Great for sports and games

The LG display works great for sports, and boasts lightning-fast response to the enjoyment of gaming enthusiasts.

Our opinion:

The LG UK6950 delivers a sharp image with good colour rendition and also has smooth movements. It can also boast of a game mode with super low lag.
The LG display has limited black level and contrast, and does not support the Dolby Vision HDR format.

65UK6950 is a midrange model in the LG’s 2018 series. In terms of design, this is a slim TV with a silver grey frame with a brushed finish. Some of the contacts are sideways, while others face backward. The lower part of the TV is somewhat thicker than the upper part, and sticks out more. Therefore, this TV is not necessarily the most practical or aesthetically pleasing to wall mount.

Usability and features

Like the other LG screens in the test, UK6950 uses the latest webOS 4.0 operating system with Magic Remote. The control is great to use, and LG has made sure that the mouse pointer works for the different apps as well. UK6950 differs slightly from the more expensive LG models in that it does not have the same wide format support. It must do without support for Dolby Vision and Technicolor video formats. On the other hand, one gets a superfast game mode: We measured it all the way down to 4.4 milliseconds of 1080p resolution, which is a new record.

Picture quality

The LG 65UK6950 uses a fairly ordinary 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) image panel without any distinctive features. It is clearly aimed at those who want good picture quality without paying a fortune. Here you get a sharp image with lots of detail, and the LG screen is also good for viewing sports. The colour rendition is of the aggressive kind with lots of nuances – created for sports and action. LG also has included its own picture mode dedicated to football, but it has unnecessarily exaggerated colours for our taste. The grass is excessively green! However, the standard mode is fine, and retains a good viewing angle thanks to the IPS panel.
The Black level and contrast are average. Dark scenes become slightly grey, and there is not much kick in the brightness. In addition, the local dimming feature is very grainy, with large areas clearly brighter than others. This is clearly not the screen for those who want full enjoyment of the new HDR movies, but for sports it works perfectly.

Sound quality

The LG display has a fairly simple sound system with standard, submounted speakers.
The voice rendering is clear and fine, but not as defined and strong as the more expensive models. In this case, we recommend a separate soundbar.

Conclusion

This low-cost model from LG has brilliant picture quality that is well suited for sports. In addition, it tops this by having the fastest game mode of the test. When it comes to movies and series, there are screens out there with even higher contrast, but they also cost a lot more money. Overall, therefore, the LG UK6950 is a good buy.
