The LG 49SM8500PLA appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
The design of the LG 49SM8500PLA is largely inspired by the other models in the SM850 series.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
The LG 49SM8500PLA is rather flat.
With a size of 49 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Equipped with a double base, LG has chosen security. The TV holds well, nothing moves thanks to this system. And whatever the price of the 49SM8500PLA, we prefer this kind of solution that guarantees that the television will not fall out of its place.
The interest of the 49SM8500PLA is undoubtedly its technology Slim design.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that LG has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.
