greetings,

I decided to buy an LG smart 3D TV 55 inch class , but I am confused about something and I would looooove to get some opinions.

within my budget it's down to 2 options : 1st option the 55LB652T which is smart tv full hd 3d with web os the latest UI , 2nd option the 55UB830T which is smart tv UHD 4k 3d but with netcast .5 the previous UI.

so you see my problem, i want the uhd and the web os... it would be really awesome if LG makes update from netcast 4.5 to web os

My advice will be just ignore smart TVs or 4K TVs in a whole, get a media player which can do all that. But the truth is that's not that easy to do. Almost everyone want one system that does everything.

So what I would tell you is, do your best to ignore LG webos, because you would regret it at the end. Nothing works as advertised. A lot of bugs which never gets fixed.

If you still want a 4K then get a Samsung. I'm not a fun of Samsung but their TVs function as advertised. They don't get stuck or get out of memory error when streaming or watching satellite TV.

ok here's what I did guys and I would really appreciate your help, I went to the stores and I bought 2 TVs they are saying that I have 7 days return policy, so I have one week to play with these TVs and then keep one and get refund for the other.

I bought the LG 55UB850 ( uhd,3d, smart tv webOS)  and the samsung 55HU8500 ( the flat nOT the curved version, also uhd, 3d, smart tv )  both Tvs with magic remotes and all... now here's my thoughts so far the samsung os has the flash player so it can read any video without an issue the LG does not because of the abscence of the flash player!! for the picture quality I have to say it's a draw they are both pretty good, except for the fact the LG uses the IPS so it's more solid and robust panel but I am not sure that it's a great plus for home use... I saw few articles or reviews stating that the IPS has better viewing angles or vice vers ca  but I didn't notice that... now I have to say the LG magic remote is better also I noticed that pointer in the samsung os disappears when you enter some apps so you have to go back to the old way by clicking to move the pointer but on the LG it's always working inside all apps and I found that to be a big plus.

now regarding the operating systems it was hard for me because each one has its own advantages but generally I think the web OS is slightly better though I couldn't find multi screen function on the web OS unlike the samsung smat hub where I can have 2 screens simultaneously like web browsing and watching tv at the same time...

bottom line  guys I am confused and still not sure what to chose so please help me out and if you know any other details let me know I am going to take your advise

thanks a lot

Well to help you make the choice, you should try this also:

1) go to the YouTube apps of both TVs and try to play a video longer than and hour and see what happens.

2) if you've got a tablet or even your phone, try to steam a movie to the TV's also for an hour.

3) do the same with the browser. Either from YouTube or any other site. Search for movies, videos longer than 45min.

4) when playing movies, pause and restart and also change apps, to test the multifunction capabilities if LG. It didn't always work as expected.

Cheers.

Dude every webos 1.x FW has got that problem. So if it has webos then it gets out of memory.

Viktor:

- while the TV was running

- I unplugged the power cord directly from TV

- after a few minutes put back in

- started the TV

 

Hope it will help you too.

 

Otherwise

 We have been notified of an "out of memory" and moreover, it has already been fixed in the new update 04.45.04. Unfortunately, this firmware was not yet available at the server update, so make software update will be available only via USB drive. To update the software, please go to the link below and then select the tab "Update" and download the file Software_File (Version_04.45.04) .zip. To update required: Flash card up to 32 GB, formatted in FAT32. On this map, create a folder LG_DTV and write in it the file that you unpacked from the zip-archive. After this, insert the flash card into the TV and it will automatically prompted to update. To all the latest updates to take effect, you must reset the TV. To do this, open the Settings - General - Reset to factory.

Stop miss informing people.

How in the hell will unplugging the TV help with a memory leak?

Concerning the firmware version you just gave, the only thing it does is change the out of memory error with a different message; "app needs to be reset to free up memory"(how is that a fix?).

Also nobody has yet to confirm webos 2.0 hasn't got the out off memory issue too, so there's no need to be excited.

You sound like an lg fun boy or an lg correspondent. Which are you?

Lg is just using CNET to prevent people from returning their TVs on time. And therefore falling out of the warranty period.

      Opening the web browser app, and going to photos.google.com shows a screen with a "go to google photos" button, but nothing works, the button does not respond and the only solution is to shutdown the whole tv, commander buttons do nothing.  64uq800006lb with latest firmware.

      TV model: 49 UH770T 
      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?
      regards,

      Can someone inform me as to when (what generation) they removed the smart zoom feature from their TV's? I want to purchase a new OLED TV but I noticed their smart zoom feature was missing from their remote control. I have a 2016 LG TV that still has it and I use it all the time.

      LG Acquires AppleMango Together with GS Energy and GS Neotek,
      Securing Advanced EV Charger Development Capabilities

      SEOUL, June 27, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced it has acquired South Korean electric vehicle (EV) charger solutions provider, AppleMango Co., Ltd., jointly with GS Energy and GS Neotek. The acquisition is expected to accelerate the growth of LG’s EV charging solution business and enable the company to take advantage of future business opportunities.
      This strategic move, combined with LG’s own expertise and wealth of experience in both B2C and B2B segments, will enable the company to create fully-featured charging stations boasting a user-friendly interface and real-time control/management. LG continues to strengthen its EV charging solution business leveraging its exceptional digital signage technologies – specifically, its IP-rated outdoor digital display with sturdy, dust- and water-proof enclosure.
      Established in 2019, AppleMango has developed proprietary technologies and systems, including a slim, fast charger, to meet the rising global demand for EV charging solutions. In addition to the company’s market-leading charging tech, LG will secure access to the necessary operational infrastructure by working closely with GS Energy and GS Neotek. Both GS companies have considerable experience in operating EV charging stations and related businesses.
      The new acquisition will help LG to become an integrated solutions provider, bringing together its new charger development capabilities and existing in-house-developed EV charging management system. Moreover, the move is expected to create synergy with LG’s ongoing efforts in the area of vehicle components, including the development and supply of EV batteries and adjacent products, such as energy storage system (ESS) and energy management solutions.
      “The EV charging market is expected to grow rapidly due to the surging demand for more eco-friendly vehicles,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our know-how and experience in the B2B sector, we will offer customized, integrated vehicle charging solutions for diverse customers, enhancing the competitiveness of our existing business and ensuring our readiness for future opportunities.”
      LG now boasts a comprehensive EV business portfolio, with the recently-launched EV charging solution business joining other LG-owned concerns, including the LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, ZKW Group and the LG Magna e-Powertrain joint venture. This year, LG will establish an EV charger production line at LG Digital Park in South Korea, and aims to provide customized charging solution for various settings, such as private residences, shopping malls, hotels and public institutions, in the near future.
