Mine is just off not dumb
I can view pictures, but mine is not on the network, saw no reason why, updates come over the air.
As I have said before I want a good tuner, a good panel, good processing, plenty of HDMI.
As to smart I have a pair of consoles better for smart than any TV, IPlayer is fine, web surfing is fine, and they are the same brand as my TV!
And they are regularly updated!
