LG G6 4K OLED TV Review
The best LG OLED yet gives the fledgling tech a fighting chance in the age of HDR
The LG G6 (OLED65G6P) is $8,000 for a reason: it kicks butt. Outside of the posh design and new-fangled playback functions (read: HDR), you're paying for hands down one of the best TVs we've ever tested. Because it's quite a bit brighter than past OLED models, the G6 boasts awesome contrast and the same great black levels OLED is known for.
It's also apparently capable of a much wider color range, though we unfortunately didn't get to check if LG's claim of 99% DCI-P3 was completely accurate—but it is quite believable.
I also didn't have time for a full calibration, and instead opted to compare the TV's out-of-the-box ISF Expert Dark Room picture mode to the new HDR Effect mode, which lends an HDR appearance to non-HDR content. You can think of it like a 2D to 3D conversion, but for High Dynamic Range.
Below, you'll find side-by-side results with caption explanations for the G6's core performance in color accuracy, RGB/grayscale tracking, and gamma. If you have questions about any results, please ask in comments or e-mail me directly.
