LG ThinQ

I have been testing the new generation OLED television by LG recently. They claim to have AI enabled platform in these new televisions. In practice that means, e.g. that they have integrated voice controls with the Google Assistant technology, and now also support Amazon’s Alexa ecosystem (of Echo, Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, and Echo Plus, as well as being able to control speakers and all sorts of connected devices with the television and its voice commands). The image quality is also much better than in the Sony KDL-40NX700 model we bought in July 2010. Many things have happened in 8 years. Our new OLED55C8PLA model now comes with OLED technology with perfect blacks, vibrant colours, and 4k HDR screen that supports both HDR 10 Pro and Dolby Vision systems. The enbedded alpha 9 processor is designed to produce clear images, remove artifacts and render clean video images at very high resolutions. With proper source material coming from USB disk, the processor can even output HFR, 120 frames per second video. The audio supports Dolby Atmos surround sound. The UI is actually also rather nice: the webOS Smart TV that LG has developed is logical enough, and the functions that I have used so far are good. Compared to Android tv platform, there is less apps available for webOS currently, but I personally prefer to run most of my apps in an iPad Pro or Android smartphone, for example. And with with both our Apple TV, and the Miracast support build into LG, there is always the option of projecting that app for the big screen.
