The LG A2 OLED TV is characterized by its excellent dark room performance, ideal for watching movies, due to its perfect black levels and contrast. It also performs very well for watching sports and animated content. However, its bright room performance is just good, so if your viewing space is very well-lit, the screen might not be as vivid as in darker rooms. For gamers, the response is very good with low input lag, though there are TVs with more tailored gaming features. Keep in mind, this TV is at a high-end price point, so it might be more expensive compared to other options. Sound quality is good, and with OLED technology, you get wide viewing angles and vibrant colors. It comes with three HDMI ports, which is standard, but if you have numerous devices, you might need more. The TV doesn't support certain advanced gaming features such as high refresh rate making it less suited for cutting-edge gaming. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.8
The LG A2 OLED TV is excellent for watching movies and cinematic TV due to its perfect contrast and black uniformity, providing deep blacks and high picture quality, especially in dark scenes. The TV also has a wide viewing angle, ensuring colors remain accurate when viewed from different positions, making it ideal for group viewings.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.6
PerfectRec’s news, talk, & other TV score prioritizes upscaling, brightness, contrast, out of the box color accuracy, and screen uniformity. This is because almost all news and talk shows are created in Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) with lower resolutions, such as 720P and 1080P. The purpose of this prioritization is to ensure that lower resolution content looks good on a 4K display and to help you identify which TV will perform best when watching live TV via Cable, Satellite, or Antenna.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The LG A2 OLED displays vibrant and true-to-life colors straight out of the box, which is ideal for the vivid and varied hues often found in cartoons and animation. Additionally, its broad color gamut ensures a wide range of colors can be represented accurately, contributing to an immersive viewing experience for animated content.
Overall Picture:
4.6
The LG A2 OLED TV delivers very good picture quality because it achieves perfect blacks due to its OLED technology, enhancing contrast and black uniformity for a more immersive viewing experience. It also excels with vibrant and accurate colors straight out of the box as well as a wide color gamut, ensuring that movies and other content look rich and lifelike.
Sports:
4.5
PerfectRec’s sports score prioritizes response time and refresh rate as the most important factors to ensure clear images of fast-moving scenes. In addition, we consider gray uniformity, which ensures that the turf looks the same across the whole screen, reflections, to avoid distracting ambient light from the action, and viewing angles and brightness, to avoid color distortion and washed-out images, especially when not seated directly in front of the TV.
Gaming:
4.1
PerfectRec’s gaming score measures a TV's performance when it comes to playing video games. It is based on several factors that can significantly impact the quality of the gaming experience, including screen response time, input lag, and refresh rate. Screen response time is a critical factor that determines how quickly the TV can transition from one color to the next, while input lag measures the delay between the gaming console output and the TV display. Refresh rate refers to the number of times per second that the TV displays a new frame, which can impact the smoothness of the gaming experience. The gaming score also takes into account two other features: local dimming in gaming mode, which can enhance contrast and picture quality, and black frame insertion, which can reduce screen brightness and create a smoother gaming experience.
Bright Room:
4.0
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.

Techradar

Al Griffin | August 2022
"Movie fans will find a lot here to love, and the A2 series’ low prices compared with other OLED TVs will keep their wallets happy. Images had the deep blacks and detailed shadows typical of the best 4K TVs, while colors looked both fully saturated and clean. Also, the A2’s out-of-box picture performance in Filmmaker mode was mostly accurate, requiring only slight adjustments to optimize brightness, color, and contrast."
