OLED, 4K, 8K and Beyond: Meet Abt’s Best TVs of 2022

Whether you’re a family that subscribes to every streaming service or just prefer having a basic cable package to watch local news, you’re going to need a high-quality TV screen. That’s why we’ve assembled some of Abt’s best TVs of 2022 below. Keep in mind that the televisions you’ll find today aren’t exactly like the ones you’d see on shelves ten or even five years ago, so you might need to brush up on your knowledge. Check out our Television Buying Guide for a deep dive into behind-the-screen details.
Note: We use the 65" model of every product below based on its popularity, though they come in a variety of sizes to fit your lifestyle and needs.

Best TVs of 2022: Best 4K Television

LG 65" NanoCell 90 Series 4K HDR Smart TV With AI ThinQ (2021) - 65NANO90UPA

4.5 out of 5 stars
Contains 2992 Reviews
LG 65" NanoCell 90 Series 4K HDR Smart TV With AI ThinQ (2021) - 65NANO90UPA
If you’re stuck in the world of high definition, let one of the greatest 4K models welcome you to the realm of UHD. This LED masterpiece is designed with every aspect of the viewing experience in mind: a fully-dimmed array to bring in ultra-dark black hues beside vibrant color, Dolby Vision IQ & Atmos capability, HDR gaming capabilities and (most importantly) ThinQ AI. The advanced processors run at lighting speed to upscale content the second you watch it. That means that HD content is brought up to near-4K quality automatically. Meanwhile, LG ThinQ AI is performing dozens of background tasks, like keeping integrated voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant ready to respond to any command. If you lose the remote, simply pause the Ultra-HD movie with your voice.

Best TVs of 2022: Best OLED Television

Sony 65" BRAVIA XR A80J 4K HDR OLED TV - XR65A80J

Sony 65" BRAVIA XR A80J 4K HDR OLED TV - XR65A80J
While some consider 4K the new standard in resolution, OLED technology is another buzzword in the world of screens. The Sony A80J 65" astounds with both, offering visually stunning beauty and smart technology. That’s all thanks to the Cognitive Processor XR and the refined OLED screen. The processor works to sharpen and refine content as you watch; you’ll be able to see every touchdown dance, every glam shot and every superhero pose in all of its 4K glory. And it doesn’t stop at upscaling HD content, either—see old black and white classics made new again in upscaled quality. Meanwhile, the OLED technology boosts color contrast beyond standard LED means. With the ability to control each pixel individually, you’ll see ultra-dark blacks beside vivid greens and whites. Other exciting smart features include advanced sound positioning and voice control via Google Assistant. Pair with a Sony soundbar for the complete home entertainment experience.

Best TVs of 2022: Best 8K Television

Samsung 65" QN900A Neo Black QLED 8K Smart TV (2021) - QN65QN900AFXZA

Samsung 65" QN900A Neo Black QLED 8K Smart TV (2021) - QN65QN900AFXZA
While UHD may seem to have become the new standard (if an incredible one), 8K resolution goes beyond that of 4K, giving these screens a full16 times the pixels of a standard 1080p HDTV. But the Samsung QN900A goes even further with a QLED screen that offers unparalleled color vibrance. The layer of Quantum Dots that lights up the screen helps to show every image in its truest-to-life hue, making nature documentaries real. Bright blues and greens shine out from your higher-than-high definition screen while smart technology keeps every image refined. The Neo Quantum Processor works to upscale what you watch in real-time, shifting everything to near-8K quality as you watch. And with a bezel that’s barely there, you’ll find yourself sinking into your favorite movies and shows. Pair with certain Samsung soundbars to enjoy a Q-Symphony sonic experience, where noise, music and effects come from both the TV speakers and the sonic device.

Keep in mind that all Ultra-HD QLED watching experiences don’t have to take place indoors. Bring the party outside with Samsung’s The Terrace. This optimized outdoor screen is designed to weather it all, from high-sun exposure to extreme temperatures. Glare is reduced no matter what patio seat you and your friends sit in to watch the biggest games of the season, while Quantum Dot technology still pulls in a full array of 100% color volume. Watch as touchdowns soar toward the end zone and cheer as your QB completes their touchdown dance. Alternatively, dedicate this space to outdoor family movie nights—thanks to the smart TV capabilities, you’ll be able to stream from any of your subscriptions. Bring out the popcorn and blankets; some of the kids might be falling asleep out here on late summer nights.
