LG OLED E9 vs OLED E8

The LG OLED E9 is one of the High End model of LG’s 2019 4K HDR OLED TV. On the other hand, the LG OLED E8 is also one of the High-END LG’s 2018 OLED TV and also the predecessor of OLED E9. Both of them bring the design concept called “Picture on the Glass”. Unlike most TVs, the OLED panel of the OLED E9 and E8 are mounted on the glass panel that will give them a luxurious impression. Nevertheless, even though they both come with “Picture on Glass” design, but of course, the OLED C9 comes with some changes. In the market, the LG E8 comes in 2 screen sizes option including 55 inches (OLED55E8) and 65 inches (OLED65E8), while the LG E9 also comes in 2 screen sizes (OLED55E9) and 65 inches (OLED65E9). Meanwhile, with the same screen (OLED55E8PUA vs OLED55E9PUA, OLED65E8PUA vs OLED65E9PUA0, the OLED E9 is sold hundreds dollar more expensive than the OLED E8. Nevertheless, this is caused more the price OLED E8 has dropped a lot, while the OLED E9 still has a full price or if its price has come down, the decrease is not too much. So, what new features are offered by the OLED E9 as a newer model over the OLED E8?

Technology and Features of LG OLED E9 and E8

The Similarities

Panel Technology

There are not improvements offered by the OLED panel that used by LG OLED E9 and OLED E8. With other words, the LG OLED E8and OLED E9 use the OLED panel that have the same technical platform that use WRGB pixel structure.  As we know, the OLED panel has individual self lighting pixel that can switch on/off/dim individually without affected by the condition of other pixel surrounding. This means, the lighting source of OLED panel is from the light of its own pixels, not from backlight like on LCD/LED TV. So, when they are showing totally black, there is no pixel that switches on, so the screen doesn’t emit any light at all. The result, black resulted is nearly perfect. Meanwhile, when they are showing white, all of their pixel will switch on. But even so, since it doesn’t have backlight, the peak brightness that hit is not so bright. For this case, the white sub-pixel is needed to boost its peak brightness.

The Difference

Even though they both come with the panel that has similar technical platform, but the LG E9 comes with the improvements in almost all aspects. Below are the major difference between the LG E8 and E9.

Design

LG OLED E9 vs OLED E8 From The Side

As we have mentioned above, LG OLED E8 and E9 both use the glass panel onto which the screen is mounted. However, the LG OLED E9 comes with a bit change in design, particularly on the stand. On the LG E8, the bottom side of the glass directly sits on the table. Meanwhile, the stand is mounted on the glass, not on the screen and there is a gap between the screen and stands. The glass support will give an illusion that the TV is floating. On the other hand, on the LG E9, the bottom side of the glass also directly sits on the table. The difference is the design of their stand and onto which the stand is mounted. If the stand of LG E8 is mounted on the glass, the stand of LG E9 is mounted on the back from a plastic extension. Since the screen is supported by the glass and there is a gap between the table and the screen, this also gives an illusion that the TV is floating. From the back, their screen both looks very clean. But even so, there is a difference in design at the lower half on to which the electronic compartment is housed and cable management is located. The most striking, the speaker hole of OLED E8 is facing up while OLED 9 facing is backwards.

Image Processor

The image processor becomes one of the main differences between the LG OLED E9 and OLED E8. If the LG OLED E8 is powered by Alpha 9 Intelligent processor, the OLED E9 is powered by the successor or the second generation of Alpha 9, which is Alpha 9 Gen 2. But Unfortunately, LG doesn’t disclose the difference characteristics between these processors. Most likely, the new Alpha 9 Gen comes with larger sizes of memory that certainly makes its performance is more powerful than the predecessor.

Nevertheless, the Alpha 9 Gen 2 makes the LG OLED E9 has more capability than the OLED E8 predecessor. If on OLED E8, the AI (Artificial Intelligence) is only applied on Smart TV System, on the OLED E9, the AI is also applied on the automatic adjustment features like AI Picture, AI Brightness, AI Sound, and others for optimizing the picture and Sound.  In addition to automatic adjustment, the LG E9 also has more manual adjustment like Peak Brightness, Smooth Gradation, and others.

Additionally, for improving the clarity of images, the Alpha 9 Gen 2 still use a Quad Step Noise Reduction technique that also used by the predecessor. You need to know, this technique relies on a quad-step process involving the application of de-contouring filter in two passes and compression artifacts removal also in two passes. The difference, if on the Alpha 9 chip, the two filters are applied simultaneously and can be controlled from MPEG Noise Reduction feature, on the Alpha 9 Gen 2, these two filters are applied separately. This allows the LG E9 is able to remove in-source posterization artifacts without obfuscating fine details in high quality sources. This is due to the LG OLED E9 allows you to separately control smooth gradation from the Smooth Gradation menu option, instead from the MPEG Noise Reduction menu option like on the OLED E8, even though the OLED E9 also has this menu option. On the other hand, the LG E8 doesn’t have Smooth Gradation menu feature.

Control Over Peak Brightness

LG OLED E9 and OLED E8 both allow you to adjust the white sub-pixel boosting that adjust the ABL (Automatic Brightness Limiter) setting.  The default value is “On” for HDR and “Off” for SDR. Until here, there is no difference between the LG OLED E8 and E9. But even so, the difference is how this menu is set going through.  If on LG OLED C8, this menu only can be only accessed going through the Service Menu, on OLED E9, you can adjust the white sub-pixel boosting via the user menu called “Peak Brightness”.

Motion Technology

Since LG OLED E8 and E9 use the OLED panel with the same technical platform, they both instantaneous pixel response time. Additionally, they both also have native 120 Hz native refresh panel. Meanwhile, for maximizing its performance in handling motion, they both also have an optional 60 Hz BFI (Black Frame Insertion) mode that can be controlled from TruMotion and Motion Pro Menu Setting. Furthermore, since they both have 120 Hz native refresh rate panel, they both are also able to interpolate the lower frame rate content up to 120 Hz. Meanwhile, the difference is about VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) technology support that can improve their game experience. If the LG E8 doesn’t support any VRR features, the LG E9 has supports a new HDMI Forum VRR technology. But unfortunately, this format is not compatible with other format like GYSNC or Free Sync. Additionally, there is no device that already supports HDMI VRR and currently, there is only the Xbox One that already supports this new VRR format.

Connectivity

Both LG OLED E8 and E9 might be equipped with the same number of the connectivity. They both have 4 HDMI ports, 3 USB ports, 1 Composite In (AV IN), 1 RF In (Tuner IN), 1 Digital Audio Out (Optical), 1 Analog Audio Out (Mini Jack 3.5 mm),  and 1 Ethernet Port. Meanwhile, for wireless connectivity, they both also have built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.  Additionally, their HDMI ports also already support CEC (all Ports), HDCP 2.2 (all ports), HDMI 2.0 Full Bandwidth (all ports), and ARC (Audio Return Channel) (equally on HDMI 2).

Meanwhile, the difference between them is the HDMI 2.1 support.  For this case, the HDMI ports of LG E9 already support HDMI 2.1 while the LG E8 doesn’t support.  This allows the OLED E9 can accept 4K HFR (High Frame Rate) content (e.g. 4K @120). On other hand, since the LG E8 only supports HDMI 2.0, it cannot accept HFR signal via HDMI port due to the limited bandwidth of HDMI 2.0, albeit it actually can play HFR content via USB or Streaming. Additionally, both LG OLED E9 and OLED E8 might already support Dolby Atmos pass through via HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel).  However, the wide bandwidth of HDMI 2.1 makes the LG E9 supports eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel), allow it is able to pass-through Dolby Digital Plus encoded Atmos streams. Additionally, the HDMI ports of LG OLED E9 also Support ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode), allow it to automatically switch to game mode once the signal from game console is detected. On the other hand, the LG OLED E8 doesn’t support this feature.

Smart TV Platform

WebOS 4.0 vs WebOS 4.5

Both LG OLED E8 and OLED E9 might support the same smart TV platform, which is WebOS.  But they come with different version. The LG E9 comes with 4.5 version while the LG E8 comes with 4.0 version. In general, there is not much change brought by the 4.5 version over the 4.0 version.  There are only a few new smart features offered by the 4.5 version including. One of the new features offered by the 4.5 version is a Home Dashboard feature. This feature allows the TV can interact with loT devices. This is like the SmartThing feature found on the Tizen or Samsung Smart TV platform. But even so, separated from their difference, the WebOS platform has attractive and intuitive interface.  It is also fast and smooth without any serious issues found.  That is interesting, it also provides numerous attractive and useful pre-installed apps.  Additionally, it also has an apps store called “LG Apps Store”, allow you to download tons of apps, contents, and games provided. And for voice navigation, it works with LG ThinQ AI.

Remote Control

LG OLED E9 vs OLED E8 Remote

They both come with LG’s magic Remote. But even so, the LG OLED E8 comes with the 2018 model while the OLED E9 comes with the 2019 model. Physically, their remote looks similar. Additionally, their button layout is also similar. But the 2019 model comes with a function change on certain buttons. Additionally, the 2019 model comes with a few added features.  One of new features offered by the 2019 model, it has a feature like OneRemote on Samsung Remote. This allows you to control other devices over Infra Red. This means, not just HDMI CEC supported devices that can be controlled by this remote, but also the devices that don’t support HDMI-CE. On the other hand, the 2018 model doesn’t have this feature. Nevertheless, about “point and click” function, voice control, and other features, there is no change brought by the 2019 model.

LG OLED E9 vs OLED C8 Performance

Black Level and Contrast

OLED Black Level

 As we have discussed a lot on previous posts, all OLED TVs have infinite contrast ratio and nearly perfect black. So do the LG E9 and E8, they both also have nearly perfect black and infinite native contrast ratio. This is due the OLED panel is able to switch on/off/dim individual pixels. This means, when they are showing totally black, all pixels are switched off completely, so the screen doesn’t emit any light at all. This certainly makes black produced is nearly perfect. Additionally, this also makes them have excellent black uniformity.  Combination of perfect black and excellent black uniformity makes their dark room performance is really excellent. Additionally, with HDR content, their black level is also  perfect to reveal a lot of information in a dark scene, makes shadow details of HDR images appears excellent on their screen.

Winner: Draw

Local Dimming Performance

OLED TV Pixel Dimming

Both LG OLED E8 and OLED E9 might not have local dimming feature. But the individual self-lighting pixel of their OLED panel makes them have pixel dimming level.  This is equal to the local dimming with the number of dimming zones is equal to the number of the pixels. This means, if they have 4K resolution, their pixel dimming level is equal to the local dimming with around 8 millions dimming zones.  As the comparison, the Sony Z9G or Samsung Q90R as the premium LCD TVs only has hundreds dimming zones. This certainly makes their lighting is very precise. The result, when they are showing a small highlight in a dark scene, there is almost no visible “blooming” or unwanted adjacent light around the bright object, so the small highlight looks outstanding.

Winner: Draw

SDR Peak Brightness

With SDR content, both LG OLED E8 and OLED E9 have good peak brightness. Nevertheless, they have different characteristic in hits their peak brightness. The peak brightness of the OLED E9 varies depending on the content. This is due it has ABL system prevent it from being very bright when it is showing larger bright scene.  The LG E9 can hit its brightest peak brightness on 2% window (2% of screen is white while the rest is black) or 10 % window where it is able to hit around 400 nits. Meanwhile, the larger window or bright scene, their peak brightness is decreased. Even on 100% window or entire screen is white, its peak brightness is dimmed significantly by its ABL system down to around 250 nits.

Meanwhile, the peak brightness of LG OLED E8 is relatively constant on any window size, except when it is showing almost the entire screen is bright. Except on 100% window, it can hit brighter than 300 nits, regardless the window size. This is actually is bright enough to overcome the glare in average bright rooms. But even so, just like the OLED E9, its peak brightness is dimmed significantly down to around 150 nits by its ABL system to prevent the large area get very bright.

This means, even though its peak brightness is depending on the content, the LG OLED E9 can get brighter than the OLED E8. This certainly makes the picture displayed on its screen van get brighter and will looks more consistent on brighter room than the LG OLED E8. But even so, despite their difference, their peak brightness is fairly good for average bright room, but not bright enough for very bright room with a lot of light or sunny window.

Winner: LG E9

HDR Peak Brightness

With HDR Content, both LG OLED E9 and OLED E8 can get brighter peak brightness. And just like with SDR content, the LG E9 can get a bit brighter than LG E8. Special for the LG OLED E8, if with SDR content, except 100% window, its peak brightness is relatively consistent on any window sizes, with HDR content, its peak brightness is depending on the content. In general, with real content, the LG E8 can get around 700 nits. It even can show small highlight around 850 nits, bright enough to show highlight looks standout the way they should in HDR. But just like with SDR content, when it is showing the entire screen is white, its peak brightness is dimmed by ABL system down to around 150 nits. Meanwhile, with real content, the LG E9 can get brighter than 700 nits, brighter than what reached by the LG E8. Nevertheless, it cannot show small highlight as bright as the predecessor where on 2% window, it hit around 800 nits. Just like the E8, its peak brightness is dimmed down to 130 nits when it showing the entire screen is bright.

The LG OLED E8 might be able to show small highlight brighter, but with real content, the LG OLED E9 can get brighter.  But even so, regardless their difference, they both have very good HDR peak brightness. HDR images can be shown as bright as they should be. Peak brightness reached by them is even including the brightest among OLED TVs. But even so, since their peak brightness is still less than 1000 nits, of course they both cannot show HDR image at 1000-4000 nits intended by the content creator.

Winner: LG E9

Color Reproduction

Both LG OLED E8 and OLED E9 has outstanding wide color gamut. Almost all of DCI P3 color space can be covered by their color gamut. This means, almost all colors of HDR images mastered in DCI P3 like HDR10 content can be shown properly. On the other hand, although their color gamut coverage in Rec.2020 is limited where they both can only cover around 75% of Rec.2020 color space, but it is still acceptable for delivering HDR content that mastered in Rec.2020 with vivid colors. But a bit unfortunate, they both only have a decent color volume. Both of them might be able to produce dark, deep colors fairly well, but they both lose volume at bright color. This is caused the OLED panel uses WRGB sub-pixel. The use of white sub-pixel might be able to boost their peak brightness, but at the same time, this will de-saturate the pure colors at high brightness level, makes bright colors lose their saturated.

10 bit color gradient

The LG OLED E9 has a bit better color gradient than the OLED E8.  But their difference is not too significant and overall, their color gradient is equally excellent. Some little color banding might be still visible in most colors, but in real content, this should not be visible. But even so, if you still feel bothered with the banding that might be visible, both of them have a feature to remove the banding. For the LG E8, you can enable the “MPEG Noise Reduction.  This will make color gradient of picture displayed on its screen looks smoother, but on the other hand, this will results in a loss of fine detail. Meanwhile, just we have discussed on “Image Processor” section above, the OLED E9 has a “Smooth Gradation” feature. To remove the banding that might bothersome, you can set this feature to “Low”. That is excellent, this will not result in a loss of fine detail.

Winner: Draw

Side Viewing Angle

 

Just like other OLED TVs, both LG OLED E8 and OLED E8 also has excellent side viewing angle, even is better than LED TVs with IPS panel. Color of images displayed on their screen might still shift at around 30 degrees off center and front, but this is still better than LED TVs. And that is great, they both can maintain black level and their brightness up to 70 degrees off center and front. As the comparison, on the screen LED TV, black level usually will start to rise at around 15 degrees and brightness will start to decrease started at around 30 degrees. The result even though you watch TV from the side, the picture displayed on their screen will look remains accurate. This is certainly is great for you who often watch TV with a group of your family who seat together on the wide seating.

Winner: Draw

Motion Handling

The other major advantage of OLED TVs than LED TV is their instantaneous pixel response time. Just like other OLED TVs, the LG E8 and E9 also have instantaneous pixel response time. The result, when they are playing fast moving images lies sports, fast games, or fast movies, the picture produced looks smooth with almost no trail visible following fast moving object. The blur that might be visible is more due to persistence. But on the other hand, the instantaneous pixel response time will make low frame rate content like 24p movies appears stutter. But even so, if you still feel bothered with stutter, you can enable the motion interpolation or BFI (Black Frame Insertion mode) to reduce the stutter.

OLED vs LED TV Motion Blur

Furthermore, since they both don’t have backlight, they don’t use PWM (Pulse Width Modulation system. The will makes their screen is almost flicker-free, that means it is great. But even so, on the other hand, this will cause some persistence blur. But even so, if you feel bothered with persistence blur that caused, you can enable its BFI mode. You need to know, both the LG OLED E9 and OLED E8 has an optional 60 Hz Black Frame Insertion mode. By enabling this mode, this will make their screen flickers at 60 Hz.  This will make motion looks crisper, particularly when they are playing 60 fps content. But even so, since their backlight flickers at 60 Hz, on the same time, this will make the backlight’s flicker is noticeable for most people. This means, you have two options. If you feel more bothered with persistence blur, you can enable their BFI mode. On the contrary, if you feel more bothered with backlight’s flicker, you can disable their BFI mode. To enable this mode, you must set the TruMotion menu to “User

Meanwhile, they both can also do a great job when playing 24p movies. Regardless the source, whether it is native 24p content like DVD or Blu Ray’s movies, via 60i signal like movies from satellite TV, via 60p signal like movies from streaming devices, or movies from native apps like YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Videos and others, all of them can be shown smoothly with judder-free. To remove the judder, you just need to enable the “Real Cinema”.

Winner: Draw

Input

LG OLED E9 supports more input sources than OLED E8. At 60 fps, the LG E9 supports almost all resolution including 1080p, 1440p, 4k, 4K with HDR, 4K @ 4:4:4, and others. On the other hand, the LG E8 doesn’t support 1440p. Meanwhile, with 120 fps content, the LG E9 also supports most resolution including 1080p, 1440p, 1440p, 4K, 4K with HDR, 4K @ 4:44:, while the LG E8 only supports 1080p resolution.

Discussing about their input lags, the LG E9 has lower input lags then the predecessor LG E8. With 60 fps content, regardless the resolution, the input lags of OLED E9 are around 13 ms while the input lags of OLED E8 is around 21 ms. Furthermore, with 120 fps content, regardless the resolution, the input lags of LG E9 is around 7 ms while LG E8 is around 14 ms. Can be ascertained, with lower input lags in Game mode, the LG OLED E9 is more responsive than the predecessor OLED E8 for games. But even so, regardless the superiority of LG E9, the input lags of LG OLED E8 is actually also great for any games.

Winner: LG E9

Conclusion

For Watching Movies

Both LG OLED E8 and OLED E9 are great TVs for watching movies in a dark room. They both have nearly-perfect black and excellent black uniformity, excellent for dark room. Additionally, both of them cal can display judder-free movies, regardless the sources. Their instantaneous pixel response time also makes fast movies can be shown smoothly and clearly with almost no motion blur on their screen. But, just we have discussed above, since they both have instantaneous pixel response times, this might movies appears to stutter on their screen. But you don’t need to worry, the stutter can be removed by enabling BFI or Motion Interpolation features. Compare between, since LG OLED E9 has a bit better performance in some aspect like color gradient, peak brightness, and others, and also supports some new features like HDMI 2.1, eARC, control over peak brightness, and others, overall, it is better than LG E8 when used for watching movies

Winner: LG E9

For Watching Sports

In addition they both are remarkable TV for watching movies, both LG OLED E9 and E8 are also great TV for watching sports. They both have good motion handling, makes fast movies looks crisp with almost no motion blur visible. Additionally, their excellent wide viewing angle allows all of you and your friend or family gets the best viewing when watching a big game together. And since they both have good peak brightness and can handle reflection well, allow you to place them in a fairly bright room. Furthermore, both of them also has excellent gray uniformity with almost no dirty screen effect, makes the field of game looks clean without any dark spot. Meanwhile, compare between them, since the LG E9 has brighter peak brightness, in brighter room, its peak brightness can overcome the glare better than the LG E8.

Winner: LG E9

For Playing Games

Both LG OLED E9 and OLED E8 are also great TVs for playing games. In addition they both have excellent picture quality and motion handling, they both also have excellent low input lags in game mode.  This allows you to play any game responsively with excellent picture quality and crisp motion. Regardless you play a game during a day or a night, the picture displayed on their screen looks relatively consistent due to they both have good performance in a dark room and bright room. Its wide viewing angle also ensures all of you to get the best viewing when you are playing a game together with your friend or family. Bu a bit unfortunate, they both have permanent burn-in risk, particularly when showing static images for a long time. So, play the same game over long time should be avoided to prevent from permanent burn-in. Meanwhile, compare between them, since LG E9 has lower input lags and new features that support its game experience like HDMI Forum VRR technology, ALLM and others, it is a bit better than the predecessor when used for playing games.

Winner: LG E9

HDR Experience

Both of them have nearly perfect black and excellent uniformity, shadow details looks excellently on their screen. Additionally, the excellent color gamut produced also allows them to show HDR images with vivid colors. Even though their peak brightness is less than 1000 nits that mean it can show highlight at 1000-400 nits of the target intended by the content creator, but their peak brightness is also bright enough to show highlight looks outstandingly the way they should in HDR. Overall, they both also offer great HDR Experience with the quality it should be. Compare between the, since OLED O9 has better color gradient and brighter peak brightness, overall, its HDR experience is a bit better than the OLED E8 predecessor.

Winner: OLED E9.

Summary

As we have mentioned above, overall, they both are equally great TV for any usage. Regardless they are used for watching movies, sports TV shows, HDR experience, or smart TV experience, their performance is really excellent. So, which is a better choice between them? As we have discussed a lot above, overall, the LG OLED 9 brings some improvement in most aspects like peak brightness, color gradient, lower input lags. Additionally, it also has some AI based features like AI Brightness, AI Volume, AI picture that can automatically adjust the parameter based on your watching TV habits. Overall, the LG E9 is better than the predecessor LG E8. But just we have mentioned, with the some screen, it is priced hundreds dollar more expensive than the predecessor. But even so, this is more caused the price of LG E8 has dropped a lot due to it is last year model. Now the decision comes back to you according to your budget and preferences. If you have an extra budget, the OLED E9 certainly is a better choice. But even so, if your budget is limited, performance of LG E8 is also excellent and not far different to the OLED E9.
