LG's B6 series (and the 55-inch model I tested) proved to be yet another heavy-hitter from the company's 2016 lineup of organic light-emitting diode displays. Because each pixel operates independently and can turn off completely, OLEDs have a built-in advantage in terms of displaying convincing black, and operate on a naturally wider color spectrum than LED/LCD TVs (without quantum dot sheets). The "pure color" that OLED pixels emit lacks pollution from backlight intermingling, since there's no backlight.

In short, OLEDs tend to look great, and the B6 is certainly no slouch. Below, you'll find the standard dynamic range pre- and post-calibration results for the B6's ISF Expert (Dark Room) mode, including color gamut/color accuracy, RGB emphasis, grayscale, and gamma (gamma being the only wonky performance point both before and after).
