Hisense U8G vs U7H: Design
Hisense U8G features a unique and stylish design. The three side bezels of the TV screen are so thin that they are almost negligible. The silver bezel at the bottom is more prominent, and whether you like this design depends entirely on your personal preference. The butterfly-shaped stand design is different from other TV stands in that the stand is wide and sturdy enough to hold the TV securely.
Hisense U7H has a sleek, high-end design, similar to the U8G, with a very thin bezel on three sides and a slightly prominent silver bezel at the bottom. The TV uses a more conventional V-shaped stand, and you can choose the stand in a wide or narrow position depending on the size of the table. Both mounts raise the TV high enough to place the soundbar in front of the TV.
Both the U8G and U7H are made of plastic on the back, with the U8G featuring a beautiful checkerboard design and the U7H also featuring this pattern on the bottom half.
Both TVs support standard VESA wall mounting with cable management on the back. The inputs are located on the side of the TV, so they are easily accessible.
Hisense U8G vs U7H: Picture Quality
The Hisense U8G has excellent contrast, providing bright highlights and deep blacks as you watch dark scenes in movies. the U8G's full-array local dimming feature further optimizes the contrast, but not as much as its successor, the U8H (2022 model).
The U8G has amazing HDR peak brightness and still maintains high-quality HDR content rendering in game mode. If you like to watch TV shows or play games in a bright room, the U8G should give you a good experience.
Hisense U7H also has an excellent contrast ratio, and with the addition of its local dimming function, it can render very good highlights and deep blacks for watching programs in dark environments. Some flickering occurs with fast-moving images.
The U7H has good peak brightness, but is not as good as the U8G. You'll get a great HDR experience in both gaming mode and watching movies.
As LED TVs, the common problem of Hisense U7H and U8G is their narrow viewing angle. When your viewing angle is off-center, the image quality drops significantly and fades. If you wish to watch TV with more than one person, you may want to consider an OLED TV with a wider viewing angle.
Hisense U8G vs U7H: Sound Quality
The Hisense U8G's built-in speakers provide good sound, and the TV has a good sound balance and is capable of producing some bass. You can adjust the sound of the TV by adjusting the sound mode or the equalizer.
The speakers on the U7H perform well and there is little distortion at high volume levels.
But if you want to get a better sound experience, I recommend you buy a good soundbar.
