Looks: LG A2 OLED TV Review
It has a slim body design with negligible bezels giving this TV a premium look. Its profile is so thin that it appears there is nothing behind the TV. Connectivity options on the back are covered. This is a very thin panel as no lightning is required behind the OLED panel.
Connectivity Options: Best 48 Inch Smart TV LED TV in India
It has 3 HDMI ports (one is HDMI 2.1 eARC), 2 USB ports, and all other essential connectivity options. The A1 model of 2021 had only one HDMI eARC port, but it was HDMI 2.0 eARC port. The number of USB ports is the same i.e, 2 in both the 2021 and 2022 models.
Panel and Brightness: LG A2 OLED TV Review
It is a 60Hz panel with no VRR. Its peak HDR brightness is 540 nits. Brightness reduces in the future as pixels get dim. In a 10% window, its brightness was 1400 nits. This means the pixels can go as bright as 1400 nits in a particular area if required. However, its brightness is around 500-550 nits which is fine. LG has used AI brightness, a beautiful feature for watching day-to-day content.

Video features: LG A2 OLED TV Review
It supports HDR10 Pro, HLG, and Dolby Vision IQ. Dolby Vision IQ will optimize the picture quality as per the lighting of your room. There is no issue with colors or brightness and hence it is a good feature with Dolby Vision integration. The grey uniformity test was brilliant (10/10). The greys were extremely uniform in 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% & 100% window. Only an OLED panel can give such uniform greys.
Contrast and colors:
As per LG, it has an infinite contrast ratio. All OLED panels have an infinite contrast ratio. You get perfect blacks as pixels shut off when required. This TV showed the best blacks. LG has used an Alpha 7 Gen 5 picture processor which gives 100% color fidelity and volume. It means that its color profile is absolutely natural. The colors are rich, vibrant, and vivid. They are absolutely natural. What does it mean in a real-life scenario?
“For example when you see a photograph in a TV, then you see faded colors. But this doesn’t happen in this TV or any OLED TV. Colors will appear exactly same as they were in photograph. They are absolutely natural.”
It also comes with the support of Active HDR and HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping. What is that? If a scene has both dark and bright colors, then tone mapping will adjust the brightness to show the exact colors the filmmaker has tried to show. You will see different colors and shadows with no shortcomings whatsoever.
You can see the minutest details in shadows. Everything is crystal clear. This TV shows the best colors. It produces such unique colors due to infinite contrast. With infinite contrast, you get absolutely natural colors. You will see details even in dark Dolby Vision scenes, and you will not miss anything. Even the bright Dolby Vision scenes look excellent due to Dolby Vision IQ.
OS and remote:
Best 48 inch smart LED TV in India comes with WEB 0S 22 out of the box. It is light and familiar software with pre-downloaded apps and a magic remote (Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Hotstar hotkeys). It supports Google Assistant, Alexa, and Apple Airplay. Both Android and Apple devices can be easily cast.
Upscaling of SD channels in this 48-inch OLED TV was good. Upscaling and colors of HD channels are far better. Color and blacks are just unique. Upscaling of 720p content was terrific. 1080p content was satisfactory. As we switched to 4K content we were stunned. It gave us a cinematic experience. It will perform excellently in dark rooms.
In our LG A2 OLED TV review, we found that its audio quality is just average. It has 20W down-firing speakers with Dolby Atmos support (Dolby Atmos badging will appear in Dolby Atmos content). LG’s claim of the 5.1.2 virtual audio mix is not valid. Its speakers are average and a good soundbar is a must for a cinematic experience.
It has the best viewing angles, even better than an IPS panel. This OLED panel shows no color or brightness loss. The color and brightness from front and center are absolutely gorgeous.
Burn-in issue: Best TV Under 70000
Yes! You will get burn-in issues if you play STB content every day for long hours and for a long time. The organic pixels undergo burn-in. LG has provided various features to delay it, but it can’t be stopped. No matter how expensive a TV you buy, there will be a burn-in issue in later stages. How to stop it?
- Don’t buy this TV for STB content, as in STB content, the permanent logo gets burn-in. LG has given ‘Logo brightness adjust’ to protect burn-in but it can never be stopped.
- Gamers should keep changing games to avoid burn-in. It comes with ALLM but not Gsyn or frysync. The 60 Hz panel is average for gaming. As per LG, its response time is 1 ms. It supports HGIG which means you get HDR support in gaming too. This is amazing and nothing can be better than this.
Pros & Cons:
- Its color optimization is fantastic. As per the grey uniformity test, its colors are quite uniform.
- These colors are absolutely natural with no over-saturation. All OLEDs give the best blacks in the world as the pixels turn off and no light is there.
- 540-550 nits peak HDR brightness is decent. It is not the best but as compared to other OLED TVs in this range, it is good. The best part is that this TV can show absolute brightness when required in a scene.
- In our LG A2 OLED TV review, we discovered that the HDR content appears amazing due to the infinite contrast. Better the contrast, the better the colors.
- It is not a bad TV for gaming. For gaming, it is average as it doesn’t have a 120 Hz panel. You should buy this TV for content and not gaming.
- The art gallery in LG’s menu options gives you a picture frame look per our LG A2 OLED TV review. We suggest you wall mount it as it looks good. The wall mounts are solid.
- It is not a perfect gaming TV with a 120Hz panel. It is average for gaming. Its ALLM with a 1 ms response time translates to normal gaming. Gamers with gaming consoles won’t be disappointed.
- No OLED TV is good for watching STB (set-top box). A normal VA or IPS panel TV is good for STB content. This TV will give burn-in issues later.
- Speakers are average and a good soundbar is a must for a cinematic experience.
Verdict: LG A2 OLED TV Review
Asper our LG A2 OLED TV review, this is the best TV
- For cinematic experience
- For rooms with less light or if you watch TV at night
- If you aren’t a serious gamer but want the best colors and blacks
- If you want an actual cinema hall feel.
This is the best TV in this budget according to our LG A2 OLED TV review. You can watch STB content but with a limit. We played a lot of STB content, and till now we didn’t face any burn-in issues. Burn-in is real, but it happens after a long time when you continuously watch one channel for hours every day.
