Picture Quality

LG 50UK6950 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 4K Active HDR technology which brings the content to life by displaying vibrant and vivid colors. That comes to use when watching colorful content like nature documentaries or even when playing games. However, the 50 inch size of this TV comes without local dimming which is a bad news for the movie lovers. Local dimming is a display feature the dims the backlight of the screen where the colors are black thus enhancing their depth. Contrast ratio is good and the colors look really good. We will give 4.2/5 points for the LG 50UK6950 review part of the picture quality.

Features

LG 50UK6950 has one new interesting feature this year and that is ThinQ. ThinQ is LG’s artificial intelligence which makes the interaction with the TV easier. Apart from this new feature 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. The TV is very good for playing games too because it has a low input lag. We will give 4.5/5 points for the LG 50UK6950 review part of the features.

Sound

LG 50UK6950 has two built-in speakers with 10W power each. The total output of 20W 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 50UK6950 review part of the sound.

Design

LG 50UK6950 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 stand looks good too even that it is king of big. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 50UK6950 review part of the design.

Price

The LG 50UK6950 price was £799 as of April 2018 which is not that bad for a super UHD TV. We will give 4.5/5 points for the LG 50UK6950 review part of the price.

LG 50UK6950 Review Conclusions

LG 50UK6950 is a very good TV in general. The picture quality is very good thanks to the 4k resolution and the 4K Active HDR technology. It doesn’t support local dimming technology so the movie watching experience is less enjoyable. It also comes with a new feature this year, the ThinQ technology which is the LG’s artificial intelligence. 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 50UK6950 review has been helpful to you.
