LG OLED C2
Our top smart TV pick, the LG OLED C2, is tough to beat for most people, though it is pricey.
Its picture quality is simply stunning, buoyed by an outstanding Alpha a9 Gen 5 processor. LG didn’t skimp on audio quality either, showing off 7.1.2-channel sound to help create a “virtual surround sound” effect.
With four HDMI 2.1 ports for hosting gaming consoles and other equipment, the LG OLED C2 is a superb choice for gamers. Its beautiful contrasts make gaming graphics truly “pop” and are sure to wow the gamers in your family.
Samsung QN90A Neo QLED
Another reasonably expensive but excellent Smart TV option is the Samsung QN90A Neo QLED, especially if you don’t want an OLED TV.
Samsung shows off its penchant for spectacular 4K-picture quality, and the QN90A Neo QLED has one of the brightest displays on the market today. We also love the environmentally-friendly solar-powered remote control, meaning you won’t have to worry about swapping batteries to turn on your TV.
TCL 6-Series Roku TV
If this is not a great year for you to splurge on an expensive smart TV, but you’re still in the market for a new and improved streaming television, you can’t go wrong with the TCL 6-Series Roku TV.
Long considered one of the best smart TV values, the TCL 6 sports brilliant picture quality. We’re especially impressed by its mini-LED, which brightens up the display. Little details stand out, too, like how its architecture lets you hide cables, which makes this more affordable smart TV an intelligent choice!
Amazon’s latest iteration of the Echo, now on its fifth generation, features more than just the smooth-talking Alexa and her comprehensive knowledge and quick wit.
The Echo can serve as the “Grand Central Station” of almost all your home’s smart home devices, especially if you are part of the larger Amazon ecosystem of smart devices. While its audio quality is not as clear or loud as other smart speakers, its multifunctionality works well for most households.
For the audiophile in your life—or if you just love to hear quality sound when you play music—it’s hard to beat the dulcet tones of the Sonos One Smart Speaker.
While it has a heftier price tag than the Echo or other smart speakers, music lovers will be astounded by the Sonos One’s sound quality and ability to fill a room with tunes.
Streaming Sticks and Other Streaming Devices
Roku Streaming Stick 4K
One of this year’s best overall streaming sticks is the Roku Streaming Stick 4K. It updates Roku’s earlier iterations with Dolby Vision technology and improved performance and speeds, making it a worthy upgrade. And as it’s priced at around $50, the Roku Streaming Stick 4k is a solid value.
Apple TV 4k
For Apple aficionados or for those simply looking for a higher-end streaming device, the Apple TV 4k is a nice indulgence.
Its speed and power are impressive, with apps loading noticeably faster than many other streaming devices. And because it utilizes HDR10+ technology, expect exceptional brightness and color, too (though this will also depend on the capabilities of your television).
iPhones, Mac computers, and iPads, along with their apps, passwords, and settings, sync like a dream with Apple TV, so if you’re already ensconced in the Apple ecosystem, it may be the right choice.
