LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV Review

LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV: On the minus side

There are some aspects of the LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV that could be better. The inbuilt speakers look cool, but their audio output is only really ordinary. Something tells me that if you can match the asking price for the TV, home theatre sound is within your budget too, but it’s an area that could be improved.
The gentle curve of the TV makes for a nice talking point and a visually superb design, but at the same time it does mean that you can’t wall mount the LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV. At best, you could perhaps mantlepiece-mount it, but you’d have to be a bit brave to do so.
LG supplies its “Magic” remote with the LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV, and that works well enough, but if you don’t like motion controls — and they can be fiddly — a secondary remote is also supplied. The only thing here is that it’s the regular remote you’d get with any LG telly, and the style doesn’t match at all well with the LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV’s own design ethic.
Those, ultimately are small potatoes compared to the biggest problem with the LG 55EA9800 Curved OLED TV.
