The LG G3 is the newer model with generally superior qualities like better brightness, improved viewing angles, and higher performance for movies and series. This makes it suitable if you're after the latest tech with a slight edge in performance. However, as the G3 and G1 are similarly priced, if these enhancements don't seem essential and you're satisfied with a TV that still performs exceptionally well, especially with gaming and in dark rooms, the LG G1 could be a sound choice. Choose the G3 for the best features in the same price range, and the G1 if those incremental improvements aren't crucial for you. Give Feedback
