Default 720p TV with HDR... How does it look/work?

I was looking for a TV for my garage when I found this one. 720p doesn't bother me on a little TV, but I'm curious about the HDR. Is it a gimmick or will it be noticeable? Is HDR only available with 4K content?

Netflix has HDR content on some non 4K shows. I think Microsoft Video and Apple also have HDR on some non 4K content as well.

Typically HDR is featured and utilize on 4K TVs, 4K UHD blu-rays and 4K network programming. HDR is very noticeable. It makes the whites brighter, the colors and blacks darker and more detailed.

Consumer Reports recommends the TV, but the HDR is disappointing due to a lack of adequate brightness.
CR's Take
This 32-inch entry-level 720p smart TV from LG, a non-4K set that nonetheless supports HDR technology, offers satisfying high-def picture quality. While it's only one of a handful of 720p sets we've tested that support HDR content (both HDR10 and HLG formats), it lacks sufficient brightness to do it any justice. The TV has a wider-than-average viewing angle for an LCD TV, but like many sets this size it has below-average sound. This model has LG's webOS smart TV platform, and supports both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa voice-powered digital assistants.
