The LG B3 OLED TV is an upper midrange model with strong overall picture quality, excellent for movies and series, very good for gaming, and sports content. In a dark room, it performs excellently because of its perfect black levels. However, its performance in a bright room is merely good, so it may not be the best choice for very well-lit areas. It has a fantastic response time and low input lag, which is ideal for fast-paced content and gaming. This model has OLED technology, which means it offers wide viewing angles, making it great for larger groups. The sound quality is good, but if you are an audiophile or crave a more immersive audio experience, external speakers or a sound system may be necessary. It supports HDR formats including Dolby Vision and HLG, enhancing content with better contrast and color. Keep in mind that while the price point is upper midrange, you are paying for the cutting-edge OLED technology and impressive picture quality. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.8
PerfectRec’s movies & cinematic TV score takes into account the most important TV features for cinematic content. Our score considers the following factors:color gamut, color volume, out-of-the-box color accuracy, local dimming and black uniformity. We also factor in gray uniformity and viewing angles to a lesser degree.
Gaming:
4.7
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.
Overall Picture:
4.7
PerfectRec developed this proprietary score designed to provide an overall assessment of a display's visual performance. It is a comprehensive metric that takes into account many quantitative measures of picture quality, including: contrast ratio, color gamut, color volume, color accuracy, local dimming, gray uniformity, black uniformity, viewing angle, reflections (glare) and color calibration. By combining multiple factors, this score offers a more nuanced and comprehensive evaluation of a display's capabilities than a single factor.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The LG B3 OLED TV is notably good for watching cartoons and animation due to its very good colors straight out of the box, meaning that the colors appear accurate without the need for additional tweaking. Additionally, it offers a very good color gamut, ensuring a wide range of colors is depicted, which is essential for the vibrant and varied hues typically found in animated content.
Sports:
4.5
The LG B3 OLED's exceptional response time and motion processing ensure that fast-moving scenes, typical in sports content, are displayed with minimal blur, making every play appear smooth and clear. Additionally, its excellent handling of reflections and wide viewing angles allow for a consistent picture quality that is not compromised by light reflections or changes in viewing position, suited for group viewings in bright rooms.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.5
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.
Bright Room:
4.2
The LG B3 OLED TV is good for watching TV in a bright room because it has a good SDR brightness level and handles reflections excellently, minimizing distractions from ambient light in the room. While its contrast and color capabilities are important for picture quality, the brightness and reflection handling are more critical in bright environments.
