The LG 49UM6950DUB offers a very good picture quality thanks to the 4k resolution, which is four times higher than Full HD. The most important display function is the 4K Active HDR, which brings the content to life thanks to the beautiful colors. It is very useful when viewing nature documentaries or even playing games. However, we have some bad news for movie lovers, as this TV does not support local dimming. The local dimming technology dims the backlight of the screen when the colors are black, thus providing a darker image. We do not say the blacks on this TV are lousy, but they are not as good as the TV would support local dimming. The colors are also very good thanks to the color accuracy technology. We will give 4/5 points for the LG 49UM6950DUB review part of picture quality.
The LG 49UM6950DUB is a smart TV that lets you connect to the Internet and browse online content. You can find some useful apps in the App Store and you can stream movies from the biggest streaming companies. It also has a Google Assistant and is compatible with Google Home and Alexa devices but please keep in mind that this devices are not included in the TV, you have to buy them separately. As far as the AI goes, this TV is well equipped. It also has all the important connectivities, and you can also connect it to your smartphone. We will give 4/5 points for the LG 49UM6950DUB review part of the features.
The LG 49UM6950DUB has two built-in speakers with 10 W each. The total power of 20 W is usually sufficient, unless you are too far away from the TV. In this case, buy external speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. The ultra-surround mode is good, especially if you buy external speakers. The sound is also clear, but that depends on the quality of the content. We will award 4/5 points for LG 49UM6950DUB review part of sound.
LG 49UM6950DUB overall has a very good design and the color looks good. The build quality is not the best, but not bad either. The frame is quite thin, which makes the TV look good when wall-mounted. In addition, some of the ports are on the side, so wall mounting is not a problem. We will give 4/5 points for the LG 49UM6950DUB review part of the design.
