This is one brilliant piece of equipment. Bought on the launch day and it is just awesome. Superb picture quality. The details are just brilliant. I am lost for words regarding the quality of this product.
Moving on to the installation, it is really easy and you can do it yourself unless it is a wall mount, which requires the installation team. The LG installation team was quick and responsive and came to install the product on the day of the delivery itself, but I had already installed it and they just checked it provided a demo, updated my warranty and cleared my doubts.
Also, you don't need a magic remote unless you want to use the voice control functionality and the AI gimmicks. If you want to use the mouse scrolling you can download the LG Smart ThinQ app on your phone and it's all done.
However there is one issue, as this is not an Android based TV, casting is not supported on some devices namely Moto phones, but it works with all Android One devices and YouTube cast works on all devices too. Also the app store is a bit poor as apps like JioTV, AirtelTV and Hooq are not available. Anyways hooq related issues can be resolved with a premium hotstar subscription and the quality of stream on hotstar is better than hooq itself. It is also important to note that the web browser is below average as it doesn't support a lot of web technologies.
To sum up this long review, if you want a TV in your house, this is the one to buy.
