Review Summary:

The LG 50UH635V is a little expensive, but the buyer does get a lot for their money. The UHD screen looks great, and when you play HDR content on this model, it is just phenomenal. Along with the high quality picture, the user also gets Smart TV, two built in tuners and the ability to record and play content from the USB. If you have the budget and you want a good 50-inch TV, this model packs a lot of value.

As a TV with a 50-inch screen and a Smart TV setup, the LG 50UH635V is a great TV for the price. The UHD screen looks fantastic for just about every type of viewing and the set comes with a great selection of features. With its ease of use and performance, this is a model that is sure to please.

As a TV with a 4k resolution screen, the picture quality is really something to behold. The screen provides great detail to all of the images and it can display a vast array of colours for a high quality picture that will not disappoint. This TV from LG also delivers really good contrast with dark blacks and high brightness. The viewer experiences a level of onscreen depth and detail that makes look like it is really there.

In addition to all of that, this is an HDR compatible TV. When you have an HDR content source, it really turns the contrast and the colours up. This makes for a picture that is much more like the one that the creator intended. The options for content may be somewhat limited, but any viewer is bound to be impressed when they get a chance to see some real HDR viewing on this set.

The sound quality on this TV is definitely adequate for any type of viewing, but it certainly does not match up to the picture quality. It has two 10W speakers and Dolby Digital sound. This is enough to get by on, but some users will probably consider purchasing something like a soundbar. One of the HDMI ports on this TV is ARC enabled and you do have an optical audio out and the ability to connect compatible sound systems through Bluetooth, so you do have some good options if you choose to buy an external system.

For your extra features, this TV does have a lot to offer. First, this TV comes with the Freeview and Freesat tuners built in. Beyond that, the 50UH635V has a user-friendly Smart TV, it comes with DVR recording and media playback from USB and it can do screen mirroring from mobile devices.

The Smart TV with LG’s WebOS platform helps to make this TV a real standout. It is very easy to use and the controls are easy to navigate. With this system, the user gets a world of entertainment options that can be pulled up almost instantly. You can stream videos, get TV catch up, watch on demand videos and more.

The connectivity options from the 50UH635V help to make this TV easy to get set up. The user has 3 HDMI ports for connecting different HD components, it has the component connection, you get 2 USB inputs, the optical audio out and it has a headphone socket. For connecting to the internet, you can also choose between connecting wirelessly through your Wi-Fi or you can plug in with an Ethernet cable.

  1. What about Colorspace coverage… I’ve read in other places that the LG entry 4k level has a very low color space coverage, so even if it is labeled as HDR, the truth is that you’ll miss a lot with this low level entry point tvs…
