Norm has an LG OLED C6 TV. It's the curved one. He loves the HDR and Dolby Vision. He got the Comcast 4K X1 DVR as well, and he's been enjoying the replay of the Olympics in 4K HDR. But there is a drawback — he's seeing some ghosting. Leo says that he can reset that by turning it off for a few days. OLED doesn't have permanent burn-in, so letting it rest for awhile can solve the problem, in theory anyway.
Manny has an LG G5 smartphone and the timer pops up telling him how long he's been on a call. It annoys him. Leo says it has to be an LG feature because that's not a normal Android function. There has to be a setting in the menu settings to disable that, so he should check there.
Mike has an LG Aristo mobile phone and it crashes all the time. What can he do? Leo suspects that there's an app that has been corrupted or flawed that causes the phone to crash. Leo suggests backing up the data and then restore the phone to its factory condition. It'll be in Backup and Reset under settings. The phone will wipe the drive and then reinstall Android. Then he'll have to reinstall everything.
Glen is thinking about buying an OLED TV, and wants to know which one to get — Sony or LG? Which one is more powerful processor-wise? Leo says that Sony isn't doing very well in the TV business, while LG is holding Strong. From a technology viewpoint, it really is a matter of taste. Both make excellent TVs. The chatroom says that Sony has better support.
David is seeing "banding" when he's watching his HDTV. What is that? Leo says that banding usually indicates compression and comes from the source material. If he wants to test it, he should hook up his TV to a Blu-Ray player and play a Blu-ray DVD. He won't see any banding because there's no compression there. But when he watches on satellite or streaming Netflix, he'll see it because the signal is compressed.
Kevin wants to upgrade his TV and is wondering if HDR is important. Leo says it is. He won't see a lot of HDR content just now, but moving forward everything will come out mastered for HDR. So he'll be on the right side of that by getting an HDR compatible TV. He won't really see 4K broadcast for the next few years, though. He'll get it from streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon. He'll also want to get a UHD-HDR BluRay player. Leo likes the Xbox One S.
Richard has an old Alcatel phone that lets him post to Twitter, while his LG phone won't. Rich says to try uninstalling the app, then reinstalling it. He should also uninstall any apps he doesn't need. Lastly, he should try HTC Boost Plus. It's an app that scans the phone for junk files and deletes them.
Al has an LG V20 Android phone and wants to know if he should get another one for a secondary device. Leo says that LG is about to come out with the LG V30. Al wants one that has a removable battery. Leo says that there isn't a popular phone that does removable batteries anymore. The drive for thinner mobile devices has pushed to get rid that feature.
Jason wants to know if there's a projector that's Bluetooth compatible with his smartphone and if they're good quality. Leo says that they've gotten pretty good. The real issue is going to be the brightness. He'll also want a flat screen or a good white wall. There's even paint he can get to paint his wall with that is reflective for a brighter image.
