Comparison televisions with a screen size  55 inches

For North America, more models are offered than TVs with a smaller screen size. This category includes TVs with OLED screens (production of LG matrices) or TVs with QLED screens from Samsung. OLED TVs are much more expensive than TVs with LED screens, but this is because of the high cost of producing screens.

Conditionally TVs are divided into 4 categories by rating.

The rating was made on the basis of technical characteristics of TVs, without taking into account the cost. Note that Sony offers few TV models, but their offerings with a higher cost, show quite good technical parameters.

LG and Samsung represent more models of TVs, but in spite of such diversity, there are actually fewer models, but to increase the number of offers, software restrictions can be introduced.
