The LG B2 OLED TV comes with excellent overall picture quality, making it well-suited for watching movies and series, particularly in dark rooms where it excels. Its performance in gaming is also very good, featuring a fast response time and low input lag, ideal for fast-paced games. Sports content looks very good as well due to its motion processing abilities. However, while this OLED has good performance in bright rooms, it may not be as bright as some LED TVs, so it might be less ideal if your room is very sunny. The B2 has good color accuracy and wide viewing angles, which is great for group watching. It supports features like Dolby Vision and HLG but does not support HDR10+. Sound quality is good, and it has four HDMI ports, but this model doesn't have particularly notable speakers, so you might consider a separate sound system for a more immersive audio experience.

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.8
The LG B2 OLED is highly praised for movie and cinematic TV viewing due to its perfect contrast and uniform black levels, which are crucial for deep dark scenes. Additionally, its wide viewing angles ensure that the picture quality is maintained from different seating positions, enhancing the viewing experience for multiple viewers.
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:
4.7
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.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The LG B2 OLED TV is exceptional for watching cartoons and animation because it displays colors vibrantly and accurately straight out of the box, which means animated content looks lively and true to the creators' intentions. Additionally, it has a wide color gamut and satisfactory color volume, ensuring a wide range of hues are represented with depth, enhancing the overall viewing experience for colorful content.
Overall Picture:
4.6
The LG B2 OLED TV delivers exceptional picture quality due to its perfect contrast ratio and flawless black uniformity, ensuring deep blacks and a striking range of darkness to light in images. It also boasts a wide color gamut and high color accuracy out of the box, providing vibrant and true-to-life colors across a broad spectrum.
Sports:
4.5
The LG B2 OLED is excellent for watching sports due to its exceptional handling of reflections and wide viewing angles, ensuring a clear picture regardless of seating position or room brightness. With scores indicating best-in-class response time and proficient motion processing, this TV provides smooth playback that keeps up with fast action without distracting blurs or delays.
Bright Room:
4.2
PerfectRec’s bright room score is a proprietary score of a television's performance in a bright environment, taking into account the following factors: screen brightness, reflections, and color volume. A higher score indicates better TV performance in bright conditions, minimizing glare and producing a more pleasant viewing experience. Brightness is crucial in how well the image displays in direct sunlight, and low reflections reduce glare. Color volume contributes to color vibrancy and depth, which are vital in a bright environment.

Tom's guide

Nick Pino | March 2023
"The LG B2 OLED pairs lush, saturated colors and perfect contrast with a 120Hz screen, HDMI 2.1 ports and a great smart TV platform. The LG B2 OLED is an ideal alternative to the LG C2 OLED for folks who want a taste of OLED life without the sticker price that usually comes with it. The LG B2 OLED does a lot right in terms of performance, color saturation is wonderful and contrast is second-to-none. Not only did color saturation and off-axis viewing impress me, harder to quantify specs like motion processing and upscaling really blew me away as well."
