Philips 48OLED806 48in 4K smart TV

Philips 48OLED806 48in 4K smart TV

This TV is among the world’s best, according to What Hi-Fi?. The 48in version hits the sweet spot between size and affordability, but this model is also available in 55in, 65in and 77in. The ultra HD 4K display is bright but natural, and the HDR10+ tech means it adjusts to the surrounding ambient light to deliver the best possible picture. A fantastic all-rounder and – thanks to the Black Friday sales bonanza – it’s now available for less than £1,000.

Samsung UE43AU7100 43in 4K smart TV

For buyers on tighter budgets, this 43in alternative from Samsung is a much-praised option. The TV provides all the 4K goodness of pricier models, along with an excellent user interface and smart features that allow you to customise and get the most from your viewing experiences.

Samsung QE75QN900A 75in 8K Smart TV

Looking to blow the budget this Black Friday? For £6,000, you can get this spectacular 75in 8K set that What Hi-Fi’s five-star review described as “the next class of big screen entertainment”, with an “awesome sense of scale and crispness”. The spec-sheet is almost as dazzling as the picture and sound, and for a limited time, John Lewis is throwing in a free Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphone that usually retails for around £1,000.

LG OLED55C14LB 55in 4K Smart TV

If you’re a frequent gamer, it’s worth having the TV hardware to match the power of your next-generaton console. GamesRadar has rated LG’s OLED C1 series as the best gaming TV on the market, and John Lewis currently has a discount on the 55in model. In addition to the regular 4K display, there’s a dedicated Game Optimizer that helps with smooth motion handling and frame merging.

Samsung Q60A 50-inch QLED 4K

Samsung Q60A 50in QLED 4K

For sports fans, this Samsung set is heralded as a fantastic option. The Quantum HDR display packs in 50in of vibrant colour and pitch-perfect detail, with a Multi-View feature that allows users to watch two simultaneous video feeds at the same time – handy when trying to keep up with multiple games. Since Samsung has one of the easiest-to-navigate menu systems, finding different streaming apps is a doddle too. And this Black Friday offer makes this great-value model even more of a bargain.

TCL 43RP620K 43-inch Roku 4K TV

TCL 43RP620K 43in Roku 4K TV

Choosing a cheaper option doesn't always have to mean scrimping on quality. Currys is offering a 43in 4K display with Dolby Vision display technology and in-built Wi-Fi, Freeview and Alexa compatibility for less than £300. And Chinese manufacturer TCL has also teamed up with Roku to pack in a whole host of extra TV apps, including Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus, and many more.
