The LG G6 (OLED65G6P) is $8,000 for a reason: it kicks butt. Outside of the posh design and new-fangled playback functions (read: HDR), you're paying for hands down one of the best TVs we've ever tested. Because it's quite a bit brighter than past OLED models, the G6 boasts awesome contrast and the same great black levels OLED is known for.

It's also apparently capable of a much wider color range, though we unfortunately didn't get to check if LG's claim of 99% DCI-P3 was completely accurate—but it is quite believable.

I also didn't have time for a full calibration, and instead opted to compare the TV's out-of-the-box ISF Expert Dark Room picture mode to the new HDR Effect mode, which lends an HDR appearance to non-HDR content. You can think of it like a 2D to 3D conversion, but for High Dynamic Range.

Below, you'll find side-by-side results with caption explanations for the G6's core performance in color accuracy, RGB/grayscale tracking, and gamma. If you have questions about any results, please ask in comments or e-mail me directly.

Picture Settings

LG-G6-Calibration
Because I didn't quite have time for a full Rec.709 calibration of the LG G6, I chose instead to gather results from two SDR-applicable picture modes.

Color Accuracy

LG-G6-Color
In both the ISF Expert Dark Room and HDR Effect modes, the G6 tested with a high degree of color accuracy and a low degree of color error.

RGB & Grayscale
