Review LG QNED85 From A to Z in 2023

The LG QNED85 is a mid-range 4k TV from LG’s 2022 QNED line. It uses LG’s NanoCell technology and a quantum dot color filter to show a wider range of colors. It mostly competes with other mid-range models like the Sony X90K, Samsung QN85B QLED, and Hisense U8H. It comes in a few sizes, from 55 to 86 inches, so you can choose the size that works best for your room. It’s the lowest-end model in LG’s 2022 lineup with a Mini LED full array backlight, which is meant to improve dark scene performance while reducing blooming compared to standard LED backlights with fewer zones. It is powered by LG’s 7 Gen 5 AI processor and can play some advanced formats like Dolby Vision HDR.

1.Mixed Usage

The LG QNED85 is a great TV that can be used for most things. It has a low input lag and a fast response time, which make it great for gaming. It looks good in most situations, so it’s a good choice for watching movies at night or shows during the day. It’s also good for watching sports because the center of the screen doesn’t get too dirty, and the wide viewing angle makes it a great choice for watching the big game with a big group of friends. It’s also a great PC monitor, and it shows chroma 4:4:4 correctly so that text is easy to read.


The LG QNED85 has a simple design that doesn’t make it look very expensive or cheap. The bezels are thin, but there is some empty space between them and the first pixels.
The TV’s back is very simple and mostly made of a single large metal panel. There are clips on the back that help guide the cables to the tracks in the feet. Most of the inputs are on the side of the TV and close to the edge, making them easy to use even if you mount the TV on the wall.

The LG 65QNED85 is well put together. The materials used feel high-quality. The back panel, the edges, and the feet are all made of metal and feel well-made. It’s strong, but the feet move around a little. The back panel bends a little, but it’s not too bad.


The contrast on the LG QNED85 is very good. The panel’s native contrast is low, so if you turn off local dimming, dark parts of the screen will look washed out. But when local dimming is turned on, real content looks great.
There’s a little bit of blooming around bright spots in dark scenes, but overall it’s fine. It stands out a bit more around the subtitles.
Overall, the way zones change is fine, but it can be distracting when things move quickly. Bright spots that move across the screen are too fast for the algorithms that control the dimming zones to keep up with. The zones take a long time to turn on and off, so moving objects look a little darker than they should and leave a halo behind them.
SDR has great peak brightness. The brightness changes a bit from scene to scene, but it’s bright enough to get rid of glare in rooms with average light. Medium-sized highlights in dark scenes are almost twice as bright as large highlights in bright scenes, so they stand out well. However, the TV can’t keep these highlights bright for very long, and the brightness decreases over time.

The PQ EOTF tracking on the TV is very good. Shadow details and scenes that are almost black are shown well. In a strange way, the way the TV tone maps content at different brightness levels is very different. Midtones are a little too bright in content mastered at 600 nits, while midtones are a little too dark in content mastered at 1,000 or 4,000 nits. Scenes with a lot of light are also handled differently. Content that was mastered at 4,000 nits has a much smoother roll-off, which helps keep details in bright areas. All of this means, in short, that the level of fine details you’ll see in bright scenes will depend on what’s happening in them.

The LG QNED85 is almost free of flicker. There’s no flickering at full brightness, but if you turn down the brightness, it flickers at a very high rate that most people don’t notice.The LG QNED85 has a good response time, so most moving images look clear and sharp. There is noticeable overshoot, which causes inverse ghosting like the orange tint to the left of the moving logo above, but it’s not too distracting.


The LG QNED85 has great low input lag in both “Game” mode and “PC” mode, which makes it great for gaming and desktop use. The input lag is almost the same at different resolutions, and it is incredibly low when gaming at 120Hz. Switching to the “PC” input icon for support of chroma 4:4:4 doesn’t make input lag worse, which is great.The LG QNED85 works with all of the PS5’s features, but only through HDMI ports 3 and 4. Ports 1 and 2 can’t play games at 4k and 120Hz.
