The five most popular TVs on which.co.uk in 2021

Part of our top five is one of the cheapest OLED TVs around – a 55-inch LG that you can use to enjoy 4K Ultra HD content

The five most popular TVs on which.co.uk in 2021

The most popular TVs on the Which? website are made by LG and Samsung, according to our latest figures.

We’ve crunched the numbers to see which of our expert product reviews have generated the most interest so far this year. The cheapest TV on our list (a 43-inch model) will set you back by around £380, while the priciest (a 55-inch OLED) sits closer to £1,000.

Below, we reveal the five most popular TVs on Which? and where you can buy them. Stock is low for some of the models we’ve selected, so consult our TV reviews if you need a second option – every review suggests alternative models, including a cheaper Best Buy.


Just because a review is popular, it doesn’t mean that model has superb picture quality and superior sound. To guarantee yourself a great TV, check out our Which? Best Buy TVs


Five popular TVs tested by Which?

This year, thousands of you have checked to see how the TVs below fared in our tough lab tests.

These models may be popular, but that doesn’t mean they’re all nailed-on Which? Best Buys. To see how each TV performs for picture quality, sound quality and ease of use, you’ll need to click through to our full product reviews.

1. LG 49NANO816NA (£799)

LG 49NANO816NA
  • Screen size: 49 inches (LCD)
  • Screen resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • Resolution type: 4K Ultra-HD

Behold, the most popular TV on our website this year. This 49-inch TV from LG makes up part of the brand’s nanocell range, which is designed to filter out colours to keep your picture looking as natural as possible.

So what makes this LG model so popular? Standing tall with a 49-inch display, it’s a decent size for the living room, plus 4K resolution will help you watch compatible content on streaming services including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. There’s also a satellite and Freeview tuner for watching free SD and HD channels.

To see if this 49-inch TV will dazzle you on movie night, head over to our full LG 49NANO816NA review.

2. LG 43UN74006LB (£399)

LG 43UN74006LB
  • Screen size: 43 inches (LCD)
  • Screen resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • Resolution type: 4K Ultra HD

This LG TV is a little smaller than our most popular TV of the year – it has a 43-inch display and sits at the lower end of LG’s 2020 line-up. The TV supports basic HDR formats (HDR10 and HLG) and you can use it to view free SD and HD channels through the aerial and satellite tuners.

The LG 43UN74006LB comes bundled with the brand’s magic remote. If you point the remote directly at your TV, a cursor pops up on screen so you can flick through menus and select your favourite TV series.

We’ve sent this 4K TV off to the Which? test lab to see if it can deliver a consistently crisp picture. See our full LG 43UN74006LB review.

3. LG 43UN73006LC (£379)

LG 43UN73006LC
  • Screen size: 43 inches (LCD)
  • Screen resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • Resolution type: 4K Ultra HD

This is the second 43-inch LG to claim a place in our top five. It’s not the most advanced TV we’ve seen – although you can watch 4K content, this model doesn’t work with Dolby Vision or HDR10+, which are used to adjust contrast levels on a scene-by-scene basis.

You can explore free SD and HD channels by tapping away on LG’s magic remote. All of your streaming apps are accessible from a bar at the bottom of the screen.

4. Samsung UE50TU8500 (£599)

Samsung UE50TU8500
  • Screen size: 50 inches (LCD)
  • Screen resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • Resolution type: 4K Ultra HD

If you’re shopping for a large TV that can keep you entertained on movie night, you may be considering this Samsung model. It has a hefty 50-inch display and is still one of the brand’s cheaper 4K LCD TVs – we sent it off to our test lab to see if it’s also one of the best.

With this being a Samsung TV, it’s powered by the Tizen operating system. Tizen swiftly loads up menus and has help text that explains the various adjustable settings.

5. LG OLED55BX6LB (£999)

LG OLED55BX6LB

  • Screen size: 55 inches (OLED)
  • Screen resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • Resolution type: 4K Ultra HD

This 55-inch TV from LG doesn’t come cheap, yet it’s still one of the most searched for models on our website. It sits within LG’s most affordable OLED range and supports three HDR formats, including Dolby Vision. This tech is used to adjust contrast levels depending on what you’re watching which, in theory, should prevent content from appearing too dark or too bright.

Typing using the on-screen keyboard can be tedious at times, so you may want to use voice control to search for that new series you’ve been desperate to binge.

Is the largest TV on our list the best of the bunch? Our LG OLED55BX6LB review reveals all. 

TVs selected based on page views on which.co.uk from 1 January 2021 to 10 June 2021.
