So many brands of Smart TV and so many models in the market, see until blur...

 

Some recommend only buy LG and Samsung, one salesman swear by Sony, another one say Phillips better, the more I listen, the more confused I get...

 

If looking for an under $1500 55" Smart 4k LED TV (whether with inbuilt Android or not), what do you guys recommend? TIA

Go to Gain City, Harvey or Courts to do comparison.

TV now so cheap. Not bad is not good enough.

I recommend the 55" UJ632T, slightly above your budget, but is worth considering. Try LG magic stick and compared it with other brands' remote controllers.

 

You should compare the prices between Audio house, Best Denki, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Courts, Parisilk and Mega Discount Store.

This is the problem, 55" UHD LG model UJ632T selling $1629, 55" Phillips model PUT6102 selling only $998, both TVs to the naked eye I won't say the difference is huge. Phillips processing speed is 500hz while korean brands at that price is running at only 100hz with the former selling more than $600 cheaper than the korean brands. If the higher price is just paying for branding more than performance, I will rather go for cheaper and higher performance model, unless of course there is something about the reliability of Phillips I do not know, in comparison to Samsung and LG.

For TV, I also check where is the TV made. Many TV, many Japanese brand now have some models are made elsewhere. For example Panasonic have models that is made in malaysia. Sharp some models that are made in China.

 

LG & Samsung are both made in Korea though

I also swear by Sony. The color sibei swee.

but expensive.

I use this link as reference.

Compare the top of the line, Sony is ~3x more ex than LG. I can live with the 2nd brand.

Btw, heard that they are using LG OLED panel. IphoneX also use LG panel.
