Picture Quality

In term of color reproduction, with 4 color sub-pixels technology, LG OLED E6P series can delivers color gamut more than 94% DCI of P3 color space. Additionally, it also supports 10 bit color that delivers much richer color tones than 8 bit panel. As comparison, 10 bit panels can delivers more than 1 billion shades of color while 8 bits color only delivers about 16 million shades of color. Of course this makes color gradation on 10 bit panel looks much smoother and finer than 8 bit panels. As the note, to get Ultra HD Premium certification, a 4K TV must delivers color gamut more than 90% DCI P3 color spaces and supports 10 bit depth of color.  And with the contrast and color performance offered, of course LG E6P series deserves to get Ultra HD certification.

LG OLED E6P

As we see on the specification table above, LG E6P is powered by “Perfect Mastering Engine” that supports HDR 10 and Dolby Vision.  For HDR 10, as discussed above, there is no issue on OLED E6P when displaying HDR10 contents.  But for Dolby Vision, there is a bit issue on peak brightness and color. Yu need to know, Dolby Vision set higher standardization of display specs than HDR 10 i.e. 10000 nits of peak brightness with 4000 nits current target, 0.0005 nits of black level, Rec.2020 color space, and 12 bit depth of color.  From all standardization set by Dolby, OLED E6P only meets black level standardization.

Motion Control

LG OLED E6PWhen handling fast motion images, LG OLED E6P also has done its job perfectly. This mean there is no motion blur noticeable when it used for watching contents with fast scenes like sports or video games. A bit issue is when it plays 24p contents via 60p signals from streaming sources like fire TV, Apple TV or others,  OLED E6P cannot remove judder completely. But when it is playing 24 contents via 60i signals from Cable or satellite box, its performance is really perfect. This means there is no judder. The perfect performance is also showed by LG E6 when playing 24p signals like movies from Blu-Ray or DVD.

UHD Up-scaling

Although this time had passed several years since 4K TV mass-produced for public, but the availability of 4K contents in the market is still scarce. This means most of the contents that available in the market still have 1080p to lower resolution. For anticipate this issue, LG OLED E6P is equipped with great performance UHD Up-Scaling engine called “Tru 4K Upscaler” embedded on its picture engine. The performance is really great. When it displays videos from 480p sources like DVD, the result looks very good in 4K quality, moreover for 1080p source like Blu-Ray movies, the result certainly is much smoother. This even is much better than when they are displayed on full HD 1080p TV. With this great performance in UHD Up-scaling engine, this allows you to enjoy all of the contents in 4K quality amazingly like your intent when you would to buy 4K TV.

3D Performance

While most of TV manufactures have removed 3D technology from their 2016 lineup, LG still retains 3D technology on E6P series. Of course this will become its own advantage of E6P series because there are not many 4K TVs that comes with HDR ability and 3D technology at once. Samsung even has removed 3D technology from their entire 2016 lineup. In the box, LG OLED E6P includes two pairs 3D glasses where you can buy additional passive 3D glasses with cheap price if it turns out the number was still lacking for all members of your family.

Smart TV

For offering attractive and fast smart TV platform, LG E6 series features WebOS 3.0 as its smart TV platform. It is third version of WebOS that first released in 2014. In its third version, there are some upgrades that make its performance better, revision on some issues happened on previous versions, and some addition features, but still retains usability and simplicity. Selecting between apps is fast, as well as boot time. New features that are no less interesting is about Magic Zoom that allows you to magnify certain areas without destroying the image quality. Additionally, there is also “Magic Mobile Connection” that allows you to stream any content from your smart phone onto your TV easily. There are also many demanded apps such as Amazon Video, Netflix, YouTube and many more that allows you to stream video contents.

Sound Quality

Although it comes with Slim TV design, but LG OLED E6P series still offers good audio performance. This cannot be separated from great performance of built-in 2.2 channel sound bar behind it. Not half-hearted, its sound bar is designed by premium audio manufacturer Harman Kardon. This course offers very impressive sound quality with good handling in mid range and high frequency and powerful bass performance. When used for listening to music, the sound is heard balanced between bass, middle and treble. The separation between the each channel of stereo is also much felt. And with 40 watts total audio sound output, it delivers quite loud sound without becoming harsh.

Connectivity

LG OLED E6PLike most of high class 4K TVs that available in the market, LG OLED E6P also equipped with 4 HDMI 2.0 and 3 USB ports as its major connectivity. There are also 1 Composite IN, 1 Component In, RF (terrestrial), 1 Ethernet, 1 optical, 1 mini jack RS232. This number of course is quite enough to cover your HD Devices or other and meet the necessary requirements for connectivity for this time. All of the HDMI and USB ports are installed on the left side of panel while the other ports are installed on back of panel.
