The LG C2 OLED TV, seen here in the 65-inch size, is one of the best high-end TV's we've tested. Let's take a closer look

LG made quite a few improvements for 2022 but the remote remains basically the same and has too many buttons.

The TV itself got some exterior upgrades however, starting with a more squared-off edge and even thinner bezel.

That bezel results in a look that's almost all picture.

New for 2022 is a carbon-fiber cabinet that helps reduce the weight substantially. This 65-inch TV weighs in at a feathery 37 pounds.

The pedestal stand is simple and sturdy, and of course you can mount the C2 on the wall.

Here's that remote again. Count the buttons. We'll wait.

Around back all of the inputs are mounted on one side.

HDMI 2.1 support extends to all four main inputs, a rarity even among high-end TVs.

A trio of USBs is on tap for file playback or to power a streaming stick.

And we do recommend using the C2 with some kind of streaming device, because its smart TV system is cluttered with stuff you probably won't use.

App support is solid but not as good as Roku, Google TV or Apple TV.

You can use the remote or just talk to the TV for Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands.

New for 2022 is a multiview feature that offers picture-in-picture, but it's very limited.

Another new feature is called "always ready" and it displays your choice of screen fillings, including art seen here.
