The 55A6G is a 55 inch 4K TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next most important spec of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV features amassive 55 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the TV can produce.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.
It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Other than color accuracy, the static contrast of a TV also impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio
A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look dusty as shown in the below image.
As you see, this will rob your experience considerably.
Static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, thus lesser detail overall.
Hisense did not state a static contrast specification for this TV. Once again we have to take a guess. FYI — IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Now, for a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of Hisense 55A6G to be on the upper side, that is atleast 1200:1.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED backlight.
If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But as this is not a cheap TV from Hisense, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.
Understanding Input lag and response time
This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 200 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.
The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 48.54 inches and 30.43 inches respectively.
In terms of thickness, it is just 2.91 inches thick. Overall this TV weighs approximately 11.5 Kgs including its stand. Without stand, it weighs 11.3 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.
