1. Size and price


In these three TVs, Sony X80J and X90J are available in three sizes, respectively 55/65/75 inches, while Sony A90J cut the 75-inch version, users who want to buy 75 inches can simply ignore the A90J.

As for the price, the mid-range entry-level X80J is the cheapest, 65 inches only $799.99, the flagship A90J, the 65-inch price needs $3799.99, 65-inch mid-range X90J needs $1199.99, so the price differs a lot.

2. Screen panels


In terms of screens, X80J and X90J are both traditional LCD screens, the only difference is in the light control processing. While A90j uses an OLED screen. (what is the difference between LED and OLED? )

OLED screen has the advantage of its own light source, in addition to better light control, but also does not need to carry the light-emitting module, so the body can be extremely thin and light, but the OLED screen price itself is expensive, which is the reason why the A90J is more expensive.

3. Picture quality


Of course, the most expensive one A90J has the best picture quality effect. After all, OLED screens are inherently better than LCD screens, so the color and contrast in the picture are better.

The biggest difference between X80J and X90J is the chip, X80J is equipped with last year's X1 chip, X90J is the new XR cognitive chip, and we all know that XR cognitive chip is better.

4. Sound effect


A90J equipped with the flagship version of the screen sound field, watching TV at home as if in the theater, and audio-visual synchronization technology, able to analyze the location of the sound in the signal, and then intelligently output the appropriate sound, Sony's flagship machine equipped with sound technology, is to achieve a better viewing effect to achieve theater-level feeling.

In contrast, the X90J and X80J sounds are not that good, X90J has a multi-channel screen sound field, X80J sound field is way too worse.

All the new TVs on sale this year, except the X80J, are equipped with XR cognitive chips so that it looks like the X80J is a product of last year's inventory clearance.

6. Interfaces


Many people do not understand what is the significance of the TV interface, to put it bluntly, the more interfaces, the more scalable the TV, low-end TV maybe just look at TV shows, while high-end TVs also need to connect Blu-ray players, PS5 game consoles, etc.

In terms of interfaces, the strongest is the A90J, HDMI2.1, HDMI2.0 and USB ports are all available, the X90J interface is the second.
