  • High level of contrast

  • Vivid and accurate color images

  • Clear and immersive audio

  • Good amount of ports and entrances


  • The power cord is not that long

Why buy a 4K screen? To enjoy the platforms of streaming most popular or to have a game gamer totally fluid? The model LG OLED C1 2021 ensures a satisfactory experience not only in this type of activity, but in everything that you would expect from a smart screen.

And for those who prefer televisions that do not occupy most of the table or wall, the OLED C1 2021 starts at 48 inches – the one I tested for this review – a size that is optimal if placed in a room or wide room. The other models are 55, 65 and 77 inches.

For the assembly of the screen, the intervention of two people is necessary, especially when removing the panel and mounting it on the base, which at the same time requires some screws to be completely firm.

To make the initial configuration process faster, the recommendation is to download the LG ThinQ application first, a kind of hub which also allows control and administration options for the brand’s linked devices.

Once assembled and set up, I proceeded to download my favorite entertainment apps, from the newcomer HBO Max to Apple TV Plus, as well as Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney Plus. I did not find another enabled app What I’m paying for: Paramount Plus; It is not a serious fault, but those who like productions like The Handmaid’s Tale, Yellowstone, Your Honor, Dexter Y Californication in Mexico, they may have to connect their Roku to the television, a multimedia player in which that application is available.

Also, I decided to set Alexa as the main assistant, especially to search and play content from the remote control (more details on the remote later).

Image and sound

It is almost certain that a next-generation screen from a recognized manufacturer will not disappoint, such as the LG OLED C1 2021. Inside, the device stores millions of pixels of self-illumination to achieve a perfect black, “infinite contrast” and a color precise.

It also supports Dolby Vision IQ standards – intelligently modifying image settings based on content and surroundings – and HDR 10 Pro, LG’s proprietary technology that adjusts brightness to enhance color and intensifies HDR material. normal.

Already in practice, compatible productions look of a higher level and quality. Details are well defined, even in graphics where dark tones predominate.

In the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, one of my favorites to check the response offered by the screens, especially since it transitions from bright to dark colors, the experience is truly immersive. The television “unveils” new content, a more vivid one, even if it has already been seen before.

Along with the image, the sound is just as powerful. The LG OLED C1 2021 also supports Dolby Atmos, a standard that offers multi-dimensional surround audio. Plus, the new Automatic Volume Leveling feature keeps voice levels consistent no matter what is being displayed on the screen. This results in a powerful and clear sound, even when a high volume level is chosen.

Adjusting image and audio intelligently is thanks to the α9 Gen4 AI Processor 4K, “an innovative chip that uses deep learning algorithms to analyze and optimize content,” says the manufacturer.

Regarding the experience gamingThe most interesting thing is that the screen has a refresh rate of 120 Hz for a smoother gaming session, as well as the G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync Premium certifications. These features seek that players also have more precise and lag-free entertainment sessions.


The LG OLED C1 2021 represents my debut with the webOS operating system, but the real question is does it give what it takes for the owner of the screen to have everything they need with the idea of ​​entertainment?

The first caveat is that you shouldn’t expect that simple experience offered by media players on their interface, from Roku to Fire TV.

Some notifications, weather information, trending content – mainly live channels – and the list of applications are highlighted on the home screen of the LG TV. It is in this last section where the different video platforms will be displayed in streaming Y apps that allow from activating the art gallery to running the web browser that is included in the television.

The following section highlights the Home Panel, which allows you to link different smart devices, whether from the LG brand or from other manufacturers, and configure Apple’s AirPlay and HomeKit.

Already in the following sections it is possible to find recently viewed channels, those offered by LG, featured content from platforms such as YouTube and Prime Video, and new releases.

It takes time to get used to the webOS operating system, to the different sections that its interface displays, but nothing that cannot be overcome with the daily use of the screen.

The remote control, Magic Remote, also makes learning faster. It incorporates shortcuts to Netflix, Prime Video and Disney Plus, buttons that allow you to activate the Google Assistant, Alexa or LG’s artificial intelligence, and an element to display a kind of pointer for faster selection.

In general, the interface of the LG OLED C1 2021 feels complete, ready for moviegoers and content lovers in streaming Find your favorite movie or series, or order it from the assistant of your choice.

Connections and design

To connect the different entertainment devices, from consoles to multimedia players, the screen has four HDMI inputs (2.1) and three USB ports, mainly. But it also uses the wireless Bluetooth connection (5.0) to link from next-generation speakers to the smartphone, for example.

In this sense, the possibility of the user having to disconnect and connect cables is reduced, as perhaps they did with their previous device.

The various audio and video ports are located on the left side of the TV, on the wide base behind the OLED panel. While the power cord is located on the right side.

In more of the design, on the front, just below the screen, the elegant metal base stands out, where an “LG OLED” can be read on the far right.
