Picture Quality

 LG 55 inch tv 4k

The Lg is probably one of the most stunning and top notch TV for the year 2023. OLED display panel gives the best black depth and level to any television. Black is pitch black for this TV.

Colour reproduction is stunningly amazing too. As long as you configure the TV’s settings right, it’ll deliver stunningly deep, rich, natural colours that surpasses the previous LG 55 inch tv 4k QLED generation.

The QLED panel used for the Lg has a brightness that can pick a little over 700 nits for HDR (about 800 nits), which might be a minor improvement but is still an improvement compared to last year QLED models.

In terms of motion handling, the performance of the Lg is quite similar to the last year’s E6 with LG 55 inch tv 4k QLED models.

Another worth noting is that the response time of this TV is so fast that the known issue of inherent motion blur of LCD panels is gone on LG 55 inch tv 4k OLED. This means that video or movies that are not shot at high frame rate can get a strobe effect.

Audio Quality

The Lg features a powerful built-in speaker. The speaker system of this TV is a 2.2 ch that uses 40W of power.

LG 55 inch tv 4k claims that the speakers are on par with typical soundbar thus the reason why they call the speakers a built-in sound bard.

However, despite having powerful speakers and Dolby Atmos credentials, the performance of the audio quality is a bit questionable for us. Although, the audio quality of the built-in soundbar of the lg oled55e7n is by far better than the vast majority of its rivals.


In terms of gaming performance, the Lg has 21 ms input lag according to our tests. This will surely be loved by many gamers. The lower the input lag, the better the performance of the TV for gaming. As well as with motion handling performance.


The Lg oled55e7n also features a high refresh rate of 120 Hz which is commonly seen on high-end gaming monitors. This allows you to enjoy video games running at 120 frames per second for that fluidity of gameplay. As long as your hardware allows you to run at that frame rate.

Our Verdict

QLED is definitely the king of picture quality with its stunning and still top of the line overall image reproduction performance. For gaming, it might also be the king of console gaming.

So there are lots of reasons to consider the Lg no matter if you’re a movie lover or a hardcore or casual gamer.

The LG 55 inch tv 4k, without doubt, is a TV that we will highly recommend.
