Picture Quality

LG OLED C7 series is also able to produce bright picture due its very bright peak brightness, even slight brighter than the predecessor C6 or B6 series. This makes the quality of the picture is still preserved well when used in a bright room. Additionally, although not as bright as what reached by top model OLED TV like Sony X930E series or Samsung KS series of last year, peak brightness reached by OLED C7 is also bright enough to make its HDR performance is great. As we know, Sony X930E series or Samsung KS series are including the brightest TVs with about 1500 nits of peak brightness while what reached by OLED C7 is still below 1000 nits. But even so, peak brightness reached by OLED C7P is at least still brighter than 550 nits as the minimum standardization to get Ultra HD Premium Certification set for OLED TV.

Moving on color performance, color of picture that displayed on the screen of LG OLED C7 also looks very saturated. Behind it, there are 4 sub pixels color technology which supported by the number of most advanced technologies like Tru Color Accuracy, Cinematic Color, and more. The result, it can delivers about 95% of DCI P3 color space, similar to what reached by OLED B6 or C6 series of 2016 model. Of course, this makes the color of the picture displayed looks very accurate, even when displaying HDR contents that require wide color gamut. As we know, for displaying HDR 10 contents, color gamut required is at least 90% of DCI P3 color space, while what reached by OLED C7P is wider than that.

Motion Handling and 24p Playback

In addition awesome picture quality, LG OLED C7 is also a great TV when used for displaying fast moving images like sports program or fast movies. Its pixel response time is very fast, far faster than fastest LED TV. The result, the picture displayed is nearly perfect without motion blur. This means, there is almost no trail noticeable following fast moving object. On the other hand, LG OLED C7 is also a great TV when displaying 24p movies. No matter the source, whether it is 24p movies from Blur Ray, 24p via 60i signals like movies from Satellite TV, or even 24p via 60p signals like movies from streaming media, all of them displayed clearly and smoothly on the screen of OLED C7 without a judder.

Additionally, it also provides 3 USB ports for connecting with other media like USB flash disk, Camcorder, Digital Camera, and others. In addition to HDMI and USB ports, there are also Composite In (AV In), RF In (Terrestrial), Audio Output ((Optical), and more. But unlike the 2016 models, there is no Component In on OLED C7. 3 HDMI Ports and 2 USB ports are located on side panel while the others are located on rear panel. Meanwhile, talking about the input lags, LG OLED C7P has very low input lag regardless the resolution of the source.

Smart TV

As the smart TV platform, LG OLED C7 features WebOS version 3.5. Compared to last year model, there are some upgrades and updates that make it offer better performance especially on the hardware that supports it. The result, its performance is faster and more responsive than last year version.   To access one of them, you just need to direct the pointer and click the home button  like the use of mouse on pc.
