I've got the 60 inch version and it's not a bad unit.
My major gripe is the 3d function is quite poor, and requires "fiddling" each time I use it, ie setting 1,2,3,0,-1,-2,-3. Having to set this each time I watch something 3d is a pain in the butt.
I never use the smart apps so can't comment on those.
Picture wise it's ok, but I compare it to my 2011 plasma which is like apples and oranges. In saying that there has been a number of firmware updates since I've had it which has improved the picture (at least I think so).

The recommended viewing distance for a 70" TV is 3m so 4m is fine, if possible maybe move a little closer. That is a lot of screen for the price.
