Hisense H9G TV Review

Check the Price on Amazon

The Hisense H9G is a decent television with outstanding overall performance. It is a good improvement over its predecessor, the Hisense H9F. It has an impressive contrast ratio, a full-array local dimming feature that makes the television show extremely deep blacks, and remarkable black uniformity.

HDR content still looks very good, as it’s getting bright enough to enable pop highlights. Unfortunately, it has narrow viewing angles as are required from a VA panel TV, and while it has a 120Hz panel, it does not display 120Hz signals properly. It also has mediocre color accuracy out of the box, so you may need to have it adjusted to experience it to the fullest.

Although it does not support any variable refresh rate (VRR) technology, gamers can enjoy the incredibly quick response time and very low input lag that this TV offers. Last and not last, it does very well in bright rooms because it gets bright enough to battle glare and has excellent handling of the glare.

PROS

  • Outstanding contrast ratio.
  • Makes highlights pop in HDR.
  • Amazing response time.
  • Excellent reflection handling.

CONS

  • Narrow viewing angles.
  • No VRR support.

Design:

 

The Hisense H9 G has a good, simple design, very similar to the Hisense H9F from 2019, except that the back has a textured finish. Hisense added tracks to the back wall, and clips to the cable management stand. The stand has a unique design and is an overall simple-looking TV with thin metal bezels that looks good in any setup.

The metal stand is a bit bigger than the stand on the Hisense H9F, but it has the same shape. The stand is solid and the TV doesn’t wobble much. ] Footprint of the 65″ stand: 35.2″ x 13.4″.

The Hisense H9 G is of high-quality design. The plastic on the back is solid, with not much flex except at the inputs, where the plastic bends that little bit more. The border around the display is metal and gives it a more premium look. The Screen is solid overall, and that there are no issues.

Picture quality:

Movies: Hisense H9 G is the best TV for watching movies. It has an excellent contrast ratio, and it shows extremely deep blacks with the local dimming feature allowed. It upscales content of lower quality without any problems and can remove a judge from any source, such as mobile apps or Blu-ray players. Sadly, the lower-frame rate content appears to stutter because of the TV’s fast response time.

TV Shows: The Hisense H9 G is good television for viewing television programs. It gets incredibly light and it has outstanding control of the reflection, but even in the brightest of rooms, it performs well. Unfortunately, it has narrow viewing angles, but watching your first show with the whole family isn’t ideal. It upscales 720p and 1080p content well on the upside, and a tonne of apps are available for download from the Google Play Store.

Sports: The Hisense H9 G is the perfect TV for sports-watching. It’s got an impressive response time so fast-moving content looks fantastic. If you watch sports in a bright space, it can quickly get bright enough to fight glare and it will have outstanding handling of reflection. It also upscales the 720p content without any problems, such as from cable boxes. Unfortunately, it is not suggested to watch the big game with a wide group of friends, so it has narrow viewing angles.

Video Games: Fantastic TV for playing for gaming. The Hisense H9 G has an extremely low input lag, excellent response time, and a Black Frame Insertion to clear up motion blur. Unfortunately, it has not many additional gaming features, such as support for VRR. It’s a great choice for dark-room games too because it has an amazing contrast ratio and impressive black uniformity.

HDR Movies: The Hisense H9 G is great for viewing HDR movies. It offers support for HDR10, HDR10 +, and Dolby Vision. It shows a wide range of colors for the content of HDR it becomes bright enough to pull out real highlights. Dark-room viewing is fantastic, as it has a high native contrast ratio and local dimming in full range to produce deep blacks. Sadly, content with a lower frame rate tends to stutter due to its fast response time.

HDR Gaming: The Hisense H9 G is the perfect TV for gaming on HDR. It has a low input lag, quick response time, and HDR content looks fantastic when it’s getting bright enough to really bring out highlights. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a lot of game functionality including support for VRR. But due to its excellent contrast ratio, it can show extremely deep blacks.

PC Monitor: The Hisense H9 G is a decent PC monitor to use as well. It has a low input lag and displays proper 4:4:4 chroma, which is critical for text reading. Sadly, it has narrow viewing angles because if you sit too close, the edges of the screen can look darker. On the contrary, the use of bright rooms is a perfect idea as it gets bright enough to battle glare and it has outstanding handling of reflection.

Sound Quality:

The Hisense 65H9 G has a good frequency response and is a significant upgrade over the Hisense H9F. It gets really loud and has a well-balanced sound profile which is perfect for listening to dialogue. Unfortunately, with no rumble or thump, it may create a deep bass. At moderate listening levels there is a degree of audible total harmonic distortion, and it becomes more noticeable at its max volume.

Smart features:

This TV enables the use of Android TV as its smart OS. Usability is fairly easy and smooth. Android TV’s Google Play Store offers a massive selection of apps available to download. The Hisense H9 G has the same remote as the Hisense H9F and the Hisense H8G. It has easy access buttons to popular streaming platforms, and a built-in microphone for voice control through Google Assistant is available.

Final Thoughts

The Hisense H9 G is an outstanding television set overall. It’s well-rounded and delivers excellent results for most apps. It’s an excellent choice to watch movies in the dark, as it has an incredible contrast ratio and a great local full-array dimming feature. HDR content looks fantastic when it gets bright enough to bring out highlights and shows a wide range of colors. Gamers can also enjoy the really fast response time and the very low input lag. Unfortunately because of its limited viewing angles, it is not suggested for wide seating arrangements.
