    It doesn't have any HDR display ability if that's important to you, but nothing else does at that price. It's also got an unusual pixel structure so not ideal for PC or other text-heavy use.

    Otherwise it's a reasonable lower mid-range TV.

    It is HDR pro. With a spectacular 3850 x 2160 4K resolution, you can enjoy a viewing experience that's so lifelike you'll feel like you're right there at the heart of the action, whether it's a rom-com, your favourite soap, the big match or a Hollywood blockbuster.

    The clever 4K Upscaler feature even converts lower resolution entertainment for added detail, so your Blu-ray movies and other HD content will look near 4K quality.

    New HDR Pro technology creates a remarkably dynamic colour range that's closer to the huge range of hues and shades that your eye can process. Sun glistens off water, stars shine brighter in the sky - your entertainment comes to life.

    Ultra Surround sound enables the built-in 2-channel speaker to create an outstanding audio performance you'd expect from a 7-channel speaker.

    The LG 60UH605V is also Smart, with a range of easy-to-use internet features. Use that deluxe screen to watch YouTube videos or keep up with all your social networking via Facebook and Twitter through the browser feature. You can also watch TV shows via catch-up services such as the BBC iPlayer and Demand 5.

    There's access to NOW TV, where you can enjoy a selection of films, including Sky Movies titles. You can also watch both Full HD and 4K Content through the likes of Netflix & Amazon.

    Freeview Play lets you scroll back in the electronic TV guide for catch-up services, so watching the shows you've missed couldn't be easier.
    I already have a 2016 Sony 4K series android. But it is too small due to the size of our lounge.

    Unfortunately TV manufacturers are shooting themselves in the foot with those sort of claims. They're complete nonsense.

    I haven't seen any review of the 605 specifically, but based on TVs above it in the range that claim the same thing, like the 610 and 620, there isn't even the wider colour gamut, let alone the high brightness highlights that require expensive local dimming.

    Add another thousand pounds to the budget if HDR is a big priority, Panasonic's DX902 is a good choice at 58/60"

    It's roughly equivalent to the cheapest Android TV in Sony's range, the XD70.
