OLED technology is still the best when it comes to picture quality. However, televisions equipped with this type of panel are still expensive and are not accessible to all budgets. This is why many manufacturers are seeking to develop their own technologies in order to meet the demands of demanding consumers. LG has developed its own technology called Nano Cell and which offers a more vivid and more precise color rendering thanks to a filter made up of nanoparticles capable of absorbing stray light emitted by LCD technology. The LG 55NANO796 is equipped with this technology with a 55-inch panel and offers other features to be as versatile as possible such as a low latency mode for gamers, image processing by AI, which improves quality. video streams, as well as HDR 10 Pro format support.

If the TCL brand is not the most popular in Europe, it is nevertheless a giant in its country of origin in China with a large number of innovative high-tech equipment of all kinds and of course, televisions. This 65C815 model is one of its references in Europe with its large 65-inch QLED panel emulating the giant Samsung on its own ground. Also equipped with a 100Hz certified image, it also composes with the majority of HDR processing ranging from HDR 10, HDR 10+ and even Dolby Vision. With these characteristics, we would have liked it to be able to benefit from VRR and even 120Hz support, but this is not the case, because its video connectivity is limited to HDMI 2.0b. However, it has other advantages such as in-house color processing called IPQ Engine 2.0 which allows a faithful and vivid display of chroma, but also the support of Dolby Atmos for sound, sought after by cinema enthusiasts. Finally, this TCL TV runs on Android TV 9.0 which again offers a number of VOD service applications accessible directly without going through an external box.
