When choosing between the LG A1 and LG B3, consider the following aspects: The LG B3 offers a higher refresh rate, which is excellent for sports and gaming, providing a smoother picture. It also has slightly better performance in brighter rooms and supports a more responsive gaming experience with higher frame rates. On the other hand, the LG A1 is more budget-friendly. However, it won't be as suitable for fast-paced content and might not handle reflections in sunny rooms as effectively as the B3. If those features outweigh the price difference, the LG B3 would be a better choice. Give Feedback
