When you buy a new TV, the software that makes a smart TV is pretty important, and some of the Best TVs we've tested and reviewed are powered by Google. The best Google TVs - and we'll include the best Android smart TVs in that category - give you tons of apps and services, some of the best smart home features you'll ever need. 

Here are the best Google TVs of 2022.


Top picks

  1. Hisense 40-Inch 40H5500F

The Hisense Android TV is our favorite Hisense model and one of the best Android TVs available today. With quantum dot color, Chromecast, and Google Assistant built-in, it's a full-featured smart TV that offers great quality for a reasonable price. With support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10, it also offers solid HDR format support, along with Dolby Atmos audio. 

It features built-in voice control with an in-room microphone, effectively allowing you to use your TV as a smart speaker, and offering the kind of integration and smart home control that would normally be much more expensive. 

  1. Sony Bravia XR A80J OLED

If you want impeccable quality and next-gen capability, we love the Sony Bravia XR A80J. This 4K OLED display introduces Google TV, the best upgrade to smart TV software we've seen in a long time. 

But it's also completely packed with other futuristic technologies: HDR, 120 Hz refresh rate, ATSC 3.0 tuner, Google TV, Sony's own Bravia Core streaming service, Acoustic Surface Audio technology … the list goes on. Sure, not everyone needs everything here, but it's nice to have the option.

  1. TCL 4-Series Android TV (S434)

That means great color quality, solid (if basic) HDR support, and game-ready capabilities are exactly what they get on the S434. 

But this model gives you another option beyond Roku, with Android TV offering a wide selection of apps through the Google Play store, built-in Google Chromecast, and Google Assistant for easy content search and voice control. And Android TV has a great interface that comes packed with features. The only thing you won't get with the TCL 4-Series Android TV is the 85-inch screen option.

Buying Guide

Size: The suggestions above include great options in 55, 65, and even 75-inch sizes, so your budget doesn't have to stop you from getting a TV as big as you want it to be.

HDR: For the best images, we recommend purchasing a kit that supports a high dynamic range (HDR). HDR10 is the base standard, while Dolby Vision is a higher capacity format, and we recommend choosing Dolby Vision support when available.

Ports: We recommend buying a TV with 4 HDMI ports whenever possible. And even though they cost more, we still prefer TVs with HDMI 2.1 connectivity. They offer better gaming features and will keep your TV up to date for even longer.


Final Thoughts

With the change from Android TV to Google TV, Google-powered smart TVs have had a significant upgrade. With improved navigation, better content discovery and recommendations, and the ability to add shows to your watch list and control your TV from your phone, the Best Google TVs makes for a smart TV platform that was already great. We already love Android TV, but Google TV is simply better.
