 WOLED
Resolution 4k

The LG G2 OLED is a high-end TV, and it's the successor to the LG G1 OLED. OLED TVs like the G2 are self-emissive, meaning unlike LCD panels found on other TVs, there's no backlight, which allows them to display a nearly-perfect contrast ratio in dark rooms, with deep inky blacks and no distracting blooming or halo-effect around bright objects. This TV has a unique design, and unlike most TVs, it doesn't even come with a stand, as it's designed to be mounted flush to your wall with the included slim wall mount. Like other LG TVs, it uses the webOS smart interface, which has been slightly refreshed for 2022, adding user profiles among other minor changes. There's a huge focus on gaming features this year, including support for GeForce Now and Stadia game streaming. The 'G' lineup isn't as popular as the rest of LG's lineup, as the unique design isn't cheap, but it's LG's highest-end 4k model in 2022, sitting above the more popular LG C2 OLED and below the 8k LG Z2 OLED.


The LG G2 OLED is a superb TV for most uses. Thanks to its nearly infinite contrast ratio, it displays deep blacks with perfect uniformity in a dark room, making it an exceptional choice for watching movies in a dark room. It's also one of the brightest OLED panels ever, making it a great choice for watching TV shows in a bright room. It also has an incredibly wide viewing angle, so it's a good choice for a wide seating arrangement. It's also an excellent choice for use as a PC monitor. Finally, it has an impressive selection of gaming features, and it delivers a superb gaming experience overall.

PROS
  • Near-infinite contrast ratio for perfect blacks.
  • Fantastic reflection handling.
  • Image remains accurate at an angle.
  • Significantly brighter than previous OLED TVs.
CONS
