Surely the AI picture detection is for people who don't want calibration? After all, an accurate picture doesn't change depending on what kind of content you are watching does it?

The only content I consume is via Apple TV 4K and Xbox Series X, both output in 4K all the time. So my TV would never upscale anything. Could I even benefit from TV chip advancements?

Thanks for the link. You know what after digesting more info over the last 2 days that G1 is a beautiful looking display with real nice specs. For me right now the main contenders are Sony a90j 83 and LG G1 77.
can't wait to find out if the A90J uses this same new panel.
I'd be happy with either of the above 2 TVs tbh.

arent the sonys supposed to have better picture processing than the lG's ? your list is the same as mine, although i would add the panasonic this year to that list although the panasonic's often start quite expensive

I wouldn't like to say or not if the processing is any better on either as I'd no doubt be bombarded by owners and labelled a fanboy :D
The g1 looks real nice from what I've seen so far, loving the added gaming features and LG always have good spec like hdmi 2.1 for all 4 ports, nvidia gsync etc.
Most interested to see what these new gen 2 panels are like though:thumbsup:

yes the G1 will be a beauty when its hung on the wall. ive always had Panasonics...and this years has eveything i want and with the inclusion of gaming modes and low lag and VRR it sounds fantastic...although in my experience firmware fixes and customer service leaves little to be desired if there is a problem...LG seems to be pro active with the firmware fixes..such as the recent update which dimmed HDR mode in gaming a fix is coming this week i think. not sure about panel uniformity, tinting , banding etc though..i haven't owned an OLED yet and micro LED for the consumer seems years off, if at all for 65/75"

The AI malarkey by LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic etc is just marketing buzz nonsense! To attract the normal buyers who don't have a clue about picture settings or how to set up a tv properly.

LG's AI picture detection and all the other AI stuff is nothing like calibration. And it doesn't deliver a image as originally intended like LG wrongly claim.

It's the complete opposite - An inaccurate picture as it uses artificial digital noise reduction, artificial detail enhancement and artificial edge enhancement sharpening.

As others have previously said turn off all the AI junk in the picture settings 👍🏾 if you can't get it calibrated then use Filmmaker mode for dvd, blu ray & 4k blu ray movies. Which gives a very faithful authentic picture as the director intended.

This is interesting and raises questions about the G1, all areas and wording point to there only being a wall mount or optional new stand but not the usual small legs as a stand like in other models, yet look at LGs own page and you have the option to see what the G1 looks like on traditional stand legs:

Life is ON #[email protected]

and if they really are available from LG then awesome as I want a G1 on my tv cabinet, preferably without the need of a 3rd party vesa mount stand.

if this promotional material and other lg promo showing G1 TVs with legs is just that, promotional and not available with retail units (even if optional or extra) when they come out then that’s very misleading.

LG actually sell a separate stand for the 2020 Gallery G series OLEDs that fits on a tv cabinet. They sold it directly plus also available from a few online retailers. A similar stand will likely be available for the 2021 LG Gallery G1 OLEDs -

LG don't really mention the available separate stand. As they are pushing marketing the Gallery G Series OLEDs to be wall mounted like a picture frame. Or used with the contemporary LG floor stand.

Closest I got to this answer was a guy on AVS forums he owned a 2019 Sony OLED and had a 2020 LG oled panel, he said the Sony processing is excellent, but the LG CX had caught up and no real major difference anymore.


I wouldn't like to say or not if the processing is any better on either as I'd no doubt be bombarded by owners and labelled a fanboy :D

Still waiting for VT to do a sony vs lg showdown, he cheated in a recent video and said Sony offers the best motion processing but no CX panel present, so I call shenanigans !

That sounds promising, a 55 inch G1 is almost a definite buy from me if I can easily get the feet/stand with it, yay

I was about to pull the trigger on a 55" CX for gaming, but was wondering if it's worth holding out for the new tv's? I couldn't find a release date?

LG has started to list the C1 and G1 on their website, we also know Sonys new OLED is already up for pre-order on a US website.

Id butcher a wild guess between around April-May time frame, yet at the same time given TV sales must be at an all time high I would have thought they would ramp it up maybe quicker even.

I think it was just 2 models not full series but here they are:



if you scroll at bottom it does mention other sizes for c1, yeah bit tricky to find them on LG site actually there could be other links even I find it hard to find them.
