Also not true 10bit it's (8bit + FRC)


If it was a 65” OLED for £499 you’d still find something to moan about fgs.

It’s a decent branded 55” 4K for £499 in a high street store, what’s not to like.

No like it’s a bloody techwood or similar cheap brand

I'm not moaning just letting you people no it's not true 10bit.

Also I never said it wasn't a good deal as I voted it hot for what it is

Can you link me to a 10bit 55" TV for £499?
49" is £399 which seems fair

To be fair I got the impression it was true 10bit from the ops description...maybe worth amending to prevent confusion if its genuinely 8bit + FRC. However appears good price so voted hot too
Which Magazine rated it just under 'best buy' status whilst priced at £540; "Although it misses the Best Buy mark by a few percent, the LG 55UJ634V is still worth a closer look. With a big screen and a decent all-round performance, the reasonably priced TV is good value."

Not as good as OLED, but then you'd pay twice the price without getting anywhere near twice as good.

For all intents and purposes it's 'true 10-bit' (other than full HDR support, which no TV has yet). Whether the LCD panel is 8-bit or 10-bit doesn't affect much.

Well that's just all kinds of wrong. I won't write you a long essay why. I'll just urge people planning on using HDR to do their research before hand.
Can some of you kind people please advise on which of these TVs you would recommend over the other?

I'm not saying it has a lot in the way of HDR support, it doesn't. I'm just saying that it checks all the relevant 10-bit boxes, as does every other TV on the market that claims HDR, and buyers should be focusing on more important aspects like colour volume.
Was looking at this instore today but wasn't switched on and no remotes around. Played with a 49" lg, do all LG tv's come with a magic remote??

No.
The seven series (701v and 750v) do.
I believe the oled models do too.

Original Poster
In my defense as the OP I just copied the specs from Currys webpage and the specs in-store.
Ill try to correct the Post. Thank you!
PS: Picture looked pretty good since it was off and just reflecting me

They're both budget Tv's and won't be much between them. Both good value for money tbf. If you're in the market at this price range it'll prob come down to which os you prefer.

Think the product page says 50hz


50hz is the standard we use in the UK, but TVs can switch between 50hz, 60hz and 24hz.
Most 4K TVs I've seen are 8 bit + FRC and not true 10 bit. However, as the FRC allows the 8 bit panel to approximate 10 bit colours, so you could say it's emulated 10 bit I guess. The only TVs I've seen that are true 10 bit are the Samsung 7000 series. Also, bear in mind most content such as DVD, Blu-ray or Sky HD is only recorded in 8 bit anyway. Ultra HD Blu-ray is recorded in 10 bit, but no guarantee all 4K content will be.

LG: RGBW. If you don't care about colour accuracy or intensity or contrast in a dark room and want the best smart OS, the LG is fine. Most people don't care about those things.

If you want a slick smart OS but no real apps beyond the UK catchup players and main steaming apps and a better picture quality all round, go for the Hisense.

I would personally skip them both and go for the Hisense H50/55N6800 which has the best picture and sound performance of the lot for a little more.

Yep, 10bit only matters for 4K HDR content encoded in it and honestly debatable even then. It's more for clean gradients in graphics based content, but manufacturer's just use it as a way of brainwashing and up selling. When was the last time anyone watched decent HD content and complained about the mess of colours/banding that 8bit has?

Exactly, 8 bit is generally good enough as it is. Not forgetting 8 bit + FRC are better than standard 8 bit panels anyway.
