5 Reasons For

Good Brand

4K and 8K TVs manufactured by LG have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all TVs (not just 4K and 8K TVs) and found that LG also has good ratings across its entire range.

3D Compatible

The LG 55UB856 is 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs of this spec and age are not 3D compatible.

Other 3D compatible televisions currently available that you might want to consider include the Samsung UE55JU7502 which has better reviews.

Supports Smart TV Features

The 55UB856 supports smart TV features, as do most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that came out around the same time as the 55UB856, the 55UB856 has a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE55JU7590 is also worth considering.

Quite Thin

Across all the TVs of this age and spec the thicknesses range from 11mm to 100mm. The 55UB856 has one of the thinner thicknesses (only 37.8 millimeters) amongst 4K and 8K TVs of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most TVs of a comparable spec and age to the 55UB856 do not have a built-in camera. The LG 55UB856 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera including the LG 105UC9, or the Samsung UN88JS9500.

Only Supports Three Analog Signal Format Systems

The number of analog signal format systems supported by the LG 55UB856 is more than most 4K and 8K TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This television supports an NTSC analog signal format system, which is the most frequently supported analog signal format system supported by TVs of a similar spec and age to the 55UB856. The analog signal format systems "PAL" and "SECAM B" are also supported by this LG television.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 55UB856 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 55UB856 also do not feature OLED technology.

It is worth considering alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the 55EG9609, or the 65EG9609 both from LG which is also higher rated.

Quite High Annual Energy Consumption
