LG C2 OLED TV Review

If you’re a fan of OLED TVs – with their deep, rich blacks perfect for watching movies at home – LG has always been the name to look for. LG’s C line is right in the middle of OLED offerings, and it’s usually the right mix of features and price for most people who want an OLED TV. Now Samsung, Vizio and Sony all offer TVs with display technology, and they all have some compelling reasons to choose them – but that doesn’t make the LG Evo C2 any less awesome.

C2 produces an amazing picture, has excellent software and comes with the latest technology to delight gamers. There is not much to hate about this TV and plenty of things that will bring a smile while watching your favorite movies, shows and playing games. While deciding which OLED to get is getting trickier, you can’t go wrong with the 2022 Evo C2.

OLED TV works fine

The LG Evo C2 is an excellent OLED TV for any type of content, with rich colors, deep blacks, and good contrast. Gamers will love the support of the latest technology on every HDMI port and the low latency. They are available in a wide range of sizes to fit your room.

From the moment I turned on C2, I knew I was there for fun watching. Vibrant red, yellow, blue and green scatter from the screen. While watching “Elvis,” the bright colors during The Return of the King looked really special. Its deep blacks and resulting contrast make it easy to spot detail in dark scenes — especially useful when watching episodes of “House of the Dragon” or “The Sandman,” both of which happen frequently in low-light rooms.

I made quite a few tweaks to get to an image setting that I liked best. The ‘AI’ settings, which adapt to room conditions, were more pleasing to the eye than those of Samsung’s QN90B, another new high-end TV.

One of the hits against OLEDs versus LEDs is the brightness that OLEDs are capable of, but the C2 is bright enough. Watching in a well-lit room during the day, I had no trouble with detail, and it was noticeably brighter than my LG C9. But the C2 isn’t as bright as some of the newer OLEDs from other companies – one of the few reasons to look at a different OLED TV.

The C2 offers all the technologies you would want if you were a gamer with one of the latest gaming consoles: 120Hz refresh rate, variable refresh rate, automatic low latency mode plus Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. All four HDMI inputs support version 2.1, which means they are able to provide the most fluid gaming experience possible for those with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S or high-end gaming PCs.

But does that really make a difference? Yes, C2 produced the smoothest and most colorful game I’ve seen on Xbox Series X. In Forza Horizon 5, the screen keeps pace with cars racing at top speeds. In Fortnite, the action was jitter-free and lively. it was almost very visually intense.

C2 runs on WebOS, which is one of the best operating systems for TVs out there. And it almost runs on C2: apps launch quickly and you can load content within seconds. Samsung’s Tizen OS on the QN90B seems slow in comparison.

WebOS is also powerful. It contains every application you searched for. It offers responsive voice control through Google Assistant or Alexa, both of which are built-in. It can also act as a smart home hub to control other connected devices in your home, truly making it the center of your home.

The C2 is getting smaller and bigger than most other OLED TV lines. LG has increased the size available for the C line every year, and the C2 offers the most options. You can choose from as small as 42″ ($1249.99) or as large as 83″ ($4999.99). We tested the 65-inch model ($1899.99). Samsung’s S95B, its OLED option, comes in just 55 inches ($1699.99) or 65 inches ($2099.99).

When you spend thousands of dollars on a TV, you expect a stand that will fit the screen. While the C2 mount looks sleek with its brushed metal finish, it’s not that well thought out. First, it was one of the most difficult mounts I’ve installed lately and lacks instructions on how to put it together. Worse, however, it protrudes in front of the TV, so if you’re using a speaker, you’ll need to place it a few inches from the screen. It also raises the TV just 2.25 inches above the surface, which means the speakers can block out the bottom portion of the picture. If you get a C2, do yourself a favor and get a different stand or plan to install it.

While WebOS itself is a powerful and fast operating system for TV, LG has obfuscated the homepage to make it less useful. It has two rows of content above installed apps, including ads. You can turn off ads if you look far enough in the system settings, but there’s not much you can do about the home screen layout. Overall, the home screen will benefit from fewer distractions and more focus on what you want to do. I found myself turning to voice control more than usual to get around the cluttered home screen.

While the sound from the TV is much better than the older models, it still doesn’t match the picture quality. The built-in 2.2 channel speakers make it possible to hear the dialogue without straining your ears, but the sound lacks a lot of bass. Given the impressive visuals that the screen produces, it would be a shame to miss the element of sound that creates an overall experience. Add a speaker or, even better, a complete home theater setup to complete your home entertainment system.

The competition among OLED TVs has improved, but the LG Evo C2 is still among the best TVs you can buy. It has a beautiful picture, the latest technology of game consoles and good software that powers it all. Plus, you can find them in a size that fits almost any room.

In a few cases, C2 may not be for you – especially if you have a very light room and want to watch it during the day. But for just about everyone, the C2 will be a treat for your eyes every time you sit down to watch.
