If you are wondering what nano cell technology is, you can do a little research but it basically enhances the colors by making them look vibrant and vivid. The most important feature that LG 86SJ957V has is definitely the Active HDR with Dolby Vision which offers bright and colorful content and is very useful when playing games or watching colorful content. Like we said, the colors on this TV look amazing thanks to the nano cell display, active HDR with Dolby vision technology and color mastering engine. Another useful display feature is the ultra luminance which enhances the contrast. Also, we have good news for the movie lovers because this TV has local dimming.

Sound

LG 86SJ957V has two Harman/Kardon built-in speakers with 40W power each. The total output of 80W is more than enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV.

The ultra surround mode is good, especially if you buy external speakers and the sound is clear also, but that depends on the content quality. Other important sound features include the magic sound tuning, LG Sound sync, the DTS decoder and the Hi-Fi audio support. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 86SJ957V review part of the sound.
