The television market is quite competitive and this does not seem to change in many years, and the main brands continue to release new models that aim to meet the greatest number of demands. Today we want to take a look at what the LG NANO79 offers .

An interesting option for those looking for a good image within the mid-range. Obviously the cost of this model will be a little higher than that offered by some similar televisions. However, it may be worth the investment for the quality that LG has .

Exterior design of the LG NANO79

We are offered a good design that seems effective to place it in any environment without losing its beauty.

If we like something about the LG 65NANO79, it is that it has a good appearance that stands out regardless of the placement we give it. For starters, we have a hefty 65-inch size that seems to be ideal for both medium and large rooms or rooms due to its dimensions.

One recommendation that we can make is to purchase the VESA bracket that allows us to install the TV in a simpler way, in fact, with this we can place it directly on the wall , so it will look much better. And this is because the front is the most attractive.

Thanks to the fact that its bezels are thin and allow to enjoy a greater elegance that is combined with its black chassis, generating a great presence that is transmitted from any angle. The back is nice for giving us a more complete and worked elaboration .

Connectivity

We have the essential connections for a good experience. For example, its three HDMI inputs that we can use to connect external devices. We also have two USBs that stand out for allowing us to record and play. Likewise, we have an Ethernet port .

Which is quite useful to enjoy a better internet connection. Other available options are its RF inputs and its optical output. It should be noted that we have DVB-T2 / C / S2 tuners . In the wireless issue we highlight having Wi-Fi , Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA .

Image quality and general functions of the LG 65NANO79

We come to the most important issue of the LG 65NANO793PB , and that is that unlike other models this is more focused on the image, therefore, we are going to find an interesting variety of aspects that end up being important. For starters, we have a 4K definition .

Which is accompanied by nanotechnology in which nanoparticles gradually improve colors, likewise, apply a filter and eliminate all kinds of imperfections. That is, the colors will be quite clear and accurate on the screen . As a result we have a vivid image.

It has the Nano cinema function that takes advantage of technologies such as HDR that allow us to enjoy an atmosphere close to the big screen. As if that were not enough, we will receive a brightness control through artificial intelligence , so we will enjoy a professional image.

This is because the light sensor measures ambient light conditions and then the processor adjusts the tone mapping to achieve optimum brightness. Another interesting function is the scaling that improves the content in 2K resolution approaching a higher definition.

All this is possible thanks to the 4K compatible quad-core processor that improves the quality of any scene. And this is because it eliminates image distortion and allows you to display richer, more natural colors. The only negative is that its backlight is a bit weak .

Sound

We must accept that the least striking thing about this television is in the audio quality, since we are only going to have two integrated speakers that barely reach 20W . This is normal to see in the mid-range, however it falls short on more demanding content.

Luckily we have some enhancement technologies that certainly help. Here we highlight the presence of Dolby Atmos and Ultra Surround that seek to give us a more immersive experience. However, our recommendation is that you purchase a sound bar.

Smart TV / software review and more highlights

We have webOS, a fairly complete system that allows us to enjoy different functions that will be really useful for your entertainment.

One of the biggest attractions of the LG NANO79 is that it has the most recent version of webOS that improves its optimization and security. As if that were not enough, we are going to enjoy an interesting application catalog that has the most popular options of the moment.

It turns out that this model has the Nano games and Nano sports functions that will improve the experience in both cases, since the television adjusts to the needs that this type of content demands . Likewise, we have sports alerts in case you are watching other content.

An application that we like too much is ThinQ AI that improves our experience when viewing the television. Here we can choose our favorite voice assistant and control certain functions , so we enjoy a better order that is combined with comfort and control.

Likewise, we are offered personalized content suggestions according to what we commonly see, thus we achieve easier access, in addition, we are allowed to control all connected devices. In case you want to transmit with an iPhone, iPad or Mac we have Apple AirPlay 2 .
