LG NANO81 TV NanoCell series (2020)- IPS, Real 4K, Quad Core Processor…

The LG NANO81 is a good TV for most uses. With its IPS panel, it’s a great choice to watch sports with a group of friends or use it as a PC monitor. It has a low contrast ratio, poor black uniformity, and its local attenuation function is poor, so watching movies in the dark is not a good choice. It has no VRR support and has an update frequency of 60 Hz, but casual players should appreciate the incredibly low entry delay and decent response time.LG NANO81 TV

The LG NANO81 is a decent general TV with an IPS panel. It is a very simple TV that is limited in additional functions, as it does not support any variable update frequency (VRR) or Dolby Vision technology. It has wide viewing angles, which makes it a good choice to watch the big match with many friends. Unfortunately, people who like to watch movies in the dark might be disappointed with their low contrast ratio, poor local attenuation function, and uniformity issues. It’s a good choice for console players because the response time is decent and the entry delay is incredibly low. Overall, it’s a pretty well-built TV with excellent design and a premium central-looking stand.
The LG NANO81 is mediocre for watching movies. It has an IPS panel that has a low contrast ratio, and its local attenuation function is bad. It also has a poor black uniformity, so the dark scenes don’t look good. Fortunately, it increases low-resolution content well and removes judder from 24p fonts as native apps.

Very good for TV shows. The LG NANO81 has excellent handling of reflection, but it doesn’t get very bright, so you should avoid placing it in really bright rooms. It has wide viewing angles and increases the content by 720p, as of cable boxes, without any problem. LG’s WebOS platform also has a wide selection of applications available for download.

The LG NANO81 TV is good for video games. It doesn’t have game features like VRR support and is limited to a 60 Hz refresh rate. Despite everything, it has a decent response time and an incredibly low input delay. It also increases 1080p content very well, making it a good TV for console games.LG NANO81 TV

Disappointing for HDR movies. The LG NANO81 does not support Dolby Vision, its color range is just decent and does not become bright enough to make the reflections appear in HDR, so it does not look different from the SDR content. It also has a low contrast ratio, a poor characteristic of local attenuation and poor black uniformity. On the plus side, remove the judder from 24p native fonts.

The LG NANO81 is good for HDR games, mainly because of its good gaming performance. It has an incredibly low input delay and a decent response time, but the HDR content doesn’t look good. Its color range is a bit limited and does not become bright enough to stand out. In addition, it is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and does not have VRR support.

LG NANO81 TV is a very good choice to use as a PC monitor. Displays the appropriate 4:4:4 chroma, which is important for reading text. It has wide viewing angles, which makes it a good choice to place in a meeting room. It is not the best TV to place in bright rooms, because although it has excellent handling of reflection, it does not become bright enough to combat glare.LG NANO81 TV

The LG 65NANO81 has good grey uniformity. The edges of the screen are slightly darker, closer to the corners. There is also a very minimal dirty screen effect in the center, which is ideal for sports fans. The uniformity is much better in the almost dark scenes, except that there is bleeding of the visible background light in the lower right corner.
The LG NANO81 TV has exceptional color accuracy after calibration. Any remaining inaccuracies are difficult to detect without the help of a colorimeter and the range follows the target almost perfectly. The color temperature is cool when an image with 5% and 10% stimulus levels is displayed, which affects the color temperature score.Photo:LG
