5 ways the LG G3 OLED TV is better than the G2 – and 3 ways it’s worse

We’ve been testing and living with the LG G3 for about two weeks now, and it’s one of the best TVs ever made, as our comprehensive LG G3 review shows.

We think there are still a lot of people weighing up whether to opt for the new, full-price model or opt for an outgoing and therefore discounted G2 instead. This hopefully easy-to-digest summary of the ways it’s better – and the ways it’s not – is for those people. Let’s get down to business.

This is the big one. The major upgrade for the G3 is the addition of Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology, which uses a layer of microscopic lenses that focus the light from the OLEDs so that the screen can be brighter. Combined with a heatsink (something the G2 also had), the G3 can get much brighter than any OLED TV.
