With so many TV brands vying for your attention, look no further than these two industry giants, Philips and Hisense. In fact, in the current market, these brands stand out. 

Without further ado, we shall explore what makes these two brands peculiar by comparing the features and what makes them stand out.

Philips was established in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, by Frederik Philips and his son, Gerard. This brand played a pivotal role in developing the first reliable X-ray tubes. Also, they pioneered inventions like the cassette tape, CD, and Blu-ray. They further went on to be known for high-quality TVs and design-centric appliances. A groundbreaking feature of their TVs is the unique Ambilight technology, casting ambient light behind the screen for an immersive viewing experience.

On the other hand, Hisense traces its roots back to 1969 when it emerged as a small radio factory named “Qingdao No. 2 Radio Factory” in Qingdao, China. Initially focused on radios, the company swiftly diversified its product line to include televisions and other electronic appliances. By 1978, Hisense established itself as a leading manufacturer of radio and television sets in China, entering the international market in Southeast Asia by 1991. By 2014, it officially became the world's fourth-largest TV brand by market share.
