How does it fare with QLED and OLED

How does it fare with QLED and OLED


It's a great price for its range but you can't really compare this with a proper QLED (Q70r +) or an OLED. You wouldn't get a true QLED or OLED at this price.

In terms of price and quality, you will be hard placed to find better than this at the size though.

This does have advantages though - the brightness is better than OLED, it has Dolby vision, LG's OS which many prefer, etc

I'm after a TV in this price bracket (could maybe stretch a bit further) and you seem knowledgeable, so if you wouldn't mind I have a few questions.

From what I understand this Dolby Vision is similar to HDR10 which seems important, is that true and is it as good as 'true' HDR10 (not 8+2)?

Why is LG's OS so good? Is this in reference to being able to install smart aps, or is it just smoother when using the TV in general?

What TV would you go for, 50" give or take, at or around this price?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well I wouldn't say knowledgeable but have done my research as was looking for a new TV myself. Have also been through this before when buying a new TV.

I don't know about all the technical aspects of them, but as it seems neither do you necessarily, you won't be as picky as some others who seem to nitpick every aspect of a TV.

As I understand Dolby Vision is similar to HDR10+ which can interpret the Dolby Vision signal to provide a similar result. Maybe someone can confirm this.

In terms ofthe OS for LG it is more in terms of ease of use, the magic remote, which makes browsing a breeze etc.

At this price point and for the size of TV you are looking at, I would not think you could find better.

Although you can get the 49' Q60R for £629 which could be comparable. It also has a good score on rtings.com.
I recently replaced a Samsung Frame 2019 QLED with this.
I also have a 65" LG OLED C9 in the main room of the house, so this was bought as a secondary TV.
The colours and sharpness are nice and the motion is smooth, the blacks are acceptable, obviously you can't compare the blacks to the OLED but for a non-OLED TV they are great.
There is slight light bleed in the bottom right of the screen due to the edge lighting that is fairly noticeable if you are watching a film with black bars.
This TV advertises 'Full Array Local Dimming' but it's kind of useless because it only has 4 horizontal zones so you get vertical strips of light that is really annoying, so I found myself turning this off completely.
I love the LG WebOS, it's easy to use and edit and in my opinion is much more slick than Samsung's OS, as is the remote (You get the LG magic remote that you can use like a wii controller/gyro mouse)
This comes with Google's assistant over Bixby.
I think you can get a 55" LG OLED for less than £1k at the moment but if your budget is any less than that, this is the TV i'd go for.
For the price it's a fantastic TV and you can't really go wrong.

For watching Sky Channels in Full HD as opposed to 4k would it still be a worthwhile upgrade over a 6 year old Full HD TV?

Thank you both for your comments, that's a big help. Slightly concerned at the edge bleed as somewhere else mentioned that as well.

I can't really afford much more than £600 so I think OLED is unfortunately out of the question. This doesn't seem bad at all, especially as I'm upgrading from a 1080p 37" TV.

I think you'll probably notice it because you've read about it and are expecting it, but you soon get used to it and it wasn't so bad that I felt I had to return it.
I'd definitely go for this TV again if I wanted another at this price range. I think it's worth you seeing in a shop or buying and being ready to return it if you decide you can't live with it.

I've gone for it, the fact I'm getting rid of Sky and this has freesat built in. One more question though, can this record from freesat if you plug in a usb drive / stick? Thanks.

I haven't tried this as I don't have an aerial plugged into the TV, but in the specs sheet it's listed as having a PVR function and "LG Time Machine" which I think is what they call the ability to record and rewind live TV.

You won't get proper qled at any price because the tech isn't there yet and they haven't been built.
With the 5yr warrant this is the best priced lg available

I'm starting my search for a TV, to buy later this year, so your info is helpful, and I've added this one to my list. I also quite fancy the Samsung Frame, may I ask why you returned it? Cheers.

The blacks were really bad and there was a problem with the screen automatically adjusting brightness even when all the ECO and "Intelligent" settings were turned off that just made it unwatchable

Auto Brightness Problem

The artwork mode is really bad too. It just looks exactly as you'd imagine it would, like you left a dimly lit TV on!

If you are looking to buy later in the year, pay attention to CES tomorrow and Friday. LG have already announced a 48" OLED but haven't announced pricing yet

Thanks. Yes, I've been checking the CES news - I'll look out for the OLED. Pity about the Art screen, perhaps it was too ambitious with present technology. Cheers.
