A build quality that exceeds expectations

LG 50UN7300PUF: 50 '' 4K Smart TV with LG Magic Remote, webOS 4.5, AirPlay 2 and Wi-Fi 5

Perfect for your living room or bedroom


This Smart TV has the aesthetic benefits of belonging to the LG brand, as it boasts a robust and elegant chassis, with a matte black finish, whose greatest advantage lies in the narrow bezel that surrounds the 50-inch panel. 

In addition, its double support - formed by two “V”-shaped legs located at both ends - has the necessary resistance to allow it to be installed on flat surfaces, without fear of an accidental fall. 

Optionally, its compatibility with VESA mounts enables it to be anchored to the wall, so you can mount it in the living room or even in the bedroom.


A visual experience that won't disappoint


With regard to the screen, customer reviews have been quick to praise the sharpness, enhanced contrast, and color fidelity that's delivered by the 50-inch 4K Screen, whether you're looking to enjoy movies, series, sports, or video games, this screen offers up an immersive experience that's hard to come by at this price point. 

This is possible thanks to its compatibility with the most popular HDR formats, rescaling function for non-4K content natively (which turns non 4K content to 4k), noise reduction technology, as well as the integration of 10 unique picture modes that allow for a wide array of settings.


A smart 5-star platform


webOS 3.0: Quickly access your content


The LG 50UN7300PUF arrives under the operating system;webOS 3.0. Boasting a minimalist, intuitive, and easy-to-use interface, the new version of the OS is managed by the LG Magic Remote, an intelligent remote control that allows you to access what you like the most just by asking for it through voice commands. 

Also worth noting, this smart TV is compatible with the most popular voice assistants (Alexa and Google Assistant, with Alexa being built into the TV Set ), and, among other applications, incorporates Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, HBO, Apple TV, Hulu, and Disney +. 

Basically, there's no way you're not going to enjoy this TV Set with all the apps it supports, add to that the streaming support for Android and Apple devices and you've got yourself an unbeatable entertainment experience.

Stream directly from your Apple Devices

One of its most compelling features in terms of software is the integration of Airplay 2 technology. Essentially, this means that you can stream content directly from your Apple device onto the television set without the need to own an Apple TV on the side. 

This means that you can stream anything from browser tabs to Apple TV series and Apple Music. A very nifty feature that will save you a bundle, though buying an Apple TV also offers up several other benefits that you should consider.

A sound that can be improved effortlessly


Thanks to the surround mode offered by Ultra Surround technology, you can enjoy sound more similar to that of movie theaters, as long as you connect an external sound bar, since the power of the integrated speakers is only 20W (RMS). It should be noted that this TV allows you to connect up to two external speakers simultaneously to offer an even more immersive experience.

 If it's a cinematic experience on the cheap what you're after we would be remiss if we didn't recommend Tronsmart's T6 Plus speakers, when you put those bad boys with True Wireless Sound set to the 3D mode you'll be blown away. That said, sound quality is good for a TV set. 


Perfectly balanced connectivity


Connect your multimedia devices without restrictions


Connectivity-wise we've got the aforementioned AirPlay 2 to mirror the screen with Apple devices, Bluetooth 5.0 technology to connect speakers or other peripherals and Wi-Fi 5 and RJ-45 connections to surf the internet, or, you know, to use just about every feature available on the TV set. 

In addition, it mounts 3 HDMI outputs compatible with ARC and CEC, a conventional video output (AV) shared with component input, 2 USB ports, an optical digital audio output, an RF connector for antennas, and an analog and digital TV tuner. (DVB-T2 / C / S2).


Conclusion, opinions and where we can buy it cheaper


In short, after seeing its most outstanding features in detail, it is clear that the LG 50UN7300PUF in review meets everything that the average user needs when consuming multimedia content at home, for a very affordable price point. 

All in all, this model not only delivers a crisp and colorful picture quality, a pleasant sound experience, and extensive connectivity, but it also boasts a very easy-to-use user interface, especially for those new to the smart TV scene, which makes it a TV suitable for all users.
