 Closer Look – Display Panel

At a closer look, the LG 49UH603V has a dimension of 1.11 m x 20.9 cm x 69.6 cm. It boasts a true black display panel, a proprietary technology that minimizes reflections and enhances contrast ratio for a more comfortable viewing experience, and an IPS display panel that provides an enhanced color quality display, amazing colour accuracy from all viewing angles and it does not lighten or show tailing when touched.

As a 4K TV, it is expected that it has a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. So if you try to play a 720p movie, the experience of watching it might not be likable but that is not the case for this TV. LG equipped this TV with a 4K upscaling technology. Meaning, the TV will convert your movies that are not 4K in resolution to 4K quality. So you can enjoy your movies, videos, or even video games on this TV.

Closer Look – System

The LG 49UH603V TV is also a Smart TV. It uses LG’s very own operating system called WebOS 3.0. A few notable features of the LG’s WebOS 3.0 are the split screen viewing allowing you to watch two different channels or two different videos at the same time. You can also browse the internet, watch videos on Youtube, Netflix, and Google Videos using their respective native apps or even the built-in internet browser.

In terms of hardware for those that wish to know the TV’s components, LG did not specify the details of the components used in this TV. That means we have no idea how much RAM it uses but we do know that it uses a quad core processor which is a big upgrade from their dual core processors that are used on their older TV models. So you can expect that the LG 49UH603V UltraHD 4K Smart TV will be fast and responsive.

Looking at the back, we can see that it has 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 RJ45 Ethernet port, and an RF/Components inputs for those with an old component system that still uses old cables such as audio/video jacks.

Some might say that there are other better options out there but finding the right 4K Smart TV for you solely depends on your preference. For us, the LG 48UH603V really hits that right spot for a 4K Smart TV. The display panel alone packs a ton of feature that dramatically enhances your viewing experience.  The richness of the color and the depth of the contrast and black is really amazing thank to its IPS True Black display panel. In addition to that, having a quad core processor packs this TV some muscles that really upgrade its hardware performance. Assuring you that smooth and fast responsiveness of the TV when you’re browsing the internet or using the native apps.

Overall, the LG 48UH603V is a great UltraHD 4K Smart TV and it’ll be difficult to find an alternative or a better buy than this for just £420.00 on Amazon. Although, since it is already 2017. If you plan to buy a brand new 4K Smart TV from LG, then we highly recommend looking forward to LG’s 2017 models. Since the LG 49UH603V is a 2016 model.
