LG Smart TV 2018: Review, models, and smart Features

LG Smart tv

There is no more important component of a 4K UHD TV than the video engine – particularly the ability to upscale/upconvert resolution to the native resolution of the panel. For the last four years, LG’s TVs with OLED panels that are organic light emitting diode screens have taken top honors for picture quality in CNET’s reviews. LG has a large lineup that covers everything from the very cheap and small lower resolution TVs to the very high end with their OLEDs.

Every year they beat the best LCD-based TVs, and every year I call the newest LG OLED the best TV I’ve ever tested.
