra HD resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. Their MEMC is average. We advise you to consider that there is no MEMC. They both have good brightness.

Hisense claims 700 nits peak HDR brightness but it was recorded as 475-500 nits. Nokia QLED has 410-435 nits peak HDR brightness. Hisense’s claim of 700 nits brightness is both right and wrong. On 100% window, the brightness is 475-500 nits whereas, in the 10% window, it is more. It can show more brightness in darker scenes. The overall brightness of the panel is 465-500 nits which are not bad. They support HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision.

Color profile – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

 Nokia QLED has a very close-to-natural colour profile. Colour management is good but not good enough to show 100% natural and vibrant colours. Hisense QLED has an amazing colour profile. It has punchier, more vibrant, and better colours than Nokia QLED. Its Color profile is very close to nature.

Picture quality – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

Nokia’s micro dimming feature is just a gimmick as it doesn’t have much impact on the picture quality and blacks. Hisense QLED is a full array panel which means the backlight will close where it’ll not be required thereby giving good blacks. The blacks are amazing in Hisense. Full array panel works and turns off the LEDs which gives fantastic blacks (magnificent). You will feel it is an OLED panel and that is the beauty of a full-array panel.

Individually, Nokia’s blacks are good too but in comparison to Hisense, Nokia’s blacks look dark grey. This is normal as we have compared a full-array panel to a normal VA QLED panel. We did a local dimming test to see how Nokia (has micro dimming) and Hisense’s dimming perform.

Based on the test, we can say that Hisense has 32 dimming zones- 8 rows and 4 columns. Nokia’s micro dimming feature doesn’t show many deep blacks. It doesn’t affect blooming and halo which is still there. The halo and blooming on the full array panel is less and it is more enjoyable. Turn off the motion. Blacks are better in Hisense. Keep motion enhancers off for better performance. There are some other features small enough not to be considered or discussed.

Software – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

They have android OS. Nokia has Android 11 whereas Hisense has dated Android 9. Their versions are different but their looks and features are the same. There are some apps with the same suggestions and are displayed on the entire screen. All kinds of apps including apks from USB can be downloaded on both TVs. There is a vast difference in their booting time. Hisense with Android 9 boots up 10-12 seconds faster than Nokia Android 11. Their declared storage is 16 GB but Nokia has 7.5 GB available storage whereas Hisense has 10.5 – 11 GB free usable storage.

The difference is that Android 11 is a very heavy OS with bugs. Android 9 is a light OS with lesser bugs. Hisense U6G 55 inch qled tv has more usable storage than Nokia QLED. Though, their storage can be increased by plugging in a USB. We tested the Chromecast by casting our phones. All Androids can be easily cast in Nokia with minimal lags. All androids can be cast in Hisense too but it has more lags. With their fastest app, phones can be cast faster, and iPhones and iPad can also be cast.

SD and HD channels – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

Both Hisense U6G 55 inch qled tv and Nokia are QLED but let’s check their SD and HD channels performance. The performance of SD channels is average in both which is the same in all 4K TVs. HD channels are wonderfully upscaled.

Performance of OTT platforms – Hisense U6G qled tv in india

The difference in the picture quality of both Nokia QLED TV and Hisense U6G can be seen by comparing their performance of OTT channels. The same content was played on Netflix on both TVs for proper analysis. Red, green and blue were vibrant in Hisense TV. They were not over-saturated. They both play Dolby Vision content. There won’t be any complaints about Dolby vision content in Nokia. But it can’t compete with Hisense’s full array panel no matter how you collaborate these colours. Hisense has more brightness with better colour management or optimization.

We played Amazon Prime to check HDR10 performance. The performance of HDR10 is fantastic. Due to some bug, we couldn’t play the content directly on Amazon Prime on Nokia TV. The content was played via Firestick on Nokia TV. Firestick doesn’t have any impact on picture quality. There is a temporary bug in Nokia TV and that is why the Amazon Prime content can’t be directly played on Nokia TV. Nevertheless, their HDR10 performance is very good.

Nokia is unable to show the colour variation termed HDR performance. HDR10 (High Dynamic Range) and Dolby Vision are HDR video formats. The TV that performs better has better HDR capabilities. Hisense has better HDR QLED capabilities than Nokia QLED.

The Upscaling test – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

The content was played via USB. The 720p content was amazingly upscaled. There was no difference in upscaling. Both the TVs did amazing upscaling. There are no complaints and no comparison in their upscaling. They upscale all types of the content well which looks good.

Connectivity options – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

Nokia QLED has 3 HDMI ports (port 1 is 2.1 eARC), and 2 USB ports (USB 2.0 and 3.0). Earlier they couldn’t be directly decoded but now this bug is resolved and the USB can be directly read. Hisense U6G 55 inch qled tv has 3 HDMI ports (1 ARC), 2 USB ports, and others. The lack of a USB 3.0 port is not a con as no other brand is offering it. The con is the lack of an HDMI 2.1 eARC port. It was important but sadly Hisense didn’t give it. We don’t think Hisense will update it through an OTA update.

The eARC port in Nokia will decode Dolby atmos in a Dolby Atmos soundbar. That’s it. The same can’t be seen in Hisense though Hisense claims this TV as Dolby atmos compatible. At most, its ARC port will decode Dolby digital from a Dolby Atmos soundbar.

Audio Quality – Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review

The clear winner in audio quality is Nokia. The 30W in-built speakers in Hisense are not satisfactory. A soundbar is a must with Hisense TV. But this is not with Nokia. 90% of people won’t need a soundbar with Nokia TV as the audio quality is amazing. Separation can also be heard. The 60W JBL speakers are fantastic. Hisense U6G 55 inch qled tv is the clear winner in viewing angles. This is the front viewing angles and on extreme sides (80°), there will be a 15-20% colour and brightness loss. Nobody watches TV from these angles.

For such wide viewing angles, an IPS panel is the best. Nokia shows 20% colour and brightness loss on extreme sides which is fine as it is a VA QLED panel.

Final Verdict – hisense u6g qled tv in india

Nokia QLED has a good picture quality but in comparison with Hisense, Hisense is the clear winner. It has good picture quality and good, natural and vibrant colours. No calibration is required in Hisense. The colours are punchy. 700 nits brightness can’t be seen in 100% screen. In 10-25%, 700 nits brightness can be seen. Hisense has better colour optimization with this much brightness. HDMI eARC port is missing in Hisense and it is unlikely to come. Dolby Atmos soundbar doesn’t guarantee Dolby atmos surround sound via a TV. Hisense QLED can’t give atmos badging whereas Nokia can give it. They both support Dolby Vision and HDR10. Keep these things in mind before ordering.

On 24th Nov, Nokia QLED costs ₹55,000 whereas Hisense QLED costs ₹64,000. There is a ₹9000 difference between these 55-inch TVs. Which one should you buy? It is all your choice. If you see Nokia separately, you will like its picture quality and other features too. The same can be said for Hisense- the picture quality and features are good. But in comparison, Hisense has better picture quality and better colours. If your budget is ₹65k + the cost of a soundbar, then buy Hisense as its audio quality is average. This is not there in Nokia. This was all about the Nokia QLED and Hisense U6G review.
