LG OLED55C8 - Pros & Cons

LG OLED55C8

Pros

  • a supremely capable; consistent and natural performer
  • magnificent; crisp; with deep rich colours
  • affordable OLED TV has gorgeous picture quality and
  • C8 is definitely brighter; more detailed and more impactful
  • higher dynamic range and is more suited for bright-room viewing
  • similarly priced and excels in its own ways
  • contrast enhancement and adaptive colour features
  • HDR still looks extremely impressive
  • the speaker system has been improved
  • silky-smooth and ultra-sharp video motion
  • built-in speakers in action

Cons

  • HOME
  • reviews; tech news; videos; tech specs and gadgets
  • currently no popular categories for this week
  • no perfect TruMotion setting either
  • many buyers making more than very occasional use of Gallery
  • TV it replaces was already a doozy
  • LG sounds a little weedy next to its main rivals
  • the picture looks a little flat and muted
  • Nor can it offer the same lush levels of vividness in bright scenes
  • losing out on brightness and contrast
  • OLED continues to fly the flag for viewing angles
