Reviewers from Expertreviews have found the following[***]:
The LG BX is the entry-level 4K OLED from LG for 2020. The 55in model landed in the UK for an astonishingly low £1,399. It has since come down in price by about £200, making it one of the cheapest OLEDs on the market. With multi-HDR support, HDMI 2.1 connectivity and next-gen gaming features such as VRR, it's a remarkably well-rounded TV. It's already a steal and if it comes down much further in the holiday sales it'll be the theft of the century.

The LG BX OLED is the entry-level TV in LG's 2020 4k OLED lineup. It sits below the LG CX OLED and it replaces the LG B9 OLED from 2019. Like all OLED TVs, the BX has an infinite contrast ratio since it can turn off individual pixels, resulting in perfect blacks. It has an incredible response time, but it's not as good as some other OLED TVs.

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The LG BX is the Korean brand's OLED honeypot flatscreen. It sports a third-gen Alpha 7 processor, albeit with AI smarts to enhance clarity and improve the user experience. LG's much-lauded webOS smart platform enjoys an AI upgrade and comes with a full fist of streaming services, but there's no Freeview Play.

  • AI smarts
