Overview

When LED TVs arrived in a blitzkrieg of publicity several years ago, many consumers believed, mistakenly and with a lot of help from the advertisers, that this technology was automatically better than LCD. While LED lighting has some benefits, it's not necessarily going to give you better picture quality. The LG 47LS4600 LED is a case in point: when compared directly with the "LCD" Samsung E550 the LG suffers from much lighter blacks and desaturated colors.

While the LS4600 has some attractive design touches, like a slim bezel and rotating stand, the television's other problems, like a blotchy backlight and poor bright-room performance, mean that it's not a great TV. When you consider that a TV like the TCL P60 can outperform it in most picture tests at half the price, the LG LS4600 becomes a very poor deal.

Picture quality

The LS4600 was a relatively poor performer. The one-two punch of terrible black levels and intrusive backlight clouding means that for anything else than oversaturated computer animation, the TV just doesn't have the picture pep to justify the price. Color was a mixed bag, accurate yet undersaturated, and while video processing was a very good, it couldn't make up for this set's other issues. Read full review

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
