Main Popular TV Platforms in 2017

#Best Smart TV with Android TV

Best Recommendation: Sony Bravia XBR-X900E Series (XE90 in the UK)

Overview: If you’ve never used it before, Android TV is organized into tiers, of which the upper-most is tutorials and ads (the sort of stuff you really don’t need to see that often). This is followed by rows of apps, games, inputs and settings. Overall, the Sony X900E is a great HDR TV that occupies a sweet spot between performance and price. UHD image clarity is excellent, color performance luscious and its HDR delivery adds just the right level of zing. 

#Best Smart TV with My Home Screen 2.0

Best Recommendation: Panasonic TX-65EZ1002 OLED TV (UK only)

Overview: The 65EZ1002’s smart TV system is pretty to look at, easy to use, and effortless to customise – everything, in other words, that a smart TV interface ought to be. It’s worth adding that since the 65EZ1002 uses Freeview Play to provide its broadcaster catch-up TV services, you can search for shows you’ve missed via an intuitive electronic programme guide that scrolls back as far as seven days.

#Best Smart TV with Tizen

Best Recommendation: Samsung Q9F QLED TV

Overview: It’s taken awhile to get there, but Samsung can now claim a really strong smart TV engine with its latest ‘Eden’ interface. For starters, it manages to deliver swift and logical access to a healthy amount of content from a home screen that takes over impressively little of your screen real estate. 

#Best Smart TV with webOS 3.5

Best Recommendation: LG OLED C7

Overview: It’s graphically rich, incredibly straightforward and logical in its layout, easily customizable, slick to navigate and sensibly focussed on the sort of TV-centric apps most users actually want a TV to deliver. The latest version of webOS built into the OLED55C7 only really delivers a couple of relatively minor enhancements over previous versions: support for ‘360’ VR clips navigated by waving LG’s magic remote control around.

#Best Smart TV with Roku TV

Best Recommendation: TCL P-Series 55P607

Overview: Overall, Roku TV is simple, efficient and straightforward enough for most people to pick up and use without a problem. New for platform in 2017 is the ability to label inputs (labeling one input as Xbox or DVD Player instead of Input 1, etc…), some additional smartphone features and, for the first time, Dolby Vision support. Dolby Vision allows you to get the absolute most from the TV in terms of performance and while tracking down Dolby Vision content is a bit of a hassle, Roku does a good job highlighting all the available content in a new row in the 4K UHD Spotlight app.
