Tech Week score:
Every year we come across more advanced televisions that long ago we would not even have imagined existed. A brand that is constantly developing new models is LG , and this time they present us with a really interesting television in many aspects. We talk more specifically about the LG Nano96.
This equipment has given a lot to talk about, since it seems to be perfect for the most demanding users, however, we must mention that it is not a unique model, since it will also have some negative points. However, the LG Nano96 has the exact ingredients to meet the highest expectations.
Exterior design of the LG Nano96
We have a different design that seeks to maintain its good appearance at all times
It was to be expected that the LG 65NANO96 will present a striking design, which ends up pleasing us a lot due to its more modern construction that gives it a different style than what we are used to seeing. First of all, we find an ideal size for rooms or large rooms , since we are talking about 65 inches.
It is offered in a quite remarkable Dark Steel color , in addition, its front gives us thin bezels that will give the TV more elegance no matter where we see it from. This achieves that the screen has a much greater useful space , therefore, the content that we see will be reproduced in a better way without any hindrance.
It has a central support that gives it the appearance of a monitor, it offers us good stability regardless of the surface where it is placed. Although we prefer to hang it on the wall to fully receive its beauty . The rear part gives us a clean construction that orders the connector box so that the cables do not get in the way.
We will have the necessary connectors for a good experience, yes, surely ports with better versions could be added, especially for the type of television that we are analyzing. Here we find four HDMI 2.0 inputs that will allow us to connect different devices and send their signal to the television. Nor can we ignore its three USB 2.0 ports that among its greatest benefits we have the option to record.
There are other physical connections that also become important at certain times and depending on the type of use that we are going to give the television. Here we are going to find its Ethernet port, its satellite input, its audio output and its antenna. In the specifications table we find the different tuners that are available. In the wireless section there will be no problem, since we have Wi-Fi , Bluetooth and DLNA .
Image quality and functions in general of the LG Nano96
Without a doubt, the most important thing about the LG 65NANO966PA is its image quality that seeks to give us an experience like never seen before. In this case we have an 8K resolution that gives us four times more power than 4K, therefore, in theory we should enjoy more detailed images that translate into greater realism .
If we look for a disadvantage in this section, we will find that its panel is Direct LED, which may seem a bit counterproductive, since normally it gives us a little poor backlighting , especially in very dark or bright environments. Considering this we must look for a different and better placement.
In this case we have the benefit of receiving different technologies that will improve our experience. Among the most important we come across AI Picture Pro , Advanced Color Enhancer and Nano Color that will give us a 100% color volume, therefore, we are going to enjoy more vivid and intense colors with much deeper details.
Contrast also receives an incredible improvement thanks to the Advanced Contrast Enhancer and Ultra Luminance Pro functions that will put it in a sharper and more precise state, in addition, the brightness is also improved a lot. For a good movie watching experience we have support for Dolby Vision , HDR10 Pro and HLG Pro .
We received an acceptable audio quality which we think could be even better, however we cannot complain too much about this. The first thing we see is that there are two speakers with a power of 20W , likewise, there are two subwoofers of the same quality. With this we will receive sufficient experience at all times.
And to complement this we have also found an interesting number of technologies that are going to greatly improve the quality that we already have. Here we have very interesting options such as AI Sound Pro , Clear Voice Pro , Dolby Atmos and LG Sound Sync that will give us a fairly immersive and clean experience no matter what.
LG Nano96 software review / Smart TV and more
We have an excellent system that offers us very interesting things for your entertainment
The LG NanoCell 65NANO966PA equips the latest version of the webOS system, therefore, we are going to enjoy all the new benefits that have been included. The former are noticeable in optimization and security , since we now have a more fluid and intuitive platform that will completely facilitate the use of all its functions.
Likewise, we are going to find a fairly extensive catalog of applications that adds quite popular options such as Netflix , Prime Video , YouTube , HBO , Disney + , Movistar and Apple TV . Obviously there will be many more applications to choose from, however, with these we have a large catalog of movies and series.
The LG 65NANO96 has compatibility with Google Assistant and Alexa that will allow us to control and make use of some functions using only our voice. Nor should we forget that it works with Apple AirPlay 2, which offers us the possibility of transmitting content from an iPhone or iPad with a fairly high efficiency.
