LG’s C-Series is evolving in small increments, but 2022 is a good year as the LG 55C2 – the 55-inch (140cm) version of the LG 65C2 we tested – features a new Oled Evo panel, a slightly more powerful processor and microphones are integrated into the TV and always-ready functionality. Which further improves one of the references of the television market.
The LG 55C2 we tested – the 55-inch (140cm) version of the LG 65C2 – remains one of the benchmarks in the TV market, offering a perfectly calibrated picture and a very high quality HDR experience. LG even offers itself the luxury of reducing the consumption of its Oled TV and improving the system’s responsiveness while increasing functionality. On the video processing side, LG doesn’t have much to prove anymore, both in terms of upscaling and motion compensation. If we add to this an undisguised lightness in video games, the LG 55C2 TV is a model of versatility, suitable for everyone: from film fans to video game enthusiasts, to sports or documentary enthusiasts. It’s hard to be disappointed with the LG C2.

The Samsung Neo Qled QE55QN95A – the 55-inch (140cm) version of the Samsung QE65QN95A we reviewed – is an excellent LCD TV. The use of a Mini Led backlight system allows to obtain a very high peak luminosity without causing an explosion of consumption and at the same time limiting the impact blooming (bright halo around bright objects). The icing on the cake, the image quality is just perfect. If we add to this the new remote control with its small solar panel and the One Connect box, it is almost flawless for this first Samsung Ultra HD Mini Led TV.
