Sorry but, this is nonsense. The only benefit of pre-2021 Sony model TVs over any other brand OLED is motion handling. And that's it. The Sony's have very limited peak brightness and it is absolutely unsubstnatiated to say Sony's have 'better colours'. Simply not true.
The sound on the CX is thin and the Sony has much better sound. The hobbled TV software on new LG OLEDs no longer support multi satellite and Freeview on the same set (older LG OLEDs did support that). The LG set doesn't have More 4 on catch up, it's only recently got My 5. The Sony has a far superior TV picture processing.
You’re welcome! It’s a no brainier if you’re a gamer. Check the Crampton and Moore CX deal listed on HUKD. Richer sounds and John Lewis will both price match that. I’m going JL because for +£140 they cover against screen burn issues. Some might say that’s unnecessarily over cautious - but I’d rather have it on an expensive TV than not. Good luck 🤞🏼
Thanks for this! I'm a gamer too so will likely go for the LG CX.
The general consensus is that LG is better for gaming as it has hdmi 2.1 and something called VRR. It is also said that the Sony has better motion handling and colours. So if you are buying primarily for watching movies and shows, then the Sony is better. The Sony will likely let you down on advanced gaming features that consoles are due to have down the path. I bought the CX from JL and it’s still lying untouched / unopened. Just had JL price match this, so I’m swapping as I don’t play console games. Both TVs are excellent - I understand that you’ll really only see a difference if they’re side by side. Had the Sony not dropped in price I’d have stuck to LG, which is also a bestseller.
