Thanks in advance.



Congratulations on buying The Frame LED. The beauty of this TV is to wall mount it rather than keep it on a stand.
Was this via Amazon during the sale or from the store.
The Amazon sale had fantastic pricing for this TV and made even more sweeter if an exchange was involved.
True, this tv must be wall mounted for its true beauty and party trick ( frame) to shine through. AFAIK, this model is not available offline. Bought it through Flipkart sale.

We brought a LG 75inch LED along with a LG SL8YG sound bar for 1.95 Lakhs from a LG Store. Had to bargain a lot.

I believe we have got the same model. I also sideloaded Prime Video.

Do you also face the problem of signing in every time when the app is opened? I am not able to find a solution to that. There is quite a lot of HDR content on Prime.

No, I don't sign in everytime. Haven't browsed prime enough to figure out HDR content yet. Which one are you referring to?

Can you please provide me the link for the APK/process of sideload? I have used Aptoid one.

Prime video has Prime Originals, several of which are in HDR. The video quality is good although the same can't be said about the content itself.

Sure, give me some time please. It is on my wife's laptop. I had used the process from this video, but the apk file from another website.

Congrats on this. Did you look at an LG OLED 55/65 inch TV. 65 inch should have been near this price. OLEDs are simply outstanding and I bought LG 55C8 in 2018 for 1.4 (it is 1.2 now). Seeing that, my brother in UK bought a LG 65C8 for 1800 pounds. Maybe you wanted an even bigger screen and that could be reason for not considering an OLED.???

Yes, plasma was good and based on reignofchaos advice, I bought a Pioneer 42 kuro in 2008. However, the tech died out, and I would say that OLEDs have carried on the torch except that instead of 720p, they now have 4K screens.

I did, played the same content on both and showed my brother [actual buyer] the difference in blacks. It was either 65 inch OLED or the 75 inch LED. The OLED was around 2.5+ lakhs with a free soundbar. Finally, though my brother agreed the blacks were better on the OLED, he felt the bigger size made a bigger difference to him than the blacks. I have a 64 inch Samsung Plasma and I swear by its picture quality and hence I was inclined towards the OLED.

FYI, the LG soundbar is superb, especially the vocals I loved.

Vu is OK at best but definitely there are better options at the price. If price is no consideration, go with OLED. For mediocre large screen TVs, I feel that the bad quality taunts from a larger screen. Bad picture on say a 5 inch screen is less noticeable than on a 60-100 inch screen.

How good is the Panasonic FX650/ FX730? Is there a marked step down in quality vis-a-vis similarly specced Sony LED’s, or is it comparable to Samsung/LG? How’s the general experience with Panasonic after sales? I like natural looking colors and hence inclined to Panasonic however
don’t have any previous experience with their products.

Usage pattern is streaming Netflix/Prime/Hotstar and PS4 gaming. Not looking at the GX series since there are better deals on last years FX models.

We have 3 Vu TVs & 2 Sony TVs.

For 90% of TV watching you really don't feel much of a difference, but the 10% is where the Sony seems to have an edge with better speakers and quality.

In terms of reliability, the Sony's are doing far better compared to the VUs which have been throwing small niggles:
1) New 50" 4K Smart VU would randomly switch on.
2) 2 year old 55" 4K Smart VU had a screen pixelation problem, and a remote that just died mysteriously - fixed under warranty : quick & efficient process.
The Sony's however work like a charm.

Overall: VU is nice if you aren't an avid / regular TV watcher due to it's pricing.

Picked up the Panasonic 55” GX750 for Rs.69,900/- (Cochin).

Did a demo test of various scenes from Mad Max Fury Road and opening scene of Avengers Infinity War (both on my HDD) on the following models:

1. 55” Sony Bravia X70G
2. 55” Panasonic GX750
3. 49” Samsung NU7100
4. 55” LG SM8100

The Bravia X70 is Sony’s entry level 4K TV this year, and it still tops in terms of picture quality among all four, if you are disposed towards natural looking colors and skin tones. The LG went out of consideration, since even after tweaking few settings, the soap opera effect was much more pronounced than in other brands. Samsung appeared too saturated for my taste.

The Panasonic had the closest comparable PQ to Sony, with blacks looking inkier on the Panasonic and hence my choice.
