65" TV - help me decide

Our Hisense 55" (H55A6550UK) just died after 2 years. It was still under guarantee, so we were given a full refund by Costco. It was one of their cheaper models (£330), but we were quite happy with it (especially considering we upgraded from a 42" plasma!).

I thought value for money on the Hisense was excellent. Yes, it stopped working, but we got a full refund.

I'm now looking to replace it with a 65".

My options are (all through Costco):
Lower end: Hisense 65A7GQTUK = £600
Mid level: Hisense 65U8GQTUK = £750
Top end: LG OLED65C14LB = £1,390

We use the TV for:
  • 80% streaming (Netflix, Prime, Disney, iPlayer)
  • 15% live TV through freesat
  • 5% Nintendo switch

I know that this is a really good price for the LG, but I'm wondering if its really worth double (or more than double) the Hisense options. I know its better...but is it that much better? We are not very fussy, and certainly wouldn't sit there trying to find deeper blacks or tiny bits of motion lag or whatnot. Something better than our old 55" would be nice, but as to how much nicer... I don't know!

Thanks for any advice.
