Two years later and things don’t seem to be any better. The OLED
panel on my pre-production unit still has the same issues as the
LG G Flex. In low brightness in a dark room, the screen is grainy
and has “dirty” looking horizontal banding all over it. The light
level is also woefully uneven, with hotspots blazing out of the
left and right corners.
Above, I’ve pitted the LG V30 against the Galaxy S8 in an attempt
to capture the issues on camera.
The difference isn’t subtle. It’s night and day. The Samsung display looks uniformly gray. The LG display looks like shit.
