Huge mistake I made by buying LG smart TV


The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?

No, I wanted a horse and I paid a high price for a pretty looking donkey.

Unfortunately I was persuaded by the sales hype.

I enjoy watching quite a bit of television but now the screen is damaged by LGs bad programming.

If like many people I had not used any of the SMART TVs capabilities, I would still have ended up with a poor viewing experience.

If you don't want a professionally integrated smart TV with all that goes with it then buy a dumb TV.

A TV is meant for providing an image on a screen. LG is the best for that. If you want to play with apps, get a tablet or pc and mirror your screen. Or even use your phone. 

Don't expect a car to fly. 

Wrong! These devices are supposed to be much more than a mere TV , they are sold as SMART TVs . The 'smart' appellation indicates it is supposed to be much more than an ordinary TV . When I bought mine I expected it to be able to browse the Internet just as I do on a laptop but the LG WebOS system falls far short of anything I have used before. The lack of internal memory and poor memory management means it continually shuts down the browser when using memory intensive apps such as Google map's. The browser home page has fixed areas of strong colour burns marks on the screen unless you continually switch to full screen mode . Even the subtitles have burned the bottom area of the screen , pixel refreshing does repair the damage, I now have to put up with a very low picture quality . I know about electronic hardware and software design and I think the LG designers should be shot! I'm advising all my friends and acquaintances to avoid LG SMART TVs.

      Two of the apps I.e Sony Liv and MX PLAYER ARE not available. You cannot even play Sony Liv through AirPlay as the sonyliv app will not support screen sharing on lg tv . So unfortunate experience.

      When will we get the SONYLIV app on WebOS ? 
      Even the WebOS browser doesn't support playing SONYLIV content due to lack of Flash support. 
      Strangely Chromecast also has issues.
