When choosing between the two TVs, you’ll want to consider the overall design, smart features, picture quality, and your budget.
Samsung The Frame TV
LG Gallery TV
Currently in its 7th generation, making it a mature product offering. It was initially released in 2017 as the first ever to create a new category of TV - the Art TV, making it a more innovative TV than any other.
Currently in its 3rd generation and first released in 2021.
The most unique quality that sets Samsung The Frame TV above others is Art Mode. When the TV is not being used, you can display your favorite artwork on the screen, allowing it to seamlessly fit into your home’s decor.
There’s no dedicated Art Mode, so when the TV is not in use the screen is black (similar to other standard TVs). Additionally, the TV must rotate pictures to keep the screen from being damaged due to “burn-in” where an image could become burned into the screen.
The Art Store with Samsung The Frame TV gives you more than 2,000 pieces of art images to choose from to display and comes preloaded with Free Art. This includes photographs, digital art, and much more, making it easy to choose art that best displays your style and preference.
No Art Store available.
It’s only 1 inch thick (including the wall mount), making for a slim design that is intended to appear as a framed piece of artwork when not being used. The One Connect Cord, which is used for all connections to the TV, is a discrete clear cord that can be run in the wall or discretely down the face of the wall. The TV also offers customizable frames to match the decor in your home.
The design is minimalist and slim, and the TV hangs flush with the wall. However, there are no options for hiding the side view of the TV, which is where all the ports are located and therefore, where all the cords must be placed (making it difficult for them to be hidden).
Uses QLED (Quantum Dot LED) display technology with a 4K resolution, which is known for providing extremely high-quality colors and brightness.
Uses OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display technology, which is known for vibrant colors and deep blacks. However, a downside of this technology is that the image needs to be changed every 15 seconds to prevent burn-in. Additionally, it doesn’t allow for a picture to be shown when the power is off, and therefore, does not have the capability of displaying artwork like Samsung The Frame TV.
Has an anti-glare Matte Display, which reduces the glare on the TV screen. It also further enhances the art quality on the screen, making the art on display look like a piece of art on your wall.
The LG Gallery TV provides a glossy, bright screen and does not replicate true art on a wall or blend in with the room's decor.
Delivers exceptional picture quality with a variety of bezel options to match your home décor. Additionally, Deco TV Frames offers more than 30 Frame Styles for Samsung The Frame TVs to truly turn your TV into a work of art.
Also delivers high-quality picture quality. However, there are no frame options available for LG Gallery TVs.
