LG Display personnel said, “OLED TV absolutely expresses black better than QD-LCD TV if OLED TV and QD-LCD TV set the mode that expresses white color 6500K which is the standard of UHD Alliance. Basically, the brightness of QD LCD TV is higher than OLED TV, but because the basis is LCD, it feels more distortion because of more white tone compared to the color of OLED TV. Also, OLED TV can almost express without distortion even in viewing angle, but the color is distorted in QD-LCD”, emphasizing better quality of OLED TV than QD-LCD TV.
