Summary

LG GX OLED is a new TV in LG's 2020 lineup with a unique 'Gallery' design. The LG GX is an excellent TV and like most OLEDs, it delivers exceptional picture quality. It doesn't stand out much against the cheaper LG CX OLED, so if you need a stand or you simply want to VESA-mount the TV, the GX isn't worth it for its price.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The GX OLED may be a looker from the outside, but nearly all other improvements for 2020 are hidden inside. WebOS, LG's smart TV platform and operating system, has been overhauled. The TV's aesthetic is undeniably sexy, and LG has every right to charge a little extra for it.

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The LG GX OLED is a new TV in LG's 2020 lineup with a unique 'Gallery' design. It displays a wide color gamut for HDR content, but it has an aggressive Automatic Brightness Limiter, so large areas aren't bright. Like any OLED, it has the risk of permanent burn-in, which can be an issue if you watch content with static elements all the time. Its main competitors are the LG CX OLED, the Sony A8H OLED, and the Samsung The Frame 2020.

Pros[**]
  • Extremely bright OLED panel
  • Finite contrast ratio
  • Excellent black uniformity
Cons[**]
  • Not compatible with wall mount

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The 65in OLED65GX reviewed here sells for £3,199. All four HDMIs support 4K 120fps making the TV a leading contender if you're planning to buy a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X games console. LG's Alpha 9 Gen 3 image processor adds subjective detail, without unwanted edge emphasis or ringing. New this year is ThinQ AI voice recognition with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in.

  • Dolby Vision IQ and AI Sound Pro modes
  • Good selection of on-demand streaming services
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The LG Gallery Series GX OLED is a home cinema lover's dream come true. It uses all the latest specs and standards, from Dolby Vision and Atmos to Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, from Chromecast Built-in to AirPlay 2.0. It's not absolutely flawless as it still can't reach the brightness levels of some LED-LCD TVs and has some audio balancing issues, but otherwise it's still a slick flatscreen for folks who don't mind spending a bit more money on their next TV purchase.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful 4K/HDR picture
  • Dolby Vision and Atmos
  • Great motion processing
Cons[**]
  • Limited brightness and overly reflective glass screen

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The LG GX OLED TV costs a pretty penny, maxing out at $6,000 for the 77-inch screen. All three sizes offer the same collection of features, from an impressive port array to LG's α9 Gen 3 AI Processor 4K. Like the LG CX, color accuracy is a highlight of the GX.

Cons[**]
  • Lacks Dolby Vision IQ and Filmmaker Mode
