LG 49UK6300 has a very good picture quality thanks to the 4k resolution which is four times greater than full HD. The most important display feature is the Active HDR which brings the content to life thanks to the beautiful colors it displays and it is very useful when watching those nature documentaries or even when playing games. However, we have some bad news for the movie lovers because this TV doesn’t support local dimming. Local dimming technology dims the backlight of the screen where the colors are black thus providing darker blacks. We are not saying that the blacks on this TV are lousy but they are not as good as they would be if the TV would support local dimming. We will give 4/5 points for the LG 49UK6300 review part of the picture quality.
LG 49UK6300 has two new very interesting features this year and those are ThinQ and Google assistant. ThinQ is LG’s artificial intelligence which makes the TV the hub for all your smart devices. So you can control all the smart devices in your home through the TV. LG 49UK6300 is also compatible with Google home and Alexa devices. Apart from these new features there are also the usual ones that almost every smart TV has. These include connection to the internet through the built-in wireless technology or through the Ethernet port and screen sharing technology with your smartphone. The operating system is user friendly and you can also download useful apps and stream content from the biggest streaming companies. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 49UK6300 review part of the features.
LG 49UK6300 has two built-in speakers with 10W power each. The total output of 20 W is usually enough, unless you are standing too far from the TV. If that is the case, you should consider buying external speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. 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. We will give 4/5 points for the LG 49UK6300 review part of the sound.
LG 49UK6300 has a very good design overall and the color looks good. The frame is quite thin which will make the TV look good if you wall mount it. Also some of the connection ports are on the side so shouldn’t be a problem if you wall mount it. The stands do not look bad either but they are so common amongst TV designs. We will give 4.5/5 points for the LG 49UK6300 review part of the design.
The LG 49UK6300 price was $546 as of May 2018 which is not that bad for a 4K TV. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 49UK6300 review part of the price.
LG 49UK6300 Review Conclusions
LG 49UK6300 is a very good TV in general. The picture quality is very good thanks to the 4k resolution and active HDR technology. It also comes with new features this year like the ThinQ technology and compatibility with Google home and Alexa devices. The sound is also loud and clear but that also depends on the content quality. Design is also very good and the price is not bad either. We hope our LG 49UK6300 review has been helpful to you.
