Personally I have worked in the tech world long enough to already have realised all the points made by the author and have adjusted my expectations accordingly (not just with my LG Smart TV but many other products).

Good article. Its very true and goes inline with why people complaining that their old tvs cant get an update, who may not realize that every year hardware is updated, like buying a computer. Eventually it will be outdated. Back in the day you could buy a tube tv and sit on it for 10 years. Nowadays, screens and hardware is accelerating so fast. 8 years ago I bough a 50" plasma and still use it today. It's not smart and only has 720p. Do I throw it away for a 4k and smart interface because I want newer features? Probably at some point.

I always tell people with computers and laptops, don't spend on the top of the line hardware because it will be outdated in a year or two. I bought my 50" plasma on black friday 8 years ago for $600.  Today I can get a 50" 4K LG smart tv for $299 on sale!

Hi ajmboy,

Indeed the internal hardware in TVs out-dates very quickly at the moment, more so than mobile phones.  My sister & brother-in-law have LG running the old NetCast OS and they have just added a ROKU box to it as the on-board software is beginning to show its age.   Why did they not just buy a new TV?  Well the picture quality is still great, it is only 1080p but there again they do not have anything that requires 4K, and more importantly the ROKU only cost £20.  I reckon if I can get three years use out of webOS on my 2016 model LG I will be doing OK, if things get really buggy with the OS after that then I will just add a 4K ROKU.  For me it is more the quality of the picture that the feature set the TV comes with, I would probably even look to see if LG does a 'dumb' TV next time I need to purchase one.

      My Lg TV which has the smart functions and magic remote is playing up. 
      I often use web browser or you tube or similar apps to watch videos etc. 
      Recently however, it keeps crashing and displays a message to the effect that the memory in the app is low or it need to close to free up more memory? 
      My TV is less then 2 years old and is doing this. I love the telly and the smart features especially the web browser function, however this recent issue is making me think about the longevity of such LG smart TVs and whether I should've spent a few hundred more and got another telly. 
       
      Please can someone advise what I can do to fix this as it takes away the whole point of smart TV. 
      Thanks

      Hello. There is a 43um7600plb TV (2019) . After the WebOS updating  to 05.10.15, the dynamic contrast function does not work. When switching modes (off, low, medium, high), the contrast does not change. Resetting the settings didn't help.

      With one of the most aggressive vaccination campaigns on Earth, Israel has demonstrated the efficacy of the coronavirus vaccine as the country nears herd immunity. With the light emerging at the end of the tunnel for Israelis, LG in Israel saw an opportune moment to celebrate the citizenry’s efforts and the country’s cautious emergence from the darkness of the pandemic.

      So with lockdown restrictions eased and more people returning to life as it used to be, LG Israel felt it was the perfect time for a real live event to celebrate the local launch of LG’s 2021 TV lineup. In cooperation with its exclusive home entertainment product distributor, H.Y.E. Group, LG Israel last month invited 1,100 special guests to see the newest LG TVs in all their vibrant glory.

      Under the theme of LG OLED: The King of TVs, the venue showcased the complete lineup of LG’s newest OLED TVs – LG OLED G1, C1, B1 and A1 – as well as some of the company’s NanoCell and QNED MiniLED TV models. Here, the special guests could see for themselves the just how much better LG’s OLED technology is across various TV sizes, because sometimes you just have to see to believe.

      As a part of the LG’s campaign, the large space was separated into four distinct zones representing key TV segments: sports, cinema, design and gaming. Each interactive area was faithfully designed to emphasize the various elements and unique values the impressive TVs have to offer every kind of viewer.

      With food and drinks galore, attendees sang passionately along during the concert of popular Israeli singer taking to the stage to make it an even more memorable night to remember.

      As one of the region’s first major offline events in more than a year, the electricity in the atmosphere was palpable. Israelis who had been patiently waiting for the end of social distancing were finally able to release all their pent-up energies in one fell swoop. And they had good reason to be hopeful. With one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, Israelis had good reason to start enjoying life again.
      In the meanwhile, LG will continue to pursue unique and safe ways to introduce its innovative products to consumers around the globe.
