The LG NANO75 2022, also known as the LG NanoCell 75 Series, is an entry-level 4k TV in LG's NanoCell Series, and it's the replacement for the LG NANO75 2021. It's a pretty basic TV available in a wide range of sizes, but most have very few additional features. It runs the same webOS smart interface as LG's higher-end models, which is fast and easy to use and has a great selection of streaming apps. It also comes with LG's popular Magic Remote, which makes it very easy to navigate the user interface, as you can just point the remote where you want it to click, similar to a Wii remote.

Our Verdict

6.5 Mixed Usage

The LG NANO75 is an alright TV. It's best-suited for watching sports or shows in a moderately lit room, as it can't overcome a lot of glare. It looks bad in a dark room, so it's not a good choice for watching movies in the dark, as it has low contrast, poor black uniformity, and no local dimming feature. It's okay for casual gaming, thanks to its exceptionally low input lag and a decent response time, but it lacks any advanced gaming features. Sadly, HDR adds nothing since it can't display a wide color gamut, and it's not bright enough for HDR highlights to stand out in any way.

Pros
  • Image remains consistent at a moderate viewing angle.
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Lower resolution content like DVDs or cable TV is upscaled well.
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • Sub-par peak brightness.
5.7 Movies

The LG NANO75 delivers a sub-par movie-watching experience in a dark room. It has disappointing contrast and poor black uniformity, and there's no local dimming feature to improve either of them, so blacks look gray and patchy in the dark. On the other hand, it can remove judder from 24p sources like a Blu-ray player, and due to its relatively slow response time, there's just a bit of stutter. It also upscales low-resolution content well, which is great if you have a lot of DVDs.

Pros
  • Lower resolution content like DVDs or cable TV is upscaled well.
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • No local dimming.
  • Poor black uniformity.
7.5 TV Shows

The LG NANO75 is a good TV for watching shows in a moderately lit room. It has a decent viewing angle, which is good if you have a wide seating arrangement or like to move around with the TV on. The built-in webOS smart platform has a great selection of streaming apps, so you're sure to find your favorite shows. Unfortunately, it has low peak brightness, so despite its great reflection handling, it's not bright enough to overcome glare in a bright room.

Pros
  • Image remains consistent at a moderate viewing angle.
  • Great selection of streaming apps.
  • Lower resolution content like DVDs or cable TV is upscaled well.
Cons
  • Sub-par peak brightness.
7.2 Sports

The LG NANO75 is a decent TV for watching sports in a bright room. It has a wide viewing angle, which is great for a wide seating arrangement, as everyone sees the same thing. It has a decent response time, so fast motion is fairly clear, and there's just a bit of distracting dirty screen effect. Unfortunately, although it has great reflection handling, it can't get very bright, so glare is an issue in a bright room.

Pros
  • Image remains consistent at a moderate viewing angle.
  • Lower resolution content like DVDs or cable TV is upscaled well.
Cons
  • Sub-par peak brightness.
6.5 Video Games

The LG NANO75 is an okay TV for casual gaming. It has exceptionally low input lag, ensuring a responsive gaming experience, and it has a decent response time, so there's just a bit of blur behind fast-moving objects. Unfortunately, only the 86" version supports FreeSync variable refresh rate technology, whereas the other sizes are limited to a fixed 60Hz refresh rate. It looks best in moderately lit rooms, as it can't get bright enough to overcome glare, and it looks bad in a dark room due to its low contrast ratio.

Pros
  • Exceptionally low input lag.
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • Limited gaming features, no variable refresh rate support.
5.4 HDR Movies

The LG NANO75 delivers a poor HDR movie-watching experience. It doesn't look good in a dark room due to its low contrast ratio, poor black uniformity, and lack of a local dimming feature. It can't display a wide color gamut, and HDR adds very little overall as it can't get bright enough to bring out bright highlights.

Pros
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • No local dimming.
  • Poor peak brightness in HDR.
  • Can't display a wide color gamut.
  • Poor black uniformity.
6.6 HDR Gaming

The LG NANO75 is an alright TV for gaming in HDR, but mainly due to its gaming performance. It has low input lag for a responsive gaming experience, as well as a decent response time with just a bit of motion blur. HDR adds nothing, though, as it can't display a wide color gamut and can't get very bright in HDR. It also has low contrast, so bright highlights don't stand out.

Pros
  • Exceptionally low input lag.
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • No local dimming.
  • Poor peak brightness in HDR.
  • Limited gaming features, no variable refresh rate support.
  • Can't display a wide color gamut.
7.6 PC Monitor

The LG NANO75 is a good TV for use as a PC monitor. It has a decent viewing angle, so the sides of the screen don't fade if you're sitting close to it. It displays chroma 4:4:4 properly from a PC with a 4k signal, so text is crisp and easy to read. It also has exceptionally low input lag, ensuring a smooth desktop experience. Unfortunately, it can't get very bright, so even though it has great reflection handling, it can't overcome glare in a bright room.

Pros
  • Exceptionally low input lag.
  • Image remains consistent at a moderate viewing angle.
  • Chroma 4:4:4 is displayed properly for clear text.
Cons
  • Low contrast results in grayish blacks in a dark room.
  • Sub-par peak brightness.

Curved No

The LG NANO75 has a simple, understated design that doesn't look very premium, but doesn't look cheap, either. The bezels are thin, but there's a bit of distracting dead space between the first pixels and the side bezels.

Design
Stand

The stand is simple, but it supports the TV well and allows for just a bit of wobble. The feet are close to the sides of the TV for better stability, but this also means you'll need a larger table if you're planning on getting one of the larger sizes and don't plan on wall mounting it.

Footprint of the 55" stand: 37.4" x 9.2". The feet lift the TV about 2.5" off the table, so most soundbars fit under it without blocking the screen.

Design
Back
Wall Mount VESA 300x300

The back is made of a large thin metal panel. Most of the inputs face to the side, but they're set into the back of the TV and hard to access if you wall mount the TV. There are also a few inputs that face out the back. There are hooks on the back of TV for cable management. There are two hooks but three attachment points, with one above each foot and one in the center of the TV.

Build Quality

The LG NANO75 has decent overall build quality. The stand supports the TV well, and there's just a bit of wobble. The back panel flexes a bit, especially around the VESA mounting points. There are no serious flaws or issues, but the materials used are pretty basic overall.

Unfortunately, the LG NANO75 has disappointing contrast, so blacks look gray and patchy if you're in a dark room, and dark scenes lack shadow detail. There's also no local dimming feature to improve the appearance of dark scenes. The 50-inch model has much higher contrast and looks better in dark scenes.

The LG NANO75 has sub-par peak brightness in SDR. It's bright enough for a moderately-lit room, but it can't overcome glare in a bright room.

These measurements are in the 'Expert (Dark Space, Night)' Picture Mode, with Panel Brightness at 'Max' and the Color Temperature set to 'Warm 50'.

If you want the brightest image possible, switching to the 'Vivid' Picture Mode, with Adjust Contrast at 'Max', Auto Dynamic Contrast on 'High' and the Color Temperature set to 'Cold 50' results in a slightly brighter image, reaching a peak of 286 cd/m² with a 10% window, but these settings are less accurate overall.

Unfortunately, the LG NANO75 has poor peak brightness in HDR. Most dim scenes are displayed close to the intended brightness level, but since it can't get very bright, it starts tone mapping very early, so even moderately bright scenes are dimmer than they should be. There's no white crush, as fine details in bright scenes are preserved. Although there's no local dimming feature on this TV, there's some form of global dimming, as very small highlights are dimmer than larger ones.

These measurements are in the 'Cinema' HDR Picture Mode with Panel Brightness and Contrast at their max settings, with Color Temperature at 'Warm 50' and all other image processing disabled. If you find HDR too dark, setting Auto Dynamic Contrast to 'High' with the HDR Tone Mapping enabled increases the brightness of most scenes, as shown in this EOTF, but the overall peak brightness of the display is the same.

The LG NANO75 has okay gray uniformity. There are a few bright vertical bands across the screen, but they're not really noticeable with real content. The corners of the screen are darker, and there's a bit of dirty screen effect in the center, which is noticeable when watching sports or anything with a uniform color near the center. Near-black scenes look much better.

The LG NanoCell 75 Series has a decent viewing angle, which is important if you have a wide seating arrangement or like to move around with the TV on. Colors barely shift even at a wide angle, but there's a drop in brightness at a moderate angle that causes the image to fade and appear washed out. The 50" model has a worse viewing angle, so it's not as good for a wide seating arrangement.

The LG NanoCell 75 Series has great SDR accuracy out of the box. There are very few noticeable issues with the white balance and color accuracy. The color temperature is a bit warmer than the 6500K target, giving everything a slight red tint. Gamma is very close to the 2.2 target we use for a moderately-lit room.

The LG NanoCell 75 Series has a decent color gamut, but it can't display a wide color gamut, so HDR content looks muted. With extremely bright content the TV tone maps aggressively, as the TV sacrifices accuracy to push brighter highlights in HDR. This type of content is rare, so it's not noticeable with most regular content. In most regular scenes, the tone mapping is much better:

The LG NanoCell 75 Series has a decent response time. There's very little overshoot or undershoot, so the total response time is good, but there's quite a bit of motion blur behind fast-moving objects.

The LG NanoCell 75 Series has an okay frequency response. It's well-balanced in the mids and low treble range, so dialogue is clear and easy to understand. Like most TVs, though, it has very little bass response with no thump or rumble. It gets decently loud, but if you're in a noisy environment and need to increase the volume, there's a bit of compression.

The LG NanoCell 75 Series runs the 2022 version of LG's webOS proprietary smart interface. The interface is fast and easy to use, and the updated version now supports user profiles, meaning you can customize the home page for different users. LG advertises this as version 22, which is a shift from the previous versioning system. Internally, it appears that LG still uses the old versioning system, as the "TV Information" page reports the webOS TV version as version 7.1.0.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the 55" LG NANO75, but it's also available in 43-inch, 50-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch, and 86-inch sizes. There are some differences in performance between sizes; the 50-inch model uses a different panel type, and the 86-inch model supports a more advanced image processor and has a few extra features, including FreeSync variable refresh rate support and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on two ports.

Our unit was manufactured in April 2022, and you can see the label here.

Compared To Other TVs

The LG NANO75 is an entry-level TV with poor image quality overall. It's an alright choice for watching TV shows or sports in a moderately lit room, but it looks bad in a dark room, and it's not bright enough to overcome glare in a brighter room. Most competing models with VA panels are far better choices.

Samsung AU8000
43" 50" 55" 60" 65" 70" 75" 85"

The Samsung AU8000 is significantly better than the LG NANO75 2022. The Samsung has much higher contrast and better black uniformity, so it looks better in a dark room. The Samsung is also a bit brighter, so it can overcome more glare in a bright room.

Samsung Q60/Q60B QLED
43" 50" 55" 60" 65" 70" 75" 85"

The Samsung Q60/Q60B QLED is much better than the LG NANO75 2022. The Samsung has significantly better contrast and black uniformity, so it looks way better in a dark room. The Samsung also gets significantly brighter, so it can better overcome glare in a bright room, and HDR content looks more impactful as highlights stand out better.

LG NANO75 2021
43" 50" 55" 65" 70" 75" 86"

There's very little difference between the LG NANO75 2022 and its predecessor, the LG NANO75 2021. The newer model has better reflection handling and a slightly updated user interface, but other than that, it performs largely the same.

Hisense A6H
43" 50" 55" 65" 75"

The Hisense A6H is slightly better than the LG NANO75 2022. The Hisense has a wider viewing angle and slightly better contrast. The Hisense is also a bit better for gaming, as it supports a variable refresh rate, which only the 86" LG supports.
