The LG NANO90 is the most expensive TV of the NanoCell series. It was equipped with an IPS panel and therefore produces a passable picture especially in bright surroundings with a wide viewing angle. In dark surroundings, however, its performance is not quite as good due to the shallow black and the moderate contrast ratio. Although it has Full Array Local Dimming, it cannot become bright enough to display HDR content impressively. The gaming performance is very well rounded. The panel has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an HMDI 2.1 interface is also provided, enabling VRR, ALLM and [email protected]

LG BX OLED 2020

OLED Panel
OLED Panel
The LG BX is LG's cheapest OLED, but still doesn't need to hide from the other models of the lineup. Like all other OLED TVs, it has perfect blacks and a theoretically infinite contrast ratio, which gives it impressive picture quality including a wide viewing angle - especially in dark rooms. But this great picture quality decreases with increasing ambient brightness, which is partly due to the not very high brightness and partly due to the Automatic Brightness Limiter, which lowers the brightness in large bright scenes to protect the organic light emitting diodes from overheating. As far as gaming is concerned, it has the same features as the NANO90, but can display movements more clearly due to the almost instantaneous response time movements, which results in less blurring.

Our conclusion:
A really clear winner

When comparing the OLED and the NanoCell TV, it becomes obvious quite quickly that the NANO90 is ahead in hardly any discipline. In bright surroundings, its picture quality is very similar to that of the BX, but the darker the surroundings the more obvious is the class difference between the two models. The OLED design is clearly superior to the IPS panel technology. Besides the picture quality, the motion handling, the viewing angle and the HDR performance of the BX is much better, so that for the extra price you also get a higher quality product. In the gaming category the two perform similarly well as both have a 120Hz panel and an HDMI 2.1 interface with everything that goes with it. But gaming on the BX is still more fun, which is due to the motion handling and the OLED picture quality.
