The LG G1 is a high-end OLED TV that excels in picture quality, especially for gaming and watching movies, with very good performance for sports content. OLED displays offer perfect black levels and impressive contrast, which make this TV ideal for dark room conditions. Its performance in bright rooms is good, though not as strong as its dark room capabilities. It has wide viewing angles and handles reflections well, which is great for rooms with multiple seating areas. The LG G1's sound quality is considered very good, and it includes a sleek flush wall mount instead of a regular stand. While offering a premium viewing experience, it commands a higher price point. If top-notch gaming performance and cinematic experiences are a priority and budget is not a concern, the LG G1 could be an excellent choice. If frequent viewing in very bright rooms is anticipated, you might want to consider other options with superior brightness capabilities. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.8
The LG G1 OLED TV is excellent for watching movies and cinematic TV thanks to its perfect contrast and superb black uniformity which provide deep blacks and a great dark room viewing experience. Additionally, its wide viewing angles and good color accuracy out of the box ensure a consistent and vibrant picture, regardless of where you're seated.
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.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.6
The LG G1 OLED's upscaling capability ensures that lower-resolution content is displayed clearly, beneficial for watching standard-definition news programs, and its excellent color accuracy 'out of the box' means that colors appear vibrant and true to life without the need for calibration.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
PerfectRec’s cartoons & animation score places great importance on several crucial aspects of TV picture quality, such as color gamut, color volume, brightness, and out-of-the-box color accuracy, in addition to good gray uniformity and contrast, to ensure that you can fully enjoy your favorite animated content. Cartoons and animation are characterized by vibrant and colorful imagery, however, accurately displaying this type of content can pose a challenge for TVs, particularly during scenes with complex lighting or subtle color variations.
Overall Picture:
4.6
The LG G1 OLED TV provides an exceptional picture quality because its perfect black levels and infinite contrast ratio result in outstanding black uniformity, enhancing the visual depth and detail in dark scenes. Additionally, the TV displays vibrant and accurate colors straight out of the box, across a wide color gamut and color volume, making images pop without the immediate need for calibration.
Sports:
4.5
The LG G1 OLED is excellent for watching sports due to its wide viewing angles and superb handling of reflections, ensuring a clear picture from different seating positions even in bright rooms. Its motion processing is highly capable, maintaining crisp images during fast action without distracting blurs, crucial for sports immersion.
Bright Room:
4.2
The LG G1 OLED TV delivers a good experience for watching TV in a bright room due to its effective management of reflections and strong performance in maintaining brightness in both standard and high dynamic range content. Alongside this, its perfect contrast and strong color performance contribute to a vivid and detailed picture even when ambient light is present.
