Sober but in line with current trends. LG has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
In short, the LG has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the LG 49UN73906LЕ is revealed.

The screen of the LG 49UN73906LЕ

The LG has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
LG remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
The LG television set displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.

Finally, LG has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
