Review: LG UM7400 Ultra HD 4K Smart TV

Guest blog by Rhiannon,

LG’s new smart 4K ultra HD UM7400 is a great addition to LG’s range of TVs which is packed full of useful features. Customers will be pleased to note that LG have provided a ‘magic remote’ alongside its myriad of smart technology. Available in three sizes, the frame is quite thin which, if the TV is wall mounted, will look great. With several connection points on the side of the TV, accessibility also shouldn’t be a problem regardless of its location or set up.

Upon opening the box, you can see the detachable pedestal stand and mains lead. Once the polystyrene has been lifted out of the box, the television can easily be slid out alongside the remote and instruction booklet.

One of the greatest features on the LG UM7400 is the use of Active HDR. For those not ‘in the know’, HDR is the next best thing for 4K content. It works by heightening the pictures dynamic range (the contrast between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks) creating the ultimate image for your favourite films, TV shows and games.

This realistic image is partnered with DTS Virtual:X to make the sound as great as the picture. This feature truly takes the surround sound to the next level and fully immerses you into the home cinema experience – perfect for film & sports fanatics!

All of the top content is included on the LG UM7400 with its smart features. It is well equipped with Amazon Prime, Netflix, BBC iPlayer etc. The Freeview Play app also has its uses and provides a wide selection of free content and is very easy to use with effortless navigational tools. You can also cycle back through the week’s telly for anything you may have missed. If you can’t find anything suitable to watch, this range allows you to mirror your smart phone to the screen. This feature is perfect if you are a fussy watcher!

Using LG’s ‘magic remote’, you can change channels via gestures and points, or just simply use your voice thanks to LG’s ThinQ technology. It doesn’t stop there! With Google Assistant compatibility, you can ask your TV useful information like what is the weather or your personal schedule for the day.

Overall, the LG UM7400 is a great TV packed with plenty of new features. It creates an amazing picture quality thanks to its 4K resolution & Active HDR technology which matches the quality of sound from the set. This TV is a great all rounder with plenty of tech to please the whole family! Take a look at the TV today on our website or visit your nearest store to see the great results in person.
