LG G1 OLED TV Review


High-end TV with the best image quality

For years OLED TVs  image quality with display technology remained largely unchanged, however LG promised something even better for 2021. The G1 has an all-new panel comparatively other LG Televisions. It is called Evo by LG and says it achieves higher brightness and improved color.

The main advantage the G1 has its unique design than any other OLED TV. This TV is made to be wall-mounted doesn't come with a stand.

LG has improved its gaming features by adding picture modes especially for games, as well as a convenient menu that shows all gaming info and adjustments in one place. There's a new remote and a new smart TV homepage, too.





LG G1 series

1.It comes in three sizes 55-inch, 65-inch and 77-inch. 

2.Evo panel and the slimmer, wall-mount-centric Gallery design.

3.OLED display technology is fundamentally different from the LED and LCD technology used in the vast majority of today's TVs

4.High-end LCDs (especially with HDR) are brighter than OLEDs, but the picture quality on OLED TVs, including that of this G1, is superior overall.

5.G1 is pretty much all picture when seen from the front, but it's the side view that sets it apart. It measures just 0.8 inches deep and is designed for nearly flush wall-mounting.

6.Channels are built into the TV's back to run cables through, for a cleaner installation behind the TV. LG recommends using molding to hide cables on the wall itself.




Remote

To make it more Attractive its remote LG has put some nice features like the scroll wheel and motion-tracking, while slimming it down slightly. The biggest difference is the shortcut keys at the bottom, four for streaming services and two more for the built-in voice assistants, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. LG G1 is also equipped with a far-field mic, by saying the wake word to get the TV to respond, no remote required.


LG's webOS menu system

Attractive overlay at the bottom of the screen that lets you keep tabs on what you're watching. Instead there's a full-screen homepage, similar to Fire TV and Android TV. But it has fewer apps and more, well, junk. The top two-thirds of the screen are devoted to the weather, setup tips, a search window and a Trending Now section with a random collection of TV shows and movies. Further down sections devoted to inputs and particular streaming apps.



Ports

LG's recent OLED models include the latest version of the HDMI standard: 2.1. That means their HDMI ports can handle 4K at 120 frames per second and variable refresh rate (VRR, including NVIDIA G-sync and AMD FreeSync), as well as enhanced audio return channel (eARC) and automatic low latency mode (ALLM, or auto game mode). That means they can take advantage of the latest graphics features available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. New for 2021 is a Game Optimizer mode that puts all of the TVs' gaming-related settings in one place; see below for details.

The selection of connections is otherwise top-notch, though it no longer supports analog component video. There's also a dedicated headphone or analog audio output and another for IR blasters, which could ease some installations.

1.Four HDMI inputs with HDMI 2.1, HDCP 2.2
2.Three USB 2.0 ports
3.Optical digital audio output
4.Analog audio 3.5mm headphone output
5.RF (antenna) input
6.RS-232 port (minijack, for service only)
7.IR blaster port (minijack)
8.Ethernet (LAN) port


Image Quality

Starting with the new Gen 4 a9 processing chip that adds scene detection and upgraded object enhancement over last year's version. Both the G1 and C1 also have a 120Hz refresh rate. LG's entry-level A1 OLEDs, meanwhile, have a more basic a7 processor and 60Hz refresh rate. LG's OLED TVs' picture settings include a Filmmaker Mode. As promised, it turns off the soap opera effect for film-based content (yay) but so do many other modes in the G1. While plenty accurate, Filmmaker Mode is also relatively dim so I ended up using Cinema and ISF Bright for most critical viewing.


Color accuracy

With Evo panel LG claims better color quality. Color is excellent. G1's white color could look more pure. Color on the G1 was nonetheless extremely accurate both before and after calibration.


Video processing

Better touch, Motion handling on the G1 is excellent. Under TruMotion, the new Cinematic Movement setting (the default for Cinema mode) served up 24-frame cadence with a very slight hint of smoothing, improving on last year's too-smooth Cinema Clear setting while preserving 600 lines of motion resolution. 24p purists who want no smoothing at all will opt for the Off position (the default for Filmmaker mode) and suffer the low motion resolution, while tweakers will appreciate the fine granularity of the User De-Judder mode to dial in the right amount of smoothness.

User also opens up the OLED Motion Pro menu with three levels of black frame insertion that further improve motion resolution, with 800 lines in Low and a full 1200 in Med and High. The latter introduces flicker, unfortunately, and all three are a bit dimmer than Off. One improvement over last year is that engaging OLED Motion Pro no longer totally crushes shadow detail -- it's a bit worse but still very good.


Uniformity

G1 is exemplary, with no significant brightness or color variations across the screen and nearly perfect image quality from off-angle. A bit more color shift toward magenta in extreme angles with full-field mid-bright and brighter test patterns, but it disappears when you move closer to on-axis and never affected the image from a normal viewing angle.


Gaming

The G1's superb image quality carries over to games, and some of its biggest 2021 features upgrades are gaming-related. The new Game Optimizer is the name of both a picture mode and a full menu system. The latter offers all-new tweaks including four game genre modes: Standard, FPS mode (said to boost shadow detail), RPG mode (to boost contrast) and RTS mode (said to enhance mid-gray scale areas). There are also sliders labeled Black Stabilizer (for adjusting dark areas) and White Stabilizer (for bright areas), as well as the OLED Motion Pro setting described above (LG says it's particularly useful for games) and the Reduce Blue light setting (said to be easier on the eyes).

Repressed within Game Optimizer is another setting labeled "Reduce input delay (input lag)" with two options, Standard and Boost. The former, which is the default for any game, serves up an excellent lag number similar to past LG OLED models: just 13.1ms for both 1080p and 4K HDR sources. Engaging Boost cuts lag even further, to just under 10ms for both. The catch is that Boost is only available for 60Hz sources, so you can't use it with 120Hz games or VRR. And no, I don't think many humans would notice the extra 3ms of lag.


Features

LG says its Evo panel, available only on the G1 this year, uses a "new luminous element" for more precise lighting. The construction of the OLED pixel itself is different, with new materials for red and blue and a new green layer, all of which have narrower wavelengths compared to the pixels used on other OLED TVs.
