1. Appearance

All three TVs feature different designs. The Sony Sony A95K has a very elegant and sophisticated design. From the front you can't see any stand, all you can see is the entire TV screen and the bezel that is so thin that it is almost invisible. Its stand is hidden at the back, making the screen flush with the desktop, but of course, the stand is reversible, so if you want to place the TV against the wall, you can turn the stand to the front.

Samsung S95B, on the other hand, takes a more traditional design, configured with a solid-looking stand that doesn't take up a particularly large amount of space and is suitable for placement on a desktop. Due to the solid design of the stand, you may not be able to stick the TV to the wall, but it leaves enough space for the soundbar.

The LG C2 TV is a very thin and light TV, both in terms of TV thickness and bezel. This TV is 50% lighter than last year's LG C1, so the C2 OLED can be easily mounted to the wall. Of course, you can also mount the C2 on a silver stand, which takes up little space but supports the weight of the TV very securely.

2. Picture quality

The first thing we can be sure of is that all three TVs offer amazing image quality. Both the Samsung S95B and Sony A95K will feature QD-OLED panels, just as we've come to expect. QD-OLED combines the advantages of QLED and OLED panels to provide a wider color gamut, and richer colors. At the same time, this new technology allows the panel to have a longer lifespan than ordinary OLED panels.
