Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.9
The LG G3 OLED TV excels in contrast and black uniformity, which are critical for deep blacks and high detail in dark scenes, making it exceptional for movies and cinematic content. Additionally, its accurate colors out of the box and wide viewing angles ensure a consistent and vibrant picture regardless of seating position.
Bright Room:
4.9
The LG G3 OLED is excellent for watching TV in a bright room because it has a very good SDR and HDR brightness, ensuring the picture remains visible even in well-lit conditions, and it also has the best reflections handling, significantly reducing the glare from lights and windows.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
4.8
The LG G3 OLED TV excels in upscaling lower resolution content to its native resolution, ensuring that regular TV programs look sharp and clear. Additionally, its excellent color reproduction right out of the box and broad color gamut contribute to vibrant and true-to-life pictures, ideal for watching news and talk shows.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.8
The LG G3 OLED provides excellent colors out of the box, which means cartoons and animations will look vibrant and true to the intended colors without the need for adjustments. Furthermore, with a very good color gamut, it can display a wide range of colors, making animated content pop with rich, diverse tones.
Overall Picture:
4.8
The LG G3 OLED's excellent picture quality can be attributed to its perfect contrast and effective local dimming, which ensure deep blacks and high peak brightness, particularly important for HDR content. With vibrant colors out of the box, expansive color gamut, and strong color volume, the display delivers rich and accurate images across various content.
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.
Sports:
4.6
The LG G3 OLED's excellent response time makes fast-moving sports look smooth without motion blur, and its superior handling of reflections ensures the picture remains clear even in rooms with many light sources. Wide viewing angles guarantee that the clarity and color accuracy remain consistent across different seating positions, enhancing the group watching experience.
