Here's what our reviewer had to say:
The C8, like the bulk of LG’s 2018 OLEDs, uses the new Alpha 9 intelligent processor. This high performance silicon boasts the most advanced image processing we’ve yet seen on a consumer TV, and image quality is unequivocally exceptional, once you navigate the thick forest of screen modes.
The C8’s HDR performance is dramatic and bright. The C8 has no problem handling spectral highlights, which when coupled with deep rich blacks, translates to deliciously dynamic pictures. Shadow detail in near blacks is also exceptional, and the vibrancy of colour and sheer tangible detail in 4K content can be astonishing and the C8 also looks superb with HD material. There’s just so much to enjoy in its images.
There's also AI, with LG’s webOS platform adding intuitive search and voice control. You can even verbally select picture modes.
The C8 also looks consistently fabulous with games, with a lag of just 21.1ms, which is excellent. Oh and there's a Dolby Atmos decoder, which works with streamed content from Netflix, as well as external sources such as Sky Q. Just hook up your set-top box to the TV and use HDMI ARC to send Atmos to a compatible sound system.
This is one of the finest OLEDs to date. For gaming it is better than the Sony AF8, and those who love a really vivid, bright (but not 'unreal'-looking) image will also favour this TV. However the Sony has narrowly superior upgrading of SDR material to HDR and motion handling, and notably better audio.
