The 65-inch LG OLED TV from the C1 series is another top-rated option from LG. The smart TV features built-in Google Assistant and Alexa. It currently has an impressive 4.8-star rating on Amazon.

Unlike LED and QLED TVs, OLED TVs don't have a backlight layer. Instead, each pixel is its own teeny-tiny LED light that can independently adjust luminosity and even turn off completely. Because each pixel functions independently, the TV offers elite image quality -- and the darkest shadows. OLED televisions also tend to be ultra thin. The LG set featured here measures just 1.8 inches thick.

65" LG NanoCell 90 series smart 4K UHD TV

The TV's Game Optimizer feature provides easy access to all your favorite game settings. The 90 series LG TV also features built-in Google Assistant and Alexa.
