Just bought 43UH7500 last week. It comes with webOS 3.0
Can it have an update to webOS 3.5 like the model in 2017?
Customer loyalty will be enhanced if the manufacturer provides such after sales service.
I'm checking out the UJ7700 with WebOS 3.5 and figured I'd share some thoughts.
First, I have found it to be very snappy and fun to use. It seems that everyday I find a new feature or use. Changing channels is quick, the extra content like Cast, YouTube Videos, and Web Browser is nice. I haven't used WebOS before so it might just be very similar to recent versions.
I'm a developer and enthusiast so I have started poking around with the apps and capabilities. As far as downloadable apps go, these are not available in WebOS 3.5: Pandora, Plex, ESPN, and SlingTV. The IP control is very good so I can do things like Turn On/Off, change inputs, and change volume.
Integration with iPhone is terrible... the app has to re-pair constantly and I would much rather have AirPlay. It's interesting though to navigate your phone from the TV.
A feature I was hoping for is to be able to record Live TV to a USB hard drive – correct me if it is possible to do this. I will probably never use the features to magnify, zoom, or capture the screen. I would like to be able to Pause Live TV or record some shows.
The Photos/Videos/Music work pretty well with my DLNA server. Plex DLNA server shows up and it's easy to find my recent TV and Movies here. I've compiled a music 'My Playlist' but I'm curious if you can have more than one playlist. Is the TV downloading this music or streaming it from Plex DLNA? I like how the music plays over the content and has a floating interface. As others have said, the DLNA UI could use an upgrade to rectangular images instead of squares. The MultiView UI could be updated too... looks like a computer instead of a TV.
The Magic Remote knows which input you are on. I have an AppleTV 3 and the remote can control it. With AppleTV 3 though, learning the magic remote was terrible. I had to use another learning remote to capture the Magic Remote and then have the AppleTV 3 learn from it. Holding the Down or Up button does not repeat correctly on the AppleTV 3 – it just goes really slow instead of fast. It would be nice if WebOS had a setting for those IR commands built-in its list. If you have a workaround please share. I'm holding out for an AppleTV with 4k.
The TV itself? Pure black is black, colors are incredible, but titles on a black screen are just ok.
A final thought... Is there a manual for WebOS 3.5??? I've had to basically discover all these features and questions myself.
