1. Panasonic TX-65DX902B

Screen size: 65-inch | Tuner: Freeview Play | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Panel technology: LCD | Smart TV: Firefox TV OS | Curved: No | Dimensions: 1,457 x 888 x 334mm

+Fantastic HDR
+Firefox Smart OS
-Local dimming isn't perfect
-Still expensive

At over £3,000 the Panasonic TX-65DC902B's price is still firmly in enthusiast territory, but a Ultra HD Premium specification combined with a simple yet effective Smart TV interface means this set is a solid choice for more than just the initiated.

Panasonic's Honeycomb local dimming technology might not be perfect, but it's the best we're going to get until OLED panels become mainstream over the coming years – and when the technology is capable of creating highlights this bright it's hard to complain, especially when the resulting image is so vibrant.

Screen size: 65-inch | Tuner: Freeview HD | Resolution: 4K Ultra HD | Panel technology: OLED | Smart TV: webOS 3.0 | Curved: Yes | Dimensions: 1,225 x 714 x 48.9 mm
+Ground-breaking contrast 
+Spectacularly rich colours
-Various picture noise issues
-Some motion issues

While there's always been a lot of excitement around OLED technology, it seems to have reached fever pitch this year, and it's easy to see why. Having already greatly improved the performance and affordability of its OLED TVs last year, LG – the only brand currently making full ranges of OLED TVs – is claiming further substantial performance boosts and key new features for its 2016 range.

That said, the OLED55C6V is quite simply the best OLED TV yet. It looks gorgeous, particularly if curved screens are your thing, and unprecedented black levels help to deliver picture quality that is, for the most part, dazzling, as LG continues to refine its technology.

3. Samsung UE55KS9000


Screen size: 55-inch | Tuner: Twin Freeview HD | Resolution: 3840 x 2160 | Panel technology: LED Edgelit | Smart TV: Tizen | Curved: Yes | Dimensions: 713 x 1226 x 52mm
+Truly spectacular HDR pictures 
+Stunning curved design
-Curved screen is divisive
-No 3D support

After some pretty premium pricing in 2015, it's good to see Samsung being reasonably aggressive with the £2,100 cost of UE55KS9000. This doesn't seem an awful lot to ask for the level of specification, design, performance and smart TV capabilities the UE55KS9000 brings to the table, and puts it in the same ball park as the Sony 55XD9305 that's probably its closest rival.

With its sleek lines and 360-degree design the UE55KS9000 looks every inch a premium TV - a design statement it backs up with a new LCD panel created from the ground up to get the maximum impact from the new killer picture quality combination of UHD resolution and HDR. Add in a much-improved smart interface and reasonable price for what's on offer, and it looks like Samsung may be the brand to beat again at the high end of the TV market.

4. LG 65EC970V


Screen size: 65-inch | Tuner: Freeview HD | Resolution: UHD 4K | Panel technology: OLED | Smart TV: LG webOS | Curved: Yes | Dimensions: 880 x 1447 x 257mm
+Jaw-dropping design

For many home cinema fans the LG 65EC970V is a dream come true. There are many, many occasions where its combination of a native 4K UHD resolution and OLED screen technology delivers pictures more beautiful and natural than any we've ever seen before on any television.

Its webOS operating system, moreover, ensures that the 65EC970V is still easy to use despite its cutting edge nature, and its design is gorgeous.

If you're lucky enough to have six grand to spare you're faced with a stark TV choice between the LG 65EC970V and the Samsung UE65JS9500. The bottom line though is that it's another ground-breaking moment for TV picture quality.
