Two issues stand out about the 65-inch LG G6 OLED TV right from the off: its beautiful design and its eye-watering price.
Where the latter is concerned, £6,000 is clearly a large chunk of money to think about dropping on a 65-inch TV. However, the OLED65G6V’s design is so extraordinary that your hand automatically begins creeping towards your wallet as quickly as you have a look at.
Seriously, the sight of the LG G6’s screen sitting on a body that’s less than 3mm deep appears just like the eighth wonder of the trendy world. Mainly given that the majority of the sub-3mm panel has been created of glass rather than boring old metal or plastic.
Design and Connections
The OLED65G6V’s beautiful slenderness is possible because LG has shifted all the TV’s brains and connections into the distinctive desktop view that juts back behind the screen’s bottom edge. This stand can be rotated back to the screen to type a wall mount if you want, and also sports a top quality, full-width soundbar connected to its front.
This soundbar gives a startling 60W of power over a 4.2-channel speaker configuration, and even works so far as to build speakers into two of its sides so that it can always give forward-firing sound regardless of whether you have wall hung the TV or sat it on a piece of furniture.

Curiously and, as it set out eventually, unfairly, my first response of the OLED65G6’s audio wasn’t fully positive.
Extra prolonged listening to some action film sources, though, shows that whereas it might not sound quite as forward as the E6, the OLED65G6 delivers quite a bit more refinement, detail, and management – features which add as much as an overall more immersive sound performance.
What you will find here is a refined speaker arrangement that even works very properly as a hi-fi system for enjoying music – something I may not have ever said earlier than about a TV’s built-in sound system.back to menu ↑
With those three points now gone, the G6 is deadly near a good 10 score. The reason it receives a 9 here as an alternative is that LG will quickly launch a less costly curved model (C6) and an even less costly flat model, each with similar picture performance at a lower price. If the latter of those two comes in, we will break out the champagne and get a few days off to bask in its beauty.
With that announced, the G6 has its place as a flagship TV with each impeccable style and deep, deep substance. It even sounds surprisingly good. If you need a TV that’s as much a piece of art as it’s a top-tier display, then the G6 is one of the best option available right now. And at $8,000 for the 65-inch model, it’s LG’s least costly flagship OLED yet.
