See how the man above is pleased to be using just his voice to control his TV. No more snooping around overly dense remote controls to peck at the button you need. No more wondering what the ‘back’ button is when you press the wrong thing. This could be you, this could be.
You can get the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K for £22.99 now instead of £49.99. Plug this add-on into your TV’s HDMI port and it gives you a really sleek interface with instant access to all the big streaming services and pretty much all the less big (but much loved) ones. And you can use your voice to find what you want – in fact, since it’s powered by Alexa, you can also use your voice to do all sorts of other things, including triggering your smart lights. for example.
If you have an older TV where the smart part is cutting more, but you don’t want to spend on an all-new TV, then this affordable upgrade is what you need. It can handle 4K HDR video, supporting Dolby Vision and HDR10+.
If you want that 50-inch sweet spot for an even cheaper price than the Samsung QN90A below, we can introduce you to another Samsung option. The AU9000 is Samsung’s next-gen TV from 2021 that doesn’t include its more expensive QLED technology, so it’s really geared towards balancing quality for a low price.
You can get the Samsung 50-inch AU9000 for just £429 (down from £599) on Amazon. It’s an excellent quality TV for the price, as we said in our four-and-a-half-star review – it’s great with 4K content, offers impressively uniform contrast across the entire screen (which isn’t given with cheaper TVs), and has a good smart TV software packed with useful streaming services.
It’s not as shiny as the more expensive options, but for the price it’s competitive in every way. If you don’t bother putting all the fancy technology on your TV and want great value for money, this is enough.
I’ll be honest – I almost bought this TV despite having a new OLED from just a year ago.
A Samsung QLED for under £600? That’s a deal and a half – it sure isn’t the perfect set (there’s no support for Dolby Vision, but that doesn’t matter to many people) and the image quality for this price is brilliant.
Our review sells better than me: “this TV is thinner, brighter, and bolder than previous high-end LCD TVs, delivering high peak brightness and fantastic contrast.”
OK – you know what to do. It’s the second day of Prime Day and we have a much of popular TVs to tell you.
I was about to say we should cut to the chase, but that sounds rude. How are you? Did you sleep well? This is cool. Good Zzz’s are really important for mental and physical health.
Now that that’s done, let’s talk about how you can save loads on a big old TV.
