LG Gram Plus View review: A gorgeous premium portable monitor

Light, stylish and stunning to behold, the LG Gram Plus View is an excellent portable monitor

The LG Gram Plus View (styled “+view”) is a dashingly handsome 16in portable monitor. LG clearly hopes you’ll pair this dinky display with one of its Gram 16 laptops: aside from the obvious similarities in design, the Plus View launched as a freebie that came with both versions of LG’s Gram 16 (2022) (£1,549). Given that the only requirement is a spare USB-C port, though, I wouldn’t let that distract you.

It’s remarkably simple to use: modern portable monitors such as this one connect to your laptop via a single USB-C cable that draws power and carries a video signal. You won’t have to perform any setup routines or find space on a crowded extension lead – there isn’t even an on-screen display to fiddle around with.

The result is an elegant, portable monitor that looks good and performs very well indeed. Whether you own an LG Gram laptop or not, the Plus View is a great way to expand your screen real estate without the bulk of a larger desktop monitor.

LG Gram Plus View review: What do you get for the money?

The Plus View costs £300. That nets you a 16in IPS display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600, an aspect ratio of 16:10, a refresh rate of 60Hz and a quoted response time of 30ms G2G. There’s no adaptive sync.
