HD vs. FHD vs. 4K: Which Television Should I Buy?


ZB-3528
When buying a television, there are many aspects you take into consideration, like the brand, size of the TV — and resolution, to name a few! HD or high definition is the quality of image one sees on electronic devices like the TV, phone, etc. Resolutions offered are:
 
HD offers 1,366 x 768 pixels
Full HD is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels 
UD or 4K is 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
 
Resolution is the number of pixels a display has in width x height format (the more pixels a display has, the sharper its image quality). In simple terms, the higher the resolution, the better the image quality. Let’s dig deeper…
 
What is normal HD?
720p is commonly referred to as HD (high definition). As mentioned above, this display resolution measures approximately 1,366 x 768 pixels. 720p is based on the old Standard Definition (SD) — however, HD TVs are rarely available today.
 
What is full HD?
A Full HD, also known as FHD, is used most commonly in current televisions, Blu-ray players, and video content. Image resolution or full HD is about 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels high, which is a total of 2.07 megapixels. Often, Full HD is called 1080i and 1080p. 
 
Note: Full HD is not the same as HD Ready, which has a resolution of 1280x720 pixels. Basically, the HD Ready has approximately 50% fewer amount of pixels. Even on a short distance, this difference is clearly visible for big screens.
 
What is Ultra HD?
Ultra HD, UHD, or 4K is the popular choice in televisions today, along with other media players and video content. The Ultra HD resolution displays at least 4 times as many pixels as Full HD images, hence the 4K name. Many UHD devices also feature an upscaler that makes Full HD videos appear sharper. Doing so helps the view enjoy images that were recorded in Full HD on the sharper screen of an Ultra HD television.
 
What should you buy?

The choice depends largely on your budget and viewing presence. HD-ready TV may work out cheaper — but the technology is redundant, and they are alright for watching SD (standard definition) content. I
 
Between FHD & UHD:
When Full HD Blu-ray discs were launched, people thought it wouldn’t compare with DVD’s. The thing is, the technology always advances, and when you compare the old and the new — the difference is evident.
 
4K offers a high-resolution image and an immersive viewing experience that seems more natural. Research shows that the horizontal human field of view is around 100 degrees. Each degree accepts up to 60 pixels. So 6,000 pixels can meet exceptions of a maximum horizontal field of view and the resolution of viewed images. 
 
To make it simpler, UHF has 4 times higher than Full HD. With a similar-sized TV, viewers can sit closer to the display and gain a larger coverage angle without any quality issues.
 
Note: Few 8K resolution devices are being tested. This refers to a display or image resolution with a width of approximately 8000 pixels.
