Loewe Bild V.55 Review: This 4K Ultra HD TV is worth a look

Loewe is a German firm that unfortunately has lost interest in many countries because all its models have high costs. Today we will talk about the high-end, since there are still some televisions on the market. Among them we find the Loewe Bild V.55 that stands out for offering superior quality to that of many of its competitors. Unfortunately, it costs almost $4,000, a price that is not worth it for a 2020 model. However, before mentioning anything, we are going to analyze its performance in detail.

Exterior design of the Loewe Bild V.55

Aesthetically it is a pleasant television that shows us quality even in its construction

One of the main attractions of this model is that it has a well-crafted design that, despite having been released two years ago, shows a modern style gaining ground in the physical section compared to other models, which ends up being favorable .

We are facing the 55-inch version that seems to us to be the right size for medium-sized rooms or rooms, although they also look nice in large spaces . We can choose to acquire the VESA support that seems like a good option for a better installation.

We recommend placing the TV on the wall, so we have a better view of the front, which from our point of view is the most attractive part due to the inclusion of thin bezels that show a more complete screen, in addition, it allows you to enjoy an elegant appearance .

It includes a black chassis that has a glossy finish showing a fresh style and enhancing presence from any angle. The back stands out for having a less bulky space that helps placement . We note that the construction is of high quality.

Connectivity

Despite being a high-end model, it does not have any HDMI 2.1 input, which seems to us to be a disadvantage, since currently most televisions in that category integrate at least one. In this case we will have four that despite this offer good performance.

Where we do have a difference is in the USB ports , since one is version 3.0, providing fast data transfer that greatly improves the experience. With these ports we can play different content, although the biggest attraction is the possibility of recording it.

We are going to have other interesting physical connections that allow certain activities to be carried out. Here we highlight the presence of an Ethernet port , an audio output , a headphone jack and an antenna . Another favorable point is the compatibility with DVB-T2/C/S2 .

To complete the good connectivity of this model, we receive a dual-band Wi-Fi connection that ensures us to make the most of the speed offered by our internet service. Other wireless alternatives that enhance the experience are Bluetooth and DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general

The most attractive thing about the Loewe Bild V.55 is its image, which has been highly optimized to get the most out of any content. To begin with, it presents a 4K resolution that by power seeks to improve the details, generating precise and more realistic scenes.

To achieve this quality, an OLED panel has been implemented that greatly improves the experience compared to inferior backlights. First of all, we notice pure blacks that remain regardless of the environment , likewise, the colors are deeper .

Another advantage is that the response time will be very low, in fact, it stays at 1ms , which is perfect for sports, video games and action movies. To this we must add a maximum frequency of 120 Hz , therefore, we will see totally fluid movements.

We also noticed fuller viewing angles that resemble those offered by an IPS panel. Unfortunately there will be some negative points, for example, this panel causes the cost to be high , in addition, it may be the case that the useful life is more limited .

We must say that this model does not have many improvement technologies, however, it integrates some that improve certain parameters a little. Likewise, it presents compatibility with HDR10 , HLG and Dolby Vision that improve the image, yes, the content must be compatible.

Sound

Something that surprises us a lot is that it has a total power of 120 W that is divided into four speakers, which are positioned differently so that they cover all the spaces in the room. This quality will suffice for any content .

As if that were not enough, it has some enhancement technologies that provide a more immersive and precise experience. Among the most notable we have Dolby Digital Plus and Automatic Volume Control . Without a doubt, the sound section ends up being the most surprising thing about the television.

Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features

It has its own system, which superimposes fluidity, although we still have a duty in certain sections

The Loewe Bild V.55 includes its own system known as Loewe OS , which is an attractive bet, however, it has much to improve, especially in the content it offers. What stands out the most is the optimization and security caused by a fluid and interactive system.

The app store seems acceptable to us, as it has several options that are still popular today, however, it lacks some new platforms. It offers voice control which makes it a bit easier to use certain activities and improves control .

This will be the most attractive part of the system, since it does not offer many extra functions, therefore, it may seem like a better idea to acquire a TV Box that improves the experience and gives us access to more possibilities.
