Picture Quality

LG 55UK6500PLA 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 very vibrant and vivid colors. That comes to use when watching colorful content like nature documentaries or even when playing games. Another good feature is the local dimming technology which improves the black colors depth so the movie watching experience will be splendid. Also a good display feature is the ultra luminance which increases the contrast ratio so you will see brighter whites and darker blacks. We will give 4.3/5 points for the LG 55UK6500PLA review part of the picture quality.


LG 55UK6500PLA 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 55UK6500PLA review part of the features.


LG 55UK6500PLA 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 55UK6500PLA review part of the sound.


LG 55UK6500PLA 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 look good too even that they are so common amongst TV designs. We will give 5/5 points for the LG 55UK6500PLA review part of the design.


The LG 55UK6500PLA price was £569 as of November 2018 which is not that bad for a 4K TV. We will give 4.5/5 points for the LG 55UK6500PLA review part of the price.
