LG OLED55C8PLA review

 

Small but significant improvements make this LG TV a superb all-rounder.

Brighter, punchier and sharper than last year’s models ; Fantastically natural images ; Amazing upscaling ; Loads of apps ; Stylish design

Motion processing could be better ; Setting menus are confusing ; Mediocre sound for the money

Individually small but collectively significant improvements make the C8 a superb all-rounder of a TV

Motion processing could be better ; Mediocre sound for the money

Small, across-the-board improvements make this the best OLED yet
