This LG smart TV is a truly noteworthy model. Unfortunately, however, the general opinion of users has been significantly lowered by non-optimal experiences as regards shipping, even if this does not have a direct relationship with the quality and efficiency of the functions and technologies that distinguish this television.
First of all, it should be noted that, unlike most screens, the one in question is a 4K IPS . Its features ensure optimal vision from any angle, without creating imbalances in terms of image or color. Consequently, this smart TV responds, for example, to the needs of large families , who often have the dilemma of positioning on the sofa.
In addition to this type of panel there are other technologies to be highlighted, supported by the new Quad Core processor . Its function is to eliminate noise from the screen in order to make every single content precise and optimized. This, in addition to Active HDR technology and 4K UHD resolution, ensures a realistic and clear view for a highly immersive entertainment experience.
As for the color range, rich in thousands of colors and shades, LG has arranged three technologies : True Color Accuracy, Noise Reduction and Color Enhancer. That’s why, as we said, moments in front of the TV become one of a kind. In fact, the visual quality is what has led many users to share their experiences with television in a positive way.
On the same level of efficiency we find the sound system , characterized by multiple virtual audio channels, output power of 20 watts and the Ultra Surround system. However, from our point of view, we find the smart section of this 49-inch LG to be equally commendable. The base operating system, webOS 4.5 , is very simple to use, smooth and efficient.
This allows you to download numerous applications to expand your entertainment offer, without considering all those that you find already installed. Among the latter we highlight LG Channels, an app that allows you to access numerous exclusive programs. The smart section is also characterized by the AI ThinQ , LG’s artificial intelligence.
Its presence offers you the integration of Google Assistant and Alexa , the voice assistants that will make the interaction with the smart TV even faster and more intuitive. Another convenience comes from the versatility of the remote control , which you can use to manage all the devices connected to the television. The last advantage to point out concerns the presence of the AirPlay 2 function, which allows you to connect Apple devices to the TV screen.
In short, on the whole we can say that this 49-inch smart TV is a real gem, especially if you also take into account the advantage related to its cost. It is no coincidence that it has been included in our guide to the Best 49 inches of the moment . The only flaw, if you can call it that, concerns the design , which could certainly have been studied better. In fact, the panel is not very slim; the frames, on the other hand, leave an excellent viewing space.
