C8 vs. E8

Not sure which OLED TV is right for you? We'll take a closer look at two stunning LG OLED TVs, so you can decide which is the best fit.

So, you’ve finally been wooed by the Best. TV. Ever*., but you’re not sure which OLED TV is right for you. While choosing between the many options can seem overwhelming, the good news is: there’s no bad choice. It really just comes down to your personal preference. Here, we’ll take a closer look at two stunning LG OLED TVs: the LG C8 vs. LG E8, so you can decide which one is the best fit for you.

First, let’s look at what’s the same:
The same OLED 4K technology. Both of these televisions are state-of-the-art OLED TVs, which means you’ll experience the beauty of an ultra-thin, sleek form and excellent color reproduction, thanks to OLED technology that uses individual pixels that switch on and off for perfect black, Infinite Contrast and vibrant color, even from wide viewing angles. Both also offer 4K resolution for 8.3M pixels—four-times that of Full HD—for increased clarity and fine picture detail.

The same α (Alpha) 9 intelligent processor. Thanks to this smart chip created exclusively for LG OLED TVs, both TVs provide you with true-to-life images and incredibly rich colors, sharpness and depth for more realism. The α9 uses a unique four-step process of noise reduction, making colors look more natural and closer than ever to the original content. The smart α9 chip also supports HFR (High Frame Rate), which means it can play content at up to 120 frames per second, helping achieve smooth, fluid pictures even during fast motion (like sports, action movies and games).

The same HDR formats. Both TVs offer support for four HDR formats—Advanced HDR by Technicolor®, in addition to the superior viewing experience of Dolby VisionTM*, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma)—so you have access to the most cinematic content from the comfort of home.

The same AI ThinQ® capabilities. These LG OLED TVs both have AI (Artificial Intelligence) ThinQ®, so you quickly access a variety of features on the TVs using just your voice. With help from the built in Google Assistant, you can pull up family photos, control light settings, check the weather and more. And with ThinQ® AI, you can search, open, and navigate selected applications and premium services. You can also control your TV with the LG Magic Remote, the new LG ThinQ® Speaker with the Google Assistant built in, Google Home or Amazon Alexa devices (purchased separately)*.

The same Dolby Atmos audio. Both TVs support Dolby Atmos* content, which creates a more detailed 3D sound experience that appears to come from everywhere—for a more immersive experience that transports you, no matter what you’re watching.

So, what’s different when it comes to the LG E8 vs. LG C8? It all comes down to design, sound and size:

Different designs. The LG E8 boasts a stunningly unique Picture-on-Glass design. The OLED panel is actually set on a piece of elegant glass, creating a gorgeous image that appears to float in the air, blending seamlessly like a piece of art just about anywhere. The C8 is also stunningly sleek and beautiful, just without the glass. Both are very close in their design, with the C8 coming in ever-so-slightly slimmer at 1.8 inches, to the E8’s 2 inches. When mounted on a table or other surface, the C8 gives you about 2-inches of clearance at the bottom, while the E8 is closer to a half-an-inch.

Different speakers. The E8 has 4.2 channel speaker system with 60 Watts of output power, and the C8 has a 2.2 channel speaker system, delivering 40 Watts of output power.

Different size options. Both the C8 and E8 offer 55-inch and 65-inch options, but the C8 also has a 77-inch screen available, while the E8 Glass TV does not. So, if you’re looking for an ultra-large screen, the C8 may be the choice for you.


LG OLED TV is available in range of sizes, curved screen or flat, Full HD or state-of-the-art 4K Ultra HD. Let’s find the right one for you.
