Images filled in 2K and Full HD are also upscaled by the television, bringing it as close to 4K resolution as possible. Reviewers love that they can use Google Assistant to enjoy hands-free control of the TV. With other features, like the intuitive Google TV streaming platform, built-in Chromecast, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, this 43-inch entertainment unit makes for a great first, or even second television for your home.

The video offers a 155-degree horizontal and 90-degree vertical field of vision, giving you a clear view of all the goings-on in front of your home.
