The Best 4K TVs For Xbox Series X: What Should You Be Looking For?

Getting your head around everything a TV is or isn't capable of these days can be quite the undertaking at first – don't worry, we've been all there. Below, we've taken a look at the TV features that are most important to keep an eye out for if you're hoping to get the most out of your Xbox Series X.

  • 4K resolution - Also known as Ultra HD (or UHD), 4K resolution is the industry's next natural step up from 1080p (what is known as Full HD). A 4K resolution display has a pixel count of 3840 x 2160, giving you an incredibly sharp picture. 4K is the new standard for games on Xbox Series X, so a 4K TV is a must.
  • HDR or High Dynamic Range is another important feature as it improves the quality of your TV's pixels and can help them appear much brighter or much darker, offering greater contrast and a stunning image. We recommend that you look for a TV with HDR10 support.
  • 120 frames-per-second is now possible with select games on Xbox Series X, but you'll need a TV with 120Hz support to activate this. Furthermore, if you want to play games at 4K resolution at 120Hz, you must also purchase a 4K TV with HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz support. Microsoft supplies an Ultra High-Speed 2.1 HDMI cable inside the Xbox Series X packaging for use with next-gen games that support 4K, 120Hz.
  • Variable refresh rate is separate from the typical chatter of gaming frame rates. Commonly referred to as VRR, it is a new feature that allows the Xbox Series X and TV to communicate and adjust refresh rates on the fly.
  • Input latency is also very important when choosing the right 4K TV for gaming purposes. This is the time it takes for your button press to be accepted by the console and then sent to the TV for display, so you want this particular statistic to be as small as possible.

The Best 4K TVs For Xbox Series X: Our Recommendations

Taking all this into account, here are the 4K TVs we recommend for the best gaming experience with your Xbox Series X. We've included options to suit all budgets.

High-Budget: The Best That Money Can Buy

Our first set of TVs are absolutely perfect for those who have a strong budget and are wanting to experience the very, very best their new Xbox Series X can offer. You really can't go wrong with these options...

LG OLED C2 and C1 TVs

We start with the absolute best of the very best. LG's range of OLED televisions include absolutely every feature you could possibly want for gaming on your Xbox Series X. With four HDMI 2.1 ports and support for 120Hz in the latest models, you'll be able to run capable titles at 120 frames-per-second. 4K is correct and present, and so is HDR10 — there's even variable refresh rate support. The OLED panel also dramatically improves image quality and colours across the board, making it the true differentiator when compared to any other TV on this list. If money isn't a problem, you won't be able to do better than the latest and greatest from LG.

The C2 is the latest model, if you're looking for the latest kid on the block, but consider stepping down to last year's C1 if you're wanting to save a bit of cash.

  • Available in 42, 48, 55, 65, and 77-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR10, HDMI 2.1, 120Hz, VRR
  • An incredibly low 1.5ms input lag

Samsung QN95A and QN90A QLED TVs

If you're worried about burn-in from an OLED panel and are turned off by the seriously high price of the LG OLED TVs, Samsung's QLED TVs are another fantastic choice. QLED is Samsung's take on OLED and is widely claimed to be brighter and have a longer lifespan across larger screen sizes. OLED, meanwhile, has better viewing angles and deeper black levels.

The QN95A and QN90A models are identical in many ways, but there are some key differences. The QN95A is the company's flagship 4K model and is the only one of the two to feature four 2.1 HDMI ports (the QN90A only has one), but both models have 4K screens and that all-important HDR10 + dynamic HDR.

If your budget can't stretch to accommodate the LG C2 range, this should be your next consideration. Note that the QN95A isn't available in North America.

  • Available in 55, 65, 75, and 85-inch variations (availability is harder to come by in 2022)
  • 4K, HDR10+, HDMI 2.1, 120Hz, VRR
  • Roughly 9ms of input latency
  • Prices start at roughly £1,000/$1,200

Mid-Budget: Cheaper Prices, But Still Ticks All The Boxes

If the models shown in our top tier are a bit out of your current price range, consider checking out these next selections. Here, we've handpicked TVs that still offer all the essentials to get the most out of your Xbox, but are more affordable thanks to their cheaper display technologies.

Sony Bravia X90J TV

The next TV on our list comes from Sony – the Bravia X90J. It comes with HDR10, a very nice and low 8.5ms input lag, is available in a number of sizes, and offers 120fps support thanks to its two HDMI 2.1 ports (there are also two HDMI 2.0 ports for your other devices). The downside compared to the more expensive choices above is that this TV has an LED screen, rather than the fancier OLED or QLED screens which offer a higher quality picture.

  • Available in 50, 55, 65, 75, and 85-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR10+, HDMI 2.1, 120Hz, VRR (via update)
  • Roughly 9ms of input latency
  • Prices start at roughly £799/$999

LG Nano90/Nano91 TV

The final option in our list that still supports [email protected] thanks to its two HDMI 2.1 ports, the LG NanoCell range is one of the most affordable TVs that can still offer you everything you need to get the most out of your Xbox Series X.

The lower price is reflected in the screen quality – the NanoCell display is still very pleasant on the eye, but can't compete with the incredible contrast available on the OLED and QLED screens highlighted above. This set does include a 'Game Optimiser' mode to give you quick access to all your game-specific settings, however, meaning you can still tailor your display to suit your surroundings and activate them when necessary.

The Nano90 (or Nano91, as it's called in the UK) is an improvement on the previous Nano85/86 models and is a solid choice if your budget falls just below the amount necessary to pick up one of the better TVs above.

  • Available in 55, 65, 75, and 86 inch-variations
  • 4K, HDR10, HDMI 2.1
  • Roughly 14.7ms lag input (when in 'game optimiser' mode)
  • Prices start at roughly £699/$799

Lower-Budget: 4K TVs At More Affordable Prices

In this section, our focus is on securing a more affordable price rather than making sure every perfect feature is available. The TVs from here on won't come with all the bells and whistles needed to make your Xbox shine at its brightest, but still pack in a gorgeous 4K display, solid frame rates and more to deliver a strong but budget-friendly package.

There's no way of playing games at 120 frames-per-second on it, but an extremely low input latency ensures that a great deal of quality gaming can be enjoyed using this television. It also has tons of apps built into the operating system, meaning Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and more are only a button press away.

  • 4K, HDR10, HDMI 2.0
  • Roughly 10ms of input latency

Hisense A6GT TV (UK Only)

Here we get away from the biggest TV manufacturers for a Hisense set that can still serve as a great upgrade for your home. This television can be as small as 43 inches, which might be a better fit for those who don't have lots of space to play with, and is now regularly available at a very low price point for TVs in the 4K market.

The A6GT range still comes with HDR and a dedicated game mode designed to reduce input lag, and will therefore allow you to play your games comfortably. As long as you don't go in expecting to experience any titles at 120Hz (HDMI 2.1 isn't supported here) or marvel at the stunning displays offered in the TVs above, you'll be all good to go!

  • Available in 43, 50, 55, and 58-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR, HDMI 2.0
  • Roughly 20ms of input latency (claimed by manufacturer, game mode only)
  • Prices start at roughly £299

TCL Android TVs

Here we have slightly different TVs from TCL depending on your location, both of which are perhaps more ideally suited to those looking for more of an all-rounder budget TV. Both sets featured below advertise their compatibility with voice-recognition software like Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as their ability to connect to your Android or iOS smartphone, above all else, indicating that gaming isn't exactly the focus here.

However, the TVs still have HDR support and 4K displays, meaning that those looking to spend as little as possible will still get a decent image from their console. If you're trying and failing to convince any non-gaming family members to go with something a little more flashy, perhaps this option could be a decent compromise?

  • Available in 43, 50, 55-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR, HDMI 2.0
  • Prices start from £269/$269
