The high-end of LG televisions is made up of two different series that came to light in 2020 with the LG CX and LG GX televisions. A couple of years have passed since then, and LG has been improving these two series separately. And, although at first we could see few differences between the two, today we can highlight a few interesting differences between the two models of the Korean brand.
Support and anchors
One of the big differences between these two series is the way the televisions are mounted . Those of the C range have a central support that allows you to place the Smart TV on a table. It also has the typical VESA anchor behind it in case you want to place it on the wall.
At the same time, the G range is directly oriented to wall mounting . Its design is slimmer, and there is no base. To install it, we must buy a correct anchor for our living room. There are ways to install them without anchoring them -LG has its own base that is what you will see in stores and fairs-, but it is not ideal.
Panel size and prices
Current LG C2 OLED televisions start at 42 inches , and are also sold with diagonals of 48, 55, 65, 77 and 83 inches . The LG G2 OLED models start from a higher step, since the cheapest model has a 55-inch panel. After this model, the jumps are identical to those just mentioned in the C2, with the exception that, after the 83-inch model, there is a 97-inch G2 model.
This is also noticeable in the price. In equal inches, the ‘Gallery’ range – that is, the G2 models – are considerably more expensive .
quality and shine
These two sections have also been distancing themselves over the generations. While in previous generations both models sported a virtually identical panel, the 2022 OLED Evo models show some differences.
The LG C2 offers 10% more brightness than the C1 it replaces. However, the G2 shines 30% brighter than the G1. Therefore, the G2 wins again in this section , as it is the model that performs best in very well lit environments.
Both ranges offer quality sound, with support for multiple technologies such as Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby AC-4.
C2 models feature a 40-watt 2.2 system. However, the G2 TVs go one step further, going to a 60-watt 4.2 configuration. In practice, LG G2 Smart TVs offer a much more realistic and in-depth experience.
Design and materials
The two top-of-the-range models from LG have also differed on this point since their inception. LG CX televisions and their respective evolutions are aimed at the home . On the other hand, the variants of the LG GX are slimmer, and pursue design above all else.
In this aspect, although the Gallery models look more aesthetic, everything will depend on our tastes and what we are willing to spend on one television or another.
