LG OLED Evo G3 TV Review

The world of television is one that never ceases to evolve. Each year, we bear witness to advancements that redefine our home entertainment experience. But, every once in a while, a product emerges that not only sets a new benchmark but truly captures the essence of what next-generation viewing should be. Enter the LG OLED evo G3 TV – a spectacular culmination of design, technology, and sheer viewing pleasure. If the name sounds like it’s promising a revolution, then let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. Dive into this review as we unwrap the magic behind LG’s latest masterpiece, the OLED Evo G3, and explore if it’s truly as amazing as the buzz suggests.

 

What changes in OLED evo televisions?

If you look closely at the name of this TV, you will easily notice the addition of the acronym “EVO”, which helps to recognize the models that embrace the evolution of OLED technology. What changes in OLED evo televisions? The real news lies in the peak brightness that individual pixels can reach, which, according to LG itself, has now increased by 70%.

It seems an irrelevant percentage, in reality, it makes a huge difference because traditionally OLED televisions reached a brightness very far from that necessary to correctly reproduce HDR content.

The new results are obtained thanks to a new panel and an optimization of image processing: this drastically improves the visibility of the panels installed on the new models and in particular on this LG OLED evo G3 TV.

The increase in brightness makes the use of televisions more flexible and allows you to obtain better results even in very bright rooms. In practice, this new solution makes the use of an OLED television in the home more pleasant.

 

LG OLED evo G3 TV design and technical specifications

As always, our LG OLED evo G3 TV review will go to the heart of the product, without the frills that we have never liked so much. And the first details of this TV to underline are of an aesthetic nature: it is evident that this smart TV was born with the vocation of being hung on the wall with a “clean” installation, without visible cables.

We say this because the curious thing is that the support base to be used on a piece of furniture or on a table is sold in a separate package, a choice dictated by weight and size.

The edges are in aluminum, with finishes made with extraordinary care: the thickness of this TV is indeed greater than that of other models on the market, but it is equally true that greater solidity and care are perceived. The thickness is also justified by a heat sink on the panel, which is necessary to be able to raise the brightness of the pixels without damaging them.

We tried the 55-inch version of LG OLED evo G3, but there are different sizes available: 55″, 65″, 77″ and 83″, with a significant price range, as is normal.

Wanting to focus our attention on the technical specifications, we can certainly take a look at the connections, which are based on four HDMI inputs, all capable of supporting a 4k definition with 120Hz, of which port number two is also enabled for the eARC standard.

Alongside these four inputs, we must also count three USB A ports, the CAM module for encrypted programs, the antenna for digital terrestrial, that for the satellite receiver, the optical audio output, and the network connection.

Obviously, LG OLED Evo G3 TV also offers full support for wireless connections, through Wi-Fi networks. A very important issue is that of consumption, the typical absorption of this TV is around 77 W.

The topic of consumption leads us to another detail of the technical sheet, because as mentioned the new OLED televisions evo manage to produce greater brightness, but this detail does not come from a higher consumption of electricity, but from the use of what is called Micro Lens Array, a layer of small lenses that amplify the brightness of the images.

At the heart of this system is a processor based on artificial intelligence algorithms, sixth generation Alpha 9, capable of managing a solution called Brightness Booster Max.

If the LG OLED evo G3 datasheet doesn’t seem powerful enough, we have to add solutions such as the variable refresh rate, to which we can add 120Hz HDMI inputs, which combined with a powerful Game Optimizer allow you to take advantage of this TV with video games with more advanced without showing any signs of weakness.

 

LG OLED evo G3 TV software

As with all LG-branded televisions, LG OLED evo G3 TV is also based on the WebOS operating system, which the company has developed, improved, and optimized over the years, to arrive at the current result, which is probably one of the best in absolute the market.

In some ways, not even a solution like Android TV can really match the score with webOS, which benefits from LG’s extraordinary experience in this area.

The software is extraordinarily complete, but at the same time simple to use, without many frills, and with all the features needed for the most common habits.

There is full support for Apple’s AirPlay standard, so you can take advantage of a perfect coexistence with iPhone, iPad, and Mac, things not taken for granted for many other products out there.

Not only that, but this TV can function as a smart home hub, thanks to full compatibility with the Matter standard, which also allows it to fit into the smart home with the ability to communicate with devices of different brands in a very simple way.

What we really liked is the way LG has evolved its software, combining a first-level menu, which governs all the main functions, with a more articulated tree, which allows you to manage even the most advanced options.

WebOS is fully compatible with all major applications that are used today for streaming and the importance of LG on the market induces anyone to immediately create an application compatible with this operating system when a new service is launched.

 

The remote control of the LG OLED Evo G3 TV

The LG OLED evo G3 remote control perfectly recharges those of other models in circulation, with a particular feature, which cannot leave you indifferent, that is, that of a sort of pointer that works a bit like a mouse, which some love and others at the same way they detest.

We are among those who appreciate the use of the pointer, which in many situations is extremely more practical than the movement guaranteed by other televisions with the sole use of arrows.

On the remote, there are also shortcuts to some of the main streaming services, as is now the case with almost all remote controls in circulation.

 

How LG OLED evo G3 TV works

An important detail must be underlined before delving into the functioning of this TV: not all models of the same family behave in the same way, even if the different one is the 83″ model, which will probably have a very small number of users.

The difference lies in the fact that that version of the LG OLED evo G3 family does not use the Micro Lens Array panel, the one we have already written about, or the secret of the superpower of brightness, the one that concentrates the light coming out of the pixels outwards preventing it from being dispersed and bringing the 55″ model to produce 70% more light, without changing consumption.

Obviously, the impact of the images changes according to the adjustments that are applied and there are many modes already pre-set: among the many, cinema, sports, and standard, there is also a FilmMaker mode which automatically enters into operation when it detects suitable content.

LG OLED evo G3 TV supports HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision, but does not support HDR10+ metadata, which is mainly used in Prime video content. However, it is true that Prime Video also uses Dolby Vision encoding, so the differences are so small that they are practically not perceived.

There are also some quite original options, such as the possibility of dividing the screen into two by choosing what to see in each of the two parts, you can choose two applications at the same time, or digital terrestrial television channels alongside the Internet browser.

In some cases, it can be helpful for those living with multitasking anxiety. Obviously, there is full compatibility with the world of Amazon Alexa, even if first we should begin to question whether it is really appropriate to give all this data for free to Amazon, without a real reason for doing so.

Unless this is the only product compatible with the Amazon assistant you have at home, the experience gained over the years has taught us that using the voice to manage the TV can actually be useful, but not essential.

The sound quality of LG OLED Evo G3

When choosing a new TV, one always finds himself faced with the doubt whether the Native audio may be sufficient or whether it is also necessary to buy a soundbar: in the case of LG OLED evo G3, the audio quality is good, provided that you do not use the mode with sound managed by artificial intelligence.

It is curious how the audio, generally very good, of this television gets drastically worse when using this artificial intelligence algorithm, which practically cancels every imaginable low frequency to return a sound loaded with highs and mids that makes you lose any kind of drama to the brightest images.

If the curiosity is: can you use LG OLED evo G3 without a soundbar? The answer is positive, but you have to make a pact with blood, pledging not to use the artificial intelligence mode.

This TV is obviously compatible with any soundbar that supports the eARC standard, but it offers its best when you combine a product from the LG world because you can take advantage of LG’s WOW Orchestra System. When the external equipment is connected, the TV speakers still continue to work in perfect synchrony, to create an effect similar to that of the sound of the orchestra. We have not tried it, but we trust the description.

 

How much does LG OLED evo G3 cost?

The price of the LG OLED Evo G3 TV is in line with the tradition of the brand and with the quality level it represents, in particular for the technological novelty it offers its users.

To translate all this into numbers, the price of the 55″ LG OLED Evo G3 is around 2,000 euros, while the more exaggerated expression, the 83″ one, is around 4,500 euros.

As always happens, the prices refer to the period in which we are writing the LG OLED evo G3 review and are subject to the usual fluctuations.

 

LG OLED evo G3 TV review, the conclusions

 

The LG OLED evo G3 TV review went well beyond our intentions because we would have preferred to write three simple lines, in which we could have repeated the term amazing many times.

This is a simply wonderful object, whose quality is indisputable for many reasons, in particular for the near-perfect level reached by the images, to which we forgot to add another fundamental aspect: there is practically no reflection created by this screen.

We deeply loved every minute spent during our LG OLED evo G3 test, we are convinced that for those who recognize the value of the TV and also for the advanced technology it contains, this is truly an excellent purchase. Expensive, but excellent.
