Curved TV vs. Flat Screen TV

With the growth of the TV market, more and more designs are emerging, including better resolutions, such as 4K ultra HD. Also, the TV market has seen a new type of model emerging: the curved TV. Now, the skeptics may wonder whether these are better than flat-screen TVs, and this question is normal. When it comes to your home CCTV installation, you should be 100% sure you’re making the right choice. Well, this article is here to help you figure that out.


Perhaps the most basic, albeit shallow, the question most people may have has to do with the appearance factor. Well, if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. TVs are always going to be seen, whether they are in use or not, and how they will impact the room’s aesthetics, too. This is a matter of personal preferences at the end of the day. However, most people agree that curved TVs can be quite elegant. However, their problem is hanging them on a wall, where they tend to look slightly out of place. So, if you’re planning on hanging it, go with a flat-screen one. If not, a curved one can work.

Curved TV vs. Flat Screen TV


Most people argue for curved TVs because they are supposed to offer a more immersive experience due to their inward curves and improved contrast. The angle doesn’t make a big difference for most homes’ smaller sizes. The difference is notable in theatres, where the screens are huge, but not so much for home versions.

Viewing Angle

One problem with curved TVs is that their shape can ruin the viewing angle, depending on where one is sitting. As such, as long as you are sitting more or less in front of the center of the TV, you will be experiencing the benefits this sort of TV offers. However, if you move to the side, those benefits will evaporate, and your viewing experience will be quite ruined. One way to overcome this is to get a bigger TV if this is at all possible. Indeed, the larger the screen, the bigger the perfect viewing area will be, which means more people will enjoy its benefits.


As far as reflections go, the first thing to keep in mind is that the effect will be much more impacted depending on the screen’s gloss and not so much on its level of curvature. Of course, as you may expect, the glossier the screen, the more reflections you will notice. Now, when comparing a flat TV with a curved one, where both have the same level of gloss, ihe reflections on the curved one are worse simply because they get distorted by its shape. This is the comparison between flat-screen TVs and curved ones. As such, the best thing to do to keep these to a minimum is to position them so that there are a few rays of light hitting the screen as possible. Like with any other kind of purchase, your personal preferences and user habits should determine which type of TV you will purchase at the end of the day.
