The LG C1 OLED offers overall superior picture quality, better performance in both dark and bright rooms, and significantly better gaming experience. It also has excellent viewing angles and reflections handling, which is good for rooms with multiple seating areas and some ambient light. The TCL S450G LCD, on the other hand, comes at a budget-friendly price. It's a decent all-rounder for general viewing like news, talk shows, and reality TV. Reflecting its price, the picture quality, especially in a dark room, won’t match the LG’s, and it's not as well-suited to bright rooms or gaming. If you prioritize top-notch picture quality, gaming, and can spend more, go with the LG C1. If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly option for casual watching, the TCL S450G could serve you well, but with compromises in display capabilities. Give Feedback

"TCL, though, has built much of its success on affordable sets, and the 2023 TCL S Class S4 with Google TV is a testament to just how good of a TV you can get for an affordable price tag"

About LG

LG, a prominent TV brand from Korea, has played a significant role in popularizing OLED TVs. OLED technology is hailed as the future of TV technology. Their TVs employ WebOS, a proprietary smart TV software that not only offers seamless functionality but also includes gaming-specific features, earning praise from players worldwide. Often regarded as the gateway to unparalleled viewing experiences, LG's mid-range OLEDs come highly recommended, making them a worthwhile investment for those willing to stretch their budget for superior quality.

About TCL

TCL, the highly recognizable TV brand from China, has firmly established itself as the second-largest manufacturer in terms of sales volume. Renowned for striking an impressive balance between affordability, picture quality, and design, TCL TVs deliver a compelling overall package. While they have traditionally excelled in the low-end and midrange TV segments, TCL has recently made remarkable strides in the realm of high-end televisions, introducing impressive models that rival top competitors. Most TCL TVs use Roku software which is very user friendly and easy to use, but they have a few other models that use Google TV which has the largest app selection, but is not as user friendly as Roku.
