Supports Smart TV

The 49UB856 supports smart TV, as do most of the other TVs that have been on the market for more than a year.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions which support smart TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UN60JU7100[plb_3185182_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The energy efficiency classification of this TV is B. The average 5 year running cost of the 49UB856 is £199 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the most expensive 20% of all 474 4K and 8K TVs that were launched more than a year ago.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 49UB856 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other televisions of a comparable age and type to the 49UB856 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the Samsung UN65JS9500[plb_2756557_price], or the LG 105UC9[plb_2828825_price] is also worth considering.

Only Supports Three Analog Signal Format Systems

The number of analog signal format systems supported by the LG 49UB856 is more than most TVs of a comparable type and age to it. This LG TV supports an NTSC analog signal format system, which is the most frequently supported analog signal format system supported by 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 49UB856.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were launched more than a year ago, the LG 49UB856 does not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the 55EG9609[pl_2899573_price], or the 65EG9609[pl_2938944_price] both from LG which also has a higher rating.
