ABOUT THIS TV

LG 50NANO816QA 400x400 Image LG 50NANO816QA

The 50NANO816QA is a 50 inch 4K TV from LG, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel. It can achieve a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important feature of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.

LG did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess. Considering the TV features a big 50 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors by default.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that it can show.

A panel with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that look muddy as shown in the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you imagine, this will affect your experience considerably.

Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to produce deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

HDR10 Pro and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the LG 50NANO816QA can achieve is 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Edge LED (Local Dimming) technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are not interested in gaming, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But since this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which inputs changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

It is just 1.94 inches thick. It weighs approximately 14.0 kilograms and an additional 1.6 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.
