I am needing to upgrade m 50in Samsung tv. I’ve seen a few posts about the 4K TVs but getting confused when ppl say it’s not a proper 4K.
Could anyone recommend a good tv above 50in possibly a 55in or 60in with a max budget of £800, also needs to be a smart TV
thank you

If you want 4k then get HDR - that is the proper 4k, anything else is lower quality.

HDR and 4K are completely different, they don't even affect the same area of the picture. HDR is a bigger technology but it's one with different degrees of support instead of yes/no like 4K.

It's not currently a big factor at £800 as support is fairly minimal in that price range. You'd have to nearly double your budget to get an above-50" with significant levels of HDR ability.

Back on topic, what are you unhappy with on your current TV that you feel it needs replacing?

ive just had it a fair few year and other day the sound was playing up. the sound has never been that good, I have to have it turned up during in the evening and sometimes I still struggle to hear it.
I have a 50in Samsung full HD plasma and had it since about 2009/10
I just keep seeing these good deals on new tv, I thought I may treat myself
Sound is an area where current TVs are weak as well, if that's the main downside to your current model I'd treat yourself to a nice set of speakers or a soundbar.

Now isn't a brilliant time to buy an £800 TV as we've got some interesting technologies coming down in price over the next few years like HDR and OLED. They should make a real improvement to picture quality unlike the last few attempts (3D, Curved, 4K etc.)
