The highlight of this TV is no doubt the 55in OLED display with support for 4K resolution, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ, and more. By definition, OLED panels come with individual pixels capable of self-illumination without the need for backlighting, which should theoretically result in better contrasts and deeper colours. And let’s just say, in reality too the panel does a fantastic job.
For the purpose of testing, we watched a variety of content from high definition OTT shows, and live sporting events to even playing games on the PlayStation 5. You really appreciate the deep blacks when watching shows like Moon Knight, where the scenes jump from bright outdoor shots to fight scenes at night featuring the caped hero.
Reality shows like Car Masters: Rust to Riches bring to fore the TV’s ability to show colours. The effect of Dolby Vision is visible here due to the bump in brightness and colours. The beautifully customised colours look vibrant on this TV.
Full HD or lower resolution content too look good enough with the TV giving them a natural sense of softness. This is evident when the old folks at home consume content from the traditional cable box.
For gaming, the TV comes with an Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM), which turns on when a gaming console is connected. As the name suggests, this mode is said to improve latency and performance while gaming. The OLED panel brought to life the various outworld planets when playing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on the PlayStation 5. The refresh rate is limited to 60Hz so temper your expectation according to the price.
Complimenting the visual experience is the 30W speaker system with eight drivers and support for Dolby Atmos. For most intents and purposes, the system works well. It can get quite loud, and you do notice that the speakers are tuned to make the voices sound clear. Dolby Atmos adds a sense of depth and spaciousness to the overall sound. That said, to really enjoy the beautiful-looking content on the screen, we would still recommend investing in a soundbar or a home theatre system.
