LG C9 vs C8 Review

LG C9 is a part of LG’s 2019 4K HDR OLED TV lineup. In this lineup, it sits between the LG B9 and E9. On the other hand, the LG C8 is its predecessor, a part of LG’s 2018 4K HDR OLED TV. In the market, they both are available in 3 screen sizes option, which are 55 inches (OLED55C8 vs OLED55C9, 65 inches (OLED65C8 vs OLED65C9, and 77 inches (OLED77C8 vs OLED77C9). The LG C9 comes to replaces the OLED C8 in the market. On the other hand, even though the LG B8 has been discontinued by the manufacture due to it has replaced by the LG C9, but it is still available on some certain merchants. Meanwhile with the same, the OLED C9 is priced hundreds of dollar more expensive than the OLED C8. Nevertheless, this is more due to the price of the LG C8 has been dropped because it is a 2018 model , while the LG C9 still has a full price or if its price has dropped, its markdown is not too a lot or not as many as on OLED C8.

As we have known, all models of OLED TV have almost the same picture quality. Regardless it is the cheapest model or the most expensive model, their picture quality is almost the same. If there is a difference, it is usually on their peak brightness or due to panel variance. Meanwhile, the difference among each model is more on their design and features that offered. As well as the LG C8 and C9, even though they are released in different years, but there is no significant improvement in picture quality offered by the LG C9 as the newer model from the LG C8 predecessor. Nevertheless, in term of features, the OLED C9 brings some new features that expected can help the users to easily make a setting to get maximum picture quality and performance.

What are the Main Differences between the LG C9 and C8?

Design

LG C9 vs C8 Side

The LG C8 and C9 actually have almost similar design. But even so, there is a minor change on the design of their stand. Their stand might have the same length, but the stand of LG C9 is not as tall as the stand of LG C8. Additionally, design of the stand of the LG C9 is also a bit different to the stand of LG C8. The stand of the OLED C8 is slightly curved, while the stand of OLED C9 is straight shape. Nevertheless, basically, their stand is equally very sturdy and can both support the screen fairly well, so there is only very little wobble. On the other hand, their back is nearly identical.  The lower half of their back is made from plastic and has the same design. This is where all inputs, cable management, and electronic parts are housed. Meanwhile, the upper half of is the back of the OLED panel. The difference, the upper half of LG C9 is darker than the LG C8. But even so, overall, regardless their minor difference, their design is equally excellent.

Image Processor

The other major improvement brought by the LG OLED C9 from the predecessor OLED C8 is on their image processor.  As we see on comparison table above, the LG C8 is powered by the Alpha 9 Intelligence Processor, while the LG C9 is powered by its second generation, which is Alpha 9 Gen 2. LG claims the second generator of this chipset is more powerful than the predecessor. But there is no explanation in detail about their difference on their official website. But surely, with Alpha 9 Gen 2 Chipset behind it, The AI (Artificial Intelligence is not just applied on its smart TV, but also on some features for maximizing the picture quality and sound of LG C9. On the other hand, for LG C8, the AI has actually been applied, but this is just limited for its Smart TV platform.

AI-Related Features

AI Picture

As we have mentioned, the LG C9 comes with some AI Related features thanks to the Alpha 9 Gen 2 chipset. One of the AI-related features brought by the LG OLED C9 is AI Picture. This feature can automatically optimize images by analyzing the quality of the source and identify the issue like blurred detail, banding, jagged edges and image block noise. And based on the issue found, the images will be optimized by AI Related Algorithm to achieve optimal sharpness enhancement, detail improvement, and noise reduction.

AI Brightness

The other feature based on AI is AI Brightness. This feature can automatically adjust the HDR tone mapping based on ambient light to get brighter HDR images, particularly in a room with high ambient light. Additionally, this feature also can work with Dolby Vision content that already used dynamic metadata where the HDR tone mapping is optimized on scene by scene.

AI Sound

In addition to optimize picture quality, the LG C9 also has AI related feature that can be used to optimize sound, which is AI Sound.  Even though both LG C8 and LG C9 have the same speaker configuration (2.2 channel speak system with 40 watts of total audio power output), but with AI Sound feature, the LG C9 is able to up-mix stereo source to 5.1 channel virtual surround sound. Additionally, AI Sound can also automatically optimize sound based on the type of content being played on the TV.

Smooth Gradation Feature

LG C9 and LG C8 both use Quad Step Noise Reduction process for optimizing image clarity. Two steps are used for de-contouring filter, while the remaining two steps are used for removing compression artifacts. The difference is about how the two filters are applied. On the LG C8, the two filters are applied simultaneously and this can be controlled by MPEG Noise Reduction feature.  Meanwhile, on LG C9, two filters are applied separately. The LG C9 have a new feature called “Smooth Gradation” that can be controlled independently from the MPEG Noise Reduction and can be used to makes smoother color gradient without causing the image lose some fine details. This is due to the Alpha 9 Gen 2 is able to remove in-source posterization artifacts without obfuscating fine details in high quality sources. On the other hand, the LG C8 doesn’t have “Smooth Gradation” feature.

Control White Sub-Pixel Boosting

As we have known, the LG OLED Panel uses WRGB pixel structure where the white sub-pixel is used for boosting their peak brightness. And both LG C9 and C8 actually both have a menu that allows you to control white sub-pixel boosting. Nevertheless, the difference, for LG, to do it, you must enter the Service Menu while the LG C9 allows you to do it through the user menu called “Peak Brightness” feature.

Variable Refresh Rate

Both LG OLED C9 and OLED C8 actually have the same native refresh rate panel, which is 120 Hz. But the difference, the LG C9 also already supports VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) technology while the LG C8 has not support. This feature can improve its game experience with screen tearing-free. But a bit unfortunate, the VRR technology that supported by LG C9 is HDMI Forum VRR where it is not compatible with GSync or FreeSync. Additionally, there are not many devices that also already support HDMI Forum and currently, only Xb0X One that support this VRR Technology. .

HDMI Ability

One of the major improvements brought by the LG C9 over the predecessor C8 is its HDMI ability. The HDMI ports of LG C8 and C9 might both already support HDMI 2.0, CEC, HDCP 2.0, and ARC, but now, the HDMI port of LG C9 also already supports HDMI 2.1. This allows the LG OLED C9 can play HFR (High Frame Rate) content through its HDMI ports. The LG C8 actually also already supports HFR because it has HEVC decoder conforming to the Main10 profile at level 5.2. But the limited bandwidth of HDMI 2.0 doesn’t allow its HDMI port to accept HFR signal. This means, the LG C8 can play HFR content via USB and Streaming only.

Additionally, the other difference, the LG C9 already supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel) while the LG C8 has not. This will have an impact on their ability in supporting Dolby Atmos pass-through. The LG C9 and C8 actually already support Dolby Vision pass-through via their HDMI ARC. But, the difference, due it doesn’t support eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), LG C8 only supports Atmos that encoded in Dolby Digital Plus. On the other hand, the LG C9 also supports Dolby Atmos via Dolby TrueHD carrier signal.

Furthermore, the HDMI ports of the OLED C9 also already support ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) while the HDMI ports of LG C8 have not support. With this feature, the LG C9 is able to automatically change to Game Mode once you launch a game on a compatible game console. This ensures you to get the Instant Game Response without entering the menu settings.

Smart TV Platform

WebOS 4.0 vs WebOS 4.5

Both LG OLED C8 and C9 actually run the same smart TV platform, which is WebOS by LG. But the difference, the LG C8 runs WebOS 4.0 while the LG C9 runs the latest version, which is WebOS 4.5. In term of interface, there is not much change offered by the 4.5 version from the 4.0 version. Their interface is equally smooth, fast and easy to use without any serious bugs. Meanwhile, both of them also have good selections of pre-installed apps. There are most of VoD service like YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Videos, and others, Web Browser, Live TVs, Games, and more. Additionally, they both also have an app store called LG’s apps store that provides tons of apps, games, and contents where you can directly download them from your LG TV. These two versions of WebOS also already support Voice Navigation.  Meanwhile, the 4.5 versions come with a few smart features. One of them is Home Dashboard that has similar to SmartThing on Samsung TV, allows the TV can interact with loT devices. Additionally, the WebOS 4.5 also already support AirPlay 2 and Amazon Alexa Devices. Nevertheless, overall, there is not significant change offered by the 4.5 version from the 4.0 version.

Remote Control

LG Remote 2018 and 2019

Both of them might come with LG’s magic remote as their main controller. But the difference, LG C9 comes with the 2019 model while the LG C8 comes with the 2018 model. At a glance, these remotes are similar. Both of these remote also have the same button layout. In addition to standard buttons like “Number Button”, “Power Button”, “Volume Buttons”, and others, they both also have two dedicated buttons for Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. At the center of the remote, there is a clickable “scroll wheel” for supporting their “point and click feature. This allows the remote can act as a mouse pointer, makes the navigation is extremely easy. Meanwhile, a bit difference between these remote, there is a change in function of some buttons on the 2019 model from the 2018 model. Additionally, the 2019 model is also able to work as universal remote over infra red. This means, not only HDMI CEC supported devices that can be controlled by the 2019 remote, but also other devices which don’t support HDMI CEC.  On the other hand, the 2018 model actually can also act as universal remote, but only limited for devices which support HDMI CEC.

LG C9 and C8 Performance

Picture Quality

In general, all models of OLED TVs including the LG C8 and C9 have almost similar picture quality. This is due to they use the OLED panel made by LG that have the same characteristic. Even in few last years, there is no significant improvement offered by the newer OLED panel from the older panel. This means, even though the OLED TV is released in 2018 like LG OLED C8 or released in 2019 like the LG OLED C9, can be ascertained, their picture quality is not far different. If there is a difference, can be ascertained, their difference is not too significant and this is more caused by the panel variance. Nevertheless, there is nothing wrong if we discuss side by side comparison between the LG C9 and C8.

Contrast and Black Level

Just like other models of OLED TVs, both LG C9 and C8 also have infinite native contrast ratio and nearly-perfect black.  This is due to their OLED panel has self-lighting pixel that can switch on/off/dim individually.  And since each of pixels can emit its own light, this allows the OLED panel doesn’t need backlight. Additionally, this also makes the OLED panel has pixel dimming level that means the light condition of each pixel is not affected by the light condition of other pixels surrounding. So, even though OLED panel doesn’t have local dimming, but its pixel dimming level is equal to full array local dimming on LED TV with the number of dimming zones is equal to the number of pixel. This makes OLED panel has extremely high precision of lighting.

OLED-vs-LED-black-levels

 

When it is showing black, the OLED panel will switch off the pixel in black area. So, there is no light at all emitted from the pixel in black area. This makes black produced by OLED panel is nearly perfect. Additionally, the pixel dimming level also makes the OLED TVs including LG C9 and C8 has excellent black uniformity. This means, the OLED panel can show black at anywhere with the same depth. And combination of nearly-perfect black and excellent black uniformity makes dark scene displayed on their screen looks excellent, even when they both are set in a pitch dark environment. Additionally, with HDR content, this also makes information in shadow details can be revealed excellently. The result, shadow details of HDR images looks excellently on their screen as expected from HDR.

Winner: Draw

SDR Peak Brightness

LG C9 actually has a bit brighter SDR Peak brightness than the Predecessor C8. But their difference doesn’t have a significant on the picture produced and in general, their SDR peak brightness is equally good. Nevertheless, in this case, there is a difference in characteristic between the LG C8 and C9 on their SDR peak brightness. On the LG C8, except a large bright scene, its peak brightness is relatively similar at any window sizes where it can hit around 330 nits. But when showing a large bright scene like 100% window test, its brightness is dimmed significantly down to around 150 nits by its ABL (Automatic Bright Limiter). This is intended to prevent the excessive power consumption.  Meanwhile, on LG C9, its peak brightness is depending on the content. On 2 % window (2% of screen is white while the rest is black), it can hit around 425 nits. It is the brightest SDR peak brightness hit by the C9. But even so, the larger area of the screen gets bright, its peak brightness is decreased.  And just like the predecessor C8, its peak brightness dims significantly due to ABL when they are showing the entire screen is bright.

Overall, SDR peak brightness of LG C8 and C9 is fairly good. It is bright enough to overcome the glare in an average bright room. Nevertheless, even though with real content, they can show them with almost the same brightness level, but when showing small highlight, the LG C9 can show it around 100 nits brighter than the LG C8.

Winner: LG C9

HDR Peak Brightness

With HDR Content, the LG C9 also can get a bit brighter than the LG C8. With real content, the OLED C9 can hit brighter than 700 nits while the C7 only hit around 650 nits. But even so, their peak brightness is also both depending on the content. On 2% and 10% window, the LG C8 can hit around 900 nits while the C9 hit around 800 nits. Nevertheless, except on 2% and 10% window, they can hit almost the same brightness, which is around 500 nits on 25% window, 300 nits on 50% window, and 150 nits on 100% window.  This means, even though overall, the LG C9 can show HDR images a bit brighter, but in showing small highlight, the LG C8 can get brighter. But even so, ignoring their difference, their HDR peak brightness is really good for OLED TVs. They both can show HDR images as bright they should be. Small Highlight also looks excellently the way they should in HDR. But a bit unfortunate, since their peak brightness is still short of the 1000-4000 nits HDR is mastered for, of course, they both cannot show small highlight like what intended by the content creator.  This performance certainly is still under the performance of premium LED TV like Sony X950G or Samsung Q90R where they both can hit around 1500 nits.

Winner: LG C9 can get brighter with real content, the LG C8 can show brighter small highlight

Color Gamut and Color Volume

Wide color gamut

Both LG C8 and LG C9 have excellent wide color gamut. Their color gamut can cover around 98% of DCI P3 color space that means it is great for HDR content that mastered in DCI P3 like HDR10 content. Additionally, even though their color gamut coverage in Rec.2020 is around 74% of color space, but this is still wide enough for HDR images that mastered in Rec.2020 like Dolby Vision Content. But a bit unfortunate, they both only have decent color volume. They both might be able to produce deep darks fairly well due to nearly perfect-black produced by them, but they both cannot produce very bright saturated colors. You need to know, the white sub-pixel of the WRGB structure of their panel allow is able to boost peak brightness produced, allows them can produce bright whites. But even so, colors cannot be shown as bright because on the other hand, the white sub-pixel causes color de-saturation on bright colors. Nevertheless, except very bright saturated colors, they both can show their wide color gamut at entire their brightness range, allow them can show colorful HDR images with vivid colors.

Winner: Draw

Color Gradient

10 bit color gradient

Both LG OLED C9 and OLED C8 also have similar color gradient and overall, their color gradient is equally excellent. Both of them can show color gradient of a 10 bit content smoothly. Although in certain scene, there is still some little banding in some color, but this should not be noticeable in normal content. Meanwhile, when they are playing low quality content with a lot of banding, both of them also have a feature that can be used for reducing the banding.  On the LG C8, you can enabling “MPEG Noise Reduction”, while on OLED C9, you can enabling the Smooth Gradation. But as we have discussed above on “Smooth Gradation Feature” section, these features have different behavior. The MPEG Noise Reduction feature on LG C8 might be able to reduce banding on the screen of LG C8, but on the other hand, this will cause a loss of some fine details on some scene. On the other hand, the “Smooth Gradation” feature on LG C9 is able to reduce the banding without cause a loss of some fine details. Or if the image still loses its fine details, this is not as many as on LG C8.

Winner: Draw

Side Viewing Angle

The side viewing angle also becomes the main strong point of OLED TV including the LG C8 and C9. So, even though you watch TV from the side, the picture displayed on their screen will look remain accurate. If on LED TV, black level usually rise started at around 15 degrees, so when viewed from the side, black will look tend to grey, on their screen, black level can be maintained up to around 70 degrees off center.   So, although you watch TV from extremely wide angle, black still looks really black on their screen. Additionally, they both also can maintain their brightness level up to extremely wide angle. So the picture will still look bright from the side. Although their color still shift started at around 30 degrees and washed out at around 50 degrees, but this is still better than LED TVs. This certainly is a great for you who have wide seating arrangement for watching TV.

Winner: Draw

Motion Handling

The other strong point that offered by OLED TVs is about their pixel response time. As we have known, OLED TVs including the LG C9 and C8 have instantaneous pixel response time. The result, when they are playing fast paced content like sports, fast games, of fast movies, motion looks very clear without visible trail following fast moving object. Additionally, even though the instantaneous pixel response time cause the images appears to stutter, particularly when they play low frame rate content like 24p movies, this issue can be minimized by enabling their BFI or Motion Interpolation mode.

The other excellence that offered by both LG C9 and C8, since their OLED panel doesn’t have backlight, to dim their screen, they don’t use PWM Dimming System. This allows their screen is almost flicker-free. But sometimes, flicker is needed to make motion looks crisper. And for this, they both have an optional BFI (Black Frame Insertion) mode. By enabling this mode, this will make their screen flickers at 60 Hz. This is very helpful to make motion looks crisper, particularly when they are playing 60 fps content like sports or video games. But even so, at the same time, since their screen flickers at 60 Hz, this might bother some people.

Furthermore, both LG C9 and C8 also can do a great job when playing 24p movies. Regardless the source, they both can show them with judder-free. This means, whether the source is native 24p content like DVD or Blu Ray movies, 24p content from native apps like YouTube or Netflix, 24p content via 60p signal like movies from streaming devices, or via 60i signal like movies from satellite TV, you can enjoy them smoothly with judder-free.  And to enjoy movies on their screen with judder-free, you just need to enable “Real Cinema” on their picture setting menu.

Winner: Draw

Input Lags

The use of Alpha 9 Gen 2 processor brings a bit improvement on the input lags of LG C9 over LG C8. With 60 Hz content, regardless the resolution, the input lags of LG C9 is around 24 ms. This is a bit lower than the input lags of LG C8 where its input lags is around 21 ms. Meanwhile, with 120 fps content, the input lags of LG C9 is even better. If the input lags of the OLED C8 are around 21 ms, the input lags of the OLED C9 is around 7 ms. This means, when used for playing games, the LG C9 is more responsive than the LG C8 and this will be more noticeable when you are playing fast paced games that require fast reflexes. Additionally, just we have mentioned above, the LG C9 also supports VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) technology and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) that can improve its game experience. On the other hand, even though the input lags of OLED C8 is not as low as the OLED C9 and it doesn’t support VRR technology and ALLM, overall, the LG C8 is also a great TV for games.

Winner: LG C9

Conclusion

For Watching Movies

Both LG C9 and C8 are great TVs for watching movies in a dark room. Their nearly perfect black level and excellent black uniformity results in excellent dark scene, even when they are set in a dark environment, the ideal condition for watching movies. Additionally, they both also have excellent motion handling, makes fast movies appear smoothly on their screen. Their great performance in handling judder also allows you to watch movies on their screen with judder free. Just we have mentioned, the image might appear to stutter on their screen due to their instantaneous pixel response time. But this should not be a big problem since the image stuttering can be minimized by enabling Motion Interpolation or BFI mode.

Winner: Draw

For Watching Sports

Performance of LG OLED C9 and C8 when used for watching sports is also equally great. In addition they both have excellent picture quality, they both also have good SDR peak brightness to overcome the glare in average bright room. Additionally, the anti-reflective coating on their screen makes both have excellent reflection handling. And combined to their good peak brightness makes their performance in bright room is really good. Not only that, the good gray uniformity also allows you to watch sport without dirty screen effect. And their excellent motion handling ensures you to watch fast movies with smooth motion.  For you who often watch a big game with a group of your family or friends, their good side viewing angle ensure all of you get the best viewing.

Winner: Draw

For Playing Games

For you who want to buy TV for games, they both are also equally good choices. In addition they both have nearly-perfect black, good peak brightness, good side viewing angle, and excellent motion handling, they both also have low input lags that ensure you can play a game responsively. But jus we have discussed a lot above, in addition it has lower input lags, the LG C9 also already supports VRR technology and ALLM. This certainly makes it is better than the predecessor when used for playing games.  But keep in mind, the both have a risk to permanent burn-in when showing static image like the scoreboard on a game, TV broadcast’s logo, and others for a long time. So, to prevent their pixels burn-in, play the same game for over longtime should be avoided. Additionally, enabling the “Pixel Refresh” and “Screen Shift, and setting “Logo Luminance adjustment” to” low” also can minimize this risk.

Winner: OLED C9

HDR Experience

Both LG C8 and C9 are also great TVs for watching HDR Content. Their perfect black level, wide color gamut, excellent color gradient, and good HDR peak brightness allows you to enjoy HDR content they way they should be. Shadow details looks excellently. On the contrary, small highlight also looks outstandingly on their screen. Additionally, their wide color gamut makes them can produce colorful HDR images. But just we have discussed, their peak brightness is still short of the 1000-4000 nits where the HDR images are mastered. This means, even though they both show small highlight very bright, but they both are not able to show highlight as bright the content creator intend. But notwithstanding, for OLED TVs, their HDR peak brightness is really excellent. You can go to LED TV like Samsung Q80R or Sony Z9G, or others that can get much brighter. But of course, their black level is not as deep as what offered by both LG C8 and C9.

Winner: Draw

Summary

So, which is a better choice between them? As we have discussed a lot above, there are not many changes in picture quality offered by the LG C9 as a newer model than LG C8. The improvement brought by the OLED C9 is more on features such as VRR Technology, ALLM, AI-Related Features like AI Brightness, AI Sound, and AI Picture, HDMI 2.1, and others. Meanwhile, with some new features offered, with the same screen, the LG C9 is priced hundreds of dollar more expensive than the LG C8. Nevertheless, this is also caused that the price of LG C8 has dropped a lot. Now, the decision comes back to you according to your own preferences. If you don’t mind to spend hundred dollars more, the LG C9 certainly is better. In addition to it is a newer model, it also has some additional features and lower input lags. On the other hand, if you just focus on picture quality, LG C8 certainly is better. In addition its picture quality is not far different to LG C9, you can save hundreds dollar of your money.
