Scott Wilkinson ... Stuck on a wall

Episode 1368

Scott went to a recent LG TV event and he saw some really great TVs that LG calls darn near perfect. And they're super thin too, with Wallpaper TV is 4mm from the bezel to the wall. So it's almost like a painting. So thin, that it requires a separate box for all the electronics, and the W7 model incorporates a sound bar into that electronics box package. Leo says he'd rather have a monitor that he can bring his own party to. Scott does says to be fair the Soundbar does sound pretty good though.

Should I repair or replace my LG HDTV?

Robert from California
LG HDTV

Robert has an LG HDTV that is only six years and has died. Is it worth repairing? Scott says not really. It's actually cheaper these days to just replace the TV. Robert says that his LG has four HDMI connectors, but he's lucky to find just two in today's modern TVs. Leo suggests just getting an AV Receiver and that will handle the multiple HDMI connectors. Can he trust LG moving forward? Scott says yes.

What TV should I buy?

Stephanie from Arcadia
Samsung UHD TV

Stephanie wants to get a new TV to replace their 7 year old HDTV. Leo says that Vizio makes great TVs, as does Samsung, TCL and HiSense. It depends on what is most important to her. Most of them are smart TVs. She'll have to use an Apple TV to stream from her iPhone, though.

Leo says that LG is the best Smart TV. Samsung's smart TV software isn't very good. Stephanie should also get a Roku. Then it doesn't matter what smart tv you have. Also, moving forward, you want your TV to be UHD Premium standard for the best color and dynamic range.

How can I free up space on my mobile phone?

Jim from Santa Barbara, CA

Episode 1332

Jim's LG phone is constantly being filled up. Leo says that's because it's an 8GB phone and the OS itself takes up over half of it. That's why they can give these phones away for free. Nobody really should sell an 8GB phone.

Jim can clear out temp files and get rid of unused apps, then save all of his photos and videos to Google Photos. He can do the same thing for music with Google Play. Ultimately, Jim just needs a phone with a larger storage capacity.

Should I buy an LG 4K TV?

Episode 1329

Jeff from West Los Angeles, CA
LG 4K TV

Jeff is looking at an LG 43" 4K TV with WebOS. Leo says that LG makes excellent TVs. 43" is kind of small for watching, though, especially for sports. If he can afford to go larger, Leo says he should. It all comes down to the "spousal acceptance factor." Would it be better in a dark room or lighter room? Leo says that LCDs are better in rooms where he can't control the lighting.

Scott Wilkinson

Scott joins us to talk 4K TV. Leo's getting ready to buy a new OLED TV and Scott recommends going with LG. It has high dynamic range but also supports both standards Ultra HD Premium and HDR 10. Then you can stream no matter what standard services like Vudu support. The G6 is great, but the B6 is more affordable and if you don't need the included sound bar that the G6 has, the B6 is a better bargain.
