Best TVs on Amazon Buying Guide: Welcome to What Hi-Fi?'s round-up of the best TVs you can buy on Amazon in 2022.
As one of the biggest e-tailers in the world, Amazon sells just about everything – and that includes TVs. But with so many models on offer it can be tricky to sort the televisual treats from the TV also-rans – especially with so many deals swirling around. To help you make the right choice, we've compiled this handy list of the very best TVs on Amazon.
How to choose the best TV on Amazon
We've reviewed all of the TVs below, so you're guaranteed they are all great sets at their size and price point. Prime members (opens in new tab) get free one-day delivery on many of them (here's a 30-day free Prime trial (opens in new tab), if you're not already a member) .
You'll find TVs of various sizes, budgets and technologies, from 55-inch TVs to OLED TVs, small TVs to cheap TVs, and even 8K TVs. If gaming is your priority, you'll want to choose a set with HDMI 2.1 and support for VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). Take a look at our round-up of the best gaming TVs you can buy, which goes into extra detail on game-specific features to look out for.
Bigger is usually better, if you budget stretches that far. But it's worth remembering that you'll need enough room to sit far enough back to enjoy the spectacle. If picture quality is a priority, it's worth checking if your chosen TV supports high-end HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10+, or both). And if the biggest TV isn't quite big enough, check out our list of the best projectors.
So, without further ado, here are the best TVs on Amazon...

This 48-inch Philips OLED, which is currently on sale at Amazon UK only, delivers genuine flagship performance at a respectable price. It's also a convenient size and sure to fit in most spaces.
It takes more effort than most to find the best picture settings, but with a bit of tweaking the OLED806 can be made to look both very accurate and supremely sharp and punchy. The performance is further enhanced by the four-sided Ambilight technology, which extends the onscreen action to the wall around the TV in the form of coloured light.
Unlike LG and Sony sets, this Philips supports both the Dolby Vision and HDR10+ dynamic HDR standards. If gaming features are important to you, the OLED806 is fully stocked with two 48Gbps HDMI 2.1 ports with support for VRR, ALLM and 4K@120Hz.
In short, this is the best TV on Amazon right now – if you're in the UK. US buyer should check out the stunning Sony OLED TV below.

This Sony OLED offers most of what makes the flagship A90J (a places below) great, but at a more competitive price. Indeed, this outstanding pound-for-pound performance earned the A80J a 2021 What Hi-Fi? Award.
It might not be quite as bright and punchy as its flagship sibling, or as sonically weighty, but it's a remarkably crisp, detailed and dynamic performer for the money, with a superior sound system to those of its price rivals.
Hardcore gamers will still be better served by the LG C1 (also below), but if your priorities are movies and TV shows, the A80J is the sweet spot. Simply put, it’s one of the very best TVs on Amazon.
We've tested the A80J in its 55-inch size. Amazon also sells the 65-inch and 77-inch models. We've not yet reviewed those bigger sizes but you'll find the latest, lowest prices available for each version below.

Samsung's 8-series has traditionally been positioned just below the company’s glamorous range-topping QLEDs. In the past, it has proven to be the sweet spot where picture quality and price intersect to maximum effect. And so it proves once more.
The TU8000 is astonishingly good value. For comparatively very little money you're getting a 55-inch TV that performs brilliantly, particularly with HDR content, and boasts the best, most app-laden operating system available at any price.
It's sound is only so-so and it's lacking the outright brightness and next-gen HDMI features of its premium siblings, but it's still undeniably brilliant for the money and one of the best TVs on Amazon right now.

LG’s C-series model has been the go-to pick of its OLED range for several years, offering the company's best picture processing tech at an affordable price. The 2021 C1 is a small upgrade on the 2020 CX, but there wasn’t much that needed improving.
Picture performance and features are top notch, and LG has thrown in it's latest Cinematic Movement motion processing for good measure. You also get a better menu system and a more complete app selection (all UK catch-up apps are present).
The 2021 LG G1 offers a sharper picture than the C1, but we're not talking huge margins. For our money, the C1 is the ultimate in performance-per-pound terms. LG has announced its successor, the C2, which is due out in 2022. For now, the C1 is not just one of the best TVs on Amazon, it's one of the most recommendable TVs on the market.
We tested the C1 in its 65-inch size, but it's also available as a 48-inch, 55-inch, 77-inch and 83-inch model.

In performance terms, the Sony A90J is an absolute stunner. It takes OLED picture performance to new, thrilling levels while maintaining the authenticity for which Sony is justifiably renowned. It also sounds significantly better than all of the other TVs you might be considering and the user interface is good, too.
This model is missing UK catch-up apps (not for much longer, though) and hardcore, next-gen gamers might want to wait for the latest VRR update to iron out a handful of 4K@120Hz wrinkles.
But if movies and TV shows are your priority, and you have the budget, the Sony A90J is among the best TVs on Amazon – and the best TVs we've tested. It’s pricey, but it’s also a clear cut above the competition. Do check out the Award-winning A80J at the top of this before handing over your money, though, as it offers much of (but not all) the A90J's excellence at a significantly lower price.
We've tested the A90J in its 55-inch and 65-inch sizes. It's also available as an 83-inch model, which we've not yet reviewed. You'll see the latest, lowest prices available for each version below.

Samsung’s first range of Neo QLED TVs went down a storm. The extra-fine level of lighting control that mini LED brings to the table has put LCD’s high peak brightness to sophisticated use. Contrast is exceptional.
The QN90A was Samsung’s top 4K TV for 2021, but it still has plenty to offer buyers in 2022. It's practically bursting with features as well as raw performance power. From next-generation gaming potential to a full suite of apps and services, it’s still ready to impress.
Picture quality is compelling and the sound isn’t bad for a TV. A Sony or LG OLED might look better in some scenes, but there’s something quite addictive about the brightness of this set. Its super-contrasty and punchy HDR delivery is ever so more-ish.
There’s still no Dolby Vision support but you’ll be getting so much from HDR10 alone that it will hardly be on your mind. A great TV and a terrific buy at Amazon.

The G1 boasts LG's OLED 'Evo' display, hence why it takes the picture performance of the C1 and improves upon it in almost every way, particularly in terms of brightness, sharpness and detail.
The G1 is also packed with apps and next-gen HDMI features, including 4K@120Hz on all four sockets. Another key feature of the G1 is its design. It's part of LG's 'Gallery' series of TV, meaning it's ultra-slim and primarily designed to be wall-mounted like a piece of art (you don't even get stand or feet in the box).
Sound quality isn't particularly strong impressive, but if you are planning to combine your new TV with a separate sound system, and the design suits your needs, the G1 should be seriously considered.
LG has unveiled a replacement, the G2, which is due out in 2022. We tested the G1 in its 65-inch size but it's also available as a 55-inch and 77-inch model at Amazon.

Samsung has combines its Mini LED tech with its existing Quantum Dot tech to create a range of premium TVs that it calls Neo QLEDs. The QE65QN95A is Samsung's flagship 4K set for 2021, and doesn't disappoint.
In real-world performance terms, Mini LED might not quite be the revolution that Samsung is pitching it as, but it is still a substantial upgrade to an already excellent range of TVs. The overall contrast offered is staggering, and the QN95A combines near-OLED black levels with awesomely crisp white highlights and fabulously vibrant colours, all while retaining an effortless sense of naturalism.
Throw in the best, most app-packed operating system in the business, a delightfully slim design and a full set of next-gen HDMI sockets and this is (a lack of Dolby Vision support aside) as complete a package as can be imagined.
We tested the QN95A in its 65-inch size. It's also available as a 55-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch model.

Available on Amazon UK only, the 55OLED805 is a Philips OLED as it should be; genuinely excellent. If you’re prepared to forego the odd next-gen feature, it's the best performance-per-pound OLED you can currently buy.
It produces stunningly crisp and detailed pictures from all sources, delivers far more accomplished audio than most rivals, adds awesome Ambilight (which extends the onscreen action onto the wall around the TV in the form of coloured light) to the mix, and has a lower price tag than its LG, Sony, Panasonic and Samsung equivalents.

The Samsung QE75QN900A is a 75-inch version of Samsung’s third generation of 8K TVs, but the first to be backed by a Mini LED lighting system. As the name suggests, Mini LEDs are much smaller than standard LEDs, the size of glitter in your hand, and numbering in the thousands, rather than the hundreds, on your TV panel.
The result? More granular backlight control and crisper definition. Sadly there isn't really any 8K content to speak but this excellent TV upscales 4K content to 8K. It delivers an awesome sense of scale but with the sort of sharpness and detail that we’d normally associate with a smaller 4K set.
All told, if you're going really big with your next TV, the 2021 QN900A could be a good option. Especially it you can get it at a discounted price.
We tested the QN900A in its 75-inch size. It's also available as a 65-inch and 85-inch model. We've not yet reviewed these versions but you'll see the latest, lowest prices below.

This is one of the cheapest Samsung 4K TV that Amazon offers. But fear not, it still boasts Samsung's core performance and feature set, at a smaller size and a lower price. In short, it's pretty much the best cheap TV you can buy.
Most 43in TVs offer about a tenth of the features of a bigger set, but not this one. The Tizen operating system is identical to that found on pricier sets, with the same winning UI and stacked app selection. It's 4K, naturally, HDR formats are well catered for (with the exception of Dolby Vision, which no Samsung sets support), and it supports Auto Low Latency Mode, which switches the TV to game mode when it detects a gaming signal. That's a feature missing from many much pricier sets, such as the 48in Sony in the top spot on this list.
The contrast ratio isn't as impressive as an OLED or QLED TV, of course, but that's to be expected. The blacks are actually surprisingly deep for a TV this affordable, and there's a hefty amount of punch. The TU7100 is a sharp and detailed performer, too, and it handles motion with a good balance of smoothing and authenticity. It's an excellent picture performance for a TV of this size, and you'd have to spend a fair bit more to get a significant improvement.
