Picture Quality

LG 50UK6500 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. This 2018 model has an additional feature compared to the same model last year and that is local dimming, which improves the black colors depth so the movie watching experience will be splendid. Also the ultra luminance increases the contrast ratio even more so you will see brighter whites and darker blacks. We will give 4.2/5 points for the LG 50UK6500 review part of the picture quality.


LG 50UK6500 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 50UK6500 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 50UK6500 review part of the features.


LG 50UK6500 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 50UK6500 review part of the sound.


LG 50UK6500 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 50UK6500 review part of the design.


The LG 50UK6500 price was $489 as of May 2018 which is not that bad for a 4K TV. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 50UK6500 review part of the price.

LG 50UK6500 Review Conclusions

LG 50UK6500 is a very good TV in general. The picture quality is very good thanks to the 4k resolution and active HDR technology.
