Display Panel

review-LG-43UJ630V-4K-Ultra-HD-Smart-TV

As we always recommend, when looking for a TV, always look for the one that features either an IPS display or OLED. Luckily, the display panel of the LG 43UJ630V is IPS. Meaning, it offers high-quality colour reproduction and viewing angles than your typical TFT-LCDs.

In terms of picture quality, the LG 43UJ630V boasts an outstanding quality. This is pretty much expected for a TV that is 4K in native resolution and of a well know brand but on the top of that, the active HDR really adds up to the overall picture quality because it offers bright and colourful images with better deeper details.Of course, it’s not on par with the quality that you can see on SUHD or OLED TVs, but it’s still above satisfactory.

Of course, it’s not on par with the quality that you can see on SUHD or OLED TVs, but it’s still above satisfactory.

In terms of the depth of black, it’s not that quite impressive because this TV doesn’t feature ultra-luminance but not to a point of disappointment. It’s quite okay if you ask us. It still meets our satisfactory standard.

System

Like most smart TV’s on the market, the detailed specification and hardware components are not displayed for the public. However, we do know that it has a 4GB internal storage, which should be enough given the lightness of the apps available for this TV. It also uses a quad-core processor for that smoother and faster responsiveness when browsing the internet or using the built-in apps.

Like most 2017 LG Smart TV models, it uses LG’s latest operating system which is called webOS3.5.

With LG webOS3.5, you can download apps in the LG content store or stream movies from the biggest streaming companies such as NetFlix, Google Play, Amazon, and much more. Also, the LG 43UJ630V has all the screen sharing technologies like Wi-Di, Miracast, and direct Wi-fi. the LG 43UJ630V can receive every type of signal, so you don’t need an external tuner.

Ports

Looking at the back, the LG 43UJ630V features four (4) HDMI 2.0b ports. The use of HDMI 2.0b is a plus for this TV for that 4K@60Hz gaming support.

It also has two (2) USB 2.0 ports for other types of connectivity. As well as optical audio, component input, and composite input.

Audio

The LG 43UJ630V features two built-in speakers that use 20 W of power. The ultra surround mode is of good quality, it’s pretty much expected from a brand that’s been in the business for as long as I can remember but the quality of audio solely depends on the quality of the content being played.

Other sound features include the LG sound sync and the Hi-Fi audio support.

Our Verdict

review-LG-43UJ630V-4K-Ultra-HD-Smart-TV

The LG 43UJ630V is an outstanding TV given its selling price. Compared to its predecessor which is the LG 49UH610V, it definitely offers a significant improvement.

The combination of the active HDR, the native 4K resolution, and other essential features makes the picture quality amazing. It provides vivid colours, deep details, and a wide range of black and white. For its price, it feels like you bought a far more expensive TV but then again, it’s nothing compared to OLED TVs.

Overall, for the price of below £700, it really is a great 4K Smart TV. So if you’re looking to buy a brand new 4K Smart TV, you should consider checking out this TV from LG. We also recommend that you take a look at LG 49UH603V TV.
