The LG G2 OLED TV offers excellent overall picture quality and is particularly suited for watching movies and series with its vibrant colors and deep blacks. If you're a gamer, you'll be pleased with its performance, though for competitive gaming, you should consider models with quicker response times. Sports fans will also enjoy the clear and smooth motion processing. The TV excels in dark rooms due to its perfect black levels, and while it's very good in bright rooms, if you have a particularly sunny room, there are other options that handle reflections better. The sound quality is commendable, but for a more immersive experience, external speakers might be preferable. It doesn't come with a traditional stand, but includes a sleek flush wall mount, making it more ideal for wall mounting than placement on a stand. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Movies & TV shows:
4.8
The LG G2 OLED excels in movie and cinematic TV watching due to its perfect contrast and black uniformity, which ensure deep blacks and a vivid picture. Additionally, with its good out-of-the-box colors and wide viewing angles, the TV offers a vibrant, consistent picture quality from different seating positions.
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.
Overall Picture:
4.7
The LG G2 OLED TV delivers exceptional picture quality due to its perfect contrast and black uniformity, which are essential for deep blacks and high-quality HDR performance. Additionally, it offers strong color performance right out of the box, a wide color gamut, and good color volume, enabling vibrant and accurate image reproduction across varied content.
Cartoons & Animaton:
4.6
The LG G2 OLED TV is excellent for cartoons and animation due to its very good performance in displaying colors out of the box, which ensures vibrant and accurate colors without the need for additional calibration. Additionally, its very good color gamut supports a wide range of hues, bringing animated content to life with rich and vivid colors.
Sports:
4.5
The LG G2 OLED TV is exceptional for watching sports due to its excellent handling of reflections, which ensures that the picture remains clear even in well-lit environments, and its ability to process fast-moving images, resulting in smooth motion that keeps up with the action on the screen.
Bright Room:
4.5
The LG G2 OLED TV is well-suited for bright rooms due to its very good SDR and HDR brightness capabilities, ensuring clear picture even when there's a lot of ambient light. Additionally, the TV has excellent reflections handling, which minimizes the impact of light sources and sunlight on the screen.
