Hisense H50N6800 – Features
On the smart TV front, this Hisense uses a proprietary operating system called VIDAA U. It’s an interface based on big tiles, and it’s clean and easy to navigate – not unlike the pop-up launcher bar used by LG and Samsung. App support includes Netflix and Amazon (both in 4K and HDR) along with BBC iPlayer and YouTube. There was no sign of the other UK catch-up apps, such as ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5.
As for the display tech, it has a 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840 × 2160 pixels). It is compatible with high dynamic range – just good old commonplace HDR10, none of the other fancy formats such as Dolby Vision or Hybrid Log-Gamma.
This is an edge-lit LED LCD panel, and Hisense claims a peak brightness of 450 nits. That’s quite far off the 1000 nits required for a UHD Premium sticker, but Hisense has a trick up its sleeve when it comes to punching above its weight.
That trick is ULED, Hisense’s proprietary tech that uses small crystals for improved backlight control. The idea is to give its LCD performance a boost by adding the lighting precision associated with OLED tech, which has pixels that turn off and on individually. Basically, fancy lighting but still LCD.
Hisense H50N6800 – Performance
ULED achieves what it’s supposed to do. The lighting uniformity here is better than on some more expensive TVs I’ve tested. I had a hard time spotting clouding and haloing. Bright areas placed right next to dark areas demonstrated a surprising lack of bleeding. That certainly helps to improve the picture’s contrast, as deeper blacks and cleaner highlights make for more visual punch.Sadly the HDR performance falls elsewhere. I suspect one reason for the good lighting uniformity is the TV’s peak brightness, which never gets high enough to challenge the TV’s dimming tech. It’s never that bright, but more importantly it struggles to deal with highlights – there is quite a lot of clipping in the brightest areas.Colours also look a bit exaggerated. You certainly get the extra punch you’re supposed to get with high dynamic range, but you don’t get any of the subtlety. Play Planet Earth 2 on 4K Blu-ray and an eagle’s beak looks unnaturally orange. Stream The Grand Tour on Amazon and a red Mustang looks a little pink. Colours aren’t very well blended either, so subtle gradients are lost.It’s also a bit too enthusiastic in its sharpness. Details look a bit blunt, and fine animal fur on the 4K Blu-ray of Planet Earth 2 ends up looking quite coarse. You might want to turn the noise reduction on, even if this leaves the image a little softer overall. I should stress, these issues really only apply to 4K and HDR. HD and standard dynamic range content is a lot better, as they don’t push the TV to its limits.For gamers worried about latency, input lag comes in at about 31ms in gaming mode. That’s not the best figure I’ve seen on a TV, but it’s respectable.
